Every Monday, we like to unleash our frustrations to brush off last week’s frustrations and start the week fresh. It’s time to declare “Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That!”
Julie had so many bizarre run-ins last week that she can’t really talk about, but she does have one gripe that must be vented. What is with restaurants putting tomatoes on everything even when asked to keep them off?! 3 out of 4 people in Julie’s family don’t even like tomatoes, and yet there they were despite instructions to leave the offending fruit out of the mix. Even if you pluck them off, there’s still evidence of tomato left behind. Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That!
John is tired of soccer coaches that decide to hold impromptu skills classes and forget to tell everyone. This weekend his kids’ soccer coach called at 9:45 to tell him about a skills class that was at 10. The resulting scramble to find equipment and uniforms was frustrating to say the least. Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That!
Tony has a bone to pick with Joe Namath. When a 5-year-old girl can connect her emotions and love of animals well enough to cry when a puppy is reunited with his horse friend in the Budweiser commercial, she’s wired well enough to ask, “What is that man wearing? Is that an animal coat?” Then she asks, “What about the animals? Do they die? Do they have parents that love them?” Maybe you should rethink the apparel choices. Time to fire the PR people, Joe, and maybe you should trash the fur coat as well. Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That!
