Into My Mind

....................Five items or less......................

This is basically my rip-off of Best Week Ever's "Express lane" segment where they quickly talk about popculture news.

1. Vaughnalicious has accepted my Bennifer 2 bet and I am actually surprised that someone came forward. This will be quite interesting and I cannot wait to see who wins. I really hope that I do! And Bennifer 2 plan to have a secret wedding! Yeah, good luck with that because your friends already sold you out on your engagement and I cannot wait when they start singing like a canary to the tabloids when you two start planning the wedding!!!

2. When it comes to engagement rings, does size really matter?? We all know about the pink ugly rock that Bennifer 1 had along with the baby rock that Bennifer 2 have. Also, I remember the outrageous diamond Carson Daly got Tara Reid. Does the size of the ring really determine how much the man loves the woman??? This makes me wonder if Ben buys big engagement rings to compensate for something that he feels is in adequate to him..... According to Michael Clarke Duncan, Ben is not well endowed..if you knwo what I mean. I will stop right here because I'm about to bring my mind to two places where I don't want to go. One being Ben's manhood and second is why the hell was MCD checking Ben out??? Brrr!!!!

3. As I stepped on the train this morning, the conductor didn't say the name of stops he or she merely breathed very deeply into the PA system.....creepy! Was that supposed to be some sign that I've just stopped onto the express train to Hell???
Either he/she was trying to scare us commuters or seduce us via PA.

4. Gaywatch! No, that is not a new show about gay lifeguards! It is the hilarious segment that is featured on "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart. Basically, it keeps America up to date with all the gay politics going on. Jon clearly states how we pro-gay liberals are feeling towards the country and the world's discriminatory. I love this man!

5. Last night, I entered President Bush's fantasia! Otherwise known as the Texas Roadhouse restaurant! Although I didn't see any mullets there! Thank God! Loud depressing country music blared from the speakers while the floor was covered with hay and peanut shells. The food was ok, Jimmy's is far superior, the prices range from $8.99 to $29.99 and the service was mediocore. I guess being my New Englander self prevented me from fully enjoying the atmosphere. If you're into the whole cowboy theme then you'll enjoy this eatery.

........................Rude People SUCK!!!!!................................

Everyone has their favorite delivery or takeout place. For Chinese food, I dial up "Dragon In". Their portions are pretty generous. So, I eat half the meal and save the rest for the next day. I do this EVERY time I order from there. On Sunday, I ordered my usual, ate half and saved the rest for Monday. I awoke to find out that my food had been eaten. This wouldn't have been a big deal if food wasn't so scarce in my house. My older sister informed me that the man who was hired to redo the bathroom had eaten my food!

This asshole, has never met us before but opened our frigerator, took out the food and ATE it! My sister was shocked and a bit scared that she didn't say anything. He never once asked her if it was all right for him to even go into our frigerator. She called his boss and told him what happened. He actually had the never to be upset at HIS boss and said that he thought the food was his leftovers from yesterday!! What a fucking liar because what I ordered was ENTIRELY different from what he ordered! Then, he actually had the nerve to say to my sister that she shouldn't let me eat since I'm already too big, even though he's big himself! I can't believe that he actually tried to use this as his reasoning for eating food that he didn't pay for and that did not belong to him!

Rude people suck!

...........I love the funny and Christian Finnegan.................

One of my great loves (other than the Sawx, writing, food and the entertainment industry in general) is laughing. Anyone that knows me can confirm that I love laughing and that my chuckle is in no way alluring. It is loud, reckless and has scared away wildlife (ok, it was only a gopher but it still ran off!) As cliche and over used as this may sound laughter is really the greatest medicine and you loose some calories in the process!

I really don't know how to explain my sense of humor. It's a little bit of everything, sarcastic, slapstick, dark, a bit dirty and stupid. So, as many of you may have already assumed, Comedy Central is my heaven on Earth and I honestly don't think that I could live without it! Quite frankly, I only watch a handful of shows on the beloved basic cable channel. My personal favorites are Comedy Central presents, Reno 911!, The Chappelle Show, Crank Yankers, and when I remember to The Daily Show, I love you Colbert! However, that doesn't mean that I solely watch CC to get my daily comedy fix. I also turn to TBS for reruns of Friends and Sex and the City. Unexpectedly, VH1 has turned into a musical version of Comedy Central. I'm pretty sure it began with the entertaining mini-series I Love the 80's. Since then, a handful of shows that have a similar format (with comedians and celebrities giving their commentary on basically everything surrounding celebrities) have been created and repeatedly shown on the network. One of them being Best Week Ever which is a show that reviews major events in American popular culture with a comedic twist. Various panelists drop by and give their perspective but my favorite are the core panelists who are primarily up and coming comedians and a handful of celebrities.

