So, I've been thinking about blogging and then I remembered that I already had a blog. I was blogging on another website and....decided that since I lost my job,  I didn't need the expense, so I closed it...and then remembered that I started THIS blog more than a year ago..... and..... coincidentally, it was more than a year ago since I've written anything.

SO- here I am. Broken hearted- no wait- that belongs to another rhyme. ;-)
I'm not broken hearted, actually, I am quite the opposite. Thanks for asking.

I do have something that has been on my mind. I started writing about it more than a year ago.
I do try to be kind- but sometimes it's seems a difficult thing to do - especially when there are people out there that seem to be bent on being unkind.

Today I was at Safeway on 7th Avenue and Osborn. I was looking at the meat that was on special. I actually had a package of meat in my hands. This elderly lady took it out of my hands to look at it herself. I was shocked and really annoyed as the exact same thing happened to me a few weeks ago at another store. I know we're suppose to respect our elders, at least that's how I was brought up  and it's something I raised my kids to believe as well, but I have to say that she was rude & nasty & I didn't want to take her pushing me around. She actually pushed me out of the way so she could get a greater gander at the meat. I, being rather annoyed, asked her if I could help her. She, with a really bitchy tone, stated she wants to  look at the meat. I, without thinking she was elderly but rather just rude, said to her that since she was 'knocking on death's door, let  me get out of your way.' I must admit, I felt badly for saying that for a brief moment but then my conscience was cleared when she
took  steps to invade my personal space and push me out of the way. Rude old lady!

Some elderly people think that because they are older that they have the right to be mean & nasty.
It's just something I suppose I'll have to live with.


  1. Agreed!! Being elderly is not an excuse to push people around, let alone take something out of your hands. Had a man done that to her, she would've cried assault!

    1. I hope whatever happened to her that made her feel
      as if the world needs to move out of her way doesn't come back and bite her...what a rude old lady....

  2. I was going to make a smart-ass remark about you holding a package of meat in your hand... but decided not to. Just because you're older does not give one the right to be rude. So to put an elder in her place is ok with the world. Being good or kind does not mean you let people be rude to you. Be true to yourself.... package of meat... LOL!
