What’s Left?

Did you have a good Labor Day holiday?  I know the kids did since they got the day off from school. The rest of us…?  Well, I had to work - as I believe I have my whole life. But for those of you who got the day off - I hope you grilled out and had a good time - even though it was in the 100’s yesterday. It was so oppressive - with the humidity - which had to be 80%-90% and at 5:30 p.m. when I left the office, it was 103-degrees. Can you believe that? It’s like we live in Arizona. Oh, well, fall will get here soon and hopefully we will have real fall weather.

I have a pet peeve about people who don’t answer your emails - but just a few minutes ago I heard a statistic that said, only 20% of emails get opened. The rest go to spam or just don’t get opened. I don’t know where in the world they get statistics like that but that made me feel better. Because when someone does not answer my email - I get mad. I may never email them again  or maybe I’ll give them one more chance in case the email was overlooked. But when you know they got it and you get no response - that’s just rude.  I know I’ve probably done it, too. And if I have not answered one of your emails you sent me - please accept my apologies and please keep in mind that I might not have received it. Anyway - it is about the same as not returning phone calls - which I also have done on occasion - but it is simply that I couldn’t that day and then the note got lost. (No excuse - I confess.) Anyway - we all need to be more aware of what we do or don’t do and how it affects others. You can’t be too polite! And you can’t be too diplomatic (I don’t think).

I also have lots of other pet peeves - do you want to hear them?  I doubt it but I may share them at some point in the future - so beware.

Go to your happy place.

See you next week!
