Post Office Drama (I'll take it where I can get it)


I'm standing in a long line at the post office (I'm next, thank goodness) and listening to another customer argue with the lady at the desk. The customer, a well-dressed, attractive woman with THE most incredible air of entitlement, is picking up a package for someone else. They want her to sign for the package.

She does not want to sign. She hauls out 80 pieces of ID to prove who she is, but the person who asked her to pick up the package specifically told her not to sign for it. How fascinating.

So she argues with the lady behind the counter who says several times it is against their policy to relinquish this particular package without a signature. By then, of course, I'm dying to know what's in it. This goes on for a couple minutes and the clerk finally tells her to get her skinny self important ass out of the way  to please step aside.

Customer refuses and asks for the supervisor. Clerk says she will call the superivisor but to please step aside.

Customer: "I'm not stepping aside. I said I want to talk to your supervisor!"

Clerk loses it, point to the line, and roars: "AND I SAID I WILL CALL MY SUPERVISOR! BUT I AIN'T HOLDIN' UP ALL THESE PEOPLE IN THAT LINE CUZ *YOU* DON'T WANNA STEP ASIDE!"

Customer's jaw drops. It's hysterical! I burst out laughing, and people behind me--after a moment of shock--start laughing, too.

Oh, don't you wish you could be that clerk just once in your life?

P.S. The supervisor tells her to SIGN FOR THE PACKAGE!

Kanye's New Book!

I could NOT resist posting the news about self-proclaimed non-reader Kanye West's new book!

Kanye says, "Sometimes people write novels and they just be so wordy and so self-absorbed. I am not a fan of books. I would never want a book's autograph."

*snort, snicker, ROFLMAO*

Well, Kanye. I will be sure never to allow my books to sign ANYTHING for you. Uh-uh, no way, do not even ask them to!

He adds, "I am a proud non-reader of books. I like to get information from doing stuff like actually talking to people and living real life."

Which is how it should be, Kanye. I'd also like to add that I'm a proud non-listener of your music, but that's neither here nor there. But run along now, dear, and go work on your masterpiece, there's a good boy. =D

Hollywood Bonehead of the Week

Barbara Walter's interview with Peter Cook/Commentary by your neighborhood Hollywood gossip ho(stess).

"I was seeking a connection I could not find in my own marriage (to Christy Brinkley)."

And all you got was a measley $ 2.1 mil in the divorce settlement, much of which undoubtedly padded your lawyer's pockets. I'm guessing you're a bit miffed about that.

"I think the emotional aspect of our lives had changed."

Because that, of course, NEVER happens in real marriages. Oh, poor you, boo-hoo.

"I think we were both feeling more like we were living with a brother and sister than a life partner."

So you fooled around with a 18-year-old kid and then paid her off with $300,000?

"I think I just suddenly realized when I was getting attention from someone else..." (a barely legal teenager) "...that this is something that is missing in my life."

Something that wasn't fulfilled by your $3,000 a month internet pornography addiction? Something like a brain? Morals? Common sense?  Seriously, dude. THREE GRAND A MONTH ON DIRTY PICTURES???

"My hope is that the world will see that I'm not the scum bag pervert that I've been painted to be."

Whoops! Too late.

Hollywood Bonehead of the Week

Sixty-seven-year-old actor Ryan O'Neil was busted for possession of meth in Los Angeles County.

"The police search was related to (son) Redmond's probation. He was arrested last year in Malibu on charges related to possession of heroin and meth while driving under the influence."

You know what they say about apples and trees.

Ryan, Ryan, Ryan. Why meth? Don't you know what that does to you? It fries your brain. It rots your teeth and makes you break out in disgusting, dripping sores. It makes you look OLD!

Oh, wait. You are old.

Sixty-seven...and (allegedly) on meth. Puh-LEEEEZE!

(last post of the day, I swear)

Hollywood Buffoon of the Week

82-year-old Jerry Lewis was cited for trying to carry a gun onto a plane. He said the gun was "hollowed out" and couldn't be fired and that he only used it as a "prop" for some of his shows (the fact that he even does shows anymore was news to me). The authorities disagreed with the "prop" business and said if that were the case Lewis wouldn't have been cited.

Wait! If kids can't take toy guns to school, then why would people be allowed to take toy guns onto a plane?

Regardless--what a dumbass! 82-fricking-years-old and he STILL hasn't learned the "rules"?

Wasting Away in Mauryville

Okay. You're married or in a long term relationship, you have an affair on the side, and end up pregnant.

You:

A. Keep your mouth SHUT.

B. Admit it (privately) to your partner.

C. After the birth of the baby, you schedule an appearance on Maury, drag your clueless partner onstage, and make a flaming a$$ out of yourself on national TV.

Gee. Decisions, decisions.

I used to think these people were simply putting on a great show for TV (and undoubtedly for a few bucks).

Then I started working psych. Now I believe it all.

A Rant

I know it's all too easy sometimes to blame the misdeeds of kids on the parenting skills (or lack thereof) of their parents.

I understand that there are a lot of terrific, caring parents who end up with rotten kids. I also know there are many wonderful adults who were raised by idiots who should have been sterilized at puberty. Sometimes it's a crapshoot.

Having said that, I saw a disturbing video (I'm not posting the link--it's bad enough I saw it once on CNN) where a sixteen-year-old boy placed an eight-month-old baby on an inflatable mat, then jumped onto the mat and sent the baby zinging through the air to land on the floor roughly six feet away. The boy has been charged with felony child abuse. The eighteen-year-old manning the camera hasn't been charged with a crime, which I think is insane--isn't he an accessory? The baby was unhurt, but he sure screamed his head off in the video which was posted (whoa, shocker!) on YouTube.

I simply refuse to believe that a boy who was raised with respect and compassion by caring parents would do something like that. What possessed him? Did his parents teach him anything? What could he possibly have been thinking--that bouncing a baby through the air and onto the floor is funny?

I'm blown away. Just totally blown away! And I'm much too old and I've seen too many things in my life to still be blown away by something like this. But I am.
