All of you up in the snow belt can stop being mad at me, your silence about the recent heatwave here is giving me a headache! Today was cool and rainy and the weather folks have predicted more rain through Tuesday.
I met a girl from Naples, Florida who was on a school trip with the Gulf Coast Marching Band. Her name was Summer,
I served a couple from Finland. She told me that last summer was the hottest in over 60 years with temps in the 30 C’s, and this winter’s already the coldest in many years.
“Oh god this thing would drive me nuts if I had it in my home,” said the middle aged woman to her friend as she pressed the horrible “Screaming Scream” toy three times i.e. which meant she replayed the nasty recording three times!
Hello? How come people don’t realize that the dreadful noise that thing make’s drives me crazy?
You have no idea what it’s like when every single person walks into the little children’s store, and presses the wretched thing. Boys always press it two or three times, and one more time after their parents, tell them to stop it.
Don’t tell, but I usually *hide* them, when I work that store…
“I don’t know why I had to buy it, but now I feel guilty!” an eleven-year-old girl told her friend, as I gave her the kaleidoscope she’d just purchased for $8.95.
I sat in one of the break rooms this morning and watched the man filling the vending machines.
“What are people eating now?” I asked him.
“Not much,” he said, “In December and in June I hardly need to fill the machines,”
I wonder why?
I noticed that a man was wearing an England World Cup Football tee-shirt.
“Nice tee-shirt,” I said
“Pity the team was so rubbish,” he said.
