We're coming into a long weekend here in Canada. May "24" weekend formally known as "Victoria Day weekend". It's a weekend essentially for partying, usually the first serious camping weekend of the year with fireworks, BBQ's and just generally having fun with family and friends.
Currently, the price of gas is down -- WAY DOWN -- from what it has been as of late. However, with the long holiday weekend coming up, prices will undoubtedly rise. They always do. It is just the nature of the beast.
Yesterday and today things have been hectic, chaotic and otherwise insane. Yesterday however it was later in the afternoon, today however -- I pulled up to sheer lunacy. Cars lined up in both direction, 3 deep at least and all in a foul mood.
While I was sitting in the car; canoodling with my husband; (okay not REALLY canoodling with Alan... but I've always wanted to use that in a sentence) I could see my co-worker standing outside. I was perplexed as to why she was standing outside in amidst all the cars staring and watching something. I didn't know why. It wasn't until I got in that I found out exactly why -- a woman had cut a gentleman else off, and when the gentleman went to confront the woman, she threw him up on the hood of her car!! In the four years I have worked at this establishment, I have never seen physical violence between two people. Yelling, screaming and finger gestures yes... but NEVER actual physical violence. I was shocked. Especially since (keeping in mind) the area I work in has always been regarded as a pretty "high brow" area of the city. Apparently they're not above a bit of a throw down at the gas station! How gangsta of them!
I've never understood the rage over the gas. The price isn't going to change, and we're not going to run out of gas... and we're not about to raise it 40cents the moment "you" pull up. So just sit back, chillax and listen to some music while you wait. Patiently.
