Smartphones have made people dumber

RANT

I just watched a guy in my office walk at a rate of about 1 step every 3 seconds to cover about 50 yards.  He did this while typing with his thumbs on an iPhone.  He could have sat at his computer and typed the same email in about 1/4th the time and then walked normal speed to his meeting.  What the fuck are people thinking?  I don’t think that they are thinking at all.  They have become a slave to their phone and to the corporate world.  It’s a shame.

Yeah, I know it’s a common theme with me but it drive me nuts.  Put down the stupid electronic devices and live your life.  I have an iPhone and I do enjoy it, but I don’t let it run my life.  I don’t look at it when I’m the passenger in a car.  I don’t walk around looking at it.  Fuck that.  I have better things to look at while I’m out and about.  If I’m sitting at home then that is a different story.  When I’m having some “down time” I gladly look at my iPhone.  I don’t look at it all the time though.  People need to use it as a tool, or as a piece of entertainment.  Don’t let it use you.  Most people let the smartphone become their master.  Man, fucking quit that shit.

Love my job

I’m thankful to have a job that I love. I seriously am. I don’t take it for granted one day. I work for as an IT guy for an NFL team and it’s the best job I’ve ever had. Some days you work hard but you also get to play hard. It is the first job I’ve ever had that I sometimes don’t want to take a vacation day from because I have that much fun at work. I love what I do. I actually get paid to do my hobby. I’m not usually one to toot my own horn but I’m very good at what I do and I will keep it that way.

Right now I’m sitting at home and thinking that I’m off tomorrow and actually wondering if I should just go in to work instead. I know I sounds crazy but I like my job that much. Not many people can say that.

I’m thankful to God for all that He’s given me.

A few pointers for young people these days…

+ For the sake of everything that is good, pull your fucking pants up off your ass. They belong at your waist and not ON your fucking ass.

+ Quit walking with your friends while texting someone else. Are you shitting me? Fuck. If you’re going to walk somewhere with your friends fucking talk to them. Put your fucking phone in your pocket or throw the fucker off a building or something.

+ Look where you are walking jackass. Observe. Pull up your fucking pants, and look forward while you’re walking forward. The next guy that is walking towards me and doesn’t move because he’s looking at his phone texting will get shoulder checked and knocked to the fucking ground. Pay attention!

+ Quit being so vain. Everything is not about you. Think about other people, be kind. Yes, that means being polite and not dicking around with shit while you’re in traffic. Drive. If you need to text or dig in your purse or look up your nose, pull the fuck off the road and handle it.

+ Plan ahead. Don’t be such a fucking dicktard.

+ Don’t continually drive in the left lane of a 3 lane highway completely oblivious to what is going on around you. We know when you are in your car you feel like you’re in your own little world and nobody else can see you but that’s not true. We can see you, and you’re being a dick. Move the fuck over.

+ Open doors for women. Yes they still like this. I don’t care if it’s your first date or if you’ve been married for 20 years. If you don’t do this, you’re a jackass.

+ Don’t swear around other people’s kids. If you must swear around your own kids then I guess I can’t do anything about it. Don’t swear around my kids. Grow the fuck up and learn to swear around other adults if you must but not around kids. Yeah I swear, but not around kids.

+ Do work and do it well. When you are at work, they are paying you to work, not jack-off. Don’t think that the world owes you a living. It doesn’t, and neither do other people. You have to bust your ass to make a living. If you are in the bottom 20% you will soon be unemployed. Don’t be that person. If you dick off at work, don’t wonder why you just got fired.

Have a nice day!

Why do people whistle?

I understand that everyone has their own little “tick” or something but what is up with people that whistle?

At work I’m walking down the hall and there is an older guy (about 75) walking in front of me. He’s just whistling up a storm. It was loud and annoying. That’s great if he’s happy and wants to do that but at least don’t ruin other people’s time by doing it. What if instead of whistling I was yelling the lyrics of a song I really like? That would be annoying to other people I bet.