Christina Finnegan happens to be one of the core panelists and he is one my favorites. I will admit, after finding out that he is a fellow New Englander like myself, he was promoted to the comedians I like to those that I truly love. He is smart, hilarious, sarcastic and enjoys playing Trivial Pursuit like myself. I hope to one day to have a friendly face-off with him because I too am more of TP person than Monopoly. Also, I've been known to single handedly beat large teams with all the useless knowledge in my head. Finny (at least that's what I now call him since he sometimes refers to himself as that) also bears a slight resemblance to Mike Mizanin from Real World X: Back to New York. He did play a character named "Chad" in The Chappelle Show skit The Mad Real World. Yes, I will also admit that I find him a bit attractive, pale white men are one my weaknesses and I do love me some Conan O'Brien. I am fully aware that he is taken by the lovely Ms. Kambri Crews who also happens to be his publicist. That reminds of Samantha and Smith from Sex and the City, sans the major age gap. I don't know how some people work with the ones they love but I admire those who manage to, so kudos to Christian and Kambri! Every week I drop by Finny's site to read his blog "Tower of Hubris" and a hearty laugh always leaves my mouth when reading his amusing ramblings. I will end this entry by posting a picture of dear Finny and one of him with Ms. Kambri.

Here's him and Kambri, aren't they cute?

.................Color blind.....................

So, I caught the last ten minutes of The Larry Elder Show and the topic was about interracial dating. There was a couple ( a white woman and a black man) and they spoke about their experiences with racism from society and their parents.

It disappoints me that some people are still living in the 50's when it comes to interracial dating, especially here in America. This country is made of immigrants and that is something that no one can deny. TheNative Americans were the first people to live on American soil, not the white man. So, no one and I mean NO ONE is a pure breed White American. A true American is someone who was born in this country or became a citizen through naturalization, not those who are simply Caucasian. And to those who refuse to believe this, you are incredibly ignorant and I feel sorry for you because you live in the same reality as Ms. Delusional. No sane person would want to be assosciated with her.

Why should anyone limit his/herself to dating their own race? Where is it written that your true love has to share the same color as you? I had a friend (who shall remain nameless) who didn't want to date out of her race because "I want my kids to look like me" That had to be one of the most ignorant and shallowest remarks that I have ever heard. My parents are the same race and I look nothing like them. Besides, bi-racial babies are beautiful! Look at Jessica Alba, Charisma Carpenter, Halle Berry, Michelle Branch, Lori Trespicio (From Real World: Back to New York) and Tyson Beckford.

I don't understand why some people say, "I don't believe in it", they don't have to believe in it, they have to learn to accept it. Eventually, EVERYONE in the world is going to be a mixed race. Last time I checked, bi-racial people are a part of society and society cannot function without people! And if the creator of humankind wanted everyone to be the same color or sexual orientation, then he or she would have done so. Thankfully, he/she didn't and they're probably pissed off that there is such a large group of angry hateful individuals that are constantly working to keep racism, prejudice and intolerance alive. You know what you biggots, YOU are the scum of mankind, not minorities or homosexuals, because you are promoting hate. And it is you who are too blinded by hate to see your own ignorance. For that, I pity you.

Personally, I dislike someone because of his/her personality (i.e. Affleck, Avril Lavigne, Omarosa and Paris) not because of his/her race. And no, I have not been jealous of anyone that I have disliked. When will people realize that we are ALL a part of the same race, the human race.

.................DON'T DO IT JENNIFER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...................

Now Jennifer, I love you like a sister, so I am in no way going to sugar coat this entry.

