Tim Horton's has been the source of some ranting for me, and it continues to engage me in unexpected situations.
During the last visit, on the way to recording Episode 69, I was heading to pick up two coffees for Shane and I. Looking ahead of me, I saw something bright blue on the pavement. I knew immediately it was a five dollar bill.
I drove up, hopped out, grabbed my camera, and shot a photo from ground level. Luckily, I was being shielded by the truck while I took the photo. Truthfully, I did look around to see if someone had been killed in the distance, scattering money into the wind. There's not a whole lot around this coffee shop, so there could have been some nefarious happenings occurring in the field behind the lot.
I started thinking about the last time I found money.
I'm one of those people who walks to the money when I see it, and I step on it immediately. In case someone else sees it, I want to have 170 pounds resting in it when the sucker reaches to pick it up.
It's so lame that I (we) do this, because we know that this money might belong to someone else, and we will be out some free money.
I can't help it. Unless I see an oaf pull out his wallet and mishandle his cash with chubby fingers, watching it fall to the floor, and he doesn't notice, then that cash is mine. I'm not a thief, just a competitive money-grubber.
There's a difference.
Shane's a thief.
I'm only interested in stealing 35 minutes of your life every week.
If only I could find more listeners so easily...

Hey guys - I was freakin\\\' dying laughing heading into Nashville today. I almost missed two speed cops parked on the side of the road - bastards were on each side of the road! Isn\\\'t that entrapment? On the titles of your episodes... I use to perform improv comedy quite regularly when I lived in Ireland. There is a game called PICK ME UP (it has other names too). You may have seen it on Who\\\'s Line Is It Anyway? The idea is the audience write lines down on pieces of paper then they get crumpled up and thrown on to the stage. The actors have to only use those lines that they pick up to carry on the scene. It gets quite weird, but also very funny. I was thinking it would be cool to have a form, where your listeners could submit a word. Then you choose a few randomly to create the title of episodes.... Just a thought. I\\\'ll shut up now. Way to call out that joker with the Aussie bux! Too funny. D
