I would have said the human race.
The damn news just forgot that there were still people living outside the metro area.

Ha. Babs and race. Cute.

If I had that much trouble getting my newspaper I would be making a personal in person trip to the newspaper offices. From there they would never let my paper be late again .....

OK OK so your Dr. Pepper is better than ours. Brag Brag Brag. You Texans!

I had a man come up to me and say right to my face "Honey you weren't built for speed, you were built for comfort." So I can't be in the race.

Aurelius said...

'Bitching like a motherfucker, but I make 'em laugh', what a great line.

BTW Nancy, I'm pretty sure that line comes from a Muddy Waters tune:

'I'm built for comfort baby, I ain't built for speed. But I got every little thing baby, that a good girl needs. . .'

He was probably trying to be suave, he just was a dumbass and fucked it up.

Silly woman, there would be no long pause!!! I'm going to mention you in the next post I do, so look out!

BriteYellowGun said...

LOL over the alarm clock! I don't blame you though. Here, the media for the most part is controlled by right wing Christian/Pro Bush zealots as well. The one 10 p.m. news broadcast that I used to watch was so pro-Republican and biased that my mother absolutely refused to watch it when she visited. They even had a feature called "Stories of Faith" pushing their religious agenda...like this was NEWS!!!!! Happy to report, that broadcast went off the air!! But even with what's left, you always can pick up on the liberal bashing and republican sympathy slant. Ugh! No wonder this country is so fucked up.

I had some serious issues with not getting my paper a couple years ago. They gave me excuse after excuse and lots of apologys I finally got pissed and cancelled it. Acouple days after I cancelled it, I had to go to work really early. I saw something out my window. Looked to see what it was and it was my freaking neighbor, looking all over for my paper. I nailed him on the spot and called the cops, they (rolling their eyes)came and talked to him. Then I talked to him and said Hey if you can't afford the paper you should have just asked for it when I was done with it. I would have given it to you. We ended up splitting the cost of the subscription....
If I were a race I would probably be 'Dega. Zoom...Crash...bump...get out of my way. I am running late.

LOL! I wait on people like you. We servers stand in the kitchen and haggle over who will wait on them. "I waited on them last time." "No, I did and they stiffed me." Really it just boils down to which server intimidates the hosts the most. Those servers who have instilled the fear of God in them (namely me) aren't sat "those" people!!! :)

Le Pixie said...

Why is it that the dumb small town redneck people are so into that evangelical bush loving bullshit. Why are there so many stupid people in this country?

Babs said...

Did someone say NASCAR? Where's my rain??

Reg said...

I know you're a good tipper YDG. I meant that I totally understand the people arguing over who will talk to you! :)
