  • The Other “Woman”

    We used to have a running joke in our family that Chief’s cell was his “girlfriend.”  Sometimes he’s more connected to that piece of equipment than he is to anything else.  It is his lifeline to everyone, most especially work and he works a lot of hours;  however, his cell phone use/addiction can get out of hand at times.  There was a particularly rough patch at work for Chief a few years back–lots of long, long calls and they seemed to roll in one after another.  I finally became fed up with the constant chatter, ringing and beeping that came even when he wasn’t on call and the sundry “emergencies”…

  • This goes without saying…

    This really should go without saying but people do it anyway: I’m not sure why everyone feels the need to publicly share their “business” with everyone.  The worst offenders are usually chatting and not on a serious call.  Are they that busy?  Do they feel they’re more important?  Do they need to feel important? It would be nice if everyone tried to show others some courtesy–use your polite words; make eye contact; and give your service person your (full) attention.  They are people, too!  Talking on your cell while being served is essentially telling your server/cashier that they are invisible.  We expect courtesy from our children yet many adults don’t…
