If you think being an adjunct is a stinky job, check out this blog, New York Hack. Today the driver shares the story of Billy, the randomly urinating driver. Ewwww.
And on a lighter note, as Katie says to Matt on The Today Show, here's a snatch of something I overheard at Starbucks a few hours ago:
Chubby Man, around 40, in business suit, turns to Balding/Bearded Man behind him in line and says: "Have you heard this Barbra Streisand CD? [He holds up the CD from the rack on the counter.] It's fantastic. She's singing with one of the brothers Gibb. If you want it, I'd buy it for you just so you can hear it."
Balding/Bearded Man: "I've never heard it."
Chubby Man: "Oh, you have to hear it."
Barista at register: "It really is pretty good."
Chubby Man: "I'm going to buy it for you."
Balding/Bearded: "If you want me to have it, I won't say no."
The purchase is made. Chubby Man hands Streisand/Gibb CD to Balding/Bearded, picks up his coffee order and heads out the door. Balding/Bearded steps up to place his order.
Barista: "Weren't you guys together?"
Balding/Bearded: "No. I've never seen that guy before. Never met him."
Barista: "And he bought you that CD?"
Balding/Bearded: "Yeah, I guess it was just a random act of kindness."
I prefer to think of it as a random act of Streisandness.
