I don't speak idiot.

I went to Sobeys this morning. I knew they would be open even though it was a holiday and took a chance it would be 10. (Yeah I could have looked it up on the internet but sometimes you just have to live dangerously. ;) ) As I was getting ready to turn right into their parking lot a dumbass decided to make an illegal left turn into the parking lot cutting in front of me. If I had been going the speed limit and not slowing to turn I would have t-boned the moron.

She then drove up and parked in the fire lane, in front of the crosswalk, by the main doors. Then she hopped out and ran up to the door.

I parked the car and tried to hold my snark in. Ok, tried to hold my anger in. I walk up and see the door is locked. Moron is still standing there. I whip out the phone and look up the holiday hours. Lo and behold they open noon to 6. It was 10:00 AM.

The dumbass says: "Excuse me do you know what time it is."

I reply: "Sorry I don't speak Idiot."

I wish I had the phone camera on and took a pic of her face. The look was priceless as she tried to process what I said.

She snarled: "Why would you talk to me like that?"

"Because you are moron. You made an illegal left hand turn and almost cut me off. You then parked your fucking car right there, in the fire lane, in front of the fucking crosswalk. Any other questions?"

She stammered a bit and couldn't seem to make a reply.

"Oh. It is 10 AM and they don't open until noon."

I walked away while she stewed. As I got in the car and buckled up I saw her get a shopping cart and stand by the door. The fucking place doesn't open for 2 hours and this loopy cunt is lining up. While her shitmobile is stll parked illegaly.

Fucking mooks.

What the ... mookishness?!?!?!?

I have had to be at an airport 3 days in the last week. In all 3 days I ran into a mook. Ok, I ran  into way too many mooks because people tend to forget everything and become a mook at an airport but these 3 stand out.

Three days in a row I ran into this behaviour. As I approached the first door to enter the airport someone (a woman in all 3 times) was standing in front of the door. I would make eye contact with them and wait. They would just stand there. I would open the door and wait. Nothing would happen. I would say "Excuse me." and they would blink and say "Oh, I didn't see you there,"

Seriously? You fucking stupid moron! You are BLOCKING the doorway to enter the airport! Yet you are surprised that someone wants to enter. Ok, I didn't say that. I sucked it in not to tell someone that she is a fucking mook and that will haunt me for a few days. Or minutes. Or fuck you.

As soon as I entered and passed them they went back to blocking the doorway. There is really nothing you can say to get a moron of that magnitude to change their ways.

Fucking mooks.

What the ... cause of road rage?!?!?!?

I have been doing a lot of highway driving in the last year plus. One thing I have noticed is something that could incite people to "road rage" or as I call it to become pissed off to all hell at the fucking assholes in front of you.

Too many times a day I am behind some mook doing 80 KPH or thereabouts in a 100 KPH or even a 110 KPH stretch of road. Mind you, as soon as you hit a place that you could pass these slow pokes they speed up. Often going 10+ KPH over the limit. At least until they get to an area that you can't pass them legally at. Then they slow way the hell back down.

I am not saying that someone would be right to run those cocksuckers off the road and do them bodily harm. However, I have thought of doing that many times in the last year plus.

If you want to drive so slow use the fucking back roads. Don't fuck over people who use the highways and expect to actually do the speed limit. Don't try peoples patience so much because one day you are going to do it to the person who will go over the edge and fuck you up.

What the ... pestering?!?!?!/

I usually buy tickets for the QE 2 Home Loto. It takes place twice a year. The last few years I have been hesitant to buy tickets. Not winning anything the last 4-5 years made me wonder why bother to buy a ticket and not just donate directly.

It is impossible to not know the tickets are on sale. There are TV and Radio ads all day long. There are mail out to anyone who has bought a ticket. They even employ ... telemarketers.

This is where my ire is raised. With all the ads and mail outs the last thing I need is some telemarketer calling me to let me know tickets are on sale. It is impossible to not know they are on sale. You can't listen to the radio on the drive to work without knowing, and their song can stay in your head for a while. You can't watch TV without seeing an ad at some point. Hell they are paying to have their ads on during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. So why the fuck do I need some faceless drone to call me to let me know tickets are on sale and wonder why I haven't bought any yet?

In the week leading up to the end of sales for the Early Bird Draw I received 3 calls with no message left and one wondering if I knew and that they knew I didn't have my tickets yet. Once again, how the fuck could I not know? They seemed gobsmacked when I said I wasn't interested. They then made the mistake of pressing their case which irritated me further. I had just said I wan't interested. Knowing their charity I decided to stay polite,just affirmed I was not interested, and told them not to call me again. I hung up after that.

