Two more to add to the list.

One of these days I really should create a filter for Yahoo Messenger to simply ignore anyone whose first message to me contains the word ding.

What is so hard about an ice cream cone?

A few times over the summer I stopped by a McDonald's to get an ice cream cone and each time drive away disappointed in the persons cone making skills because I know that it is not that hard as I myself worked at a McDonald's restaurant for four years (96-00) and after some early struggling to figure out the art of it I quickly came to master it and is now a skill that I still retain.

Occasionally a group from my department will have lunch at the local Coyote Canyon which is a buffet style restaurant complete with a soft serve ice cream machine and from time to time I enjoy one of them and where each time my cone ends up being nearly perfect with a spiraling tower that is at least six inches tall... it would be taller except for that there is not enough room below the nozzle to get much higher.

More than once I have been completed on my cone making skills from both workers and passing customers and I've commented on where it came from.

That all being said... I cannot believe that so many McDonald's workers (including a few managers) today lack this very important job related skill.

Oh well... maybe I'm just getting old and bitter.

YANS: michwiliam

Today I added Yahoo user michwiliam to my list of Nigerian scammers.

It's a shame these scammers don't work together as they'd quickly add my name to the "Do Not IM" list.

Oh well.
