So let me start by saying I had a nice weekend. My DH, Dad, and I went to a Casino on Saturday and ate at a buffet. I unfortunately lost my 90.00 investment but no worries, I had a great time. We had dinner at the buffet and I was proud of my choice to stick as close to the salad bar as possible. I will admit I may have mistaken a cheesecake for a carrot. But overall I wasn't that bad...
We unfortunately were unable to walk as we had planned, I didn't want to take time away from my dad, so we each worked out on our own.
Sunday we went to the lake and hiked for a bit then went home before it started to rain. We watched movies and had a couple glasses of wine. It was definitely a nice weekend.
Which brings me to my original topic - So this morning, we got to a bit of a late start and we made a Starbucks run. (love their oatmeal) We usually only have Starbucks on Fridays and the rest of the week we make breakfast at home, but last night we were up late watching Love and other Drugs. So anyway, this particular Starbucks has a drive thru so its our go-to Starbucks Friday place. We pull up to the drive thru on the wrong side of the drive up area ( which happens frequently due to poor layout) but when this happens its usually a who pulled up first and then the merge is respected. We pull up a few seconds before a woman in a gold SUV and as usual pull up assuming the "I got here merge". Now at this point my son and I are talking and in good spirits. Well this poor woman must have had a crappy weekend and was in dire need of coffee. She starts flashing her lights and me, honking, and yelling obscenities!!! Now I will admit that I like most have a temper every now and then but I was genuinely in a good mood this morning. So I lowered the window and said "really?" to which she replied Bleep Bleep how dare u bleep bleep ur a bleep bleep and U BETTER BACK THE BLEEP UP I SHOULD BE AHEAD OF U." So at this point I could have A/ cussed back and made as much of an ass of myself as she did. or B/ take the high road and ignore. well I started giggling because I realized we were to grown women surrounded by other Starbucks patrons in this heated honk/cuss/meltdown. At that point the line moved and I continued my path to coffeeland and chose to ignore. So she then backed up and sped off.
The moral of the story.....
A/ Respect respect respect. No point in shouting back it will only escalate things.
and most important...
B/ NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, let anyone get in the way of ur coffee. ... really?
HAVE A GREAT WEEK EVERYONE!
