No Helmet is No Excuse

August 27, 2012 at 11:00 pmCategory:Bad Stuff | Home and Yard | My Life

On Saturday I saw some kids riding through the neighborhood on a minibike. That was different, because for one thing there aren’t any kids in my neighborhood and for another thing its not legal to ride minibikes on the street with traffic. And these kids were not wearing a helmet, either. I wonder what the hell their parents are thinking by letting them ride a minibike in traffic and not even have on helmets.

I don’t want to be a Debby Downer, but that just seems so irresponsible to me. Kids are precious and although they will do a lot of stupid and dangerous things, it is the parent’s job to make sure they don’t break any laws and that they are kept as safe as possible. Everyone knows that riding a bicycle or a motorcycle is not safe without a helmet. I can’t be mad at the kids for doing it – I blame the parents – and especially if there is any kind of accident and either of those kids gets hurt!

AWFUL Fuckin Coffee!

Most days I make my own coffee in the morning. Like probably half the country, I need a cup of coffee in the morning to wake up and start my day. But when I accidentally oversleep and need to hurry up and get out of here, I am not going to waste those precious 15 minutes making coffee.

So today I was running late and had to hurry up and get out of the house and on the road. I knew that I didn’t have time to make coffee myself. I was sitting at the traffic light by McDonalds and noticed that there was not a single car in the line for the drive through. So I got the bright idea to pull into the Golden Arches and get a quick cup of coffee from the drive through.

Got the coffee, and I don’t usually add sugar or creamer to my coffee, but they gave me some with it. After I got back on the road, I tried to take a sip and almost spit it out. It was fucking AWFUL. At the next light I tried putting some sugar and creamer into it – to help cut the nastiness. It didn’t work. I couldn’t drink that crap. I tossed that shit out the window and had to wait until I got to work to make a fresh cup there.

Never again, McD’s. You might make good french fries but your coffee SUCKS.

Oh shit

My brother and his wife are having the worst money problems. The IRS kept their tax refund to pay off his student loans and they needed the money to fix his car and purchase another vehicle as her car is about to die. I feel so bad for them. He went through school to be able to get a better job and his boss is a shit head. The man promised him that he would be up to twenty dollars and hour by now. One pay raise was supposed to go through last summer, and another one this past January. He hasn’t gotten either one. My brother is the only employee the man has and works his ass off for him.

I hope my tax return comes in soon, because I am going to give them some money to help out. It isn’t much but they really need it more than I do, so I will do what is needed. I know he will try to refuse, but I have no intention of taking no for an answer. I am just going to put the money in an envelope with a letter and then go visit them just to say hi. I will leave the letter in their house right as I leave so he can’t refuse it. I hope he doesn’t act stubborn.

Fuck the IRS

So the IRS offset my damned tax return for my student loans. I am so fucking pissed right now. I needed that money for another car, because mine blew a head gasket. Now I am going to have to go to a buy here pay here lot to get a car and have stupid payments each damned week. I really cannot afford the added expense of another bill to pay. This so totally sucks ass. I realize that I need to pay the student loans back, but how can I do that when I barely make enough to live one, let alone pay a huge monthly payment to them.

Oh well, I guess a new car is ok so long as I can find something I actually like. There are a few car lots near my house with nice vehicles, but I am sure they are going to be too expensive. That means I am going to have to travel into the city and find a lemon lot, or go to Kentucky and see what my friend has on his lot. Sometimes he is good and has a deal, but most of the time he is as bad as most of the other lots. I think it mostly depends on his mood.
