BAHAHAHAHA! My favorite lines: "As it jerked me off my feet and started dragging me across the ground, it occurred to me that having a deer on a rope was not nearly as good an idea as I originally imagined." and "Did you know that deer bite? They do!"  ;D
*ahem* Now back to our regularly scheduled snowstorm... ;)

Memorial is a mix of old and new more new than old. Yes I grew up there but in a 1970's ranch house that was built before the neighborhood really took off - the coworker who made the comment knows exactly were I grew up - she is from Spring Branch - the "other side of the Tracks")

Highland Park is actually a separate city, completely enclosed in Dallas. It and its sister city, University Park, are nicknamed "The Bubble" for the denizens' insular views.

I encountered a SS at the movies the other night.  My husband and I went to see Django Unchained, which - as you may know - is pretty long (it's about 2 hours 45 minutes).  Just as the movie was starting, I crossed my legs, and my foot accidentally brushed the back of the seat in front of me.  And when I say "brushed", I really mean it - I didn't kick it or even tap it.  That didn't stop the seat's owner from turning around and giving me the Glare of Death.

I was paranoid for the 2 hours 45 minutes that followed every time I had to shift position, thinking that I was going to touch his seat again and start a fight.

did you HAVE to say the SS was from Texas and you were in NJ?  Now everyone will think Texans are SSs   ;D
and we aren't!!!  She was probably from Dallas, they are real spesh-ul there   ;)

I live in the DFW area and I'm definitely not a SS.  I therefore demand compensation for the anguish you have caused me, plus pay any dr fees incurred due to my having to see a specialist to deal with the trauma.  Oh, and you'll most likely be hearing from my lawyer............................... >:D


--- Quote from: Dindrane on February 21, 2013, 11:00:12 PM ---(which means they are sort of mottled)  I can't count the number of times I've gone up to the counter to wash my hands and come away with a giant water spot on my shirt.

--- End quote ---

It's not just brushing teeth, it seems some people can't wash their hands without soaking the counter.  I understand your hands are wet and they will drip as you reach for a paper towel, but please wipe it up.  I have had the misfortune of not getting my shirt wet, but the front of my pants since I have leaned against the counter while washing my hands.  It now looks like I couldn't hold it and had an accident on the way to the bathroom.  I rush back to my desk and hope it dries before I have to get up again.  What gets me is that most of the people that are using the men's room are well educated professionals but I swear a lot of them are complete slobs.
