Seriously? This is yet another so-called holiday? What is this, France? Get to work, slackers! Presidents’ Day? Which presidents? Some were questionable, at best. Didn’t it used to be about Washington and Lincoln? And now it’s just one big murky catch-all? This is bullshit.
I’ll be working today, thank you very much. Day 16 of my big 18 day marathon. I’m almost there. I was also scheduled for Saturday morning at 6 a.m., but they took mercy on me and told me to take the weekend off. I didn’t even have to ask, although I was planning to do so… Those Saturdays are like an atom bomb on my big, doughy ass.
You know what bugs me? When people say the same things over and over again, just slightly re-worded. This usually happens when a person is telling you about some heroic stance they took at work or school, or wherever. Something like this:
“And I told him I wasn’t interested in joining the activities committee. I’m too busy. I don’t have time to sit around a conference table talking about pizza night. I’m covered-up down here, and this guy wants me to take two hours out my day to talk about a ping-pong tournament? How are things going to get done?? I told him he needed to find someone else, because there’s just way too much to do…”
We got it, dick-lick! The first two sentences were all that’s necessary. I thought you were busy? Apparently not too busy to rehash your shit, deep into the night.
And don’t you love how people always make themselves badasses in the re-telling of events? Sometimes I’m there when the original episode goes down. Then it gets re-told by someone, who makes himself all defiant and courageous, and full of righteous anger. I always want to say, “It’s true that you said some of those things, but not in that tough tone. You sounded more… whiny and pleading.”
Whatever. I don’t have much for you guys today, so I’ll just ask for your fresh outrage. We need to keep our booger-hooks on the pulse of the things that are infuriating us. So, please use the comments link below.
And hopefully I’ll be back tomorrow.
Have a great day!
