Just one of those weekends

Now why did all the nut balls have to go and behave this weekend?

Odd as it may sound I have not observed any outlandish behavior over the past couple of days. What can I tell you? It's bizarro world.

So I will be relying on you all to provide colorful tales in regard to the Weekly Behavior Awards.

We will review those tales and post 'em some time Sunday evening.


  • Gotta nominate the white haired guy who, on seeing me trip up the kerb & land heavily on the pavement (clutz!), stopped his car & crossed the road to come & check that I was ok. He offered to help me up (no, thanks, I'd rather just sit & collect myself for a few minutes) & told me about the walk-in treatment centre just round the corner if I needed it (I didn't).

    On my assuring him I was ok, & thanks very much for bothering to check, he crossed back over, got back into his car & drove off. There are gentlemen out there! Yay! I now have grazed right elbow & knee & left ankle, oh, & the odd stiff bit where I landed!

  • I know this is an early one (Wednesday 8/9) but I JUST had to share. This is for the rudeness award- Hubby and I went on a very rare lunch out(I took him!)to a place near where I work. The waitress was an absolute doll! There was a 30ish couple with a 3-4yearold in a highchair one table away(also this waitress'). AS I watched, this kid took the plate, crayon,sippycup and whatever else the little dear could get his paws on and throw it on the floor. Dad(all sylishly duded out) sat and just kep talking on the ever present cellphone. Mom looked up from reading(?)(also very stylishly dressed), looked at the floor and went right back to reading. Never got up, never said anything to the kid, didn't even acknowledge there was a sizeable mess on the floor. This must have happened at least 4 more times while they were there. Each time, either one of the waitresses or the bus boy came around to clean up. Of course, they left a huge mess for our waitress to clean up!
    It's things like that that make you go hmmmmmm...and "people" wonder why the kids are the way they are...
