Oh No! I’m One of THOSE People

You know the type who stop at the end of the escalator to look around or fiddle with their purse in the only doorway of a store? I can’t stand it when people do that. So irritating, right? Well, guess what I caught myself doing today? Yep. My daughter was crying in her stroller. I wheeled her out of the store and stopped immediately on the other side of the door to check on her. I actually engaged the stroller brake, walked around to the front of the stroller and played with her using my car keys. By the time I was finished, she was smiling. When I stood up, I saw a small cluster of people giving me the evil eye. Jolly great. Dangling my keys while chatting “who loves you? who loves you?” wasn’t going to put a smile on their faces like it did Olivia’s.

I’d better get it together. Next thing you know I’ll be sitting through the green arrow in the turn lane while talking on my cell phone or shaking a person’s hand after sneezing into mine. I think we are all one mindless moment away from getting on other people’s nerves. Maybe I won’t assume the person to be a moron so quickly the next time.

    Hee hee! I actually came to a full stop at a green light about a month ago. Boy did I get the horn for that one. I can’t tell you what I was thinking. It was after class, and I actually did want to get home. Apparently they wanted to get to wherever they were going even more than I did!

    We all have brain meltdowns at one point or other 😀
