If you ordered something on December 23 and it didn’t arrive on December 24th, and you’re mad– then you’re an idiot. I don’t care if you paid express shipping or not–with all of the myriad of businesses offering free shipping at the ‘last minute’, you have to realize that there’s going to be a backlog… everyone and their dog forgetting something until the last minute— here’s a novel concept.. I heard it years ago when I was small — it’s called ‘if you snooze, you lose.’ You don’t have to be a cranky old person to get that– you just have to have common sense. Refund the shipping charges? Yes, I can see that. Give the idiots that didn’t order their stuff in time gift cards for their stupidity? No. I don’t enjoy it when people get rewarded for their own bad choices– it tends to beget more bad choices.
Reality shows are not reality– those doofbags of any flavor are paid to project an image, and paid WELL to project an image. They also have wording in their contracts to not be stupid in public–because it makes the TV network look bad. If they violate that (no matter what was said or done or if you agree or not that what they said was stupid– it’s the network’s perception that matters), then they get canned. It’s in their contract, thus have to follow it. Duh, it’s a contract.
Viral videos, no one cares. Really. Happened to catch a ‘what we wasted time on in 2013’ show in the middle of the night during a feeding– we hadn’t heard of most of what they were talking about and really couldn’t care any less. I don’t have time for that garbage.
and lastly? football.
Don’t take a knee, boys. Finish the playing out until the very bitter end. Running off 2 minutes of clock by taking a knee is the coward’s way out… and pushing and shoving is for the playground, not the playing field. Grow up.
