Keep shopping while you wait to check out…

Nerd glasses are now cool

Recently I was picking up some eyeglasses at Costco. Side note, if you don’t have insurance for your eyeballs then Costco is the way to go for exams and corrective lenses. When I got to the counter and the lady asked how could she help me. From the other side of the showcase, a lady said she was here first. Yeah, she was there first but she was still shopping and trying on glasses for her child. She was there first but wasn’t in line to pay, there is a difference. It’s like going to the grocery store and getting there when the doors open, shopping for hours, and cutting in front of someone who just arrived and got their items and is ready to check out. People love the FIFO system, but sometimes LIFO is relevant.

Also, Why are the horned-rimmed glasses from the ’50s and 60’s so popular? The same glasses that labeled you a nerd then are making you cool today. Strange world.

Making your own lane

Stuck in traffic? Don’t want to wait patiently like everyone else? Make your own lane out of the shoulder of the road. Whenever someone does this and I’m getting off the next exit legally, I match their speed so they have to stay on the shoulder as long as possible. I figure since they wanted to ride on the shoulder and kick up rocks for people behind them they can do it until they are forced to squeeze back in. If they are turning left off the exit then they can make a U turn after they make a right from the shoulder.
