In the Sunday Edition of the Seattle Times, they have a feature called Rants and Raves.
I love it.
I have been reading this column off and on for the past 14 years.
Whenever I am in Seattle or when I check out the paper on line, this is the first section I go to.
Seattle residents might talk about the woman they saw, who didn’t put her child in a car seat or the young pre teen boy who held the door open for an elderly woman.
I have my own Rant and Rave for today.
Rave goes to the sweet woman in the craft store who gave me her extra coupon. Thanks again. I was standing in line at the store when I had a “V-8” moment remembering that I didn’t check the Sunday paper for the ad. This kind woman saved me 40% off my entire order.
Rant to the woman in the Costco parking lot.
No, I didn’t want your parking place.
It was not necessary to cuss me out from your car and the additional hand motions were not necessary either.
I am guessing you are either Type – A personality or Italian….or both. (I’m Italian, don’t send letters.)
As you later realized, I was waiting for the dear, white haired couple to move out of the way before I passed….I have a rule about not hitting pedestrians.
Especially since the elderly gentleman was wearing a baseball cap with a WW II veteran insignia.
We don’t have many of them left.
Gosh, what would you have done if I had gotten out of my car to thank him and shake his now, feeble hand on this Memorial Day weekend?
I drove by your precious parking place.
I wouldn’t have dreamed of taking your spot; besides, I got one.
Two spaces from the door.
