Not a great start to the day got a chip on my windscreen aka
windshield from either a bird or another vehicle. Saw the bird flying in
circles ahead of me, so I’m getting it fixed for free. Thanks insurance
Okay while I wait here’s a fun fact about the very first
The taximeter was invented in
Ancient Rome originally. The rather crude invention was hooked up to a chariot,
with a horse and would be made up of a compartmented wheel driven by a road
wheel. As the wheel would turn pebbles would be released periodically as the
wheel moved. The pebbles would then be counted after every trip, which in turn
would dictate how many Denari the passenger owed the driver. (Popular
Mechanics, 1960: p112).
Ah yes what an evening of driving. Absolutely knackered. 4th of
July eve was a success. There were definitely highlights including a vegan
leaving a piece of onion on my passenger seat. The audacity! It’s okay I
flicked it out the door as she was shutting it. Boom! Mean Seth Rogan made an
appearance okay his doppelganger called Cody showed up. Same features and
voice, not to mention his laugh. Oh a man in van gave me the bird for merging
so I didn’t miss my exit. He was so powerful with it he lost his teeth! Hmmm
maybe he didn’t have them to begin with who knows? I just laughed at his anger
and proceeded to exit.
Now Uber Eats probably the grossest thing I ever encountered.
Went to use the restrooms while I waited for McDonald’s to cook the so called
food that David P ordered. As I was walking out of the bathroom a toddler
decided to drop what appeared to be a chicken nugget on the floor. Oh that’s no
nugget ladies and gentlemen, it was a turd. A smelly turd. The father of the
child casually proceeded to grab anything he could find to clean it up,
honestly hurry up dude before someone steps in it! The kid just stared at me with
his mouth open. I shook my head at the child and left the scene of the crime
immediately. Yep after that I had lost my appetite and dropped off his meal to
David P. Yes high as a kite this gent was. Couldn’t tell me where he was. I had
to find this guy stumbling in the night. He thanked me and I went on my way.
Someone left their sunglasses in my car. Will find out tomorrow
if anyone actually cares about them.
Hmmm…people still fascinated by accent. One guy was thankful
it wasn’t a New Zealand accent. He was very strong about it in fact. Said this
blonde New Zealander babysat him as a child and he loathed her.
Apparently people at Haggen the grocery store get paid and
looked after pretty well. This one particular gentleman was extremely stoked
about working there.
Met an environmental guy who gave me his card and may need an
archaeologist in the future. Knew all about section 106. I said I’ll send him a
resume as soon as I can. He owns his own company and works all over the US. He
had a walking stick and had to pick up his Ford from the dealership. He tipped
me rather well.
There was a lady named Hannah, she was Scottish and lived in
Australia. Cool story. Oh she was from Glasgow and is apparently better than
People always commenting on our dangerous animals. I said, you
know what doesn’t kill you? Assault rifles.
By the way a few ladies I dropped off at a wedding, informed me
that Mozambique is in the commonwealth and it used to be a Portuguese colony,
not UK. They even drive on the left. Smarty pants. I already knew that but it
was cool they revealed that to me.
One last thing. Racism.
Drunkard Racism. Not a fan. Not going to reveal the gory details, but after one
fellow spewed out a comment, I immediately turned around and said to be Frank, the
people you just discussed are probably the most respectful and genuine people I
have ever met. Here’s your stop. Goodnight.
