Dear Asshole: You Will Not Ruin My Dinner Too

Dear Asshole,

Do not make me and my people look like the idiots and have us re-do our work 2,3,4 times just because you were too stupid to communicate your business directives to your own people. You are a fuck-face and I hate you for it.

OK, I feel much better now that that's off my chest. On days like today, when all that comes out of your mouth are fightin' words, cheap, easy, and tasty dinners are key. Which is why tonight, I stopped by Koreatown on the way home and picked me up some pre-made jap-chae from California Market. Yeah, it's not as good as home- or even restaurant-made (nothing can compare to my ex-roommate's mom's jap-chae) but it does the trick. For a little over 3 bucks, you get a good sized clear container full of sesame and garlic-infused clear yam noodles, bell pepper, carrot, spinach and shitake mushroom. Heat it up quickly in a pan and you've got yourself a tasty, no-fuss dinner for two. Korean markets such as California Market always have other quick pick-up foods available for not-so-pleasant days: mixed vegetables, beef, and sauce for bibim bap, pre-marinated meat for bulgogi or galbi, a variety of Korean pancakes, and loads more.

Look, now because of all the time and grief that I saved myself after that simple and delicious meal from California Market, I have all this free time to stew about other stuff. Like that ass-clown at work. Fucker.

I have been gobbling up these noodles all of last week like they are going out of style! I got my parents hooked too! We must be on the same wavelength!
