Inconsiderate People Make Me So Angry!

DannyLast night I needed something from Publix so I left my hotel room and I drove the 2 minutes to the store.  I go in and buy my dairy-free ice cream.  When I come out there is a lady parked beside me putting her groceries in her car.  She then proceeds to place her shopping cart directly in front of my car instead of walking it the extra 15 feet to roll it into the cart cage.

When I saw her leave the cart there I shook my finger at her and asked her why she would be so incredibly lazy to leave the cart so close to my car that if it should roll 1 foot it would hit my car.  She completely ignored me and got in her car and drove off.

Have we gotten to a place that people are so absolutely and completely self-absorbed that they think they can just crap on anyone around them?  I hate to vent, but it just pisses me off when people blatantly disregard other people.  I hate to say it, but a few bad apples make me want to hate everybody.  Not really, but kinda.

Confession Time: My Love of Coffee Causes Sweet Dreams!


Confession Time: My Love of Coffee Causes Sweet Dreams!

As you might deduce from the title of this post, I love coffee.  I’m not sure when my love for the morning cup of joy developed, but I find myself looking forward to my morning cup the night before when I am setting up the percolator.   And before you begin thinking I’m addicted to the caffeine I will inform you that I only drink decaf.

I have found the old-school percolator to make the absolute best cup of joe and Evelina and I have experimented with nearly every brand of coffee maker.

It might sound crazy, but the thought of a new brand of coffee waiting to be tasted in the morning sets me up for a great night’s sleep.  I get excited like a kid at Christmas.

On the opposite side of this experience is waking up in a hotel, walking downstairs to the breakfast buffet and getting a bad cup of coffee.  Luckily for me this morning I got a great cup to launch my day!

Okay I’ll release you from the torture chamber that is my rambling.  Hope everyone has a relaxing Wednesday!
