Pet peeves drive me bonkers. One of my pet peeves, which seems to have become standard practice, is to not call me back. This is after the person has said I would get a callback. It's even more irritating coming from a businessperson. I get it. Other people value their time more than mine. They don't want to be bothered with setting up a system to follow through. Even worse, they don't mind when they don't keep their word.

As we prepare for this Memorial Day on Monday, May 28, let us be mindful of the reason why we set aside a day to honor all heroes who have gone before us.
Both moms and law enforcement are honored in May. Mother's Day was on May 13. Law Enforcement Memorial Day was May 15. Besides having a common, celebratory month, both mothers and police officers deserve respect for their time and trouble. I'm sure many of us can remember a time when Mom said, "No, you can't have that" on "No, you can't do that." Moms reign because they make tough decisions with love and don't shy away from what's needed to help develop their children into better people. Moms tend to put others first.

There's a YouTube video about how observant people are. A man approaches different strangers, points to his map, and asks if they know where Trinity Church is.

The stranger is too busy concentrating on Trinity Church.
