      Dear Tim Horton's line up people,

      First of all the ****ing queue isn't that big to begin with, move the **** forward so people can get in the door.

      Secondly, why is there always some jackass male that comes in and feels the need to ask the female in front of him "is this where the line starts?" No retard, we're working backwards from the till to the door today *******.

      Then the creepy older lady says "just let me hit that" as she presses the button so I can process my debit card. It was all I could do not to laugh.

      Yeah well some of our locals are just numptys. Actually I blame the local University whose students flood the place and stand there with 6 feet between each other with their heads down staring at their phone. Then when the cashier says "can I help who's next?" they look like a god damn deer stunned in headlights with no idea where they are. "Ummmmmmmmmmmm..... uhhhhhhh...... I will have ummmm..........."

      This slows the process greatly. We get young students from all over the province and they all seem to drive like morons and are generally lacking the most basic of skills. But hey, they're smart cause they're in University right?

      Penn State alums/students:

      Do they make you sign some sort of commitment to be the worst drivers in the universe upon being accepted to that place? Some dude (when I say dude, he was actually like 50-60) in a brand new MKZ almost took my front end off on my way to Wawa, sure enough PSU plate. He just pulled out across 2 lanes of traffic, I didn't even see him look. Any time I am cut off, nearly hit, surprised by a stupid action with no blinkers, subjected to random highway hard braking, epic lane wandering, or see any other blatantly dangerous bad driving behavior, it is perpetuated by someone with at least one dumbass paw print sticker on the back of their car. There's also a direct correlation between the number of PSU-related stickers/license plates and the level of asshattery being committed.
      I wish I could say I was the only person who noticed this, but I know several people in real life who've noticed the same thing I do know people who've managed to escape Happy Valley as great drivers, so I'm puzzled. But mostly annoyed.

      I cringe every time I hear that. (Because grammar police.)

      But seriously, you've been in this fast-food joint at least a hundred times, and you probably order the same thing every time. Why are you staring at the menu on the wall?

      Dear Girl,

      Normally I would not have gone that far out of my way to help you, as it is obvious you are dumb as a post. Thankfully, you realized that your brain was probably not your greatest asset at this point in your life. Your shirt was thin, your boobs were big, your bra was in a drawer somewhere and your left nipple was pierced. So of course I would be happy to help you. However, next time leave the boyfriend in the hall until we are done.

      I have some incredibly lazy co-workers. One finished up the roll of paper towels only to leave the cardboard roll laying on the counter in the kitchen at the office. It must've been too brutal of a 10 foot walk to the closet to grab a fresh roll. Oh, but they must be good workers with that sort of ethic.

      My point? Sex makes headlines, but the majority of what we'd call modern day 'slaves' are in agriculture, and there are far more of them than we think.
      I feel like there are human trafficking busts every quarter or so on the news and they're always based in Asian-owned nail salons or buffets.

      Nobody knows everything, but everybody should have a clear idea of what they don't know, a healthy respect for the expertise and experience of others, and the mental flexibility to change your opinions if there's a good reason to. Otherwise, you're just a smartass who can't defend his opinions.

      Which is another rant, come to think of it.

      My cracked ribs took a while to heal. 3-4 weeks I think. I did drive a par-4 green the day after the accident though lol.

      My shift linkage came apart on me yesterday, and not having a low profile jack for my car caused me to take it to a shop that I used to work at.

      Dropped it off at 2pm, they closed at 7pm and hadn't pushed it in to look at it.
      Went to check at 9pm to see if they moved it inside because it's in a terrible spot, and it's sitting outside unlocked.

      They left a lowered integra on polished wheels with a ton of aftermarket stereo equipment sit unlocked in their parking lot. They have my only set of keys. What the ****.
      They opened at 7am, so it's 75 minutes into their work day and they still haven't called to say what they've found to be wrong with it.

      I'm gonna have a nice talk with the DM since the store manager is my former boss, and the reason I left the shop in the first place. Unfortunately I was desperate to get it fixed.
      It's also possible that my car was towed last night, since the parking lot is roam towed as it's right next to a night club. I should check into that.

      ****ity **** ****! My Pelikan fountain pen my brother brought me from West Germany when I was in high school has finally died. I've written almost every day with it for 23 years. Sure the gold had worn from the nib and the lapis colored plastic had turned slightly greenish from ink... I love this pen. And now an o-ring failed on the fill pump, dumping ink all over my portfolio and the not very important papers in it ( my gas bill... so what).

      ****.

      I guess I can fix it. Maybe I should break out the Mont Blanc that I always feel weird about using. Sorta 90's dickish. Not when it is a fountain pen I suppose. No poser.
