Rainn Wilson is a Silly Bitch

Since the video I posted Friday has already been taken down from Youtube, I thought I'd delete that post and share this video with you that my brother Minotaur passed along.  Enjoy!

Adventures in Angry Town

I went to Chick-Fil-A (the one with the weird cashier mentioned here) for lunch the other day (the same Chick-Fil-A that a worker there once greeted my by saying "Welcome to Chicka-Flay"). When I arrived, there were two registers opened--one with about three people in line and one with one person in line. Surveying the situation, I decided that the people in the longer line must really like waiting in a queue, so I logically chose the shorter line. After the person in front of me finished ordering, the cashier greeted me and took my order. After paying, I noticed that the older, entitled-looking woman at the end of the other line was glaring at me. I didn't pay much attention and took my food, found a seat and started eating my salad and reading the Dallas Morning News. As I finished up eating and reading the comics, I noticed that glaring lady was standing in front of my table. I looked up and she said "Excuse me." "Yes, I replied?" "You cut in front of me in line," she replied, her voice full of vitriol. "No," I replied, "I got in the other line." "There was only one line", she replied, anger spitting from her eyes. "No, there were two cashiers and two lines," I replied, "I can't help if you don't know how lines work." She harumphed and stomped off. What. The. Fuck? Seriously, I didn't cut in front of you. I logically chose the shortest line. You could've done the same thing. This reminded me of the time that I was sitting in the car that I had before the one I have now and an older woman came to get into the car next to me. As she opened her door, the wind caught it and it slammed into my door. I just stared at her, trying to hold back my anger at her carelessness. I rolled down the window and she said "Sorry, the wind caught it". I didn't say anything...I just watched as she let go of it again in another gust and again it slammed into my door. She smiled weakly at me and I replied, "Are you retarded?" Luckily, there were no (noticeable) dings. I can almost understand the first were caught off guard by the wind's strength, but the second time? You knew it happened wasn't that hard to prevent it from happening again.

I'm not trying to make a political statement or anything, but I found this picture of Hillary Clinton and, wow, does she have some "fried chicken skin" going on or what?

Minor, Non-Funny Rant

I read a lot of stuff makes the "work" day go faster, and I've discovered a couple of phrases people use incorrectly, probably because most people are fucking idiots who are--amazingly--smart enough to remember to breathe.  (I really hate stupid people for some reason...they just tax my patience and nerves).

The first phrase is "could of" (and the related "should of".  Hey,'s not "could of", it's "could've".  It's a contraction.  It's short for "could have".  How fucking hard is that?  Do you say "I could of gone to Vancouver last week if I wanted?" or "I could have gone to Vancouver last week"?  Oh, my bad...stupid question, because you're probably too stupid to know what "Vancouver" is.

Second one is "intensive purposes".  It's supposed to be "intents and purposes".  How do you confuse the two?  "And" and "ive" sound completely fucking different.  Also, just fucking think about it..."intensive purposes"?  Really?  That sounds like a real phrase?  Are you fucking retarded?

I know this post won't make a difference, but I say both of these this morning within a minute of each other and it just annoyed me. 

The world is full of idiots.  It used to be that this amused it scares me.

EDIT:  I just encountered "would of" on a forum on the 'Net.  Bah...
