Your “Don’t Get Drunk and Slam The Door” Sunday Evening Open Thread

Beerguyrob

A Canadian man-child of indeterminate age, he stays young by selling alcohol at sporting events and yelling at the patrons he serves. Their rage nourishes his soul, and their tips pay for his numerous trips to various sporting events.

 

So, how was your day? If there’s no more write-up than this, I am still drinking after working the day game at Nat Bailey.

Serious question: have we reached a generation of people that haven’t ever worked service jobs as a rite of passage? Because it seems a lot of young’uns sure as shit don’t know about tipping, or feel at ease not dropping a few bucks. Twice in two days, I’ve served groups of 10 people $70 in beers, and been stiffed each time. Now, I don’t expect a large amount, but it you’ve paid me with a $100 bill, and I’ve given you a $20 & two $5s back, common fucking courtesy dictates you reward the guy who huffed your beers up to your seats. Oh, and don’t act surprised when none of the other hawkers returns to your section; stories get around.

Anyways – end of rant. I did find this awesome flashback to the era of four channels & family night:

Your move, society.

Tonight’s sports:

  • Futbol:
    • CONCACAF Copa Oro 2017:
      • Curacao vs. México – 5:00 PM | UNI / FS1
    • Campeón de Campeones:
      • Tigres vs. Chivas – 7:30 PM | UNI
  • Beisbol:
    • Yankees at  Red Sox – 5:00 PM | ESPN / TSN

ENJOY THE EVENING!

I want to go be productive but every 30 seconds I hear that MEEP MEEP MEEP and I am just enraged again. I know I sound insane but deal with it every single day for years and get back to me.

Alright I’ll say it: I love Lady Mormont. She guilt trips like a mother, and has the steely conviction of overachieving teens.
If she ever has a scene with Varys, I may may faint from a geek-out.

I swear to god I am gonna just destroy all the construction equipment at some point. 3 years of MEEP. MEEP. MEEP at 5 am would drive anyone insane.

What is the etiquette on mowing your lawn at 7 am when construction people have been out there for 2 hours? I would be the least loud thing out there, plus I want to get it done because it is my dad’s birthday

Don T

That’s an easy one. Loaf. But enough of my fantasies.
Go ahead. Get that outta the way ASAP. If you get complainin’ say “I’m being productive you slacker!”, sigh heavily and wipe your brow overdramatically.
Glad to ser you’re OK man.

A young Asian girl called me “Sir” today while working out. She wanted to use the bench. I’ve never felt so old.

I think I saw that video, then my wife walked in and I had to minimize.

I hate having to minimize when I’m….ummmm, maximized.

Me entering the gym: Ok, I watched Minizilla for 9 hours and got my ass handed to me. It’s leg day, so instead of running the track, I’ll do the treadmill.

/sees gorgeous desi wearing skin tight blue yoga pants and takes off her shirt to go running in a skimpy top on the track

Wakezilla : On second thought, I’ll just go for a run on the track.

Only reason I still go to a gym

Romonobyl

Yoga pants are a gift, but should be limited to a size 6. Same applies to men’s Speedos, which should be outlawed outside of the French Riviera.

@Romonobyl GoT would be hard to live blog. So many people use HBOGo or HBONow to watch it. I use HBOGo and I would be a good 50 seconds ahead of you at all times if I do what I did today and hit refresh on the site til it showed up and skip the ads for their shows. Like 3 to 4 min ahead if I skipped the previously on and 2 minute credit roll.

Romonobyl

I also heard, from a friend, that there were other methods involving that information superhighway thing that all the kids are crazy about.

Marc Trestmans Windowless Van

Speaking of GoT, I would kill to sit down for a few beers with Peter Dinklage.

…..He wouldn’t…… even…. HAVE TO SIT.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Somewhere online (maybe…[shudders]…Uproxx?) someone was telling a story about hanging out with him at a funeral. He was not impressed with the poster’s antics.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

One time in San Diego we had two pretty large meals (a dinner and a breakfast the following day) and had the same waitress for both. Kind of a neat coincidence. She made a big deal about us tipping really well though I hadn’t remembered it being anything special.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Oh, if anyone is wondering what’s the deal with such a random story it’s cause I’ve been drinking.

Romonobyl

As long as you tipped appropriately, your buzz is deserved.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Just the tip?

No no — that was totally interesting. Keep the hits coming.

Did I mention it was two different restaurants in two completely different parts of town? I guess that was probably obvious.

theeWeeBabySeamus

That makes it a little less boring, yes.

This one time I was pumping gas.
Then I finished.
The end.

You rubbed one out while getting gas? Dude!

No, that’s a different story.

It happened in a questionable Mexican joint…..errrrr I mean restaurant.

NYT now reporting Sen McCain’s surgery may be more serious than previously thought. You heard it hear first: the GOP will kill off McCain and use the wait for a runoff to fill his seat as their excuse for not putting the health care bill to a vote.

I’m just waiting for Trump to confuse his twitter for Google and tweet “is felony murder an impeachable offense?”

And use it as an excuse to pass the bill, don’t forget that.

Great first new episode of Game of Thrones. There was one big scene that I was expecting that I somehow knew exactly what was gonna happen down to the beats in the story telling, it was still good.

As to your complaints about people tipping. I worked in the service industry a bunch so I over tip normally.

Romonobyl

Would have made a good live blog.

Always have an escape clause.

Recently got back from the E.R. The Boy was playing basketball, his life, religion and reason for existence, when he got tripped up and fell hard on his back. Knocked the wind out of him bad, but he felt OK after a minute or two. That’s when he decided to cough up a little blood.
That qualified a phone call to dear old Dad. I hauled ass to pick him up while he talked to Dame Nobyl (not his Mother, but is still mom), who’s an RN.
X-rays are clear, just a mild bruised lung and a sore as hell back. Why I’m not totally grey haired is a miracle. Parenthood is fun you guys!

ROAD HOUSE IS THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER

Patrick Swayze (RIP) was far better looking than me, so therefore…gay.
I don’t make the rules, I don’t break the rules.
(OK, I totally made that rule).

There was just a Snake Plisskin in-joke. Your point is validated.

Was there? Hmmm. In the meantime here’s John Doe from X in ROAD HOUSE, the greatest motion picture ever made:

People keep telling him “I thought you’d be bigger”. In Escape From LA they keep telling Snake “I thought you’d be taller.”

Actually I just found out it is Bill Murray who calls Kelly Lynch’s husband (who is a friend of his) every time Road House is on TV – which means he must call him a lot I guess

Just saw that George Romero died.

Night of the Living Dead was an amazing film. He had a lot of trouble getting the film shown originally because of two things…

1) the little girl eating her dead mother…

2) the main hero, a black man, slaps a panicking white woman..

I wasn’t a fan of his later zombie films. He was however, a visionary.

Romonobyl

Pluses and minuses.
