They’re Multiplying.

A comment just witnessed on a cosmetic for sale: “I bought this set because of the limited addition Wild Rose Shimmer Brick.” SIGH. More like “LIMITED GRAMMAR”, lady.

Thinking Outside the Mailbox

The USPS — that ever-vigilant beacon of precision and accuracy — placed a letter in our mailbox yesterday which was not addressed to us. That, in itself, is no rarity.  I know that there are those of you reading who cannot discern the tone of my cynicism above, no matter how obvious it may be […]

*Snicker*

Ah yes. The one who reverses . . . this is the veritable Rhodes Scholar of whom I wrote this morning. We wondered as we drove in from our long day at the hospital today and saw the big veering tracks up the grass “what idiot would drive like that???” . . . . . […]

An Icy Slip-and-Slide

I’m tired. (Groundbreaking intro there, folks.  Groundbreaking.) Tired and apprehensive. The tired . . . obviously.  Got up yesterday morning, procured my cup of coffee, then decided “You know what?  I’m going to lie back down.” And that’s what I did . . . or planned to do . . . for the rest of […]

“She’s Not HERE Today”

There is nothing I love more. Than showing up for an appointment. Only to be told I HAVE no appointment. (This is especially appreciated when I’ve woken up really early. Or had to drive a long distance to make it to my phantom appointment.) —————— This was an introductory appointment at a new general practice. […]

USPS Fail #289526

Woefully discovered this morning’s coffee k-cup was the last in the whole entire house. Proceeded to spill half of that last cup all over my keyboard. Took it apart, washed it out, am still waiting to see if it is salvageable. Typing on basic behemoth of a keyboard.  My keyboard is low profile and sleek […]

No More 3×5′s

1.  Our useless mail woman strikes again.  Knobby was expecting a package to be delivered by the hated USPS today, went down a few hours before and attached a large post-it note with v.clear instructions that the gate was open, to drive up the driveway and deliver the package TO OUR HOUSE. Of course . […]

Cindy Vinson: Typical Democrat

This quote sums up how I view anyone who is light-headed enough to be supportive of this blight called obamacare: Meet Cindy Vinson, a 60 year old retired teacher living in San Jose, who proudly proclaims that she voted for Jughead not once, but TWICE. (Picture and caption snipped from the article.) Cindy here recently […]

Dumbpost is more like it.

The USPS alliance with FedEx, “Smartpost”, exhibits that “improved tracking” fail once again. Only to a government facility (USPS) would this totally unreliable tracking . . .make sense. Estimated delivery:  Saturday.  Wednesday:  Out for delivery! Dumbpost is more like it. FedEx, it’s nice that you want to push that whole “arrange your delivery date” service […]
