~~The man in line ahead of me was telling his companion how much he hates lawyers. “As far as I am concerned, they can all rot in hell!” I cleared my throat (I am shameless) and he turned around. “I bet you agree,” he said to me. “Oh, no,” I replied. “If I am going to rot, I’d like it to be in Hawaii, not hell.” I’ll give him credit-- he looked a bit sheepish as he turned back to pay for his greeting cards!
~~Know what hurts worse than having your time wasted? Paying someone to waste it.
~~My health insurance bill is increasing by $600/month, to $24,000/ year for three people. The insurance companies have this all figured out--they bleed you dry on the premium, betting you won’t have the $40 co-pay each time you need to actually see a doctor and $50 to get a prescription filled. They are making out big-time on me, sadly.
~~The cessation of the election robo-calls is welcome. I had at least seven from former Governor George Pataki last Monday alone. If I had even the slightest desire to vote for the candidate he supported, she would have lost my vote anyway. I can’t imagine the voter who is just sitting around thinking, “I can’t decide what to do. Maybe someone will call me and tell me how to vote!”
Thank a veteran today (and everyday). Have a great weekend. Please Occupy Somewhere!
