    54 F | 45 F

    Partly Cloudy Chance of T-storms
    20% chance of precipitation . I have chances of rain the next three days. If it stays reasonably dry I’ll run the dozer, if it rains I have a customer that needs a patio door put in and some work done on her computer.

    It's 30 F and the predicted high looks kind of like wishful thinking. We'll get snow today and tomorrow. I haven't looked at the models yet but I'll be following them closely today.

    TOTD: Not thinking ahead with the small stuff. You know you have use a key card to get into a building. You have to use it on every freaking door, every time. Well, why not get your card out as you approach the door instead of making the rest of us wait while you search your 15 gallon purse?

    You are standing in a checkout line. You know that you will be forced to pay for your items shortly. Why not find your wallet now so you'll have time to make your leisurely perusal of your 18 credit cards without holding the rest of us up?

    The list is endless. It's not that I'm a transaction speed demon, either, it's just that 2 seconds of thinking ahead can save a lot of fumbling.

    Nice outside, but a little dark. We might get some rain.

    TOTD: This time of day, just about everything pisses me off.

    How about waiting ten minutes in line at a store with four people ahead of me, when it was my turn the girl said that register was closed. I looked over at the other lines and they had at least three people at each one so I left a full shopping cart there and went to walmart. How hard would it have been to tell me when I got in line. The light was on when I started waiting!

    35 today

    TOTD: God where to start. When driving but not sure where you are, how about pulling to the side so the motorcade behind you can go their merry way?

    If you're driving and see someone you know, why not pull to the side to have a conversation instead of holding everyone up and feeling put out if we beep our horn.

    I would have asked her name and told her that I am going to find a manager. If she had a lick of sense, she would have checked you out. If not, she might not be working there anymore. I have threathened store clerks for crappy service before and they change their tune in a hurry.

    I left work early to get last minute Christmas shopping done and clean the house before everybody shows up tomorrow. It's freezing here. I'm contemplating buying a pair of gloves while I'm out.

    TOTD: I've practically been living at work lately so I haven't had much interaction with the outside world. I think I pretty much hate people though, IIRC.

    Did they give you a closet at work? For your shoes?

    TOTD: Bad thing is, this is my wife that does this.


    You go to, say, McDonald's drive thru. Pull up to the sign and hear, "Let me look. I don't know what I want." How in the hell do you not know what you want at a fast food joint before you get there? You already know what they have and you know what you like. Where is the break in the thought process?

    She's a woman. You have to ask?
