When I Say There’s Not

Much going on, I mean it. This has been one of the slowest weeks I’ve ever lived! I think the weather changing to cold has had something to do with it. Been raining a bit.

Matt, a friend of mine, and I went up to the property last Tuesday and cut up some wood for him.

SWMBO and her brother, Robert, went to Seattle and walked around today. I met them at the Panda Palance or something and we had Mongolian for dinner. Was good. They were tired so we didn’t make out usual stop at Albertson’s tonight. We did walk through the Fred Meyers and I bought a DVD of Dirty Jobs. Kind of listening to/watching it now. Cool show.

Been ’playing’ "Lock On"; a jet simulator. So far I’ve crashed a dozen times. Have shot down a lot of enemy planes too. Think I’ll continue that now…

They Walk Among Us!

#1: I was at the checkout of a K-Mart. The clerk rang up $46.64 charge. I gave her a fifty dollar bill. She gave me back $46.64. I gave it back to her and told her that she had made a mistake in MY favor and gave her the money back. She became indignant and informed me she was a University of SC graduate (big clue there) and knew what she was doing, and returned the money again. I gave her the money back again…same scenario! I departed the store with the $46.64. This actually happened to me in Austin at MoPac Blvd and Parmer Lane .

#2: I walked into a Mickey D’s with a buy -one-get-one-free coupon for a sandwich. I handed it to the girl and she looked over at a little chalkboard that said “buy one-get-one free.” “They’re already buy-one-get-one-free”, she said, “so I guess they’re both free” She handed me my free sandwiches and I walked out the door.

#3: One day I was walking down the beach with some friends when one of them shouted, “Look at that dead bird!” Someone looked up at the sky and said, “Where?”

#4: While looking at a house, my brother asked the real estate agent which direction was north because, he explained, he didn’t want the sun waking him up every morning. She asked, “Does the sun rise in the north?” When my brother explained that the sun rises in the east, and has for sometime, she shook her head and said, “Oh I don’t keep up with that stuff.”

…………..They Walk Among Us and sell houses!!

#5: I used to work in technical support for a 24/7 call center. One day I got a call from an individual who asked what hours the call enter was open. I told him, “The number you dialed is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.” He responded, “Is that Eastern or Pacific time? Wanting to end the call quickly, I said, “Uh, Pacific.”

#6: My sister has a lifesaving tool in her car designed to cut through a seat belt if she gets trapped. She keeps it in the trunk.

#7: I couldn’t find my luggage at the airport baggage area, so I went to the lost luggage office and told the woman there that my bags never showed up. She smiled and told me not to worry because she was a trained professional and I was in good hands. “Now,” she asked me, “has your plane arrived yet?”

…………..They Walk Among Us and propose to give us direction!

#8: While working at a pizza parlor I observed a man ordering a small pizza to go. He appeared to be alone and the cook asked him if he would like it cut into 4 pieces or 6. He thought abo it for some time before responding. “Just cut it into 4 pieces; I don’t think I’m hungry enough to eat 6 pieces.”

……………Yep, They Walk Among Us and keep up the CPI!

They Walk Among Us, they reproduce, and WORST OF All…………they VOTE Democrat! (or however Oprah tells them they should vote!)
