Mello - hates you

(no subject)

Dear IHOP Server,

When your customer is having a horrible coughing fit after having accidentally inhaled toast crumbs, and you worriedly ask if she wants more water and she weakly nods yes, please do not take her current half-full glass of water to refill. It is OK to go get a new glass. You did indeed hurriedly refill it and bring it back faster than any IHOP server I've had before, but those were still thirty seconds that I could have used that half-glass of water.

No love,

Doorbell!

Picked up the keys and did the "inspection of the house, noting all the damage" thing today. Took a ton of photos. Batch-processed and uploaded them but I'm NOT posting them tonight, as the A/C wasn't working in the house (we called the property managers, they're sending someone out tomorrow morning) and it was BOILING HOT in there and gave me a migraine (well, more like brought back the one I vanquished this morning).

But I am posting this very very short video, featuring the highly amusing (to me, at least) sound of our new doorbell:
