I think I just channeled OBB. When I read the above, the first thing that popped into my head was "Better to have Lindt balls than lint balls." Though if I had truly channeled OBB, it would have been lint-y balls. *sigh*
HA! I do call them lint balls! And somehow with my southern accent I manage to give lint two syllables. And believe me, there have been plenty of uncalled for ball references around here since I brought that bag of chocolates into the house.

Not me. I'd run that sucker every day.

Sigh.

OMG, this. Really, I don't get why people do that. It's not just awkward, it's gross. Other people's dirty stuff is gross.

I've done it at places that you sit yourself especially when there are no tables open because it's packed. I just grab it and wait for them to clean it. Other wise you'll wait all day because someone else is gonna take it from you and sit at the dirty table.


Other than that Idky anyone would do it if there are obvious empty clean tables.

OK. I have three pages of stuff to cover so bear with me:

w_s - I love the psych gifs. I will be looking into more of those! I LOVE THAT SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Saria - I love that you used funnest. I REFUSE to use 'more fun' because it does nothing for the funnest of fun stuff.

Thelio - I was told that I must have been french in a past life once too! It was about.... 9 years ago now, but I totally remember the guy trying to explain why. He said something about black french... I dunno.


But the best for me was when I was asked if I was Brazilian on a plane once. That made my YEAR! If I recall correctly, they asked to take my picture.

I run my dishwasher once a year or so just to make sure it's still working. It's basically brand new after 9 years.

I heart my dishwasher. Although I am one of those weirdos who practically cleans all the dishes before I put them in there.

I really think it's possible that my boss is losing his mind. Today is one of his "days" where he is overly clingy, hovering, calling me to his office just to ask a question (that he could have asked when he CALLED ME ON THE PHONE and asked me to come to his office) - coming over to our work area to ask seemingly mindless questions, questioning procedures we've had in place for years and years (not as in "is this effective" but rather "how do we do X")

I wish I could feel compassion about it, but it makes my job harder to have to hold his hand and, well, he's annoying.

ETA: he's not annoying BECAUSE of this, to be clear - he's annoying in general AND it's possible I have PMS making this MUCH worse right now

There's 16 tons of bad reality tv out there but Honey Boo Boo is just so repulsive to me. It's hard to be worse than the starving people on Survivor or the useless human beings on the Kardashians, but the Boo Boo clan has managed it.
I tried to watch it again since so many people on the HBB thread seem to like it so much. It's revolting.

In addition to being slow as effin molasses, NC won't let me 'like' things half the time. It's getting on my last nerve.

The bold is what really gets me. I've never worked in a seat-yourself restaurant, and have never really encountered the situation you described when dining out myself, except for when I had coffee at Cafe du Monde in New Orleans. Still, we waited to the side of the table while the employee cleaned it for us.

I guess because I've been in the industry my whole life, I'm conscious of the fact that it's pretty rude (someone has to clean around you now), the staff is less likely to notice that you're a new client (you know, with no menus and half full water glasses), but mostly because you never now if the people before you sneezed/coughed/spit/threw up/bled all over the table you are now sitting at. It's just gross. People are gross.

I dunno.

Davin just lined up a bunch of his trucks and kissed them night-night.
------------------
My husband left a pair of his jeans on the floor of the living room. I heard the kitten scratching at them. When I got up to see what she was doing, I saw a pile of poop inside the jeans! Gross! (secretly, I'm glad that she pooped on his pants and not the carpet, though...it was a lot o' poo! Much easier to wash the jeans than scrub the carpet.) I swear, that cat is cute but a little...not bright. I left all the doors open to the room with her litter box, so why she didn't go in there, I have no idea.
