I started this morning by shuffling out of the bedroom, and getting a cup of coffee to brew first thing.  I grabbed it and sat down to sip.  It was full of murky muddy water and grounds.  The k-cup had exploded.  First one in loooong time.  But... what a way to start the morning, right?   
Cleaned up the mess, brewed water through to clean it more and then finally, brewed a fresh cup of hot, strong, black coffee.  But now my already minimal time to blog before getting dressed and starting my day is down to about 3 minutes.

Saw this online and chuckled because... it's happened to me.  More than a few times.  It seems anyone under 30 has no concept of how to count, or basic math.  How can they?  They were so busy learning all the mandatory useless crap in school that schools don't teach basic math skills, history, economics or reading anymore.   So you can chuckle too... but it's TRUE.

I've had similar scenario's OFTEN.  Not at McDonalds, because I rarely eat out but at retail stores and grocery stores.  Try it.  Try giving change to up your total amount so you get an even dollar amount or coin amount back.  You'll confuse the heck out of them.

(Hint:  Usually when they stutter and look confused I tell them to just put the total into the machine and they'll see.  When I get an 'even' amount back that equals a full coin like a quarter or a dollar instead of pennies, they sometimes get it.   Sometimes.)
 
  

 
 
Similar...  when I ask a question back or question what someone in 'authority' has just told me, they usually have NO IDEA of what they just said or why it's wrong.

Our whore-in-office who was put in charge of our border almost 3 months FINALLY visits the border for the first time.  ONLY AFTER DONALD TRUMP ANNOUNCED HE WOULD BE VISITING IT NEXT WEEK.   This administration is a piece of shit.

 

 


I see people my age out there climbing mountains and zip lining... and here I am feeling good about myself because I got my leg through my underwear without losing my balance. 
 


I started jogging today.  I didn't want to, but the margarita truck didn't stop.
