Who Gets a New Car for Christmas?

by on Friday, December 28th, 2012

All month long we have been forced to watch car commercials suggesting that giving someone a brand new luxury car is the perfect Christmas gift. Now, I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to spend that kind of money on a fucking Christmas present, I don’t care how hot the bitch might be. I can see spending a couple grand on something like diamonds or a vacation to someplace exotic. But i’m not dropping fifty grand on a new car for a woman as a Christmas gift.

For another thing, I think that is kind of cheesy. You should buy a car because you need a car and its time to buy a new one, regardless of whether it is Christmas or anniversary or whatever. Buying a car should be for the sake of buying a car. Giving a gift should be something unrelated to a basic necessity like daily transportation.

Do you know anyone who gave a car or got a car as a Christmas gift – ever? I would really like to know how many people think that is OK and actually do it.

Falling Leaves and Acorns

by on Thursday, October 11th, 2012

This morning there was enough breeze that the leaves are starting to fall off the trees in my neighborhood and blow across everyone’s yards. I have a lot of trees in the yard – both front yard and back yard, so I spend a lot of time raking those fucking leaves up every year. I think I pulled about 40 huge plastic leaf bags full from just the back yard last year.

The asshole county landfill has decided that plastic trash bags and plastic leaf bags are a burden on the landfill, so you are not allowed to bring leaves and yard waste to the landfill in plastic bags anymore. You have to use brown kraft paper bags – which suck ass if they get wet because then the bottom falls out and all the fucking leaves get dumped right back out on the street or the yard – or worse, in the trunk of your fucking car. Who’s bright idea was that?
