I said Mayo Dammit
It's Friday. You know, it's getting to the point where it isn't really all that exciting anymore. It used to be yeah, Friday, no work for two days. Now it's whoa, it's Friday, another week wasted. Christmas is now 20 days away. I'm about 90% done with my Christmas shopping already. That's pretty much unheard of for me. I usually wait until the days at least get into the twenties before I start that whole shopping thing. When you are pressed for time it makes the buying decision a whole hell of a lot easier. When you hear "the store will be closing in 15 minutes and reopen the day after Christmas" then it's fucking go time! Let's see, mom could use a toenail manicure set, sure. Oh, Ishtar on DVD for only 9.99. Lets see, I'm sure Tommy lost the Yo-Yo I got him last year, he can have a red one this year. So you see, I've lost the last minute shopper gifts this year and actually put some thought into what I was buying. Fuck, I hope I don't set a precedent here.
Is it just me or is the news getting more fucked up? Actually it isn't the news, it's the stupid bastards that the news is reporting on. A woman in Texas ran over the manager of Mc Donald's because she couldn't get Mayo on her cheeseburger. What the fuck did she think she was at Burger King? If you want it your way take your ass to the BK. Jenkins tried to placate her by offering a cheeseburger with mayonnaise, but Nolan continued to make demands until Jenkins finally called police. When she went outside to write down Nolan's license plate number, Nolan ran her over, breaking her pelvis. Nolan testified that she was putting ketchup on her cheeseburger when she accidentally struck Jenkins. She was putting ketchup on her cheeseburger huh? I thought she wanted fucking Mayo on it. You know, I've said it before and I'll say it again. Customers suck. This is nothing more that concrete evidence of that. I've often said you can't please them, and here is a golden example.
