The power of social media

I had one of the most stressful upsetting things happen to me yesterday. My insurance has this thing where they will give you free rides to the doctor. Sweet! I tried them for the first time yesterday and of course right off the bat it was weird, a regular prius picks me up, They guys insist on "helping me" by grabbing my arm....anyways when we get there he says I need to right down my social which sends red flags up me like no other and I ask why? Why do you need it but he keeps insisting saying its protocol and then doesn't let me out of the car. So I give it to him what do I know. He then grabs me holding me by the way insisting he is helping and then awkwardly tries to grab my stuff out of the car.

PSA: MOST LIKELY YOU ARE NOT HELPING A DISABLED PERSON IF YOU THINK YOU ARE HELPING YOU ARE HURTING. I KNOW MY BODY HOW IT WORKS AND WHAT I CAN AND CAN'T DO, IF WE EVER NEED HELP WE KNOW HOW TO ASK FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!


anyways I go about my day got a lot done and the ride home comes, when we reach the house I ask if they need a number and he says no.


Enter me in Panic mode, Two calls to my insurance and a complaint filed and a phone call to me crying to my mom later, they finally have me call the cab company where he basically said the guy didn't know english meant your cell number you are huge idiot please have your insurance not call here, when I called the insurance again to tell them that the all but supportive insurance the girl I get this time says "well I make the mistake all the time I say address when I mean phone number"

It still seems sketchy to me though like I asked him several times are you sure you need this number, why do you need this number. Also I get that english is hard but I feel like phones are such a huge part of our world that its a word we use a lot......ET knows it, My Students who only says 5 words knows it, I don't know.......


I then wanted to scream (have you ever just screamed at the top of your lungs very Andrew Garfield from never let me go? Let me tell you it feels amazing) So I went and got ice cream instead and the sweet ice cream man not only gave me a ton of samples and talked to me for a good hour he gave me the workers discount. He has a special place in heaven that man.


Then I came home and watched HIMYM the one where Barney proposes with a magic trick and I totes picked up on some magic nerdiness I never noticed before....So ready for the magic castle.....

Which leads me to that fact that a certain date to there was liking all my stuff on facebook and then we texted a bit.

Its amazing how just someone liking you post on facebook can make you feel, like that simple act just made me smile. Or the guy I like in Nashville who is way out of my league when he does it! Once after a bad date he told me to keep going that my prince was out there!!!! Man huge silver lining!!

Sadly social media and texting can be a real bummer in dating but in moments like these it makes it a little better.

Plus with every like I am closer to meeting this guy I am starting to really like and oh yeah the magic castle.

I'm running off of no sleep today and have a million fun things to do but I got this and if I even start to get bummed i am going to think magical thoughts!
