Short-Cut

This has now happened two times. So, I must rant. At our office, we have a front and a back door. Our back door opens to a parking lot and across the parking lot are other office buildings. Yesterday for the second time, two incredibly uncouth people walked in our front door and out our back door. At the time we were in a meeting and someone got up, interrupting the meeting, to assist the “patron” that entered our front door. As a co-worker approached the front door, she was quickly dismissed by the “patrons” and told, “We are just taking a short-cut. We are late for an appointment.” And they made their way out the back door. You have to be kidding me. I estimate they saved about 20 yards and 60 seconds of labor intensive walking. They took a short cut through our OFFICE. Our office is not a hallway for passage through our business plaza. I am appalled and never cease to be amazed by people. I am far from perfect, but I do not consider my self to me that lazy. Of course, of they tripped or fell on their short-cut, we would see them in court to defend our tails. There are probably the same people who will drive around a parking lot for 20 minutes to get a parking spot 20 feet closer than the next available spot. Why are so many people so inherently LAZY?

Grimes...

I had no idea you had a blog... good to see.

You'll have to check mine out http://www.rsherrard.blogspot.com

I am surprised being the entrepreneur that you are, why are you not using ad placements on your blog. I have already earned a whopping 6 bucks on my blog.