Seriously, do you actually have a brain in that pretty little head of yours? Have you been hit with the same STUPID stick that Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez have bumps from? You haven't even been dating this jerk for even a YEAR and you honestly think that a marriage can workout between you two? Sweetie, he is USING YOU for PUBLICITY!!! Haven't you noticed that since hooking up with that you he has somehow remained in the press even though he's only released one movie in the past year (much like Demi Moore)? Are you so blind to see that every time you two go out on a date, you're in plain view for the paparazzi to see? Come on, Fenway Park and outdoor cafes are NOT private locations to have dates. Well, only if you know that you'll be photographed and believe me, Ben does and obviously YOU don't! Did you ever notice that Ben only hides his face from the paparazzi when he's around you! When he's alone, he in NO WAY avoids them like you do by running to his Bentley, pulling your hood over your head or hiding behind your designer purse. He is a PUBLICITY WHORE!!!! The worst part is, he tries to deny it. If you TRULY value your privacy, you wouldn't even be with him!

And if you think that the paparazzi are horrible to you now, it will be a LIVING HELL the moment you two get married. Look at Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt, for gawd sakes. What sane woman would want the fleet of paparazzi following them everyday of her life? Supposedly, you do if you actually tie the knot. You've only experienced the TIP of the ice berg by merely dating him. Don't expect to get sympathy when you complain about being chased down because no one made you audition for Alias , no one made you have THREE relationships in LESS than FOUR years and no one told you to get involved with AFFLECK . Since you've dated him for 10 months, you already know the kind of attention he drags along with him. If anyone actually feels sorry for you, then they are as ignorant and naive as you are. Jennifer, you CHOSE your fate, you are NOT a victim of it and you don't deserve to be treated as if you are. No one DOES.

Nothing, and I mean nothing will change him, not even you. No matter how much you nag or sweet talk to him or offer some booty, he will not budge. He dated for Gwenyth for years and he didn't even make an effort to change. After only TEN months of dating, what in your makes you think that YOU could change him? Marriage will not make him falter either and if you think it will, then I'm sorry, but Sweetie, you're a fucking twit. If he doesn't get his career back on track and you flourish,
his ego couldn't handle that. He's only dated women who equally or less famous than he is. Then you're going to be twice divorced in your thirties and you'll be alone. Let's just say, you two have a child. You'll be at home with the baby putting your career on the line while he's out either working, gambling or going to strip clubs. Yeah, he's a winner!

So, Jennifer, I beg of you, please lose the

.................I am NOT Paris Hilton......................

Nor do I aspire to be. Ms. Hilton and I only have one thing in common, our gender. Other than that, she is everything that I am not. She is an artificially tanned bag of bones that is so conceited and narcissistic. Unlike me, she wears many hats, she is an actress, a reality TV whore, jewelry designer, a published author, an amateur pornstar, an aspiring singer and an heiress. And she is in no ashamed about showing off her wealth with the many designer barely there outfits that she wears. My wardrobe consists of Old Navy t-shirts and jeans, I love me some bootcut jeans.

Even though I am not Ms. Hilton (thank God) I was treated as if I were this morning. As I was waiting at the bus station, an elderly man asked me for a quarter to buy a cup of coffee. I shook my head and said, "No, I don't have any change," which I didn't. All I had were dollar bills that I needed for bus fare and train tokens. The elderly man rudely replied "I meant a quarter of million dollars!" He quickly (I still don't know how he got away so fast) walked away while I sat on the bench trying to understand what just happened. I was a victim of a "dis and run".

Perhaps the old man was so senile that he actually thought I was Ms. Hilton. Yeah, because we all know how she is a curvaceous Cambodian girl who is rarely seen without her Red Sox cap and Steve Maddie boots that were purchased from eBay. I guess he must have been blinded by my non-existent diamonds given to me by Neil Lane to realize that I was not the heiress of a famous hotelier. Or, maybe the old man is a card carrying member of the "Bitter Old Men Club"

Why should I respect my elders, if they do not respect me?

.....................The Boss is Bitching.............................

So, as many baseball fans have probably already heard, George Steinbrenner(the Yankees owner) is sooo not pleased with his firm's, (that right, I said firm) losing streak. Here's the statement he released.

"Enough is enough. I am bitterly disappointed as I'm sure all Yankee fans are by the lack of performance by our team.It is unbelievable to me that the highest-paid team in baseball would start the season in such a deep funk. They are not playing like true Yankees. They have the talent to win and they are not winning. I expect Joe Torre, his complete coaching staff and the team to turn this around."

Yeesh, if that isn't pressure, then I don't know what is! It's only twelve games, as Cheri Oteri would say "Simmah down now!" The baseball season is a marathon not a sprint, or as I like to say pre-foreplay. I will admit, he has spent a disgusting amount of money on this firm and they haven't brought home a championship in four years. Maybe, just maybe, he should have renewed his contract. That's right people, "The Boss" has not renewed his contract with the horned God aka Satan. What else can explain they're lack of rings in the new millennium??

