    Ever been to an art school gallery?

    Amy studied a Bachelors degree in fine arts (she's quite the painter and sculptor), and the many student exhibitions were always a smorgasbord of shit wth maybe one or two interesting and/or meaningful pieces somewhere.

    For instance, one kid spent a couple of days recording ambient noise from riding the bus to and from Uni, and played this noise from a stereo hiden inside an old chest freezer with a pile of rotting meat sitting on top of it.

    I couldn't figure it out. Even after I read his explanation of it.

    What, that's totally easy. The daily routine after numerous years, the rotting flesh symbolizing the rotting minds and bodies of the work drones.

    I don't really count simple substitution for worthwhile art

    I used to work for a company that did asbestos investigations. I had to take a bunch of plaster samples in an old folks' home which included a dementia wing. It is a tonne of fun to be carrying a ladder and a satchel full of sample bags around Alzheimer's patients.

    One guy followed me around the entire hour and a half I was there telling me every couple of minutes that he liked my coat and that I should let him have it. As I was taking samples from above the ceiling tiles (standing on my ladder), he kept tugging at it as though that would make me take it off and give it to him. While he was doing this, an old lady came up and grabbed the ladder and tried to swing it back and forth, possibly so I would fall off and give the guy my coat.

    All the exit doors had keypads beside them and nobody had told me the pass code so I set off through the horde of shambling elderlies, looking for somebody who could let me out. One of the nurses or orderlies shouted down the hall, "The code is 3-4-8-2. Nobody here will be able to figure it out so don't bother shielding it from their view. Just make sure they don't escape."

    Man, the day I quite Blockbuster, the other one in town sent the 1.25 I owed for a 'restocking fee' (I know it's bullshit, I worked there) sent my account info to collections. I can't fathom why; I've only ever worked at that store on a couple nights when they needed the help, and the guy wasn't half the ass my own manager was.

    I gave him the money back in nickels, made him and watched him send off the 'received payment' info by mail, made him sign a paper that said I paid, and flipped him off as I left.

    That would require extra effort on my part. I didn't have pennies, but I did manage to gather up enough loose change in my room that happened to have over a buck 25 in just nickels.

    Also, this is the same store that I went into to put my name on a reservation list for the RB2 bundle for the Wii, because Wal-Mart was consistently giving me the 'not in yet' response, and I figured well they called me last year when I put my name down for a Wii, and one of my buddies who still works at my old store says they get pretty regular shipments, why not? So after putting my name down on my old store's list, I go here, and ask to do the same. Some bimbo behind the counter tells me "Yeah we don't do that here. First come first serve, and besides, you'll have to get it before ME". I left and say on the way out "That's one Rewards membership you're not getting tonight. Oh, say hi to <district manager's name> next time she's in too". That put a good look on her face.

    Turns out two days later I had a guy check the backstock in Wal-Mart and they had one, stopped at Blockbuster, pressed it against the window and pointed at it, then left. No, I didn't have the foresight to say "You like apples?"

    I used to live next to this guy, right. I went over to chill one day and he's in the middle of a phone conversation when he lets me in. I sit there and listen to him go on this big tirade about how the morals of America are just gone nowadays, and it's all the fault of big business. This is an hour long conversation after I arrive - who knows how long it was going beforehand. Americans take all their social cues from big business, whether they know it or not - so businesses need to stand up and start treating people right! It's just like those minorities in the inner city. Businesses feed on them and they learn from the businesses to feed on others. If the businesses would just fucking grow a pair we'd be out of this slump that all of America is in! There's so much more that I just lost in the blur of it all.

    He was on the phone to Samsung over a dead pixel that showed up in his TV a year after purchasing it.

    One time I pooped on some ants. I was out camping and had to shit like mad, so I whip out the shovel and dig a hole for my poop. The ground was covered in pine needles, and all these carpenter ants come out and fall down in my latrine hole. Whatever. I had to shit. Pushed my pants to my knees, grabbed the cuffs and pulled up (so as not to let my pants sit on the ground) squatted over that hole full of ants and did a shit on 'em.
