People!

Things I’ve heard since I started working at Zaxby’s:

A girl around 5 or 6 years old said to her father: “Why do grown-ups have to sleep together?”. Haha. I did not hear his reply, I wish I had.

A bratty spoiled-looking girl who had applied for a cashier position, gotten the job, and then backed out of it just in time for her first day of work told me: “I couldn’t work here. It’s too hard.” Yeah, she thinks fast food is too hard.

A black man was paying for his food and his change was a penny. He said “Keep the penny. Now that Obama is president, I can do that. When Bush was president, you couldn’t give away s**t.” Um, yeah. I forgot that Obama is gonna make all blacks rich.

You Own My Dream Car

I am coming up on the 10th year anniversary of owning my car, and in “honor” of that occasion, I am giving you a list of the depreciation that has occurred over those 10 years. (I am really hoping that God reads my blog, and either bestows a newer car upon me free of charge, or magically spiffs up my old one. Either one’s fine with me.) If any of you are unhappy with your current mode of transportation, allow me to make you appreciate your vehicle as it should be appreciated.

My car:

-1990 Toyota Corolla (I bought it used in April of 1999 with 34k miles on it, now has 140,661)

-No air conditioning (for 3-4 years now)

-No fan to blow heat or air even if the air compressor would cool air. (for the last 2-3 years)

-Vents are all messed up, some of them won’t open all the way, some of them won’t close.

-Windshield wiper fluid bottle broke off.

-Broken drink holders.

-Driver side window wouldn’t roll up all the way, and now the handle is completely broken off.

-Passenger side window handle is broken.

-Hood prop broken off completely, have to manually prop it open now.

-The ceiling fabric has come completely unglued and is only attached around the edges.

-Interior light is now useless because the fabric falls below it and blocks all of the light.

-Cracked dashboard.

-Big dent on driver side door (in addition to numerous other scratches and dents all over).

-Brake light casing broken.

-Handle on glove box is gone.

-Passenger side black rubber detail stripe came off (just on the front door).

-Passenger side inside door handle was broken,  but Josh fixed that a while back.

Now, it still runs- but thanks only to the fact that I have replaced both the engine and the transmission within the last 5 years.

Don’t get me wrong, I really love my car. And at least I do have one! I just thought I could bring a bit of thanksgiving into your life, kinda like when you see that mangled person at Wal-mart and you remember to thank God for giving you a nice face and all of your limbs.

stuff I read/heard yesterday that brightened my day (not)

1. John Smoltz is signing a $5 million contract (with a possible $5 mil more in bonuses) with the Boston Red Sox after 20 years with the Atlanta Braves. Sad. But I sort of understand wanting to be on a pretty good team one last time.
2. Inauguration day. Is. A. School. Holiday. This. Year. What. The. Bloody. Heck.
3. The porn industry is struggling because of the “recession” too! Larry Flynt asking for a $5 billion bailout. I’m hoping this is a joke, but at least it looks like they are getting less paying business.
