    My GotD: Today was the last day to see the Oriole's farm team play the local team which my oldest son has been counting down the days to, and it turned into a double header since last night was a rain-out. Tickets were supposed to go on sale at 9:30, first pitch 10:05.

    Called at 9:30, game delay due to weather and ticket office wasn't open. Called at the regular time the ticket office was supposed to be open, but they still had the we're closed leave a message message and didn't release first pitch time until 15 minutes before game was to start. :{

    One would think if you're not even able to buy tickets, you should give people more than 15 minutes notice that the game is going to be played rather than just expecting that they'd come out and wait, just in case.

    When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.

    When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "happy". They told me I didn’t understand the assignment.

    I told them they didn’t understand life.

    How I wish we could have a third party here! All we have now is dual idiocy.

    HA! they park like that in regular spaces - those who cannot handle their enormous vehicles should not own them.

    Where I work they make us go to another location or take vacation.

    On update the temp has dropped to 48° F.

    GOTD: to successfully record a podcast, you have to push record on the microphone. Otherwise you're just talking to yourself for 30 minutes... :/

    Can't drive it, don't buy it. If I can't get my corolla in next to your ginormo oilfield truck that you damn near triple parked, congratulations, you failed driver's ed 101.
