WHAT A DAY!!!!!

FIRST OF ALL, I READ ALL THE COMMENTS ON MY BLOGS AND I THANK ALL OF YOU WHO RESOND.

 

YESTERDAY, I WENT TO THE LOCAL CONVENIENCE STORE FOR THE MORNING PAPER. AS I PARKED, MY CELL PHONE RANG AND I GOT WRAPPED UP IN THE CONVERSATION. NOW I FINISHED MY CALL AND WENT INTO THE STORE, WHICH WAS QUITE BUSY. STANDING IN LINE, I LOOK RATHER NORMAL. A WOMAN CAME IN SHORTLY AFTER I DID, AND INFORMED ME I WAS PARKED IN A HANDICAP SPACE WITHOUT A PLACARD. BEFORE I COULD TELL HER I FORGOT TO HANG IT ON THE MIRROR, SHE BEGAN LECTURING ME, IN HARSH TERMS, ON MY WRONGFUL DEED. WE WERE ALL TAKEN BACK BY HER FORCEFULLNESS. SO I EXCUSED MYSELF FROM THE LINE AND LIMPED TO THE CAR, BROUGHT MY PLACARD IN, AND BEGGED HER FORGIVNESS. SHE TURNED RED, WE ALL HAD A GOOD LAUGH, AND I WON'T FORGET AGAIN. FIRST TIME IN FOUR YEARS AND I GET CAUGHT.

 

NEXT I WENT TO WALGREEN'S TO PICK UP SOME MEDS. AS I WALKED DOWN THE AISLE, WITHOUT CANE, I NOTICED TWO KIDS BEHIND ME, MIMICKING THE WAY I WALKED. THE PARENTS WERE DIRECTLY BEHIND THE KIDS. I STOPPED AND TOLD THE KIDS WHY I WALK THE WAY I DO, THEN WALKED BACK TO THE PARENTS AND SUGGESTED THEY GO HOME AND TEACH THE KIDS SOME MANNERS.

 

THEN MY WIFE AND I WENT TO PICK OUT FLOORING CABINETS, ETC. FOR A TOWNHOUSE WE ARE CONTEMPLATING BUILDING. WE WANT WOOD FLOORS ALL OVER, EXCEPT CARPETING IN THE BATHROOMS AND TILE IN THE BATHROOMS AND LAUNDRY ROOM. WELL IT SEEMS YOU CAN ONLY GET TILE IN THE FOYER BECAUSE THE COMPUTER WON'T SUBSTITUTE WOOD UNLESS YOU BUY ONE OF THE PACKAGES. NONE OF THE PACKAGES GIVE US WHAT WE WANT, SO IT WAS TILE AND THAT'S THAT. WITH THE HOUSING MARKET THE WAY IT IS, YOU WOULD THINK THEY WOULD PUT WOOD IN THE FOYER. SO WE WISHED THEM AND THEIR COMPUTER WELL AND LEFT.

 

THREE FOR THREE. RATHER THAN TAKING A CHANCE ON RUINING DINNER, WE WENT OUT AND HAD A LOVELY TIME.

Good for you, Marty. I especially liked the part about teaching the kids manners. The parents probably have no idea what you were talking about. Manners is like a foreign word to so many people these days. I would hope that my two grandsons would not act in a similar way because they know about me.

 

Glad you had a good productive day.

Marty,

 

Individuals can be soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo rude! Good for you on your comments. Heaven help my child if I ever hear of her being rude like that to someone :whack: I do hope you are able to finally use the type of flooring you want. Hope your dinner out was good.

How some people like to rule others' lives. I don't understand why some people think they can be so judgmental of others. I hope the lady doesn't live in a glass house.

 

The way I walk sometimes, I mimic a drunken sailor, I believe and I'm waiting for someone to report me to the police for "drunken driving." Hopefully those kids you talked to learned a valuable life lesson.

 

It always boggles my mind that when an company is attempting to separate you from your money that they don't offer the very things you want. Wouldn't it be simple to have a dialogue box in the program where the operator can type in the additions that the customer requests?? Maybe I am too simple. Take Care. LK
