Beep Beep

I bumped (literally) into a problem I’ve seen often lately…people who abandon empty shopping carts in supermarket aisles. Do some moms let kids shop for themselves then put stuff in Mom’s cart and leave theirs to clog an aisle? I even saw a motorized cart left blocking an aisle. Would a disabled user just walk […]

Please don’t introduce me…

Please don’t introduce me…

The other day a merchant offered me “a great introductory price”, very little every month for a year. “What’s the price next year?” I asked. He answered, “Oh, Umm…well you see, we, umm…haven’t set next year’s prices yet.” No straight answer! I think anybody with low, low, low introductory prices might be ashamed of their […]

Move your butt

Move your butt

It looks like some disgusting kind of confetti. But it’s butts. A couple of businesses around town with a bunch of employees don’t allow smoking indoors. So the workers take their breaks outside to smoke. Then they drop dozens and dozens of their grimy, slimy butts on the sidewalk every day. And nobody ever picks […]

Mine is better than yours!

Mine is better than yours!

OK, your computer/phone/tablet brand is so much way better than mine. It’s the Uber gadget that tops everything. Now go away and stop bragging. I am so tired of people trying to instill computer envy. It’s almost Freudian. It reminds me of that old saying about cars… the only thing that malfunctions in any car […]

I know it’s not mine…

I know it’s not mine…

But it’s not yours, either. And that bugs me. The other day I was in a restaurant where condiments and napkins were set out beside the counter for people to take for their burgers and dogs. A Catsup packet or two, some relish and mayo, that’s fine for everybody. But the girl beside me snatched […]

Food for thought…

Food for thought…

Sorry, Bubba, you’re not eating at my table. So when I went to my favorite restaurant last week – yes, the nice one with table cloths – did I have to hear your whole conversation? I don’t care about your kids, your sore knees and your dentist’s bad breath! Nice job of killing the buzz… […]

Too cold?

Too cold?

Hey Dude, I know it’s cold outside. But I’m getting tired of hearing people complain about it as if it’s a big surprise. It’s winter. That’s just the way it works. Remember, winter starts in Decem-burrr, doesn’t it? That was a hint. Bundle up. I’ve heard gloveless car window scrapers whine about cold fingers, bootless […]

Unplug your kid

Unplug your kid

The other day I was in the food court at a friendly, local Bigg Boxx store and watched a nice family that obviously included Mom, Dad, kids and cousins and a couple of Grandmas and Grandpas. They were enjoying a lunch together for holiday shopping. Laughs, hugs, chatter were shared by all… except a couple […]

Cigarettes

Cigarettes

Can anyone explain to me why smokers think it’s OK to put their cigarettes out by rubbing them against the wall of a building for everybody else to enjoy? It leaves black marks – if you haven’t noticed – and then then throwing the mashed cigarettes on the ground only adds to the mess. Sick […]
