- Have you ever noticed that the bigger the truck a person drives, the less likely the driver is to be courteous? It's like they have the mindset that because they could probably drive over your puny little car, they don't have to be nice to you. Like the guy taking a left at a light that is pulled way past the white line you're supposed to stop at. He can't possibly take a left until that light changes to green, but he's going to make certain you can't see around his big ass to take a right on red. These are the people that take a turn from the middle lane without a turn signal, cause they know you will yield for them rather than risk totally YOUR car. Then there's the guy at work that insists on parking his truck in the compact spaces in the front row. He will make sure that he is completely blocking the sidewalk so he can fit inside the space just to save himself from having to walk an extra 20 feet parking in the spaces on the other side of the lot. Do you know what I think? The bigger the truck the smaller the penis of the driver.
- We are installing a new system at work that requires a lot of extra equipment in our server room. Because of this, we also had to upgrade to a much bigger air conditioning unit in that room. We hired outside electricians to wire a new outlet, then have had at least 3 of our technicians trying to install this new unit for days. Each one is worse than the next, including the assistant manager of the Service Department. They can't seem to figure it out. Did I mention that I work for an HVAC company? This is what these people do for living! My favorite line I over heard today: "We're going to have to call the manufacturer. The circuit board looks like you could launch a rocket ship from it!". And they wonder why the rest of the company thinks they are idiots.
- One of my nieces texted me a couple of weeks ago to ask me what kind of meat corned beef is. Okay, I have to admit that I recently had to look up where pastrami comes from. But corned beef? Beef is in the title of it. It's not even as confusing as Chicken of the Sea tuna. If I start calling her Jessica Simpson she might kick my ass, lol.
- I recently celebrated 5 months sober. I've never done anything harder, and I've never been more proud of myself. The misery for the most part has lifted and I'm starting to get back to being myself, or maybe finding out who I really am without the cloud of alcohol hanging over me all the time. I'm learning that I don't like certain things about myself, but I can slowly start to change them. Baby steps, of course; but for the first time in a long time I feel like the best of me is yet to come. The main thing that has been holding me back is me.
