Coffee Talk: Dating Don’ts and Political Putzes

Coffee Talk {living outside the stacks}

I’d like to welcome you to Coffee Talk. If you’re new here, this is where I share some of the great and not~so~great stuff that I find on the web. Topics range from news stories that leave me scratchin’ my head to DIYs that I think are absolutely clever. And, who knows, there may even be a recipe thrown in here or there just for fun.

Did you hear about the guy who filed a lawsuit against a woman for texting during their date? He said that her texting was a “threat to civilized society.” Seriously, dude? When you go out on a date, especially a first date, you get what you get. The remedy to what you see as her bad behavior? DON’T GO OUT WITH HER AGAIN!! I agree, texting during a movie is rude, but you don’t get to establish / enforce rules just because you go out on a date with someone. Furthermore, the article goes on to say that she was his ride to the theater. *blank stare* I think she ought to counter sue for gas money. Yes, I’m that petty.

This photo is not relevant to anything; I just thought it was funny. And so very Squeekerz.

Ya know, I’ve said that someone in a place of authority {not a writer or someone from the general public}, but another politician needs to call Trump out on his boorish behavior. I guess Montenegro’s Prime Minister Dusko Markovic ain’t the one. Dude, Trump rudely pushed you out of the way and you dismissed it as “simply a harmless situation”? Stop normalizing this man’s behavior. He’s rude and pompous. A spoiled little boy stuck in a spoiled grown man’s body. Side note: you should follow Pete Souza {do it now, you’ll thank me later}. Beautiful photography with a side of shade.

And speaking of violence, grabbing folks, and being an all around jerk. When are the American people going to stop treating politics like a reality show and understand that these elections have real consequences? Montana, I’m looking at you. I realize that many of the votes were cast prior to the physical altercation but an individual doesn’t just wake up one day and decide to be a jerk. There are hints.

Now, it’s your turn… What’s going on in your world? Anything have you scratching your head or belly laughing? Is there a book I absolutely must add to my TBR Shelf? Have you cooked or ordered anything tasty?
