   Straitpath posted on Pet Peeves  Needed to change my address with Social Security. What a joke. Couldn't find directions on Internet site. Waited on phone one half hour and hung up. Called local office and I think I got it done, though she didn't act like she knew what she was doing. Why such poor service???

   Balogreene  Early 90's in NYC my wallet was stolen (of course, Rudi wasn't mayor yet ). I went literally across the street to the Social Security office to get a new card. I was behind many people who didn't speak English, and didn't have ID. They were being told you didn't need ID at the welfare office, go sign up for welfare, get an ID card and come back to collect SS.

   Balogreene  The phones drive me crazy, the doorbells drive my dog nuts, and we don't have a doorbell, she's never heard one in real life.

   Straitpath posted on Blessings  Have any of us not had the experience of losing something, praying to find it, and then miraculously finding it? I think this happens so often because God wants us to know He answers prayers. My grandson lost an irreplaceable set of keys on a mountain path. He searched until dark and then he and his Dad resumed the search the next morning after praying. The keys were immediately found in a miraculous way. So thankful.

   Iacta alea est  In situations like this, my ex-wife would repeat this prayer:
"St. Joseph, St. Joseph,
Please come around,
Something is lost,
That cannot be found."

Saw it work a few times too.

   Straitpath posted on Pet Peeves  I would make a plea to men. I haven't noticed this in women, so I will assume it pertains to mostly men. If your wife dies or if you get divorced, please do not remarry quickly and then show public affection to the new spouse in front of anyone who loved the former spouse. Save it for in private. Please do not declare that you have never before been so happy while still on your honeymoon. Be kind and be sensitive.

   MeiDei  Boy does this one hit home. A good friend related a similar experience (at their Housewarming - new neighbors, business associates ) by the uninvited arrival of her best friend's then husband with his intended "Next Mrs....." expecting all to be happy for him. Awkward & embarrassing for them & their invited guests. The at home wife (1000 miles away ) with a newborn knew nothing about any pending divorce.

   Surfhut  The young women in my office who are nearly 30 dress like they are 19 and out clubbing. Totally inappropriate office dressing. They said we Baby Boomers were self-obsessed. We pale in comparison with the current 30'ish generation.

   Gerty  We've got to face it---social media and TV reality shows have made all of this acceptable.
Some of the strangest (and unhealthy ) things are viewed as 'normal' today. Go figure.

   Safetydude  Ok, so at least we have something to look at which is not all bad.

What bugs me are the obese people riding the electric powered handicapped shopping carts. Their only handicap is their weight but they think they deserve the same courtesy as a person with a missing limb.

   Balogreene  This past New Years Eve we went out for an early dinner, hoping to beat the crowd. There were a lot of people there, pre-parties. It was amazing the number of women who forgot to put their dresses on, and showed up in just their little black slips!

   MeiDei  A good rule of thumb is to dress for the job you want, not for the one you have - makes advancement that much quicker.

   FlatCityGirl  We had a receptionist who dressed like a hooker --and complained constantly about being cold, summer and winter.

I was never known in a work environment to be mouthy, and I listened to this particular "girl" complain loudly and long about being cold for nearly a year. Freezing to death, while dressed in a slip dress, no bra and thong panties. [I always thought the reason she got away with it was that twelve men --the powers that be, liked it.]

One day She was whining about how cold the office was, and all hell flew into me. I turned around and said, "Kelly, if you dressed like you worked in a place of business instead of a street corner, you wouldn't be so cold all the time."

Five or six of the powers that be overheard my comment. Within the next day or two, she got called into the big bosses office, and after that, she started dressing differently --like she worked in a place of business.

I think the five or six guys that heard my comment finally realized that this half nude bleached blond was the first thing that people saw when they came through the front door and it was a real bad image she projected.

   Straitpath posted on Faith  God is so aware of each of us. I had a miracle happen to me today. It was no coincidence. It involved His putting into my hand something very dear to me which I had believed lost or even stolen. I am humbled and grateful.

   Straitpath posted on Coffee Klatch  I am thinking that from what I gather, I live farther West than others on the site. I live in Utah. Do any of you live in California? I know Surfhut used to and that cat person lived in Washington. Just curious. By the way, I like the relaxed atmosphere we have on the site now. Do wish more would join in though.

   Bettijo  I, too, wish we had more contributors. I don't think there are over 12 of us; maybe 15. There are probably "lurchers" who do not post; if so, I wish they would. I miss the folks we have lost.

Incidentally, I live in Georgia.
