Overheard today

(and it wasn't about one of my students OR about me.)
"That boy don't know which end is up on his own a$$hole."

Thanks to my lovely bride for that jewel.

Tacky News

I am pretty sure I am old now. I just sent a complaint email to one of our local news stations.

They were covering a story about a family rocked by a tragedy this morning. During the coverage they included a couple of really tacky and distasteful bits of video coverage from the scene of drowning of a dad who jumped into the river to pull out his kids who had fallen in the water.

First came the shot of the EMS workers frantically working on a man who would soon be declared dead. I really doubt if any family want that last, tragic moment broadcast for the world? Then the real kicker. they showed a short clip of the kids, not more than 5 or 6 years old, standing off to the side of the chaos and crying their eyes out. It was tasteless.

I sent a short email and got a polite response pretty quickly. That is good, I guess. But still... I know this was real life and the sad occurrence is news worthy. But grow some class when you are picking the video to air, 'kay?

Whoever said

that babies would eventually cry themselves to sleep never met The Little Dude.

Fed? Check.

Clean diaper? Check.

Burped? Mostly.

Spit the rest up? All over me. Check.

Laying with a blanket did the trick? Nope.

Walking the hood surely did, right? Hah! 2 miles. He can cry through that without even breaking a sweat!

He was winding down when the cable installer working next door rang the doorbell. Like I needed another reason to hate the cable Co! Now I have him sitting up,in his baby carrier, watching a ceiling fan.

It isn't working.

But it is something, right? Yep.

To the jackhole in the Honda minivan

Yeah, my kids and I WERE walking right the hell behind you when you threw the minivan into reverse in the school parking lot.

And double yeah, I did knock the shit outta the back end of your car, right next to the brand new, paper dealer's tags.. And I dropped the F Bomb where your kids could hear. So the hell what? Want to learn to drive that damn thing now that you bought it?

'Cause you are single-handedly giving all of the idiot minivan drivers a bad name, you careless shithead.
