Today's the day
It was supposed to have been repaved yesterday, but it seems as though, for some odd reason, they couldn't get it done so it's happening today. I realized this around 0710, by which time they had already prepped by spraying liquid tar up and down Cumberland Road. I sent a text to the store telling them I'd be late, and also one to the scheduler so she could find lunch coverage for my one associate... and she gave me a ration of shit and said I should have planned for this. I replied by saying it was planned for yesterday and that she just needs to "deal with it." No response, but then I didn't expect one. She doesn't like to be told what to do. She thinks she's special. She isn't. Anyway, I should be able to drive on it in about 2 - 3 hours and will head over to the store then.
Today's the day New York also holds its primary election and both Clinton and Trump are expected to win. And, of course, the GOP doesn't understand that as a party it's going to need to pull its head out of its ass and deal with reality for once. Trump has pretty much predicted riots in Cleveland if he doesn't get the nomination and the Republicans just don't understand how bad that's going to make them look as a party. They never learned the important lesson of the Gore / Bush election. They went strictly by the rules back then, overriding the popular vote in favor of the Electoral College in order to get one of their own in the White House. And, of course, they gave us the 2nd worst president in the history of the United States. But then they never will learn, will they?
