Creeped out...

As my Mom sits recovering from a recent procedure (I'm keeping her company) I'm finding her roommate anything but charming. Nice enough, I suppose, but her Ring Tone and her constantly calling her husband a f'ing idiot (note, she expanded the f, often) and her firm, nay unquestionable belief that Hillary Clinton is a , and I'm quoting here, "Tramp that murdered that black guy.....you don't really think they weren't involved do you?" Yes, I clarified that she was talking about Vince Foster, so......okay.........as we say in Caleefornia "whatever, dude."

Okay, once you get past this, she's not that bad, but if I had to share the room 24 hours a day with her, I'd probably switch rooms. My mom doesn't seem to mind too much, she's way more tolerant than I.

Dude - sorry to hear about your mom. Hope she has a speedy recovery. But at least that explains the sudden increase in blogging. (grin)

I'm pretty old school Internet (mail/chat) versus the new school based on phones (voice/text) and it constantly amazes me the level of obnoxiousness that can be reached with these things (loud obscene calls on a train, a ringtone consisting of loud laughter and expletives). We, as a society, used to be able to handle things a little better in public.

I haveto admit a bit of hypocracy, as my ring is a little loud, but its classical music and clearly -not- patti labelle, the eye of the tiger or any 80's hair band rips.

I had to Google who Vince Foster was (and thank you Wikipedia for the final answer).

Dude wasn't black.

Who was she talking about?

I'm sorry, but anyone who shares anything musical with Dr. Laura Schlesinger needs to have their head examined. I'm sure that's not what she's in for, unfortunately.

Brian: No clue, man, I was stuck on the murdered thing to notice the casual racism.
