a muni bus driver recently was caught on tape advising that he was going to “break the face” of a passenger who had called him out on being rude to a elderly chinese rider. more here [muni harshness].
after going through that, sink your teeth into these links on the worst day of the work week – tuesday:
live surveillance camera screensavers, up to 653 nodes [i.document]
barack obama is way richer than most democrats [typepad]
seriously offensive home depot parking lot scam – beware! 
cats poop in a box and never need a bath [faildogs]
one more day till hump day!
its been years since i rode the bus, but most of my county transit experience back in the day was mostly unremarkable, which is probably a good thing. seems like some muni drivers are the repeated targets of complaints, but muni management doesn’t do much to get rid of them.
“Hey, she’s just an old Chinese lady. You didn’t have to be rude to her,” says a passenger.
“All I said was did you read the front of the bus?,” says Andrews.
“Well obviously she didn’t,” says a passenger.
“Shut the f*ck up you clown,” says Andrews.
The argument gets heated.
“What are you gonna do about it?,” says Andrews.
You gonna come out here?” says a passenger.
“you don’t wanna f*ck with me.” says Andrews.
Then, as Andrews drives off, he threatens the man over the bus’ loudspeaker system.
“I’ll break your f*cking face,” says Andrews.

i usually watch channel 2 news at night, but the remotes were across the room and the cost/benefit ratio wasn’t enough to get me out of the chair, so i stuck with channel 7 news. during the segment, i saw a commercial for a volvo c70 convertible:
man, that’s a good looking car. i then took a step back and had a moment of self-reflection – am i getting older now that a volvo looks pretty good to me? i will say that volvo’s have been softening up for years, considering they also fathered the 240dl some years ago:
but still, it’s kind of a paradigm shift for me. that volvo c70 above is no bmw z4, but at this point in my life i could use a back seat to hold the two car seats and have a teenager stashed in the middle. i also drive slower now and would lose my valuable civic hybrid carpool sticker status! (sorry wifey). check out the roof-folding mechanism below – gotta make sure you get the service contract on that sucka:
even if i was trying to get back at my wife for making some fantasy humor video with her banging brad pitt or something, i WOULD NOT be in a video with some other man where there was this much male touching going on. i have to give credit to jimmy kimmel for taking that risk in this video:
it’s meant as a comeback to this original sarah silverman video. man, she’s ugly but she is pretty funny.
just testing out the mobile phone posting capability of the blackberry curve – i think i’ve sorted out the technical details. pictured above are some scissors the wifey left behind on the kitchen counter within marc’s reach after cutting her bag of chips open. i just needed a total random picture to test the posting capability with, and this just happened to come up in the phone. totally random.
i wouldn’t even consider getting a published wedding announcement if i had a last name like the ones below:
and my personal favorite:
greetings to both of my readers. today marks a milestone in the long and storied history of this website. this is the 300th article to be posted, hopefully one of many that have made you laugh, cry, vow revenge, hurt someone, etc., over the past year or so.
actually, the posting has been light the last week or two because our home dsl is out. it’s set to be restored this week or early next week, at the latest. it’s hard posting over a sprint wireless connection which mimics my first non-modem internet connection ever, a 128k dual-channel isdn connection.
to commemorate our 300th post, state senator jackie speier has slipped the unofficial doylez.com hand salute at one of her recent political events.
at least its spelled right.
