Tossed Salad Friday

~~ A woman is talking about an upcoming snowstorm, and her companion exclaims, “Oh, no! Should I be shopping now?” I guess that’s a new way to predict snow; instead of discussing inches or feet, forecasters should say, “You’re OK with whatever’s in your refrigerator,” or “Run immediately to the store and buy every loaf of bread you spot!”

~~ I was extremely agitated to hear a colleague say, “Who really cares whether a seller loses money or a buyer overpays? I just want the frigging deal to close!”

~~ I’d slam attorneys for not caring, but how non-lawyers care more about the customer/client/patient than they do about the commission/fee? My experience is that not many care. There are notable exceptions, but the retail clerk who says, “That looks fantastic on you!” is often as insincere as the doctor who spends two minutes before making a pharmaceutically-dependent diagnosis.

~~If you’re a proofreader, I’d suggest you apply to USA Today. Their site’s proofer must have recently quit!

~~Hey fashion mavens, if leggings are sold next to pants in the store, how come leggings should never be considered pants?

~~Last week, I had my coat under my arm as I walked around. This week, there aren’t enough coats to pile on and scarves to wrap around to shield me from the cold.

~~ If you haven’t read the NY Times “Invisible Child” series, please know that it is absolutely worth your while and your consideration: http://www.nytimes.com/projects/2013/invisible-child/#/?chapt=1
