The Heat Makes People Lazy…Beware

`

It’s no secret that it gets hot here in Arizona. It’s been 105 – 110 for over a week now.

The problem when it finally hits 100 degrees longer than a day or two, is that people’s brains become fried. Tempers get short and the “stupid” comes out.

Stupid and Tempers do not go well together either.

I could go on forever about the stupid things that happen, but I’d rather share them individually throughout the summer.

Today, I had several complaints from customers, employees and even myself today. What are the odds, we all experienced the same special type of “stupid” today?

It’s not secret the heat zaps us of our energy and ability to think. What you might not know, is this lack of energy is so strong that when we get in our vehicles, we lose the ability to turn our head when we back up. Yep, that turning of our head is so strenuous, that to even attempt might cause immediate nap time.

So we just back up, tossing caution to the wind, and letting the dice roll.

Who cares if there is a car coming…my smart car can take down your SUV

Who cares if a kid is walking behind us….stupid kid shouldn’t be in the street anyways

Who cares if the bicyclist is back there….ride on the sidewalk stupid!

Who cares if the lady with the baby stroller is passing….I’m sure she isn’t attached to the munchkin…

Who cares …I’m tired and it is too much work to turn my head to look!  Is it nap time yet??

Who cares?

Who cares?!

I care dang it!!!   

LOL

~~~

But I will tell ya, the only fun part of this stupidity is when it happens to others. Then it is freaking hilarious….

Just don’t hit the Pink Truck….

~~~till we laugh again~~~

    I’m not sure what it is but extreme temperatures make the Stupids and Tempers bloom more. So does rain and snow. Sometimes mild breezes do too. But you’re right, usually the heat is what does it.

    The hot temps always remind me of a quote from Romeo and Juliet: “For now, these hot days, is the mad blood stirring.” Even Shakespeare knew that people get a little crazy in hot weather! 😉
