Weekend Wrap-up

August 24th, 2003

Today was another fantastic day. We contemplated seeing a movie, and finally decided on Freaky Friday. We both though it was pretty funny. I enjoyed it a lot … and I love Jamie Lee Curtis.

Afterwards we had lunch at Pepe’s. The service was good until right at the end. The waitress brought the check and I handed her my credit card because I was ready to go. Well, she wouldn’t take it because unlike other restaurants, apparently they don’t take your card until you fill out the gratuity line. Bah! And then she walked away even though it took me two seconds to fill it out. And so we waited. And waited some more. And then I started getting annoyed because one of my pet peeves is waiting forever just so I can pay. If you want my money, don’t make me wait, otherwise you tempt me to pull a dine and ditch. [Not that I would ever really do that]. Needless to say, I got tired of waiting and went up to where I could be seen with my bill and credit card in hand. The girl apologized because she could tell I was mad, and made some excuse about being short staffed. Like that is *my* problem. If she had just waited two seconds, things would have been fine. So I ignored her and didn’t say a word. What’s that saying? If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all. Better than me lecturing her, right? ;)

Late afternoon we went to Cosley Zoo to satisfy our photo-taking hunger. They had a bunch of new animals, including some raccoons and a coyote, so that was cool. I got some nice shots of this cute white duck too. He was talking to me the whole time. Really cute.
