Ok, dumb "smart phone" won't let me. Will try from the laptop.
So, I go to pick up our dinner. My husband ordered a plain cheeseburger with burger and cheese only. His was the last order made since it was "special". I pick it up and notice its very, very light. I open it and it was only a slice of cheese. I asked where the rest of it was and they told me "you wanted a plain cheeseburger, there it is".
Didn't mean to Send it yet! Sorry, that's what I get for multitasking. Anyway, I spent 10 minutes explaining a slice of cheese is not a cheeseburger. I've had orders messed up before, but never like that.
Went to McDonald's once when I was short on time on the way to work in the Air Force. Got the two cheeseburger meal, this place was always screwing up my orders. When I got down the road I pull one out and find neither of them have a hamburger patty in them. I was pretty hot under the collar cause I had no time to turn around and address it (I shave it close on time going to work). So now I'm out $6 and no food, no time to go back. I fling it out the passenger window of my Ford Ranger at the time in anger. Of course the centrifugal force of the spinning burger flying across the cab causes the ketchup and mustard and splat all over the inside of the windshield. That was a good afternoon.
Oh that sounds like it was a delightful day. At least you didn't act like one loon I once arrested. He was so ticked that he jumped the counter and grabbed handfuls of food and smashed them everywhere. By the time we got there he had moved on to tossing trashcans. That was fun.
Got back from lunch, pulled into my usual spot in parking lot, turned off engine...lights still on, radio on, brake locked, could not get engine on again! This happened this morning when I got to work also... Thinking I would have to have it towed to the dealer... So ask an man walking by to look at sits down, nope it won't work, looks over and says that's the problem, it was in DRIVE, not park!! I've only been driving this car for seven months...geeeeeez.
I have had similar moments. I drive a Prius, and I cannot tell you how easy it is to walk away from it still running since it makes no noise.
I've done that.
I've also set the keys to the ACC position to light a smoke and forgot to retrieve said keys. Go out in the morning to go to work: Dead Battery
The seat looks a bit interesting. Ouch!
Hi all... have to eat and run...
I just googled "Eatocracy cutting board", oh the memories, posts bac to August 2011, with WIT, Tazer, and IHEG. Seemed we were having more fun back then, just sayin'...
Happy day-before-Friday kids. I guess my lastest not-so-subtle attempt at getting an Eatocracy cutting board failed. :(
RH – Said homeless trolls under the bridge in LA have nothing to fear, I can get a room at the Ritz Carlton next to JW for a measily $596 per night, plus tax, plus tip, plus tip, plus tip, plus more taxes, plus parking. Doesn't look like the neighborhood has a Motel 6...
Souper 8 ? :))
What about the Rump Shaker Inn? Rates are by the hour. Reeaaaalllllll nice!
Rooms by the hour, but quarters make the bed go "bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz"
My colleague who had them made has left the company, sadly. If they go back into production, Klatschers will be the first to have one!
If you can find the company that made them, I would gladly order one today and pay for it on Tuesday (who am I?). :)
Wimpy (that's a name, not an insult.)
I suck :(
What you do on your time is your business. What's important is, do you swallow?
winner, winner, Wimpy dinner!
If you have the design, and Kat and the powers that be are okay with it, Kudos Kitchen on etsy might be able to help you out. I ordered some custom glasses thru her, but she also works with/on other kitchen mediums. She's somewhere in the midwest so shipping prices aren't bad!
Do a google news search for Fred Willard for the latest news on him since we are being moderated on here.
Are Navejo Windtalker Code Classes going to be required soon?
No Dutch ovens allowed.
Dutch Ovens are now known as Hans Jansen Cookers until further notice.
Eeeeew. Fred & I share birthdates .... explains alot regarding the PeeWee Herman reference.
I am flying my Food Flag upside down.
Mine's already that way.....
"According to TMZ, Willard is also "rumored" to be in pre-production for a movie entitled "The Yank."- -Hilarious since that is what he was doing.
Your comment is awaiting moderation.

It's a High Jacking to be sure !!
I bet the prequil to The Yank was a real mess too.
HEY, Whaa Happen!?!
Good morning all. 100 degrees for the foreseeable future in Denver. Not fun.
