Oh how these mom and pop shops like to tease….


I do not know what it is.  It seems like every locally owned business that I visit has done this at one time or another.  Whether it be a nail salon, a used cd shop, a pawn shop, a pizza place, a yarn store… They all seem to be guilty of misleading me at one time or another. 

The horrible offense that I am speaking of is leaving the “Open” sign on well after they have closed for the night.  Some businesses DO stay open later than the hours which are posted on their signs…so I admit I have fallen prey to this.  I wonder sometimes if they have a hidden camera and are watching to see just how many do fall for this cruel joke.  I wonder if they are going to jump out and say “Smile! You’re on Candid Camera” or something equally asinine. 

The businesses that do this are varied and are owned by many a nationality.  There is absolutely NO common thread between them other than that they are not chain stores or franchises.  Just last night on the way home from the pharmacy we encountered a pawn shop and a buy here/pay here car lot with their open signs gleaming in the darkness, beckoning the  unsuspecting to pull in, stop and come inside…don’t worry…we will be waiting to serve your every need (Psych!!)

Those poor shoppers pull into these businesses with their lights on and stop their cars, take off their seat belts, haul their weary bones out of their car after a long hard day of work and walk hopefully up to the door.  Upon reaching the door their hopes are dashed upon the rocks of despair.  The business is in fact closed.

Curse you, small business owner that refuses to turn off your “Open” sign.  Curse you and your cruel mischievous ways.

Baby with a weave?? Surely you jest….


BABY WEAVE 2

 

Unfortunately there is no joke (at least none that has been proven to be a joke).

Ummm……wow. 

So there is not much to say about this photo that has not been said already….

This is sad.  I feel so sorry for that poor baby girl.  What kind of parents would put a weave on a newborn baby???


Versatile Blogger Award – A cry for help…..


Ok so I am petitioning you, my readers.  I would like one of these.  Not because I think that it is an important award sure to bring me more readers.  But because I am currently writing a wandering rants blog, a survivor blog AND a blog that is going to be turned into a book once I have enough material in it.

My links are:

www.whereismyreallife.wordpress.com

www.victimnomore.wordpress.com

AND

www.adayinthelifeanaveragenorthamericanwitch.wordpress.com

So I would like for someone to give me one of these please.  Also, tell your friends…send them on over for some fun reading.  And while you are at it, tell WordPress to freshly press me.  Really, I believe that it is about time I got one of those things too. 

**finally takes a breath**

Ok rant over.
