Thick tattooed lady (Caldwell blvd mcDonalds)

***Okay, right outta’ the gate. “Thick tattooed lady” whoever you are.
Along with stalking you on Craigslist he just called you fat.
My advice? Run, walk or roll as far away from this guy and McDonalds apparently as fast as you can!***

You were at McDonalds today when i complimented your ink .Unsure if you heard me but i said i had a chucky tattoo as well but u had your hands full with your kids (they called you mommy so i assume they were your kids) i cant stop thinking about how beautiful you are.

You walked with so much confidence i could tell you are successful in life. You carry yourself very well and very precise i would love to get to no u. and take you out. if you see this reply with the names you have tattooed on your face an. the color of bandana shoes taht you were wearing. I hope you see this

***Hhhhmmm. I wonder what about this thick fat ass tattooed woman screeeaaammmed success.
Let’s see… Was it…

A – The fact that she was eating at McDonalds
B – The way she carried herself with such confidence and precision
OR
CCCCCCCCCCCC – The tattoos ON HER FACE and the BANDANA SHOES  that she was wearing????***

What the actual fuck????? Seriously????
THIS, thissssss is your measuring stick for success???

There’s an old saying, “There’s a lid for every pot.”
With the Craigslist “Missed Connection” section there should be a straight jacket for every nut job.

ALSO – The typos in the Craigslist “I’m stalking you” post are aaallll on them.

LADIES IN JEEP WRANGLER IN HULLS GULCH
To the two ladies who graciously gave my dog and I a lift back to my truck on Friday, thank you!

Turns out, I broke my ankle on the trail so not having to walk that last ~mile out was greatly appreciated. Thank you again!

If you happen to know two ladies who gave someone a ride in the area on Friday morning, please pass along my thanks!

***Yeah… Ted Bundy has a similar story…Turns out he broke his arm…

If you happen to know these two ladies DO NOT pass along Ted Jr’s “thanks!”
Are you fucking kidding me right now???
THIS is Hulls Gulch!

I’m not picking up a quarter if I drop it let alone some guy I don’t know with a dog that may or may not be his or that may or may not be trained to rip my leg off!
People are so fucking stupid…

Happy Monday folks!
I’m a little late to the game today. Lots going on. I do have to say, it was fantastic seeing Halloween decorations up in every store I went into today. Seriously. It’s been so hot here ANYTHING that brings thoughts of cooler weather is okay by me!
Tomorrow is another early day for me, in fact, this whole week is going to be early days for me. We don’t have a definitive date for my sister’s surgery so I’m trying to get my schedule in sync and reschedule what I can plus get all of my personal appts., dr. appts., etc. out of the way. I am not looking forward to an MRI. Any of those kinds of tests always freak me out, plus I flatlined in one of them before so yeah, no fun for me at all…

I hope that all of you have had a wonderful start to your week. Don’t work too hard if that’s your gig and if you’re playing, don’t overdo it. That heat is killer out there and apparently, it’s the same all over the globe!

Be well and be safe.

LADIES AT OLIVE GARDEN SATURDAY NIGHT (Boise)
You were a brunette with a couple other ladies at your table. You were in a black top and blue shorts and wedge heels. DROP DEAD GORGEOUS. I winked at you as you left and you looked at me. In the parking lot I winked again and you smiled as I rode away. Love it if you were able to contact me…
***Seriously, twitchy? You’re never gonna’ see this chick again. She probably thought you were on the verge of some kind of seizure! It’s 2018. You wanna’ wink at women and think they’ll swoon I suggest you get back in your time machine and take a trip back to the 50’s where that might have got you laid but I doubt it.

WE MET AT THE ARCADE (Meridian)
You was in booth next to me on Tuesday around noon. It was a great time. You were very big. I should of got you contact info. I know you enjoyed it to.
***Not a clue about this one. “You were very big.” What the hell? Were they doin’ the nasty at an arcade filled with kids?? FREAKS.

SPECTRUM HOTEL VISITOR.. WAS THAT YOU? (Boise)
Thought I saw you getting into the elevator at the hotel. Staying there this week and would like to get the guys together…. let me know…

Happy Monday! Stay cool!

GUY WITH A BEARD IN A FORD TRUCK (Fairview & Winco)
I was driving a grey Toyota Corrola on Fairview near Winco on 4/11. Blonde hair clipped back, window down, and wearing a dark colored blouse. We were both checking each other out. You were behind me and then pulled up next to me. Once you got to Winco you turned into the parking lot and waved bye. I regret turning around. If you recall the encounter contact me.
***Dear Princess Obvious, are you new?? You just described every fucking guy in Idaho! This connection is never going to happen and not just because of that oh, so detailed description you gave of your hopeful love connection but also because Winco is NOT a crossroad at Fairview. Winco is a grocery store, dumb ass.
CHEVRON ON HAPPY VALLEY, EMPLOYEE WITH TATOOS
When I see you, I imagine what would happen if I knew how to ask you out, or even just flirt a little, but I don’t. When i see that your working I feel a brief moment of joy, followed by panic; and as I leave I feel disappointed in myself.

