Listening


If the person you are talking to doesn't appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear." Winnie the Pooh

How did your day go yesterday? I don't think the stars were aligned.
Mine was a series of annoyances. Including but not limited to: bad hair day, my shoe fell apart, I saw kittens beside the road that were obviously dumped and got caught in a rainstorm when I was walking at lunch. But my grievances paled in comparison to a co-worker's. While driving to work she was behind a truck that had a portable basketball hoop in the back unattached. You know the one's that are on a long post and roll around on wheels. You've probably figured out where this story is going. Yup, you guessed it. It flew out of the back of the truck, luckily landed in front of my friend's car instead of on it then bounced to the side of the road. The driver of the pickup......just kept going.

  1. That's.....insane. Driver should have been stopped by police and been cited!

    Glad your friend was okay and escaped a potentially deadly accident! Some people should not be allowed to drive a truck, if they don't know to secure things they're hauling!

  2. Yep - some days have a higher pukeability factor than others.

  3. Amarinda, You got that right.

    Molly, A few years back, a couch fell out of a truck in front of us and we got ticketed for hitting it. Go figure.
