Ready people? Sometimes life sucks and isn’t fair. This may be especially true when there is a natural disaster that causes power outages for hundreds of thousands of people.
So, while you’re complaining about how hard it is to get a cup of coffee today, following the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, remember how much of a douche you are.
Chill out. Some people lost their homes or lives. Your super inconvenience of not having power or being able to get into Starbucks will be over soon.
Some guy at a gas station literally walked in and said, “Ugh the gas is pumping so slow. Why don’t you have more employees in here?”
Gordy Frack waited 30 minutes Tuesday morning to get an essential commodity – hot, black coffee.
“It was worth it,” Frack said after his wait to get two cups of joe at the Wawa on E. Broad Street and Stefko Boulevard in Bethlehem. “I don’t think I have anywhere else to go today.”
Frack, who lives in the 900 block of Spring Street, lost power at about 9 p.m. Monday and he isn’t sure when it will come back. He said other than losing power, and missing work, the worst part of the storm was the long wait for coffee.
“We made it to halftime (of Monday Night Football),” Frack said. “It all went south from there.”
God damn it I had to wait for coffee!!!!! I hate when my foosball gets interrupted.
Big lines for daily essentials awaited people at shops with power. The Wawa on Broad and Stefko had a line of cars waiting to get into the parking lot, while the Bottom Dollar grocer next door was deserted. Most customers of the Wawa though, found the longest line was for coffee. People picking up other needs, like milk and donuts, flowed in and out of the store.
At the 7-Eleven on E. Broad Street in Bethlehem the line was shorter than the Wawa’s, but overwhelmed the available coffee pots. Customers were told to just put their cups under the coffee makers’ drips.
“Do you have any decaf,” one woman asked a 7-Eleven employee.
“We don’t have time for decaf,” the employee said. SOURCE: The Morning Call
I’m not saying that these people don’t need to go out and get coffee or even to head to work if necessary. I am saying they shouldn’t complain.
Why do we all love to complain? Sometimes life is going to be crappy and slow. Sometimes you’re going to have to wait in line and deal with asslaughers. Be happy you don’t have a tree on your car.
Now, off to the bar. ;)
