The newly-hired Chief of my city's Fire Department, who has been on the job for less than a year, is on administrative leave.

Speeding and drunk driving.

Our county's treasurer is under investigation by the state police for 'accounting irregularities'. Among the tidbits...

1. putting county money into a tax foreclosed home and then 'donating' it to a 'charity' run by one of the commissioner's mother.
2. selling parcels to her church for a buck that were valued at much higher.
3. having someone in her office pay for contractor's supplies using the county credit card of a retired (and now deceased) former employee (and forging his signature).
4. paying for contractors supplies with county funds so the contractors would avoid paying state sales tax.

...and on and on.

Yeah...treasurer....you know the trustworthy one that handles all the bucks? Geebsus Krist.

:facepalm:

Reading a post linked to an article with a wildly misleading headline and most of the comments made it clear almost none of them read the actual story. People are stupid and social media is exacerbating it.

The two
city officials in this thread have "ENTITLEMENT" Written all over their faces.  All you have to do is actually READ Social sites to be overcome with the NEED to PALM SMACK these days....On Colbert last night, there was a story of a Policeman tasked with giving a Sobriety class, and he was DRUNK. Wow....I Try to give folks the benefit of the doubt, but they come right back and hit me in the FACE with it.

I saw Snatched today.

Yeah, Goldie Hawn’s first movie in a decade and a half.  Just one of many recent lame comedies I’ve seen.  From Private Benjamin, House Sitter and Foul Play to this!?

I went to YouTube to check out the new teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode IX.  The comments below are filled with people saying that they won't be watching, that they aren't interested, that they quit the Saga long ago, etc.

Yet those people are still right there, watching ..... :facepalm: :facepalm:

What's so wrong with that? He was probably rushing to put out a fire and was drinking beer to put the fire out with a la Bob Mackenzie in Strange Brew.

Planning to road trip for Easter next weekend - looking like rain up and down the East Coast. Don't want to deal with it. Thinking about maybe staying home.

I am giving myself a large  :facepalm:  for trying to partake in the YouTube comments sections.

What a mess.  It's 95% children, trolls and other assorted illiterate and dysfunctional people.
Shame on me for trying to have real conversations there.  :facepalm:
