Tonight is the Rittman Band's winter concert. However I have opted to stay home tonight as Mrs.74WIXYgrad has had a rough day and I feel that my first duty is to her. Hopefully I will get some photos emailed to me via the Brendacam.
This afternoon I worked until 4:30 as we are getting ready for the quality audit. The weather has been cold and sloppy so it was a relatively slow ride on I-77.
The WIXYmobile needed some gas, so I got off 77 on the Harvard Ave. exit. The BP station had regular unleaded for $2.86 a gallon, which is over 10 cents less than in Wadsworth. Of course the pumps were busy and two were out of order. I get behind this person in an SUV. He went inside to prepay, and to get sandwiches from the Subway inside the store. I decide it was a good time to do some reading. As I am still waiting on this person to get out and pump his gas, the van in front of him(which pulled up to the pump at the same time) had finished. He pulled away, and I pulled around and up to the pump. I start fueling the WIXYmobile the same time Mr. SUV starts fueling his car. He finishes before me and goes back into the store, I thought to get some change from the transaction. He comes out with a bag of chips. I pull up to a parking space in front of the store. I go in to get a cup of coffee. Mr. SUV goes back in to buy a can of beer. His vehicle is still in front of the pump. Boy does he need a crash course in consideration. He finally leaves as I am leaving the store with my coffee.
Back on the freeway, and the traffic is slower than when I got off. I am listening to the radio to get some traffic report. As I am listening to the ignorance going over the air, the traffic report finally comes on. The host keeps talking over the traffic report, so I didn't get to hear if 77 had any significant accidents. I know the area, so I could have mapped an alternate route for myself if I had to. I know Biz, I will put 850 on my presets. I listened to the news report and couldn't take anymore insulting of my intelligence, so I plug my mp3 player in for the rest of the drive. Cleveland needs another local talk show, one with a host who's main talent isn't acting like a buffoon. There's another talk station in town, WHK/1420, but it's owner-Salem Broadcasting- is only interested in running a station as cheaply as possible, and when they do get a decent show on, it goes away.
