It just goes to show you - no good deed goes unpunished... For my first foray into R.A.O.K.s, last night on my way home, I stopped to let someone pull out in front of me during a looooong line of endless traffic. I was rewarded by the person behind me flashing their brights on and off and laying on the horn. The line in front of me was JUST beginning to move, the car I was letting out was not going in my direction (as in, in front of me and Mr.Undiesinatwist behind me), but in the opposite direction. I flashed the guy behind me .... the peace sign (that's what you thought I was going to say, right?) and went on my merry way.
Today, I went out of my office building armed with quarters destined for a soon-to-be-lapsed parking meter or two. Great idea, right? Except I was unaware that the city had just started changing over the old meters into ones where you pay at a central point, get a slip of paper and put it inside your car, displayed on your dash. Hmm. Do I do a little BandE (breaking and entering)? I think...no. So I ended up walking four blocks trying to find regular parking meters. I found one that was close to expiring, so I put in my quarters and high-tailed it back to the office before they docked me! Time for Plan B in my continuing battle to inflict kindness on others. Whatever that may be.
I am consoling myself with my latest chopped salad - chopped raw kale, spicy sprouts (my winter crop), dried cranberries and chopped peanuts. Yum!
