To be fair, I do know a few of those gals as well and wouldn't hesitate to give them a call if need be. But, in my experience with most hardware stores, the odds are with me.

It really shouldn't take four phone calls to one store over a 15 minutes to confirm that they have 15 cases of distilled water.

I'm close and when I mean close, it's the proverbial C hair away.
Just about a half an hour ago almost sent me over the edge dealing with a new temp.


I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

And then !

While unloading those 15 cases at home ,
You find out that four of those cases are NOT distilled but spring water.

I blame the suits

Order taker yelling to the kitchen - Do we have Swiss cheese?

Cook - Yes

Me - I’d like Swiss then.


I would have at least said something like "That is what the Swiss is - Swiss cheese."

I do like a mushroom-Swiss burger, too.

At McDonald's it is all I can do, when they ask me "Do you want anything else?," to not say, "That is why I stopped talking - my order is complete, and I have ordered everything I want."

I know they are trained to do this. Maybe it is upselling and maybe it is that they have learned that many people are idiots and forget to order a drink, but it drives me crazy.

My friend Rick was born on December 31 so we usually get together that evening for a combined birthday/New Year's party. A few years back his wife ordered a cake from Wal*Mart over the telephone and picked it up without looking at it. When we unboxed it that evening this is what was written on it, verbatim:

Happy Birthday Rick!
Below That
Happy New Year!

We still laugh about it.

An apocryphal but plausible story:

Marc orders a coffee at Starbucks.
Server: "What name on the order?"
Marc: "Marc, with a C."
Marc gets his order and the label says "Cark."
