Went to Buzz Beach Ball tonight, which was great. Had lots of fun dancing, watching the mosh pit and singing along with Cake. The not fun part? My shirt is dead due to some douche who couldn’t keep track of his cigarette. At least I (and my pretty cami underneath) didn’t get burned.

Customer Service PSA

Standard
When you have called customer service and talked through everything
and it’s the end of the call, I have a request for you.

When the CSR asks if there is anything else they can help you with, do
NOT answer “the winning lottery numbers.”

It wasn’t clever the first time someone said it and it’s not clever now.
