- Me, describing my state of affairs with a co-worker.
One of my most commonly (over)used phrases is “to make a long story short” and all its derivatives. So to make a long story short, there have been a number of long stories that are too circuitous and fucked to make short.
Upshot of it all, I feel like my life has split in to two worlds and going to and from work has become a portal between them. I generally try to refrain from posting nonsense about work (honestly, who cares) but in this case, I feel the need to blow off a steam and at the same time say that as long as I’ve got cheap beer, awesome TV, football season, good friends and a beautiful lady I think I’ll make it.
Just remember, that nobody circles the wagons, like the Buffalo Bills.
What a dick.
Today was supposed to be easy you cocksuckers.

Adventures in wing night, brought to you by Slam Rubes.
So a few of us ventured out for 20 cent wings last night. Slamuel, being ever the gentleman, ordered 5 of each kind (buffalo and bbq) a few minutes before I got there. Upon sitting down, I asked the waiter to put in an order for 10 more of each, to which he jokingly (or so we thought) responded, “You guys have like 100 wings on their way out.” Steph thought something was up, which led to an exchange where each person seemed to think the other was still joking— somehow a fictitious hose full of bbq sauce was involved, I don’t know…
Upshot of it all is shortly after the beers came out we all saw the waiter bringing out the result of a delicious— and fortunately inexpensive— miscommunication. He thought we wanted 5 orders of each, totaling 100 for 6 people (one who was not eating wings, two petite ladies, and 3 dudes with only myself matching the profile of the type of person who’d embark on such an endeavor). After a laugh and some negotiation, he took back the last 25 count pile and left us with 75…
Needless to say, we crushed it. 15 Bucks and 18.75 dismembered chickens later, these were my personal results:
Thanks to Slam for a tasty mistake.
