Service With A Snarl

Another candidate for our not-entirely-suited-to-the-job file:

The elderly couple ordered a “carefully budgeted” $50 of groceries to be delivered to their home last Sunday… Nothing was amiss until they went outside to meet the driver, Tara, for fear that she might struggle with her vehicle in their snow-covered driveway. When they opened the front door, Tara yelled at them… while rocking her vehicle back and forth in the driveway.

It turned out the issue wasn’t snow

The ostensible cause of Tara’s mental crisis can be viewed here.

Update, via the comments:

The individual in question, the one swollen with righteousness, is no longer employed.

Via I, Hypocrite, via Darleen. Also, open thread.



What have we come to?

Jesus wept.

Everyone involved in that story should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves for gross stupidity. 'She' tripped on a bungee cord exiting a bivvy - which she hadn't been 'trained' to do. (Insert long and colourful string of expletives)

Also she looks about 40 in the photo at the top of the article but is supposed to be 24. Obviously tripping has taken an outsized toll on her.


What have we come to?
Judge Cormac Quinn in particular deserves an award for gross stupidity. More light should have been provided - just what a military force needs in a potentially hostile situation.

Our schools have become very efficient at turning out stupid people.

I seem to recall that, at one time, the judicial system deferred significantly to military courts so that a judge might likely have rejected the plaintiff's claim and told "her" to face up to the reality of life in the infantry. Also, the military would have given a less than honorable discharge to anyone who pulled such a stunt.


To be fair, Brian May went from massive musical success to a PhD in astrophysics...

I didn't know about him. Thanks. A little voice in the back of my head tells me I have heard of someone else too, but that voice refuses to say who.




Better nouveau than no riche at all.
