Hi all.  I'm still working on the first big piece of "my goal", but I wanted to get this out tonight.  Two burritos and a liquid-shit later, I bring to you - Joe.

Anyone who knows me well would probably agree that I'm a Taco Bell connoisseur of sorts.  While this isn't something to brag about, there's a TB two minutes away from my job, and another one two minutes from my house.  I like to think that destiny predetermined this fate, and it is my obligation to partake in their beautifully disastrous creations.  That, and I'm a lazy guy in my twenties.

That said, Taco Bell is a place you go to when you're drunk, broke, or hungry maaaannnnnn, and not typically an establishment where you can expect to take away anything more than a bag of food-ish meat paste in a wrap.  But then again, most Taco Bells don't have a Joe. 

Fellow South Daytonians undoubtedly know about this legend already, but for those who don't, Joe is an older gentleman that works at the Taco Bell in South Daytona.  He typically works during "Fourth Meal" at the register taking orders.  You'll know if he's there, because he greets all of his friends before asking what they want to order.  No matter the weather, the amount of time you take, the amount of questions you ask, it's always a beautiful order to Joe.  Sick as a dog and barely able to talk, and Joe will be there smiling merrily as he sincerely wishes you a safe night through a hoarse whisper.

I don't know Joe outside of Taco Bell, and I'm quite sure I've never seen him anywhere else. He could be homeless, alone, and poor for all I know.  I mean, think about it;  he's an older guy working graveyard in a line of work that is often seen as the lowest of low.   It would make perfect sense for this to be a fitting scenario, but I can't be sure that it is.

I can talk to someone random in a bar for five minutes and usually get a pretty good idea of how happy they are with their life (belligerent drunks aside).  Body language, facial expressions, tone, choice of's easy if you break it down.  If you need practice, just hop on the ol' Facebook.  I'm sure you'll find someone complaining about something in their life within a scroll or two.  We live in the age of whining, bitching, and misery.

People have become so dependent on such trivial bullshit, they've forgotten that happiness is a state of mind.  When someone surprises you with a gift that you've wanted, that feeling of happiness didn't come pouring out of that box.  Your mind instantly synchronized with a feeling of pleasure before it even had a reason to exist.  If you're happy, it's because you're allowing yourself to feel happy.  If you're unhappy, it's because you're allowing yourself to feel unhappy.  Life is what you make of it, not what you can't make of it.  Smile, and be happy with life because you want to be.   Even if you don't really think the order is beautiful, you just might make someone realize what true happiness is.

Joe, if by chance you ever see this, thanks for inspiring me to be a better person.  This probably seems like a lot to pull out of mere drive-thru interactions, but I promise your magic is there.  Please never change.


P.S.  If anyone does know Joe personally and know about his personal life, please don't tell me.  Just grasp the fucking message I tried to convey and have a great day mmkay?

That was a snazzy title, eh?  (that's eh as in the sound you make when someone asks if you want a bite of their food right after you just ate, not the Canadian one, buddy)

So this is it.  The beginning, all over again - but the way I wanted to all along.  I started this as a project a few years back that I could anonymously ramble onto, but I've since had the realization that if everything goes as planned, I'll be eventually...revealing myself anyways - so why not now?

 To those who have been keeping up on here, Reddit, and over at BC, you know my aspirations.  I've been working on a book for quite some time now, and just recently got back to it.  My goal is for the end of the year, but we'll see.  I'll update that as it comes along, but that's not my main intention for the change.

Since I began this, my life has developed in multiple ways.  I've been in and out of a couple relationships, moved to a new location, started a new job, and become much more active in...activism.  I've always had my thoughts on touchy subjects, but it wasn't until a couple months ago that I began to really do my research.  I wont make this post too long, so I'll let the song playing on my Pandora station at the moment that is (very scarily) summarizing what I want to say: "It's so loud inside my head, with words that I, should have said" (Lupe Fiasco, Words I Never Said).

I've got some really big plans, and well developed goals now.  I'm a Leo, a born leader, and I wont stop until I'm where I want to be.  I'm going to leave that a bit vague for now on purpose.

That said, thank you to everyone that's inspired me to finally do this.  To the new, the world, that knows me as Aaron....thank you for checking this out.  I've put a lot of effort into, what I intend to be, a huge part of my life - this project.  It's more than this blog, and it's more than I can say in an introduction.  If you stick around, I promise you it'll be worth it.

I just wrote this in a single draft, so I'll apologize beforehand for the disorganization.  My next post will be stamped Rabal G.

A message from your biological father

Hi all,

Once again, it's been a while since I've posted on the ole' blog.  I'd like to apologize, as I've been away conceiving your soon-to-be sister.

