Things to Worry About

Recurring Theme: Bad things happen when you pull over to the side of the road to take a leak, and that goes double for a tugboat captain who loses his balance tinkling over the side. Vancouver Sun

Belching has spent hundreds of pounds on medicine and possible cures So much for socialized medicine.

Family Business Yet another example of solid family values.

Business Plan 12 hours in the store and the employees got suspicious. Ya think?! 🙄

There's been a lot of stories from my home state of MA lately. I'm getting a bit worried.

uncontrollable belching
I don't get it. She's too embarrassed to go out because of the belching but she doesn't mind a newspaper article about her and her belching.

I rearrange stuff in stores all the time, well hide stuff...mainly toys that I am scoping out for my son. In stores with the metal type shelves you can lift the bottom most shelf and hide stuff in there. My wife went with me one time to go and get a present for my son and was disappointed that the store didn't have what we were looking for. I said no problem and lifted the bottom shelf and voila there it was along with some other stuff I stashed away for the next present. You should have seen her face.

Don't ever go into Victoria's Secret wearing lingerie. At least if you don't want to get arrested.

MNicelady - That comment was meant for men and yes I did mean only lingerie. Thanks for pointing out how lame my joke was.

family business: natural selection at work

tugboat: I bet he was drunk. I know whenever any men in my family get near a boat, they drink like frat boys in the F-state on spring break.

business: $25 bucks an hour in this economy? winner!
