Patterning your life around other’s opinions is nothing more than slavery.
Some people just never give up. And I can applaud the effort it takes to defend a point of view that is dear to the heart. I mean how can a person sit there and tell me with a straight face that because they believe something is wrong I should follow their rules?
Like I said, I applaud the effort. But I laugh my ass off behind my polite smile.
So the LDS church is trying something new to convert me. 😛 Instead of sending in young boys (17-19 yr olds) or The Annoying they are now sending Lyo and I young girls. So far- nothing overly pushy. Just a question about the church here or how I was raised there. ~shrugs~ Nothing really.
But they are coming back next weekend or the weekend after (I have to get to the phone before Lyo does this time) for dinner (Lyo and his big mouth) and to discuss a movie they left for us to watch. ~sighs~ No I’m not going to watch it. I have other things I’m supposed to be doing that I’m putting off to watch tv or lay in the sun.
Speaking of the sun- we are finally seeing summer! 80-90 degree temperatures. Light breeze. Blue sky. And the best part…. I don’t have to work with the idiots that come to town. 😀
I’m sorry but if you bring 3 screaming kids down and let them run into the highway or into me while I’m on the beach I’m not going to be happy. If you get snarky with me because there are 5 other people ahead of you I’m going to get annoyed. If you are 40 years old and start cussing me out because your ice tea has ice in it I’m going to get pissed. If you are 18-35 and think it is still cute to comment on breasts, asses, and sun tans with whistles/howls/etc I will want to rearrange a body part of yours. And if you insist on wearing your hat to the side to pretend to be some dumb shit from a music video I will try to hit you in the back of the head like a Gibbs Slap.
So here is some free advice.
1. Try to be polite. Even if your customer service person is a dipshit that is no reason to take it out on anyone else. If they are really bad, just cancel the order and leave. No one is holding a gun to your head to make you stay.
2. Remember that the driver next to you/behind you/in front of you may be armed. The chances are even better if there is a gun rack showing through the window. Tail gating is not the best plan. Passing on a blind corner or double yellow line is not a plan as much as it is suicide attempt. We will all get to where we are going sooner and safer if you just take a deep breath.
3. If you can’t keep up with the posted speed limit PULL OVER. Remember that the car coming up behind you may be that one asshole that will push you off the road right by the cliff or into on coming traffic. Be nice and pull over. You’ll get your nice quiet drive. And we get to go to work on time. And yes sometimes that is life or death situation.
4. Don’t go swimming in the ocean. I know it sounds like a great idea, but if you haven’t done it then don’t. You are not quite ready for the bone numbing cold that is our ocean here. You may have swum in the ocean in California, Hawaii or even in Southern Oregon. Trust me- it is different here. You aren’t ready. And if you haven’t dealt with a rip tide don’t go out period.
Though if you want to make me really happy- just send money and stay home. You’ll have a great vacation without travel and we all make money down here.
