Government-Think

Notes from an account today…

Suzie Controller* states that she doesn’t want to participate in any payment initiative for any high dollar amount transactions due to the merchant fees for those transactions and rather than setting a dollar limit per transaction, she would prefer to not participate at all. She did state though that credit card payments could be made online. To pay by credit card you must go to http://www.cityofthefuckingstupid.org/*.

WIDTS: So you don’t want to participate due to the fees you’re going to be charged anyway when I decide to make my payment online? If it makes sense to a government employee, it has to be logical to everyone else, right? 

Does anyone else see why government-think is a retarded state of mind?

What I love is the “1 million strong” portion of the name and the fact that they’re not even 1/4 the way there. Hilarious!

Governmental Contradictions

So today I went to the local McDonald’s for breakfast. Hey, I like their sausage patties, what can I say? But anyways, while I was there, I noticed a rather LARGE gentleman trying to sit in one of the chairs in the dining area. Why he chose one of the swivel chairs that are fixed in place and not one at the handicap-designated table that is a regular chair, I have no idea. When he finished sitting, the chair was swiveled out at a 45-degree angle because he couldn’t fit between the chair back and the table.

Not as appetizing as what's shown on the menu, eh?

But that’s getting off-point. The reason for this post is the amount of food on his tray when he brought it to his table. He had at least 7 breakfast burritos on his tray. according to the “Nutrition” chart found on their website, ONE burrito has 300 calories, 12 grams of protein, 16 grams of fat(25% of the RDA), 26 grams of carbs, EIGHT HUNDRED AND THIRTY grams of sodium(35% of the RDA!), 7 grams of saturated fat(the bad kind), and 115 milligrams of cholesterol(38% of the RDA). I’m not going to do the math on all those stats because it would be overkill. (That’s a bit of a joke for those that think I’m being completely serious here.)

Hardest Working Columnist?

From an article found at http://m.sltrib.com/sltrib/mobile/53205931-90/skier-waitress-beer-liquor.html.csp

With a brand-new year upon us and the 2012 legislative session
just around the corner, this is a good time to review Utah’s liquor
laws.
But not just any old review. I found on YouTube a video using
animated characters to show why our Legislature makes the folks
promoting tourism and conventions in the state work so much
harder to be successful. The video has had 26,400 views.
The video was produced by “pwderhd” using Xtranormal Movie
Maker.
But because it accurately describes Utah law, I couldn’t resist, for
my first column of the new year…

WIDTS: Your FIRST column of the year debuts on December 30th? With that kind of management at your newspaper, you should enjoy many more years of less work ahead.

Ron Paul? Seriously?

Ron Paul’s main form of campaign advertising seems to be having citizens form his name with red cups on freeway overpass fences. If he wonders why he isn’t being taken seriously, I’d be happy to be hired as a consultant to explain it to him. I only ask that I be paid in rum, Coke and red cups.

Question posed on a popular Q&A site: Can people be sold on e-bay? Please don’t tell me it’s illegal, I know that’s just a myth the government tries to scare us with. Damn government controls everything.

WIDTS: Please do so so that your idiot genes can be removed from the gene pool until you are too old to reproduce.

Caller: I need to return something and on your packing slip it says to use UPS or FedEx.

Me: OK

Caller: But you sent it to me through the US Post Office.

WIDTS: OK, I can see how you are confused. My supervisors do this all the time. They say to follow their example and I do, but then they yell at me.
