Free time makes for discontent

Boredom is the root of all evil.
Sorry, I haven't reflected upon realities beyond my own trivialities, but the blog is a reflection of my own being and I'm a dull person.
Ever notice that people with too much free time make their lives unnecessarily complicated?
Anyways, I had Friday off from work so we could go to Great Wolf Lodge to celebrate my spouse's 40th year of existence. The kids were off, so we worked the day off from our ends, accordingly.
Having the Passat available to take to Tire Discounters for the regular rotation, I scheduled an appointment for Friday morning at 9am. The car's tire rotation taking 90+ minutes is unacceptable in my opinion. I tweeted about it and the store manager called me after I got home. I told him his store sucked. I had too much free time while waiting, thus Tire Discounters is on my Enemy List, according to my family.

The day wasn't ruined, but it started bad. I was hungry by the time I got home, and we had stuff to pack. Around 11am, I called Little Caesar's for the standard Pep, Cheese & Crazy Bread order. They said it would be ready in 10-15 minutes. I got there in 9 minutes and they APOLOGIZED that I would have to wait and offered me a FREE ORDER OF ADDITIONAL CRAZY BREAD.
Seriously, I got there early and they made it seem like it was their fault I had to wait.
I love my local Little Caesar's!

I have 3 kids. I have free time, but my mind is usually scattered on the various things that interest me, like debt management.
I don't do debt management when I'm on public access Wi-Fi, so I diverge to the social media elements of time consumption. I don't do FB, except to keep updated on my friend with Gastroparesis. My friend hasn't been well, and she had been going through a particularly rough stretch of late. Had a sour mood only to get anxious. Too much free time is a bad thing. Thankfully, we were very busy at the water park. By the time I had a chance to check FB again, my friend was doing much better.
I donated plasma on Thursday and on Sunday. I don't do FB when I'm killing my hour there. I usually listen to iHeart Radio and catch up on world news. A crazy woman tried to donate when I was there on Sunday, she had to escorted away by police. She lost the chance to make an easy $50 by being offended when she was asked if the child she had with her was sent to an empty car.
