Boy this guy really gives the term “money talks and bullshit walks” a new meaning…
I’m currently on a metro train headed towards Navy Yard-Ballpark. The Nats have a 1:35p game against the San Diego Padres. It’s the last game of the already lost series. There are lots of people dressed in Nats gear and kids are bopping around with excitement. I should be headed there…but I’m not. I’m hopping off this train 6 stops before Navy Yard-Ballpark for Day 3 of Awesome Con!
I had a choice: go to the game or finish my 3-Day pass…absorbing myself in all things pop culture, gaming, fantasy, sci-fi, science, comics, etc.
I chose the latter…concluding I’d get more out of the experience. Plus the boyfriend is there so I’ve got that going for me.
The Nats are having a rough time and the fans are feeling it. Facebook group conversations are more negative. Cursing the Lerners, the bullpen, and Davey Martinez. Shit maybe even the Universe itself.
I love my team (Go Nats!) but no one walks into disappointment, knowingly.
Happy Sunday Folks!
My issues with FedEx date back to when I first moved to DC so I don’t know why I expected anything different.
They delivered my season plan holder package today.
Yep…the one that I specifically asked to be held for PICK UP. That one. You’re probably thinking, what’s the big deal?! Am I right?
Well you see I didn’t receive a call on the callbox outside my building in order to buzz them inside. In the past, that meant the driver left my package outside…exposed to the elements and susceptible theft. Did I mention that I live in DC?
I jumped into a group text with my neighbors hoping someone was home to grab the package before the package thieves got to it or at least confirm that it was in fact safe.
Someone was home and ran downstairs to find that FedEx had actually left the package just inside the front door and even brought it upstairs to my door. Guys my neighbors really are THE best!
Whew. Crisis averted.
FedEx is still on my list though. BECAUSE. THEY. DON’T. FOLLOW. INSTRUCTIONS!
Also: The Nationals held auditions today to sing the National Anthem. If you or someone you know has what it takes…the final demo submission deadline is May 15th!
It was supposed to be delivered this past Friday. It wasn’t. So I asked that it be held for pick up on Saturday, thinking it’d be easier to just pick it up. I arrived at the FedEx facility in NE to find that they were experiencing a power outage with no idea when the issue would be resolved. Wait…
It’s Sunday now and of course…they are closed. I’ve been avoiding Facebook group posts from others that have received their packages but I’m feeling pretty confident it’ll happen tomorrow. *fingers crossed*
The 2018 World Series is officially here and I’d like to go on record now:
The Los Angeles Dodgers – Game 7.
Don’t debate me.
