    I guess I'll have to reschedule my One-to-One appointment.

    First in line for iPhone 5s?

    Please, caption this better than me. I've been working all weekend and I'm beat.

    I've sat at that table many times for various workshops. At least the driver took out that video display. They always had problems with it during the workshops. Hopefully the new one works better.

    It's a wonder why so many stores still don't have those concrete pillar guards in front to prevent this sort of thing.

    It's not his fault. He was driving a Lincoln and its called Lincoln Park. That's where you park your Lincoln.

    "Well how was I supposed to know there was a store there?! Back in my day walls were made of brick, not glass!"

    It's a sad time we live in when it's easier for the elderly to get a car than to get the help they so desperately need.

    Maybe he knew those tables were part of the One to One training area and he had a grudge against it and felt like driving into it. Sounds daft but that's just my opinion :p Oh well, at least the One to One members can go somewhere else or maybe even have lives for a change :D
