I Would Like ...

... to express my profound regret and sorrow to the hapless Pizza Joint Workers who are forced to answer the phone by saying: "Thanks for calling The Pizza Joint, where we go the extra smile." That is just wrong.

... for this fucking Alien that has been gnawing at me for lo these many weeks to just let the other shoe drop and burst through my ribcage, already. (Indigestion, my ass. It's an Alien, I tell ya. NO, it's not a heart attack, or ulcer, because I can't afford either.)

... to not to have to juggle numbers around in my head to see if I can really afford to plunk down $10 and change for a Pizza Joint Pizza.

... for the damn people who are just watching my ebay crap to bid, already. I'm juggling numbers for pizza and I have an Alien life form in my chest. Cut me a break, already.

... to stop overusing the word 'already', already.

Even worse than the pizza guys are the ppor hapless Blockbuster video workers who have to answer the phone in the following manner:

"Thank you for calling Blockbuster Video on XYZ Street where you can now preorder a copy of XYZ video. This is XYZ, how may I help you?"

Additionally, they are required to answer the phone within the first two rings, and if you are a customer who wants to know every video that came out last week, this week, and what's coming out next week, they have to read the Coming Soon board to you. Top that off with the fact that often, there are often only one or two workers in the store. Craziness - that company is the spawn of Satan.

Yeah, but they get 5 free movies a week, so it's a trade-off.
