Arrogance is just plain annoying (and rude). yesterday at work, i was running a speedy check out lane. its meant for those w/ just a few items so they can get through fast. it's not meant for those who have a cart full of stuff. it says "20 items" or less. its a strong suggestion. any who... i had an elderly couple come through yesterday w/ a good bit more than 20. i kept my mouth shut but the lady behind them didn't. the guy started yelling back. i was inches away from actually chewing him out to be honest w/ ya. i honestly wanted to wring his neck. and then take him out back and give him some advice. but you know what... that really wouldn't've solved a whole lot. i mean, it would've got a lot of frustration off my chest considering yesterday was just one of those days that i wanted to start kicking butt and taking names (we had a really small staff yesterday) and just things just didn't seem to work properly at all.
war on terror (in Iraq and all over).
I want to say that i stand behind our President and our leaders and our troops. i wish i could say the same for the American public. frankly, i don't get us Americans. and i'm not going to be surprised if we get attacked again and/or another act of God hits us. frankly, we need to repent of our sins. i know, that worked isn't too well liked at all. it means we have to admit fault, and i know how much we all love that. but frankly, we're not as great as what we think we are. we have organizations in this country that have no other agenda than to hurt us. (ACLU and others like them). but again, i stand by and salute our service men and women. i stand by and say thank you President Bush for taking a stand. its time for us to get a clue folks. its time for we as a Body of Christ to repent and ask for God to intervene. i don't understand how we can support our troops and yet not stand by the commander. thats lunacy. i also want to say, to all those families of the troops "thank you." its totally ignorant of those who are thousands of miles away from the Middle East to complain. lets just say for a second that our troops suddenly pull out. do you realize that we'll be left defenseless and we'll be saying to the Muslim extremists "go ahead, do whatever you want b/c we won't defend ourselves against you." how can you justify standing alongside the army while speaking out against our leadership?
all this said, i hate the idea of war. i really do. i don't like the idea of sending someone possibly to their death. however, a cause needs to be fought for.
