Our can’t-miss “weather chit-chat” starts off the show this week. Nick wonders why cashiers aren’t saying hi to him, then Joel tells a story about a long lineup at the bank. This leads to talking about bad customer service from giant companies (like Air Canada) and how they don’t want to talk to anyone. Newfoundland has forgotten how much they dislike Paul Davis and the PC’s, so he’s leading in the polls now, but there’s not much of a choice. A new pizza chain opened here, a music venue closed, and someone wants to open a library in downtown St. John’s, although Joel thinks we should have a room full of computers and Kindles instead. The dead whale is finally gone from Outer Cove and Ravens are attacking a house, so we brainstorm ideas to get rid of them. Joel is in awe of the amazing pesticides and chemicals that are banned and shares some of his personal life after hearing a story about a prank where a guy ran nude through the Avalon Mall. We talk about growing up, following rules, school, teachers, and the early days of texting. Nick says Joel was lame years ago, and Joel things he’s compensating for it now by being a rebel. We end the show talking about Salmon Festival and the other moderately fun things to do during summer in Newfoundland.
