So, I am here to do around 4 hours of math with my daughter for her home school studies because she goes to an actual online school it can be quite demanding like going to a physical school. They are having a super fun day where there are props to take pics with and post to social media for employee appreciation. Walking in the door after my morning job to this cheery atmosphere made me smile and feel that today would be a good day.
The coffee is smelling good. It is not freezing cold in here today. The atmosphere is quiet, but there is this one ANNOYING random guy speaking as loudly and quickly as possible in his native tongue. Native tongue is fine. But I don’t care what you language is, I don’t want to hear what you have to say on your cell phone. Starbucks is not an office. I mean, it is okay to treat it like an office, but if you are “hosting conference calls”, host them from your Hyundai or whatever it is you are driving. Please!
I know, I know. First World Problems. Or, what my brother often says: White People Problems. Not because he is racist, but because ummm, we are white.:) Anyway, there are wars and famine and hunger issues and I am complaining about this. Ridiculous, I know, I know. But if I can’t talk about it on my blog then where can I except to perhaps God? Even God would probably say: “Ain’t nobody got time for that”. So thanks for listening (reading).
It probably seems like I am in a bad mood because I was tired last night and I am tired today, but I find it obnoxious to hear every detail of someone’s conversation on the phone or if they are at a table nearby speaking to a friend. I talk loud because I am originally from the south. My daughter even thinks I am yelling at her sometimes when I am not. But, I know how to tone it down when at the movies, or at a restaurant or other public place. Is it a trend, or do I feel that people are always yelling to the top of their lungs when having a conversation?
Am I the only person that is annoyed with this uncouth behavior? Am I TOO old skool? Am I easily aggravated? Am I too high-strung? Well, I can tell you a few things: I am super fun, super exact, super silly, super serious, majorly organized, majorly loyal, rule follower, and rule breaker all in one. Within all of these qualities, there is something about me that can’t stand nonsensical, obnoxious or rude behavior. But we can win ’em all now can we?
P.S. The guy has gone from his super loud over the top convo to listening to a cartoon on his laptop.Go figure…
