ahhh Friday, finally!

and I'm safely tucked away in my own house. Can I just say that I'm a firm believer in the theory that barometric pressure & moon cycles effect people. Here is an example of one of the totally insane phone calls I received at work today:

Me: "Good afternoon Municipal Court, may I help you."

Young female caller: " Um yes, I was thinking of coming to the beach this weekend will you be evacuating the town?"

Me: "Well, this is the Court...I don't know."

Caller: "What do you mean you don't know? I just want to know if I can come down this weekend."

Me: " Well I really don't know. I haven't seen a weather report since before 7 this morning. I don't know what is going on. Let me see..."

Caller: "This is F***ing ridiculous; all I want to know is if I can come to the beach this weekend!"


Now before I was rudely interupted my statement was going to be..."Let me see if I can transfer you to someone who might know." Most phone calls were just as insane through out my day, yet the majority were work related...not Hurricane related. You really have to love being a public servant sometimes :wink:

Anyway, safely tucked away at home. Hanna can bring on her rain/wind tomorrow. Currently we're just under a Tropical Storm Warning, so it's not expected to be to bad at this point. I just finished printing pictures. I have ideas for several layouts floating around in my head and plan on spending the day scrapping away. Hopefully, Hanna will move out on Saturday night because Sunday afternoon we have a soccer game.

I wish I could say I was surprised by people's egocentric attitude and rudeness, but...I'm not. I AM sorry that you had to deal with it though!
