boy, I'm sick and tired of people pushing ahead of me in line but I was put in my place a few days ago and was rather embarrassed by my rude reaction........I'm so used to being pushed by the locals that when a nice (well ,rather nice looking----ok i'm not dead yet) put 4 bottles of beer on the counter..........I growled "I'm next"........he excused himself in English.......new twist here........where are you from.....Texas......oh.........Bush.........I look back at him and feel really guilty for being so abrupt..........I pay for my purchases and apologize for being rude but I've had so many people push their way ahead of me with no apologies whatsoever.......my biggest fear is that I'm going to collapse on the ground here one day and people are going to walk over me...........he just laughed..........I was ready to adopt him right then and there as he was probably the same age as my son and had dimples just like him.....he said no problem.......goodness I've been in a weepy mood......it's just what I needed to hear then........thank goodness for guys with dimples.........

Men with dimples are the best (I married one!!!). I am glad it renewed a bit of your faith in the people....if for a few minutes.

I can relate to many of your posts so often and makes me smile, not at you but with you. It seems we get stepped on too often and then when we retaliate we are embarrassed as we now are the ones we resent. Makes us feel so guilty (especially if he is as good looking as you say). I am sure we will get stepped on in the future.

We must all be related in some way as the things that affect most of us bothers others on this site. Is it because we are interested in food? Don't know the relation but thanks anyway for sharing. Also grateful you have husband that understands.

I am so sick of this stupid, piece of crap house!!!!
It's 35, a year older than I.... good grief I hope I dont start to degenerate like this next year....
Something is wrong with the drain somewhere..... the downstairs toilet and sink both drain very slowly.... and when DH was showering this evening I could see the drain in the floor of the utility room slowly rise....
DH thinks it may just be the piece of PVC my 4 yr old threw and flushed down the toilet last week..... boy I hope so cuz if not its a problem with the septic system and that would make me just commit myself to the looney bin. He can't do anything until tomorrow and lord knows he'll bee too tired or something. Stupid overnight shifts.

This is my other problem..... on his watch, when I work, PVC GOES IN THE TOILET!!!!!
ok fine, legos go in noses on my watch, but COME ON!!!!
