The missus and I splurged for the first time in ages and ate lunch out today. The food was good, but I wasn’t impressed by the speck of lettuce on the outside of my tea glass, or the one on my knife. Since I knew I wouldn’t be using the knife and it was the OUTSIDE of the glass, I didn’t bother saying anything. The problem is twofold, first, the restaurants are forced to use the crappy detergent sold by the dish-washing machine company, or their warranty is voided and second, the kids in the kitchen overload the washer to where some of the silverware and dishes don’t get washed properly anyway. Don’t even THINK that the kids actually LOOK to see if things are clean.
Afterward, we went to Chinamart to get some of our groceries. We have to use a different brand of water these days, as they’ve quit carrying our brand, but I went online and learned that a different chain in Ohio may have it. My wife and I were both raised with well water and both have some stomach problems. If we try to use some brands, our stomachs soon start giving us trouble. Drinking tap water, with all its chlorine, fluoride and Lord knows what else, is akin to slow suicide for us. In case there’s any moron out there who insists that all water is the same, keep your mouth shut; just because you’re a moron doesn’t mean that you have to prove it.
We all know that most people are goofy these days. As we left Chinamart, I saw a young woman with her butt cheeks hanging far below her shorts which, in turn, barely showed below her winter coat.
Once at home, I tried using the internet again. My computer goes into sit and spin mode after a few minutes anymore, making the internet almost unusable for me. I just cleaned, defragged and dumped the cookies and such, so I know it’s none of those things causing the problem. The guru says he has some similar problems with a different provider and says that at least some of the problem is Google looking for hacks and other illegal activity. My computer does fine with internal tasks like using Word and sorting files, so I know it’s not my computer. Despite the fact that my provider just jacked up their prices again, I believe the problem is that usage of my local line is more than the provider’s equipment can handle. I’m thinking about going to Dish TV, but I’m sure I won’t save any money, as they make up the packages in such a way that you have to get the most expensive combo to get anything worth watching, while paying for about 150 channels that aren’t even of interest to me.
