Yesterday it was bill day & if you have kept up with my
bill day post you know it’s a all day thing with us, cause we
go to 2 different counties nowhere close together to pay bills.
Well everything was going as normal for us & yes it was HOT
up in the 90’s & we were doing our last bit of shopping for
the day & I wanted to check on the price for the gravel too.
We went to Mannard’s & checked to see if they had any, &
when I seen they did I asked how much it was & they told
me & when I heard how much I was thrilled at the price.
So I got me (20) bgs, 10 of each & you WOULD THINK you
could get some help with that kind of stuff but no- none
I’m 65 yrs old & pretty tough with doing things like this.
But yea ok, so 95 degrees & no 1 in sight & I loaded 20
bgs of gravel on 2 flat carts & pushed each 1 to the cash
out desk & by the time I got there here comes the help.
I was so hot, hubby (77 yrs old) told me I was as red as
an apple when I got back with the 2nd cart of gravel &
I looked like I was fixing to pass out, well I would think
so after loading 20 bgs of gravel in less than 30 mins
with NO HELP wouldn’t you? but I did it by MYSELF.
Thank GOD I won’t be doing THAT any time soon again
cause there is no help to rely on these days with stuff
like that & it’s a damn shame things are like they are.
But here is the deal, when a 65 year old person can
out work a 45 year old person SOMETHING IS WRONG
cause after we took the gravel to where it needed to be
the person I’m doing the pond for, I had HIM unload it
& after he was done he comes off with I’m beat OMG!
He didn’t load 2 carts & push them as far as I had to
in 95+ heat so as far as help goes there is none these
days, So when you have to have help, bring it with you.
