Along with everything else going around, there appears to be an epidemic of rude behavior.
Pulling into the gas station yesterday, assessing there was no need to mask up, as I could see through the window only two customers roaming around inside, none at the counter, I entered maskless, stood at the counter, waited while the attendant set up pizza in the microwave.
He approached the counter, asked how he could help me but, before I could say $30 on No. 6, he began coughing.
Though he put his head down, did not cough towards my face, I nevertheless began taking steps backwards, away from him.
Whereupon, after done coughing, he took both hands and laughingly, with a backhand sweeping motion, began waving his germs towards me.
What is wrong with people!!!???
Needless to say, I was not amused.
I turned around, walked out but, if he thought he’d so offended me that I was leaving, he thought wrong.
I went to the car, dawned my mask, walked back in, requested $30 on No 6 to his now somber looking face.
He couldn’t see me laughing behind the mask at his discomfort at seeing me so pointedly exiting, returning all masked up, but maybe he could read the amusement in my eyes.
She who laughs last laughs best.
I feel for the customer that ordered that pizza.
Gas station pizza is precarious eating at best and totally dangerous eating when handled by a guy who’s not wearing gloves, switches to the cash register where he handles coins and dollar bills, thinks it’s funny to wave his germs at a customer and then returns to removing the pizza from the microwave.
Because Friday is the Day After Thanksgiving, the Office closed, the Community Room unavailable to us seniors, this week’s Bingo Friday has been moved to tomorrow ……… Monday.
Monday and bingo on the same day!!!! All I need to make the start of the week extra challenging is rain.
As Trainer is taking no days off for the Thanksgiving Holiday and my workout days (M W F) don’t fall on the actual holiday, after I get through tomorrow, the remainder of the week is a regular week for me …… except for a trip out of the area for the latest covid booster.
Don’t yell at me, but I’m late getting this shot because I wasn’t planning on getting vaccinated again because of problems I’ve had with skin rashes ever since I began with the vaccinations. However, wanting to get a look at the new baby next month, I’m taking the precaution.
Besides, with no help from the medical professionals, through trial/error I’ve discovered the cure for what had been plaguing me was organic castor oil and a homemade rice filled heating pad.
So, I'm not too worried about a reoccurrence, now that it's under control and can be handled so easily if necessary.
So anyway, looking at the news of holiday travel already in progress, I’m beyond happy not to be preparing for and facing that nerve racking drive to Long Beach this week.
I’ll be facing all that soon enough — next month, around Christmas.
