Tossed Salad Friday

~~ I had to act out the pit-flashing attorney for people all week long after they read about her on Tuesday.  One attorney at a meeting yesterday said, “Is she from [Long Island town]? I said, “Yes,” and he said, “I knew it!”

~~ An acquaintance was recounting the recent Parent-Teacher night she attended. One parent apparently wouldn’t stop asking “ridiculous” questions, until another parent shouted to the teacher, “Who’s in charge here, you or this talkaholic?”

~~ I heard a guy on the radio say, "I'm against a minimum wage. I want to be able to decide what to pay my workers." When questioned about how workers could afford to live in his area if they earned less than $7.25/hour, he said, "I don't care what they do when they leave work."  In other words, you don’t care if they live in their car and eat only fast-food from the dollar menu? How fast will your business grow if all the others around them (and across the country) fail because underpaid workers can’t afford to feed, clothe, and shelter their families?

~~ I received an e-mail from a colleague that struck a chord:  I just spent three, yes! three! hours at a closing arguing about whether the sellers had pulled a fast one and swapped out the newish dishwasher with a crappy one. 15 minutes in, I didn’t care, and 90 minutes in, I wanted to yank the few hairs I have left in my head right out. How the hell can people fight for almost half a day over an appliance?

Have a great weekend! Let me once again add a team to those I will exhort to rise against others’ expectations…

J!-E!-T!-S!  JETS! JETS! JETS!

GO, NY KNICKS, GO!
