My assistant rang me early this morning to say that there was nowhere closer than 2 miles from her polling place to park and that the line was 3 blocks long – and that was still nearly an hour before the poll opened. At that rate she estimated she would not be at work until lunch time. As I had PT (physio) first thing this morning I told her I would let her go at 2.30pm today so she could vote on the way home. I do expect to see an "I voted" sticker tomorrow or I will assume she spent the afternoon in the movies!
In my PT waiting room there is a very large sign asking people to Please Turn off Cell Phones. My quiet reading time was interrupted when the phone of a guy sitting absolutely dead opposite this sign went off with some really hideous ring tone.
He answered in a really loud voice and began giving advice to someone about online dating sites. As his conversation progressed I started hoping that they would not call me in for my session until he had finished his conversation! Apparently he joined eHarmony after discovering that whatever previous one he was a member of was full of conservative, Christian women! (I nearly laughed out loud ). He was unbelievably sexist. He began discussing some friend of his who met a woman, named Lea, he said "he told Lea that if she wanted to have a relationship with him then she had to obey his rules. So far she has been very obedient". (now I've gone from wanting to laugh to wanting to slap him).
He told his caller that his fiancee was having PT for "something stupid she has done".
When the poor woman came out at the end of her session I wanted to shout at her to run away. This guy was no catch in the looks, manners or any other department that I could see.
