    The fact that I have to walk inside on a treadmill because if I walk outside in the heat I’ll get too hot and pass out, throw up or both.
    😒
    But you get to watch 90 Day Fiancé while doing it!

    Customer service in almost every instance has simply evaporated.
    Just simple manners seem to be too much for many to manage. 🙄

    These days I'm just happy that the salesclerk is willing to stop texting and put down her phone long enough to ring up my purchase.

    I’m sick of just water but I’m not allowing myself any liquid calories and I refuse to drink artificial sweetener ….

    I'm also sick of just water so I've started drinking raspberry lemonade water in a 25/75 mix. The calories are negligible and it flavors the water just enough. I also understand and agree with your aversion to artifical sweeteners.

    Look into flavored stevia drops! SweetLeaf is one popular brand.

    Have you tried frozen berries, ginger, lemons, limes, or mint? I get bored of water too.

    I just found out that where I'm living (and recently moved to) has decided to go under a mask mandate again because people can't be arsed to follow basic guidelines or common sense. So now EVERYONE must "mask-up", including those of us who were already fully vaccinated.

    I mean, I honestly kind of expected this to happen again, just maybe not so soon? Also, I just spent 24 hours in an airport where masks were mandatory AT ALL TIMES, so I'm not really pleased to have to go into that kind of environment again for the long-term just to do basic day-to-day stuff.

    What cracks me up is the CDC's recommendations are based on the fact that "D.C. is a city of concern". You don't say? There's several million people who work and live here.

    Guess it's back to social isolation when and if at all possible. :neutral:

    Ugh that is beyond maddening

    Deal. :) If an irk does sneak up on me, I'll save it for tomorrow.
