The flu is going around and unfortunately, I have been so sick that I have been only able to go to work, come home, watch SOME TV, fluids, fluids, fluids, and go to bed. So just look at it as a mini break however I got sick from nastiness. Although I have been able to write a bit, it just needs to be scheduled and posted. A lot of it are things that I have already said regarding the veneer that Oak Park, IL tries to shine up for the rest of the area and world, that it is without fault, well, whoops they have been active in proving me right and that illusion wrong.
You hate for anyone to be victim to crime, assault or just being bamboozled but the way this year is unfolding all the “trash talking” as some people might call it. Is all being backed up. All you have to do is read the local paper or watch the news, which makes it easier for me to rant or not rant at all, and take a holiday, because Oak Park, IL seems to be eager to show its stupidity this year! All the while I can just sit back a drink hot (earl grey) tea, eat chicken noodle soup, have a couple Ritz crackers for a snack or even prepare a few cough drops for the inevitable gnashing while just sitting back and watch the lie unfold. Thanks Oak Park, IL for proving yourselves wrong.
I dumped some wallpaper to a google plus collection for public use.
“Security in Oak Park, IL wallpaper”: https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/U84UEE
“Oak Park IL fingers up wallpaper”: https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/suYVEE
The first collection of wallpaper I have posted in the collections selection of Google Plus I called “Oak Park IL fingers up wallpaper”. This is a sarcastic group collection of wallpapers for your computer (PC/MAC) regarding Security issues in Oak Park, Illinois. As I have posted on the blog before, the entities from building management companies, to the OP police department treat security issues and threats as if they have better things to do, like watch paint dry. Therefore, this collection is more of a statement towards the ones that don’t give a shit about you while you travel, rent, own or patron anything in Oak Park, IL your dollars are greatly not appreciated and Oak Park, Il could give a flying fig if you are butt hurt about it.
The second collection is called “Oak Park IL fingers up wallpaper”. What it is, is a collection of sarcastic wallpapers giving Oak Park IL both fingers up. I recreated a photo I once saw and crafted a template around it telling Oak Park, Il where the fuck to go. This is how most people feel half the time when dealing with such everyday Oak Park, Il issues like parking or taxes. Fuck them Fuck the people in Oak Park, Il who make your life miserable.
There was an issue with the mail and I loved that the mail person just did not want to throw the mail anywhere but at least left a note. A note regarding the situation although what I did read (I was looking over her shoulder as I was coming in from my lunch break) was very hilarious then my otherworldly neighbor came down (not the offender) and I had to stop lingering otherwise I would have made it obvious.
The note was basically stating to have all the names on the mailbox, I guess that pisses off all the mail people working in Oak Park, Il not just the ones in my old neighborhood I believe that the mail workers believe that everyone in Oak park, Il is a bunch of privileged assholes. When that is totally not true however if that is all you have been exposed to and the majority of my experiences with people in Oak Park, il has been negative as well so it is easy to see why these postal workers have such as shitty attitude towards residents doing whatever in regards to their mailboxes and postal expectations.
These postal workers are probably treated like “the help” or indentured servants without a second thought and the only way they know how to react is by giving tons of hostility towards everyone they come in contact with. That is why I give them a wide berth to do their job and interact with them like I have manners.
Just a professional courtesy that as a customer ensures that my mail is delivered on time, properly and correctly. Oak Park, Il is shitty enough than to just be pissing off those who are merely doing their job, do not live here, and handle important documentation that is essential for my daily activities and/or existence in this shitty little burb, hopefully, other people in Oak Park start thinking the same way.
I remember living in Forest Park, and in every village, town or city you need to buy their funky sticker. Well, this one time I remember I went online to pay for a sticker and waited for a long time. The thing about governments especially local ones is that these idiots have no idea to mesh technology with everyday activities or needs. Therefore, I had the sticker purchased and was simply waiting for the town of Forest incompetent Park to mail me the fucking thing.
