887: When they run out of your fav seasonal candy

Go to fullsize image Go to fullsize image Go to fullsize image

So Easter is coming and I don’t know about anyone else but I think it’s the best holiday out there.  Nothing is more fun than finding random hidden eggs and getting all dressed up to get dirty and then sitting by a giant rabbit and smiling!

Go to fullsize imageI always get excited because Peeps come out and now they have come  out in all sorts of color like green, pink, and blue apart from the standard yellow and now they have rabbits.  I think hey need to stick with standard chocolate rabbits, but what do I care I just can’t get enough peeps.  I know I went shopping yesterday and felt truly bad for m friend because she wanted pink bunnies and really they didn’t have any 😦  Sad face I know I even went up and down all the 500 checkout aisles at Walmart to see if they had them nope – not even close all chickens no rabbits!  They had every other color for the rabbits but no pink ones.

Well at least she got her Robin’s Egg candies.  Although she pouted it still wasn’t the same…now how awfully sad is that?!

Awful!

891: Leaving your wallet in the car at the check out line

Nothing says I’m just as forgetful as all get out when you’ve checked out a grocery cart full of items and then at the moment the total is chimed that you realized you left your wallet in the car.  All you have is a quarter in your pocket.  As you frantically search your pockets you are stunned to realize that it fell out of your pocket in the small space in the crack of the car.  Nice!

Don’t dare turn back to look at the long line behind you at the after work shopper’s rush.  The guy behind you isn’t glaring at you but think how awfully much of a dummy you are for forgetting.

893: Getting to the store at the cashier turnover time

Go to fullsize image

Late at night close to midnight seems to be the deadest time to go shopping at Walmart.  As much as I like Walmart at times I just found tonight to be quite annoying as I went to 3 Walmarts to find one item, I know I know just check online.  But when they don’t have the product you’re looking for the old classic store to store hunt is the only viable option. Each store looking a bit more distressed than before although the 2nd one was a lot more put together than the 3 and the final Walmart well they were retiling the floor, but what got me was the worker who just sat at his machine sitting there relaxing while everyone was working and glared at me with a death stare to get back to shopping!

Go to fullsize imageIf you’ve ever shopped at Walmart, one knows that nearly every night close to midnight that they always do a register shut down and all the registers are stalled for nearly 15 minutes.  To even add to the impatient timing, they close one set of the double doors.  Sometimes not always the same set one time it’s the grocery side the next time the retail side.  Who knows which side it will be and at exactly when will they shut it down?  Sometimes they don’t have employees redirect you there so you’re caught standing there waiting and in the upper UPPER right hand corner in a small note they have a post stating the doors are closed until 7:00 a.m. the next day.

So as you finally get through the 25+ person line because they only have 2 registers open the 10 item or less (where you know some people have 25 items and you stand there looking at them with rage) whereas you only have a gallon of milk, a loaf of bread, and the latest Tuesday release DVD.  So once you get to the register they seem as upset as someone stepping on your toes and you make it through finally since the cashier decided to ring each of your items as slow as possibly and grunt a goodbye.

Thankfully I’m halfway awake to even care, now where did I park?  Great on the other side of the parking lot!  Now how awful is that?!

896: People Who Procastinate

 

https://i1.wp.com/www.about-personal-growth.com/image-files/procrastination.jpgThere always those people who just have an excuse why they can’t hang out cause of some dry excuse like they’re busy.   Even people who just can’t even complete the most mundane tasks because they wait to the VERY last minute to get things done.  I hope that assignment wasn’t important cause it took you almost 2 months to complete it!  Well I’d finish this but Ugly Betty is on, so…..

Now how awf

909: When your phone drops in between the seat and door

As if we aren’t distracted enough between checking the texts at red lights, checking missed calls while on the road.  We really should just be focusing on driving.  We all know that but do we do it?  Sometimes we cringe because as one friend told me, “I can’t help but stay connected!”

Well as you reach to grab your phone as it rings and as you make sure you are staying safely in the lane you accidentally drop the phone in the space between the car and the door and can’t seem to grab it.  The phone neatly buzzes there looking at you laughing at you with it’s glowing little “1 Missed call” eyes.

As you reach the phone slides further between the crack and your hand isn’t thin enough to make the wedge to safely grab your phone.  Thankfully you’re at a red light now you can slide back your seat and reach but apparently you still can’t reach the phone.  So now you have to unbuckle your seatbelt crouch under your seat and grab the phone.

HOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!

Green light and the car in front of you is half a block up the road!  Now how awful is that?!

924: Finding Someone’s Mail (in your Mailbox)

Go to fullsize imageOn my journey through the DC metro area my buddy and I were walking through the streets of Dupont Circle when as we were crossing the street we saw a guy pause while he was walking, look down to the ground, then walk onward.

When we came to the spot where he was we saw that he was looking at a piece of mail with someone’s name on it.  We picked it up and looked like it had sat in the dirt for a moment.  It was snow on the ground after the two most recent snow storms that blew in as of recent.  We shook off the snow and looked at the heading.

Odd why wouldn’t it have been mailed?  Right behind that mail was another piece of mail with the person’s name with a yellow “return to sender” sticker.  As I walked around the corner to see if maybe a mailbox was nearby (as if I knew the area) I saw another letter and another out in the road!  My friend yelled out there are 2 more in the street!

So here we are hopping the side street forts of snow to run out into the road to grab this unidentified person’s mail!  We finally stood at the corner and saw that they all belonged to the same person!  Who was this person?

Needless to say I took the mail home with me, I know doesn’t help with it now being 3 hours away, but I think if I take it to the post office they might be able to help the person.  I just hope they get their mail it was sent to the wrong place!

Just as bad as getting mail from your neighbor in your mailbox.  Now you have to slip it at their door or wait till when they get home and hand it to them.  Always the odd look of “Gee thanks” when they take from you.  Now how awful is that?!
