I'm sorry. That sucks.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

RE: Ranting corner
Do people not have any situational awareness? Or peripheral vision?

It seems I can be literally standing at my register under a flashing white arrow that says 'Cashier here!' while wearing a blazing red shirt and dancing in circles, and people still won't see me.

Seriously, they would walk up within 5ft of the register, stop, and look around bewildered when I'M RIGHT THERE. I sometimes shift from foot to foot or wave at them incase they're like t-rexes and their sight is based on movement. Some people actually get surprised, as if I'd suddenly materialized right there.

Maybe I have secret invisibility powers?

Facepalm

Ignorance is not to be ignored.

Thank you. The cat was one of a kind. We got him from Free cycle. He was only 9.

Are you quiet? I have a suspicion that their sight might actually be based on noise.

Well shit. Yesterday marked 25 years of sobriety and I forgot to drink a toast to it. Angry

Well done! Thumbsup

Not on the same scale but been 18 years since I had my last cigarette.

Though having a near fatal heart attack was a rather drastic cure strategy - not recommended...

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.
