Sorry

Sorry I’ve been forever gone…

It’s crunch time for the wedding, my taxes are due (to the tune of $3500.00, last week my accountant got ‘er done, the amount was due last April… grrr.  I’d sell my soul, but I signed that away years ago.  Not sure what to sell to pay this sucker off before I start getting nasty-ass letters with fines and penalties) and I’m training new staff at the shop.

I’m living on stress right now and have nothing to say that’s not bitchy.
I’ll be back when I’m in a better mood (don’t hold yer breath… this may take a little while)

Public Safety ~or~ Abuse of Power?

UNION CITY, Ga. – A McDonald’s employee spent a night in jail and is facing criminal charges because a police officer’s burger was too salty, so salty that he says it made him sick.

Kendra Bull was arrested Friday, charged with misdemeanor reckless conduct and freed on $1,000 bail.

Bull, 20, said she accidentally spilled salt on hamburger meat and told her supervisor and a co-worker, who “tried to thump the salt off.”

On her break, she ate a burger made with the salty meat. “It didn’t make me sick,” Bull told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

But then Police Officer Wendell Adams got a burger made with the oversalted meat, and he returned a short time later and told the manager it made him sick.

Bull admitted spilling salt on the meat, and Adams took her outside and questioned her, she said.

“If it was too salty, why did (Adams) not take one bite and throw it away?” said Bull, who has worked at the restaurant for five months. She said she didn’t know a police officer got one of the salty burgers because she couldn’t see the drive-through window from her work area.

Police sent samples of the burger to the state crime lab for tests.

City public information officer George Louth said Bull was charged because she served the burger “without regards to the well-being of anyone who might consume it.”

The Most Irreverent Road Trip Comment… Ever

While at a rest stop… I see a small animal in a tree and I’m wondering what it is.
Husb comes out of the restroom, we get in the car and head back out onto highway.
I describe the animal to husb as being squirrel like, but much smaller, with a short pelt. They’re brown with a light stripe.
He’s not sure what it is by my description.
Just then we pass a small animal (road kill) on the highway and he asks:
“Does it look like that… but rounder?”
