deception is a nasty game

So I go to get breakfast yesterday, which I always bring food to work so it was kind of a special occasion. Well the two chubby kids at work were heading to Café Paradise so I figured I would tag along. I had never been to café Paradise but I figured if the two portly fellows eat there all the time so it has to be good.

Well as I walk in to the café I notice a blind lady (dark sunglasses and a walking stick) sitting beside the register, so I am ordering and then this happens.

Me: I will have a sausage and egg sandwich

Cashier: that will be 2 dollars, and I will bring it to you in a minute

Me” thanks

Blind lady: sir, could you hand me a menu

Me: sure, not seeing a menu other then the one on the wall, I just handed her a comment card that was sitting beside the cash register. Figuring she was blind any way.

Blind lady: This isn’t a menu

Me” whoops

Blind lady: this is a comment card, the menu’s are on the other side of the register.

I truly believe this lady was setting me up just to see how big a jerk I could be, and of course she won this round, but the next time I see her crossing the street with her dark glasses and walking stick, it is going to be on.

Joke of the Day....

Hillary Clinton called for President Bush to begin pulling troops out of Iraq next year. And let me tell you something, when it comes to telling a President when to pull out, no one has more experience than Hillary Clinton." --Jay Leno

Back in the Saddle

Sorry I have not given any advice lately. I was actually in Mexico trying to find a job. I figured, heck, they're all here so there must be some great jobs in Mexico. After many interviews and lots of tequila, I realized my home was back in the USA. I know that if we kick them out Cinco de Mayo will carry on. You must stop to think about the meaning of the day. I believe the government is going to implement a law that states, "any US citizen may rent a Mexican for a 24hour period on Cinco de Mayo." They will transport them back for that single day so we don't have to make our own margaritas and tacos. It will be a great day. If you read the fine print, you can also have them do construction for four hours of that time allotment. So if you need an apartment complex built or would like to have a tasty margarita,(or both) I say vote YES!!!!!!


What people will do to get out of work....

Recently in Waterloo, Iowa Police arrested two people accused of filing a fake obituary for teenager Dan "D.J." Reddout with a newspaper to get off work for a few days. Police arrested James Ralph Snyder, who is the boyfriend of Reddout's mother, and the boy's mother, Mary Jo Elizabeth Jensen, submitted a death notice to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier newspaper, saying that Jensen's 17-year-old son had died at the Mayo Clinic after a lengthy illness. They worked at Tyson Foods and wanted some time off but their plan failed when the teen was spotted at a restaurant.

Oh, what people will do to get off work for a day.....anyone out there got any good stories like this one so they could get a day off work besides calling in sick???

A day with out the Mexicans

Million man march on Columbia, I saw a 1989 Astro Van pull up on the corner of Main and Elmwood, and let out almost a million Mexicans to march to the capital today. The were caring signs say “we are Americans”, “who isn’t a immigrant”, and my favorite, “Who cleans your houses and Hotels.” After seeing this I was craving a burrito, so I decided to drive down to Monterey’s but realized they were all probably marching, but lucky Taco bell was still open. Got to love Taco Bell.
