Aloha Friday - Week Recap



I am trying to get back into some meme's: Head over to An Island Life and join in the fun!


Welp, this week has been insane - to say the least. Today is truly the first date that I have sat down and done nothing. My busy week started Monday and continued on through yesterday. It was a long week, but I am thankful that so much has been accomplished. Of all the things that have happened this week - two things stick out in my mind that happened - neither of which I had planned and both just make me sigh and say, "Some people DON'T get it."

1) I got a new car - a 2010 Kia Soul, it's a new model and so you don't see a lot of them out (though I think I see them more now that I know what I am looking for). I had to run errands the other day and was sitting at a stop light in my pretty new car. Someone was turning onto the road I was on. It was a redish/pink car - I don't know how to describe it, but to me, it seemed rather girly.

There are two young early 20 men boys in the car.

They make it a point to slow down and yell out their window - "Your car is so gay!" My window is down so I just look at them and smile. In my head - though - I am thinking, "Well man, now that I know YOUR the authority on good cars, I'll make sure that the next time I buy a car I will consult you, wouldn't want a gay car would I?" Really, it just makes me wonder why some people are the way they are. It annoys me that people feel the need to be so rude and rather pathetic.

But the same day...

2) I am at Meijer getting some groceries and I buy like 10 things and go through the self check out. Anyways, I am almost done - I have like 3 things left to scan and this couple comes up behind me and is just STARING at me, watching me, acting as if I am not being fast enough or something. They are huffing and sighing like they are in a big rush (might I point out that there are other u-scans open at the time - all of them except 2 are open and not being used.) I scan my coupon and pay. I grab all the coupons that come out and head down to the end and start bagging. The lady starts scanning her stuff...all of it coming down and hitting mine. She looks at her husband and says, "Bob (I think that was his name), will you go down there and stop our stuff since the lady is STILL bagging." He comes down and gives me this dirty look (I am done at this point) and looks at me like I've been this slow human being....I walk off and here her say, "God, I can't understand why people are so d*** slow." I just let if go - but again, I am left wondering why people are so rude and inconsiderate. I wasn't being slow at all and she was the one that was practically throwing her stuff down at me.

So, this makes me wonder:

HAVE YOU EVER HAD A MOMENT WHERE SOMEONE JUST MADE YOU THINK, "Some people!"?

Of course I have thought that. Like with the man earlier this week that slapped the 2 year old in Wal-mart. What was he thinking?

Heatherlyn said...

Your examples are great examples of really truly rude people! The nerve!

Yes, I think this quite a bit. I do not understand how some people can arrive at the conclusions they do. And I have even less of an idea at how you get to the point of being rude and harrassing to perfect strangers.

Yep, but since what I'm thinking is pretty judgmental & not in a good way I'd best keep it to myself!

Sounds like you had a rough week & I LOVE the Kia Soul commercials. I actually had one playing on my blog for awhile. Glad to know you love it.

SageMom said...

Yes, many, many times...too many to write about here...

I often think that about people, but I know they think it about me too. It takes all kinds lol

Oh, definitely. I wonder often, "Didn't their parents teach them anything?" (This probably makes me sound like a true mother. Not sure how I feel about that.) I live in a college town with a lot of young mothers so people seem to think it's ok to give me a look of disgust when I'm in the grocery store trying to calm my crying baby, as if they think the world's problems can be blamed on my procreation.

I'm soooo sorry people were mean to you! Anytime someone is rude to me like that, I just feel sick to my stomach forever. I know I shouldn't care--I don't even know them--but I still hate it.

HUGS!!

Kailani said...

Amanda said...

Auntie E said...

Smellyann said...

Carrie said...

Yes, that is so frustrating - it's like people go out of their way to be mean - crazy!

Yes just recently and it really upset me. I don't like hearing anything negative.
