The Pub / Re: "Typical French a**hole"

it was the Americans that were loud, fat, and demanding.

Hey...I resemble that remark...I mean resent  ;D

Of course, the problem is that in the touristy places, the waiters etc really ARE jerks, and in a lot of the shops near touristy areas the customer service is HORRIBLE. Ya just gotta go a little further out, is all.
Same here in the States, and not to just the foreign tourisrts, but Americans as well.
My girlfriend's sister was in town for xmas and she works in a restaurant in Times Square in NYC.  She was telling us how foreign people come in all the time and don't speak English and how they're rude if you don't understand THEM.  She was saying how when they do that, she just walks away.  She was b****ing about how French people smell and get all rude when you can't understand them.  I was thinking to myself, "Americans are the same, except we wear tons of nasty smelling perfume and think the world is made for us."  She was annoying the piss out of me, ruined my night, unfortunately.
I pretty much think a**holes are going to be anywhere you go.  Americans are a special kind of a**hole with the "come to our country, speak English or die, follow OUR traditions, blah blah blah" attitude.

guaranteed to send a chill down my spine

"honey, lets go shopping"
At least she invites you, huh?  She still actually wants to do "things" with you, yeah? But either way, that's a strange fear.

I don't know what caused my fear of heights because I used to climb trees all the time when I was a kid.  Me and my friends would climb up probably a hundred feet sometimes too...I never fell or slipped.  Must've just been born out of fear.

I don't have a fear of heights, but a fear of falling from heights.  I don't know why, but I guess that's always been one of mine.  I don't like standing near railings or anything, ESPECIALLY when people are around.  I just have this fear that someone is going to come up behind me and throw me over the edge.

I also don't like deep and dark water where you can't see below the surface.  Freaks me out for some reason.

And, they don't make me freeze up but they make me cringe and shiver: spiders and centipedes.  <shivers>

My Otter Creek Copper Ale clone kit should be sitting my front steps at home as we speak. Hopefully I can brew my first beer on Monday  ;D

ahh otter creek copper. I once got radically drunk on boiler makers made with copper ale and jamesons. not a good idea.
Yeah, sounds gross.  I had a boiler maker with Midwest's Scottish ale once which had a slight smokey/peat flavor and aroma.  Not sure what kind of whiskey is was, but since I don't really like whiskey it was gross.

Thanks for sharing, that was quite an amazing story.

I plan to do a breakfast stout at some point.  See if I can find the time and energy...

Love Carlin, love Bill Hicks, love Louis CK.  Carlin is like the Granddad of them all, but I don't think Carlin was really doing his most recent style of comedy, with the questioning of the govt, anti-religion, anti-politics, etc. type comedy until Bill Hicks took that leap.  And Carlin credited Bill Hicks often for the influence Bill had on us all.  Hicks is a little abrasive, I think for a 13 year old, but hey, the truth really does hurt sometimes.

So I wasn't just imagining that...

Hey, this was locked yesterday, how'd it get unlocked? And why'd it get locked in the first place?

I have a couple a-hole coworkers, mainly old windbags.  I just ignore them.  They can say whatever the hell they want about me, doesn't change the fact that they're old bats.  But if it came down to it being a serious problem, I'd confront them.  And if that doesn't help, go to the boss.  If your boss doesn't do anything after you've confronted him, that's a major problem.  You can't just "try to ignore him".  That's bullsh*t.

Been celebrating it every day, for years.  8)

What a trendsetter!  Next thing you know there will be a thumb ring day too.   ;)
I never did understand the thumb ring thing...what's the point?  I guess I don't understand wearing any jewelry, so take that as you will...

That sucks man, sorry about it.  That's really neat she used to say "I love you".
