This time last week I lost a camera, since then both my Apple mouses have packed up, my discogs orders have dried up (though a couple have gone missing/been delayed, occasioning annoying phone calls and trips to the post office), I've pulled a muscle in my side so it hurts when I lay down, and today there's been some kind of plumbing meltdown that has left us not only without heating and hot water, but pretty much any water at all, and the worst weather of the winter predicted in 24-48 hours. And no-one – not me, not the landlady – can contact the plumber.
Fucksticks.

So, I have to set this up a little. My son has a friend in my apartment complex he's gone to school with since kindergarten. They go to the complex's hot tub at night and bike in the park behind my apartment. They hang out a lot. They also pull jokes on each other.

Drake, the kid's name, has lately left his fast food cups, bags and wrappers or other junk at my front door so have to clean it up.

I came home yesterday, and I noticed Drake in front of our building (large complex, many buildings) and was heading towards our stairway with an orange cone that workers had left when they were fixing the concrete sidewalks. He saw me, I saw him, knew what he was doing and shouted, "You're busted, Drake." He sheepishly walked away.

I got up the stairs to my place and noticed there were three other cones there already so I caught him in mid-act. I brought them back down and put them with the others.

Later in the evening, my son called Drake to arrange going to the hot tub. I whispered to my son to put Drake on speaker phone.

I said, "Hi, Drake, this is Derek's dad."

"HI, Mr. Crook," Drake said.

I continued, "Hey Drake, that was a funny lil' act I caught you pulling earlier. Just to let you know, I called the office and recommended that they evict your family. Your mom should be getting a request to leave or eviction notice by the end of the week."

Silence.

"So, I hope you're happy and when your mom asks what happened, you tell her you were responsible for your family having to leave.

More silence.

"Drake, are you there?"

"Yes."

"One last thing," I said. "I'm kidding - who punked who, dude?"

"That wasn't funny," Drake concluded.

I was kinda hoping after I responded that that wasn't happening too.

My suspicion is brutto is a spammer, but since there was no link in the post, I approved it. If I'm wrong I'm sure he or she will explain themselves/elaborate shortly...

Minnie was responding to your starting your story with a superfluous "So" - a pet peeve of hers (and mine).

Oh.

So, what's wrong with that?

I know this thread doesn't get much action these days, but your your criticism of snow seems to have put it out of its misery.

My company offered me a campaign in Seattle. It'd be a $1.5 million dollar campaign with my pay increasing by about 50%.
