This day is already shot right in the fucking head. I do not know a single person that can make a plan for more than 15 minutes into the future and pull it off. Not one. This is the last person I try to help, fuck 'em. All of 'em. I don't know anyone who isn't too fucking stupid to live. Everybody I know is just dumber than shit. How have these people lived this long? How on Earth do they get by being this fucking ignorant?

Help you? Fuck you. I'll help the next person that helps me. See how well that shit goes.

Want a ride? Sure, I'll give you a ride, $3 per mile. And get screwed if you don't like it, call a cab.

Goddamn, I hate people,

News services said she didn't want a funeral, memorial service; or, even a grave marker. Reportedly; because, she didn't like either fame or death. But everyone knows she just didn't want anyone showing her animals where they could dig up her bones.

On the up side, you couldn't have screwed anything up because you didn't get a chance to do anything.

God I hated those "contractor orientation" sessions. Some power plants would give us a test at the end. I almost didn't get into A Commonwealth Edison plant because I left one question blank.
The question was, "If you're injured who do you tell?"
The answer was, "Your supervisor".
I said that wasn't covered in the orientation.
The guy says yeah, but every employee knows that.

I ordered something from Amazon today for $4.49. It's a2 inch coin with a blade. Looked cool, might be useful for opening boxes, you know, impulse buy. Thing is, it's expected to arrive June 11th - July 2nd. Coming from China, obviously....

For $4.49 including shipping. How much profit could they possibly be making. I don't think you can mail a letter to China for that much. What's going on here?

I read something that there is some mail treaty between countries and China gets an amazing deal on shipping. Basically, the USPO is subsidizing little purchases from China like this.

2.15 on ebay (more risky obviously but....) https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mini-Protab...frcectupt=true

When Trump was banging on about going after unfair trade deals with china/whatev, I kind of assumed it would be this sort of thing but.... :/

My day was shitty with splashes of crap and a mixed misery garnish.

Thanks for asking.