I wish I wasn’t afraid, not of the possible (probable?) rejection, or even the embarrassment and humiliation that would follow; I am afraid of success. I don’t want to hurt you, the way I seem to hurt the people I care about the most. I never intend for it to happen but it always does.

When someone first gets to know me, they are either pulled in by curiosity, or repelled by something else; maybe its the aspergers, or co-morbidity with any number of countless diagnoses. Either way, it’s rare and strange for me to feel feelings, but for some reason, I feel them for you.

***You’re afraid of success??? Are you fucking kidding me?? You’re “afraid” that this tattooed employee is actually going to go out with you???
Fear no more my friend. Shuffle that into the “SHIT THAT’S NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN TO ME” category of life.

“Countless diagnoses, co-morbidity, no feelings…” You’re a fucking psychopath. That would be what repels people! And the only people being “pulled in” are the ones you’ve bound and gagged in the trunk of your car.
To the tattoed employee. Find another job. In another state…
Trying to get back into the blogging groove. The medical hurry up and wait game is more than a little frustrating. Waiting for tests to be scheduled and phone calls to be made. Hopefully, we’ll get some things done this week.

Hey, how ’bout good ‘ol Mother Nature??? Not entirely sure who pissed her off but I’m happy that I’m not in the middle of it. We had some unseasonable snow but we’re done with that now – maybe. Yesterday we had temps in the 70’s and the forecast is for 50’s, 60’s and rain all week. I’ll take but ya’ know the way the weather is all across the board, north, south, east and west. I’m open for anything!
What’s been happening with all of you? Did anybody do anything fun this weekend? I vegged. Totally binged on ‘Dr. Foster’ on Netflix. Another great show. Makes me wonder if the same people who made ‘The Killing’ made this show. I started watching ‘Wallander’ and I also started another crochet project. Totally new to me and hopefully I’ll be done with it within the next couple of days so I can post pics.

Let me know what’s happening in your little pod of existence because as always, I’m a nosey bitch.

Hi there! This was last Wednesday and you were with your dad I think. I thought you were very pretty and wanted to chat you up… but you were with your dad… mildly awkward. Anyways… you might have had a concussion and i wanted to see if you were on enough to go to dinner. Here’s hoping!!
***Okay, I’m not entirely sure how desperate a person needs to be but “you might have had a concussion” followed up by “I wanted to see if you were on ENOUGH to go to dinner.”

Really?? Sorry about your head injury but hey, how ’bout dinner anyway.

I suggest “Pink Snowboard Pants” zip down that mountain and never look back. If this guy is willing to take you with a concussion. I’m pretty sure he’d take you unconscious.
They make creepy crime shows about this guy. Just sayin’.

Now that your fucking my best friend and apparently have been for some time, I can safely say you won’t be hearing from me again. You are exactly what I thought you were.

***Not entirely sure how this is a “missed connection” but it certainly seems personal.

I wonder who the retarded drummer is.

Eh well. Looks like all of you are better off without each other or one or the other or..
Just stop leaving these notes. She won’t see them.
She’s too busy bangin’ your best friend.

If you were buying big pillows Sunday at Walmart on Overland and Cole.. Wearing shorts.. And You put them in the trunk of a white car.. Please email me. You may not think you are but I think you’re incredibly sexy.
***First of all presumptive asshole. Maybe she not only thinks but knows she’s incredibly sexy.
And second, this is it? This is what YOU find sexy? A woman putting pillows in the trunk of her vehicle?? Holy shit there are women across the world getting their sexy on every day! You should see me load the dishwasher.  And the way I mop a floor? Oh baby. You’d need some serious cash to stick those dollar bills in my sweatpants! – Freak.
bar dotsEAGLE RD., GRAY SUV – M4W
Your license plate is from “N” county. Your absolutely gorgeous. You wave at me all the time and have a great smile. I’m intrigued about you. Tell me what I ride so I know it’s you.

You and “your brother” we’re hitchhiking one night.. I’m still not single, but would have taken advantage of you given the chance. You were both pretty wasted it seemed like. But I took you to your car after we dropped him off. You were parked at a bar on Vista. If you see this let me know what color your hair was. I think you were driving a grey car.
***Translated this means, “I didn’t have the balls to kill you the first time around. C’mon, if you see this, gimme’ a second chance to show you the real psycho that I am.” – Dumb, dumb, girl.. I hope she does NOT see this and if she does that she’s smart enough not to answer this sociopath.

I’ve been in a few times and we’ve talked. I can’t get you off of my mind. You are a very sweet and kind person. You have the most beautiful eyes and I would like to spend more time talking to you. I know you will never see this, but if you do message me your name and where you are going to work.
***Not to burst any bubbles or anything but that’s her job jackass. She talks to people, usually saying things like, “Would you like fries with that.” Seriously. That’s not a pick-up line.

bar dotsbar dotsNo “missed connections” here today. and apparently no going outside either.
Holy shit. We just get over the triple digit heat to where we feel like we can venture outside without collapsing of heat stroke and then some jackass has to start a fire at the recycling plant over by the airport! Which, SURPRISE, is RIGHT BY US!
We sleep with our windows open and we all woke up in the middle of the night with headaches. At first we thought our building was on fire! Talk about being scared shitless.

