You'd think in this day and age people would be a tad more considerate. I mean really; instead of acting like they live in a bubble, I wish they would start thinking of their neighbors. And realize that their actions affect us all; the people who have to share the same earth.
But noooo.... they just breeze through their life, only concerned about themselves, not caring a whit that they are polluting everyone's environment.
What am I ranting on about?
Yep, the crazy woman my daughter and I were forced to listen to as we awaited the Orthodonist.
Seconds after we arrived in the dental waiting room, my ears were assaulted with a strange sound; not unlike the buzzing of an irritating mosquito... but I couldn't quite pinpoint its origin. My face must have revealed my aggravation, for daughter nudged me, rolled her eyes and nodded her head toward the culprit. Duh! The only other person in the otherwise silent room was sitting at the end of our row of chairs, reading a magazine and humming.
And humming some more.
And not quietly. Oh no. This was LOUD humming.
The kind that prevents any kind of concentration on anything...
... except the humming.
So in lieu of scrambling over the chairs and forcably attempting to mute her, WE began to hum. Really loudly. Sadly... it didn't work. It didn't even faze her.
She just kept on humming. The LEAST she could have done was hum something decipherable, but regrettably it was the musical equivalent of gibberish.
Daughter was overjoyed when her reprieve finally came to leave and get her braces tightened. I was left to bear a far greater pain. For I had to wait alone and endure...
Oh, you didn't think I meant THIS type of Hummer
Well, yeah, I hate those Hummers almost as much.
