Really? .... Really!

Sooo... I was in Starbucks this afternoon, testing out @jonathanscard an awesome pay it forward type crowd source that just might get you a free coffee (read more here) when a serious error in decorum occurred...

I was meeting my dear friend for a very quick catch up because I only had 10 minutes. This friend is 6 months pregnant... It was raining cats, dogs, and monkeys outside and Starbucks was packed with people trying to get out of the elements. Enter "Egregious Lack of Decorum Woman"... A woman was sitting on a bench in the 'bucks typing on her laptop, a fairly common occurrence in ANY coffee shop, however she was using the only "free" chair to keep her computer plug on. So I very nicely ask the woman if my pregnant friend might be able to use the chair. This is how the conversation went...

Me: "Hi, sorry to bother you, but may I use this chair? My friend is pregnant and there are no other chairs available"

ELDW: "Well she's not here yet so..."

Me: "Actually shes just in line to get a cup of tea"

ELDW: grumble grumble (doesn't move to remove her cord from the chair)

Me: Blink, blink

Woman overhearing this: Offering me the chair she is sitting on "Please take mine!"

ELDW: ...

Me: thinking to myself "I hope your imaginary friend is choked by your compuder cord... Really?Really!"

Seriously people? Are electronics more important than people bringing other people into the world? I could not believe the audacity of that woman... Luckily others in the 'bucks were kind enough to share their seats with my friend and all was well but there has to be something seriously wrong with this picture... Grrr...

Date My Boss!

My Boss is doing an amazing thing in honor of the 1st anniversary of her 39th year! In order to ramp up her social life she has committed to going on 40 dates by Dec 31. These dont have to be 40 different guys, just 40 dates repeats allowed and welcomed. She is relying on her social media contacts to help set her up as an innovative self marketing campaign. I think it is genius! Ive urged her to blog about it but to no avail... still working on that.
