Differences in Mentality

Just so you understand differences in mentality. I’ve been telling people that I’m doing a garage sale this weekend. Canadians invariably react with a scared, “did you apply for a permit ahead of time? Are you sure you have the right paperwork? Did you pay the fee?”

After listening to these stories about paperwork and fees, I started bugging people in my HOA about all this stuff. They looked at me dimly and suggested I post a notice about the sale on Facebook. There is no paperwork or fees.

By the way, congratulations to the readers in Quebec for having outdoor dining again! You could have had it this whole time, like we did, but I guess you didn’t submit the paperwork on time.
