The Boundless Sorrow of the Parking Lot Mayor

"My mayorships have been whittled away to meaningless 7-Elevens and gas stations."
-Maybe I'm a little chemically "off" today but for some reason that strikes me as the most melancholy, maybe even heart-breaking thing I've heard in a while. And it's about fucking Foursquare!

WHEN I USED TO GO OUT I WOULD NO EVERYONE THAT I SAW NOW I GO OUT ALONE IF I GO OUT AT ALL

You can read the 'NO' as intentional, if you'd like.

I'm the mayor of a bodega and a youth hostel. And my old apartment.

I'm the King of Wishful Thinking.

If only this guy would refuse to give in to his blues.

OFF TO YOUTUBE I GO!

On facebook last night I noticed that an acquaintance of mine had a post on his wall checking in while on a date.

WHAT? I am not good with the ladies…Maybe because I don't understand them. If I was on a date with a guy who needed to "check in" during our date I'd shove his phone up his ass…and because I believe in no small gestures, I'd then cut his balls off.

That's just me though.

How is it possible that Stabber Alley is on this side of the Atlantic?

That name has not been put to the test.

It looks more dangerous than it is.

Kinda disappointed there aren't other posts tagged with "So Ronery."

Ahem!: "The best part about being the mayor is the fact you're the mayor." This is EXACTLY the kind of round robin weak logic that can get a boy in trouble.

So is this what young people do now instead of having fun?

Good to know.

They also have their digital drugs.

Yeah, I think "most" = "off."

Also, I think the assertion that 7-Elevens and parking lots lack meaning is being rather placeist.

articles like this make me think ""if my nana read this, she would have absolutely no idea what the article was about." she would recognize the words, but the story would be incomprehensible.

This is a very servicey article for us olds who don't get foursquare, but were afraid to ask about it for fear of being exposed as an old.

Now that I know…meh.

I did know what it was, basically, and I still don't get it.

On at least half a dozen occasions, I've clicked on some link that mentioned foursquare hoping to read about the beloved playground game, and instead was greeted with the latest social media wankery. I'm a millenial, and I still think this is lame.

Agree BoD. So many hours spent either playing foursquare or searching for chalk

"And," he added, "it's fun!"

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
