I just wanted to share…

Me: “Looking for fettuccine, can’t find it.”
Cashier Lady: “Wuts dat?”
Me: [sad] “Fat sketi.”
Cashier Lady: “Aisle 3, all the way back, on the left.”

This is why I speak poorly; I don’t like repeating myself. Nobody can understand me if I speak properly, so why bother? It just wastes my time… I have to speak a language that they can understand or it becomes a clusterfuck. While I do tend to be a Grammar Nazi and try to be proper, I spend most of my life in a state of being so horribly frustrated with other peoples’ stupidity that I don’t bother. They can’t tell the difference anyway. They can’t even understand it…

  1. Commercial: “Taste more like real Dr. Pepper”
    Me: … than what? Sewage water?

    First rule of advertising. Never make complete sentences. Then you can not be sued for what the sentence says. Why you might ask. Because you can say that it means something different than the lawsuit implies. All you got to do as a advertiser is complete the sentence.

    I have had the same conversation in a store about “Fat Sketti.” Just got to shake your head and walk away. I call it the Thumper Theory. Thumper is the rabbit from the movie Bambi. Thumper’s mom tells him that “If you do not have anything nice to say then do not say anything at all.” So many times I have been in a situation and just said Thumper theory out loud and walked away from a bad conversation.

    Cheers!

    1. One can absorb only so much of the world’s trash before letting it back out. I am not a dumpster and I deserve better. I’m much a proponent of Thumper Theory. Sometimes, the human junk need a good beating. I know it doesn’t do any good, but I don’t deserve to be the victim of bottling it up. It relieves my stress, and that’s a good thing, for me; the only one that matters.
