Sitting Here Twiddling My Thumbs

Ah, such is life. Just sitting here waiting for our UPS LTL freight guy to show up to pick up our freight shipments. Ladee, da. Gosh, I hate waiting, and it seems such a waste of time. I could be digging into an ice cold beer right now. Don't get me wrong. I love extra money as much as the next guy, and while the bulk of my compensation comes from commissions, I DO still also get an hourly wage, and this is overtime... But I REALLY do not want to be here right now. I feel like a little kid waiting for Santa, peering out the window, awaiting that UPS truck.

I'm not good at waiting either. I hope it gets there soon.

He showed up around 5:40 PM. I got an hour of OT out of it at least. AND was able to MyLot a bit. Win, win.

@porwest It's always good to be in a win/win situation.

@just4him It is much better than lose/lose.

Well, I hope mylotting can help distract you a bit. I will admit that I did not see the R in peering at first.

Certainly that might have made my waiting a bit more entertaining...peeing out the window.

I do. I would not say I am on the level of say, a Hendrix or a Tommy Iommi, or Jimmy Page...but I do well enough for my own enjoyment. I hope you get to share some of your videos on here.

@ShifaLk Don't have an opportunity at the moment to check this out, but I have saved the link so I can later. Here was a little something I did a while back.
Just messing around with my video and sound recording stuff and thought I'd share. This is a Kurt Vile song.

Obviously I was doing a little bit of that too. I was done with my actual work. So, just sitting waiting for the UPS guy to show up. He finally came around about 5:40 PM and I was able to manage an hour of OT out of it.

@porwest It is not nice to be waiting for things to happen.

@marguicha No. It's not. And I am impatient, especially when I would rather be at home.

I think we must spend half our life waiting for something. And many times were left wondering why were wasting that time

You know it. One place I can think of is the doctor's office. It's always nice to walk in for your 10:30 appointment to realize 100 other people ALSO have a 10:30 appointment.

@porwest Precisely....I have taken to bringing a Sun Disc Ipod with me on Doctor's visits or car appointments where I wait. It keeps me and the crosswords I'm doing company while waiting for my name to be called

Waiting is always a pain. Fortunately I don't have too many things I have t wait long for -- except for dentist appointments to be over.

Funny, have not heard that saying (in your title) in awhile. myLot comes in useful sometimes.

It depends on my mindset at the time. Sometimes waiting drives me crazy. Hopefully that truck came soon after you posted.

My husband is the world's worst waiter. I don't have too much of a problem with it. May your shipment be there before you even read this.

I hate to wait, I'm not at all patient at all.
