    So I got yelled at yesterday while minding my own business getting the mail at work. My mask had slipped down over my nose and all of a sudden this woman comes up behind me and starts yelling about my mask and how she has cancer. I was like, "it JUST happened!" and defending myself while walking back to my office.

    Why am I irked? Because after this encounter I came up with all the reasons yelling at me was unnecessary and out of line and, of course, now I can't lecture her on why she didn't need to be such a *kitten*.

    People are very stressed right now, which is leading to a lot of misplaced anger. If she really does have cancer, she's probably more on edge than the rest of us. I'm giving people the benefit of the doubt these days. No, you didn't deserve to be yelled at, but you also don't know what is going on in this woman's life.

    I wouldn't normally have that opinion. In "normal times" I'd agree this woman was being a "kitten" and should mind her own business. But right now, there's too much anxiety in the general population, and that's going to come out sometimes.

    I get misplaced anger. I don't get letting myself be a punching bag because of it. I'm sorry she has cancer but I would have more sympathy if she hadn't come out of the gate yelling at me. Not to mention she was standing awfully close while yelling. All that misplaced anger must have made her forget to social distance. Since I'm not psychic and she had ample room to walk around me, I don't feel bad for wanting to set her straight...in my after incident fantasies.

    When people review a book and give it a poor review based solely on their political disposition as opposed to actually reading the book and trying to delve into the author's mindset.

    In this instance; it's a non-fiction book about a certain subset of American folk and the life that the author had growing up (very different than where he is nowadays).

    Yes and similar to this, I don't get giving poor/negative reviews for accounts of people's lives, generally. Books, movies or other media. Documentary or fictionalized.

    Like, you disapprove of their life, the sharing of their perspective or...? It potentially points to a concerning range of intolerance and inflexibility to me 🤷🏿‍♀️

    This always makes me chuckle when I read it on a recipe I want to try. Like why bother commenting that you tried it at all when you subbed out half the recipe for other things??

    Pretty much. What's even more odd is that this guy even admitted upfront that because it was a memoir of sorts about his childhood (he was only 31 when the book was published), there were probably parts that were inaccurately portrayed or glossed over because as we get older, we forget certain things, embellish others and otherwise alter memories. That's just what all humans do. He ended up having his sister proofread and go over it since she was slightly older and might have recalled things a bit differently.

    But again, he was upfront that the book while as true as he could recall, might still be flawed as human memory is fleeting at best.

    Why isn't my Halloween candy on sale at Target yet? I mean, I can still buy my mini baby ruths but I'd rather not pay $15.99 for them.

    And speaking of Target, when did most of their sale items become "with one day shipping"? Don't you pay extra for that privilege? What's the point? 😀

    Ive got an eye wash station in my garage for just such occasions. Well, technically it's for washing chemicals out, but it's used for getting shmutz out of my eyes much more often.

    What really irks me is a political response to a non political question.

    @slimgirljo15 Steve is smart with that eyewash station, most construction/maintenance/welding/mechancial/electrical places have them. Go stand in the shower if you haven't already. Don't rub your eyeballs.

    How does it feel today? My mom always told me to pull the upper lid down over the lower lid. While I hated doing it, it did sometimes work. I wonder if you somehow scratched your eyeball?
    Hope it feels better soon. Eyeball irritation can be mighty irritating.
    ETA: just saw your latest update, so hopefully it's good today too. :)
