    Along with "getting shots into arms". It makes me wish the vaccines had to be given in the ass. But it's what you expect from the media; once a phrase gets hot nobody can say anything else. "Boots on the ground" is another one. The late night comedy shows are good at poking fun at one newscaster after another using the same stale phrase.

    That's a PFizer Riser. And if I take it, it's a Riser Riser.

    I was all prepared to come in here and bitch about the emissions check station... but I drove the truck up, no line... they hooked into the OBD-II port with a reader, left it on there for about 30 seconds, unplugged it, and said, "Please drive forward to pay the clerk and get your report."

    FUCKING SCORE!

    The rumble strip situation on this road annoys me. They start well inside the lines.

    Nurse at work pops a purple pill. One of the other nurses asks him, "What's that? Viagra?" "Naw, Viagra is blue." Oops.

    Haven't been to Chuck E Cheese in a while, and with kids getting older will likely never go again, but it still annoys me that they quit serving beer.
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

    Wait, what? Getting multiple pitchers of beer is what made kids bday parties there halfway tolerable!

    I think we did one, maybe two birthday parties at CEC. What a mad house. At first I worried that in the chaos someone would steal a kid. Then I worried that they wouldn't.

    Too many fistfights at Chuckies leads to no more beer for angry bored dads.

    The cigarettes butts. They are only half smoked so a bum will probably pick them up.

    I was going to make the same joke. Salvewhatever is pretty new here, probably doesn't have his official TGR sarcasm meter yet. Maybe it's held up in some container ship anchored outside LA Harbor.

    My in-laws annoy me, today more than usual...

    I get a panicked call from Ms Boissal around 9 AM, her parents are out jeeping in SoUt and have just activated their SPOT beacon with the "shit's hitting the fan send help ASAP" message. Not once mind you, the SOS went out 8 times.
    They're experienced desert roamers, have been to every nook and cranny of the state, know how to handle themselves 4-wheeling, and have dealt with shitty situations in the past without outside help. They're no spring chickens though and there are reasons to think this is one could be serious: the GPS says they're on the well established Kolob Terrace road within sight of a bunch of houses and at least 1 opened business and there's no way they'd activate the SPOT unless they got in a bad accident or one of them had a random heart attack. Ms B had already been in touch with SAR and given them coordinates along with a a full med history of her parents. In the middle of her freak out I gathered that she was ready to drive down there (Kolob area) or talk to Life Flight at the hospital to see if they can assist. She's also talking about our upcoming trip to France and whether she can even go if one of her parents is in the hospital, the works.. I talk her off the ledge, pointing out that driving 5 hours wouldn't help much with SAR on their way and all she could do was wait. She agrees not to drive down until she actually knows what's going on.

    About an hour ago, after running out of tears and fingernails to gnaw on, she finally gets a call. From her dad. Who has walked 10 minutes down the road to a spot where it turns out he has reception. And who proceeds to rant for 10 straight minutes straight that the Jeep has died and he's going to need to get it towed, and it's probably dead for good, and he's not going to be able to replace it cause it would cost money and he doesn't like spending money, and here we are getting rid of our 4-year old truck when he doesn't have an off-road vehicle anymore, and the world is so unfair and woe is him... Apparently she let him go on for a bit then blew up at him, asking if he really thought the best way to deal with a disabled vehicle on a reasonably popular road, within sight of multiple cabins and within walking distance of at least 50 more and a few opened businesses, with food and water for days, was to alert half of the rescue personnel of the county and terrify their progeny. He didn't like that and hung up on her. I fucking hope he gets charged the cost of dispatching a team out there to make sure he doesn't have to walk 100 yards to a place where he had reception to call a tow truck.

    Activating your SPOT beacon because you broke down on Kolob Terrace Road is pretty incredible.

    Yeah they really outdid themselves on this one and they're being very defiant about it. Apparently that's what SAR should be spending them time on, at least when their ass is involved. They grumble a whole lot when SAR is blocking trailheads to stage a rescue operation on Oly or in Millcreek and it gets in the way of their dog-walking plans though so they're not above a hefty dose of hypocrisy...

    Not wanting to blame anyone (though perhaps Boissal wishes I would) I'm kind of startled by this story. (Again, perhaps I shouldn't be...)

    But if this is even a tiny percentage of alerts that SAR gets, I can totally see why SPOT gets short-shrift, and why In-Reach, where there's some additional info about the situation, would be FAR superior, and thus get much a better response.
    My wife and I both said, spontaneously, and nearly in unison - "I'd have a hard time pushing the 'I'm dying' button even if I were bloody well dying!"
