As the weather gets warmer two things seem to happen to the good inhabitants of Toronto. One is that they get kinder and the second is that they seem to be a little more impatient. Maybe because it’s so nice out and they have a million things to do in the course of a day before it becomes cold and terrible again at any moment? Either way, here’s a situation where you see both.

At the grocery store, and a very impatient man was giving a poor cashier a very hard time over a $.50 coupon that wouldn’t scan through. She was trying very hard and he wasn’t having it. A really nice young woman in front of me sort of stepped in to try to mediate the situation. I only got a quick clip of things, but it was a nice gesture for her to get involved and try to smooth things over. Being a cashier is no fun, and this was actually ery friendly and working hard.

and as per usual on Wednesdays – Things my 6 Year Old Student Said to me – May 6th

Ugggggh. Laffy Taffy? Disgusting. Colored Smencils? Stupid. Girls? I don’t understand them!! They’re so annoying!! This was the worst day of my life.”

Wow. It usually takes a few more years to come to those conclusions, especially the laffy taffy one. Such drama.

ps – If you’re in Nova Scotia, I’m coming for you. Tomorrow. I’m playing Friday night at the Parragon ( used to be the Marquee) with David Myles. Come come come.
