Random Musing Friday…

Good morning and happy Friday!  Another week gone and it’s already February.  Although, here in NY it feels more  like May.  It was actually 60 degrees here on Wednesday.  In February!  That never happens.  I really like the winter and I wouldn’t mind a snowstorm or two…but I’m also really loving 60 degrees in February. 

Here’s what else happened this week…

 

  • We became a 2 car household again!  We’ve only had one car for about three years now and recently it’s become more and more of a pain.  Especially since that one car was an SUV that gets terrible gas mileage.  So we added a second car to our lives…a Volkswagen Jetta. 

    Isn’t she pretty?  I have yet to name her, but so far I’m leaning toward Stella.  However, I’m open to any and all suggestions.
  • As I’ve said before, the car buying process is one that I loathe .  I can’t stand the bullshit they try to sell you and the haggling process in such a pain.  But what I really couldn’t stand this time was the one salesman who repeatedly called me “Honey” and “Sweetie”.  The only thing that annoys me more is being called “Baby”.  I didn’t even try to negotiate with him…he was far too irritating.  I just took my business elsewhere.  It really amazes me that people still think they can get away with stuff like that.
  • I work with someone whose first response to any request is always no.  Doesn’t matter what you ask for…the answer is going to be no.  Often, after a further discussion, she will relent and agree to your request or she’ll find some kind of compromise, but by then the damage is done, everyone is upset and she’s created ill will.  I can’t, for the life of me, figure out why she insists on doing business this way.  I just keep hoping she’ll figure it out and change her ways…but I think she’s probably a lost cause. 
  • And the quote of the week once again goes to J.  We were watching TV the other night and J said something that led me to believe that he was interested in having sex…which, for many reasons, was the very last thing on my mind at that moment.  So I asked him if he did, in fact, want to have sex.  His response…”No…you just said how tired you are…you’d just be phoning it in.”  Which was totally true.  And that, my friends, is what happens when you’ve been together for 11 years.

Now…it’s your turn.  What are your random musings for the week?  Grab the button and link up below…
