Civic duty & a taxing day

What a wonderful day - I had the honor of paying my taxes and I had the joy of jury duty. They have designed the whole process with no thought of any comfort.

The room is in the early goulag-style with touches of mid-Soviet. The cold-hard-ugly soul-sucking room is perfect for the banshee and her shrill speech. Same tired jokes year after year.

Best phrase to say in the presence of a judge, "He must be guilty, why else would the police have arrested him?"

The gave me 12 months off for good behavior. Till next year.

Grounded? Are you sure? This image does not match the message. Maybe I'm missing something, but this person seems to be ungrounded.

Another reason to go to Fry's

If you love great service, understandable policies, and friendly staff: shop anywhere buy Fry's. If you want non-existent service, incomprehensible policies, and a hostile-misanthropic-surly staff: then get yourself down to Fry's. Plus you'll be able to read their wonderful potty policy in person. I'm not sure if this is company-wide, or only at the Burbank store, but it reflects well how the company thinks of its customers.

Thanks to Jay Morrissette for sending me this photo.
