I went to the Doctor yesterday. I don’t like going to the Doctor. Had bad experiences as a child, I’m not afraid, it’s more just uncomfortable, I guess.
Anyway, I’m in the waiting room, it’s been 15 minutes past my appointment time already. I can feel my blood pressure rising from nerves. I brought a book to read, but I couldn’t get past the first paragraph with any comprehension whatsoever. Decide to look for a magazine.
Lady across the way from me has a People, Oprah, and some other readable magazine. She’s got them stacked on her lap, queued up to read as if she’s going to be in the waiting room for hours. All that’s left for me is basically “Highlights” for adults. Why is there always someone like that?
Do you think they can make those disposable gowns out of recycled paper? That would be nice.
Retail rant… went to Sur La Table today. I love the store. I dislike the employees VERY much (my grandmother taught me to never use the word “Hate”). Substitute that in your head as you read. Here’s the conversation I had w/ one of the “workers” there.
Me: Hi there. You know how you have those paper disposable baking pans back there?
Me: Well, I was wondering if you had any in a loaf shape?
(As an aside, they had weird shapes only. HUGE rounds for cakes. Who bakes a single round cake and brings it to someone in a disposable pan? They had clover shapes. I don’t even want to think about what that shape is meant to do. They had heart shapes. Come on people, how about a loaf?)
She: Did you see a loaf shape?
Me: Umm, no, that’s why I was asking, I thought you might know if you were out of stock, or they were located somewhere else more ‘traditional’.
Her: Must not have them then.
Me: (Under breath). That was helpful. Thanks.
I walked out. Put my basket back in the pile of baskets w/ the other items I had intended to buy still in it; I hope to never buy anything there again.
