WTF Mr. Milkman!?









Dear Rev. Jack,

My milkman is cranky and petty.

He complains all the time. If I don't leave my empty bottles out, he gets bent out of shape and accuses me of becoming independently wealthy $.50 at a time by returning them fraudulently to the grocery store.

Then, he complains that I leave two many bottles out at once. I had to hear him whine about "35 bottles" today.

I hate him.

Should I tip him at Christmas? Should I deliberately annoy him with crazy milk bottle-related antics?

Or should I come to the door in a negligee and see if that mellows him out?

Signed,
Milk Fed-Up

I would remind him that if the dangerous, high-stress career as a milkman is too much for him, his job can be easily replaced by a once a week trip to the Oberweis store (or Dominicks if you aren't picky).

Although, it's against my principles to completely nix the negligee plan.

He must do double-duty as my newsapaper delivery guy. He might deliver the paper at 9:00 a.m, or not at all. If I call to either ask for a delivery of a missed paper or a credit on the account, he gets very angry. First he calls me, then shows up at the house and throws the paper at the front door, rings the door bell, and snarls at me.

But every year, from Thankgsgiving 'til a week before Christmas, the paper is delivered promptly, right up to the door (instead of at the street, like the rest of the year.) Of course, he puts a card in there with his name and address - fishing for a holiday tip.

My tip? Don't be such a nasty asshole the rest of the year.

I am in full disagreement with both of these "fellows."
First and foremost, a negligee is the perfect reponse to any conflict!
And (B) whatever happened to taking pride in ones chosen persona. Why it sounds like this paperman is the perfect asshole. Who else among us can claim perfection in any aspect of our lives?
Kudos to the paperman and best of luck to the Milkman! There but for the curse of charm go I!

1: Oberweiss!?! You're advocating buying milk from that fucking NAZI? There'll be plently of time to enrich his coffers when he burns down the Springfield Reichstag and takes over.

2: Remember the mailman from Funny Farm? He was pretty funny.

But he's a Nazi who produces very yummy milk, without pesticides or hormones...shut up B.A. Do you want me to analyze all of YOUR purchases?

Umm...I think you'd be hard-pressed to find anything that I've bought from a privately-held company owned by a NAZI who has run for political office on a platform of NAZI-ism.

And even harder-pressed to find me recommending that anyone else buy said product.


Remember the tow truck driver in Neighbors? He was pretty funny too.

Dearest Reverend,

I showed restraint today. The paper was only two hours late. I didn't call to complain. I just went into a waffle-making frenzy. In a negligee. To keep with the theme. And lo. Behold, too. Eventually it appeared. I will handle all of life's little challenges with inaction.

I wonder how that'll work out.

Inaction and lethargy! That's the Dryesdale way!

I was just browsing various blogs as I was doing a search on the word halloween, and I just wanted to say that I really like what you've done with your blog, even though it wasn't particularly related to what I searched for. I appreciate your postings, and your blog is a good example of how a blog should be done. I've only just recently started a Posters website - feel free to visit it when you get a chance if you wish. Much success, antonio.
