    something about WalMart also kind of brings out the human detritus. I live in one of the 20 richest counties in the country, the kind of place where everyone's dressed for tennis and the mere sight of my old beat-up Saturn is a glaring faux pas, but the Walmart a few blocks down the street somehow manages to conjure a clientele of 400-lb women with six kids or dudes with their underwear hanging out of their pants seemingly out of thin air.

    what a weird trip

    i went to the corner store to buy some milk

    i've been in there a bunch of times (and chased out a couple of jerky teenagers once) so i kinda know the family that owns it

    anyway, one of their kids is complaining aloud about not understanding his algebra homework

    and the parent's trying to help him between customers

    so i offered to help and explained his homework. and to his parents' credit they gathered around so that they could understand it as well to help him in the future.

    the awkward part was that some other customers came in and did the awkward 'cough for attention, i want to be served' thing and the mom said EXCUSE ME, WE BE ONE SECOND

    it was funny but i was finishing up at that point

    Man, this is why I hate having large bills on me. I have a $100 bill and a ten and three ones. I usually like to get a lot of chinese takeout (like $15 worth) and eat it over the course of the day / next day, but no way in hell are they going to change a benjamin.

    Ya know, this whole Dynagrip/Jokerman thing is one of the Secret Santa things that I worry about.

    I would hate to get a present for someone, them not like it, and talk about how much they don't like it on the forums. I don't know how any of you would feel about it, but I would feel AWFUL.

    If you give the deliveryman one anyway, you will probably make his week, or month. Maybe even year. An $80-90 tip might not be the best thing that happens to him this year but it will probably be totally unexpected so it will seem spectacular.

    But alas I need the money and spent waaaaaaay too much money this week taking out my ladyfriend and visited some buddy's restaurants/bars last night and was a baller at those places.

    Jokerman had a friend who went on a trip to India buy Dynagrip a Buddha head.

    It did not receive a good reception.

    Fast forward to this year, Dynagrip commented on religious iconography in this Wishlist and Jokerman took offense.

    That seems like a really thoughtful and unique gift to get from someone on the internet. Who wouldn't like that?

    I would hate to put a lot of thought into Secret Santas every time I participate and do the best that I can for my Santee but then my Santa immediately throws up their hands, goes whoops, couldn't figure out what to get you, so I asked this dude I know to pick you something up off the street and oh yeah, I'll send it in a box stuffed with shredded newspaper, no note or any word whatsoever who it came from.

    A surprising number of girls on this forum are playing Skyrim. I wouldn't think a game about dragon slaying would be appealing to the fairer sex.

    Reasons Skyrim has crashed today:

    1. I picked up a carrot.
    2. I cast a spell.
    3. I spoke to someone.
    4. I was walking.

    It was seriously the worst present I've ever gotten. I thought it was sent as a big "fuck you" and yet satisfy the barest requirements of Secret Santas. It was also like 3 weeks late.

    When I posted pictures of it other posters called it "epic", so this shit isn't just in my head.

    Hey, you didn't like it and that will happen. He apologized twice in that very thread that you didn't like it.

    To bring it up 2 years later in Secret Santa is over the line IMO.
