OK, I know that everyone is suffering from the heat and it's hard to stay cool and calm but some people REALLY need some ANGER Management!
This is what happened to me today.
I get up and it's HOT. I bathe, blow dry my hair and put on some clean fresh work clothes. I gather up my dogs and head out the door. It has begun to rain. It's actually POURING outside. We run to the van, I get everyone inside and I jump in. I am soaking wet. I drive to work and I can feel my hair dripping down my neck. The weatherman on the radio is saying there's a 30% chance of rain.
Finally the rain stops. Now it's steaming HOT out. I take everyone out again and follow them around and "scoop".
At lunch time, I run an errand and by the time I'm finished, my eyes are burning from the sweat.
I get back to work. Some dogs go home and I clean. Some dogs come in and outside we go.
Even with the AIR on it's HOT. I pull out the little hair dryer that I sometimes use on the little dogs and try to blow my own hair. It's a big FRIZZ ball. I put my headband back on.
Finally it's time to go home. I have filled the back of my van with items from my lunch hour run, so I put Blue in the front passenger seat and buckle him in.
I'm driving home, there's construction everywhere. One of my regular routes going home has 2 lanes going one way and 2 the other, the outer lanes on either side are barricaded off for construction. I see a construction worker holding a stop sign toward me but there's no one coming the other way.
The worker violently throws the sign down on the road and SCREAMS. I can read his lips. I don't want to offend anyone but he said "Jesus F#@*ing Christ There's NOT anyone coming!" The worker next to him looked kinda shocked and then started to laugh. I am still smiling at this point, but I raise my eyebrows and crinkle my forehead. I wish I could say that I gave him the PEACE sign...but I didn't. I gave him the other one.
We are all HOT! I mean, it would have been wrong for me to just blow past the STOP sign! How totally rude. This guy needs some major anger management and I pity the people in his life.
I was home ten minutes later and as I was letting my dogs outside, I noticed a few rain drops. Five minutes later I was hurrying them inside because it was pouring rain and the winds had really picked up. It made me smile, hopefully it was cooling that guy off!
