Rants R Us: Say Hello you asshat!
In our latest rant episode, Alan, Ben and Jerry start off debating whether or not the lyrics to George Michael’s, “Last Christmas,” make any sense whatsover. This leads into a discussion over many of the lyrics in Adele’s hits.
Alan tells an old Navy joke about a night in a barrel.
Jerry doesn’t like people who fail to plan and drop things on him at the last second with no preparation.
Ben gets pissed about terrible drivers and how self-important asshats feel they don’t have to heed warning signs.
They touch on shock jocks and the purpose of outrageous humor in pointing out social ills and general stupidity. This causes Ben to evoke Ricky Gervais and how he manages to get away with not being PC.
Next they move onto why many people in large cities cannot seem to say, “Hello” and are looking down or are generally unpleasant. This leads to Alan recounting a story of holding a door open for a woman who chastised him for it.
Jerry, Ben and Alan then discuss pet names or names of endearment and how those terms are now triggering to many today.
Then they move onto a discussion about road repair and why is there always one person doing any work while 5 or 6 stand around and watch? Alan recounts the story of the collapse of a section of I-85 in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia. The word was it would be at least 11 months to fix, but suddenly with the cutting of red-tape and some incentives to the private sector, it was rebuilt in 4 months.
After that, Alan moved to his next rant where his radio station bought decaf coffee for the team.
All 3 then admonish litterbugs, while finish off debating baths Vs showers.
