Trying to get into my work garage this morning. We have the little RFID thingy in the windshield to make the gate/door go up when you pull near it. Dude in front of me pulls up to it, but not close enough for the RFID to register.
And just sat there.
After 3 minutes and traffic stacking up behind me, I start honking at him. He just sat there.
Honk again, as I want to try to educate him how this thing works. He throws it in park.
He's not mad, but gets out clearly not knowing what to do. I tell him that he needs to move forward for it to work. He gets back in his car and (I'm not kidding) pulls 2 inches forward. Gate/door doesn't open.
I proceeded to find somewhere else to park for the day.
Yeah Illinois sucks to drive in for the most part. Get me by the Mississippi and its a little prettier but Iowa people scare me.
My stomach hurts from a Chicken Gyro, if I wanted the stomach ache I would've gone for the real Gyro meat.
Sure I just had a great workout. Sure I'm doing better everyday, but why do I get the jimmy legs and dry heaves when I really push myself? Granted its probably 80° in my studio apt on the 6th floor of an old ass building, but my god I feel like I've got the DTs sometimes. It's too hot and I went too hard.

Ok, so I was totally against 'skinny jeans' until recently, when I realized I was aging myself by continuing to parade around in baggy pants I finally bit the bullet, threw a bunch of baggy Lucky brand jeans in a bag for the Salvation Army, and went clothes shopping.
I ended up trying on a bunch of jeans, and stumbled upon 'Seven boot cut jeans';Hot damn they fit nice! So, I bought several pairs, and headed to 'Express men', and Banana Republic; where I grabbed some nice tailored fit shirts
Now here I am wearing tight jeans, and tailored shirts; all the while feeling ten years younger
Now if it wasn't for these damned grey hairs in my beard
In light of a recent current event, I realized that in my neighborhood that I have lived in for 15 years now, I drive past two streets on my way to my house, and I haven't a clue what their names are. I don't know the name of the street my brother has lived on for 5 years, and I go there every week, and the same with my sisters house too. I do not know the phone number of my place of work, If I lost my cell phone I wouldn't be able to call in sick, and I don't know the address either.
I am however a pretty smart guy.
It go down in the DM
there are two types of sh*tty drivers.
Type A: The ones who are sh*tty at pretty much everything they do. They usually bomb around in a crappy Geo Metro or neglected MKIII Jetta, or a wanna-be drift car. They cut people off, don't signal, on/off gas inconsistently, fly through parking lots, etc. Usually found wandering the parking lots of 7-11 at midnight or the local "Sav-On" beverage place that sells 40s.
Type F: The ones who drive really nice cars, like the $100,000 MB SUV, or any number of luxury cars and/or SUVs. They ignore the concept of left lane to pass, speed limits are not to be exceeded (as opposed to being the minimum limit), don't keep in their lanes when turning, signal the wrong way, drive 2 miles with the blinker on before they finally change lanes, ignore "Yield" signs and end up driving 10mphs under the speed limit. Usually found clogging up the entrance of Costco because they think they'll find a spot up front.
There's what I was talking about. It's not "not safe for consumption", it's actually "not for human consumption", so it's probably fine. If dogs can eat it then we can. I think they just don't want students making ice cream and old fashioneds or whatever. Of course I say this as somebody who eats food that seagulls have touched.
