Club Life – People Watching March 19, 2013

I am very much a people watcher, not in that creepy stalking way, but just observing. I can usually peg basic body language, facial expressions, etc to know (well assume) what’s going on between people. Of course if they are alone the assumptions can be much more fun, and outrageous. I was sitting at lunch the other day and there were a group of men ranging in age from around 20-70. Granted it was in a private club setting, and I know their common interest is golf. So the men sat around a large round table in the lounge area of the club, some would join the group and others would leave, it was a come and go thing it seemed. During the 45 minutes I sat there these men talked about other people, 16 to be exact, and one person in particular on several occasions. They would speculate about these peoples interest in tournaments, what is going on in their job, what their “position” is in the Club, their personal relationships, among other things. One man in particular was the most vocal about his opinions of others, and when he spoke it was loud and clear enough for everyone to hear. Not smart in my opinion, but of course they didn’t ask. It was very interesting to me that they were just gossiping, literally, but yet any one of these men would be the first to say they don’t gossip. They would swear only women-folk gossip.

As I sat there I got a bit tickled at that thought. Of course anyone watching me would have thought I was crazy or having some great and funny conversation with the voices in my head. Anyways, I determined in my assumption of these men that the loudest one was the most full of shit. The two younger men were chiming in so that the loud one noticed them, and the older ones seemed to join in quietly while laughing. Maybe they agreed with my assumption the the loud one was full of shit. As more people entered for lunch the group got quieter, which is to say not so obnoxious, and no one seemed to notice them plainly talking about other people. It occurs to me that this group would gossip about any of the other members of the table if they weren’t there. Maybe that’s why they are all there every day to drink water and eat popcorn. Hopefully the weather will get nicer so they can get back to a more relevant hobby, like golf.

I AM SO GLAD IT’S FRIDAY!

Sorry for the shouting, but it has been a heck of a week. Monday and Tuesday were spent with my ex screaming at me…for no reason other than I wouldn’t come to his house. Um…we are divorced, thanks for offering but, no thanks. It feels good to be able to stand up for myself again, and I fought him the whole time when I used to just walk away. You don’t get to call an hour before I get off work and tell me to drive 20 minutes to your house. I have our daughter this week and I will be spending time with her. Of course the tantrums (his) commence and I really don’t deal well with that. Just another example that I made the right decision. Go me!

Work has been crazy, it’s like special situation week on campus or something.

Student: Yes, I’d like to withdraw from this semester.

Me: Oh, I see, so you don’t plan to attend during the Spring semester?

Student: No, I’m talking about the semester we are in.

Me: Um…the last day to withdraw was the beginning of November, exams start on Saturday.

Student: I know, but I have medical issues.

Me: Oh I see.

So I proceed to follow our procedure while the student has jumped all over my you have no responsibility nerve. Sigh.

WOOHOO it’s Friday! While it’s going to be a busy working all weekend few days, I’m looking forward to them.

I’ve had a wonderful time with my sweet pea this week! We’ve put up the Christmas tree, done homework, snuggled, did a few things around town, and stuff like that. I even got to paint her finger nails to look like candy canes. Cute huh?

She’s growing up so fast, but I have to say overall she has great manners, she’s caring, compassionate, and polite. I’m so proud of her!

A friend of mine told me a story last night, because that’s just what he does (I wish he’d start a blog, you’d love it), he is an amazing story teller. Anyways, here’s how the story basically went. A woman asked her husband to get her a new car, hers was falling apart and unreliable. He said, no we don’t really have the money for that right now. She said okay. She asked him to take a trip to the lake so they could spend the day together. He said no,it’s too far, we’ll do it someday.

The man passed away, and she was very sad. She had him cremated according to his wishes and picked up his ashes. She drove down to the lake with them, got out of the car and said the following. “You know honey, I asked you over and over for a new car to which you always told me there wasn’t enough money. Well we drove here in my new car. I asked you to come to the lake so we could spend time together, you always said it was too far. Isn’t it beautiful here? You know the blow jobs you always asked me for and I always said no? Well I guess it’s a little late now, but here you go.”
