A couple of things happened today that really pissed me off. So, as I'm preparing to go back to work from lunch, and drinking my last sip of diet coke, I happen to look out the window and notice that half of my mail box is gone. It's like the bottom half was still there, the second half- GONE. WTF?? As a side note, I live on a really busy road with a mailbox that is really close to the road; therefore, this is not our first mail box incident. Anyway, I see our brand spankin' new mailbox torn in half and the anger is just a bubbling. Luckily, Adam was home and able to run outside and fix the mailbox. My question is, why can't people stay on the road?? Is it that hard to drive in a straight line? And, if you're driving your car and happen to hit some one's mailbox and break it, wouldn't you kindly pull over into these people's driveway, apologize, and offer to buy them a new mailbox?? Yeah. People need to learn some manners, and just plain common courtesy. This was not the first time that this has happened, and it probably won't be the last. Uhhhhhh!!! All I've got to say is Thank God for Lowe's and their plastic (but super durable) mailboxes. Over it.
My second incident/interaction with a rude person and/or people occurred when I was walking out to my car at 5:05 pm. I got to my car and this lovely note was stuck to my windshield, "Next time, park in my car!" Ooookkkkaay. The note confused me at first, and then I realized that they were complaining that I parked too close to their car. So, I have several opinions on this little note and I'm going to share them:
- (1) Yes, I do understand that I might have parked too close to your car, but did you ever think that the reason why I parked too close to you is because the person that was two spots over from you might have jacked-up parking skills?? Maybe the reason why I was so close to you is because I had to be to get into the space.
- (2) In this instance, I probably should have gone to find another parking space. But, when you hit the jackpot on a prime parking space close to the location where you're going, wouldn't you grab that too-tight spot and make it work? I mean, I drive a freakin' Jeep- not that big of a car, buddy.
- (3) There have been plenty of times when I have walked out to my car and found that someone was parked too close to me. Did I pitch a hissy and write out a note?? Nope. I silently cursed them and went about my business, because guess what? I have better things to do!
Here's to a better Tuesday!!
