Dummies


Bookmark and Share

This past weekend I went out with a friend, a male friend, and a small group of his co-workers. I met them at a hot, new, trendy bar that is frequented by a younger, (IMO) unsophisticated crowd. We sat on their rooftop lounge and indulged in "bottle service" drinking vodka poured by scantily clad waitresses who flirted with the multiple men whose company I shared.



My friend, we shall call him Manuel for the purpose of this blog entry, took a liking to the hot blond with giant fake boobs sitting at our table. She was from the south side of Chicago, likely a city-worker's daughter, lived at home with her parents and did not have a job. Manuel was smitten, he looked into his blond lovely's eyes longingly and did his best not to drool on himself.

As Manuel moved in closer to his buxom babe, he busted out the ace-in-the-hole, his business card. He works in finance and his title is "President" not too difficult for even the dumbest of dummies to figure out that you're "kind of a big deal" if your title is "President". Manuel's company is a limited liability corporation, this information will be useful to you when reading the next paragraph.



I sat opposite Manuel as his conversation continued. I couldn't quite make out what they were talking about until I heard the shriek that made my night, my whole weekend perhaps. Moments after Manuel handed his business card to Tits Magee, she looked at the card, absorbed the type and then exclaimed with the greatest furor "Oh my god! You have an LLC? I LOVE LLC's".

No one else heard this explicit display of intelligence but me and Manuel. I then listened while he explained to her that it stood for Limited Liability Corporation. I turned to Manuel's friend and notified him that we were in the presence of intellectual greatness - then we laughed and laughed. All in all, it turned out to be a pretty good weekend and now I am left with yet another awesome story to share.

What a snooty bitch you are!
If that is a picture of the waitress, I hope she hires a lawyer and files suit against you for you using her picture to slander her.

With that pot gutted no bra wearing gal in the grey dress in your post of "the girls" among your in-crowd, I would have thought you'd be a little less harsh on dummies since she is obviously not smart enough to look in the mirror before going out in public with you and your cronies.

Thank you! Actually, the girl in the grey dress is 41 with an 11 year old daughter. The odd looking "pooch" that you see is more a shadow or the lighting that the pic was taken in.

As far as ME being a snooty bitch. You called it.

Leyla, it does seem a little catty. Yes, I find it amusing also, but we shouldn't revel in the stupidity of others, let's have a little compassion. :)

Did your friend Manuel get laid?

leyla a. said...

how could you NOT revel in the stupidity of others? Especially when they're THAT stupid?

Manuel did not get laid that night but he sure did this weekend. I'll have to blog about that!

Shawn said...

Yes, well, there's the me I think I should be, and then there's the me that delights in watching cheap little tramps wallow in their own stupidity. Oh, did I say that?

What *did* she think an LLC was anyway?

leyla a. said...

I can only guess, but I think she likely knows someone else who has a business that is an LLC. My assumption is that she thought the two businesses are the same or similar.

I wish you could have heard the scream of joy when she shrieked I LOVE LLC's!!!

Let's not tell her about S-Corps, I'm afraid of what might happen.

Well, If you have ever thought about writing some script to automate those things that you do several times each day, then you have a great and easy way to automate the entir e process. It comes without saying that a few imacros and firefox add-ons will automate all actions related to a browser (Mozilla). If you wish to automate your system as such, then you'll need some other script, simple commands will automate your system. Even a beginner can automate things using a simple software called as sikuli all you need to do is to inform Sikuli what to do by giving some screenshots and straightforward commands.
A GUI will be used with Sikuli. Sikuli is an open siurce scripting application that will use a mixture of straightforward commands like click, type, wait and so on. There's no internal API support, it simply searches the screen for the image within the screenshot-which implies that you'll be able to use it for anything. There's literally no limit on how you utilize it to automate things.
This is too good to be true, but if you watch the following video, you'll come to know that this is very easy. If you visit their home page, you get a lot of tutorials and support; it will be a cake walk even for beginners.
