This was an interesting factoid, but not as useful as I had hoped.

Yes! I used to like Pleasures, too. But it's more noticeable than I think I want.

Re: ***June is a top tier month LC Thread***

I suppose you know that 27 is fairly virulently anti-GSD. If he is for some reason anti-grilled-cheese then I for one am starting to see a somewhat serious issue. Perhaps it has to do with the letter G?

Re: ***June is a top tier month LC Thread***

I think a good grilled cheese requires one slice of swiss and one slice of cheddar/american.

I've got ham as the best addition, you should heat the ham on each side for few seconds in the pan before adding to the sandwich. It eliminates moisture and heats the ham.

I think grilled cheese is one of the few spots where bacon isn't great, exception to this is if we're dealing with cheddar. I could also see pepper jack being fine but I never have. Perhaps low sodium bacon would be better as well, because the saltiness is the main detraction - perhaps maple bacon with a cheese that pairs well... I'm glad we had this chat.

Re: ***June is a top tier month LC Thread***

I watched a car, driven by an old, with a disabled placard, drive past an open handicapped parking spot and park in a regular spot a few slots down. I've seen handicap cars parked in normie spaces before, but had never actually seen it happen. Without seeing it, you can't be sure that it wasn't a case of all handicap spaces being full, right?

I was pretty tilted, and was seriously considering saying something, but when the driver got out, he was... not spry, exactly, but doing ok. And it occurred to me, maybe he has really bad days, and needs closer parking, but today he's doing great, and doesn't want to take that one spot in case someone really needs it. That thought hadn't crossed my mind before.

Am I getting soft in thinking of this somewhat convoluted justification and feeling some empathy for the crippled old? I'm obviously not alone in getting pissed when seeing that HC sticker parked in a normal spot when there are plenty of HC spots open, right?

Re: ***June is a top tier month LC Thread***

LFS,

Until that day, the only reason I'd been able to think of for someone with a placard to park in a non-reserved spot was that when they showed up, all the spots were full. I'd never actually seen it happen, though. I thought that passing up spots reserved specifically for you was basically just a middle finger to everyone, a domination of a scarce resource out of ignorance or spite or some other petty motivation.

Whenever I see something stupid, I generally chalk it up to stupidity or selfishness. Occam's razor and all. And I still think it would be a mistake to see something unusual and think, "Ah, that person is exceptionally thoughtful," because people just aren't. But in this case I was able to both see the opening situation and watch the actor afterwards, and I had a different thought. So I was curious if my normal reaction was overly cynical, if my new reaction was overly empathetic, or something between.

PS - if you've got three urinals, the farthest reserved for the boss, and every time you walked in the bathroom he was camped in the middle urinal, you not only wouldn't be annoyed, but couldn't relate? Let's pull together your canonization papers.

I do think your typical reaction is overly cynical, and I don't think those situations are analogous.

And that is why I deleted the snark, I'm far far far from perfect. I think the appearance of the empathetic reaction is a wonderful thing. I am personally much happier when I feel that way. I am definitely more than capable of finding fault in everything in the world around me and resenting all of it and am absolutely miserable when I'm living that way.

It's also completely possible that it was Mrs Old who earned the handicap parking privilege and he didn't want to abuse the fact that he was only driving her car.
