Bad moods abound in the Sunshine State

I spent the long weekend visiting family in Florida. I expected the heat, humidity, and rain. I did not expect the nasty attitudes. I'm not saying that all residents of the Sunshine State lack a sunny disposition. Just a large amount of the population of Palm Beach County.

  • A young woman that I spoke with while waiting on line told me that someone keyed her car the day before. The reason- she got a parking spot at the mall that the keyer had no chance of getting.
  • People, especially older people, who would rather ram their shopping cart into someone than say "excuse me"
  • A woman looked at me like I had 3 heads when I said "pardon me" as I scooted by her at the grocery store
