“…pure randomness.”

8 Nov

With deer season beginning this past weekend, I thought I would share something with y’all that is deer related…

Some of you may have already heard about Donna the Deer Lady before but if not, you are in for a treat.  This woman, Donna, called into a radio station to vent about deer crossing signs and their placement.

If anything, it will make you feel better about yourself.  Please listen here.  It cracks me up every time I hear it.  I seriously thought she was joking the first time because I honestly thought that no one could be this stupid…turns out, stupidity in America should never shock me…

Speaking of deer, check out this cute, odd pair of animal friends.

It’s a Great Dane and an abandoned baby deer!  How cute are they??  You can watch of video of them playing together here.  I just love seeing animals paired up with strange friends…like Tara and Bella:

Tara & Bella: Elephant and Dog – Best Friends til Death

So cute.  Nature is very cool.

Did y’all hear about the little boy who was mauled to death at the Pittsburg Zoo?  The two-year-old little boy was placed on the edge of the railing by his mother (insert support for parenting test comment here) where he fell 14 feet into the African Painted Dog exhibit.

He was attacked by 11 dogs within the exhibit and was pronounced dead shortly after the dogs were lured away from him and locked up in a secure area.  Maybe it’s just me but first of all, I wouldn’t set my child on a railing, especially without holding him securely and second of all, if he fell into a pit of wild African dogs, I would jump in there and fight to my death to protect him.  I wasn’t there so obviously I don’t know exactly how the mother reacted or why she put her two-year-old son on a railing in the first place when signs are posted saying to not climb on the railing but something tells me that this incident could have easily been prevented and now the poor little boy is dead and the dogs are going to get a bad reputation or punished for acting like wild African dogs…one was even shot to death by a cop.  So sad.

**Warning to men:  This next bit is about lady business so if that weirds you out, skip to the next section…

I received a phone call the other day from my gynecologist’s office because I had just had my yearly appointment…well the receptionist was like, “We submitted your claim with your insurance and I wanted to let you know that it was rejected.”  Why was it rejected??  BECAUSE MY INSURANCE HAS ME LISTED AS A MALE!  What the heck?!  Obviously my gyno appointment isn’t going to be covered if they think I have the wrong anatomy!  The receptionist said, “You need to call them to get them to change it in order for your insurance to cover it because obviously WE know you are female but they apparently don’t.”  Lovely…so I called my insurance company who directed me to my benefits company who directed me to MY DIRECT EMPLOYER’S HR DEPARTMENT because THEY had me listed as a male.  Really?  I met you people in person…in a dress…what part of me made you think I was a male?  Slightly disturbing.  Everyone I was directed to was female and when I told them the story they started laughing and I was like, “Yeah…wouldn’t be as funny if you thought you were going to have to pay $200.  Fix it!”  So fortunately, it was fixed but I’m slightly concerned about my HR department…

As I was driving to work, I was behind a car when I noticed it’s tail lights…

Is it just me or do the tail lights look like beer mugs??  Maybe it was just all of the election business that was making me need a drink so my mind was thinking beer mugs…but to me, that’s exactly what they look like.
