Wednesday Worthy

Yesterday was one of those hit the ground running days. I walked Maggie, went grocerying shopping and then Wizard and I were on the road to see Baby Slayer by about 9:40 am. Baby Slayer is cute as ever!

But while Maggie and I were out walking, I saw a great example of why our kids seem to lack any self-control. We have an elementary school one street over from us. Typically that’s no problem, we know school times and adjust around it. Yesterday, I had to walk Maggie at school drop off time. So Maggie and I were walking on the sidewalk up a busy road with a long, slow snake of cars waiting to go around a corner, then drop off their kids at school. All of a sudden I hear shouting. Up ahead, a woman had gotten out of her car, and was screaming at a man in a truck behind her. The man, in turn, was calling her names (Spoiler Alert–he did NOT call her “a bucking witch…”). Finally she got back in her car, would move a couple feet and stop, blocking the man behind her and everyone else for a few minutes before moving again.

Both of these parents had kids in their vehicles with them, and there were dozens of elementary school-aged kids on the sidewalks close by.

Classy, people, real classy. Honestly, it was just sad and ridiculous.

Let’s move onto something more fun, here’s our Wednesday Worthy candidate for today:

What do you think, is he worthy?

    Ugh. People. :shudder: And this is why I do my best to avoid them whenever possible.

    Yeah, I think this one’s worthy.

    B.E, people can be awful, but I meet so many nice people on my walks too.

    This guy’s pose made me think of someone fun and playful with admirable abs :-)

    He’s definitely worthy! And those parents? I wish someone had video’d them and posted to social media. They should be ashamed of themselves! Gah!!!

    Time with Baby Slayer and GOOD parents will help erase that sight. :)

    Silver, we’re on a worthy roll today!

    My day yesterday was great! Baby Slayer is growing so fast. Parents behaving badly is nothing new, I saw it all the time in my carpool days. But truthfully, there are a lot of parents doing the right thing to the best of their ability day in and day out.

    Happy Hump Day!

    I like this guy.

    Glad you had fun (like you wouldn’t ;)) with Baby Slayer.

    Nasty people really annoy me. I constantly have to go back to something Brit Hume posted on FB – “You never know what someone is going through so be kind. Be Kind.” Good advice we should all try and follow.

    I hope you’re having a great day!

    Viki, that’s been my motto (be kind) as a made repeated phone calls trying to fix problems created by people who didn’t do their jobs creating major headaches for me :-) I didn’t snap or snarl, I just patiently asked, “How can we solve this?” that counts as kind, right? I try and remind myself that these are small problems in the scale of life.

    Glad the guy worked for all who commented today.

    Hope you have a great evening!!
