When eating recently at an airport, I noted that they gave me a metal fork and a plastic knife. At first I thought that they were implementing cost saving measures by introducing plastic silverware. But then I realized that forks are a utensil where as knives are a weapon.
I couldn’t help but notice that one of my fellow air flyer was charging his his phone at the airport at 5:30 AM. I had to wonder if he had been up all night partying and didn’t have time to charge it during the night.
While flying recently, I noted that several people were paged at the airport. It occurred to me that getting paged at the airport is usually not a good thing. So, when I got paged, my heart sunk. Fortunately, my luggage had arrived early was was ready to be picked up at the baggage counter.
I recently read an article entitled “8 uses for leftover wine”. The article was interesting but since I never have leftover wine, I couldn’t relate.
The former Grand Rapids City Clerk is suing the city for wrongful dismissal. She claims she was fired because of racial discrimination. The City said that she was incompetent.
Her original suit was for $1,000,000,000.00. But then she realized that she had made a mistake and meant to sue for only $1,000,000.00.
I think that the city is correct in their assessment of her abilities.
Well, I just discovered that Crock-pots now have carrying cases. That is right, when you finish slow cooking your favorite dish, you can transport it in its very own insulated case. And we now have one.
I wonder how I ever lived with out it?
Holidays in the office seem to be getting more and more complex with each passing year. While Thanksgiving and such are no big deal, Christmas now seems to be a major stumbling block.
In past, we could have a Christmas luncheon, but not any more. First, there are the Vegans who not only want a special menu for them, they are also offended by the other menu items. And while the Hindus don’t agree with the holiday, they are contractors and will go along with it regardless of their beliefs.
But, we also have those who have converted to Buddhism. And even though they were raised Catholic, they find this holiday celebration to be offensive and therefore, will not participate.
Thankfully, I am not on the planning committee.
Every time that I buy a new car, it comes with options that I have never had before on a car. And, every time that I discover these new options, I come to realize that I can’t live with out them.
At the funeral of my late wife, I was amazed to see people that I have not seen in 40 years. Now, I am not talking about friends of the family, I am talking people that I personally knew and have not seen in 40 years. And, I have not heard from them since the funeral.
I find their sudden reappearance to be interesting. But then again, funerals bring out a lot of strange people.
