Sister Killer?

These are the stories that make me chuckle.

Apparently, in Niskayuna on December 16th, an 89-year-old man named Frank Parisi took a bunch of pills in an attempt to end his life.

That's not funny, I know.

After Mr. Parisi took his pills trying to overdose and end his life, for no reason, he then took a pillow and tried, in vain, to smother his 87-year-old sister in an attempted murder-suicide.

Common Courtesy at work? Please.....

I think in most aspects of life common courtesy is basically non-existent, but it's especially non-existent at the workplace.
Like when I get to work this morning and opening a door and holding it for this guy walking down the hall.  No big deal, he walks through and doesn't even look at me.  Not even a smile or nod of the head acknowledging my having held the door for him.

So I said, "You're welcome."

To which he responded,"Excuse me?!?"

And it isn't like he said it like he actually didn't hear me.  He said it with a jerkoff face and attitude.

It was at that point that I wished it was possible for me to put my hand through his throat and literally rip his esophagus out and rip his vocal cords from his body.

It Snows in the Northeast?

You wouldn't think so by the way you see people drive.

There are three types of drivers in the snow.

1.  The "I don't care if it's snowing out, I can still go 50 in my Corolla!"

This person is highly annoying and is more likely than not going to cause as accident.

2.  The "it's snowing so I am going to drive like a 90 year old woman"

Also highly annoying and they too will cause a crash if for no other reason than they are going to annoy people so much that they are going to make a rash decision and try to go around them or ride said persons ass.

3.  The "it's snowing so I should think and be careful"

This is the person who does everything right and still gets into an accident as a result of the idiot I described in #1 or the moron in #2.

Movies I've Seen in 2009

OK to be clear these aren't just movies I have seen in general this year, it's movies that I've seen that have been released this year in theaters.

I am not going to give a synopsys or a preview.  Just the name the stars, my grade, and a quick thought.. I'll go in order from worst rated to best rated.

I'm a Bad Neighbor...

Me and my wife (she was my fiance at the time) Kim moved into our first house in May of 2008.

You would think we would know at least some of the neighbors on a first name basis.  Not only do we not know their names, we've barely spoken to any of them.

We do know a few, but only in the very brief, "Hey how ya doin?" and in the house/car you go kinda way.

To the left of us there is a young married couple, I assume only a couple years older than I am (I'm 27 FYI).  I should know them right?  But I don't.  I know the wife is Julie and the husband I can't for the life remember his name.  It could be Brian.  I'm not really sure.  I should pay way more attention to people than I actually do.
