4:00 in the afternoon, starting in the mirror I noticed a couple dents in my forehead. Triangle shaped dents, they were a perfect fit for the pads on my CPAP mask.
Mrs S poked her head in “Now what’r you whining about?”
“Look at my head” “What”, she didn’t see it. “Look” I said, pointing at the indentations. that f’ing CPAP has left permanent dents in my head. Look how lame I look”.
“Grow some bangs.”
That’s exactly the kind of help I was looking for.
From the the “douche” department..
Check out this exchange:
First from out of the blue:
I have your nook. It was in the lost and found for about a year before someone had a way to plug it in and see your email.
I can put it back charged and you can claim it if you like
Ok, a little weird. My Nook was ripped off about 2 years ago out of my bag. But you know, years of cynical internet scams left me a little suspicious, especially when they start with “I have your..” so I responded with a question, what coffee shop. The answer “Fire Roast in Minneapolis”. Since I’ve never been in there before I assume the person who ripped it off left it there. Not saying this broad was the one.. but I sent the following-
If you wouldn’t mind leaving it at the coffee shop that would be awesome.
my nook was stolen out of my brief case on the bus, so whom ever left it at the shop wasn’t me. That’s why I didn’t recognize the place or circumstances.
And got this cryptic response.
Wow! In that case I’ll leave it with a librarian, Fire Roast is way out of my way. St. Paul Central OK?
Hmm now we’re back to weird. Why would she leave it with a librarian.. Now I’m back to thinking scam. And I’m also pissy. As I can be.
Fuck it You can have it.
And she responded
Thanks man, sorry you got robbed.
Which I followed up with
I’m sure you are all tore up.
Mrs S and the eldest little S were pissed. “its your Nook ask to get it back.”
So I did, and I got no response. And now I’m pissy. Again.
So detective here figures 1) They know her at the coffee shop, why would they give her something out of the lost and found if they didn’t. 2) She lives in St.Paul. 3) She’s jonzing for reward money. 4) She has no sense of right and wrong.
So, being that I spend a lot of time in St. Paul, but have no idea where the Central Library might be I suggested she leave it J&S Coffee.
I haven’t heard back.
My own fault but I still hold there’s a right thing to do here and this chick ain’t doing it. I think I’m more pissed off about finding a person who doesn’t give a shit about doing what’s right. I wouldn’t even hesitate a second to give something back that I knew wasn’t mine.
But that’s just me.
