>A guy at my old office called this type of weather “stabbing weather.” Because it was so hot and no one had air conditioning (in San Francisco), a person’s anger would boil over more easily than usual. Well, I have air and I still feel pissed off. It usually happens when I’m in my car. I hate driving. I hated it in San Francisco because there were just too many damn people. Now, not only are there sometimes too many damn people, but these people just don’t get going fast enough when the light turns green.
I know I’ve been touchy lately. It’s probably because I have to deal with this crazy lawsuit. I was rear ended a few years ago while driving on the Bay Bridge. Luckily, it wasn’t major, but I did get a pretty good case of whiplash. To this day my neck and shoulder are a bit screwed up. It was one of those things were I was slowing down for stopped traffic and the lady in the mini-van behind me wasn’t paying attention. I glanced into my rearview mirror and watched her run into me. She wasn’t looking at the traffic in front of her until too late.
It freaked me out pretty good. I had a tough time driving for a few days. Basically, her insurance company is being difficult about paying the medical bills. Now I have to go give a deposition, which I’ve never done before, take time off from my job, which I just started, and I really just don’t want to deal with it. But, the bills need to get paid, and I’m not going to pay for them. I’m not looking to get rich. I just want all my bills paid and I want to be reimbursed for the few days of work I missed.
I’ll be happy when this month is over. I’m sick of it already and it’s only the 2nd.
>Yeah, but if it was humid…wait, it is humid there. I would be angry too.
>Ooh, you’re getting deposed. Remember the three magic words: “I don’t know.” And I’m with you on the heat.

>”I don’t know.” I’ll say it just like Ronald Reagan did in the Iran Contra hearings.
