Random Coffee Chit-Chat - It's Just the Coffee Talking.... Don't let social media dictate your life; don't let them tell you who to hate, who to love, how to vote or what you should or shouldn't do

This morning when I needed a couple minutes 'brain break' time I visited a few websites/blogs/social media sites.  When the world seems all caught up in politics, religion, fighting, debating and being ugly to each other, it's easy to forget that that is just what social media and the main stream news WANT you to think.  They thrive on hatred.  HATE SELLS.  It's the shock headlines that get you click and fills their bank accounts.  

Don't let social media tell you who to be friends with.  Who to love.  Who to hate.  Don't let social media 'tell' you anything.

Weekend shopping at Costco and Sam's Club is NOT FUN.  Crowds.  Grump, mean people.  Squished aisles.  Picked over goods.  Blah.  Not to mention the issue about the items I needed being 'big' and making me go in and out of the store TWICE in order to shop and fit anything in my cart besides toilet paper, paper towels and coffee.

This little situation led me to do something I normally do NOT do.

I logged onto Costco and ordered my toilet paper, paper towels and 2 boxes of coffee to be delivered.  

I've never, ever done this before and it makes me cringe.

Why?

I feel... wasteful?  Entitled? Lazy?  Seriously, the world we live in today where we just order toilet paper sent to us and they ship with 1-2 day delivery.  Seems like SUCH a waste of time and gas for something so trivial.  

I tell myself that I'm being stupid and this makes sales for them, jobs for the delivery drivers and that this IS the world we live in today.  Where you can order tissue and have it delivered and it's a normal, basic thing now.  But I guess I'm an old soul at heart.  I feel ridiculous doing so.

However... I will also admit that now, tomorrow morning - on a busy, crazy Saturday morning at the membership warehouse, I'm going to be SO DARN HAPPY NOT TO HAVE THOSE HUGE ITEMS IN MY CART nor having to check out - take them to the car and go BACK in the store for a 2nd time just to get all the rest of my 'regular' groceries and items.  I really am.  

So my items are due to be delivered today - large, bulky (but light weight) items that I feel silly as heck to have delivered... but oh it will be nice to have space in my cart and my little bitty car tomorrow morning for my groceries.




... it's just the coffee talking, again.
