Dear Merrifield Postal Worker:

Why did you choose to go postal Saturday morning while I and thousands of others were trying to successfully navigate the Capital Beltway? Do you not understand that you can’t play around with bomb threats? I sure hope whatever caused you to shut down the entire beltway for 2 hours was worth it.

Thanks to you, I now know the exact capacity of my bladder after ingesting 2 cups of coffee. One and a half hour ride good. Two hours of being parked on the Beltway, followed by two more hours of navigating the trip on side roads, not so good. A special shout out to the CVS manager in Silver Spring who took pity on me and let me into the employee bathroom after his clerk refused to let me use it. I believe my exasperated look and begging to take a Depends from the box and then purchase it, sealed the deal.

I would have just popped a squat a pissed on their floor...the idiots.

We had something similiar happen one time with my great grandmother. She had to #2, and we stopped at a convenience store and they refused to let her use the bathroom. My mother was IRATE and basically ripped them a new one. The woman WAS 90 years old and we were in the middle of the country on a back road with nothing else even close...finally, the clerk relented and my great grandmother, rest her soul, rewarded them by leaving a trail of shit from the van, through the store, and to the bathroom.

That'll teach 'em....GRRR!

HFS: I was at the edge. It would not have been pretty...

Judas: You made me snort out loud. Something I didn't think I was capable of these days. Thanks!
