Illegitimis Non Carborundum

I don't ask for much......

really I don't.

I just ask for a few little things in life.

I ask for Target to have my shampoo and hair color in stock. Why they need 40 boxes of Ms. Clairol #255 Deep Deep Dark BLACK and only 2 of the blond that evidently every woman in Philadelphia uses, is beyond me. Would it kill them to over order that color just one month so I don't have to go to 3 other stores to find it?????

I just ask that they have grape juice. Not Blueberry Pomegranate Cran Grape. Just Grape. It's Tuesday and there is no Grape on the shelf. Who the heck does the ordering for these stores????

I do ask that if you are going to make a left turn onto another street, signal a little bit before the turn and then scooch over to the left a little so those of us going straight can pass you. I know it's hard to hold the phone AND put the signal on. I mean God only gave us 2 hands and one of them must be on the cell phone at all times! But just give it a shot, just one time and see how smooth your turn goes.

I ask that teachers just get the kids out of the school so they can go home. I know it's very important for them to be silent while in a line but for the love of everything holy, let them talk and get rid of them faster. Stopping every few steps to tell them to be quiet isn't working. Aren't you dying to get rid of them?? You've been with them for 6 hours now. Send them home to their parents, who by the way, are sitting in the car with 50 other things to do and places to go.

I ask that if you are going to send me a notice that my book is in at the library, that you send the notice BEFORE the library closes. See sending it at 11PM doesn't do me a lick of good. I can't get it then and have to wait for the next day. That's annoying because I've been waiting patiently. By 3:30 the next day, I am busy and have completely forgotten that you sent me an email about 12 hours ago to come and get it.

And those were just today!


  1. Welcome back to blogland Lori. I've missed your posts here. I wonder if you can order your color online? Glad you finally found it but too bad about having to go to so many stores. Wonder why they ordered so much of the black color?

  2. black is the new blonde, didn't you get the memo? =)

    I like the blinker one - it also helps the poor fools who are waiting to make a right FROM the intersection you're turning into ... nothing annoys me more than waiting ... and waiting ... and waiting for you to pass me so I can turn, then you DON'T pass me ??? ugh throws off the driving mojo

  3. Down here they are always out of Pecan (I think it's number 118) and our Bi-Lo NEVER has the sale items that I go in there to me crazy but my thoughts are if you know it's going to be on sale, order enough to stock and restock the shelves as necessary. Maybe we have the same people working on this as you do! LOL Crazy drivers here too...mostly they have nowhere to go and all day to get there!


So, whatcha thinkin?
