OCD Undiagnosed

I find that when I'm driving through town, I avoid all manholes.  This, of course, is not that easy to do.  I know that one of these days I will probably be stopped for driving erratically.  And I won't be able to fault the cop that pulls me over, because swerving to avoid manholes IS driving erratically.  Another way my (undiagnosed) borderline OCD rears its ugly head.

And They Don't Understand The Hate...

(I have been MIA for quite a bit here.  I am planning on an update post, but this has been rattling around in my head, so I will do this first.)

Last weekend in our part of the world, we had two tragic deaths.  First, a 53-year-old man lost his life in a fire and then a 51-year-old man died as the result of an ATV accident.  Very sad, indeed.

Our local TV station has a morning program which I follow on Twitter.  On Monday morning, the following tweets were posted:

1) "2 sad events from the weekend. First, a fatal fire."

2) "...and a fatal ATV crash."

And then they had the links to the stories.

That was fine and dandy--they did just what you would expect from a news show.

After a little while, the 'tweeter' put this tweet up:

"Someone asked me to mention that there were 3 sad things this weekend...the Packers lost."

EXCUSE ME!?!?!?!?!?  You are equating a loss in a FOOTBALL game to the tragic deaths of two people???

And Packer fans wonder why they are universally hated?

***I must say that I DO know some nice people who happen to be Packer fans.  I excuse their douchiness. However, the majority of Packer fans I know are all kinds of disgusting.  And that's why the hatred from me.  ;)***
