It also really annoys me when people don’t change out the toilet paper. I know it’s not really the job of the customer to do it, but why the hell not? It’s just a simple exchange. So they use all the toilet paper on the rolls, then they start using the toilet paper sitting on the back of the toilet and leave the empty roll on the dispenser. Then they empty the extra rolls and leave them empty on the back of the toilet. THROW IT AWAY! There’s a trashcan THREE INCHES from the toilet! For godsake!

As per inspiration I’ve decided to write a little.
I’ll talk about work, since that topic always seems to entertain people.
Hmmm let’s see……..
Yeah I can’t think of anything there. It’s pretty boring. Say hi, bring drinks, bring order, clean table. I have a few stories but they aren’t that interesting really.
How about a general life ponderingmenty thingy?
When I drive on the road, I always wonder if people can see me in the car. I usually wonder at night when I’m driving. I can never see them because of the headlights.
I also think the healthcare system in this country is complete ass. I have absolutely no solution and I don’t vote, so technically I’m not allowed to say any of this, but I can give a big fuck off to anyone who decides to tell me that. Anywho.
One of the girls that I work with has kidney stones. She has no insurance and doesn’t make just a whole lot of money. She lives with her boyfriend about 30 minutes away. She has been told multiple times that she needs surgery to remove a few of the stones that will not pass. Like… a 6mm stone and a 4mm stone. I wouldn’t want to pass that either. She started having problems with her kidneys when she was 18. At that time she was covered by her parents insurance. Then she turned 19. The coverage stopped and no one would insure a chick who goes to the hospital a few times a year for the same thing. Or if they did, they would write some bullshit loophole so she would have to pay for it.
Regardless, she has no way to pay for the surgery. She’s not a person who believes in being in debt, so she’s extremely reluctant to just ride an ambulance in. You know, they can’t refuse treatment then, but you still get the bill. My mom suggested that she see about indigent coverage provided by her county. I told her about it. She checked it out. Apparently you have to make less than $400 a month to receive that. Do you understand how little that is? That’s not enough to be alive. That’s not enough to have a home and food regularly for one person. I guess it’s a good thing though, for all the people who do make less than $400 a month. They’ll need help paying for their treatment from being malnourished. She makes more than that.
Some people might tell her to move or to get a better job. Now this, I could agree with. She could probably move and find a higher paying job in a bigger city. She would be leaving all of her family and her boyfriend, but she could physically do that. As far as the better job thing in this area, it’s not possible. It’s too small to find a decent job. There is no economy to bring these people above poverty levels.
It’s sad to me because a big answer is always ‘move.’ I can see both sides of that, but if every single person who didn’t make a lot of money moved to a larger city, it wouldn’t really solve anything.
sidebar: Much like people not tipping waitresses because if they want more money they can get another job. A.) Nice fucking attitude. B.) If all the waitresses of the world quit their jobs to get more money, you would have to serve yourself your own food. If you wanted to do that, you could just eat at home. Actually, to all people who don’t tip, sit your stuck up ass at home and cook your own damn food.
So in conclusion, I wish there were a better healthcare system. I wish Avery could get her surgery and not have to worry about that shit anymore. *shrug* Maybe she should move to canadia.
I rushed home after watching Cowboy Bebop and Xmen 2 and Battlestar Gallactica so I could wish everyone a merry Christmas before time ran out.
I fail at a lot of things. Just take the gesture and be happy.
Holy shit! Andrew is blogging?!? Welcome to the circle!! Maybe you’ve been blogging for awhile and no one told me. :o Also, Congrats to Chris and his Wifey wife. And also, hello to Randy, whose link has been wrong for, oh, a year or so. :) Merry Christmas you guys!
 – Errrr Sorry Tim. Didn’t mean to leave you out of the Apex and Ex’s post. :) omghi2u.
So I got an e-giftcard from Target for my birthday. I thought I redeemed it when I purchased Pirates of the Caribbean blahblahblah, but then the charge for that movie showed up on my bank account. I have an online account with Target (of course) so when I went to check out, it used my debit card instead of the e-giftcard that I put in. When I just logged back in to check it out, it said I had a balance of $25. Why it didn’t apply that to my last purchase, I’ll never know. But I now have Finding Nemo on its way to my parents house. If this one charges weird, I’ll be calling customer service. Maybe I’ll end up with something for free. woo!
 I figured it out. Apparently the giftcard isn’t valid for things from amazon.com and apparently the Pirates of the blahblahblahblah was from amazon.com even though I clicked buy from target.com. Cheap bastards. (At least I have two new movies. heheh)
