We’re starting a new segment here folks. And it’s so serious that I added an entire new page for it. I was raised to mind me and mine and keep it moving. Live and let live, my parents always said. I have followed that philosophy for most of my adult life. You don’t bother me, I won’t bother you. It’s served me well these 20 some odd years. But…and this is a big but…not to be confused with ‘big butt’ which doesn’t lie but anyway….there are just some things that truly drive me bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S. I try not to complain a lot to those around me but this blog gives me the perfect opportunity to let it out. So…drumroll please…Anna’s bananas is born!
The banana of the day is: people that don’t use proper roadway etiquette. So picture this. I’m in the car this morning, on my way to drop my son off to daycare. One of my favorite songs comes on the radio, “Hello” by Adele. Morning traffic is pretty bad because it’s morning traffic so I’m sitting in a long line at a red light. I look over to my right and see a car with a woman in it that is frantically waving at me and asking with her gestures if she could get in front of me when the light turns green. I’m in a pretty good mood and feeling gracious despite the vomit-inducing level of traffic and let her in. It was then that she broke a rule that might as well be the 11th commandment as far as I’m concerned. SHE DIDN’T THANK ME! I know I’m not the only one that looks for that wave of a hand to indicate their appreciation for your graciousness. She didn’t even look my way! Not a glance, not a hand, not a finger up, nothing!! Thou shall not not give the hand of thanks!
EVERYONE KNOWS you have to throw up the hand when someone lets you in!! Ooooooooooo she made my blood boil. So, lady in the blue Corolla wearing a red top and white beanie hat, if you are reading this, you suck!
And that folks, is Anna’s banana for the day.
