Caution: I Might Be Insensitve Here

The Supercuts Story is all over the place. Chicagoist wrote it up, the Trib, etc. etc.

Well, it reminds me a little bit of that Seinfeld episode, where Elaine goes to a nail salon owned and operated by Korean ladies, who mock her in Korean. She brings in Mr. Costanza to be her undercover translator, yada, yada.

While I know absolutely nothing about the women in the suit or the manager of Supercuts, my snap judgement was that the manager was paranoid that the employees were somehow making fun of her/him in Spanish - or is super-nosey and therefore annoyed by other people having conversations she/he cannot understand. Otherwise, who cares? The problem is the store manager, not the Supercuts company. Eliminate the management - and I am sad/sorry if it takes a lawsuit to report a sucky manager.

I think the much bigger story is how there might be a fuel truck exploding, somewhere, sometime soon, but not too soon, but nobody's going to do anything, because nobody knows if it's going to happen, or not, and well people say crazy stuff every DAY, but since 9/11 all this crazy talk has to be communicated to the public lest the government be hiding something. This is such a damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don't situation. Blogs will complain about it either way, guaranteed.

So, here you go everyone, safety tips for crazy talk: Stay in your homes until October 1st. Don't go out. Don't drive anywhere. Don't go grocery shopping. If you live near a filling station where a fuel truck might park, move immediately. And, by the way, have a great weekend!
