View Full Version : OT: Hoax Warning

Normally these warnings are not worth bothering about. But this one is different. It should be passed on to all your friends. .

Subject: Hoax Warning

I usually take these those hoax warnings, but this one my wife received from a friend is IMPORTANT! Please send this warning to everyone on your email list.

If someone comes to your front door saying they are conducting a survey and asks you to take your clothes off, do not do it!!! This is a scam; they only want to see you naked. I wish I'd gotten this yesterday. I feel so stupid and cheap now....

A little to much time on your hands today?

thanks lynnl. I needed a smile today. I've just come back from the metal man today and he wanted 30 bucks for a 14" piece of tubing. So I said I only could afford half of that, like $15 worth. So he cut it in half and then said "including taxes, that comes to $20." Arrrrrrgh. As I said, I needed a smile

Where were you guys yesterday!!! Engeneering foulups, I couldn't find my (nearly)one of a kind 11/32" 24 inch Starett shrink rule which is the actual size we use and which I got off e-bay for a song even though it was NIB because it is a special order/run from Starett and is probably the only one of its kind on the west coast and the whole shop looked for it with no luck untill just at quitting time, 45 minuets to change the disk on the sander because I can only get it to come off in little bits and It should have only taken 5!!!!! But could you be funny yeaserday when I needed it? NOOoooo. >:P~

But I'll have to remember the breath-alizer

Better late than never

I know what you mean. I got fined by the furniture tag inspector. Pop inspection. He got me on my pillows. I forgot and had cut the tags off all of them. $100 a tag for 8 pillows. I'm lucky, I guess. I talked him down to $600. It was all I had on me.

Got you for tags and registration, eh....

I cut them off but put them in the drawer beside the bed. That way if I get told to slow down for driving too fast I can reach over and get them right beside the... Ahh, I better quit.

Recieved this today from a friend(?)
Raise right leg slightly, rotate foot in a
clockwise direction.
Now trace the number 6 in the air w/right hand, watch foot change direction.
Undoubtably too much free time.

"watch foot change direction"...indeed

I can't get more than about a half dozen full clockwise rotaions before the pent up energy in my leg becomes overpowering and spins my foot back the other way - like the prop on an elastic powered toy airplane.