This is a team, I mean firm, of All-Stars! Perhaps, George should realize that maybe money can't buy everything. Yes, this firm is very talented but they're also aging and he "The Boss" screwed himself over by signing them to such large and lengthy contracts. Then again, he chose to do so.

Honestly, I'm not that worried because the Yankees always find some way to make it to the playoffs. They managed to do so last year, even with the horrific pitching they had. So, George can bitch all he wants, but everyone knows that the Yanks will be the postseason, along with my dear idiots.

................................Just fill it....................................

As some of already heard, Congress is considering a bill where pharmacists who are against birth control for religious reasons, can refuse to fill a woman's prescription if there is another pharmacist willing to do so in his/hers place. I heard about this from Bill Maher and you can read about it here

I completely agree with Sen. Frank Lautenberg. A pharmacist is not a doctor and it is not their place to decide whether they should be able to fill a woman's birth control prescription. To be frank, what gives a pharmacist the right to pass judgement on a woman's sex life by not filling her prescription? It's not as if he/she prescribed the pills to the woman and it is part of his/her job to fill the prescription despite whether he/she agrees or disagrees with the individual's lifestyle.

Why does it seem like the Constitution is being twisted in this situation? What's going to happen next? Are uber Christian doctors going to refuse to treat homosexual patients because their religion views them as sinners??

This is so ridiculous, why are pharmacists choosing to twist the Constitution around just so they can impose their beliefs on others? You're a pharmacist, not a doctor, you're not going to burn in hell for doing your job! What if a small town only has ONE pharmacy and ALL the pharmacists are against birth control? Then, whether they like it or not they're going to have to fill the prescription and if they don't, then they should be fired. What the hell gives a pharmacist the right to deny a woman birth control? Honestly, we don't need more people on this Earth because we're overpopulated as it is. I'll let Bill Maher finish this entry off.

Pharmacists have to fill prescriptions. As our audience seems to already know, more and more American pharmacists are refusing to fill prescriptions for birth control because of their personal moral objections. Hey, you know what would really teach us a lesson? If you took off your pretend doctor jacket and got another job.

Or maybe I'm wrong. Maybe cutting off the pill doesn't even go far enough. Yeah, it's high time activist drugstores stopped coddling sluts on every aisle. Let's not sell any more makeup either. A good woman doesn't paint herself. And no more deodorant. You should smell bad. Keep the boys from getting ideas. And no suntan lotion. I've seen what happens at the MTV Beach House, you whore. You want to avoid melanoma, buy a veil.

Why is this country becoming Utah?! You know, I know the conservatives are always saying that the coastal elites don't really get it about them because we just fly over. Okay, maybe. But, you know what? You guys don't get us either. We need to fuck. Refusal to provide birth control threatens our economy and our very way of life here in Southern California. There's a lot of hot chicks out here, man. We need birth control! I mean, seriously, how do you think movies get made?

Now, of course, I know the other side is saying, yes, but this is a moral issue. Yeah, but the problem is, not everyone gets their morals from the same book. You go by the book that says slavery is okay but sex is wrong until after marriage, at which point it becomes a blessed sacrament between a husband and the wife who is withholding it.

In conclusion, let me say to all the activist pharmacists out there, the ones who think sex is bad probably because sex with them always is. Fellas, a pharmacist is not a law-giver, not even a doctor. In the medical pecking order, you rank somewhere in between a chiropractor and a tree surgeon.

You don't answer to a law above the laws of men. You work for Sav-On. The doctors are the ones who make medical decisions because they went to medical school, whereas you were transferred from the counter where people drop off film.

.........Boston, please ban "The Affleck".........

Seriously, keep this curse out of Fenway and stop inviting him to the welcome home dinner! Everything is going so well, for the team and for the New England area in general. Why do we need a constant reminder of the one "Bostonian" whose career is almost non-existent??? And why the hell are you letting him film a movie in Boston? "Fever Pitch" is doing well let's not bring down the city with a FLOP film. "Good Will Hunting" was good because Matt Damon was involved. No Damon + 1 Affleck= One major FLOP! Affleck better watch out during filming because he may or may not be a victim of a driveby fruiting involving tomatoes or watermelons....I'm just saying.

