The Sucker Canadjin

Gah! Gah! Gah!

It's true, I can still blog from the Holiday Inn in Minneapolis, but unless it's 2am (like it is now) it's a bit difficult.

All I can say is that I just spent $60 trying to get somebody home. I tried and I tried and I tried. We were in a taxi cab going NOWHERE, and when I realized that we were LITERALLY going nowhere I tried to turn us back to Minneapolis...but regardless, a $60 bill (that I paid) just to drive somebody AWAY (so they could pee on an off-ramp) and then back to my hotel (where they treated me like shite for abandoning them) was a bit of a shock. So sad!

It's a basic fact that people get burned for charity. We pay for all those times we pass by homeless people on the street. But my goodness I am frustrated that I just paid for somebody who is too drunk to ever know how much trouble I've gone through...

Is that the wrong attitude? Probably.

Have you ever heard: "No good deed goes unpunished"?

I love it! I hadn't heard that before, but I certainly get the drift.
