I heard those depressing, Monday morning words from Steve Inskeep again on the way into work – “Cokie Roberts joins us….” Bleh. She shared her “wisdom” with us on the whole sequester thingie, and whether or not it’s a big deal. Well, Cokie, where I work, it means over $7.2 million dollars gets cut out of an already stretched, cut, stretched again, and cut some more budget. Hopefully I’ll still have a job when all is said and done, because I think I’d have to sell my house (and my dogs) if things go in the crapper.
Worse than having to listen to Cokie, though, was that I had to listen to her while I was the third car in line behind a snow plow (note, it wasn’t snowing) that was going 35 mph (downhill – 30 up) for a substantial portion of my drive in.
It took the two idiots ahead of me almost 8 miles to finally make a move and pass (at which point, about eight of us made a break for it). Annoying. What was it George Carlin said? “Anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anybody going faster is a maniac.”
Except I think they’re pretty much all idiots. If they aren’t idiots while driving, they immediately turn into idiots when they step foot inside a grocery store. But don’t get me started.
If I lived in an area where a giant sinkhole could – suddenly and without warning – open up and suck my bedroom in while I was sleeping, I’d have even more difficulty sleeping than I do already. I mean, the bugs down there in Florida are bad enough, but, shit. I think maybe Ross Perot was wrong about where they giant sucking sound was coming from.
Oh well, time to get back to that giant suck hole known as work.
