Mmmmm...Arby's Breakfast....

So, I'm driving by Arby's yesterday and they are big into advertising their hours. Not as big as Ralph Harris is at sucking at stand-up comedy, but big none the less. Picture Roseanne. About that big. Give or take a waffle.

But, more to the point, their opening hours are highlighted on the window in that fluorescent paint like substance that we all hate. But here are their hours:

Weekdays: Open at 6am
Saturday: Open at 7am
Sunday: Open at 8am

Now, I don't have a problem with that. I'm sure there are people in the world that need a Big Beef 'N Cheddar at 6 in the morning. And, if the Rubes are buyin', someone ought to be sellin'.

What gets me is the Sunday hours. Who in the world is going to have all of the following on Sunday morning: (this isn't an either/or must hit the trifecta)

a) Up at that time (I will be, but I'm a freak of a good way)
b) Have the drive to, um, drive to Arby's
c) Be craving a Big Beef 'N Cheddar

My guess is that early morning shift is about as exciting as being the "Hat Guru" at Lids at MOA. Or the "Magnet Jockey" at the Magnet Zone.

My point is, the shift sucks, they'll make no money, no one wants Arby's on Sunday morning, so just open at noon like a regular place you inconsiderate morons.

Does this affect me? No. But I assume everyone will get pissed off and avoid Arby's like people avoid...Roseanne. And they sure as crup don't want that...

Comcast van??

When I came home from Lifetime today, I was driving along, minding my own business, trying to figure out who would win if Bigfoot indian leg-wrestled the Loch Ness Monster (it's Bigfoot, by the way, as Nessie has small, girlish appendages). Then, I finally got home. The image above is what greeted me.

Now, I know most of you are thinking, "So what? What's the big deal, stupid? Boo-hoo-hoo someone parked in front of my house. Wah-wah. I'm a big baby and I don't know how to use the big boy toilet yet."
Now, first off, you're rather mean and crude. And I'm working on the toilet thing. I swear. The results just haven't been that positive. Just ask Alison. But that's neither here nor there. Seriously, just take a closer look at the above picture.

Notice anything strange? At all? Well, I'll tell you then Einstein. Look at the circled cones. Yes, there are cones set to the front and back of the Comcast van.
"What are these cones for?" you ask.
Well, I think it's quite obvious the cones are there to notify you that the van is there. But, don't you think if you can't see the van, you're probably not going to be able to see the cones around it? I mean, seriously, what's the point of this? Is it so I don't hit the van? "Crup! I almost hit that van! Didn't see it at all! Good thing they had those notifying cones there!"
This is ridiculous and makes me sad. But perhaps there's a new customer for the Flash Flare Pro. Who knew cable companies would need something like that??
