LIKE A BLACK FLY IN YOUR CHARDONNAY

At the time of writing this the amount of money that the United States of America owes is upwards of $14.5 trillion. I owe this establishment called Bank of AMERICA less than $1,000 and am threatened to be sued. Ironic?

SELF SERVICE

If you can't leave a decent tip for great service, then go to f*** yourself!

THE SILENT TREATMENT

Everyone, if you are gonna make plans with a guy or girl and then for whatever reason you decide to break those plans, then please for Pete's sake at least have the decency to call or text and let that guy/girl know. I don't understand why you think simply not ever texting or calling back is the appropriate way to handle the situation. Do you think guys/girls won't understand the reason you can't follow through with the plans you made? Or that we won't be able to handle the disappointment? Because I have got news for you - you aren't that cool - they can handle it. Did you not want to make plans in the first place? If so, then why give out your number? Why not just say no to start with? Hell, make up a lie. Tell them you have a boyfriend or girlfriend already or that you are a lesbian or gay, something, anything. 'Cause if you give someone your number and make plans with them, guess what? They are probably gonna call you and expect you to at least have the common decency to call or text them back and let them know what is going on.

NEON ENVOY

So Mayor Rhodes is heading to China to promote business, huh? That is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard. What are we going to sell them? T-shirts, rides on the big wheel, and souvenirs? What are they going to do here? Take the place of the Mexicans? Maybe he just wants to curry favor for when China calls in all the bonds they've bought so when we default he'll have a head start on the ass-kissing of his new bosses.