Unfortunately, it takes the workers of Forest Park a long time to figure out this thing called the internet, email and all this electronic stuff. Mind you I was recorded in the system as purchasing the sticker in forest parks shitty little computers. So, when the due date came and went I was not worried because hey I purchased the sticker beforehand, I printed off a receipt of the purchase, and of course, anyone working for forest park can see that I did. Well. Not really, so the day came and went.
When I walked down into my apartment building’s private parking lot and low and behold a parking ticket. The ticket was for no sticker at 12:08 am therefore the cops were just patrolling looking for shit to do. Okay, I said to myself I will take off tomorrow and contest the ticket because hey obviously, the cop made a mistake and did not look into the system and see that I bought a sticker, no problem. Therefore, I did my due diligence and scheduled a day off when I got to work to contest the ticket, obviously just a mistake, that is easily solved right?
The next morning, you know the day I took off, was uneventful when I woke up, but when I went to the apartment building’s private parking lot to get in my car to drive down to the town hall, there was a ticket. This ticket was again for no sticker, now I’m pissed. This ticket was issued at 12:05 am, the ticket had the same badge number too. Obviously, this idiot was either getting his numbers for his quota, got a hard on issuing tickets or couldn’t find any midget porn to whack off too.
I grabbed that ticket and get down to fuckin Forest Park city hall to talk to these fucks. The attendant representative whatever behind the desk tells that the tickets were obviously written in error because the system showed I purchased the sticker the town simply had to mail it out. She went to the back to make sure and stated that BOTH tickets were invalid. I noticed a cop was walking back and forth in the background it was probably the same dude who wrote the ticket because he really was interested in what we said.
I asked the rep if it could have been checked in the system she stated that the officer should have checked and knew that the stickers were going out late. Also, she could not explain why I got back to back tickets on back to back days ten minutes after midnight each time. The only explanation after clearing the tickets off my record and dealing with this more than informative attendant I, therefore, came to the conclusion that I was dealing with a broken system in Forest Park and an asshole cop.
When the mail was delivered that afternoon, the sticker arrived, so I went ahead and placed the sticker in the window. Later on, I made an outline sketch of my hand with my middle finger extended and placed it in the window near the sticker. That cemented my decision to leave Forest Park, I really hope that cop enjoyed my drawing.
Okay, what the hell? So, I read a blog post bout another writer that I follow who stated in one of their posts “WordPress shut down” which left me wondering. Mainly because the blog is like academic and I read it to help me with my school projects, you know free tips and downloads stuff like that. I “pm” him (private message) on fb asking what he meant about that. And he responded that WordPress shut DOWN his blog because the stated the automatic filtering program decided he had infringed on the terms of service.
Being an academic blog it made me wonder why it would do that? But the answer he gave me when he asked the same question was that WordPress could not tell him what happened in detail and what he could do in the future to prevent it! Then told him to just post “original content to ensure that a similar block does not happen again in the future”
Hence my question is: if he got the blog back up and the filter made a mistake, then whose fault is it really? How can WordPress trust the filtering system if it is making mistakes this? Who would put money into establishing a WordPress site or blog if it can all get taken away from you by a faulty program? If I was in school this blog being down would screw with my world, so what if he was an affiliate with a highly successful blog, would Word Press compensate him for the money lost by the site shut down?
All this makes me glad that I am not only on Word press but Google/Blogger. This dude is too but has told me he will “dump” all the articles he has written onto a Wix or Weebly site too. To ensure that if WordPress gets crazy once again the blog “lives” on. I was thinking of the same thing just take all my writings and dump it all at once on a Wix or Weebly account to further piss off the masses.
In any case, this is just FYI for all of you that have an account with WordPress, back that shit up on a Microsoft Word or text document so all the work you do on the internet is not lost forever to a stupid ass computer program and pure laziness.
Now I am not left or right, just in the middle of all that politics shit. First, I did not like when people talk violent shit towards Obama and I did not agree with that dude on everything. I have the same standard for Trump even though I do not agree with him on everything either. So, when Ms. Griffith, an Oak Park, IL native came out with her little “stunt” with a beheaded man’s head that looked like Trump I simply pressed the “ignore” button again on this bitch, because it is simply classless and crass. Even though I can be both of those adjectives I do hold the line there in that type or any discourse.
