Complaints Department - Road Edition: Fall Out Part 1

First off, I'm still laughing my ass off on what happened just as we hit K.C., more on that later. The trip started off a bit behind schedule as we didn't get out of town until 4:30, but at least we missed rush hour traffic. The trip is a bit of a buzz kill as we are rollin' packing 3 chitlins in the back and their Nintendo DS's. It's all good because we're up front listening to various XM radio stations. We weren't pressed so we're slow ridin' up to K.C.

Just so you know, I believe how I have made my feelings known about people who drive slow and just hang in the left lane, not to mention that it is against the law. Well, I have backup from a Missouri state trooper that hauled ass passed us to snag some guy in an Acura, but in the way is some dipshit in a red Accord and even with the trooper on his ass, he still didn't get over. The trooper goes around him in the right lane and barrels down on that Acura. The trooper then IMMEDIATELY gets out of the car, walks right into the middle of the road and flags down that dumbass in the red Accord. HA!!! That was a treat for the ol' eyes there.

Around 7:00, we hit south K.C. The chitlins are now hungry and whining(didn't see that coming). The Day Tripper says to hit the first chain outfit we see. Now, this is the part that gets me to laughing my ass off. We pull into south K.C., if any of you know this area, then you know it's GHET-TO. I ain't sayin' nothin', it ain't bothering me. HOWEVER, in the infinite wisdom and foresight of the Day Tripper, she has chosen to wear her Jared Allen Jersey. Just one problem, it's the NEW Jared Allen jersey from...MINNESOTA! Yeah, she got some strange looks with those colors flyin'. The McD's we rolled into was smack dab in the middle of this hood and at this point, I'm just smiling. Everyone gets their food, I get my McRibs and the scarfing ensues. As we are eating, police cars are going by at a rate of 1 to every 5 minutes with the lights going and sirens blaring...ah, brings back memories. Day Tripper and husband with chitlins in tow are now wanting to leave for some reason. Just as we are chunking things in the garbage, some guy rolls in while still rolling a blunt, just licking it, putting the final touches on it. At this point we're leaving the place and I am about to come undone with laughter... I finally did as we leave the parking lot.

This to me is funny as hell. I'm already having fun and we didn't even hit the park yet, that'll be tomorrow.

STAY TUNED

Oh, I can't wait to hear the rest of the stories if that was the first one! Geeez, and I thought it was amazingly funny yesterday when we went to The Outback with my father driving and the door fell right off of his car!

California Girl said...

I so want to go on a trip with you! Already I am laughing and enjoying your trip as if I were on it. Have a ton of fun and I can't wait to read more!

Fun fun fun. I would have made the bambino's wait until we got to a different neighborhood. Is the McRibb really still back?

Complaint Department Manager said...

Caspar - Sure seemed like it, you should have been there.

Kim - Oh, where to start...

Cali girl - Anybody who goes with us HAS to sign a waiver.

Jennylu - I wasn't going to say anything, but hey, they were the ones making the calls, I was just there enjoying the show. Yeah, the McRib is back and I got an option to get a second sammich for a buck more added to th meal. Not too bad, but it wasn't all that(strictly my opinion).

I'm exhausted and I have a sinus headache. I need a vacation. I'll post the pics and more details tomorrow or something.

LOL - hilarious. That's really funny...sounds like my neighborhood.

JL said...

Priceless! Brings back memories of when I lived on that side of KC. Can you picture that? LOL!!!

Kim said...

Yeah, I always need a vacation when I get back from vacation, too! Vacations are exhausting! :-o

Caspar608 said...

I need a road trip...DESPERATELY.

Kim said...

Oh come on, POST STORIES!

Complaint Department Manager said...

Darius - I thought I was going to bite my tounge in half from having to laugh as hard as I was going to.

JL - I wish everyone would have seen me up in there. It was no big thing to me.

Caspar - This road trip was a bit brief for me, I wish I had more time. Seems like I only get a couple of days anymore.

Kim - THURSDAY! Okay? I got a lot on my plate after I came back including 2 tests. I WILL get to it, I promise.
