I’m afraid I’ve been thinking.  A dangerous pastime, I know.  Just kidding, in all honesty I have been thinking about some pretty serious things lately.  I am at a place in my life where I have achieved a lot of my big life goals.  I’ve finished school, I’m working on my career, I have traveled quite a lot (not nearly as much as I plan to of course, but quite a bit for my age), I have a car that I own free and clear and I’ve purchased a home.  At this point I am at a bit of a stand still.  I’m not quite sure where I’m going now.  I want a family.  I very much want a husband and children.  My own personal values are such that I don’t participate in sex before marriage, so obviously the children bit isn’t going to happen before marriage, so it’s frustrating in some ways for me to be stuck at this juncture.  I have had a lot of dating experience and I know what I’m looking for, but for some reason I’m having problems right now with the guys I’m dating.  I am not finding that I am able to date the men who have the attributes I am looking for.  The ones who do have what I’m looking for aren’t asking me out.  *sigh*  I can’t even begin to explain how much I want a family and I feel like this is the next thing in my life.  I know that everything will work out.  It can just be hard sometimes.

Yep!  I read these on one of my friend’s shared blogs so I really don’t know where she found them.  Anyway, I laughed really hard… Then I stole them.

(Record Store | Las Vegas, NV, USA)

(A customer about the age of thirty walks into the store.)

Me: “Hello, how may I help you today?”

Customer: “Yes, I’m looking for some recent Beatles records. Do you have any?”

Me: *assuming she means recent re-releases* “Hold on one second.”

(I find some and hand it to her.)

Customer: “Thank you so much! The Beatles are my favorite band! I would shoot myself if they ever broke up!”

Customer behind her: “Well, get your gun ready.”

(Post Office | Brisbane, Australia)

Customer: “I need to pay this bill and the bank said I had to come to the post office.”

Me: “Ok, that will be $625.80.”

Customer: “No, it’s $500.”

Me: “No, it’s $500 US. In Australian dollars, that’s $625.80.”

Customer: “No, it says right there it’s $500. You are just discriminating against my daughter!”

Me: “Um…”

Customer: “How else can you justify a $125 fee?”

Me: “Our fee is $8; the Australian dollar is only around .8 of the American dollar.”

Customer: “So what you are saying is, I would be better off paying a thousand dollars?”

(This continues for some minutes until an old lady in line behind the customer speaks up.)

Old Lady: “I’m going to have to go to another post office. This will never get resolved. This woman is just too stupid to live!”

I am proud of my country.  I don’t say it enough, but I am very proud to be an American!  I know that not everyone agrees with me, but I am so thankful and forever indebted to the brave military men and women who make sure that we stay free.  Free to make decisions on how we want to live our lives.  I’m thankful for freedom of speech, freedom to bear arms and freedom of religion. I am so thankful for God.  I am thankful for the freedom to choose what I do with my life.  That He has not made my choices for me, but that He gives me the freedom to make those decisions even if they are wrong.  I am so thankful for my ancestors who did what they did so that I can be where I am today.  For the brave founding fathers (and mothers) who built this country at the beginning and all throughout our history.  I am grateful for the teachers who have made a difference and for the great people who have decided that people are people no matter what they look like or believe.  As long as they are good people who act like decent, kind human beings, they should be treated nicely.  I am grateful for the valiant politicians (yes, I think that there are a couple of you out there) who stand for something and don’t abandon their morals because it’s more popular.  Keep going.  And I’m thankful for my family.  They support me when I am down and they help me be a better person.  I love you!

Happy Independence Day!
