I’m sorry if any of you have a weak stomach.  I will make this quick, but must share because it makes me so damned miserable.  I almost threw up today.

The guy who picks up the garbage at work pushes the garbage cart around.  It makes the whole office suite smell like throw up.  For at least 10-20 minutes the stench lingers. Lysol and Febreeze don’t help too much.  It is disgusting and very distracting.  I promise I won’t talk about this anymore.  Thanks for listening.  The end.

While shopping at Bed, Bath and Beyond yesterday, I was prevented from paying for my purchases for several minutes due to the following exchange between a customer and the cashier.

Customer: Hi I need a copy of a wedding registry.
Cashier: What is the name of the bride and groom.
Customer: His name is (I don’t remember, we’ll just call him) Groom ToBe.
Cashier: Ok, I found several Groom ToBe’s. What is the wedding date?
Customer: Um, I don’t know, I think it passed. I think sometime in April maybe. I don’t really know.
Cashier: Do you know where they live?
Customer: Uh, in Willis, or it could be Houston, I don’t really know. I mean, he is from Anahuac, but I don’t know where they live now.
Cashier: What is HER name?
Customer: Oh, no, it’s a boy. His name is Groom ToBe.
Cashier: What is the bride’s name?
Customer: I don’t know, um…Bride something. I don’t really know.
Cashier: Ok, I found it. Their wedding is in June. It will take a few moments to print out the registry.

So my PSA for today is: Before you head out shopping for a wedding or baby registry gift, why don’t you double check your wedding or shower invitation or call a friend to find out the important information. For registry purposes, I’d say the 3 Ws are pretty important…who, when and where. If you don’t care about the people enough to know the pertinent information, why are you even buying them a gift in the first place?

Seriously, anyone who knows me just a little bit knows I’m not one who is easily offended.  I’m all for people being able to do what they want.  But I’m still not a fan of clothes with slogans/sayings on them.  Take exhibit A:


I saw a young lady wearing a shirt similar to this today while I was walking to a meeting across campus (same words, a little different style).  Working at the university, you can see just about anything.  As a PSA (public service announcement) to anyone who might possibly own something similar and is pondering wearing it in public, you almost NEVER come across as classy when wearing something like that.  You might think it is cute when your (small) child wears a shirt that says something along the lines of “don’t you wish your girlfriend was hot like me” but it’s not.  And it’s also not flattering for most people to don velour sweat suits with words like “juicy” written on the butt. 

I’m just saying.
