    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".

    July 19, 2012 at 5:36 pm |
    • angrybabykitty

      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.

    • Truth™@JBJ

      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

    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...

      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 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!

    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.

    July 19, 2012 at 9:54 am |
    • Sir Biddle@Truth

      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.

      July 19, 2012 at 10:11 am |
      • Truth™@Biddle

        Negative...If you scroll down some you will see him posting a bunch of pro-Islamic stuff, which is definitely NOT me.

        July 19, 2012 at 10:15 am |
        • Sir Biddle@Truth

          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?

    July 19, 2012 at 9:44 am |
    • Sir Biddle@JJ

      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?

      July 19, 2012 at 10:21 am |
      • JainaJade@SirB

        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?

        July 19, 2012 at 11:40 am |
        • Sir Biddle@JJ

          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.

          July 19, 2012 at 11:53 am |
        • JainaJade@SirB

          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!

          July 19, 2012 at 3:11 pm |
        • The Smart Aleck@JJ

          You got the slugs drunk?

          July 19, 2012 at 3:35 pm |
        • JainaJade@TheSmartAleck

          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

          July 19, 2012 at 3:43 pm |
