Square & Bright: Cars So Bright

Becky’s chosen a cheery topic for her April Squares challenge: anything bright, however you interpret it!

Earlier today, we took a walk and I noticed my neighbor, Gail, had been out for a spin in her red Mustang – her “lady toy” – because it was sitting in the driveway.

My own car is in our driveway (we only have a one-car garage), and today, looking at the sun reflected on the hood, I saw not one, but TWO suns! How did that happen?!

On a sadder note, our fitness director quit, and her last day was Tuesday. Several residents from our community lined the street in front of the gatehouse to say good-bye. Although she was crying (her mood wasn’t bright and sunny), her car certainly is – mustard yellow?

    • She didn’t say, but everyone I talked to speculated that it was because they never replaced the other fitness person (who left last April to move to Wisconsin) and consequently, she had a lot of work piled on her. I think she was led to believe that once the pandemic eased, they would hire a second fitness instructor. But that’s the employers’ mindset: save money no matter how much extra work it causes others! She was very sad to leave; she could hardly talk about it without crying!

      • oh bless her, that is so sad when you have to leave because of the situation. Sounds like a case for constructive dismissal for her to explore

      • We don’t have anything like “constructive dismissal” here in the States. Our laws mostly favor employers and corporations. Workers really have few guaranteed benefits.

      • oh that’s not so good.

        Do hope she found something positive to move onto. At least you were there to wave her goodbye, so she’ll know how much she is missed
