Thoughts on the Day

  • Waiting until the day of a security audit to address issues that were pointed out to you a month ago does not make for a happy DaddyBear.
  • Calling DaddyBear into a jury selection on a Monday afternoon, followed by calling him back the next morning to tell him if he's on the jury, followed by sending the jury home 5 minutes after announcing the selection doesn't do much for DaddyBear's attitude either.
  • When you are openly hostile to the judge as you are being considered for a jury, please remember that 12 of us are going to have to deal with the damage you leave behind.
  • It is never a good sign to see two uniformed police officers leaving a courthouse carrying a baby wrapped in a police coat.
  • There must be a way to mathematically model the relationship between a given location's distance from the center of a city and the number of flashing ambulance and police lights that you see as you drive.  I see maybe one policeman and one ambulance a week out in my sleepy little area.  I swear their density grows logarithmically as I get closer to downtown.
  • To the nice lady in the Subaru Forester with all the peace signs and COEXIST stickers: you're going to miss that finger when it gets broken off by a side mirror.
  • If I can hear you eat while I listen to Metallica on my headphones, your mother just didn't raise you right.
  • The left turn lane is for turning left people.  It's not a passing lane so you can make a right turn sooner.
  • The work is done when it is done.  Asking me for a status report every 5 minutes is not going to hurry it up.
  • Being married to an Irish redhead is sometimes like being Inspector Clouseau and paying your servant to try to kill you so you keep your edge.
  • Coming home to Eskimo and Butterfly kisses, eating a warm meal, and making banana bread is a great way to end a very long day.

I know the fact that it could be worse doesn't make it better, but you could be living in Bullitt County where you get to serve on jury duty for three months.

Every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday night, sometime after 6:00PM, you have to call a special telephone number to find out if you have to come in to the courthouse the next morning for jury selection.

This plays total havoc with work schedules and customer commitments and was obviously designed around people who don't work for a living.

You're right, Roy. It could always be worse.

Holy crap, can I get an "AMEN"?!?!?

If they have time to ask for a status report every 5 min. doesn't that meany they have the time to do it themselves.


Pointing this out to them isn't always a good idea though, just saying.
