Literacy 101 – Darmok’s comment said “is going to get him fired”, referring to the future. Also (Sarc off) means “Sarcasm off”.
Have a nice day.

The last two times I ordered coffee at McDonald’s I had trouble getting them to just give me my coffee black with no sugar. And even though they were advertising Paul Newman’s coffee it tasted like Charbucks. That’s why I like Dunkin’, but maybe I’ll give Mickey D’s another chance.

Rosech – Her parents wanted an invitation and that’s what they got, though it wasn’t exactly what they expected. Her message was I’m through trying to please you and live up (or down) to your expectations. Personally, on Christmas Day after yet another unpleasant conversation with a sibling, walking to the car, I said to my spouse, “Done.”

Many years ago, I was driving our very ill son to the pediatrician’s. It was miserably hot and the car AC wasn’t working, so I had the car windows open. There was an accident on the interstate and traffic was crawling at something like 2 mph. Just as I flipped on the blinker to pull onto the exit ramp, I caught a flicker of motion on the right side of the car. As I quickly yanked my vehicle back into the travel lane, another car just barely blew past me in the breakdown lane. Out of sheer frustration, I yelled at Heaven, “Where is a cop when you need one?” Well, the state policeman in the unmarked vehicle directly in front of me flicked on his lights and pulled Mr. “I’m-too-much-in-a-hurry-to-wait around” over on the shoulder of the exit ramp. As I slowly pulled off the ramp and past the police car and the other vehicle on the shoulder, the officer broke off his conversation with the other driver to give me a big wave. It’s so cool when God answers prayers….
I know the feeling. A guy decided to get past traffic congestion by driving on the shoulder. He came on a stealth unit parked and he drove into the grass to get around him. Soon that stealth unit was lit up behind him like a Christmas tree. We were listening to it on the state radio system. Dude got 3 tickets because it was a construction zone.

Funny, she doesn’t seem to be getting any thinner. I wonder why…

I disagree. IMHO, unless you personally knew the family, your statement is pure conjecture. People get angry at other people all the time. However, most of us can get over it without resorting to violence and move on with our lives. Apparently, this young man didn’t. That doesn’t mean his family wasn’t a “good” family, it means he gave into the violence with murderous intent.
True I'm not walking through the crime scene and interviewing witnesses, and my information is limited....
In my experience kids that get mad and violent at their parents don't murder the whole family.... Take a swing at dad, throw something at mom, break objects in the house,and so-on, it called acting out and that's what happens with good families everyday in America. But Murdering everyone house, and then shooting it out with police in another state ??
Also in my experience, when anything looks to good to be true, it usually is...........................
@BryanB..... "Also in my experience, when anything looks to good to be true, it usually is………………………" YEAH, like "you can keep your doctor, and save $2,500.00/yr. as well"..................

Years ago, a member of the nursing staff came in to get her paycheck. I was on the phone with another employee and held up a finger to let her know I’d be right with her. I finished writing down the info and turned back to give her the check only to find she taken the single pay envelope lying on my desk and signed out. I ran after her, but she was already out of the parking lot. Get this – she signed the back of the check and a local bank CASHED IT, even though it was made out to a man and was more than her normal check would be!!! When the Director of Nursing asked her why she went ahead and cashed the check, she said she didn’t know it wasn’t her check!!!
In our part of New England, we are often faced with the same problem. They will plow us back in after we dig out. We share a multiple driveway and two years ago, the guys were out there at 6 a.m. digging out the snow and the ice. The plow came by at 8 and that was it. Someone knew somebody with a snow blower and a plow but we had to wait for him to get to us simply because we couldn’t move all that hardened ice by hand.

Sure, she’ll have to declare it and pay the income taxes on the gift, but that’s still far less than it would cost to purchase another vehicle — and much much less than it would cost to buy this one!
I already feel bad for the O’Donnell kids because Rosie ran her mouth off not all that long ago on The View about how she and Michelle were going up to their room to “watch a movie” with air quotes and did not want to be disturbed. It was clear watching a movie was not even on the radar. Those poor kids had to go to school the next day and face their friends, all of whom probably had heard the story from others. I couldn’t believe that she said that on national TV.

I think you’re right. We just had some drunken fool clip two cars and then drive about a mile away, pull into a parking lot and fall asleep at the wheel. Too bad that one of the witnesses followed him to the lot, and then went back to tell the victims and the police where he was.
"Officer. did I really say 8500 SOUTH Wilson St? Oh man, I was so nervous I got confused. Too bad it took so long for you to get here. Will the perp be alright?"

Actually, I was kind of impressed that he was willing to do it. However, we didn’t get to see WHO it was….still, it was worth a chuckle.

My guess would be they would probably be in the Eight Circle, with the FRAUDS. There are several possibilities available:
Bolgia 2: Flatterers also exploited other people, this time using language;
Bolgia 5: Corrupt politicians (barrators) are immersed in a lake of boiling pitch, which represents the sticky fingers and dark secrets of their corrupt deals;
Bolgia 6: In the sixth Bolgia, the poets find the hypocrites listlessly walking along wearing gilded lead cloaks, which represent the falsity behind the surface appearance of their actions – falsity that weighs them down and makes spiritual progress impossible for them.
Bolgia 10: In the final Bolgia, various sorts of falsifiers (alchemists, counterfeiters, perjurers, and impostors) – who are a “disease” on society – are themselves afflicted with different types of diseases.
Personally, I like Bolgia 5, but depending on one’s viewpoint, there are other choices.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the families who lost loved one and my prayers for speedy recovery for those who were injured. May the hands of the first responders and all the medical personnel be strong and sure.

What irony!!!! Yesterday, I walked out of our building to find a F-150 stuck on the street in front of our house. My driveway was blocked, so I ended up walking to work, some six blocks away.

One good doctor’s bill or a blown tire can sink a budget easily if you don’t have a reserve to draw from. And even then, sometimes disasters happen, like a hospitalization. Someone I know had the brakes on her car go, that was $600 plus, thank you very much, ma’am. Two weeks later, a wind storm literally torn the storm door off the house. That’ll be $400.00 to repair the frame and replace the door. Wiped out her reserves. It happens.
