Kvick Kvetches

Here are a few irritating things for you to think about…

At some restaurants it’s very hard to get a reservation. That reminded me of something Yogi Berra is reported to have said: “The place is so busy that no one goes there any more.”

How come every time I walk by my favourite shoe shine stand the guy gives me a big cheery hello and then immediately looks down at my shoes as if to say: “Schmuck… you need a shine.”

In case you haven’t noticed, kids don’t wear watches anymore… That’s because the time is always on their iPod or cell phone.

Thank goodness for computerized cash registers! There was a time when cashiers could actually calculate change in their heads – can you believe it? “So let’s see… the total is $17.49 and the guy gave me $21.49… now what?” Or better yet – they look at you and say: “You gave me too much.”

Birth announcements are interesting. Think about the ones that include something like “…and excited big brother is Schlomo.” I’m sure he’s excited!

And finally, I’m told there’s a new toy on the market for disgruntled kids and it’s called “Kvetch–a–Sketch.”
