That the US Post Office will sell you insurance on any item you ship via USPS against the chance that they lose of damage it. I mean, isnâ€™t that like McDonalds selling you insurance that the burger you eat is well done and wonâ€™t make you sick? And doesnâ€™t it say even more about the integrity of the USPS that they wonâ€™t take responsibility for the items you PAY to have them get from one place to another in a timely/safe manner?
What if your babysitter offered insurance that she wouldnâ€™t bend, break , or mutilate your kids while they were in their care? Hookers need to start selling insurance against catching an STD from them.
What brought this on is that I finally mailed my 857d off to the yaesu folks in Southern California. Itâ€™ll be there in 3 days. Had to insure my $800 radio â€œjust in case.â€ Which didnâ€™t cost much but just seems wrong for some reason. But, itâ€™s off and hopefully itâ€™ll be an easy fix. And inexpensive fix. A Cheap Fix would do.
And that pretty much sums up my day. Went for some walks. Climbed on the roof to take down the rest of my multi-band fan dipole. Gardening. Burned trash when it started to sprinkle a bit.
Got to pick SWMBO up; cause itâ€™s Friday and thatâ€™s what we do on Friday. She had me go through McDonaldâ€™s on the way home. Even got the Dog a burger. I got a medium vanilla shake. Should have gotten a small vanilla shake.
She also had me spit into this test tube thingie for the Ancestry DNA testing. Thatâ€™ll be interesting. Even if I do test out as being a member of the Human race, will I actually have â€œfamilyâ€ out there somewhere? Weâ€™ll see in 3-5 weeks.
And thatâ€™s it. Iâ€™m feeling really tired and think Iâ€™ll go lay down. Maybe read a bit.
