Good things on TV i hope or a good book with you..
Me: Hey, it looks like someone did a peepahs on my bedsheets.
Genevieve: Yeah sure does that was Manfredi of ant who got in the winda and made a peepahs.
Me: Are you telling the truth? Was it really Manfredi of ant who did it?
Genevieve: Sure was hope you're not mad at Manfredi though it's just the kind of thing an ant does betimes.
Me: No, I am not mad at Manfredi. That's what ants do betimes.
Put my basil plants outside yesterday to get a little sun and forgot to bring them in. Now they are dead. RIP little plants.
Shopping malls. I received a $50 Sears gift card for Christmas & I went to redeem it today. Didn't see anything that I liked at Sears so I went to the rest of the mall. Between the loud muzak coming from Hollister & the reeky "smell good" stuff coming from A & F, the only thing that I got was a headache. Either that or one of the guys working at a kiosk that sprayed something on me that smelled like BO & it took everything that I had not to break his nose. I came home & the first thing that I had to do was get in the shower. to get the smell off of me.
Had to take my dog out for his evening pis, which took two attempts due to... you guessed it fireworks.
Both went something like this "pee!, pee!, pee!, pee god dammit! pee!..." as he was trying to run home.
I just got back from a long road trip to from Brooklyn to Key West Florida. My wife wanted to stop in Orlando on the way back to go to Sea World.
Sea World itself was actually awesome, surprisingly good food (I ate salads but even the salads were great), rode the roller coasters, and sea animals are awesome.
But what pisses me off, or actually makes me really sad:
the amount of morbid obesity. there must have been at least 100 morbidly obese people on mobility scooters throughout the park... and well...hundreds of other morbidly obese throughout the park. Often times whole families from kids to grandparents all obese.
my estimation is that the obese consisted of about 98% americans.
we were watching the Killer Whale show at shamu stadium and sitting in the "splash zone". there are two rows of seating for "handicap companions" in front of a large platform to where wheelchairs and mobility scooters can be parked. The whole area was crammed with mobility scooters and about two people in wheelchairs.
the show was about to start and the two rows of "handicap companions" was sparingly filled (sadly with mostly obese people who were with their handicapped companions). and the rest of the stadium was filled to the brim.
a Indian family walks in and politely asks if they can sit in the handicap companion seats... and the people in the scooters and their companions start to loudly berate the Indian family because "THOSE SEATS ARE FOR HANDICAPPED COMPANIONS ONLY!"
My wife looks back and whispers to me:
"Those people on scooters aren't even really handicapped... they're just too fat to walk"
I kind of shush my wife and realize that she's totally right. Its not like those people on scooters are war veterans with missing limbs, they are handicapped because they are morbidly obese which is 95% of the time because of their own vices.
Come on, Lawrence. When one is morbidly obese because one is depressed and not willing to do anything about it other than eat, one has to find some way to feel special.
Guys whining about sale purchases not being shipped within a day or two of ordering.
I hear ya, and it's so disappointing, because sometimes I think it's 1) by choice and b) they then cling to it because it gets them accommodations that they wouldn't ordinarily get. It's like - "respect me because I'm disabled".
Lawrence your wife speaks the truth.
I have a fake Handicapped tag. I haven't used it yet, because I purposefully park far away from others so they don't damage my Jag-you-are. But it's stupid easy to get one, at least in PA. I also have a media badge and a mortuary sticker. I will admit I've used the media badge in the past.
I saw a Jaguar commercial today and they do NOT pronounce it "Jag-you-are" just fyi.
Also, I know a few people that have gotten hundreds of dollars of tickets in using fake handicap placards. bewarez.
welcome to my life in Florida. they also drive those fucking things without regard to anyone else's personal space and safety, as well exhibit the same driving and handicapped-parking habits with their automobiles. i honestly believe that the state should stop showing these fat fucks less consideration, since they don't have any kind of consideration for others themselves.
i think i've ranted about this very topic in this thread in the past
(edit: also, lol at the irony of all of them going to go see a show about a whale)
They also drive them recklessly in grocery stores.
Just a couple days ago I saw an obese lady on a scooter very nearly knock down a display of wine bottles. She hit the display and the bottles shook, but they did not crash to the floor.
