I hate seeing people walking around with those phone headset things clipped over their ears. Who can be calling you that it's so important that you must keep that thing strapped to your head all the damn time? I'm a pretty polite cell phone user. I don't talk on it if I'm walking around the grocery store or anywhere in public where other people would have to listen. I'll walk off to the side somewhere and not subject everyone else to whatever I'm gossiping about.
BigBrother and I went to the library this afternoon and saw that there was a police officer there escorting unattended kids out. If you were hanging out at the library, waiting for your mom to pick you up after school then you had to wait outside. I don't think that's fair. It's not like the kids were being loud or anything. BB was afraid the officer would tell him to go outside so he wouldn't go look at books by himself and just followed me around instead. I told him he didn't have to worry about that but he didn't like the idea of the police even speaking to him.
Speaking of police...
There have been a few instances around here over the last few weeks where officers have been ran over. Apparently, the officers on motorcycles will stand somewhere and when they clock someone speeding, they will walk into traffic to shoo the offender onto the side of the road to get their ticket. One guy is being charged with murder because not only did he run an officer down - he also fled the scene. That kinda freaks me out because I could see myself doing something like that. Honestly, I'd probably just keep on driving til I got home and could call Sweety and freak out if I plowed someone down. I just don't think it's a good idea to stroll into oncoming traffic even if you are a policeman. Whatever happened to chasing people down with your blue lights flashing and pulling them over to give them a ticket?
I'll never look at a pickle in the same way.
