Today started out like any other day but by the time I got to work, I was ready to chew glass. It must be “See how close you can follow Greg day” or something like that because no matter which road I was on, someone was right on my bumper. Now I don’t mind if people do that and then pass at the first opportunity but these people had lots of time to pass they just wanted to get up close and personal and blind me with their headlights. So in an effort to shake one relentless tailgater, I made a quick stop at a local gas station. I figured I could shake this fool and get a nice cup of coffee to calm my nerves.
So I got to the coffee counter and poured a nice big cup of Joe and then started looking around for the creamer. There in front of me was a big sign on the cream dispenser saying; Sorry out of order. No biggie, I can always use those little tiny tubs of creamer. Well guess what. Those were all gone. But wait, I have a third backup. So I reach for the dry, non dairy creamer but my hand brushed my cup and splash, there it goes all over the counter. I looked over at the checkout counter for help but there were 10 people in line and only one person working so I took all the napkins and wiped it up as best as I could. I didn’t do a very good job because they ran out of napkins and it was a large coffee.
So after paying I headed back on the road with coffee in hand. (Yes I got another cup.) And just as I get back on the road, guess what? Another fool gets right behind me. This one followed me for 10 miles some of which was a 4 lane road so he had no reason not to go around. For the last 5 miles, I slowed down and enjoyed my coffee.
Then I get to work and the day must have changed because now it is “whine day” and everyone is whining about something. By the time 9 o clock rolled around, I am thinking about going postal and I just had to get away. I went for a walk to calm down. I took a stroll around the cooling tower pond and this is what I saw. Needless to say, I am in a better mood after seeing this beauty but I still wanted to vent a little and get it off my chest.
