Day 93 - Walmart and People Who Smoke
Thursday, May 21, 2020
I started the day with a trip to Walmart. At one point, I needed an item on a particular aisle of which I was on the wrong end. The aisle going the direction I needed on either side were both blocked with pallets of stuff being stocked on the shelves. And I saw someone else head down this same aisle going the wrong way, so I followed suit. Then someone turned on the aisle at the other end (going the correct direction). As she passed by me, she said in an incredibly rude voice, "You're going the wrong way!" I couldn't hold back. I told her that the aisles on either side were blocked and I needed something on this aisle. Honestly, with as many people going the wrong way as there are at any given time in Walmart, it really irked me that she chose to be rude to me. It shouldn't come as any surprise that she had on a mask and gloves and her cart was loaded down with the typical hoarding items of late: toilet paper, paper towels, disinfectant spray, and hand sanitizer. I'm so over the virtue signaling. Can we please get back to normal?
After I got home I went for a walk. It was so nice to finally get out for a walk. It has rained here the last three days, so it was my first walk in a few days. I rather enjoyed it!
I also got another Pilates video done today. Here it is if you're interested: www.youtube.com/
I got some curriculum work done this afternoon. I was asked a couple days ago to help the dance ministry I worked with in Colorado with their curriculum that they are trying to finalize. There is a plan in place to track my time and pay me for my work. So that's one source of income. In addition, I sent out my resume to some local studios and one got back to me. They want to hire me in the fall. They lost a teacher to a move and another to maternity leave. The owner said she can give me as many hours as I want. So some positive developments on the employment front.
This evening, my husband and I went for a walk. We ended up passing several houses in quick succession where people were outside smoking. I have asthma and second-hand cigarette smoke is one of my triggers. I ended up having a minor asthma attack, but I was able to get home and get my inhaler before things got out of hand. I just wish people who smoke would see how much damage they are doing to the people around them.
I hope everyone had a great day!
