Not every day is a good day...

Seriously, don't think everything here is as awesome as some of my pictures make it seem! I was in such a bad mood yesterday and every little tiny thing started to annoy me. I didn't like my job, my boss, this city, the weather, etc...nothing about this place.

To top it all off...I went to the grocery store after work. As I was standing in line to check out (and my basket was pretty full considering I have not been shopping in a couple of weeks and I have guests coming this weekend) this lady comes up and jumps right in front of me in line. She says something in French and places her items on the counter. I was appalled. I have witnessed Europeans not wanting to stand in line, but I have NEVER experienced someone jumping right in front of me and not leaving. At first I thought she was just placing her items there while she picked up a little hand-basket...but no, she put her items down and did not leave. Moments like this is when I wish I knew more French. I was so shocked that this happened I was speechless and could not even say a word. I proceeded to just glare at her the whole time we were in line. This was not a day to be messing with me.

When I got home and unloaded the car, I ordered Pizza Hut. Seriously...after a day like this, I needed a taste of home and it was sooooo good!

I leave for Memphis 2 weeks from today and I could not be any more excited. The only thing saving me right now is Ginnie and Gail coming in town in 2 hours from right now! I am so excited I can barely type!

See you all very soon!

    Europeans may be good at being bad, and you should have been frustrated, but we have the same jerks in Memphis. Man, how frustrating - especially when it just caps off the crummy day.