Lots to think about, but the praying for rain thread is nothing short of disgusting. Drop over to the religion section (I think CNN calls it "Faith"), and you can see just how hateful (and uncensored) athiests can be. In our era of such enhanced political correctness, it seems to be open season on families, men, or anyone with faith.
Was that really you posting on the Pray for Rain page? I know you're religious, but it seemed a bit extreme and didn't sound like you.
Negative...If you scroll down some you will see him posting a bunch of pro-Islamic stuff, which is definitely NOT me.
That was my point. Seemed a wee bit to extreme.
Morning everyone! was hoping to get some rain last night but apparently it all went to the north.
SirB, any flooding in your area of DC?
Nothing in my hood but a lot of noise and lightening as the storm band was north of us running from Fredrick, Bethesda, Silver Spring, etc. Capitol Hll must have just been on the fringe of it but I did see on the news a lot of problems in other areas that were hit hard.
Did you have any issues?
we could hear it, and got maybe a hot second worth of rain. i saw images from some DC neighborhood and the flooding was just insane! wouldn't mind getting some more rain for the garden but not that much thankyouverymuch :-)
How are the cukes going?
Picked another 8 cukes the other night. Figure I have a good weekly yield going. Some critter is getting at a few of my tomatoes though. Enough to share but still an annoyance.
Between the feral cats and the snake no critters have made it to my garden :-) I had slug issues at the start of summer but beer took care of that problem!
You got the slugs drunk?
yes...drunk...exactly what happens :-D
If you ever have slugs just get a small plastic plate that has a good lip on it, cups work just make sure isn't more than an inch or two in height. Cover the bottom in your favorite cheap beer and place along the borders of your garden around sunset. Empty the next afternoon and repeat as needed. Slugs check in, but they don't check out
Slugs LOVE Four Loko and Smirnoff Ice. Not kidding at ALL.
Sounds like a waste of booze...;)
Small howdy! Have internet connectivity issues here so I won't be on much this next week. Cheers and Hugs to everyone!
Good morning. JBJ, I'll try to not be toooooo hurt that you left me off your US tour list yesterday, but it will be difficult! :-) I'm somewhere between Mildred and Kat in the tour order in case you want to publish a revision.

What's happenin' in MO besides Heat and Water Restrictions? Try using a slip and slide, works every time. :)
Hi , no ristrictions where I am !! The horse trough (new) is getting good use :-) Hopefully some Great news Soon ;-D
Okay Eatocracy, I posted what I thouht was some harmless "Richard Simmons" and "Boy George" comments but do you mean to tell me that you are going to let all that hateful fracking mess on the "Praying for rain in the Arkansas drought" thread stay??
Give 'em Hell Lil' Buddy. I tried to bring up a similar point in the past as well as Jdizz. SIGH !!
Sarah and I remain human. Still digging through comments. Gotta sleep sometime!
And y'all know better than they do! They're visitors, but you're family.
What was the response on that? I can't find where I posted that.
It was within the past few days–maybe Monday or Tuesday. On a different thread.
Aw - I can't deal with hell right now. No hell, please.
Yeah, that IS a mess over there. Been awhile since I've seen so many trolls in one place.
ALL of the trolls are hanging out under the bridge west of the Marriott Hotel that JBJ wants to stay. :)) I Hope the little one feels better after seeing the Doc this morning. Hang in there.
@RichardH- thank you! We are just waiting to be seen. They've got some terrible toddler programs on that's keeping her happy for now.
It was the whole invoking prayer thing, and the fact that it was on Mainpage. Kind of a perfect storm.
I smell double standard!!!
How are you doing Jerv!?!??!
Doing well and oh so busy since the boss quit. Party on Liberace!
Don't be a stranger Jerv otherwise they are going to go through with plans to dedicate the last video booth on the right at DDD in your memorial honor.
Haha! Heck, they may as well dedicate the whole da mn place to me and Peewee.
No time anymore to create such a list. Copying it from a Word doc to post or updating it upon request – seconds.
If memory serves, QOE requested the addition of "vib rat or"
Hello! Been up since 3am. My little girl has a tummy bug. Waiting for the pediatrician to open. This will end up being a lazy kind of day, don't plan on doing anything I don't have to. I'll have to make something easy tonight or cave in and get take out. Anyway, hope everyone has a good day :)
