Patience, or Patients?

We found this note stuck in the store door last week. We were here, outside working and found it when we came in for the evening. I read it and could not figure out what the note was referring to. You see, I was assuming it was a legitimate "thank you". My sarcasm radar was not working.

In case you can't read it, it says:
Thank you for letting the tent be put in the RV 30 amp area! We really appreciate it. Especially the part of camping right next to us. Thank you so much!

I will sometimes let people in RV's have a tent next to them for their children. Not a big deal. But I had not checked in anyone with that particular situation. I reviewed all my registrations and came to realize that it was the occupants of a class B camper parked in the tent area. They chose the spot themselves and a tent camper arrived after them and took the spot next to them.

I am confused ....... did they assume that they would be in that spot and no one else would come along and camp in an open spot next to them? The tent campers were not loud and did not create any problems. If they had a complaint, why did they not tell me, as I was outside working in full view, easy to spot. Or, call the office. I had the phone in my pocket. I would have offered to make the tenters move if they were too loud or disturbing them in any way. They could have easily moved themselves. Instead they chose to take apart a registration packet and waste it on their "anonymous" letter of sarcasm. Nice. Bet their neighbors just love them where ever they go.

On a much brighter note, the sunflowers are in bloom.

They always look so happy, bobbing in the breeze.

This one does not want to wake up!

I love this one. It looks like it has an eye on the world!

I have not been myself for the past week or so. Cannot really define what is wrong, but I just feel bad. Fatigue, lack of energy, breathless. Like a wrung out dish rag. Limp. Decided to monitor my blood pressure and it is very low. I take medication for high blood pressure and confess that I have been known to regulate my own dosage. I am supposed to take one in the morning and one in the evening.

For quite some time I have been taking half the dosage because I noticed that my blood pressure was low and I felt crappy. Now, I feel crappy again. Yesterday my blood pressure was 88 /48. That was sitting down. I spent most of the day sleeping on and off. I fulfilled my nap resolution for the week. I will be seeing the doctor Wednesday. I have quit taking my medication altogether. My blood pressure medication, that is. With no meds on board, it is 102/62. An improvement, but I still have no energy.

No energy does not keep my mind from working over time. I am frustrated. I want to mow things and plant things and sew things, maybe even cook things. I am  not a good patient, because I am not patient. Patience is a virtue, so they say.

so the class B camper people camped in the tent area and were annoyed that a tenter camped next to them? well, as my brother likes to say: people are stupid.

Do see that doctor. You don't have strength to tap keys.
Beautiful sunflowers. Way ahead of ours. Must be a Missouri thing.

I love the sleepy sunflower. Yes, see the doctor. One of my work colleagues had trouble getting the right medicine combo.

Those campers are passive-aggressive a-holes. They didn't want a solution, they wanted to be self-righteous. Anonymously.

Some people you can't please no matter what. It has to be difficult dealing with so many obnoxious people. Hope you start feeling better soon.

joanne said...

silly campers, bet it makes you want to pull their hair out! I hope you get an answer about your bp, that really is quite low...are you anemic? I have that problem and one of the signs for me is anemia. take care.

SkippyMom said...

What a silly note. Do people just LOOK for reasons to be unhappy and make others miserable in the process? My gosh - they are outside, camping, ON VACATION and they had quiet neighbors in ::gasp:: a tent? The world, it's ending!!!! [how's that for sarcastic? giggle] Well, pish on them.

I am so used to low blood pressure [90/50] I don't think I get fatigued from it b/c it has always been that way. I wonder if you could be anemic? Now THAT wears me out, but after having it for so long I even got used to that drag. But 88/64 when it is not supposed to be that low? That's not good, huh? I wonder why they would put you on B/P meds if it was going to make it abnormally low? Doctors. Sigh.

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers that you are feeling better and more energetic soon. I do know that just isn't you to be so tired. Please take care, okay?

[And I have to agree with Ellen's brother. People *are* stupid. hee]

As ,your note leavers I'm sure their neighbors love them WHENEVER they go! Glad you are going to the doc, please keep us posted!

Pat said...

They leave a note and don't sign their name? What's the use of a note, then?

Glad you are going to the doctor and getting to the bottom of this not feeling well!
