In general, I'm a pretty laid back chick. I don't care what other people are doing. I don't go out of my way to find out what's going on with just about anything. If there was a crime and it happened in front of me, I'd be the worst witness in the world. I dont pay attention to detail at all. This is probably the reason my car is so banged up. But, I digress.

So, anyway, I'm at the store yesterday and there's a youngish twenty something guy walking around doing his grocery shopping and wearing his ipod. Okay, no big deal. I see a lot of people doing that. But then, I saw this adorable little girl, maybe around three years old and she's just following him around like a puppy dog. He's not talking to her, he's not making her trip to the grocery store fun or memorable at all. The only thing I could think of was how much of an asshole he is. Who does that to a kid???? I mean, what the fuck?? Poor girl. I wanted to swoop her up so bad and take her home with me. He'll regret his actions someday.

Speaking of people being nosey...

My dad sometimes does odd jobs and landscaping type work for people in the community for pocket cash. So, he's over at someone's house this morning and he's loading or unloading his truck. I dunno. Next thing he knows, in comes the security guard from the front gate. With a sheepish and embarassed smirk on his face as if he couldn't believe what he was about to say... he says to my dad "is that your truck out front?" and my dad says "yeah, why?" and he's like "well, someone called to complain that your truck is facing the wrong direction on the street". OH MY GOD! Yes, this is what happens in a 55 and over community. Bored people, waiting for death and nothing to do. I would NEVER try to get away with anything living here. The depth of nosiness is just unbelievable. Please tell me how my dad's truck facing the wrong direction in a cul de sac is negatively affecting anyone on the earth. Please, explain this to me.

Last item of interest for tonight...

I was playing at the Cannery earlier this evening - yes, I know, unbelievable that i was gambling and especially at the Cannery. So, I'm playing multi card keno and killing it by the way! I hit 7 out of my 8 numbers which gave me 6out of 6, two 5 out of 5's and 7 out of 8. But, there's skill to this game. sort of. I mean, not really skill, but you do need to overlap the numbers on your cards to reach maximum potential and it's taken me a while to learn the patterns that uusally hit and which numbers work for me.

Anyway, this guy sits down and hits 6 out of 6 FOUR times on one spin. He leans over to me and says "these aren't even my numbers, I put ten bucks in teh machine and played the numbers that were already on the screen". UGH! Blasphemy! Who does that?? There should be a law against stealing someone else's numbers. Get your own. It's like stealing someone else's work and claiming it was yours. It's just not right dammit.

Oh yeah, last thing. I went to the Riviera today because they were giving away free slot play. Um, yeah, guess how much I got?? It's like a random number generator, so you don't know how much you got until you put the card in the machine. Yeah, I got a whole freaking dollar. WHAT THE? I played that one stinkin dollar and did not put another dime in their machines. I was so fucking annoyed that I drove there, parked, rode the elevator, walked all through the casino in heels, filled out paperwork to the get the card, found a machine that was playable and they have the never to give me a dollar?? I'm boycotting that place now. You guys should do the same. It's a dump anyway.

The more ya know!

I've always felt these highly-touted but virtually worthless "specials" do more harm than good. People get annoyed at trinkets and knickknacks as prizes or wheels that land on One Dollar.
Even if the place is a dump and they can't really afford to give much, either give nothin' or do the job right! Leave a decent tip or leave nothing at all! The Riviera is really hurting so if it can't afford a decent prize it shouldn't offer any prizes.

Judging people's parenting is a slippery slope. Also, it's doubtful that you swooping her up would improve things for her. It would likely be the complete opposite, in fact.

Oh really Sean?? So, what you are saying is that I should't kidnap the three year old I saw yesterday at Albertsons? And, furthermore, bringing her home to hangout with me, my parents and the rest of the 55 and over community is NOT a good idea? shocking! Please Sean do go on. Any other tidbits of wisdom you'd like to send our way??

So, now, drowning out any noise coming from your toddler with an ipod and very loud headphones is considered "parenting". Who knew??

Please tell me more

It is not negatively affecting anyone, but confronting him about it is certainly positively affecting those poor souls who if not exactly sitting around waiting to die are not involved in anything the least bit productive or useful either. It is their entertainment. It may even be their only entertainment in life.

Give "Awesome Sean" hell Carmen! As a parent, seeing someone going about their business with their iPod on with a 3 year old tagging along makes me think kidnapping waiting to happen. He can't hear her, is probably in his own world (if he's like me when I listen to my iPod) and wouldn't even notice until it was too late if someone snatched her up. Scary shit right there.....

Tara...I was simply saying that the blog writer has no room to judge. She will never be a parent and if she were a parent DSS would take her child. Aside from that, yeah, give it to me.
