Weather and Traffic Rants

So, its raining today. (At least it was when I started this post on my lunch today) When I left for work it was pouring. And everyone on the road is like::


People... We just had 40 inches of snow. IN A MONTH. 20 inches at once. Who care about some rain??? srsly!!

And people who drive 20 miles an hour UNDER the speed limit and then RUN the red light or stop sign. SRSLY??? Drive the f&%$ing speed limit and you wont HAVE to run the light or stop sign

As much as I complain about traffic... it is WAY WAY better than the bus.
(aka Why Port Authority Sucks)

I can get to work in less than an hour. I used to work downtown. A whopping 15 minutes from Brookline but an incredible hour or so ride on the freaking bus. Now I work in Cranberry, 35 minutes away.

My car is always warm. I don't have to freeze my ass off (shivering with my coat on) all year long because the bus driver is from the north pole and feels the need to keep the bus at 7 degrees. EVERY DAY. If its cold in the car? My fault. I'll turn the heat on.

I never leave myself stranded at the bus stop hoping the driver is late and not that they didn't show up for work. Leaving me to regret not walking to the bus way first.

There is always a place to sit. And its not a broken seat either.

Also, I don't miss these things either:

Nobody asks me if I want to take the bus home with them and "drink booze."

There is no loud mouthed bitch yelling at her kids (while on the bus) on her cell phone for calling her 27 times in the HOUR ride home from town to ask when she is coming home.

There are no culinary students with 42 pieces of luggage taking up 3 seats and blocking the aisle.

Nobody asks me for money so that they can get back to Atlanta (while speaking pittsburghese fluently).

I do miss the smithfield street church. If one of my readers walks by there regularly, I would love a pic of their message boards so I could revive Love this Church...

Observations from the Home n Garden show

Recently, I attended the home n garden show in an effort to look and compare new windows. My two very large front windows are 50 years old and SUCK. I am replacing them with 4 smaller windows. Here are my observations:

There was only one vendor selling flower and veggie seeds. And a handful selling plants. But probably 50 vendors selling giant hot tubs for $7000. Srsly. Gian,t pimp hot tubs with 200 jets, 27 lighting effects, surround sound and mini fountains. *shakes head*

I wish there had been more *garden* in the home and garden show.

People who go to the home and garden show Sunday morning and pay $10 a beer to drink while walking around CLEARLY have a drinking problem. Why else are you getting drunk at 11am for $10 A BEER???

Window salesmen should NEVER start a pitch with: "The president personally endorsed these windows."
First, it is an out right LIE. The president did not endorse a particular company. Second, You don't know the person your selling to, or their political leanings. FAIL.
While on the subject of windows.... Everyone puts gas in between the double panes now, what matters is the FRAME. So, don't tell me your company is the only one to do it. I talked to 12 window companies and half claimed they were the only ones to use the stupid krypton gas or what the hell ever its is called. FAIL again.

My final bitch today is at 4square.
OMG!! This app is RUINING my twitter feed. Its nothing for me to have 60 out of 100 tweets at a time on my phone that are stupid 4square posts. So, a couple friends and I have decided to do Fakesquare. This way we can at least be amused by tweets instead of stalking people on their mundane, boring, stupid errands. I don't wish to be stalked and I don't wish to stalk anyone. so you will never find me on 4square.
