Hey gang,

Let me vent a sec here!

If I told y'all that I think we have made our lives "too convienent" would that make sense??

Story time:

Went to the post office this morning:

Elderly lady mailing Xmas cards and packages -- only 4 other people in line -- and it's only 930 (AM) --

I notice a gentleman getting aggravated by this women's list of mail/packages --

I looked at my watch -- and she had only been at the counter "5 MINUTES" -- literally -- then this gentleman starts with the smart comments.

*blood begins to bubble*

Lady leaves -- this gentleman goes to the counter and wants his mail to be forwarded IMMEDIATELY -- as in TODAY -- as in "DO NOT DELIVER TO THE HOUSE TODAY"

When the clerk tells him that will not occur - this guy goes off and starts using a line of swearing that made me physically nauseated!

I have made myself this promise this year, I will get through this Xmas season with out screaming at a clerk -- loosing my temper -- and basically enjoying the season. Let alone, let someone else do the screaming.

I immediately walked up to the counter and told the customer that if he would have done this in an appropriate manner -- he would have the service he wanted and that the clerk did NOT make the rules, but only tried to help the customer to the best of his ablility and that I was through listening to his FOUL MOUTH AND HE SHOULD APOLOGIZE TO THE CLERK AND JUST LEAVE.

And he did it!

I decided then and there -- I will not listen to impoliteness, rudeness, or just plain foul language.


So, lets pass around a little kindness with the presents this year and MAKE THOSE AROUND YOU HAPPY OR ELSE! -- ;p
