Just A Quick Pet Peeve…

Sitting in my favorite coffee shop, and in walks one of those “extra important people”…by that I mean someone who comes in the coffee shop either talking loudly to other coffee house guests, or someone who comes in talking loudly on their cell phones.

He is talking loudly on his cell phone.

He, along with so many others, is the reason that I LOVE ear buds and the peace I get simply from plugging them into my ears.

I was actually wrapping up some work that I was completing, and completely forget to include another item on my agenda. In walks “extra important”. Not only talking loudly, but wearing the loudest cologne EVER CREATED. And where does he sit? At a table directly in front of me, and positioned himself to face me as well. So I’m catching it ALL. I QUICKLY grabbed my earbuds back out of my purse, slid them in my ears, and turned on iTunes. I have completed tuned him out…unfortunately, earbuds don’t work on bogus cologne.

At any rate, one of my biggest pet peeves is someone who speaks EXTREMELY loud, and for what seems like no other reason than to let someone know “he look at me, I’m here”. Sir, please have a nice seat because I can’t with you today.

Now…coffee shops aren’t “libraries”, and I’m fully aware that people will talk w friends/business partners/have phone conversations. But to be “extra important” is really…well…whack. There actually is a coffee shop protocol to follow, and the loud conversations and loud cologne aren’t included.

“Extra Important” has left the building. I can now remove my earbuds (if I choose), and work in peace.

Moral of the Story: just be respectful of your neighbors in general. Some people naturally talk loud…but the same people who naturally talk loud, are fully aware that they do. Can’t tell me otherwise LOL!

Enjoy your Thursday!

7BLOGGERDAYS: JAN12: Your favorite part of a really good movie and what you learned from it

My favorite part of the “TV show” Good Times is when Florida was dead set on fixing Wilona up w a man, thinking that her being in a relationship would “complete her”.

What I learned from that particular episode is that some ppl will judge you based off of what you DON’T have and thinking that if they push you in a direction of their choosing, you will be better off. That’s so far from the truth! But the best part of that episode is the fact that Wilona let Florida know that she was fine/content w who SHE was…only Wilona can decide when she will enter into a relationship, and not on anyone else’s clock! Being true to YOU will bring confidence!

Whether it’s relationships, going back to school, quitting a job, or buying a home…what do YOU say about all of this? It’s your call on YOUR life!

The BEST Part (15)

The Best Part

by: Elle

The best part about an apple is the crisp.
The best part about a plum is the juiciness.
The best part about the salon is the SHAMPOO (lil piece of heaven RIGHT there)…
The best part about a “job” is when you’re through.

The best part about not speaking is what can actually be said through your tears.
The best part about a smile is that it can hide your fears.
The best part about a loving “touch” is how secure it can make you feel.
The best part about being a Black woman is that we are symbols of resilience and zeal.
The best part about a bad day, is that the day HAS to come to an end, and the best part about that? God willing, you get another chance to do it all over again…

The best part about a lie is that it still isn’t as beautiful as the truth.
The best part about your feet is that they still can’t fill my shoes.
The best part about your past is that it’s YOUR choice to stay in it; it’s all up to you who you let KEEP you in it.

The best part about God? Before you spoke, He already knew.
The best part about praise is that it’s not about you.

The best part about a trial is the triumph at the end.
The best part about me?

…is my desire to win…

One Final Thing: The best part about “time” is that we all are given the EXACT same amount each and every day of our lives. The difference between you and I is in what I do w mine.
