What in the hell is going on?
Posted Nov 7, 2001 - 2:29:39

So, I'm just sitting here, realizing the whole f***ing world is nuts.

My realization started several days ago when I was woken up by a phone call.

A phone call from the Eau Claire County Jail. Now, I have to point out that this call was FROM the Jail, and not to it like we usually get here (my phone number is one digit different). Now, I was half asleep and refused the call because it was collect. I then realized, as I slowly woke up, that it was my friend David, who had been essentially arrested for Arson.

Yep, Arson. I was confused too.

In truth, there's a scummy cop who's partially out to get David, and he just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. You have to understand how dumb this is - he was taken in as a suspect on a fire that hasn't even had it's cause determined. Essentially, a suspect for a crime that does not exist.

What the hell is wrong with people?

Anyways, this was my first clue that the world was f***ed up, but I soon began to notice other signs. At work today a woman came in needing to replace her phone. She had lost her old one, and was still under a Cellular One contract. Now, for CellOne phones, without a new activation, we have to charge a $300 upcharge. Yeah, I agree, that's a rip-off. But that's life. I also pointed out that she could get a better price by going down the street to the Cell One office. She then asked me questions about twenty other phones, designed for other carriers, to which I calmly explained that none of which would work with her current service. She then stared at me and asked why she should have to pay $300+ for a phone, when her contract only had two months left. I explained that she could go to the Cell One office for a better price (My hands are tied on the $300 upcharge - can't price match or nothing). She asked that question about ten different times. Now, I was nice, courtious, and confused. Why? Because I was amazed at the fact that she just didn't seem to *believe* me about the charge... yipes. Why in the heck would I lie about that.

After all that, I've decided that the third horseman will be the X-box. Because lord and lady know I can't fathom the sausage controller on that POS.
