Are you presenting to the sweatpants club of america?

Excuse the litany of pissed-offedness that follows. I drove home tonight, but the Interstate was closed, much to my surprise. I end up getting completely lost. I get back on the road I want, and then I get pulled over by a cop. I get the first moving violation in my whole life--the cop said I didn't signal a lane change. I'm reasonably sure I did, but what the hell ever. Then I decide to get home by going through the city. Naturally, I drive through what looks like an active murder scene. And finally, as a cherry on the sundae, I expect something to be in the mail when I get home, but it is not.

I'm going to use the next few hours to drink port until my cognitive faculties no longer function in the manner that the Lord intended.

Also, since I'm in a pissy mood, I might just wear a suit irregardless of whether it will be well received. If anyone is snotty about it, then a kick in the scrotum will be well received. Or at very least, it will be well given.

Sometimes I get adventurous and add jalapeños, but only if they're fresh. None of that pickled bullshit.

i have never tried jalapeños, but i do like mushrooms and onions, occasionally olives.

Well one of those douchebags called the office today, thinking we'd be closed for that Racist Italian/Spanish guy's holiday but nope, here I am, jerkface. And now you have to fucking speak to me so I can tell you how full of shit your case is.

i am so happy that i have you on retainer.

Ton of shit to do today, which means 2-3km of walking, its pissing down and cold as fuck out.

jet lag.

I'm coming down with a cold too. The last time I had the flu was 4 years ago and the last cold was 2 years ago. The only way I really get the flu/colds are if I'm around those who have super virulent colds such as:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
little children with flu/colds in general and any person with a bad cold in south east Asia. Unfortunately I've been around both a lot in the past week.frown.gif

Update to yesterday's post in this thread:

1. I packed a suit for the conference, which I am going to wear. BB suit with Charvet tie. I just feel too weird doing my job in something other than a suit.

2. As I reflect more, I'm pretty sure it's literally impossible for me to have done what the cop wrote me a ticket for doing. I think he just must have been jealous of my car and wanted to bring me down a peg. (The first sentence is truer than the second.)

Cops lying or exaggerating? Impossible!

Yeah, I really think he outright lied. He said that I came into his lane without signaling and forced him into another lane. But then didn't happen. After I got into my lane, I looked in my rearview mirror, and for no apparent reason, some guy a fair bit behind me makes a quick lane change to the left. I wondered why the hell he was doing that--it didn't even occur to me that I made him do that. (Again, because he's in my rearview mirror a fair bit behind me.) Then he turns on his lights and pulls me over. He wasn't even close to having to make that lane change. Ugh.

I'm not sure how I feel about this - but yesterday at arraignment (where criminal defendants are called into court to enter a plea of not guilty to proceed to trial) there were a group of about 10 incarcerated defendants (because they couldn't make bail) who were arraigned by video conference from the Jail to the Courthouse. The courtroom was also occupied by about a half dozen private defense attorneys (myself included) and about 30-40 criminal defendants who were in the back of the courtroom for arraignment as well. I believe all the incarcerated defendants were represented by the public defender's office. Unfortunately, the PDs rarely get out to the prison ahead of arraignment to explain what's going to happen, which is a big problem in my opinion with the use of video conferencing. One defendant in particular was confused about what was happening and didn't understand why the PD was entering a plea for him (it's not clear if he understood it was a not guilty plea, or he may have mistakenly thought it was a guilty plea being entered without his knowledge or consent). He gets very agitated and starts yelling at the video conferencing camera. The Judge and the private attorneys can all see this on the big screen tv that is broadcasting the jail side of the video conference. The guards come in and remove the other 9 incarcerated defendants, then come back and strong arm the agitated guy out of the screen. So it's just an image of an empty jail room on the TV now, but the audio is still live, and for everyone to hear there proceeds an epic beatdown of this putz, complete with the sound of a Foley artist punching cantaloupes with baseball bats.

back at work.

The asshole i set a bailiff on tries to have his lawyer take care of it. This was to be expected, but how stupid are you to have him first tell the bailiff that he didnt receive the money, and then when confronted with evidence lie about the purpose of the payment.

This can be disproven as well, but it just takes time and he is trying to either stall of weasel his way out of it.

I feel like pulling a Stewie and have the guy beaten up until he bleeds enough for the blood bank to refund my money. Sadly, the legal system will have to take care of it...
