Douche Cologne/Ten things I hate about U-haul

Before we delve deeper into the brotherhood of the traveling douche, I
would like to proclaim that I hate U-haul. And no, it’s not just some
trivial dislike of mine blown out of proportion due to a fit of
frivolity. Nay, kind reader. I repeat: nay.

many years of hijinx ($19.95 vans turning into $369.82 vans, pick up
locations in Chilliwack, drop off locations in hell, etc), the shit
teeth collective at U-haul command-control-centre (perhaps located in
U-tah?) sent my sister and I to an abandoned, boarded up building in
the middle of Nowheresville, Vancouver Island to pick up a truck.

Here’s a surprise: there was no truck there.


another surprise: Client Relations Manager “Zariak” (no surname, which
means he more akin to Jesus and Cher, than mere mortals like you and I)
told me a real zinger on the phone after I called 1-800-NO-BALLS. He
told me, “There’s nothing I can do for you.”

Well, “Zariak”, why the fuck do you have a job then?

“There’s nothing I can do for you” is something I would expect from:

1) Celine Dion (who also has no balls)

2) Lamb-Chop (who has neither balls nor a spine)

3) Bad jokes about spousal abuse (which take balls and often involve not the fun kind, but that other kind of beating)

I won’t get into the other things I hate about U-haul (the name, the
hyphen in the name, the shorthand convenience of the name, the font,
its u-move monopoly here in Canada, the vehicle checks, the orange
everything…you get the idea)

Okay so I did get into it, but here’s the real blog for today:

You may have noticed the resurgence of douchebag in popular culture. Sure, when John Mayer wears a douchebag shirt,
it’s whimsical and poignant and delightful in all the ways it should
be. However, when you actually meet a douchebag, they are none of these
