This should go in the "Things I Hate" list but I just got off the phone with Jimmy John's (the sandwich place) trying to place an order for delivery. Hey, somebody deserves a gold star for putting non-English speakers on the telephone!

"...and no tomato"

"Pickle?"

"Nah, no tomtato!"

"Oh, no tomato"

*writes down xtra tomato*






that's usually how my orders end up. My bad luck with food orders is world famous.

Yeah, there's this guy at my nearest Subway that makes me cringe everytime I realize its him that will be making my sandwich. Dude is completely clueless and cannot speak English AT ALL. I'm really not trying to be on any uppity, immigrant hate here or anything - but if one of the primary aspects of your job is speaking to and communicating with the general public, speak the effing language. I literally have to wave my arms and gesture wildly to get something that sorta resembles the sandwich I want. Apparently, in his language, no cheese means extra cheese. Every. Fucking. Time.

Wait a minute...hold up, here. You don't get cheese on your sandwich? THAT, my friend, is almost as un-American as illiteracy. Shame on you...do people throw red paint at you as you leave the Subway sandwich shop?

But c'mon...Charlie Daniels? He was the Kid Rock of his day.

This is where Montana would say something like "get away from those city bus fumes and breathe some fresh country air." Charlie Daniels is the real deal, city boy!

i NEVER get cheese on my sandwiches, especially from subway. something about their cheese just rubs me the wrong way.

i live like 40 feet from a subway so, needless to say id go in there a lot (and steal their wireless!) until they guy behind the counter started recognizing me and my sandwich. thats creepy.

Do they have to make vitamins taste so bad? Bleurgh...And do English people really need to pronounce it "vid-ah-mins"? Try a little harder, huh? We're just trying to help... I've been poisoned by those cat photos - I read Aneg's post and it rearranged itself into: IM IN UR SBWAY STLNG UR WRLSSES! edit: outside of Mark Lanegan's mom I bet I've got the most exhaustive Mark Lanegan record collection going...man, does this guy have pipes...

Is he Czech?

'No' means 'yeah' over there, you know.

No, for real.

Somehow, I doubt this guy's Czech.

Great, now I want a Pilsner Urquell...way to go!

I may be (probably) retarded, but why do shoes end up on telephone wires?

Lots of times, depending on the neighborhood, they represent gang territories.

Anybody seen Who Killed The Electric Car? It's up next in the Seamus household (my wife is less than interested).

i've seen a little of this, it's in my netflix queue too. watched JESUS CAMP last nite, holy shit those Evangelical motherfuckers are gonna fuck up this whole country with their fundamental right wing mix of jesus and politics. they are scare the shit out of me. be afraid, be very afraid.

i just had Opart (the one on Cermak) for lunch. yum. any of you guys ever have that dessert they have that's just coconut milk, sugar, and bananas served hot? wow.

i just bummed a menthol off of a friend here and now i feel like i'm at Jimmy's on Lincoln Highway looking at strippers with c-section scars.

1. anna nicole's baby's daddies should have just gone on Maury and gotten it over with. 2. Reason I don't gamble muxh? losing $20 would make me more upset than winning $20 would make me happy. 3. that said maybe I'll bet on the cavs heat game on sunday. who do you like? 4. One of the folks I'm travelling with says his last name is on a government watch list cause it is the same as a suspected terrorist. I told him I'd meet him at the gate. 5. fucking mgm grand charges $35 to use the fitness center. better by for the whole stay otherwise they can shove it. but nothing cures a hangover like a short run on the treadmill then steam,pool, jacuzzi, shower combo

Ticky tack - so soft I couldn't believe the kid was weeping on the court & had to be wheeled off...must've had a partial tear or disconnect that a gentle bump completed the damage. In other words: just anotha' NBA sissy!
