Great Start to the Day

Our apartment complex is one of those gated communities. I know they have the gates so that we are "more secure". How am I supposed to feel secure when I've seen people jump the gate and let their friends in or drive through the gate right behind someone who lives here?

This morning as I was taking Damien to work the best thing happened. We were sitting waiting for the exit gate to open when we saw TWO cars sneak in behind someone entering the complex. The "resident" car stopped and out stepped one of the apartment managers. She wagged her finger at them and gave them both a talking to. That was the wrong car to follow in I would say!

Two weeks ago I was talking to a woman from the Atlanta area about getting around town and how confusing it is because there are no main roads. She told me that although she has grown up here, she uses a GP System to get around. It took me a few moments to realize that she was referring to her GPS.

The differences from Western talk to Southern talk are manifesting themselves everywhere.