I couldn't help but scowl whenever Affleck appeared on screen during the welcome home dinner for my dear Sawx. I think I screamed "Get off the fucking screen Affleck!" I need help, but then again, Ben needs to stop hanging around..he's like the guy that graduated high school but became a townie and drives around the school for awhile. Let's let the air out of his tires, shall we?

Couldn't they have gotten an actual comedian like Denis Leary, Mike O'Malley or Dane Cook to be on stage with Seth Meyers? Honestly....Affleck? I've seen him on SNL and frankly, he fucking sucks. Him and his long AVERAGE looking face! Let's be real people, fame and money make ugly and average people look Paris Hilton or Donald Trump.

Please Boston, I beg of you, keep "The Affleck" out of our beloved city!

...........I heart the Red Sawx...................

Almost two years ago, I experienced my first heartbreak and to say the least, it was devastating. From that day on, I promised myself that I would never, EVER fall in love again. A couple of months later, for some reason that is still unbeknownst to me, I watched the American League Championship Series. As much as I tried not to, I became captivated and obsessed with the Old Towne Team. During the infamous game 3, I stopped living in denial with myself and accepted the truth; I had fallen in love with the Red Sox.

Before discovering and falling for these “idiots”, I wasn’t a fan of sports in general. My parents came to Boston over twenty-four years ago and they were too preoccupied with raising a family to worry about sports. So, unlike many of the citizens of Red Sox Nation, I wasn’t brought up as a Red Sox fan. As I got older, I actually pitied my fellow citizens and believed that they were mentally unstable. Of course, I was young, meaning that I was a complete fool, not an idiot, a fool! However, I am proud to say that I have passed down my love for the Sox to my niece. This wonderful gift will continue to be passed down from generation to generation; I say that with the utmost confidence or more appropriately, FAITH!

I absolutely love my bunch of “idiots”! They are all so talented, free spirited and they're just so entertaining. Their haircuts and facial is not a sign of disrespect towards the game, it's just hair! There's nothing deep about it, my boys just like wearing their hair the way that they want. What's with all the dramatics? Oddly enough, it is mostly men who make such a big deal about hair, chill out guys and stop getting your briefs in a bunch. It's not as if the organization forbids it and the players are purposely going against them. I love how this organization encourages self-expression and they know what baseball is, A GAME!

I was glued to NESN all day and I enjoyed the entire five hours! I thought the ceremonies were wonderful, it was great to see Derek Lowe, and Dave Roberts again. I would have liked to to see Pedro there but I wasn't surprised that he wasn't a no show (I love him but he can be such a drama queen sometimes). My heart went out to all the soldiers who were on the field and to Johnny Pesky, I couldn't help but to shed a little tear for them. It was great to see the individuals that they chose to throw the first pitch (Tedy B. is looking good).

Wakefield was great at the plate and words cannot describe how much I love Dougie! Renteria had his first hit in a Sox uniform and he got a well-deserved standing ovation from the Fenway Faithful. The win was a great way to end such a wonderful day for Red Sox Nation.

Concerning the Yankees, I thought it was pretty classy of them to watch the entire ceremony from the dugout instead staying in the clubhouse. I applaud Joe Torre and the rest of guys for doing that. And, I will also commend most of the Fenway Faithful for not booing Joe Torre because he is a great manager. I couldn't help but laugh with Mariano Rivera when he was given a standing ovation by the Fenway Faithful. He was a good sport!

Just to clarify, I am a die hard Sox fan and I do not like the Yankees, but I do respect them. No, I do not think that they suck because I (unlike some fans) am not blind when it comes to talent. I give kudos to the Yankee fans who accepted the heartbreaking reality of the 2004 ALCS instead of those who chose to be denial and spew such harsh words. It sucks being on the losing team and having to eat a huge piece of humble pie but please, do it graciously even if some of my fellow RS citizens incessantly gloat. The Yankees are (despite their outrageous payroll and their owner) are a CLASS organization and having a couple of delusional fans doesn't help boast a classy image. Also, as Sox fans we've had to be the losing team for 86 years and frankly, it nice not having to eat any of that crusty pie anymore!

Anyway, I can't wait to see how things turn out this year and like the rest of Red Sox Nation, we can't until we see you guys in the post season!

....................Playing the Race Card..................

