*Instead of just eating, paying and getting the phuck out, one 20-something white couple decided to write a despicable note on the receipt of the waitress they say had just provided “Great service” to them.
The note on the stained receipt read, “great service don’t tip black people.”
Now I know racism is still alive and well in these United States of America, but why do I feel like vomiting every time I see it in black and white?
Of course waitress Kelly Carter was stunned, and her boss at Anita’s New Mexico Style Cafe in Ashburn, Virginia, Tommy Tellez Sr., embarrassed.
He told WJLA: “I’m appalled. This is so disheartening.” He says Carter is such a loyal employee and beloved by the customers.
“She has a following,” Tellez said. “Her philosophy for customer service is way beyond the norm, and we’re really happy to have her.”
According to what Carter told WJLA, the couple acted like anyone else. They gave no indication whatsoever that they were racists. She said the woman even complimented the food.Continue reading →
*And to think, somebody went to law school for this. Let me explain. When I learned that an actual judge had sentenced a man to more than TWO DECADES in jail because he stole a TV remote, my first action was to research what training a person has to go through to become a judge.
This is what I found.
Step One: Obtain an Undergraduate Degree. …
Step Two: Attend Law School and Obtain a Juris Doctor. …
Step Three: Pass the Bar and Other Exams. …
Step Four: Become Appointed or Elected to the Court. …
Step Five: Complete Judgeship Training.
So then I though, “Nah. There has got to be more to this story.”
*Damn David, you’re my favorites, but WTF? If you’re a magic buff like I am, you no doubt know who David Blaine is. Blaine is the amazing illusionist and endurance artist who never wasted time on stupid card tricks. No, he started off blowing folks’ minds levitating; doing crazy things like walking on water (no offense, Jesus), being buried alive and even hanging upside down for 40 hours. He definitely thinks out of the box, But this time he went too far and almost killed himself. He shot himself in the mouth.
I’ll give you a minute to absorb that.
You a’iight? Due to extreme luck, or whatever you may choose to call it…so is he.
Blaine’s stunt actually went wrong during his Beyond Magic show last November. But it was only broadcast on E4 on Saturday night during a clip showing him spitting frogs out of his mouth into the audience.
*Sereno was so close to his human that he broke down at the funeral. Wagner Lima, 34, died after a motorcycle crash in Paraiba Brazil and according to Inside Edition, who picked up the story, the horse, seeming to know his human was inside the coffin, laid his head on it and “whimpered during the procession to the cemetery.”
Thankfully, Sereno will not be left on his own. Wagner’s brother has promised to care for the animal.
This video will prove beyond the shadow of any doubt that our animals feel the same sense of loss that we humans do.
*Some serious marijuana activists are going all out to ensure the place of marijuana in Donald Trump’s administration. They will be handing out 4,200 joints to the people — for free — to be smoked at exactly 4-minutes and 20 seconds into Trump’s speech.
Hot dang! Even the non-smokers will leave with a contact high!
Let’s hope Trump himself takes a toke of something before he delves into his “Inauguration Speech.” From what he’s shown us of his public speaking prowess, would that really be so bad?
Oh hell, why not just have one in-hand DURING the speech!
Let’s face it: A Barack Obama he is NOT.
You might be wondering “what’s the message here?” Especially since the generous givers are not calling this an anti-Trump stance; but a “protest.” Continue reading →
*I knew it was only a matter of time for SOME ILLNESS to come about as a result of heavy pot smoking — exacerbated by the fact that its now legal in several states. Of course it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that heavy pot users have been shown to have memory issues (and some have even become downright delusional, but that’s another story). Honestly, I don’t know if I stand 100 with the new ruling in California, whose pass came about last November. Blame it on the fact that I see way too much marijuana smoke being blown out of passing car windows; or even the fact that the guy who backed up off the freeway ramp, into my brand new car, reeked of it.
Medical marijuana is legitimate. It continues to be of great significance in alleviating debilitating pain; and even offers undeniable results where some children’s illnesses are concerned.
But just allowing any damn body to smoke weed. Out loud. Not so much.
Anyway, according to emergency room doctors, a lot of folks are flooding the ER rooms with illnesses related to severe pot smoking. Continue reading →
*How dare she? That was my first thought after watching the video where this supposed Woman of God goes on a rant about who will get into Heaven and who won’t. That’s basically what her anti-gay ‘sermon’ was about.
I am not gay, and I’m not Christian — but let me tell you, I am still offended, and YOU, reader, should be too. It’s absolutely disgusting when people use what should be a platform of love and inclusion, to spout their own nasty views on how others choose to live their life.
How dare you! And shame on the ‘supporters’ of this idiocy; those who can be heard sitting in the audience heeing and hawing their support.
And Ms. Burrell, you didn’t even use good sense. You did this KNOWING you were going on the television show of one of the most beloved lesbian women of the 21st century, Ellen DeGeneres?
*Oh boy. And to think I was just apologizing to a visitor: “Too bad we can’t take you up to see the Hollywood sign,” as we traveled down the famed street in Los Angeles — with them looking at the handprints in cement in from of the old Mann’s Chinese Theater (now ‘TCL’ sumpthin’); as the children took pictures with the likes of Batman, Mickey & Minnie, Edward Scissorhands, The Joker and the man with the huge yellow snake.
I am so glad I didn’t point for them to actually lookup.
I can just hear the children now. “Mommy, THAT doesn’t spell Hollywood.”Continue reading →
