Two incidents from yesterday. A woman customer in Job Lot cut into the line at the register because she was in a wheelchair. She said that because she was disabled, she was entitled to do that. When the store disagreed, she called the police. The police agreed with the store.

An old man with a can shoved a teenager out of the way to cut in line. A store employee called the teenager to another register. The old man got furious. "I'm old, and I have a cane. You should wait on me first."

In case you haven't noticed, people are horrible.

Happy Thanksgiving. I'm so glad it will be just my son and me eating dinner - no fighting.

It’s a different world today. Thank goodness there are still a lot of good, common sense, people still in it.

This is nothing new. I saw my mother and her friends think they deserved special treatment because they were old. They spoke out loud about others as if the others could not hear or as if they did not have feelings. I made up my mind when I reached that age I would not behave in such a deplorable manner.

It's one thing to offer, another to expect...........

Jerry i think its only MOST people who are horrible. Lately I've found myself needing a cane more often. I cant tell you how many people give me extra space when they see me coming. Many also ask if I need any assistance.
Lets just concentrate on the many things we all have to be thankful for.
Happy Thanksgiving to you, your son and all the Hoggers out there.

Jerry, Ivan Pavlov was performing experiments using dogs as the subjects. He observed, "What gets rewarded, gets repeated."

When bad behavior gets rewarded, it gets repeated. This is also why being soft on crime only encourages more crime.

True. I meant people in general. If aliens surveyed the universe looking for a species that deserves their help, humans would not make it to their list.

If people are acting like that today, imagine what it will be like Friday (Black Friday shopping). I am glad to say I have never went shopping on Black Friday.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours
