Rain, Rain Come And Stay

Well at least it’s not snow.

Flooded roads and sewer backups troubled the region today, but creeks rose without major damage in the Pittsburgh area on Monday.

Most of Western Pennsylvania’s counties except for Washington and Greene are under a flood warning until about 6:45 p.m., according to the National Weather Service. Rain mixed with snowmelt swelled creeks throughout the region today, and meteorologists expect that will lead to high rivers tomorrow.

I’m not complaining. Especially when remember what it was like in February last year.

Suspicius Post

“Pennsylvania State police warn of suspicious person.” I love headlines.

And here’s the story.

Beware of strangers knocking on the door, state police warn.

State police said an unknown male gained entry to the home of an elderly man on Melvin Drive by telling the homeowner he was with Hempfield Township and was collecting $5 for “bug spraying.”

The two men chatted, the visitor asked to use the bathroom inside the home, and then he departed “without any known problems,” police said.

The homeowner was targeted several months ago by two individuals who “grossly overcharged” for a driveway paving job, police said.

Police are seeking information on the latest visitor, described as a white male in his late teens or early 20s. He weighs about 200 pounds and is about 6 feet tall. He was driving a dark-colored sedan, police said.

Anyone knowing about similar incidents or who saw something in this case should contact state police in Greensburg.

I remember a year or so ago I took the day off work; can’t remember the reason. However, this guy did ring the doorbell and I answered. He was one of those, “I drove by and say your driveway could use paving.” Uhhh, no, it doesn’t. I think he was surprised someone under the age of 80 answered the door at 11 am on a weekday. I think I still have his business card.

Blockbuster Closeout

with 2 comments

So earlier this week Mrs. kkk and I learned that our local Blockbuster was going out of business. We would visit that place every few months and get used DVDs 5 for $20. (Or was it 4 for $20? No matter.) Of course, with loyal customers like us, I’m shocked this Blockbuster got the free-market ban-hammer.

The better half got a $15 Blockbuster gift card as a birthday present from a friend, and she wanted to unload it before this store called it a day. So last night we stopped by, and the dumbmasses were out in full force.

Now I’m all about picking the carcass of a store going out of business, but come on people. Thirty percent off a $15 used DVD is NOT a sale. There were people walking up to the register with stacks of DVDs and video games. WHY GOD WHY?

But there was some entertainment. My favorite was some guy yelling at his kids, “I didn’t plan on coming in here to spend $40.” Mrs. kkk also got a kick out of some kid trying to choose between two video games and saying to himself, “This isn’t going to be easy. Tough choices will have to be made.” But the best had to be when we were waiting in line and Mrs. kkk said to me, “Another victim of the HUSSEIN RECESSION~!!” And the lady in front of us then gave us a scowl. Of course that may have been after my comment about the First Wookie.

Perusing this store actually gave me a flashback to when I spent a few weeks working at a kitchen supply store that was going out of business. It was fun seeing a bunch of customers that thought they were getting incredible deals only to ask me, “Is that total right?” It was more fun explaining to these people that “10 percent off” covers the sales tax and little else.

Etiquette Smitiquette

leave a comment »

And here’s yet another example of what separates men from women.

So yesterday I got a letter from my soon-to-be-married co-worker. This letter was a wedding invitation.

The person whose office is down the hall from mine at work sent me an invitation … by mail.

That was 44 cents well spent.

Did I say “44 cents”? I meant to say “88 cents.” Not only for the actual letter but the return RSVP thing that had a stamp stuck on to that as well. With the size of her wedding party, she probably bankrolled her local USPS branch’s payroll for a week.

How did I handle the situation? Instead of mailing the RSVP back to her, I sealed the envelope and put it on her chair. Oh, and I did write “that’s 88 cents well spent” on the envelope as well.

I also added if I would have to wear a tie to this thing, but I’ll defend this action. With my family’s history of dressing for these events (and ESPECIALLY with Mrs. kkk’s side of the family), I always make it a policy to question the level of formal wear needed. That’s what happens when you have a family whose wedding table of 12 attendees gives you a combined $40 on your big day.

Muslim Butt-Pirates

leave a comment »

But remember, those pirates are just poor and hungry.

Americans Jean and Scott Adam were on a mission to distribute Bibles around the world when their yacht was hijacked by Somali MUSLIM pirates, friends of the couple said.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Central Command said the Adams, along with Philis Macay and Bob Riggle, had been killed by their MUSLIM captors.

A U.S. Navy ship had been trailing the captured Americans after their yacht, Quest, was overtaken by MUSLIM pirates on Friday.

Although to be fair, if you’re going to deliver Bibles around the world to third-world shitholes, perhaps a yacht shouldn’t be your transportation vehicle of choice.