This morning, I was lucky enough to make to class on time because someone on the bus decided to act like a total and complete drama queen. Ms. Drama Queen tried to pay half of the bus fare and use a student pass. Only junior high and high school students who attend public school are allowed to have and use a student bus pass. There are absolutely NO exceptions to this rule. The state wisely chose to only include public school students because Massachusetts has the most colleges in the country. If all college students were only permitted to pay the student fare (which is 50 cents, regular fare is 90), then the MBTA would be bankrupt lol.

Anyway, Ms. Drama Queen (who is African American and in her mid 20’s) stepped onto the bus flashed her student ID and student pass (which is required) to the driver (he is Caucasian) and only paid fifty cents. She is a college student. Keep in mind that I was sitting directly behind the bus driver, so I unfortunately, had a front seat to the drama. I guess for the first time, the driver noticed this and told her, in a very polite tone of voice to pay the rest of the bus fare. She rudely replied, “Call Carmen!!!” As she sat down she repeated this twice. The driver stopped the bus and again he politely asked her to pay the fare because she is making everyone on the bus late. She yelled out, “I don’t care! I can sit here all day! Call your supervisor Carmen!” So, he did but the nearest supervisor was not Carmen, it was some guy named Lou. We had to wait for over ten minutes until he came!

Lou came onto the bus and looked at her ID. He calmly explained to her that just because she goes to a state college doesn’t mean that she’s eligible for the student pass. As expected, she rolled her eyes and said that it’s not written that college students are excluded (even though it’s on ALL the schedules and the website). He sighed and told her that she can ride today but she can’t do this again. Defiantly, she said that she’s done it before (most bus drivers are oblivious) and would continue doing so. And that she was going to report them both to Carmen. Frustrated, Lou told the bus driver to not let her on tomorrow before stepping off the bus.

Two stops later, two teenagers came aboard, one was a boy and the other happened to be an African American girl. She tried to pass the driver without paying the fare. He kindly told her to leave and she stepped off. One older lady paid for her and she came back on. Ms. Drama Queen began ranting and calling the bus driver a racist and that he was prejudice! He was completely ignorant, she called him a specific orifice and she threatened to call Carmen! Finally, the bus driver told her to stop distracting him (he was almost missing stops) and that he was making the passengers uncomfortable (which was very true). After five minutes, she stopped and stepped off the bus when she saw her stop.

I’ve been taking the bus for a couple of months and the bus driver never once indicated that he is a racist. Actually, he is very polite to all of his passengers. He greets them when they first come on and tells them to have a good day when they step off. He has denied all individuals who refuse to pay the fare, not just the minorities. If Ms. Drama Queen happens to try to pull the same thing again, I will definitely come in defense of him because it is would so wrong if he were to get punished for her IGNORANCE and disrespect for the rules.

I have to make this perfectly clear, I am Cambodian American. I have unfortunately seen and experienced racism many times in my young life. So, I am in no way naïve when it comes to racism. However, I cannot stand it when individuals find any reason or excuse to “play the race card”. And, I especially hate it when it is used inappropriately. Ms. Drama Queen seemed to already have a horrible attitude from the start and I have the feeling that she is the type of person that ALWAYS has the race card up her sleeve so with just a flick of the wrist she can used it without any discretion.

Personally, I have NEVER done this to anyone! I like giving people the benefit of the doubt. And when someone disagrees with me or points out one of my mistakes, I don’t automatically assume that they’re doing so because of my race. I’m a rational person and I don’t live my life being angry at everyone all the time. Constantly being on the defensive is not living. It’s exhausting and pointless.

So here's an update on Ms. Drama Queen. When I came out of my house I saw her waiting at the stop and groaned. Suprisingly, when we boarded the bus she didn't say a word and paid the full fare. Of course, she didn't apologize to the bus driver but that was expected. I guess she called "Carmen" and found out how wrong she had been. I doubt that Carmen exists and if she does, then she was completely misinformed.

And I have another bus story that happened to me this past week. And, it did not invovled Ms. Drama Queen.
As I was boarding the bus home an African American man (who was in his 40's) only paid 50 cents!!! He refused to pay the rest because he claimed that he didn't have it and had such an attitude. The bus driver (who was an elderly Asian man, he had to be in his 60's) yelled at him but didn't want to hold up everyone so he drove on. When the African American man went to step off the bus the driver said that next time he'd call the police. The man said, "Yeah, call the FBI!" He got back on the bus and tried to PUNCH the driver! He missed and a man that was larger than him got in front of him. He stepped off and repeated his FBI line again. What the heck is wrong with people?!
