Really, Checkbook Users?

Can we let this die out already? Seriously, stop using checkbooks in stores. We now live in a world where we want things now and we want them fast, so nothing is worst than being in a checkout line behind someone who pulls out the infamous checkbook

Really? Why Do I Want To Beat My Co-Worker?

We all have a person like this at our workplace, right? Someone who is annoying yet can be funny, but basically just acts like a complete jackass. This person is sometimes a cubemate or someone you have to share an office with, but in my case it’s the guy about 10 feet away from me on the other side of the wall.

Really? How Much Stuff Do You Need To Bring?

I was out driving a lot this past weekend and since it was one of the last beautiful weekends, it was clear everyone was anxious to get outside. I’m driving down the interstate, in the Right lane by the way; no Left lane cruising on my watch, and I notice this vehicle pulling a trailer.

Really? Does ANYONE Know the Left Lane is for Passing Only?

This feels more like an annual public service announcement than just my own personal rant. I do find myself asking these questions more and more often when driving: Do people even know the left lane is for passing only and not just cruising in it?

Really? Who Packages This Stuff?

I was in the store last weekend and turned to walk down the light bulb aisle. Just as I walked around the corner, a guy dropped a pack of light bulbs. *Crash* Broken glass everywhere. He looked up at me panicked

Really? Who Crapped in the Pool?

I was at an awesome hotel a few weeks ago and my friends and I were hanging at the pool. Just as we’re really relaxing and swimming, the lifeguard comes by and tells everyone to get out of the pool. I’m thinking ok, it must have been a little kid who had an accident, threw up or something like that

The High School Football season continues with week 2. I admittedly underestimated Rocori last week. The Spartans pounded Brainerd in Brainerd to avenge the only loss they suffered in 2011.

Really, Jerk Flight Attendant?

Unfortunately, summer is officially over, school has started and back to reality. I took quite a few vacations this summer and I could probably do an entire series on flying alone, but the one I'm starting with is a certain flight attendant I got to experience. Normally, flight attendants I've flown with are so over-the-top friendly that you want to pop your eyes out with spoons, but then this guy comes along.

After looking at the schedules and knowing what each team has back I like the prospects of St. Cloud Tech in 2012.
