Okay, I can’t even with OmaSteak, thanks so much for naming one of pieces of farming equipment, or what you called a manure spreader after me, I’m so honoured.  I’ve always known that you were a mansplaining misogynist hiding behind fake “good manners” by insisting on addressing every single comment with Mrs. Bisson.  Insert eye-roll here.  And now you’ve also gone and called me a Twit.  How lovely of you.  Charming.  Anyway I invite you to stay off my blog, and I insist that you refrain from commenting since you clearly don’t want to be here.  This is the final thing I will ever say to you; you can try and call me out for living freely on my stolen land with my homes all you want, I’m not the one who thinks the current US administration is handling this situation right at all.  I’m not the one that thinks no illegals should be allowed citizenship to any country.  I’m well aware of my roots, I’m first generation Canadian from a German and Romanian mother, with a father of Irish and Scottish decent.  Which is why I humbly say that everybody deserves the right at a better life on this stolen land.  EVERY SINGLE HUMAN FROM ALL RACES deserves to live freely and wholly.  You disagree, which is why I suggested that you check your privilege.

But, that’s enough of that and enough of him.  Chapter closed.  C’est fini!

So let’s lighten the mood shall we!!

What IS with people who jaywalk but do not have the ability to hustle their booties across the road??  And why do they always seem to do it when the light is green in my favour, AND meters away from a legal crossing zone???  Are they trying to get hit by a car and claim personal injury???  What are they doing??? Hmmm…

Like I’m sorry but crossing streets these days is dangerous and serious business with all the distracted drivers out there, do it properly, get your hustle on and get across that street!

I cannot for the life of me even understand the people who do NOT stop at stop signs, because they want to be in front of people, but then they drive under the speed limit once they’ve “pulled their move”?  Excuse you, but why did you not just wait your turn?  You gave the illusion that you were in some sort of rush.  But I guess what you’re really just trying to show everybody is you’re an entitled, self absorbed individual.  Mystery solved!

Another thing that is sort of in keeping with the stop sign jumpers, was another driver I came in contact with today that blew right through a crosswalk.  All because he didn’t want to have to let anybody merge in front of them.  Yup almost took out a dad and his young son just so he could get to the red light first.  Why?

Why are some humans the way they are???  I truly don’t get it.

Also, people who jump lines at stores, I get that I did have a shopping cart overflowing of household goods for the cottage, which we’re moving into this Saturday, YAY, cannot WAIT.  So I appreciate that my five hundred items are not fun to end up behind when you have three.  But how about you ask a person before you just jump in front of them and act like you didn’t see them there?  I mean I’m the sort of person that if I see a customer with significantly less than I’m purchasing when there is only one cashier on, I invite them to go in front of me.  But this woman gave me no chance to be polite and generous, she just took what she wanted, and jumped right in there and when I mentioned to her that I was already in line and in fact next she nervously replied with; “well they closed the cash that I was in line for and told me to go to the next cashier, because she was closing…”  nervous laugh, shifty eyes.

I smiled and said; “I’m sure she wasn’t suggesting that you come to the next cash line and just jump to the front of it, I’m pretty sure she was telling you that her line was closed and that you should go to the next one behind whoever was already in line waiting…”

Shifts from one foot to the other, nervous snickering…

“Don’t worry about it, I’ve got plenty of time and lots of stuff, go ahead and cash out.”

But really, when have you ever walked up to a cash register when the staff has put up their closed sign and you took it as your personal invitation to go jump to the front of whichever line you first came upon???  I’ve NEVER done that when I’ve had the misfortune of sashaying up to a checkout that was closing just as I got there.  I do what most decent world citizens do and take my ass to the back of whatever line I’m hoping is going to go faster.  But I suppose some people don’t, and that my friends makes me go “hmmm, hmmm, hmmm.”
