A Trip to Jiffy Lube
 by Fëanor

I took the car to Jiffy Lube today for the "Signature Service" (which is an oil change, plus whatever else they can talk me into, which is usually one or two relatively expensive extras). Brought the kid with me. He was good.

I should mention the only maintenance I have ever personally performed on my vehicle is that once or twice I've helped to replace a flat tire with a donut, and a few times when I was out of state I personally poured gas into the tank. If there is ever some apocalyptic scenario wherein all the mechanics are killed and I somehow survive, the car will be a wreck in no time.

So I felt my manhood shrivel up and cower inside me in the Jiffy Lube waiting room as two muscular contractors talked about all the giant stuff they've built and how they only take their big old trucks to Jiffy Lube for oil changes (more cost effective) and do the rest of the maintenance themselves. By the end of the visit they had exchanged names and business cards. Meanwhile, the lady at the register was wishing all the male customers a Happy Father's Day. Which seemed weird to me, as first of all, it is not Father's Day yet, and secondly, I was the only one there with a kid, and what the hell, maybe he wasn't even mine, you don't know!

Anyway. That's my story. Bye.

Cars
 by Fëanor

While driving poppy to work this morning, a white Mercedes Benz with tinted windows pulled out in front of us. I'm already thinking, rather uncharitably, "The person driving this car is probably a jerk." Then I see that the license plate is a personalized one reading "ON QVC," and it is set in a "Mercedes Benz of Beverly Hills" license plate frame. Yeah, that person is definitely a jerk. Also, I nearly choked myself laughing. Did they somehow get the car from QVC? Does QVC sell cars? Or is this a person who often hosts QVC specials? Regardless... wow.

Later on, saw another car with a personalized license plate: "MIN RICE." Does that mean something I don't know or does this person just really love minute rice?
