Days and Times like these

Das are quite nice, however Times are something else. Our
days are lumped into times, and over these times we
change. we never change from day to day, just from time
to time. but that's overly cliche already.
the basic thing is this. although i don't see my days
changing much (in essence my life) but as i look over the
past time span of 3 years i realize how much it has.
morevoer i realize how much the external factors have
changed. i mean we live in shitty times. or do we?
i really can't decide.
what i do know is that although a lot of things seem to
suck and then get better and so forth life has pretty much
treated me well.
today i was at kroger. i bought some stuff and i wanted a
good wrapped. the lady hovering aroudn the wrapping
counter tried REALLY hard not to see me, but i caught her
eye (finally). so then i ask her if she could wrap it.
but "this isn't her department", because apparently work
specialization requires a grueling 3 minute training
course on how to wrap something. so ms. knuckle-dragger
grunts about how the "place is closed anyhow", to which i
kindly ask if I could wrap it. well, it seems that
they've had some deaths with people trying to wrap shit
themselves so i was quickly hustled to the cashier.
now i love kroger check out, it's a computer where you
scan your own shit, and it works great......as long as you
don't care if it works great.
today it said to me,
"please scan your kroger plus card, if you do not have a
kroger plus card, please push no"
i scan my kroger plus card.
"please scan your kroger plus card, if you do not have a
kroger plus card, please push no"
i scan my kroger plus card.
"please scan your kroger plus card, if you do not have a
kroger plus card, please push no"
ok, that's it, i push no. then it tells me to scan my
item...then it tells me to scan my item...then it tells me
to scan my item. finally i get it to work, and then i
have to place the item in the bag.
the bag appears to be a space of .0005 centimeters so if
you don't get it right, try, try, again. finally i'm done.
then i have to fucking use my card to scan and that
doesn't work......argh!
i'm back in my car.....and after a second i realize my
parking break is still on (thank god i didn't go far).
what i need is an idiot protection. if i leave my parking
break up i need something that punches me in the nuts, and
says, "hey, jerkoff! get the fucking parking break off".
i think those are standard in dodge rams.
