My Perfect High School OCD Job

After babysitting for every rug rat in my neighborhood and getting short-changed by a few of their parents (the going rate was 50 cents an hour), I moved into real jobs with time cards and pay stubs. The first one was as a window clerk at Mc Donald’s. I was fast. I could take and… Continue reading My Perfect High School OCD Job

The Weird World We Live In

(re-run) I read the paper each day and watch the news most nights to stay informed. It’s amazing how many people don’t have a clue about what’s going on around them. Like the local nineteen year old woman who bit a female jogger on her arm because the jogger pepper-sprayed her loose dogs. In a… Continue reading The Weird World We Live In

Rainy Sunday Morning Surprise

I am too cheap to pay $3.00 for a newspaper carrier to deliver the San Francisco Sunday Chronicle. Yes, I am a dinosaur. I still read physical newpspapers, eight per week. When I discovered that I was being charged $6.00 for a $3.00 paper, I stopped my subscription and started picking it up myself. That… Continue reading Rainy Sunday Morning Surprise

There’s Bitchy and There’s Old-lady Bitchy

(re-run) I could’ve called it My Bitchy Saturday but opted instead for the other title.  It started off with the grocery store clerk putting my bag of apples at the bottom of the bag, then placing two dozen eggs, a pound of turkey, and a container of cake on top of them. Yes, I bought… Continue reading There’s Bitchy and There’s Old-lady Bitchy

Sheltering in Place at the Beach

I just got back from the grocery store. It’s 9:30 a.m.  I saw maybe a total of fifteen people, and that includes workers. I was the youngest shopper in there, and I’m two months away from Medicare.  Everyone had on masks. I wore my gloves and took them off only to open up the produce… Continue reading Sheltering in Place at the Beach

You Know It is Shelter in Place when . . .

You have four library books on hold at your local branch, but all libraries are closed. The gray stripe at your scalp is showing. You discover toilet paper in the back of your closet and get really excited. You start counting your avocados. You take time to comment on ALL of the Facebook posts you… Continue reading You Know It is Shelter in Place when . . .

Mass Hysteria and the Coronavirus

Today’s aerobics teacher was telling us how Costco looked like Black Friday when she went there on Saturday.  The TV news station reported similar hysteria at a Hayward Target store. Apparently, people were buying toilet paper and paper towels this weekend, for Armageddon. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that, especially if they have… Continue reading Mass Hysteria and the Coronavirus
