Really, wasn’t it Halloween just less than a week ago? I literally still have the taste of this holiday in my mouth as there are plastic buckets full of candy and chocolates strewn about the office I work in and I just can’t keep my hands out of them. Chocolate drool down my chin. This time of year really tests my resolve which is disappearing as the days go on. First Halloween, then Thanksgiving, which then leads to Christmas and New Years. There are only 47 days until Christmas! Only 7 weeks. Just 7 weekends to get all that horrendous shopping done. Hold on now, let’s backtrack a bit. Halloween just ended. What gets me all riled up is that we are already getting bombarded with holiday commercials and Christmas merchandise in the stores. What the eff??? Really, can we just enjoy each holiday first before having the next one shoved down our throats and ripped through our buttholes? Why am I seeing ads for toys and gifts at the major retailers on October 28th? Why does my local Duane Reade already have boxes of Christmas wrap in the windows on November 5th? This lunacy needs to end right now! What’s next? July 4th sales the day after New Years? How about Christmas ads for 2015 the day after Easter? Makes me want to go all Bigfoot on these places and start throwing poop everywhere.
Also, what the heck is wrong with Florida? If it’s not one embarrassing story that is hard to believe another one comes out and tops it. The other day a 90 year old man and two pastors were arrested for giving food to the homeless. What is going on down there? Really? Like the police department have nothing better to do than charge a 90 year old for being a good samaritan? Now he faces 60 days in jail and a $500 fine all because of a recent ordinance banning public food sharings. A 90 year old man! A WW II veteran! All he was doing was showing compassion and humanity to our fellow man who are homeless and hungry. I’m really starting to think this whole country has a screw loose as I have heard other cities such as Fort Lauderdale have also passed ordinances such as this. It’s a sad day when we brush aside common sense and caring for some ridiculous laws based on flimsy justifications.
I also read this week here that a NYC MTA bus driver saw some dude that had been messing aroung with his old lady. He stabbed the cheating lothario in the arm. Lots of blood. Problem was the driver was in operation of his bus at the time. He pulled it to a stop, ran down the street after the other dude who was in his car, got in a fight with him, then stabbed him with a pocket knife! Really? This dude just threw his career down the drain over a cheating wife. He was arrested and charged. Talk about a case of road rage. Good thing the bus was empty. Unless everyone was scared shitless and hiding under their seats. Why does this sound like a Seinfeld episode? Where is Batman when you need him?
First it was ebola. Now we are getting bombarded with flu shot announcements of all kinds. Sure, we know winter is coming and flu season is approaching. We are exposed to all kinds of germs, colds, and flu day in and day out. Our coworkers coming in sick, people coughing and sneezing on mass transit we ride, and just being out in the general public can get us infected. Yet, people who are sick refuse to stay home. Really? So you would rather go out and get the rest of us sick too? Now, I’m not ranting about those who can’t afford to take a sick day. It’s more about those idiots who still go out to the bars, movies, public places, stores, restaurants, etc, and spread thier vile nastiness to all the rest of us when they should be home in bed taking it easy. It’s like some of these dolts just can’t give up a few days of going out to get better less they miss something by staying in. News flash – you’re not missing anything! Stay the heck away from me. Stay home! I wish we could stab these people in the brain like a walker on The Walking Dead. It would make me feel better!
