Yep...It's the End of the World

Is it just me or does anyone else gets annoyed by toast scraping?

I was at Cracker Barrel the other morning and this fellow beside me was applying a very thin and even coat of butter to his well cooked toast. He was very fastidious doing this all the while making this annoying scraping sound.

It gave me the urge for a well placed liver punch but I decided to be nice. The old fart was obviously enjoying his toast scraping and I figured someone two tables down from me was annoyed by something I was doing.

We got 4 inches of snow last night so you know what that means…oatmeal for breakfast and a general state of emergency for this southern town. All the schools are closed and the local TV stations have multiple reporters on live cams scraping their feet on streets to show us just how slick they are.

Since I call the shots at my office I have instituted “Operation end of the world” whereby we forward the phone extensions to our cell phones and fire up the instant messenger and work from home. This also calls for me to put on my rarely used Fire Marshall green reflective vest since this is an emergency situation.

I just find things like toast scraping fascinating. An insight into the person's character.

I wonder, if it really were the end of the world, if toast scraping would bother you so much.......

I guess it's to be expected, you being a little cranky.
You did just get back from the island.

A week up here will toughen you up. 4 inches of snow will be a cake walk.

So, can I pencil you in for next February?

I don't mind the scraping I just hate the toast crumbs in the butter. I hate that.

We had snow too!

Call me crazy, but I love the sound of scraping toast. My mom has eaten peanutbutter toast every day of her life for as long as I can remember. It brings back memories of home.
