The more people I meet, the more I love my dogs. I’ve heard this phrase over the years, and Carrie Underwood even has a song about it…
My most recent experience that makes me love my dogs more was at a bank. I was second in line to deposit some cash and there was only one teller. She began helping the gentleman in front of me so I checked my phone while I waited for them to finish. Little did I know the teller working the drive-through stepped over to a window to help me. All I heard as I became aware was the gentleman who was ahead of me say, “He’s on his phone…” followed by a snarky chuckle.
OK, that’s fine. We can let that slide. But as I’m talking to the woman about my deposit, I overhear him say to his teller, something like, “I know there’s a sign that says no cell phones in the lobby.” Really, guy? That’s how you’re going to be?
You will not even believe what happened next. As he and I are both waiting for our transactions to wrap up, his phone rings. He shows it to the tellers and myself as if he’s about to make an exception to his rule, “It’s my dad!” he says, and begins talking to his dad on the phone.
All I could do was laugh. Well, that’s not true, I definitely said something.
But really? Are most people a-holes, nowadays?
I’m going to hug my dogs now. Have a good one, folks!
