Wassup Wit Dat!

Soooooo Close

May 23rd, 2016

We've been brought up to finish wat you start - well, at least most of us. It's an action dat you try to instill into generation aftah generation dat unless you are committed to complete watevah task is at hand, don't start 'em then.

It's mostly prevalent in youth sports as we try to "teach them a lesson". I've seen many kids come through the program not 'wanting' to play but once they realize dat they are having fun, learning and gaining life experiences, they're wanting to come back the next season. I've shared countless examples with da players like, "why would you sprint 137' knowing dat you only got 3' left to score... and then jog the remaining 3'?" You already sprinted 137, was it that much exasperating to run da remaining 3'?

Think about cooking. Would you prep a 30 ingredient meal with a dozen pans and dishes taking you two hours to prepare..... only to leave it on da stove or in da oven? Would you put on shoes to go on a run and not tie up your laces? Would you go shopping and leave your wallet at home? Wait, now dat might be something you'd want to do.

See anything wrong with dis?







Try look again if you missed but in case you no can figgah it out......

Dis is probably a bit more obvious:





Wassup Wit Dat!

How can you, in pic 1, miss da entire cart return area? Seriously, you were able to push da cart all da way down but didn't want to put it in da actual cart return? Ai-goo.

In pic 2, I actually witnessed dis one. A 55-65 year old Japanee/Filipino looking man was returning his cart and refused to push it three more feet into da cart return. I had to do a double take and chuckled a little. Seriously, da front of da cart was inside already but he couldn't either walk it fully in or give it a small push to roll it in?? He just walked away as if nothing.

Wen I returned our cart aftah loading our car, I 'finished' Uncle's intent. lol

C'mon, have you evah done dat? Well, maybe not da cart thing but started something and nevah finished? We live in da real world and we all have been there, done dat. Whether there may have been some reason or justification for not finishing, let's hope (work for) finishing it especially if you're just three feet away.

Or at least have enough strength to push da cart through.

    Was just wondering about how to find your blog. Cannot find the link in any easy to see place for months. Ever since the new format I suppose.

    Guilty of leaving the cart in the parking stall in front of the car. But will push the cart from across the lane if it is right there. By push I mean fly the buggah aiming to get it in the slot.

    When I return my cart I would line it up with the other loose wagons and push um in together so no stay all hemajang. Bumbye da buggah roll backwards 😆 But yeah sometime I can get OCD.

    I always make sure to return my cart properly otherwise I would feel bad getting pissed off when I get a cart ding or have to move a cart to get into one of the few (Costcos) spaces available.

    Whenever I'm tempted to leave my cart, I remember my pastor saying that it's the little things like putting the cart back that matter. He said that the store provides the carts and a place to return them as a shopping convenience for the customers. The least we can do is return them where they belong so they don't damage someone's vehicle or cause a safety hazard.

    Sorry, I feel da same way. Blogs are not a priority and not news anyways - it's "entertainment". lol

    It reminds me of drivers that park outside/inside the marked line, either the left or right often askew with left front fender beyond the left line and right rear fender beyond the right line. Then the poor guy who parked his "Porsche" straddling the line, using 2 spaces and had the right door dented deeply by a disgruntled driver. Actually this happened before our very eyes. This elder guy in a beat up rattle-trap circled the lot several times squeezed his car next to Porsche and then proceeded to open his door and turned his hip around to lift his feet to the door and then push with force, calmly straighten up in his seat and backed up. Before we could gather our senses, he drove off thereby preventing us from getting his car's license plate numbers.
