Rotten Beef….What's Eating You?

  • Aug 30

    Come on people! Why is it that when a smoker is in front of you at the cash register they stand there for 20 minutes trying to decide which cigarettes to get? “Um, can I see the ones to the right? No no, the blue pack. No that one on the 3rd shelf.” You been smoking the same f’in brand for years! What the hell takes so long to make up your damn mind? Does smoking limit your brain functions? I mean the damn things are gonna kill you anyway, why the hell should it make a difference which brand or what color the pack is. Just take them and get in with your life, as short as it will be from smoking cigarettes!

    I had to go to the grocery store tonight to get just a couple things. In and out, just what I planned. But somehow someone always changes my plans.

    I get in a checkout lane where a customer ahead of me forgot something and had to have the bag boy run and get one. So I jump to the “Express” line. Boy that was sure a mistake. The woman in front of me wanted to pay for her groceries with a paper check. She was from out of state and the cashier had to call for approval and then it took the lady what seemed like forever to write the check and enter it in her check register.

    So my question is, who pays by paper check in the grocery store anymore?

    Not to sound prejudice, but the woman must have been in her 60’s at least. And when I though about it, it occurred to me, I could not remember a time when I saw a younger generation writing out a check while shopping. I said to the cashier when it was my turn, “that is probably the last generation you will ever see pay by a paper check when shopping”. She apologized and then agreed.

    How many WalMart shoppers do you know that can count to 20? Run a self-checkout? Me neither. On my recent trip to the mega mart tonight, I had been waiting in line at least 15 minutes before I took this photo.

    If 15 minutes is fast, I’d hate to be in the slower checkout lane! It’s bad enough they offer you the option to checkout in English here in the good ‘ol US of A, but then to have people who can’t comprehend how to scan a bar code over the scanner? One of life’s mysteries we will probably never understand!

    I’m running low on soap for the shower. I ask my wife to grab some when she goes to the store. 

    You know women, they see something new, they want to try it. So she strays from the normal brand and picks up this new soap. She gets this type called the “Go Fresh Energize Beauty Bar”. It has 1/4 hydrating lotion with the sparkling scent of grapefruit & lemongrass. Lemongrass? Isn’t that something I saw them cooking with on the Food Network? Eh, I’ll give it a try. I never read the box, I just grab the soap and climb in the shower. After this shower, I think maybe I’ll start reading labels from now on.

    Who had the bright idea to make my shower soap feel like 80 Grit sandpaper? That’s right, I said sandpaper! I wasn’t too crazy about the scent but damn that soap was rough. It slipped out of my hands once, so I thought some grout from the shower stall may have gotten stuck in it. I tried rinsing it off and the more I rinsed the soap the rougher it got.

    After showering I grabbed the box from the trash and read it:

    “Whoa!”  Invigorating beads that act as little wake-up calls for your skin. A get-it-going boost in the morning? Big time.

    “Whoa!” Big time is right! I certainly got woken up from that shower.

    I checked their website and noticed they had two other fragrances as well:

    Refresh: Water Lily and Fresh Mint
    Cool Moisture: Cucumber and Green Tea

    The refreshing scents I can probably get used to but the feeling of washing my body with sandpaper? Well, that’s a different story.

    The mind is a wonderful part of our body. But did you ever stop to try and figure it out? I did and it still baffles me.

    I went to the mall yesterday. Looking for a place to park, I went into the parking garage. I drive a (small) SUV, so the first thing I do is always look at the overhead clearance. Plenty of room for me. As I start to drive in I notice how low the cement beams overhead look. I know there is enough clearance because the sign said so. Yet strangely enough I begin to duck my head as I go under the beams.

    Why did I do that? I don’t know. I knew the clearance was high enough, yet I still crouched in my seat. How weird things can be at times. It’s like looking through a window and seeing a piece of paper or other small insignificant article blow into it. You know it won’t hit you yet you still move.

    My random thought for today.

    Blog ya later.

    Today’s woman does not want to be treated like a sex object! Don’t leer at her or drool over her. Just treat her like you would any other person.

    But wait am I missing something here?

    Why does it seem that lots of women today dress like this girl above? That’s not asking for respect, that’s asking for stares and rude comments. or is it?

    What’s up here girls? You’re sending us guys mixed messages!

    OK, so I go to this holiday party and everyone was dressed up nice for the event. Even the most conservative of girls I work with were dressed like this girl above. Is a company function a reason to dress like a slut? I mean come on. If you dress like this and don’t mind men making (decent) remarks like hey you look nice tonight, then I suppose it is ok. But if you dress like this and act like a prude (thinking just because he comments he wants in my pants), then you have issues girl!

    Lets try and be a bit more clear as to what you are trying to say now. Is that too much to ask?
