This entire weekend has been a wash out, so Friday afternoon a friend and I went to the movies. I haven't been in years since we built our home theater room in 2002. (We wrote off movie theaters from then on.) But, since we're up at the lake, my friend and I decided to go see "The Time Traveler's Wife" (a chick flick) which ended up being a real disappointment, but that is not the topic of this post.
When we arrived, the theater was empty. Totally empty. In fact, we were the only ones in our screening room. You'd think that would mean extra room for us, but it was no different than being squeezed between other viewers. The seats were so tiny. How an overweight person could have sat down was beyond us. And believe me, in this particular town, I have seen many, many obese people, but they must not go to the movies. Anyhoo, this is still not the topic of this post. (It's a great day for rambling, so please excuse me if you are still here reading this blather)
The following is not the exact dialogue since we are both ladies and would never think to speak like this, but you can get the feel of what was going on in our minds and would like to have said.
Us: Hey buddy, you tell us we have to get these huge-ass cups, then FILL 'EM UP!!.
Him: Well, I thought you didn't want the extra drink?
Us: Well, Mr. Einstein, if you are going to waste your company's money, do it right, and go all the way, okay!
Needless to say, we didn't finish our drinks.
And, exactly why is our economy in the crapper, our health care system a mess, and obesity out of control??
