Internet comments

Some internet comments make you go: Did you just really post that?

Then there are internet comments that make you LOL at work & have no shame.

I’ve experienced both of these in the last two hours.

I’ll let you decide which one this is:


In my neck of the woods we have a series of McDonald’s with a double order lane – for those unfamiliar, its essentially two order windows adjacent to each other – the left and right car place their orders, then merge into a single lane to pay for their order. While a great idea on paper – McDonald’s neglected to remember that most drivers lack the capacity to yield and merge…or for that matter exhibit the slightest bit of “turn etiquette”. What will inevitably happen is a driver in the first position will have a lengthy order – while a driver in the far right “second lane” will only be order a McChicken. The driver in the second position wraps up their order quickly and speeds ahead five feet to the primary pay/pick-up lane – if there is the slightest bit of congestion this driver’s front end will stall about five feet from where the primary driver would merge into the pay/pick-up lane. At this point the driver in window number 1 just wrapped up their order and inches up to merge. Driver number one is waiting for the car ahead of him to pull up to the pay window. The showdown begins – driver number two (who ordered the McChicken in the secondary lane) believes he finished his order first and should not yield to driver one…depending on the aptitude of driver number one…this could result in an impasse…that is only solvable through the use of heavy artillery.
And not to mention…the pain in the arse the secondary window causes for the cashier – he/she must verify every order because you never know who actually yielded/waited their turn.

Quotes from the World for Tuesday 11/19/MXIII

What is meant by “reality”? It would seem to be something very erratic, very undependable—now to be found in a dusty road, now in a scrap of newspaper in the street, now a daffodil in the sun. It lights up a group in a room and stamps some casual saying. It overwhelms one walking home beneath the stars and makes the silent world more real than the world of speech—and then there it is again in an omnibus in the uproar of Piccadilly. Sometimes, too, it seems to dwell in shapes too far away for us to discern what their nature is. But whatever it touches, it fixes and makes permanent. That is what remains over when the skin of the day has been cast into the hedge; that is what is left of past time and of our loves and hates.

I hurt my toe yesterday, it hurts worse today.

Good Morning & Happy Monday. Today is 11/18/V3.4 & it is Allison’s Birthday!!!

I was suppose to go walking door – to – door, but since I can’t walk from my bedroom door to bathroom door. I don’t think front door to front door is the best idea.

Aren’t you glad we got two feet, two ears, two eyes & 1 mouth. I’ll walk in you shoes. I’ll listen to you. I’ll see you. I’ll give advice of you ask.
