The art of annoyance

First - the good news. Gidget is gonna be okay. The vet dumped this funky dye in her eyes and then shined a blacklight on them, and he said that he didn't see any sort of scratches on her corneas. So that's good. We just have to put this ointment in her eye 3 times a day. Oh, and she has a mild ear infection, so I have to clean those every day too. Fun times. I'm glad she is okay.

Today, my husband came in and told me that my friend had called me on the phone about 20 minutes earlier, so I called her back. She asked me what I was doing and I told her nothing, which was technically true since I was still in bed. Turns out, this weekend was the Festival of the Arts in downtown Tempe! I can't believe we almost missed it. Since today was the last day, we rounded up the kids and headed down.

It amazes me how rude people can be. These people aren't just out there selling any old stuff, they are selling their ART. I can't tell you how many times I heard people, IN THE BOOTH, saying I can't believe they are charging blank for that, that's outrageous, I can get something similar at walmart or the mall way cheaper. I felt bad for some of the artists.

On the way home, we stopped at Petsmart to get some dog shampoo, because the kids were FILTHY. There is an A & W in the same little shopping strip, and I was thinking a root beer float was sounding really good, so we pulled into the drive through. Can you believe that A & W didn't have any root beer??? That made me sad.

Then when we got home I found a coupon for a free sub at Quiznos, so my husband decided that sounded good since the coupon expired today. When we got there, there were two little kids working behind the counter. The woman making the sandwiches had to make mine three times before she got it right, and said it was her first day. I asked the older looking of the two kids who was running the register how old he was, and he said he was twelve. I'm thinking that's GOT to be illegal somehow. The other kid was pulling the sandwiches out of the oven and topping them. I really wonder what goes through peoples heads sometimes when they think things like that are a good idea.

I know I know. Don't eat fast food and you won't have to deal with that. BLAH.

So funny about the Quiznos! Twelve???!!!! I feel that way when I see guys driving down the street whose faces are covered with pimples and they can barely see over the steering wheel. I want to wave them over and say, "What? Are you 12 years old driving this car?" Of course, I think it just means that I'm getting OLD and everyone else just looks young!!
I totally agree on the art festival thing! They are artists and I can't imagine how upset they get when people make such comments. There are so many people who just don't get the fact that "art" is worth money!!!
