I just don't get it
Sunday Scribblings! I can really get on a rant with this prompt! There is so much I just don't get! But let me rant about recent happenings. Like last week when we went into Manhattan and got hit by a bus! Well, more accurately, Rear ended by a bus! After a few seconds of innocently sitting in traffic waiting for a red light to change, This huge coach bus RAMS right into the back of our car. I just don't get carelessness like that ( unless you're Mr. Magoo). I ALSO just don't get The bus drivers rationalization in developing an attitude in that situation! Like, wouldn't a normal person say something like- " Oh no! Are you alright, I'm so sorry, I feel like Mr. Magoo" Instead this ass starts screaming at Mr. Petals and says "There's hardly anything there! Why are you making a big deal out of this. I'm not giving you my insurance information. This is bullshit." Mr. Petals says "ARe you kidding me, this is a brand new car and you've dented the bumper, Apparently you've never owned a car." So we wait in our car in the rain for the police.. 5, 10, 20 minutes, No cop. ( I just don't get that either). So, I call the police back and apologize that we can't wait anymore, we will miss our show. So we Vamoose, leaving a bewildered Magooish Ass standing in the rain by his bus and luckily we make it to the show on time. We are hoping when we get The front of the car fixed from this time, when we also got hit (which has STILL not been resolved,) We can have the back bumper repaired too . ( This poor car seems to be a newfangled magnet for trucks and buses)
If getting hit by the bus wasn't enough to dampen my week.... On tuesday I lost an earring. A valuable and very sentimental earring. I was at the mall with a friend and then we went to lunch. When I got home I realized it was missing. I called the restaurant and every store I was in and left my name and number. No luck. and I have to say... I just don't get it. Any time I find anything, whether valuable (like the time I found a wallet) or as worthless as an old mitten, I turn it in. I guess the someone who found my beloved beautiful earring is using it as a companion in their second piercing or they have tried to sell it. I just don't get it, I guess they must be the same type of person that I hold the door open for and they walk on in like I am the freaking doorman and even if I was the freaking doorman, I still deserve a thank you as do all the freaking doormen in the world.
I don't get people. Like I just don't get people in small businesses that Never call you back or never come to do the estimate they promised to do. What's up with that? Are people so super busy and their businesses just so lucrative, that they can choose to ignore potential customers with leaky gutters? I thought the economy was awful? I know I am finding it tough to pay My bills. We contacted several gutter companies for estimates. One out of five showed up. Last year we needed a new roof. What a job the hiring process became. Between the inconsiderate 'no shows' for giving estimates, and the VAST differences in price ranges... I just don't get it!
As we were talking last night, I was telling my husband that I was feeling a little blue. He said in a very animated comedic tone " Blue? Why should you feel blue? It's been such a good week! We only got hit by a bus and lost and earring. Not too bad compared to a lot of past weeks! right? Now,HIM?... I DO get! ♥ ♥
