The No-Fail Way to Make Me Roll My Eyes

5 Aug

1. When you have someone who is a sales person that says the same thing over and over.

2. The telephone solicitor that for some reason can’t understand the word “NO”.

3. The waiter that is terrible during the whole performance and then says “thank you so much and I hope you have a “really” nice evening” – as they hand you the bill with those soft moving hands !

The Worst Teacher I Ever Had

26 Jul

Timken Roller Bearing Co., calendar, September 1950, teacher at desk

This is an interesting question that I’ll have answer with the name Arda (R……….y) keep her last name semi-private. I grew up in La Honda California which was a very small town and in the 60’s we even rode horses to school at times. Although I went to a one room school house (at a church) where you would think a good education would be… It wasn’t for me. I was in 3rd grade, but the teacher, a great lady, all she taught was science. I still needed all the basics in the 3rd grade, but nope you were getting science!

Oh… the school lasted one year and then the church closed it down.

I think everyone loved Arda and I did too.  Today I actually make use of a lot of her science knowledge, so maybe she was okay after all?
