Midwest! FUCK YEAH!
(Not really retail, but still customer service) I live next to Lake Superior and I worked at a bar for a few years. Each summer I would get ppl asking me what we "did with the lake in the winter" and in the winter I would always get asked "what's that big white field out there why are there boats on it" or "so where's the lake???"

What happened in Dinkytown last night after the Gophers lost the National Championship?
This.
I’ve never seen anything quite so beautiful.
via Rand Ball’s Stu and Aschenncc.

Can stupid assholes stop rioting in Dinkytown now?  Seriously, I know I’m old and irrelevant, but these kids are making the case for their mothers to come down there and drag each and every one of them back to Waseca or Maple Plain by their over-privileged ears to learn their lesson about respecting people’s property and making good decisions.  My friends and I got drunk all the time in college and never once put a street sign through someone’s car windows. The cops aren’t fascists because they won’t let you lay down in the street to protest…fuck if I know what.  The rules aren’t that hard to follow, kids, and no one will call you stupid for following them.  We will call you stupid for getting arrested after mooning the cops.  Have fun explaining that misdemeanor exposure charge to the hiring manager at Target HQ, bro.
Oh, and get off my lawn.

On Friday night, Aaron had a seizure while driving home. Miraculously, nobody was hurt. We have no idea who called 911 or moved our car to safety and left this note in Aaron’s jacket pocket, but we sure are grateful for them and their Minnesota spirit. Hoping this post finds a way into their news feed so they know how thankful we are for their actions. You saved my husband and that is pretty damn rad.
Goddammit Minnesota, this is what we do, I love you guys.

Warms my cold, black heart, it does!
