THIS KIND OF STUFF HAS GOT TO STOP IN OUR COUNTRY
We Must Stop This Immediately!
Have you noticed that Stairs are getting steeper Groceries are heavier. And, everything is farther away. Yesterday I walked to the corner and I was dumbfounded to discover how long our street had become!
And, you know, people are less considerate now, especially the young ones. They speak in whispers all the time! If you ask them to speak up they just keep repeating themselves, endlessly mouthing the same silent message until they’re red in the face! What do they think I am, a lip reader?
I also think they are much younger than I was at the same age. On the other hand, people my own age are so much
older than I am. I ran into an old friend the other day and she has aged so much that she didn’t even recognize me.
I got to thinking about the poor dear while I was combing my hair this morning, and in doing so, I glanced at my own refection……… Well, REALLY NOW-
even mirrors are not made the way they used to be!
Another thing, everyone drives so
fast these days! You’re risking life and limb if you happen to pull onto the freeway in front of them.. All I can say is, their brakes must wear out awfully fast, the way I see them screech and swerve in my rear view mirror.
Clothing manufacturers are
less civilized these days. Why else would they suddenly start labeling a size 10 or 12 dress as 18 or 20? Do they think no one notices that these things no longer fit around the waist, hips, thighs, and bosom?
The people who make
bathroom scales are pulling the same prank, but in reverse. Do they think I actually "believe" the number I see on that dial? HA! I would never let myself weigh that much! Just who do these people think they’re fooling?
I’d like to call up someone in authority to report what’s going on — but the telephone company is in on the conspiracy too: they’ve printed the phone books in such small type that no one could ever find a number in here!
All I can do is pass along this warning: We are under attack! Unless something drastic happens, pretty soon everyone will have to suffer these awful indignities.
PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SO WE CAN GET THIS CONSPIRACY STOPPED!
PS: I am printing in a larger font size, because something has caused my computer’s fonts to be smaller than they once were.
I have not been around the last few days. You may ask, so what were you doing? One word, PAIN. The knee is still swollen and I am sleep deprived. Friday was the only night I have slept through the night. Last night someone called me, had the wrong number at 1:30am. So I have been a bit of a…, how do you say it here? Bi*** I made the trip to the ER on Thursday. Without insurance I knew they would see me there. So I went, to the smallest hospital around, prepared for hours wait. No one there. I was in and out in 30 minutes. Record time I suppose. And they didn’t even charge me. I probably have a torn meniscuses but if so, it is minor and would not require surgery. They basically said keep doing what I was doing but stay off it more. So how exactly do you do that? I live alone. Someone has to walk the dog and I do have to eat and drink. I was sent a gift to help, crutches. This has lessened the pressure on my leg, which is strained in the calf and hip now, but darn those things hurt in a whole other way.
I went on a job interview on Wednesday. When I arrived I met with the owner of the company. It turned out it was the same guy who recruited me last year for a different company. I was surprised to see him but he was not surprised to see me. He was surprised that I followed through with what he recommended and tested for my state license. He was thrilled. I went back on Friday for the second interview with the "mentor". We had a delightful conversation and I enjoyed meeting her so much. I was there in the office for over an hour and felt really at home there. Friday I was at peak pain level and at times near tears if I had to walk. Well regardless, they offered, I accepted. I stipulated I could not start until my knee was better. They understood and so they are sending work over that I can do at home next week. I have to complete CE classes online by Monday. I have 8 hours to complete today. This job takes me out of my comfort zone but it is a chance I have to take. But if there ever was a time and company to take a chance, this is it for me.
Well I need to get the classes done. I have looked in on some of you the past few days but not feeling well enough to comment. I hope you understand. When I complete my class work I hope to visit you all and leave comments. If not today then Monday as the job won’t send anything over until early in the week. Hope this finds you all well. Enjoy your Sunday.
