The Money-Grubbing Asshat from Berkeley

I do email first thing, and then last thing.

And this morning, my first goddamn email was a notice from the Berkeley Humane Society telling me that August is National Make-A-Will Month, and offering me their Personal Estate Planning Kit so I could leave them all my money when I die.

This is pure spam — nothing I requested, nothing I signed up for. And Berkeley is hell and gone from Ohio, which is where my interests lie. (Well, Ohio, Georgia, and North Carolina, because I have kids.)

Whatever happened to “Think Globally, Act Locally?”

I guess if your job is “Professional Beggar,” you get to pretend everybody is your neighbor. Eh, Jeffrey?

    Read about the origin of the hair up your ass idiom (which I googled because I wanted to know.) Found you. Read more. I like how you write.

    Oh, that’s not the half of it…

    And the rest are mostly exports from China, where breeding for the rescue trade has become a cottage industry.

      Yeah… There’s stuff in the world that does not need to be as stupid and aggressive and full of shit as it is.

      Becoming very, very wary of anyone who wants you to donate money to ANY cause has become — out of necessity — my first line in the sand.
