Some Things I Don't Want To Know

One defining thing about me is that I have an insatiable curiosity, and a true need to solve the puzzles that confront me when out in the world.
When I see something odd, my immediate reaction is to start gathering clues and formulating an explanation that fits them.
I then turn this into a story that's worth a few laughs, more often than not.
If I happen to have a picture, it usually ends up here on Zzakk's Garage.

Not this time.

Finding pants in a portapotty is certainly odd, but in this case I'm not curious enough to look for clues.
The only logical explanation involves some guy crapping his pants in public, so the investigation stopped before it started.

Ride To The Poor House?

24-hour Veterinary Clinics are a sure way to end up with a dead pet and a bill that'll require a 2nd mortgage for most people.

Add a pet ambulance charge and you might as well bring the pink slip to your car along, although if you have a car why are you calling an ambulance?
They have to drive twice as far and I'm pretty sure that using a siren and speeding isn't allowed, so unless your fat-ass dog needs a defibrulator to re-start it's lazy heart, what can a vet's assistant really do?

Sure, I "love" my snake and guppies, and the dogs and cats before them.
But there's a limit.
Maybe the time I spent on a farm in Tennessee has something to do with my pragmatism?
I have ridden in an ambulance only once despite major car accidents, nearly biting my tongue off (OUCH-and gallons of blood) etc.
Just isn't worth it most of the time.

Much like calling the cops because your husband slapped you--does giving a third party (lawyers, the court) a bunch of money solve the problem?
It's easier and cheaper to just bring him that sandwich...

I don't know if I like "clever" church signs or not.
On the one hand they can be humorous, if you find eight year olds funny.
But they can be a distraction to drivers.

I think I'll just turn the other cheek...
