    oohdear. Comparing this with the looks of my husband's currently-broken toe... I would bet on broken. Tape it to the toe next door using some of that stretchy nonstick athletic tape, do a lot of walking, it'll heal faster.

Not just a slow chew but hyper fast chew and mostly with her mouth open. Thought I was going to go nuts. I kept praying that she would be the next one called but nope she was right before me. It was 45 mins of chew, chew, chew,(slobbering sounds) chew, chew, chew, (slobber) chew.....

      Gah.

      The gum chewing woman
      The cud chewing cow,
      look just alike, but different somehow.
      What is the difference?
      I see it all now.
      It's the intelligent look
      on the face of the cow.


      nothing against gum chewers but have some decorum

      and no, I didn't write that. I paraphrased it from one I heard in high school. Do not ask how I remember that crap from 18 years ago but sometimes forget my own name.

        Have you ever bitten that flap that is connected to your tongue, just beneath the tongue?! I have no idea how I keep doing that! :/

            LOL. I love that one! Yeah, I'd go ballistic with that. In my last class we all had to do presentations. One lady (who drives me insane anyway because she always has to speak up and ramble it most of the time it has nothing to do with the discussion) did the whole thing while chomping and clicking on her gum. Seriously? This is graduate school people. Ergh.

              Looks like it could be. I've wacked both of my little toes at one time or another(and assumed they were broken cuz they took about 6 weeks to heal). One I was able to tape to its neighbor and that worked fine. The other, just hurt too much to do that and I had to wear, sandals (usuall flip flops) that didn't touch the toe for no pain. Right now I'm dealing with a sore toe that I caught on the bed post a couple of days ago. It's not discolored like yours, just sore.

                LOL. I was thinking about a cow at the time. Couldn't help it. I don't have anything against chewing gum, I chew it myself on occasion but there is gum chewing and then there is GUM "smack, slobber" CHEWING. I kept trying to tell myself that maybe she was stressed and it was her way of relieving it or something. I mean how could she not know what she sounds and looks like if she does it that way all the time.

                • OMG the gum chewing. I would go insane if i had to listen to that.

                  my gotd is gd aholes who ride at race pace thru a two-way singletrack trail and RUN HEAD ON TO ME AND KNOCK ME OFF MY BIKE! I was actually even in the process of calling out around the blind corner when this idiot came blasting from the other direction & slams into me. The air became quite blue in the trail. That kid better be glad my bike was OK.

                    Holy cow, that isn't good! Glad to hear your bike is ok and hopefully other than being peeved, you're ok as well.

                    • My gripe of the day is that all of my gripes of the day are related to either work or my commute. Have I no life?!

                      Oh wait, I have a life, it just doesn't suck.

                      Also, my counterpart in another department seems to be suffering from PMS Brain at the same times I do. That does not help.

                      • Fucking Federal government; they need to stop bickering over stupid shit and run the country. DH works for our state dept. Of natural resources and was to attend a workshop in North Carolina paid for by the EPA. They cancelled the workshop on Friday afternoon because everything was up in the air; and of course, late Friday night things were more or less settled. My gripe is that I was looking forward to 4 days to myself and a quiet house. And eating stuff DH doesn't like and just doing my own thing like not cooking if I didn't want to, etc.

                          NO. That is the last thing they need to do.

                          What "runs the country" is each of us going to work every day and contributing to economic growth, the fed gov is a parasite.

                            • gotd: Turns out the local arborteum where I walk almost every week started asking for Ids to go along with the member card; so when I got there I remembered my DL, and it turned out I've been carrying someone else's card for nearly a year and had never noticed the tiny print names on the back. Apparently they had given me someone else's card last year. They let me in, but I came home and searched through my last year's receipts and found it; what an aggravation. But minor in the grand scheme.
