Pet Peeve

I hate it when you open a new browser window, then forget what you opened it for, shut it down and then immediatly remember, and have to open another window....

Definition:Tight wad

So I’m in Starbucks waiting in line to get my cup of Joe. I look down and see a $20 sitting on the ground a few people in front of me. I, being the nice person that I am, tap the lady on the shoulder nearest to the $20 thinking it was hers. She says "thanks" and picks it up and puts it in her coat pocket.
Meanwhile, the guy ahead of this lady watches this all go down and realizes it’s his $20. The guy in looks in his now empty hand and says: "Oh, that was mine, I dropped it."
She reached into her pocket and gave it back to the guy...

It wasn't even hers to begin with!!!

Can you the balls of that lady?
I saw it, the lady picked it up and put it in her pocket and it wasn't even hers?!?!

If anyone should have gotten it, it was me!!!

I know times are tough people, but if you're buying coffee at Starbucks, then you don't need an extra $20....

I went and got my coffee at Starbucks today and low and behold they are using their holiday cups already. Really? Its the first week of november and the high for today is supposed to be in the 70's. I thought it was bad to see Christmas stuff in Target the other day, but this is going TOO far...

Milk in a Bag

Why do baggers at grocery stores ask if you want your milk in a bag?
Does anyone not get their milk in a bag? 
Do people really enjoy carrying the milk by the cold wet handle? 
Among other things, carrying milk in a bag allows a person to carry so much more at once. I can't think of a single benefit of not putting your milk in a bag. 
Anyone care to enlighten me?

Fall Rocks

Today is a beautiful day here in Chicago. 
It was a crisp 45 this morning when I got up. 
Today's High: 57
Time to get out the fall clothing!

Kindest Regards....

My Friend Adam posted some things about email signatures a while ago so I thought I'd weigh in on this highly debated topic.

Why do people put closings to emails in their signatures? I think its lazy and a bad practice. Is it really hard to type "Thanks, " at the end of each email? Here are a few instances where this strategy fails:

1. You are emailing someone trying to be forceful. 
Due to your incompetence, I've had to work all weekend to get the system backup. If you ever do this again, you'll be cleaning the gum off the sidewalk out front!
Kindest Regards,

Are you really getting your point across when you do this??

2. You are replying to an email and your email program marks your text in a different font than your signature. 

"I concur
Thanks, Nick"

That looks ridiculous.

3. You are sending a response to a co-worker were a closing makes no sense. 
Regards, Nick

Does 7 really need a "Regards"? I think not.

Come on people. Lets stop being lazy!
