oh the sounds

Good morning everyone.....   I'm busy doing one of those things that I love to do (NOT).  I'm sitting at the car dealership, in the service department, waiting to have a bulb replaced on the headlight of my vehicle.   

My should be simple to pull the hood, grab a bulb and replace the thing.   A total of 5 to 10 minutes at the would think!   

I'm now going on 45 minutes of waiting!   I suppose I should have paid more attention to the clue.... When the service guy handed me a vibrating device to let me know when my car would be finished.   Second clue is...they offered me a bag of popcorn as I walked into the waiting room!  After all...they do want their  customers to be happy.  

To the left of me, there is a big conversation on politics taking place... I best not join in right now....!!!!!!

Behind me, the topic of nail salons is gaining some big rants about the service and of course... The foreign language.   

In front of me, is a service guy doing his best to encourage his customer to replace the filter in his (almost new) car!  

Oh,  the sounds of chatteting are all around me and yet... I can STILL, somehow write a post.  

I'm patiently waiting for my buzzer to go off.... Guess I'll just listen and people watch, for a few more minutes!!!

Have a good weekend.... Y'all.

I am not a fan of waiting either!

Glad you are able to post while you wait. And listen to some interesting conversation. I guess it took so long because they are busy. We just had to replace a tail light ourselves

Ha! people watching is fun...
it is a WASHBOWL...isn't it.
Immediately, I'm checking to see-- do I say those things? Do I sound like that? Am I being impatient?
Little moments like that pack a big whollop don't they,Shug?

Hope you got the bulb changed out...!
enjoy your weekend.

People watching is fun and the conversations can be really interesting! It's hard for me not to enter into the conversations when it's about politics and they are bashing my side. lol!
Enjoy your Sunday!

Hurry Up and Wait... We live by that, don't we? Makes me mad that they make cars these days which take special equipment just to change a bulb... Crazy to have to take your car in for service JUST for that, isn't it??? GADS....Bet it cost you some muh-lah also!!!!!

We have been busy this week working on our new online Food Journals (My Fitness Pal) and syncing it with our new exercise gadget (FITBIT).... Amazing how great both of these apps are. You probably saw my Saturday FB post about them.

Cars have gotten so complicated now we can't even change a stupid bulb. Sorry you had to wait, but you made good use of your time. Have a blessed week dear Shug!

I always take my device to read, and if they would only turn off the TV! Why do they assume everyone wants to hear that. I don't watch those stations at home and they NEVER have on Rush or Fox. The last time I was in there the talking heads were discussing female incontinence and there I was sitting with 7 guys waiting for their cars.
I do enjoy the coffee and an occasional doughnut...if there are any left after the service guys keep sneakin' in there to take them. :D
We gals need to know more about our vehicles. Of course they used to be more simple. Oh well. Later.....
