WTF Retail: During a quick trip for bread and milk at a nearby grocery store I spotted the discount carts. There among the dinged packages and Easter Candy was a package of what at first looked like craft foam. However when it was pulled out from under the Peeps it turned out to be a set of these masks.
They’re children’s masks for Passover. No disprespect intended for anybody who’s celebrating the old testament, but I find these both funny and slightly disturbing. My favorites are Lice and Boils, although the dead eyes of the First Born mask run a close second. Yes, I bought them. They were only one dollar and now we have Halloween covered.
WTF HMOs: Today I waited for 6 hours for a nurse to call me back to determine if he/she thought I really needed and appointment to see a doctor or if I could be cured via telephone. The call never came. Perhaps they hope patients will just die and not bother them anymore. Lord help us if we ever switch to socialized medicine. Soilent Green anyone?
