    To Whom It May Concern,

    You require a walker/frame. You walk very slowly.

    Why the fook did you start crossing a rather busy street when the traffic light was yellow, ready to turn red, in the direction you were crossing? Your walker has a nice seat. Use it!

    (The guy was hit by a car, the driver couldn't see him. He was lucky that he wasn't hit/run over by the streetcar.)

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    You own/pilot a speedboat. You don't need to slow down after the bridge was raised. Hell, your boat was small enough to fit under said bridge when it was fooking down.

    (The boat was one of those that can be used for waterskiing, but too small for sleeping on. Nobody was being towed, either. The bus was delayed long enough for me to let another passenger know that the Peppa Pig tour was going to be in Milwaukee in October.)

    To Whom It May Concern #3,

    Can you read? The little convenience store on the ground floor of the student union couldn't take your credit card because the system was undergoing maintenance (I actually tripped over the sign going in) plus they're going into the summer hours, which means that they close at 4:30 pm. You want a cola? Vending machines Practically everywhere in the union! Go to town! I purchased two frozen items, which aren't sold outside the union except at either grocery stores or gas station/convenience stores.

    When me dad passed his share of the farm was automatically split between my brother and myself. Upon my demise same thing, my share will automatically go to my son. Well, since I don't materially participate in the operation and my son does, figured I'd give my share to him now as a wedding present. Had no idea the legal wrangling that entails. Took three attorneys and a judge to sort it! -o_O

    Couldn't you have sold it to him for a dollar?

    I'm sure the attorneys cost a little doing it this way.

    Bit the other way....

    Nah, has to do with the way our particular shares are structured. Legal fees weren't that bad though, 2 of the lawyers are more or less on payroll and the 3rd works for the state. Basically, just needed an addendum allowing succession prior to death and then get a judge to sign off on it. That took 3 go's.

    Sounds like a cake walk vs dying to get it accomplished! Congrats, success.

    Takes about a thousand drops to learn a new juggling trick and have it ready for stage. I guess that causes me to look at life differently.

    No worries, Luv. Course me son may need a drink once he realizes henceforth his wages are paid from his own share. :D

    To Whom It May Concern,

    It would've been nice if you could've let me know that you were leaving the agency and going back to Kansas City. :rolleyes:

    Why did I have to find out through the receptionist? Besides, I need to know who's going to get me home from my teeth extraction...

    To Whom It May Concern,

    I'm allergic to pork products and whole/2% milk (I don't know what causes the reaction from pork, but it's the fats in the milk that I react to [have been allergic to dairy fats since I was knee-high to a grass snake].) Please withhold the pork tenderloins and the gallons of whole milk from my share of free food. I appreciate the dried pinto beans and the lite fruit coctail was used as snacks to go with my medications.

    The only ones who can eat pork in my apartment are :kitty:s, and they don't need an entire tenderloin! I'm trying to get rid of both the milk and pork, but nobody seems to want them.

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    Why did it take your replacement less than an hour to reschedule my teeth extractions, and have a backup plan in place in case she couldn't make it herself, while you inconvenienced both the oral surgical team and me not only the time that I actually went to get the procedure done, but subsequent times that I could've had the situation with my mouth taken care of! My diabetes and my cardiac condition are intertwined with the health of said teeth! I hope that you enjoy your new home in Kansas City, plus I hope that you have to deal with someone whose case is more complicated than mine!

    To Whom It May Concern,

    Why am I getting another new caseworker? It's been less than a fooking month since I was handed over to the one that I have atm. *headdesk*

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    Yes, I am hirsute. It's none of your d@mned business what's going on with me (I'm IS) since you're not my PCP, endocrinologist or OB/GYN! BACK OFF.

    To Whom It May Concern #3,

    Stop scalping tickets for guest bands at Summerfest. Ditto buying up souvenir t-shirts, then hiking the price on those. (the particular band that I know of that this happened to was the one that I saw today, who came from at least three, possibly four, countries that used to be in the former Soviet Union.)

    Be grateful that I didn't scream, "Scalpers!" while I was leaving because there were several law enforcement personel around us, all armed. Ditto within earshot of the band I saw (can you say, "International Incident"? I knew you could!)
