I don't care who you are...that's funny

A Starbucks customer wearing a Trump shirt was given her drink with the name BUILD A WALL instead of her own name and that was what was called out as they do at Starbucks and all the employees laughed at her.

If you are stupid enough to still be wearing a political shirt well after the election is over you deserve all the ridicule you have coming. What were you thinking woman!!!! I think it is even funnier though because it is Trump shirt and he is such a train wreck in process yet this lady still supports him. Train wrecks are quite the spectacle to watch but not so much if you're on the train and there in lies the rub, we are all on the train this time.

All Burnt Up

All that is left of our Oiler sitting in the yard after the accident, explosion and inferno on the freeway.

1350 Gallon tank impacted with center divider. Very tall center divider at that point of the freeway.

Puncture hole that fed the diesel fueled fire.

So hot it melted the rims into puddles of aluminum.

Driver got out OK but is in the hospital. Eyewitnesses said one or more of the rear wheels blew apart and the driver with only some control at 65 MPH steered the several ton oiler over into the center divider to stop it. If divider had been lower the truck might have flipped over the divider and the outcome might have been much worse.

Just trying to be helpful is all....

So a co-worker starts talking about his sick wife and how they have spent over $50,000 on fertility treatments and being the asshole that I am I ask him...

"So you want me to give it a try"

Thank You Chris Cornell - Rest in Peace

Abstract Thought

After the sale of the company I work for we have been building the accounting data base for the entire company spread amongst about a half a dozen accountants and admin people. We are a $500M a year in revenue company and we are building the data base by hand. This is nuts. Sometimes I feel like George Clooney amongst the rest of the convicts as their understanding of abstract thought sometimes is lacking.  Most of the other convicts in the group are the center convict just going along for the ride and not putting to much thought in it, though a few are the left convict who think they know more than they do and are proved lacking daily. I'm not sure where to categorize the software guy. He's knowledgeable but can't seem to remember all the intricacies of his own product. I've come across several items where there is problems and then he remembers them. He'll tell me one way to do something and when I do it I find a problem with his way. I would think a man who does several if not more installations each year would have this down pat. He's been with the software development company for 20+ years.
