Warning: The following tirade contains language not suitable for children... unless its Q, in which case he already knows them all.

I took the boys to the MN Zoo today.

DK: "Oh my god! What is wrong with these people! Parking a car inside some yellow lines is not that hard! What the hell!?!"


DK: shaking head, inaudible "fuck"

Seriously though, what the hell is wrong with these people? The yellow lines marking where to park were clearly visible. Yet, a bunch of fools decided just to start making up their own parking spots. Strait lanes and commonsense be damned. It got so bad that the back of some of these a-holes' cars were actually encroaching the clearly marked handicapped parking spots on the other side of the driving lane. Then, of coarse, the whole place was packed with people calling the lemurs "monkeys", mispronouncing tapirs, and asking "where's Nemo?" in front of the fish tanks.

Why does everything I come to enjoy have to get ruined by people not as smart or as cool as I am? WHY?

Take The Nook as another example. Just a few blocks to stumble home from, its a neighborhood staple. Then some god damn cable tv show shows up and does a bit about them. Now every douche bag on the planet is packing the place so all us regulars from the neighborhood can't even get in the door to clog a few arteries when we need to. Don't get me wrong, I love to see the business do well, but there's a fine line here.

I suppose if more than 5 people actually read this blog I would be part of the problem.

I love your use of the word "Douche Bag". My hubby uses it, too. Is it a man-word? I dunno. But I like it.

Never heard of the Nook so don't blame me! I'm *that* uncool!
