Some quickies...

Not gonna believe what happened?

My husband's spare laptop crapped out on me. I'm thinking summertime does not want me to be attached to the hip of my precious like wintertime. So now I stand hoovering over my husband waiting for him to get off his desktop so I can spill as much as I can.

I had decided to wait a bit on fixing my precious since we had a spare. I'll be responsible and not use up money right now.

uhmphf.

**************

While on the way to work the other day while sitting in traffic, two ambulances were making it's way through traffic to get to the hospital a couple of off ramps down. The first one passed. The second one passed and as I looked in my rear view mirror, I noticed a douchebag car following close as to not be stuck in traffic. Like I said. DOUCHEBAG.

Guess what?

That second ambulance stopped. The EMT got out. In the middle of the freeway...(remember, traffic so no cars were moving)...and gave that car friggin hell. NO JOKE. The EMT came toward the car who had stopped (and was probably pooping his pants a little) and told him "Are you f*cking crazy? Put your window down....beep beep beep more stuff I didn't hear"

The owner of the car put his window down just a crack. (Chicken)

I think all the cars actually applauded the EMT for 'checking' this guy at the "are you a dumb ass curb".

I know, that might have been a little dangerous and the whole thing lasted maybe 1 minute or so. But man, that made my day.

One for the good people...and nothing for the douchebag.

*************

I'm a little excited. As I work in a restaurant I don't work normal consistent days/hours. So when I get two days off in a row, it's rare and exciting. It's like summer school a little bit. The whole one day of school work is actually one week of school work...blah blah.

One day gone from the restaurant can bring A LOT of changes. So when you miss a lot of consistent days it's 'interesting' always coming back.

It just so happens that my boss decided to give me off Tuesday so my Sunday, Monday day off thing turned into 3 friggin days off...THAT folks is a long vacation in restaurant world.

*************

I need to log off now...my husband's stare as I nervously and quickly finish this so he can continue his normal computer geeky rituals...

So if you don't see me around this week. You all know why.

I absolutely love how the EMT did that! LOVE it!!!

Some people are such idiots.

Three days off in a row? Woot???

K said...

Sorry about your computer - that sucks.

Enjoy your time off.

Mighty M said...

Enjoy your time off!! Hurray for the EMT too - what a jerk that other person was!

distractinglybombastic said...

Holy shitaki mushrooms, apparently while I was "sleeping" for three months Rambler went and got 182 followers! Good grief!

Anyways, I also applaud the EMT guy. I actually think there should be a new contingent of people in eact city...the douchebag police, and maybe this EMT could get a job on the side ;)

ELAY said...

whoa.. sorry bout ya computer man.

Rachel said...

I would have loved to see that EMT do that! Awesome! Sorry about your laptop troubles. I hope you can steal some computer time away from the hubby.

Shan said...

Three days off and no computer of your own?!? That's just wrong! Practically cruel and inhuman... somebody should call the ACLU so we can get this thing fixed, stat!

At least that's how I'd be feeling.

Erin said...

That EMT story is hilarious! I hope that guy learned a lesson.

And I'm sorry about your precious! SO frustrating. Enjoy your time off of the computer... :)

WhisperingWriter said...

Woohoo for the EMT. That rocks.

Fiauna said...

Way to go, EMT guy! You give it to him!

lagirl/sweet tea said...

Those kind of people give Douche Bags a bad name.

Karen said...

There are few things in the world worse than losing your internet access

Well, I guess there are more than a few, but not many!

Kristina with a K said...

I don't know how you're doing it. No internet?! I'd die!

It's kind of like when the power goes out and you have to bust out candles and I always think "How did they do it back in the olden days?" Is "olden" even a word?

Kathy B! said...

Enjoy your surprise time off!!

And yay for that EMT!! WOO HOO!!! That's the best thing I read all day.

Controlling My Chaos said...

Love the EMT story. I wish I could have been there.

pan x 8 said...

Good for that EMT and I love days off - my husband had fri off for the 4th an we packed that 3 day weekend so full he needed a vacation from the vacation!!

resplendentlife said...

I'm so glad the EMT told that douchebag where to go.....though, there wasn't anyone in the ambulance was there?

Hi Rambler *waving* Missed Ya!!

The Blonde Duck said...

Kudos to the EMT! People like that should rot in hell.

Tooj said...

What a great job of the EMT. But question....did his ambu have a dying passenger? LOL BAD EMT if he did. LOL Just askin'.....

MammaDucky said...

That is so awesome...the EMT, not the computer issue. It's a pet peeve of mine to see drivers not yield to ambulences. Drives me crazy.

Life of a Stepmama said...

From SITS, love your blog!!! Love the EMT, so glad he said something. That always makes me so mad, why does that guy think he is any more important then any of the other people stuck in the traffic?? Hope you get your computer fixed!

Kalei said...

hahaha....a little lesson in "sharing" something to show lil rambler from Papa! =) Chas just got a new desktop pc that is killer awesome (a lil jealous- since violet climbed on my desk and stepped on the keyboard....letters R, G, B and Z are not functioning without a fight. Damn! I am stealing his keyboard.

Kalei said...

Oh and thank you for telling us about the EMT, cause sometimes I just wanna shove a lightbulb up those douchebags behinds till it lights up. =)

Aubrey said...

Dang your husband and his geeky rituals! I curse him! LOL Doesn't he know you need to blog!!!???

Ron said...

So Not Mom-a-licious said...

I love douchebags...only for the simple reason that they give me pleasure in looking like an ass when stuff like that happens! I totally would have gotten out of my car and did a happy dance.

Missing you!

LOVE that EMT!

OliveStreetStudio said...

toooo funny. I hate people that jump traffic like that. Like those guys that ride the shoulder when all is a parking lot.

FYI: My hubby startes over me when I'm on his computer too. boo!

Megan said...

Wow! That EMT is awesome! I've never seen anything like that ever happen! Love it!

Congrats on getting 3 days off! I bet that feels GREAT!! =D

(The hubs and I only have one computer so we have to share. It's pure torture sometimes. LOL)

Vivienne said...

I love it!!!! That almost never happens, and it is even more rare that you get to see it!(as rare as 3 days off in a row in the restaurant biz, apparently...)

One of my friends saw a jackass making unsafe passes in a no passing lane on a 2 lane highway. Jackass almost had a head-on collision with a HP officer. Jackass received a new oraffice with a citation book...
