Mr. Dump called me from Aubachon Hardware (on Rt 12/North Main Street) to tell me that fire engines from 4 different communities appeared to be dealing with something near the Fitchburg line. Like near the MART garage. There was no smoke, but there were fire engines and ambulances.
There is no way on the planet to find out what is going on in a timely manner unless it’s some sort of MAJOR happening that gets picked up by the news wires. Nothing on the Telegram or Sentinel (no duh) websites either. Now for the latter, even if they had a reporter helping to put out a fire, it wouldn’t make their website until tomorrow afternoon. It really isn’t reporting “news,” it’s reporting “olds”.
Anyhoo, apparently there were lots of trucks and at least one was from Devens. That is some serious mutual aid if they’re sending fire trucks from Devens. And yet, I know nothing. He didn’t go near it, he had to go home and put the new spool of string on the trimmer. They discontinued our trimmer, doncha know. And Amazon said it could take one to four weeks to ship a replacement pack to us. Holy jungle cruise, Batman! In 4 weeks we won’t be able to locate the dog if he stands near the fence!
So these are my two complaints of the day:
- I want every single piece of information that might impact me in any way to be instantly available on the Internet. Every day, all day.
- Aubachon Hardware – why the hell have you allowed squatters to own your domain? What the hell?! They cannot possibly have a claim to [DON’T CLICK IT!] aubachonhardware.com. Geez, what a stupid move! How the hell are people supposed to find you if they cannot type in the most logical domain name? That’s it, I’m having Mr. Dump call them to yell at them.
