Having daughter drive backwards into her grandmas Honda Odyssey, right after having the rear bumper on her car replaced, painted etc.
The drivers side sliding door is needing repaint, hopefully can be pulled vice new skin. Wife and I are bitter.. Right before Christmas, and it will be out of pocket. No more damn insurance claims.

I hear you. 2 weeks ago, the wife and I are driving to Texarkana for a wedding. IN KC, we get rear ended on the interstate, and then the jack ass takes off. We try and follow him, we lose him. So now my rear bumper, my plastic rear bumper is shoved into the tailpipe, and is starting to melt. I figure, we need to turn around ang go back home as we are only 3 hrs from home. I didn't want to get 10 hrs from home with a car on fire. SO, now do we get to pay the $500 deductable round the holidays, I missed my buddies wedding.
People suck

Actually, the manager that closed and opened my first two shifts is a little gal. Pretty, but dumber than sandbags. She is trying to explain how to sweep and mop to me and she point to the two dry mops sitting on floor and she says I could use those but they don't fit in the mop bucket! Nope, those are dry mops , for dry floors!

Monotone instructors that can’t see when their class is drifting off.

Said goodbye to my friend today of 17 years as he crossed the bridge where he can run and play again.

I held him to the very end and cried like a baby.

Hurts now just to type this.
