Happy Wednesday y'all! I've been watching too much Nashville and desperately want to be Southern so I've started saying y'all. Here's my weekly WTF moments from my not-so-Southern life in Ontario:
Reader Comment of the Week: One of my dear friends posted this picture on Facebook last night. It is an advertisement for a local gym offering a free workout and pizza...for everyone! Now, I don't know about you, but this seems really counterproductive. They really should be offering something healthier than pizza. What kind of message is this gym sending? However, with the name "Fit 4 Less" it already sounds like they cut corners. Also note, it was March 5 when she saw the sign and the class was for February 27. Seems like they are too busy eating pizza to remove the outdated sign!
- There's a new barista at my regular Starbucks. She only makes drinks. Therefore, she has to call your drink out once it's done. She also has a baby voice. Every time I hear "Grande pike misto for Tracey" it sounds as if Tommy Pickles from Rugrats is calling my drink.
- I had stopped in at the mall after work to quickly exchange something and upon entering saw a girl in her mid-twenties being escorted from the mall by security. She looked like she was drunk. (It was 4:30 p.m. by the way) I was in the mall for maybe ten minutes and when I came back out the security guards were trying to get her into a cab and she was refusing. I then hear them say "Well the cops are here so we will let them handle this." I look up and see a police cruiser pulling into the parking lot. The girl loses it. She starts throwing a tantrum, like four year old styles - jumping up and down, pouting, shaking her fists and whining, "Nooo! Noooo!" She was causing the biggest scene and making a total fool of herself. I left before the police officers took over, but boy she should have just got into the cab. She was probably going to leave with a warning, but now it was more likely she was off to the station.
- My fiance received a letter with a South African stamp on it. However, the letter inside was from "Acru Asset Management Ltd." in Hong Kong. They were writing to let him know that they discovered $17 million left to his late ancestor and all they needed was a telephone and fax number and we would be millionaires! Do people actually think these scams are real? We have no idea how someone in South Africa got our address, but we likely won't be seeing any dolla billz anytime soon.
- Poor John Travolta. I'm sure you've all heard how he straight up butchered Adele Dazeem, I mean Idina Menzel's name at the Oscars. Some people are saying Travolta suffers from dyslexia and has a hard time reading off teleprompters. To that I say, he is an actor who, by profession, is forced to memorize hundreds of pages of dialogue. He couldn't memorize her name? In honour of this epic mishap, Travoltify your name. Mine is Teejay Thompseen.
