Hello and welcome back to the wonderful world of the Dogpound. I had a bit of a strange event this past weekend…some might even consider it bizarre that I even bring this up, but that has never stopped me before. LOL
I was on the way to a college football game via an invitation from one of my vendors, when I got stuck in traffic. I was close to the stadium, but traffic had not moved for over 15 minutes and the gum in my mouth started to get really stale. I figured I had chewed this stick for over an hour and it might help to make the time pass a bit faster with a fresh piece of gum, but what to do with the old piece. I could swallow it, but I was just not in the mood for a hard ball of gum sitting in my empty stomach. I could toss it out the window but I was feeling a bit subconscious about what the fans [that surrounded me in their cars] might think of my littering, even though it was only a little piece of gum that might go unnoticed anyway. So I figured out a sly plan. I would roll down the passenger window and then nonchalantly take the gum out of my mouth, lower my hand down to the steering wheel and flick the gum out the window while looking straight ahead as if nothing was happening.
Well, it worked…the gum flew out the window, but it never made it to the vine covered roadside…it found the passenger side mirror and there it stuck. After all that subterfuge I was not going to go over and pick the gum off the mirror…just figured it would eventually fall off. I forgot all about that gum when I got to the parking lot, and later, whenever I did notice it, I was doing 70 mph down the highway.
Well, do you know that this gum stayed glued to the mirror all day even after driving for hours at freeway speeds and through the wind and rain. Then when I got home…just a simple flick of the finger made the gum come right off the mirror. Now is that amazing or what?
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
“It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.”
THE FRIENDLY SKIES
A customer was really hassling an airline agent at the ticket counter – yelling and using foul language. However, the agent was polite, pleasant and smiled while the customer continued to abuse her. When the man finally left, the next person in line said to the agent, “Does that happen often? I can’t believe how nice you were to him.” The agent smiled and said, “No problem, I took care of it. He’s going to Detroit. His bags are going to Bangkok.”
That is it for today. As always be good, play safe and remember little things can be amazing.