In between thrusts, I've been writing a novel.  I'm not releasing details yet, but I will soon.  Better believe it will be fucking awesome though!

P.S.  I checked my E-mail, and I  have a few more of my "Classifieds Trolling" stories that I will post soon.  In the meantime, ration this small post - as it is all I have for now. - RG

One Million Morons

I was browsing Facebook today, when I came across a link that a friend of mine had posted.  It was an article written by the "One Million Moms" project - a branch of the the American Family Association (I know, they spelled "Self Righteous Tyrant" wrong).  OMM is essentially a group of conservative, bible thumping old hags, with nothing better to do then try to make the rest of the world as miserable as them.  Their approach is what makes it golden. in black swastika on a red and white field.

In a nutshell, the article was about one of their "current issues": Ellen Degeneres being the new spokesperson for JC Penny.  Allow me to share some direct quotes from the article:

"Funny that JC Penney thinks hiring an open homosexual spokesperson will help their business when most of its customers are traditional families"


"Degeneres is not a true representation of the type of families who shop at the retailer. The small percentage of customers they are attempting to satisfy will not offset their loss in sales by offending the majority."

If you are a decent human being, you will understand the complete audacity that these conservative nazis had posting this.  If not, go away - forever.  Needless to say, I felt it was necessary to send them an E-mail:

Hello One Million Moms,

I just finished reading your article regarding the current JC Penny issue. I wanted to state that prior to reading it, I had no idea that an openly homosexual woman had become the spokesperson for JC Penny. This is definitely against tradition, and will undoubtedly make me think twice before I try on my next pair of blue jeans.

What is JC Penny thinking? What would possibly make them think that hiring a successful entertainer to be their spokesperson, would satisfy us, the customers? Did they not even consider the fact that us close-minded members of One Million Moms would be offended by this?

Holy Head-up-the-ass syndrome Batman!

I actually look forward to a JC Penny boycott. It's quite exciting to know that the members of OMM will be teaming up together, while simultaneously creating an enjoyable shopping environment for those who don't discriminate. It would operate like any other day of operation for JC Penny, except there wouldn't be any cranky old ladies getting in my way, trailing the smell of their retired snatch wagons around the store.

All in all OMM, I commend your efforts to create a better environment for JC Penny. As the great Abraham Lincoln once said, "nobody likes old ladies who are jealous that a lesbian is making much more money than their entire organization will ever pull in".

Kindest Regards

In the unlikely event that I receive a reply - I'll be sure to share. RG

Free Firewood

Being an asshole on Craigslist has become quite the hobby of mine while sitting at work, bored.  I'm sure what makes it so fun - but it is.

Here, I bring out the hidden monster of what appeared to be a kind woman.

Any chance I could have you cut some of the wood for me?  I am missing my left arm, and unable to use a tool that would be able to suffice in this process.

That's unfortunate.  I was asking if you could help, as I'd rather not have to drag my brother along with me.  His doctor says his condition prevents him from being able to do physical work without extreme pain in his lower abdomen, but fortunately for us, he lacks vocal chords and is unable to make any forms of audible noise when said pain occurs, that may bother us as we work.

When would be a good time for Thadeus and I to come by and chop?

Well, don't worry about chopping wood, you would be the last person I would allow come to my place. As I stated in my reply email, I CAN'T CUT IT EITHER, MY DR. WON'T ALLOW ME TO DO ANY PHYSICAL WORK!

Ms ********,

I immediately took your conditions into consideration, and would not in a million years expect you to chop any of the wood.  Thadeus has already agreed to help in doing so, and is very excited to get out of his cage.

While I appreciate your concern in whether I am able to handle the physical work myself, I assure you that I am quite capable.  While I will be letting Thadeus do most of the work, I will be keeping up with him as much as my left arm will let me.

I am however concerned upon the fact that you seem to have grown slightly hostile.  I apologize if our handicaps have offended you - believe me, we don't like them either.  I do hope that you reconsider your generous offer, and think of us as equals.

Faithfully yours, and hopefully warm this winter,

I'm sorry it has come to this Ms. *******, but this has gone too far.  Your discrimination against handicapped people is utterly disgusting, and being brought to the proper attention.

Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), it is prohibited to place discrimination on the basis of disability.

Seeing as you initiated our meeting with such a generous offer, I am willing to allow you to redeem yourself, before actions are taken. 

All I want is to keep my brother and I warm this winter, and I find it preposterous that your hatred might possibly prevent this from happening.

