    ... so he wrote about how dumb everyone who serves him is. It's just amazing how this happens to him every single time:

    Will you be going to the game?


    Will you be going to the game? I thought I heard you say yes.

    Geez, talk about phoning it in. Maybe if he wasn't speaking into people's belly buttons they'd hear him. Either way ... WE DON'T CARE!

    Albom is way too young to be writing "Grumpy Old Guy" columns.

    I think Albom is a douche and that column was totally mailed in. But...I agree with him.

    This was a pretty good Mitch Albom column, even if nobody died -- only got annoyed.

    Why should a barista or flight attendant get facts straight when he made a career of missing the truth?

    He is right though. Just tonight, I call a local place to order dinner. Hi, is that delivery or pickup? Delivery, I say. What would you like? I give the order. Then she says, that's pickup, right? No, delivery, just like I said before. This happens time after time, at stores, restaurants, etc. No one listens anymore. I find it even happening at work when I tell someone something. That's why I mostly send instructions electronically so the message is right there on the screen.
