I'm on my lunch break right now. I was BUSY this morning, even without the phones. Itineraries, vouchers, filing...that's more like it.
One thing I can do without is people calling and requesting to be transferred to voice mail, then changing their minds and calling me back to hand-deliver the message, "just in case". *rolls eyes* Honey, trust me. The voice mail isn't going to get distracted on the way to deliver the note and forget all about it 2 minutes after it was written down. ADD in electronic applicances isn't very common.
Approval ratings for Congress and the Prez continue to be low.
I didn't realize the approval rating for Congress was THAT low. Not surprised, but damn.
Look at this headline, then read this story.
That is an example of an unnecessary and stupid headline. Future journalists, please take note.
Miami is location of worst road rage.
The article says that St. Louis is listed as one of the friendliest cities. I beg to differ. And Memphis isn't even on the rage list. I'm going to beg a difference of opinion on that one, too. People in St. Louis are arrogant about their driving, and very stupid about left turns. I used to get fists shaken at me all the time because I actually STOPPED at stop signs, rather than doing a rolling pause, which is what most St. Louis residents do.
Memphis drivers seem to THRIVE on honking their horns at each other, flipping each other off, and generally being jerks no matter where they go. They ALSO drive like they're missing the entire front half of their brains. Dur-duh-durrrr.
And why are people in Florida so angry? I think Atlanta should be at the top of that list.
Student financial aid director fired for engaging in activity that was against the interests of...well, everyone but himself.
I wish someone would investigate the FA department at my college. I have NEVER in my life encountered so much stupidity (can you tell I'm at work again? No cursing) in only 2 people. Amazing, really.
As a sort-of random aside, does anyone have any opinion on non-necessary birth induction? I know someone who's not even due until next week, but due to her association with a medical field, she's become afraid to go past her due date (she apparently thinks that if she's even a little late, the baby will die, which is ridiculous, because due dates are a guesstimate, anyway). So she's scheduled an induction for today.
I obviously disagree with it, for reasons of common sense: Women were sort of, you know, made to give birth. Forcing that process, especially on your first child, is liable to cause problems with births later on. If you're late and you have toxemia or something, or the baby is in distress, by all means get it out of there. But if mommy and baby are healthy? Why ruin a good thing?
What do you guys think?
