i heard the worst joke today.
"what's the fastest animal?"
"chicken. what's the second fastest?"
"an ethiopian chasing a chicken."
i said "chickens aren't fast."
what else would you say to a joke like that? first of all, it's absolutely awful... i'm not one for offensive jokes. second of all, i still don't get the chicken thing. they aren't fast and it's a stupid joke.
"how does it feel to be the minority?"
how many times do i get that question? ( i don't) well, i got it today after everyone realized that i was the only caucasian working. it is true though, that here in the heart of redneck alabama, i was the only white person working [at this particular restaurant, naturally]. one of the cooks is now selling fireworks. one of those places on the side of the road with the big signs advertising fireworks, you know what i'm talking about. so for the past two days of chronic boredom and a trunk full of fireworks, we've spend a lot of time out back watching the cooks and bus boys run after each other with firecrackers, bottle rockets, and such. they disguise their interest by saying they're showing us.I know we're not supposed to talk about this and the cooks regret letting a waitress in on the information [god forbid] but the cops showed up at the back of the restaurant today about all the fireworks. i don't even know the story, but i know they showed up. they told me not to let any of the other waitresses know, so don't tell anybody.
i don't understand people who drive nissan maximas and seem to refuse to slide the nissan emblem cover over the trunk keyhole. you've probably seen it around. the nissan emblem is used to cover the keyhole and it slides to the left and i have never seen a maxima driver with the keyhole covered. is it really that hard to slide the cover over? it must be if no one does it, but it really pisses me off. don't they know they're throwing their entire car off balance not to mention they're making a decent car look very disorderly. please, if you drive a maxima, spare the rest of us and just cover the keyhole.
