Hope everyone’s Memorial Day was a good one. I’ve always liked the idea that we have a day set aside to honor those who gave the ultimate for all of us. Now, I have a few thoughts I thought I’d like to share with everyone.
I was sitting in my car in a Walmart parking lot the other day while the hubby ran inside to pick up something. He’s one of those people who shops like a military strike force. Move quickly and ignore everyone and everything to accomplish your objective. Anyway, I’ve learned it’s better to just wait in the car. As I watched people come and go, I saw a blind man being led by a seeing eye dog walking into Walmart. I’m thinking that must be one well-trained dog if it can distinguish what’s on each aisle, much less know what the man means when he says “tomato sauce.” In fact, I was so curious that I followed him into the store a ways just to observe. I did get a little embarrassed, though, when his wife, who apparently had been several steps ahead of him, started giving me the evil eye. I did what anyone caught in such a situation would do, I quickly picked up a can of something irrelevant making some sort of comment like “oh, here it is,” and make a quick exit. I just sat the can of whatever down on another shelf. I think of it as job security for the people stocking the shelves.
Why is toilet paper (or tissue for you more refined readers) wrapped in a child-proof cover? And why is it that it’s easier to remove when you’re not in a hurry for it?
Why do fast-food restaurants that charge you $5.95 for a burger of some type scrimp on such things as the mustard, mayo or pickles? I figure the bun probably cost a dime, the meat maybe fifty cents, and all the rest probably a quarter. So take a knife and put something on that dry thing. Jeeze!
Why does a motion sensor at a stoplight always work against you? If you’re not already in that turning lane when it turns red, that stupid light will make you wait a complete change.
Why is gold worth so much more than other metals, such as steel? I mean, how many buildings have you been in that were made completely of gold? I would venture to say most of us have been in one made of steel. Who decides these things?
Why don’t criminals watch the police schedules and plan their crimes when the police are changing shifts? That way it would be more confusing over who responds to their robberies or whatnot, and they might have a better chance of escaping.
Have you ever tried to reason with a mouse? If he is smart enough to get into your house and evade a trap, seems to me he should be smart enough to understand “Get out or die.”
Recently heard about a woman who was driving herself to the hospital because she was in labor. She stopped by to pick up her husband who was at work, but she continued to drive because he had a physical problem that prevented him from driving. While driving toward to the hospital, she suddenly felt her water break, and the baby “slipped out.” I’ve never had anyone use that term about childbirth before, but anyway, her husband grabbed the wheel and steered while she gave birth then and there. I’m thinking this woman is a humdinger driver because she can give birth while driving and still not have an accident, yet so many of these bozos around here can’t even talk on a cell phone with getting in a crash.
Hope everyone has a great week, and thanks for reading.
