10:35 pm - Some things just ain't right.
(written at silky's around 5:30 today)

*sigh* this will probably sound sexist, but I honestly don't mean it that way.

As many people know, it is my Friday tradition to hang out at Silky's and eat free wings at happy hour. But, today when I got here, my regular table was taken by twelve middle-aged women who have apparently gathered here to discuss their husbands fuck-ups and swap childbirth experiences (seriously, I just overheard a 5 minute conversation on "where I was when my water broke." They have turned off the TV because it was bothering them.

Worse, one of the women brought her infant daughter along and has seated her alone in a car seat on top of my backup table (like luggage) so she can not be bothered by their second-hand smoke. Never mind the fact that the baby is nöw next to the window that all the smoke in the bar drifts out. I have been relegated to a booth where neither Anna or Karen are my waitress and the new girl that I do have does not understand that just because "spicy curly fries" are not on the menu, that doesn't mean they don't have them.

*sigh* at least I have the new issue of sport truck magazine to drown my sorrows in. Oooh! XM Radio buyer's guide.

Re: repeat after me...

repeat after me...
...babies do not belong at bars.


Wouldn't you just love to be able to kick butt right then? "Hey, lady, give me your id. Here's your warning. If you're caught doing this again, we're taking your kid(s) and forcibly sterilizing you, since you're obviously too stupid to reproduce!"

Um. The line between "bar" and "restaurant with liquor license and smoking section" is basically non-existant. Exposing a baby to undue smoke and leaving a baby "out of the way" make for disturbing trends. But the fact is, you don't know shit about this person and what kind of parent they might be.

You just want to bash on someone based on an easy-to-remember litmus test. I recommend moving on to SUV owners (excluding present company), the military industrial complex, and folks who club baby seals. Write in to the new york times!


P.S. Mav, I empathize. I hate it when the negros and old people take up all the good seats on the bus. The 61C is meant for young hip new economy types, dammit! Talking about their old people and negro people things that don't concern me. At least I can message folks on my smartphone and turn up my mp3 player!

nothing like a good bit of free flowing hostility to start your day with. :-)
