Barking Dogs

August 24, 2011 // Posted in Home, Living, People (Tags: , , , , ) |  Comments Off on Barking Dogs

There is a dog down at the end of my street that has been barking for a solid hour. What is up with that? Did the idiots who live in that house just put the dog outside and leave the house so they are not hearing this? Or are they sitting inside with gritted teeth waiting for the damn dog to shut the hell up like the rest of the neighborhood?

Sew It or Toss It?

I have a jacket that I liked a lot but when I put it on, I found out that the buttons are missing. How the hell can all the buttons go missing off a jacket? I mean, really. How does that happen?

I like the jacket. I know that I didn’t pull off all those fucking buttons and I have no idea where they would be at. So I either have to go to some store and buy a bunch of buttons and sew them on, or I can just toss the jacket and say fuck it.

Kool Aid

Today’s kids seem to be drinking carbonated sodas as their daily drink and refreshment. I know that when I was a kid we rarely drank sodas. I don’t think my parents ever even bought any soda at the grocery store to keep at home.

We were allowed to drink milk, orange juice, Kool Aid and iced tea. As a treat we might get lemonade or apple juice. I think the only time we ever drank sodas was when we were taken to McDonald’s for a treat of a hamburger, fries and coke.

That was a big deal and only for special occasions. Now, kids eat at McDonald’s and other fast food places every day. No wonder they are fat.

No Phone Books

If anyone knows how to get word to the publisher of the Yellow Pages and local phone books that keep showing up on my porch or in my driveway, please let me know. I do not use these books and I don’t like the idea that so much paper, gasoline and manpower is wasted producing these monsters that go right into the trash and clogs up the landfills.

I use the internet to find phone numbers and addresses. The only problem that I have is trying to the cell phone numbers of people. I wish there was a way to get cell phone numbers, but when people still have to pay for each minute their phone is in use, I can understand them not wanting to waste minutes on nuisance calls.
