Oh man... *that* was hilarious. And before my time here... *just* before my time, only by a few months. Click on the OP's handle and check out his other posts... those are *all* hilarious. Did you see the one about demanding respect? Should have posted *that* to the recent thread about forming a union that caused so much controversy.
ETA: Oh hey, look at that... I was still reading and composing my post and when I was all done, StillLearning posted the link to the 'Demanding Respect' one. All the 'mofo's were one of the best things.
Happiness is merely life's way of keeping you off-balance.

If you read any of the posts following Peter's, isn't it amazing how many folks thought that his post was for real? I couldn't imagine the world's biggest buffoon doing what he described in his hilarious post.
My idea of an agreeable person is a person who agrees with me.
Totally highjacked thread but the funniest thing my 91 yo Mom said was one day she starts yelling "Someone is getting a hummer in our back yard".
Well I am from the 80's and thought there was a pervert in our back yard. No it was 2 hummingbirds. I told my mother gently not to call them hummers anymore and we had a good laugh.
I don't know about anyone else, but I almost killed myself trying to wear those Dr. Scholl sandals. I keep turning my ankle, walking out of them and after falling down in several times. I gave them to my sisters girls, and told them "Good LUCK"! Guess it is just me, they are alive and trying catch up with me!
Now that I am a young 73, I have to wear "Good Support Shoes" my foot doctor words. You ever try finding half-way good looking shoes that has arch supports, even most of the athletic shoes do not have them. I have Arthritis in my feet, have to get shots every few months in my foot, but much improved since I lost my full time job. Try dressing up and wear Good Support Shoes, I would rather go to a movie and wear my good old jeans!
The person that came up with the frase of "GOLDEN YEARS" had to be some young squart!!!! I'm really doing great at my young age, two knee replaced, three shoulder repairs, doctor said last year I would have to have that shoulder repaired! Ha Ha it is still working, at least mostly.
Oh YES, I needed to get on here this morning. This is the first time on this section. Oh, it remines me of so many things as I was growing up.
When I was still in High School my Mom had to go to W. Va. to care for my grandpa, an while she was gone I had to do all of her work. We lived in an old farm house and it had a Michigan basement (field stone cemented together for the walls and dirt floor. Luckly one are had a cement floor where we had the ringer washing machine (oh yes, it was electric, thank God). I was doing the washing and Dad was down adjusting the old wood furance (it was about 5' wide and round) burned coal or wood, we burned wood, Yea, we had to go out and cut it with a cross cut saw, then hall it back and dump it in the coal been throw a window. Anyway, I was doing the washen, and we heard someone come in the back door of the porch, and he had yelled "we are down here", as I was ringing the whites, Dad said why are my shorts PINK?
I looked up, and saw my boyfriend at the foot of the stairs, and he burst out laughing. I had accidently gotten something red in the load, and ended up with the load of whites now all the nicest shade of PINK.
> An oldie and a real hoot. Gotta get that business
> card, no?
I lost a business card once and I had to cross the street to look for it. Low and behold, it was on the ground and it was being blown by the wind...
Anyway, that is not why I am posting. I found some humour in what happened to me while depositing a refund from an upscale store I mshopped yesterday and I want to share my episode of 'senility." But at that time I was just too frustrated and stressed.
I placed the bills in a deposit envelope. While I was about to insert my card, I noticed a whole bunch of envelopes around the counter and so many slips of paper on the floor. I don't know what got into me to decide to clean up before I proceeded with the transaction. Then I decided to place all the envelopes in their proper places and not all over the counter. Believe me, it wasn't easy.
So, I was now inserting my card. But where is it? I asked myself several times. I lost the money! I decided to take out all the envelopes, and I scraped my right hand in the process. So I decided to use my left hand. A man came with his bicycle. He asked me what was happening. When I told him, he said, "I will help." His hands were bigger than mine so he couldn't take them out easily. We eventually checked each out. He said, they were all empty. He looked around and told me to lift my left foot. "There it is!" he said. I was so grateful, I told him to go ahead and use the machine.
I was almost late for the next shop because I returned all the envelopes in their proper place.
I have some Earth shoes because I have plantar fasciitis--but they look "normal", nothing like they used to thank goodness! Also some birkenstocks,which unfortunately haven't improved much in the style department (sigh).
Everyone knows you do not go to Sonic for the food. You go for the entertainment. You want to see cars pile up at Nascar races and you want to see the server hit a bump and wipe out with a full tray of goodies at Sonic and the Root beer drive in..
