    One thing that kind of drives me crazy is being called "sir". That is the one thing that makes me feel old. When I'm called "sir" my standard response is "Don't call me sir. I pretend to work for a living." which usually gets a laugh.
    I had that turned around on me about a month or so ago. I was making a delivery to a Golden Corral and their kitchen area is very tight. There were two ladies standing in front of me and I said "Excuse me, senora." I heard some talking in Spanish and then I was informed that she was a senorita and not a senora. She did this with her hands on her hips and then she turned and walked away. I felt like a fucking idiot. Heh.
    Oops.

    I wish we were allowed to bitch slap people on the job, not that I would want to do it often. Maybe just every once in a while, like 3 times a day.

    She doesn't get it.

    Basically if Kraft wants to sell Vegemite to Muslims, it needs to be able to tell them that it is halal. Nothing has changed in the Vegemite making process, but they pay someone to certify it and place a logo on the packaging. The cost of doing this is totally absorbed by the increased sales through opening themselves up to a huge new market. And by huge new market, I refer to the ability to export to Indonesia and the Middle East, which is a pool of over a billion consumers.

    They probably write-off this fee entirely and the end consumer pays nothing. The ONLY thing we should worry about is whether the slaughter of animals is compatible with our laws and values for humane processing. As I understand it, it is.

    And she also says that some companies conceal their halal certification, as if Muslims are somehow able to know what they can buy and non-Muslims are not told this secret. Well duh.

    Fox News (and with the DirectTV dispute, their ratings are apparently dropping horribly)
