The Last Straw


I've had it up to my eyeballs with the general public. We did some shopping today, I know, I'm crazy. It seems that people forget how to drive when it's busy or something. I had one lady block the entire intersection right in front of me for an entire light cycle. Traffic wasn't blocked where I was going, but because she absolutely had the be the next person into the Kohl's parking lot, all of us that were just trying to get through had to wait.

I'm tired of being run into, pushed, cut off, etc. in stores. My sister and I used to pretend to be rude people in stores and run into each other on purpose. We laughed and laughed!

But, the last straw just happened at the post office. So I just had to mail a simple package. I walked in and there was this THIN person moving very slowly, you know, the kind of person that's "thin", like a straw. Well, this one was a little on the obese side and it was obviously interfering with her ability to walk. Me, being the nice person that I am, didn't try to hurry up and get past her in the short walk from the door to the line for the counter. I just casually walked slowly, after all she did enter the door before I did. It would have to be a very rude person to run ahead and cut her off, right?

But then out of no where, this second THIN person enters the scene. This one was a little less obese, so she was able to maneuver herself rudely in front of me, but she didn't darn cut the other THIN person.

Wait a minute!

I was like, did she actually just do that?

Then, it's "her" turn to go up the the counter and she takes FOREVER! She had the postal worker pull out every kind of stamp that was available and took her good old time deciding on which ones to buy.

I had a simple package, one minute's worth of counter time.

I can help but wonder if she would have cut me in line if I was THIN like her?

Okay, I know I might of lost some of you with my "thin" comments. If you are curious I'll fill you in on the whole story. Those of you who do understand, do you like my title, ironic eh?

Heh, nice pictorial, too.

Don't worry, it will get worse before it gets better, and then come January you'll really appreciate being able to navigate Belden Village or get to the front of the post office line easily. :-)

Your mom made us new kitchen curtains with the scraps from our other curtains, and they are SUPER cute. Then Ken and your dad installed a new semi-track light that got rid of all the shadows. It's like a new room! I'll blog when I get the gumption.

Love and miss you guys!

the traffic might get better but the country will start to get worse because of another "thin" person.
