Whew, I was exhausted when I got home yesterday. Let me fill you in. I started at the pool at 10:00, no one was there, I had it all to myself. It was warm but windy so the water had a "current" which I like, it makes for a slightly better workout. I did 45 minutes and then sat there until I dried off enough to come back inside and shower to go to do my errands.
This is where things started to take a downturn. Sort of. I had four rather heavy boxes to take to the post office and I managed to get them almost to my car when the maintenance man saw me and came to my rescue. Thanked him profusely and started on my way.
I decided to go to the post office in downtown West Palm Beach as it is the closest one to me. There was no nearby parking (buggers) so I parked far away and started to get the boxes out of the car. All of them. By myself.
Two different men walked by me with no offer to help (the boxes were stacked on top of each other and taller than my head - and heavy) so I made it to the door by myself. Good for me.
There is no one to open the door so I stand there until someone comes out and try to get in without the door hitting me in the a$$, which I almost managed to do. Only one box fell to the floor in this maneuver.
Next up, get in line. There is a place to put the boxes and slide them along as the line moves. Good. I inch my way further. There are two tellers there, one closest to me and one at the far end. The one at the far end calls me. The woman behind me in line has put her large box on the thing and left to look at stuff on the shelves so I cannot slide them any longer and must take them to the far end. As I struggle to manage this fete a man says to me "why don't you make more than one trip lady?" Thank you very much. So gallant.
Chivalry is dead people, I tell you it is so. With this in mind I decide to do something nice for someone before I get home. I will not be deterred by others lack of manners and good citizenship. No, I will not!
I get to the fruit stand and it is busy, no parking spaces. I wait my turn and start to pull in a space when an old man comes from the other way and guns it and takes the spot. (Here I might have said a bad word. Or maybe two.) Finally I get a spot and go in, I find lots of stuff I like and fill my cart, yay me!
Next up is a quick stop at the bank to cash a check. Since it's now lunchtime and Friday the inside is full so I get in the line at the drive thru. I have to go to the closest line because I need three rolls of quarters and the guy in front of me has to 1) get a pen from the teller, 2) find his checkbook (in his trunk!), 3) bend over and write said check, 4) get back in his car, 5) finally send the check in to the teller. After about four or so minutes the teller sends the check back out to him, he must go inside to cash it, I don't know why.
My turn! I say to the teller that I need three rolls of quarters and he leaves before I finish my sentence. (I also need 20 ones and one hundred). He comes back after a very long time and shoots me an envelope, wrong. I explain that he didn't let me finish and tell him what I wanted. He does it again finally right this time.
I decide to make one more stop for milk, I get cut off in the parking lot and (might) say one more bad word and leave and come home sans milk.
I still had not done something nice for someone (other than the four boxes I mailed) but that doesn't count as I already had them ready to go. I get the produce all washed and put away (I wash it first because I am a germ freak, remember?) and finally sit down and put my feet up for a bit.
What can I still do nice? Nothing so far.
Okay next up was getting dental insurance problem fixed. They are over billing me and I didn't know it until I called the dental ins. company to see why they had not paid a claim and saw that they had. Plus he is a contract dentist so I should pay the ins. rate, not the walk in rate. I pay $150 to have my teeth cleaned twice a year and the ins. pays $81 twice a year. They told me I am only supposed to pay $81 when it's my time to pay. Hmmm. I love this dentist and the hygienist too but the billing dept.? Not as much. Soooo, nothing nice here.
What can I do nice today, I keep trying don't I? Today is another day and I shall do something nice! Are you tired of reading yet? Did you even get this far? If you did, thanks, have a wonderful Saturday. I will too.