I’m not a whistler so I don’t understand. I can whistle but at no point in time does it ever cross my mind “I should whistle, this song while I’m walking around”.

I mean seriously….what the fuck? Are you THAT bored?

Fuck.

Random Thoughts for May

+ I’m tired and I’ve not slept much in the last two days.

+ I wish cell phones were never invented.

+ I cannot believe anyone would buy something called “iPad”.

+ Code Red Mountain Dew!

+ ZDP-189 = the stuff.

+ “Shit My Dad Says” is a good book.

+ I’ve always had good luck with HP Printers.

+ I smashed my iPod with a 5 lb. sledgehammer. On purpose.

+ Multitasking is total bullshit for humans.

+ We are still in Iraq and Afghanistan? Fuck.

+ Nobody should ever use terms like “team building” or “synergy”. What….are you fucking drunk?

+ Greed will kill this planet.

+ I will stock up on incandescent bulbs. CPF bulbs are too “cold” and they will never be the same.

+ More people should read, and turn off the TV.

+ Animals are wonderful.

+ Quantity time with your kids is way better than quality time.

Things that make you warm and comfy

As I sit in my very comfortable and cozy home I realize how blessed I am. I am very thankful to God for all that He has provided me.

I started to think about different things that just take me back to my childhood or things that make you just feel ‘at home’ or ‘comfy’.

First off, all these memories or ‘things’ will come from a time where cell phones never existed. To me you cannot be comfy in a house where a cell phone is ringing. This probably stems from me having to be on-call where I work.

I think of how nice it is to be home on a chilly afternoon, sitting on the couch or chair, with my feet upon the ottoman (I call it a hassock but most people are like “WTF?”) watching a baseball game on TV and eating some peanuts. I think of being at my grandparents house and reading a book on the living room floor while my grandmother would be quilting or knitting. My grandfather would be reading the news paper with a toothpick in his mouth.

Today I sit here on the ‘love seat’ in the living room with my laptop typing this. My wife is at the store picking up some groceries and my daughter is sitting in the chair across from me coloring and watching ‘The Flintstones’ off and on. I’m sipping on a cup of Chock full o’Nuts coffee. It’s 2:30pm but it is about 43 degrees outside and very windy, so it’s nice to be inside and cozy.

I like sitting here in the living room during the fall and winter with a sweater on, a pair of jeans, and the fireplace roaring. We have a large wood burning fireplace that is right in the living room. Our cats love lying in front of the fireplace and warming their bodies while the fire is burning. Fire is amazing and there is nothing in the world like a good fire (outside or inside) to make you warm and cozy.

It is also very nice to lie across the bed with some peace and quiet and read a book or page through a magazine. For me, Popular Mechanics or Consumer Reports are a good start.

Add a slice of apple pie or pecan pie and we’re all set. 😉

Idiot, phone book, and a hotel

So, I was staying at a Hampton Inn in Columbus and I got talking to one of the ladies at the front desk after a few days. I had complimented them on how well they had been cleaning my room. With the exception of the Park Hyatt in Chicago this particular Hampton Inn (at Pulsar Pl.) is the best hotel I’ve ever stayed in.

When I told the lady that I really appreciated how well they have been with my room she was shocked and offered me free drinks and snacks. I said, I appreciated it but no thank you. I was then told by her that not many people make compliments, they just complain. She had just recently gotten off of the phone with a man that would not check in unless he could take a phone book to the room. I understand maybe they used to do this in the past, but shit, I’ve not used a phone book in about 10 years. Welcome to 2009 for fuck’s sake. They had like 3 phone books that guests could use in the lobby and then move along. Why the fuck do you need to have a damn phone book to take to your room? Get over yourself. There are more things in life than having to be Mr. Super-Empowered-Jerk-Guy and impose your will (or try to) at a hotel franchise. What a fucking moron!

So for anyone interested the Hampton Inn in Columbus is a great place to stay. Technically I guess it’s in Polaris Place, but none the less. Give it a try.
