Did you miss me? Saint Karen (who must be a saint to put up with me) retired and I took a little while off from the Sisyphus Project. We went to Boston, we went to the Poconos, we went to the Delaware Water Gap to see Fall colors, because when we went the only Fall color where we live was green.
Did you vote? I hope so. You can still complain if you didn’t vote, but still, you should vote. And, it’s more important to vote in local elections than in the Presidential election. Local elections have fewer voters, so each vote is a bigger percent of the total.
Why is everything more expensive in an expensive hotel? Five dollars for a cup of coffee, not a fancy, Starbucks-style coffee drink, a simple cup. And valet parking was convenient, but it was almost three times as expensive as parking in a public garage.
Speaking of expensive hotels, why don’t they offer services that are common in less expensive places? Specifically, free breakfast and free Wi-Fi.
I went to the men’s room in the Burger King across from Boston Common. There was no urinal, so I lifted the seat to take care of my needs. A question arose when I finished. Was I supposed to put the seat back down, or since it’s a men’s room, should I have left it up?
Why doesn’t the Lupus Foundation or Big Brother and Big Sister contract with local governments to collect all their trash? I understand charities are exempt from the federal no-call law. Because each has a worthy purpose, I’m less inclined to be rude to the people who call on their behalf to advise us they have a donation truck in my area. Still, I think both are seriously overdoing their telemarketing efforts by a long shot.
