Senioritis has hit me. With just 5 classes left for my Masters, I’ve hit that “i don’t give a fuck” mentality…not good. Anyways, now I sit here in Starbucks listening to Slipknot’s The Heretic Anthem (if you’re 555 then I’m 666) while completing a paper for school. Speaking of Slipknot, I was finally able to see them in concert along with Kings 810 and Korn.
Korn fkn killed it, Kings was..eeh. I couldn’t believe the amount of skinheads or wannabe skinheads that were at the concert. I suppose that’s to be expected, but I didn’t realize we had so many in our area. Being a 270lb mexican surrounded buy bald white guys, I kinda stood out. That’s the great thing about music though, it can bring people from all demographics together.
So while sitting here at Starbucks, there have been a few parents come in with their kids. The parents are bundled up with coats while the kids are coming in just wearing tshirts. Mind you it’s 53 degrees and not in the 70s. I fkn hate when parents don’t care what their kids are wearing. I don’t have kids, but if i did, little jimmy wouldn’t be wearing fkn shorts in 30 degree weather.
The other thing that pisses me off is when parents give in to their kids or argues with their kids. I was at Kmart last night, and this little girl around 12 was bitching cause her mom wanted her to try on some shoes. The mom was damn near yelling at her to try on the shoes, but the kid kept walking away. Now I get it…it’s Kmart and i imagine it holds the same stigma now as it did when i was a kid. (Your mom shops at kmart) Another kid was screaming and screaming LOUD for this damn toy. Instead of taking the kid to the restroom and laying down the law, this mom said “uuugh, fine here just take it”. I literally looked like Kat Williams in this pic and said “that bitch, is why it’s not your kids fault he is a brat.”
I know people will say that I can’t complain since I don’t have kids and I don’t know how hard it is to be a parent. Believe me, I do understand that..however i’m not a mechanic but I still know you should get your oil changed around 3000 miles.
Let’s talk about Black Friday for a minute. This year BF was bullshit. First off, shitty ass Directv took $200 from my account due to their system screwing up, so i as out that money. Second, where in the hell were the savings? The funny part is some people really thought they were getting a deal due to word play. Example…1 candle is $10. But today for BF you can get 2 candles for $30 with a $10 mail in coupon. lol wtf? Or, buy 2 games get 1 free…that’s awesome till you see the games are like 5 years old lol. Another thing is when Wallyworld has a line for items and bitchass people want to sneak up to the front of the line with only a few minutes left. I had that happen when I was in line over an hour for the xbox 360 $99 deal for my niece. About 2 minutes before they released them, a group of 6 came to the front of the line, but not actually in the line. Anyways, they slowly started to try to cut. People around me were complaining under their breaths about “I dont know why the sales person doesn’t say anything, they see them”, “This is bullshit”, “I waited and if I don’t get one….” Whereas my big mouth yells out “YALL NEED TO TIGHTEN UP THIS MOTHERFUCKIN LINE AND NOT LET THESE MOTHERFUCKERS CUT”. The lady behind me said “thank you so much for saying something…I was going to but-” But nothing lady, you would have just bitched about not getting one and went about your night. It’s funny how white people don’t want to say anything about a black person cutting in line. Me, I don’t care if you’re white, black, green, or purple. You cut in front of me and my $99 xbox 360, you bout to get dealt with.
I love my job, but i love money even more. I don’t know how much longer I can do this with the current amount I’m making. I made about $8000 more when I worked at CADS. Granted I don’t deal with as much bs as I did there but damn $8000 is a lot. The best thing about working at my job is dealing with the kids. Being able to show them some kind of guidance is rewarding. With that being said though, money pays the bills.
….how bout that Bill Cosby
