Other things that really annoyed me today:
People who just stand on escalators taking up both sides, move over if you are just going to stand there especially when someone makes the effort to make a lot of noise when they get stuck behind you. I got tired of asking people to move out of the way.
The second session I signed up for was postponed for a few hours and to kill time I thought I would go play some pinball at Gameworks. They require you to pay $15 minimum to play any games! This would be fine if I were planning to make an afternoon of it, but I wasn't. It is nice that I can use the remainder some other time, but I am not interested in figuring out if and when I was going to come back. Business seemed alittle slow for them to be turing away business, do they really make that much on the weekends to support next to no business during the week.
People with signs begging for money doesn't really bother me as much as amuse me (no I am not amused at homelessness, I buy about 4 copies of the same 'Real Change' every month). Today when the guy with the sign asking for money asked me outloud for money, I got angry. No I didn't do anything other than think angry thoughts. I was thinking, "What the hell; do you think I can't read? If you are going to ask me for money anyway, why do you have to stupid sign. If I am illiterate, I either can't afford to give you money or I am a high ranking member of the republican party and believe I can help you by giving the nicely dressed man next to you money instead".
I think I have mostly been stressing about the barge, how busy it is making me and how slowly the work is going. I am feeling better after stopping by the barge tonight and seeing a whole lot of work was done today. I think they might even be able to finish up with their work by the end of the week (but I am not counting on it).
