Perhaps they're handing out free samples of stupid pills at the door again. I know I know I sound awful. Maybe this person never had a sandwich before or this is her first time shopping for food, but when you deal with the public you will come across all kinds. I work in a very urban area. It's only about a mile to the Boston line and there is definitely a difference in the clientele from an urban area and the suburbs. At one time the city I work in was the stolen car capital of the U.S. I know. Back in the 70's I had my car stolen 3 times there. It is small, 4.2 square miles holding 77,000+ people. 40 years ago the population was nudging 100,000. It has changed since those days and for the better. You still get the locals who have lived there, their whole lives and people who moved there for it's proximity to Boston and many college students. There are many Asian students. Some who can barely speak English and yet are quite pleasant and are often easier to understand than a local who has lived on the same street for 40 or 50 years. Ah life with the public.
A little peace of mind.
So here I sit Saturday morning waiting to leave for work for my Saturday late shift. I am going to try and weasel out early since I have overtime. I may be able to watch some of the Red Sox playoff game early this evening. Boy did they look good yesterday. I do believe I am going to hunker down on Sunday and not do much of anything.
Well thanks for reading my whiney blog entry. Work beckons.
I'm outta here... in 7 minutes.
