Huh?

Like a magnet, WWD! sometimes, well, is right up in your face. At Pearl City Sam's Club, it wasn't more evident than dis.......









It literally said, "What's Up" and I had to fight da urge to Sharpie in 'Wit Dat!'. lol :lol:

But da funniest thing, in case your WWD! spidey-sense didn't pick it up, was da sign next to it:

"Use Elevator or Stairs"

Not dat da da two huge cones didn't already indicate but uh, isn't da elevator under repair...... so why would you want us to use it?

Wassup Wit Dat! :lol:

I was so perplexed dat someone would make a sign to use something das obviously not in use. Usually you'd just see a sign like "Elevator under repair - please use the stairs" or to say wea da next available elevator is located but to 'indicate' to use da broken elevator? Dat was funny.

In case you've nevah been to dis Sam's, dis elevator is by its lonesome self and da next working elevator is about fifty yards away.

It's surprising dat no one noticed it or wanted to make da signage more clear but then again, we're common sense people right? Well, until you see someone press da button and wondah how come da elevator is taking so long. :lol: :lol:

Once I see dat, I'll have my camera ready. :grin:

Deter Dis

June 1st, 2015
By

Wen it comes to our ride - especially a new or bling-ed out one - you tend to go through some extraordinary measures to keep it cherry..... or from being stolen.

One of da first things you put on is an aftah market alarm. While da stock factory alarm does its job, for a little more peace of mind you spring for da 'good stuff' especially for those who's parts cost way more than da whole vehicle itself.

We all know wat those are. Da weeeeee-ahhhhhh weeee-ahhhhh, bonk bonk bonk bonk bonk, wooooo-heeeee wooooo-heeee, bak bak bak bak, dop-beep-bup-beep going off every five seconds wen you fut too close 'turn dat $h!t off' alarms.

When it's yours, you care a great deal wen it goes off but wen it's not yours it becomes more of a nuisance rather than a deterrent - but I guess das a good thing right? Wen you all irked, you'd at least look but how many of us have watched with da foresight dat someone is breaking in?

We've all been told dat if you make it harder for a criminal, they'll tend to pick anoddah 'easier' target to avoid all da hassle but we all know if they really want it, they'll take it no mattah wat kine deterrent you flash.

But wat about........ laughter?

We took da rugrats to a 'secret' beach in Kailua da oddah week and wen we was packing up, had dis nice looking van parked across da street from us.









I nevah tink nothing of it oddah than it was going to need a good wash for da salt latah but something caught my eye and I had to do a discount double check. Next thing you know, I stay buss out laughing and saying........

Wassup Wit Dat!









If you nevah notice yet, check out da really bling-ed out thick chromed chain link securing da sliding door to da drivah side with a huge pad lock!

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I nevah check to see if had on da oddah side but dat'll definitely keep me from trying to steal your ride cause I wouldn't be able to stop laughing. I swear, it nevah ceases to amaze me dat you tink you've seen it all and then something like dis shows up.

There's totally nothing wrong with it but it's just out of da ordinary and wat a bettah way to start of your Mumblin' Monday with at least a chuckle.

Hmmm, wat if da padlock had an alarm too? Now with dat, I'd be on da floor!








Baggage Grindz

May 28th, 2015

Once da airline industry started to go 'à la carte', it was only a mattah of time dat da rest of da world started to follow suit..... all da way down to our everyday happenings.

Da billions dat da airlines have raked in from da baggage, food, headphones and even blanket/pillow 'extras', tapped into an unknown revenue source so any business would naturally follow suit seeing how nothing is inclusive anymore.

In Hawai'i, we all enjoy onolicious grindz - fast food or homemade - and with dat, we get certain side action 'needs' determined by da grindz you are eating:

Jack-In-Da-Box - gotta get da buttermilk dressing.
Arby's - gotta get da horsey sauce.
Pizza Hut - gotta eat da crust with ranch dressing.
Rainbow's Drive-In - gotta get gravy ALL (yes, including da mac salad of course!)
Mitsu-Ken - extra garlic sauce to cover da rice
Sushi (any kine) - GOTTA have wasabi and (my preference) KIKOMAN. :grin:

Wat about french fries? You gotta have ketchup right?

Ask yourself dis. You see a plate lunch full of fries and normally da first thing you look for is da ketchup right? Well for me its da sriracha but you tink dat itty bitty paper dipping cup is enough for dat ENTIRE plate?

So naturally our friend asked for a few more cups and was told each cup would be.....

Wassup Wit Dat!

EACH cup costs fifty cents! Really? Really??

Wen you dine out plate lunch kine, there's something about paying 'extra' dat always makes you do a no discount double check. It's not like you asking for an extra side or an extra plate wea you would naturally assume to pay for da cost but for a condiment das like on EVERY table wen you dine out? You $h!tt!n me right?

I was totally trippin' out. FIFTY CENTS for dat puny cup of ketchup and they nevah even bat an eye. You know how much da fries were? Almost $5. No ask for watah either, they charge you for da full price of a soda unlike oddah places wea you might pay for just da cup. :shock:

Unrealz.

I guess it really shouldn't be a surprise as Jack's charges you for their buttermilk (but if you ask at da window instead of wen ordering, most times they give it free :wink: :wink: ), Pizza Hut charges for their sauces but at least they come in 'pretty' packages and more too. I'm surprised dat Rainbow's charges you for gravy all (da ONLY place I've evah been dat charged for gravy).

Wea else has condiments or 'extras' come at à la carte prices besides da kine fancy shmancy places? Wat oddah kine 'extra' you like on your food and wea? I like da kine extra green onions on my spicy ahi and ask for a small bowl on da side (no charge). :lol: You tink it's pupule to charge for condiments?

btw, we asked for three chopsticks and guess wat?

Was free.

LMAO! :lol: WWD! :lol:








True Meaning

May 26th, 2015

As time evolves, things are/get diluted - there's really no way around dat.

Things once overly sensitive have become desensitized, things hardly spoken are now used as punch lines and things dat are normally not asked for are now taken advantage of.

Yesterday was Memorial Day. Yes, M-E-M-O-R-I-A-L Day. Just da word alone would make you tink about it. We all memorialize our lost ones, our beloved ones and even those dat we've witness pass but do you truly know wat Memorial Day is for?

I've always thought it was for our military veterans who gave their ultimate sacrifice and paid with their lives. They fought and died so dat we all can live bettah lives and breathe - and take advantage of - freedom.

Wen has dis 'holiday' been turning - turned into - memorializing ANYONE who has passed?

Wassup Wit Dat!

You not only dishonor our military but now you make it about YOU. It's not about YOU, it's about THEM. Those who lay beneath da very soil we walk on top of and those who have nevah made it home still lying in foreign soil nevah to be found. Those who are forevah trapped just a yardstick away from da surface of da watahs in Pearl Harbor.

No get me wrong, dis is a holiday we all enjoy cause it's a day off but don't turn it into 'memorializing' your passed (if they are not military) as it just isn't pono - there are 350+ some odd days to do dat. We all enjoy da time off with a beach bbq or spending time with ohana but please don't dilute dis holiday even though you may not be personally connected to any military person(s). Our servicemen and women deserve more than dat since they are on duty 24/7/365.

I not saying you no can visit grave but there's a difference when you make da day about you vs paying tribute to our fallen military. Just to be clear, I do not have any ohana dat I know of dat has served or know of any military personnel personally. I just feel they deserve a little more respect especially on Memorial Day.

RIP and God Speed.
