This one makes me all three things in the subject title.

Leaving work today I noticed a black plastic bag on the grass of the parking lot. 

I looked into it, gave it a kick and something seemed odd.  That's when I saw the paw.   Yup, someone had put their (presumably dead) dog in a plastic bag and dumped it in the parking lot of the hospital.  WTF?

WHAT THE ACTUAL FRAK?!?!?!?

Thatís awful tortoise. Donít know if I should ask, what did you do with it? Call authorities?
Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction, and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.

I notified security, not sure what they did with it.

I got that job offer in Germany, great !

They're not willing to help much with the actual move. No help with the work visa. I realised today I need to buy/prove German health insurance on my before I apply for my visa..........and that visa appointment is in a week. Normally the company employs a firm to handle these things, but the other side simply said "Oh, it's not an ex-pat contract and the visa is your own private matter, so we can't help with that in this case"

Typical German attitude.

Cayenne battery is also under driver's seat.
In my old Audi 5k it was under the back seat.

The battery in my 1986 WV Westy was under the passenger seat.  It was a pain to access.

Our old notchback was the same. The added bonus was a really heavy person could short it out against the bottom of the seat

LOL @ FGC... :rofl:

So, mine today.............fack.  Wife is wrapping remaining gifts from yesterdays purchases. "Where's the AE bag?"
AE bag?
"Yeah, remember, when you guys got out of the movie, it was the only bag I had, and I gave it to you?"

Oh farcksicles. Gone through the garage, cars, truck, basement, bathroom, bedrooms, cat litter...you name it, high and low.  Can't find this bag for nothing.  $100+ in purchases.  The only thing that makes sense is we were sitting on the empty kiosk while my wife was in BENCH and when she came out I took the bag from her...and must've left the AE bag on the kiosk, and walked away.  You might think one of my kids might have seen it...gotta throw blame where I can, right?  But they're about as oblivious as their mother...and what better way to turn 50 than to totally lose your fecking brain, and walk away from $100 worth of gifts.  Good thing is she has the receipt.  Good thing is the girl at AE said she could come in and get everything for the same prices again.  Crap thing it I cost us $250+/- thanks to a brain fart. I mean WTF was I thinking?  >:( :banghead:

On the plus side, she probably won't take you shopping again.  I'd say that's $250 well spent.
