Nothing is free – I tried to get a coupon off of the internet for a product I needed to buy. I knew there was one available as it was in last Sunday’s newspaper ad. Unfortunately I had put the newspaper in recycling earlier in the week. There were many sites that offered it but none that allowed me to use it without “joining for free.” One even wanted my phone number. Nope. Paid full price for the damn thing.
Speaking of the grocery store – The woman in front of me at the check-out had a mustache. A noticeable one. She was young and blonde but the mustache was brown. I couldn’t help staring. Fortunately she was focused on her cell phone and didn’t know I was there.
Yet another – Then I stopped at a different Starbucks. There was an androgynous person behind the counter. Yep, there I was staring trying to figure out the sex. Not that I care either way. I was curious.
What do the other people do – I got a Medicare reject notice this week. I had to read it three times to figure out the who, what and where. It made no sense at all. Thinking of older people who get many notices after an accident or serious illness, I wonder who looks out for them. Knowing all the facts of this medical procedure, this denial is wrong. Another battle to fight. When I worked we had a liaison who worked with employees to resolve such conflicts.
A touch of spring – We have just started getting warmer, nice weather. The catch has been that it’s either warmer (upper 60s to low 70sF) or it’s sunny. Not both at the same time. It’s been a discouraging spring or maybe I’m impatient. The flower tent went up this week in the parking lot next to Starbucks so that’s a good sign. Maybe just a few warm AND sunny days are in order.
So how was your week?
