I actually have known quite a few people like this! They repeat what they "hear" (especially when it comes to politics) . . . they never get out of their own little cocoon, wh/ involves daily activities and things that are going on right around them. They are lucky to get the clothes washed and the kids out the door w/ their books in the morning. They can tell you what Angelina Jolie is doing but they cannot tell you who the Vice President of the US is. Or they can give you the Monday Night Football line up and they can't tell you who their Senator is.

Y'all know people like this!!! They can tell you what is on sale at Dillards but they can't name the three branches of the government. And if you ask them how schools get funded, they say something like Fund Raisers and school lunches, HEE HEE HEE.
Nobody knows this more than ME. In my current job, I am taking angry phone calls from people who swear that, although they understand that property values across the country have gone down, this (obviously) does not apply to THEM or to THEIR PROPERTY because theirs has this and that amenity..... Most times, I cannot convince them otherwise without being VERY STRONG.... and, that is the least of the things that I have to deal with!

I can't imagine having those conversations over and over again!

I know you can hardly believe some of the things you hear, CHI, but you have the temperament to deal with it. I know, I know . . . that is small consolation, but you are the person who can say . . . I realize why you feel the way you do . . . however . . .

And not everyone can handle those types of verbal exchanges. Someone has to do it . . . and the universe has given you that chore, LOL!!!!

yeah, you are right, I can usually calm down the crazies and get them to understand what I am saying. (I am especially good with the folks from Jersey and other northerners...can't imagine why...)

That doesn't mean that I LIKE it!!

And, the good news is...I HAVE A JOB!

Good morning all! Isn't this lovely warm weather a welcome relief?? I don't care if it is raining...maybe my inflamed bronchial tubes will now go down!!! (I have cold induced asthma, cannot take anti-inflamatories or steroids, so, I have been waiting for a period of warm weather for this to heal!) Yea!

Sorry you aren't feeling well cubs! Hope this warmer weather helps you out.


I just heard a strange sound that kinda freaked me out. There is a trap door in my fireplace for the ashes and it sounded like something was trying to come up through it. The shoot leads to the outside of the house on the side of the chimney and I checked out there to make sure the door was shut and it was. Totally weird.
