    My cat won't get off the table, and I don't want to move her.

    Today I went to pick up our chainsaw from the hardware store where we had the chain sharpened. Not only was this a day late in their promise to have the chain sharpened yesterday, but I had to wait at their service counter for a full ten minutes before someone acknowledged my presence. When I finally got our chainsaw back, the guy who sharpened the chain had apparently forgotten to write down the cost of the service charge on the little tag they tell you to pay at the register with. Upon my arrival at the register this became known to me. The cashier had to call the service department and have them send someone to the register to correct the error so I COULD PAY THEM. This resulted in having to go to the back of the line (in a store that has five registers and only one open btw) and wait some more. Naturally the two gentlemen in front of me had multiple items and were paying by check.

    This actually really irritated me.

    Edit: AND TODAY IT'S ******* RAINING! YESTERDAY WAS BEAUTIFUL AND IF I'D HAD THE CHAINSAW WHEN I WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE IT MAYBE SOME WORK COULD HAVE GOTTEN DONE!

    I had a similar experience at a pharmacy in the mountains this past week. Who the hell writes checks in the store anymore?

    I was able to resist the temptation to firing it up and sawing everyone into chili ingredients. I am celebrating this personal victory with a Pabst.

    We live in a relatively small town...people still write checks, but they're old people that everyone knows.

    It's raining and I didn't bring an umbrella. I'll either have to run under the rain to get to the car or wait until the rain is over before I can go home, in which case I'll have to stay at work longer than usual. And I'm hungry.

    You could treat the rain as a baptism which clenses you of sins? Like Shawshank Redpemption.

    Me too, plus sore throat and rising fever. My kids have both been sick, it was coming.

    I just bought a new iPad (yay--Happy Mother's Day Tracy) and the software update is taking several minutes to download.

    I am going to ride out the last 30 minutes of my shift checking out the boards, but I would rather be going home.
