Yesterday our lounging area at the office was abuzzed with moms who has converged in one spot and passionately grumbling and complaining about our current situation in Charlotte, NC and neighboring towns. Typical moms yakking at each other back and forth, decibel rising higher and higher! I wanted to scream shut up!!! My ears were starting to hurt! yeah, put two women in a room and it will be noisy. Now put 10 disgruntled women in the equation = VERY NOISY!!! so, what is the deal with them you ask? Well, nothing serious really - the entire area is just OUT OF GAS!!! can you believe this!? what the heck is going on?!
So, while my ears were almost at the verge of bleeding...one of the moms jokingly said- smile, grin and all, "this is like Armageddon!" - I almost fell out of my seat! "a whaattt???!" I could have slapped her crazy right there and then. Does she even know what she's saying?! She shouldn't even joke about it! Armageddon will be the last thing she'll ever want right now! She's either trying to be funny, plain ignorant or plain stupid! Then she started bragging about the new lot that they bought yadda yadda yadda - show-off! All the other moms went silent at this point...Thank heavens! but it didn't last long...women!!!
As for that "Mrs. Show-off's" Armageddon stunt, I was reminded of the movie by the same title where Bruce Willis and Liv Tyler starred in. I liked the movie and the visual rendition of it. It's a very scary sight but then it also offers hope at the end with a little sacrifice in the process. ( You think that mom will be a good sacrifice? Maybe then, she'll KNOW exactly what she's talking about!)
Oh btw, if this gas problem isn't resolved soon - I'm either walking to work or staying at home doing house chores (all day)! - Not sure which is worst. Some of our members here has already informed us that they can't go to work or here because they don't have gas. One of them checked 20 gas stations and they're all dry!!! - ah can we use A-1 sauce instead??? huh funny!!! Ok I'm talking to myself now...
Dang! can I just blame all them politicians??? eh, where's our tax money now ha!? Gas people, beat it! we need gas not your stinky gas! Anyone else experiencing the same shortage?
