dammit, people!

- Dammit, people - if you're vomiting and have diahrrea, don't come into work (they were later hospitalized for dehydration). You might just have the Noro Virus and your baby-boomer work ethic just got everyone else at work sick too. Since you have 14 days of unused sick leave, don't you think you could afford to stay at home? The cogs will continue to click and whirr while you're gone, and the earth will not stop spinning if you recuperate at home. Do you think your work ethic will be recognized when you bring the bird flu into work and share it with everyone?

- Dammit, people - a 10-minute sleet "storm" that melts when it hits the pavement does not fall into the "red alert" urban emergency category. Chill out, and again, just stay home if it's snowing. Ever heard of telecommuting? Stay home and make a nice soup, bake bread or a batch of toll house cookies. And while I'm on the subject, how is it that I get more accurate weather outlooks from gay weather enthusiasts than I do from StormCenter 7? The answer is because the gay weather freak is more interested in the weather than reporting sensational news, which in turn gains more viewership.

- Dammit, people - don't think your ammunition, police radio, bullet-resistant vests, body armor and photography equipment is safe when locked in your car in DC. Aren't you supposed to check that equipment in at night? Now your stuff is on the streets in the trigger-happy hands of street burglars. Again, this isn't Sterling or Fairfax.

- Dammit, people - this ridiculous body hair trimming and eyebrow sculpting thing is out of control. How much time did you spend on that topiary? Let it grow natural and beautiful like a grand oak, not like a boxwood hedge.

That is just not right. Trimming your chest hair maybe, but sculpting it into shape? That is just not acceptable.... It's all about a nice natural furry chest :)

That's some seriously fucked up hair cutting. Don't they know how ridiculous they look?

That guy in the pic looks like he got run over by a gang of lawn mowers and someone can get gored by those nipples!

What's the difference between shaping your eyebrows and say..shaping your goatee? If all trimming should stop, then shouldn't all men with facial hair look like Grizzly Adams as anything but a full beard requires constant maintenance.

Then I say Yaaay! for all the Grizzly Adams' out there! Seriously though, there is a point where one should just let it be, and there are instances (like in that pic) where it's gone beyond that point.

Oh come on, if your boyfriend had a chest like that wouldn't you be willing to put up with just a bit of silliness now and then? (And who was it who shaved it ALL off and went out in drag just a couple of months ago?)

Obviously, the SA who's rig got broken into didn't lock his auto gun vault. Because you have to have special tools to break into them...

Oh well, he'll get to serve his 45 days on the bricks w/o pay.

Stupid agents.
