In the Middle

If it's not in all caps, it's not a rant.

Honestly, I try not to complain too much. It's counterproductive and takes alot of time and energy. That's not to imply that I don't get annoyed or that I don't complain; I do. I just try to be selective about what it is I'm complaining about.

If there's one thing that drives me batshit crazy it's when people stop and stand in the middle of the aisle while grocery shopping...with their shopping cart...blocking the aisle. Oftentimes these same people are completely oblivious to the traffic jam they're creating as indicated by the fact that they glare at you like you're an ill-mannered a**hole who's trying to shove your way past them. The nerve. My advice to these people is:

For the love of all that is holy, 

Ser.i.ous.ly. I would never shout this to them of course, because my mother did teach me manners. (And I did go to a Catholic school after all.) In this case, what I say and what I think are two very different things. If that's an example of hypocrisy then so be it. Personally, I think it's an example of self-control. ☺

A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 15:1


  1. That and people who stop within two feet of walking into or out of a building. I mean, for God's sake, the lobby is 30x30 and yet you can't walk 10 feet into the space to get your bearings and leave the entry clear for others OR upon exiting a building, pause to put their sunglasses on or look for something in their purse (sorry, ladies). I mean, did it just occur to you that the Sun was out and you might want to shade your eyes or that NOW is the time to look for your car keys because you have 150 yards to walk to get to your car through a spacious and parklike setting?
