The other day I was in a gas station's convenience store. I was buying about $2.50 worth of stuff, a water (though I was pretending it was a diet Dr. Pepper) and a snack (it had lots of chocolate on it because I roll that way).
I hand the clerk a $20 bill, and she said, "I'm sorry, I just opened and I don't have change. Do you have anything smaller?" I said no, and then she said, "Do you have a debit card?" Again, no. I left my stuff on the counter and said, "Guess I can't buy this," and I left.
On the way out, she said something about being able to make change. So she could have made change, but it would have been inconvenient for her. So instead, she made things inconvenient for me.
If I would have had change, I would have given her a five spot. Okay, I have no street cred (typing "rolling" and "five spot" just doesn't suite me). But it seems like the convenience store was not very convenient.
I hate the Congress. This daylight savings time change has really got me peeved. On top of that, the phrase "Winter Forward, Fall Back" doesn't make a bit of sense.
Your Business is Important to Us
Have you ever been on the phone, calling up some 1-800 number, and been told that all of our operators are busy, but ""your business is important to us." That phrase ticks me off. If my business was so freakin' important to them, they would pay for a couple more operators.
I heard an example recently that went something like this: "A black man robs a liquor store, and two days later, another black man robs a liquor store. One should not naturally assume that all black men in this town rob liquor stores." My question is this? Why assume the race of the person; how about the gender of the person? Both factors were common to the two incidents; shouldn't the reasons for conclusion be about the same as well.
I don't have a tattoo and don't want to get one, but you know, I like those little tattoos in the small of one's back. If I was not so OCD (needing to keep everything "the same", not even coloring my hair), maybe I would have something there.
Lack of Energy
I really did not want to post today. I lack energy. I almost called in sick. Maybe I will feign illness later today. You know you are getting older when after a night of passion, you sort of wish you would have gone to bed earlier. Well, half-wish.
