a guy and a bee

a collection of random thoughts and ideas from me, her, and sometimes us

no complaints

it’s funny how some days we complain about little things. last week I had a cold and it seems to be lingering a little. that’s neither here nor there as my point was as I was sitting in the Jerry’s Subs and Pizza in Owen Brown, a lady walked by me and I said “hi, how’s it going?” she said “hi, good” back, walked 2 steps turned around and asked if I really cared because she would sit down and tell me. since I tend to believe half the people I see are criminals, I politely declined and told her “maybe tomorrow.” haha. she hadn’t even met me for more than a split second and was all ready to lay her world of problems on me. a minor interaction that was more of a courtesy and a way being polite.

what did she really have to complain about? who knows and I wasn’t interested in finding out. it didn’t actually make a difference to me as we all have our problems but do we really to talk to complete strangers about them? I guess I won’t be asking random people “how it’s going” again. I know I don’t really have anything to complain about. I could complain that work has been slow but then again I am not unemployed so maybe it’s not bad after all. so since we aren’t complaining, I hope you are doing well. bee got a cold after I did so we are working on getting better and being happy with what we have. so why did I write a post about this or is it I am complaining about having no complaints? guess i’ll let someone else decide because i’m not really sure.

    I complain to you and Bee all the time? Are you secretly writing this blog to tell me to knock it off?

    Say “Hello” or “Howdy,” something that isn’t a question. That’s too weird that she actually wanted to sit down and spill her guts.

    Me, I wear headphones when I eat out on my own. People often don’t disturb you.

    Very strange. I often wear headphones when I eat out on my own (great way to catch up on podcasts). People are less likely to approach.