Hoping you come to your senses,

The iPad Grinch

Hello all,

As you may or may not have noticed (fuck you if you're in the latter), I have not posted a new blog entry in quite some time.  Over the course of the past few months, I have moved into a new home and acquired a new work schedule.  I'm still getting adjusted, but I assure you I will be back.

Something to look forward to though: I've been trolling my local classified ads lately as of late, and gathered quite a few interesting stories.  I'll be sharing these in the future, but here's an example of one from last Friday (keep in mind, the day before Christmas eve).  Also, I am “Sal Weddle”

Here’s the original add that was posted:

I am selling my mom's iPad.  It has only been used once or twice, I'm not sure exactly.  She's only had it for 2 days.

It is a 16gb, black, with wifi.  I will let it go for $480

I am located in Winter Park.  I could live with $450 for sure, as it is not my iPad.  I am unsure as to the status of the box, and I can't ask my mother about it, or she will know I am selling it.  

I will do what I can to find the box, and get back to you.  Where would be a good place to meet up?

I can definitely understand your concern there.  Please understand though that my mother suffers from severe dementia, and more than likely, will not even remember owning this iPad come another week.  At that point, we will be putting it up for sale anyways.

It's your call.

My apologies,

I thought that you needed it today, since that's what your ad stated.  I'd prefer to get rid of this as soon as possible, so that I can buy my mom the new iPhone 4S.  How about I throw in the protective case for it, and we call it a deal for $460.

I did, but it's just getting too late in the day...Company coming soon.  I found one in unopened box for 450 anyway...but still too late to get it today...its a 1/2 hour ride away.  These are only 499 from the store and with that I have the option to return it if something were to happen.  Without a box and given the circumstances, I would only be willing to go $400 for yours. It's just not worth saving 40 bucks to not have the comfort level of a new,store bought unit.

Well lucky for you, I desperately need to get this iPhone 4S.  My mother is a huge techy, and is absolutely obsessed with "Siri".  How about $400, with the case, and I'll throw in a signed copy of Lenny Kravitz's "Mama says" album.

I don't mean to be cold, but it would be quite unkind for you to lead me on this long, and then completely ruin my mother's Christmas.  Please be supportive, and not a Grinch.

The adventures of Bing

Today while I was avoiding work and surfing a discussion board on the internet, a man posted multiple off the wall topic discussions.  As I do not have permission to use his name, he will be referred to from now on as "Bing".  While I give Bing credit for both his enthusiasm as well as his creativity, his English is a  Each time I saw one of his topics arise,  I stopped myself from being myself (a dickhead), and bit my tongue.  Eventually, it built up inside of me and I slipped

His topic was: "What is evil world? And how many other worlds are there? And how did you know?" [sic]

The obvious, and only true answer:

There are approximately forty-two other planets in the universe, twelve of which contain life-forms. One of these planets, specifically, contains such a variety of life - it is truly amazing. The creatures range from small mole likes creatures that travel in packs of three, to large dragon type brutes that fly the open skies. During my time on this specific planet, I made friends with a small monster that resembled an earthling mouse. We didn't get along at first, but we came to be best friends. During our time together we teamed up to tame other forms of wild beasts, as well as fended off the evil gangs that controlled the planet.

I know all of this, because Pikachu is my best friend, and I just had to catch them all.

While I received replies of "lulz", there was one man right in center who's broken English was still able to have been interpreted as slightly less than tickled.  While I entered this information in a reply to his question as a means of answering it with a credible source, Bing sought to find the subliminal message in it, and confronted me.

After twenty minutes of back and forth messaging, Bing finally got his point across.  From what I gathered, Bing only appreciated serious answers, as the questions he asked were very serious.  I apologized to Bing, and expressed my sincerity in attempting to fine tune my future responses in such matters.

Ten minutes go by, and oh look.. Bing has started a new discussion.  Let's see if this is a little more...nope...for fuck's sake.

"Somethings that you wouldn't do.  Say it out now." [sic]

Now it was never my goal to piss Bing off, but apparently it is a god-given ability of mine.  All I wanted was to fit in, and answer his logical queries with responses at, or close to the same level of logic.  Makes sense, right?  My reply:

I would never eat green eggs and ham. I'm a pretty big fan of eggs, and I absolutely love ham...but that little Sam I am bimbo will not convince me that 'going green' applies to my beloved breakfast. Go away Sam I am! Go away!

Within minutes, an unwarranted message arrives.  Mr. Bing sends me a final message for the evening, wishing me a good evening, as well as offering incentives for me to be involved in future posts! ...or at least that's what I made out of  "I hope you are happy with tonight.  Only stupid one and coward one would"