However, when I saw crazy bitch on the news crying that the rest of the Trump’s family was talking shit towards her and that her career was effectively over I was like “No Shit what did she expect?” But she cried about her age and this “woe is me” shit then broke down even further when she heard her buddy Anderson Cooper said her photo shoot was “disgusting” I could only think “Yup she is from Oak Park, Il!”
Just like the lady who came up to me and asked if I could move my care from in front of her house, that to remind you I had a parking permit TO PARK there, nevertheless, her entitled ignorant ass shone through. As if she said nothing wrong and that she was entitled to say whatever she felt. With ignorance abound nowadays we are as Americans can say what the hell it is on our minds but to that extreme as with Ms. Griffith seems to be the average attitude of those in Oak Park, IL. Pissing off people they barely know and viciously in some self-absorbed manner! Then wonder why people fight back in the case of Trump or in the form of a blog like this one….
Here is an article talking about the crazy bitch crying and whatever…
I looked upon Oak Park as the gleaming city upon the hill when, unfortunately, after living there that image became tarnished. There is no shine to it anymore it has become a lackluster turd next to one of Chicago’s worse areas. That has been the victim of neglect, white flight, Corrupt racial politics (on both sides), economic disparities and no city\village planning whatsoever. It has over the years created an Environment that is a personal hell for some, as a personal oasis for others in where the privileged can practice their snootiness and raise their own fragile egos above the masses, and prove their intelligence to at least themselves.
Mind you I am waxing about, or reminiscing about all this in the gynos waiting room, which seems to be appertained when thinking about this village. I believe it is because like a vagina I live near an asshole or a bunch of them, and sometimes living in that area just stinks. Oh, and only when I get something in me, can I have fun while being there. Basically, yup oak park is a woman’s private area and takes about as much maintenance to deal with, either on a Daily or Monthly basis, there is always something that comes up or becomes a messy situation.
Now I lived in a couple or areas gold coast, Lakeview (boys town) before the yuppies took over, Forest park, Richton park to here. All of those times I moved it was because I needed to get closer to a job or specific cause, however Oak Park, il I moved to due to changes In the condo building I was renting in, so I jumped out of the frying pan and into fire, when I came to Oak Park, Il.
Although I bitch I will not take anything away from this experience of living here because it was a real eye opener, I mean shit what if I purchased a Condo here? I would be fucked, and honestly, I am glad the people of oak park, Il has shown their true colors and did so very quickly, it spared me the pain, headache, and bullshit that comes from owning property in Oak Park, Il and be stuck trying to unload it in a weird market.
So I am glad that Oak Park, Il has become that smelly pussy that cannot be overcome by no amount of liquor on a horny Friday night. It’s that type of cooch that one whiff and you want to run away, the least I can do is spare others the same fate as I.
I think I may have introduced a non-internet person to the blog I was getting my hair done, and I was talking to the stylist about where I live you know how that comes up in small talk at a hair salon. The stylist was like “Oh Oak Park nice!” and I had to stop her right there because I am not going to let anyone get hoodwinked by this shitty little village ever again.
I told her that even some of the residents hate it because of the crime and how the village is condensing these developments near downtown Oak Park. Being from Berwyn, IL she thought that the development was great although she would not go into the area because of the traffic. I immediately told her a lot of people in Oak Park, IL are feeling the same way, crushed by the construction, traffic and parking situation that faces people every day in Oak Park, IL.
I told her about the Old Lady on Harvey story that wanted me to move my car and she stated that “they have parking restrictions in Berwyn but it is not THAT bad!” yup. Of course, it is only that bad in Oak Park, IL a shitty little village trying to be a big city in its downtown without the infrastructure, planning or vision to carry this monumental feat off. I told her about the blog and some of the other stories that I still must write on here, and she told me she is good staying in Berwyn!
Hey, at least I got another converter or person steering clear of Oak Park, IL and all its craziness before it is too late and that is the main reason why, why I started this blog. Go elsewhere but here.
