Walmart Line Cutters
Posted February 21, 2011

It's a given that going to Walmart can be an experience - almost like a visit to a different world.  As the popular site, PeopleOfWalmart.com, it can be a visual experience.  Or a downright frustrating one as I had tonight.

Youth today vs. yesterday
Posted February 7, 2011

When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were. When they were growing up; what with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning.... Uphill... Barefoot... BOTH ways...yadda, yadda, yadda

Communication Breakdown
Posted January 22, 2010

Let's face it - we are more dialed in than ever.  We carry around our Smart Phones, we have wireless internet on our Netbooks etc.  We are almost NEVER unreachable.  But wait a minute.  Is that true?  How many times do you call someone on their cell and they don't answer?  Seems to me that before everyone and their cat had a cell phone, people actually answered their phones on a much higher percentage than they do in our current 'ultra-connected' society.

Car Pool Lane Cheaters
Posted April 22, 2009

What is it with some people thinking they are above the law?  My commute to work takes me up the Nasty Nimitz into Oakland.  Many times I am on my Harley and therefore allowed to use the Diamond Lane. I'll be going pretty quick - 75 or 80 - and then it happens.  Someone is bearing down on me  because they want to do 100 or so...and I move over.
