I go to the gym at least 4 times a week, and every evening that I’m there I see the same chick doing the same stupid mess. She goes into the locker room and puts on a FULL face of makeup–I’m talking pancake foundation and all. She then proceeds to spend about 45 minutes on the elliptical machine, heads to do some weight training, then onto the treadmill or bike. She sweats like a man, so by the time she’s done, her face looks like a Picasso painting with all the color smeared everywhere. She also douses herself in Bur.ber.ry Brit perfume before she begins her workout, and her “scent” wafts all over the gym. A few times she put entirely too much on and I had to end my workout early because the smell gave me a headache.
Call me spoiled or whatever, but I get my nails done every two weeks and get a pedicure once a month. All year, not just in the summer time. The last 3 times that I’ve been in for a pedicure, this woman has been there with her son who appears to be about 4 or 5 years old–definitely old enough to understand “NO” and “STOP”. All 3 times, while the woman was getting her pedicure, her darling son turned on the water in the empty pedicure chairs and started splashing around like he was at home. The nail techs tried to be nice and asked him to stop, but he kept splashing and dumping their products into the water. The mother just said, “Adam, stop it. That’s not nice. Those aren’t your things.” All this, rather than just packing a book and some toys for him or better yet, leaving his azz at home with dad or a babysitter. My mother would have gotten up from the pedicure chair, feet half done and proceeded to whoop my behind in front of everyone if I had tried some crap like that.
I drive to work everyday now. I used to have the option of taking Metro a few days a week, but where we live dictates otherwise. Almost every morning, I encounter atrocious driving from the other people on the road. Now, I’m not going to act like I’m the best driver in the world, cuz hey I make mistakes too, but I’m in a league of my own compared to a few people out there. A lady who lives in the same complex that I do takes the same road to work, so I usually see her at some point during my commute. Every time I see her, she makes the WORST errors. She just changes lanes all willy nilly without looking to see what’s in the lane next to her, she will slam on her brakes on the highway if she senses that she’s going too much over the speed limit, she’ll cross over 4 lanes of traffic at 85 mph just to get to her exit all while having a copy of her novel laid on her steering wheel/lap. I asked her about hre antics once and she said that she really doesn’t pay much attention to the other drivers, just what she’s doing. Ummm. No. Not a good idea.
