Sorry I'm totally catching up on like a month, however the one that drives me crazy is when people put the paper down on the toilet in the bathroom and leave it there.

I agree there are a few people whose disappearance would make the world a better place. I drive a sports car, and I need only one parking spot.

People driving slow in the left lane drive me insane.

It’s a passing lane!

Also, didn’t know they were called “buggies” in GA. It’s a good name.

Amen to the cart returns. My biggest thing is when people don’t have tags or license plates for handicapped parking but park there because their flippin lazy!!! No I’m not judging people with tags who don’t “look” deserving etc. Just the people who are lazy without tags. Saw it happen today bc someone wanted to watch a kid soccer game closer. 🤬

I recommend two books by Helen Chappelle "The Oysterback Tales" and "Oysterback Spoken Here." Oysterback is a mythical and possibly legendary small town on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

People who dump their pets by the side of the highway. They would be vastly improved by death.

Corey, what's the name of that music in the background.

It’s some folksy tune from the Spotify For Podcasters app. Can’t remember which one cause I picked it at random, but the next time it comes up I’ll let you know!

So glad you’re feeling better! POA was wonderful this week, as always. My niece and I made sweet potato pie a few years back. It was not good. I will try your Granny’s recipe and see if it turns out better. It’s cool to hear you read from the book because as I read it, I could hear yours and Trae’s voices in the different chapters. It is laugh out loud funny and poignant all at once. Please always keep doing what you’re doing. You are a gift to this world. Happy and safe travels! Also, would you please break it to your sister that she already is a celebrity because she has fans. I know because I am one of them.!

Anyone who gets their MF guitar out on an airplane. Instant ejection from the side door, no parachute IMO.

You nailed it with the shopping carts. I honestly believe you can tell everything you need to know about a person by what they do with an empty shopping cart (“Buggy” to those of us from the South.)

People who jump in front of you in line. This week I had an appt at an Orthopedic Surgery office as soon as they opened. The chairs in the check in area are not close to the checkin desk. I was seated - mind you this is a place where people have injuries and may not be able to stand for long periods of time - some able bodied 40 something year old saunters in and stands in front of the checkin desks. When an attendant arrived and announced she would help the first person I line, the lady went right up to the desk. I know she heard me say “I was here first” - twice I said it as I approached the desk. She just replied “well, you weren’t in line”. After she signed in and walked away I said “I know you are not ashamed of yourself, but you should be”. I also told the attendant I was disappointed that she did not make the lady step aside.

I work at a grocery store. Most of our customers are great about their cart return. Mostly find them in the Handicap parking spots.

Love that you call shopping carts "buggies"! I grew up in Virginia countryside and never heard that one!

Eric Bobo percussionist from Cypress Hill asked for book recommendations. I suggested yours. He replied "Sounds interesting"

Loved the book! Why did y'all leave Virginia out of your Southern states section?

We were calculated in what we left out so that we could do a sequel!
