Wednesday Weirdness #310

I accidentally dropped a $5 bill walking out of the store on Monday. I typically am careful to put all the bills I receive as change away so it happens only rarely. However, since I still use cash, it likely won’t be the last time. And, it’s always rather annoying whenever it happens.

When we were crossing the street on Sunday, a driver got angry at the driver of the car in front of her that was turning left because he didn’t chase us out of the cross walk so she could proceed. Long loud angry beeps on the horn. Screaming out the window. We were crossing with the traffic signal. So, yielding to pedestrians was proper. And, it doesn’t take that long to cross the street. It was an ugly and unsettling display of road rage on an otherwise quiet morning.

I received an amazing number of “Now that your back, has [a certain task] been completed yet” within the first few hours that I was back online. Of course, they just added to the clutter that I had to sort through. Some days it seems like I spend more time sending status updates than actually getting work done.

Walking into work today I saw TWO cars turn the wrong way onto a one-way street. The driver of first vehicle realized their mistake and immediately turned around in an alley. The driver of the second vehicle just kept going with everyone honking and swerving. They either didn’t care that they were going the wrong way or they didn’t notice. I just watched their arrogance or stupidity in amazement.

I received a reply to an email I sent from someone that put me in somewhat of a bind which was already frustrating enough. But, it subsequently it became clear that they hadn’t read the other five emails I had sent previously. It’s annoying trying to interact with people who may or may not read or respond to emails. Especially in the 21st century.

I got some “help” yesterday that was neither wanted nor appreciated. I didn’t say anything since I was very unhappy with what occurred and didn’t want to say something that I shouldn’t have. Now that I’ve reflected (and, hopefully, calmed down a bit) I’m definitely going to say something the very next time I see this particular individual.

It’s been a year since I stopped regularly eating donuts. Since then, my weight has stabilized about 10 pounds lower than it used to be. I know I ate a lot of them; but, its amazing that moderating just one food and one more day of exercise could have such a dramatic impact.

I had the pool company come out and look at the heater that didn’t come on this weekend and, of course, it worked perfectly when they were here. We’ve had issues occasionally this summer; but this weekend was the first time there was a consistent problem. So, a service call seemed reasonable. I’m glad that there wasn’t something else that needed replacement. But annoyed at having to pay for an unnecessary service all.

Wednesday Weirdness #302

The change engine oil soon notification is appearing whenever I start my car. It’s actually very annoying since it blocks the dashboard display and has to be explicitly dismissed rather than disappearing after a set time like the other notices. Especially since “soon” is sometime in September. My vehicle is well maintained. But I don’t change things super early.

Wednesday Weirdness #300

I got locked out of the building today even though I had stepped outside almost an hour before it’s supposed to be locked. Fortunately, there were still people going out so I didn’t have to wait too long to get back inside. Still, it was annoying that they are not following the schedule previously communicated.
