I did a little test today when out running errands. I saw a Petco cart in the middle of the parking lot and wondered how long it would take, or how many cars with people in it before someone would move the cart. Five cars. Five sets of people got out near or near ENOUGH to the cart yet no one made an effort to relocate it. I did. Pretty astonishing, and not in a good way. No one looked infirmed, as if they couldn’t move the cart. Cars drove around it to get out of the lot, yet no one wanted to be responsible for it. I don’t get it. It took me three seconds to walk across the lot to put the cart in the thingie for carts. Personally, I regard my CAR too much to worry that a left cart would end up dinging me. I guess I am alone in that thought.
I did get to Staples to buy some drawer organizers and had Mr. Chipper as a checkout person. Wow, he asked me Did anyone helped me find what I needed? Did I find everything I wanted? Did I have a Staples Rewards card? Was this my email for the receipt? Was I having a good day? I think he had a double espresso on his coffee break. But better that than the usual dullards.
And look, lo and behold, the transformed top drawer. I deep-sixed the old blue organizer that was gummed up and gooey and had a zillion things in it that I never used or were out of ink. Much much better. Let’s see how long it lasts.
Other than that, this is my birthday weekend and truth be told, I’ve already started celebrating. Sunday I’ll post some great photos that Earth Image sent in and Monday, stay tuned for the Whiskey A GoGo Booze Birthday Bash photos, which may or may not be in focus.
You may start sending your cards, presents, and best wishes now. 🙂
