THE FIRST NOTABLE THING
I GOT A TEXT MESSAGE FROM SOMEONE UNKOWN to me. The message said:
Now that the mortar has had time to cure we would like to finish the cleaning of the brick on Monday
Being a conscientious person I replied:
“Not Jim here. Good luck with your project”
Roger, who knows how to write clearly as evidenced by his [what I assume to be] erroneous text message to me, has not responded to my succinct polite response. Not even a one-word three-letter *thx* has Roger typed my way.
CONCLUSION? I do not like Roger who is a poopy head. He deserves dirty bricks.
THE SECOND NOTABLE THING
WHILE DRIVING DOWN OUR STREET TO HOME I realized that directly above me, hovering over my open car sunroof, was a medium-sized drone.
I quickly checked my rearview mirrors to see if I could figure who was controlling the drone. I could not, so I did what I thought was best. I looked up briefly, smiled, and waved hello to the drone operator.
I did not give the drone operator the finger, nor did I shut the sunroof. I played along like a kind neighbor, in on the joke, whatever it was.
CONCLUSION? I am a good pre-old person who deserves more praise for such.
THE THIRD NOTABLE THING
AS I WAS WATCHING THE YOUNG CASHIER GUY ring up my order at Kroger, I noticed that he’d made a mistake. He had charged me for .65 lbs of rutabagas instead .65 lbs of zucchinis.
[I don’t know how anyone could confuse zucchini for rutabaga, but he did.]
Now considering the last time I got into a conversation with a young cashier guy about produce and how my pear purchase peeved him [READ FULL STORY HERE], I chose not to say a word about the rutabaga/zucchini mistake.
However I realize that rutabagas were $.99/ lb while zucchini were $1.49/ lb meaning that I may owe Kroger $.33 for the zucchini that were more expensive than the rutabagas.
CONCLUSION? I will not lose sleep over this, but wonder how often I get charged the wrong amount for something?
