I would like to know how an accidental dumpster fire that did hardly any damage got turned and twisted into a possibly news worthy story that is worth hounding people over.

Sincerely, get a life. If that is deserving of a segment, something is horribly wrong.

Sounds like a there-is-no-other-news-lets-make-some-up news story.

SCG, it was just so ridiculous. She didn't want to wait for her drink so she demanded a refund....which she had to wait for because he was ringing up two more people. I know I don't know what kind of day she was having or what she was in such a rush to get to, but she didn't have to treat the guy with such disdain. I don't like the fact that the very busy SB at our Target never has more than one person behind the counter (ever), but I'm certainly not going to berate the one person working like it's their fault.
Hehehe, poetic justice! I don't know why people get so worked up about coffee. I understand people have places to be, but... Yeesh. Some days I'm embarrassed FOR people. And then I get annoyed. But first I'm embarrassed for them.
I'm not sure what's up with the understaffing. Ours is usually like that too. They've become generous for the holiday season, however, and are now staffing two people at once. But usually they pull one of them to another part of the store because they think we don't need that many. >_> Never me, of course. These days I'd love to be pulled over to registers instead, for a little break!

I want it to be 2013 already just so I can watch Korra again. Maybe Bryke will give us a holiday treat and toss out a preview or some bit of news before the year is over.

I'm bored out of my mind and have gotten way too interested in the Brandi Glanville/Leann Rimes Twitter feud.

I am like SO CLOSE to being done with putting together this Islam matrix. Why do I keep getting distracted?

Oh, I know why. Because I left the part about Muhammad's life for last. Omg. This guy has the longest biography ever. It's like 7 pages long in my textbook! For real? I've made a huge mistake. How am I supposed to condense this into a paragraph or two?

Aw. I hope wild life conservationists can help snow leopards before they are completely wiped out. They are such amazing animals.

I have been watching LOK and Avatar with my kids and I'm really enjoying them both. It's funny because my kids never got in to Avatar when it came out.

Do NOT eat a piece of dark chocolate peppermint bark then follow it up a bit later with Bugles. The burp was...not pleasant.

I will try to keep that in mind, but it shouldn't be an issue. The last time I tried to eat a Bugle it didn't go so well. Those things are the debbil.

Hello Balki. It has been so long that we practically feel like perfect strangers.

We (and I am sure everyone else doing the same job) have a large problem with people contacting news stations to give them their interpretation of a call. They hear *parts* on the scanner, and wildly guess at the rest. So many things get blown WAY out of proportion. But yes, no matter how it's twisted, a dumpster fire is reaching.

Sadly, scanner land is a vast and strange place. lol. I can't believe the number of people who sit at home and listen to it, or monitor for breaking news, 24-7.
