Overheard Today

"Miss, do you help people because it makes you feel good about yourself?"

"No. It makes me feel frustrated, inadequate and as if I should be driving a truck for a living."

"Miss, sarcasm isn't nice you know."

"I wasn't being sarcastic."

Simply LOL funny. You caused me to hoot and snort with laughter. I am sorry to laugh in the face of desperation...I think you might have to be a teacher to fully feel the beauty of this one. Priceless. Let me know how the pays is...for the truck driving. ;)

By the way, I completely get the BIGGEST kick that they call you "miss." I am not sure why...but I love that. No matter how foolish of a thing they are saying, it still has the air of respect, I guess.
