Some people don’t seem to know the meaning of “mind your own business.” Actually, lots of people don’t. If people minded their own business, discrimination probably wouldn’t be such a big issue. Live and let live. This post isn’t going to be that serious though. Recently, I mentioned the gas shortage we had in our area after the hurricane, and how they made an odd/even gas rule to shorten gas lines. Things have gotten much better since then. So on Saturday, my boyfriend decided to get gas, even though it technically wasn’t our day to get it. The gas station was empty, so why not? The gas attendant didn’t turn us down, so we figured the odd/even thing had ended. Then this old guy walked up with a gas canister and stared at our license plate with the death look. He filled up, passed us again, and was STILL staring at our license plate. Then I noticed that there was a cop directly across the street from the gas station. So what did the old guy do? He started waving the cop over. UNBELIEVABLE. The cop ignored him and drove away, not that he would have given us a ticket anyway.
But seriously, who does that? How was it his business to make sure we followed the odd/even gas rule? I would understand if the gas station had a line of people waiting, but it was a ghost town. We weren’t making the old guy wait in line, and anyway, we use premium, so it’s not like we were wasting his precious regular gas. I guess some people just have nothing better to do than to make trouble for others. Douche bags. Part of me wishes I had given him a piece of my mind, not that it would’ve made much of a difference. (I gave him the finger as we drove away.) Still, I was pissed that he wanted to get us in trouble. I can’t imagine doing that to someone over something so trivial. We weren’t hurting anybody. Old man needs to get a life and mind his damn business.
On a COMPLETELY unrelated note, because I’m so random, I wanted to take a moment to say thank you. You guys are all so wonderful! I truly enjoy reading your blogs and getting to know you. And I am so grateful to you guys for reading my blog, especially to those who read and comment on every post, no matter how much it sucks. But whether you visit occasionally or every day, I LOVE YOU! This blog would be non-existent if it wasn’t for you guys. I also want to give a “shout-out” to a few people who nominated me for some awards recently…or like a month ago. OOPS. A big thank you to the following, and please check out their blogs:
I appreciate the nominations, and I’m sorry it took this long. The first time I received an award, I played by the rules. A few months later, I decided to stop participating. I think the awards themselves are great, and it’s an honor for someone to think you’re worthy of one. The rules, on the other hand, aren’t so great. I know some of you guys feel the same way. However, IF I ever get nominated again, I just might decide to follow the chain letter award rules. I don’t like certain things about them, but at the same time, I feel like a jerk for not sharing with you lovely people, because you all deserve the recognition. In the mean time though, just know that you are all awesome. I hope everyone has a great week!