The carpet cleaners are coming at some point this morning, we’re happy to get the carpets cleaned but not happy about the fact that they have to leave the door wide open with that hideous smoke permeating the valley.
On the plus side, our temps will be dropping into the 70’s soon and maybe if we don’t have anymore, eye burning, choking, fucking fires, we’ll actually be able to get out and enjoy it!

What’s on tap for you folks today? Anything thrilling and spine chilling to report??
I can’t believe we only have two days left until September! Wth??bar dotsMimi’s quote for the day –

“MISSED CONNECTION MONDAY” – This is why I don’t date

No need to look in the “Craigslist’s serial killer hunting ground” for today’s “missed connection” because this “missed connection” actually involved me!
And this is why I don’t date.
I went to ‘Home Depot’ to get some wooden dowels for my windows/sliding glass door because we now have some questionable, non-English speaking men living upstairs who have not undergone a background check per “move in regulations.”
I mentioned this in yesterday’s post.
As with most moments in my life, I’m in a hurry. I walk into ‘Home Depot’ with my list and measurements in hand. I stop and ask a cashier where the dowels are and tell her I’ll need someone to cut them for me. She says, “Oh, we have a saw station at the end of the aisle.”
I say, “Oh, well, I’ll need someone to do that for me. I’m in a bit of a hurry.”
She says she’ll send someone over to help me. Perfect.
Off I go.

– Keep in mind, I’m in a hurry.
I told the cashier I was IN A HURRY. –
I’m in the aisle. I spot my “helper.” I immediately start rattling off what I need and my helper just stands there looking at me. I talk fast so I’m thinking, a.) He didn’t understand me or b.) He was too far away to hear what I said. I repeat myself. Again he stands there looking at me. And just when I’m about to be a smart ass and say, “Hello, McFly” my helper starts moving his hands and motioning to his ears and mouth.
MY HELPER IS A DEAF MUTE!
Did I mention I was in a hurry?????
Fuck! – I show my list to him pointing to the length and the width I need, he, in turn, points to the dowels and the “saw station” – FYI, the “saw station” is a hand saw and some rulers.
Are you fucking kidding me right now???
I grab my dowels and head to the front of the store nearly running into another worker.
Thus begins my very own personal “missed connection.”
ME – (Shoving the dowels into the other worker’s face.) “Can you hear and do you speak?”
MC/missed connection (He chuckles.) “Well, yes I can and yes I do. What can I help you with?”
ME – (Holding the dowels inches from his face) “I need these cut. I’m in a hurry. Can you cut these for me?”
MC – “I can do that. What sizes do you need?” (I hand him my list.)

At the saw station he asks me what I’m using the dowels for. I tell him and we end up discussing  the crime rate in Boise and he tells me he’s a retired L.A. Detective.
He then proceeds to give me a million and one safety tips and questions the measurements for my dowels.
MC – “You know you want to make sure you get these long enough so that a person couldn’t stick his arm through the window and dislodge the dowel.”
ME – (Pointing at myself from head to toe.) “Detroit girl. I got it. And trust me, long before they got their arm through my window they’d be a dead man.”
He smiles. It’s a nice smile. He’s a handsome guy.
So, handsome MC with the nice smile finishes cutting the dowels and hands them to me and then, BOOM.
MC – “May I ask for you phone number?”
ME – (Taking note of his manners.) “You may ask but the answer is no.”
He stares at me. He has crystal blue eyes.
MC – “Why not?”
ME – “Well, Mr. Bold, did you miss the part about me being the Detroit girl?”
MC – (Smiling.) “Did you miss the part about me being the retired Detective from L.A.?”
ME – “Prove it. Where are your credentials?”
He stares at me again.
MC – “Where are yours?” (He smiles)
ME – “Seriously? Have you met anyone here in Idaho as mouthy as me, with an attitude like mine and a voice that sounds like “The Nanny,” who asked to see your credentials AND wouldn’t give you their phone number?” (He laughs out loud this time. He has a nice laugh too…)
MC – “Well, if you change your mind I’m here every day.” (Another smile.)
ME – (Dripping with sarcasm.) “Perfect. I’ll be back tomorrow.” And off I go to pay for my shit.
I go to the same cashier who sent my flippin’ “helper.” She says, “How did everything work out for you?” I said, “It didn’t. I tell you I’m in a hurry and you send me some guy that can’t hear and doesn’t speak.” She says, “Oh, that’s Carl. He reads lips.” I said, “Well apparently not these lips because he did nothing for me.” Then I hear laughing, that laugh. My very own personal “missed connection” laugh. I look up and my MC is standing up at the customer service desk listening to my every word, pointing at himself mouthing the words, “every day, I’m here, every day.”
I smiled at him, walked out the door and haven’t been back since.
And that, folks is my very own personal “Missed Connection Monday” post.
Here’s to a great week ahead filled with great smiles, beautiful eyes, and amazing laughter.