It reminded me of a year ago when I waited until the day before the "last chance" for the Early Bird Draw" to order my tickets. A telemarketer called the next day because it was out last chance to get tickets before the EBD. I informed them I had already bought them and was told their records didn't show that. I told him they should have updated them so they didn't piss people off and hung up.

It is a worthy charity but holy shit they must spend a good chuck of the money raised on advertising. Do they bring in so much money they don't have to worry about the costs? If so, how about you just go with the ads and stop using fucking telemarketers?!?!?!?  Put that money towards what you are supposed to be raising it for?!?!? Your ads and mail outs are enough.

What the ... mix?!?!?

I like booze. Good booze paired with a good cigar or mix. Nice. For the last year plus I have been on a bourbon kick, trying different ones. and often trying the ones I liked.

I was talking about scotch, whiskey, and bourbon with a co-worker when he got so fucking angry. He started ranting about people who add ice or water to their booze. He thought they should be flogged or pilloried. The look of anger on his face was so strong that it was ... not scary ... revolting.

Why the fuck would you care how people like to drink their booze? I have seen people drink beer with ice in it to keep it cold. Scotch with ice for the same reason. Or with water to take a bit of the burn out. Why the fuck would you let it make you that angry?

I like my booze the way it tastes. Which usually means no mix. A few fingers at a time. Do I care how other people drink it to the point I want to cause them bodily harm? No.

What the ... Job Hater?!?!?

HR at my workplace started a new policy January 1st related to injury and accommodations. When you hand in a Dr.'s note for missed time, or to get accommodations, they want to know the diagnosis not just the treatment.

This is causing a shit storm among some employees, recently injured ones (not injured in the workplace). They feel their right to Doctor Patient confidentiality is being infringed on. It is none of works business.

It has also led to a spate of anti-work comments. You know the typical ones. I hate this place. They treat us like shit. They don't care about us. Wah wah wah! Some of them remind me of Glimmer from my last job.

What makes it funny is how many people on one hand complain about people scamming the company about an injury to get accommodations and on the other can't believe the company would want the diagnosis of what is wrong with you as well as the recovery recommendation.

It reminds me of another co-worker from the last job. Bat, because she was bat shit crazy, "hurt" herself. She tripped over a rope between 2 stanchions, caught herself, and finished her shift without complaining. She never fell to the floor. It was more of a little jerking motion like catching yourself on a patch of ice. The next day she called out of work sick. And teh next. On day 3 she went to HR with a Dr. note putting her on medical leave. She managed to get a Doctor to say she had a whiplash concussion and couldn't work. The last job had both short and long term disability unlike my current one. Bat's mom is a nurse and managed to get a Doctor to sign off on this diagnosis. Bat forgot that a few co-workers live in teh same area as her. See her running around, literally at times, every week. Yet she couldn't work because of her whiplash concussion. It never stopped her from partying. But she couldn't work. Finally, after a couple of months, HR decided to call shenanigans and have her see a doctor of their choosing for a diagnosis. Bat quit that day.

There are a lot of people at the new job on accommodations that seem very suspect. One guy can't perform several duties because of his shoulder. Yet that doesn't stop him from hunting, and that is the shoulder his rifle slams into. Nor does it stop him spending his days off speeding around on an ATV or skidoo. But he has to be accommodated.

Personally, I do think HR is wrong to ask for the diagnosis. They should have a doctor they send people to for a second opinion. A lot of these scammers would be caught if they did.

If people really hate the workplace as much as they say then they need to find another job and quit!

Suicide Squad

I am watching Suicide Squad again. It got panned by a lot of people but I just don't see what their problem is. Maybe they expect an Oscar style movie?

The action is great. The graphics are great. The characters are great. The story is good. The acting is from ok to great. What isn't to like?

Jared Leto should have had more of a role! Fuck you. He was fantastic in the movie but the focus is supposed to be the Squad and not The Joker.

WTF is up with Enchantress and the dancing? Who the fuck really cares? Does it make the movie suck? No.  While it is kind of stupid it doesn't detract that much from the movie.

Ok, I do agree, Captain Boomerang and the pink unicorn was pretty fucked up but it does have some comedic value.

Will Smith is FANTASTIC as Deadshot.

Margot Robbie is an awesome Harley Quinn....

... and ...

Joker should not have been the focus of the 1st Suicide Squad  movies. A big Fuck You to all the whiners that say that. He should be the main villain in the next one. :)  I feel like they have played all of us. Yes, he was a main focus in this one but god damn he would be a great main focus in the next one. :)
