Some people just don’t get it

May 12, 2008 at 9:45 am 2 comments

Saturday morning, a friend and I went garage sale shopping for baby stuff. We’re both expecting and are always looking for some bargains. We got a late start but she was able to find quite a bit of things she’ll need (onesies, blankets, etc.). I really didn’t need much since we stored our daughter’s stuff in the attic.

We finished up our shopping, and headed over to one of the local restaurants for a good breakfast. I tell ya, it hit the spot. We even had a sweet server. A bit slow (because they were busy) but just a sweet, sweet gal.

After we finished up the last bit of biscuits and gravy, the server dropped off our check. I grabbed my cash left her a tip, and headed to the register to pay. As I stood at the register, paying for my meal, two restaurant employees were chatting with the guy at the guy at the register. Complaining, of course, about the ‘outrageous’ gas prices in Mid Missouri. “This is ridiculous,” one of the gals said. “I’m gonna write a letter to the president.” The guy proceeds to tell her that he’d never get the letter. “Well, I’ll write a letter to the oil companies,” she retorted. “They won’t read it either,” he tells her.

I decided to keep my mouth shut, but I just couldn’t help but think, “these people just don’t get it!” Since when does the president of the United States control the price of gas? Oh, I forgot, he’s responsible for all of the economic woes in America, so he should fix them. Right. And I’m freaking Houdini. Sometimes I wonder how people don’t understand simple economics. I thought it was required in high school?
