I know it's bad LOL

Thursday, March 31, 2011


A man was dining alone in a fancy restaurant and there was a gorgeous redhead
sitting at the next table..He had been checking her out since he sat down, but
lacked the nerve to talk with her.

Suddenly she sneezed, and her glass eye came flying out of its socket towards
the man. He reflexively reached out, grabbed it out of the air, and handed it
back.

'Oh my, I am so sorry,' the woman said, as she popped her eye back in place.
'Let me buy your dinner to make it up to you.'

They enjoyed a wonderful dinner together, and afterwards they went to the
theatre followed by drinks... They talked, they laughed, she shared her deepest
dreams and he shared his. She listened to him with interest.

After paying for everything, she asked him if he would like to come to her place
for a nightcap and stay for breakfast. They had a wonderful, wonderful time.

The next morning, she cooked a gourmet meal with all the trimmings. The guy was
amazed. Everything had been so incredible!

'You know,' he said, 'you are the perfect woman.. Are you this nice to every guy
you meet?'

'No,' she replies. . ..





Wait for it ... ....





It's coming ..... ....




The suspense is killing you, isn't it?






She said ... ...:

'You just happened to catch my eye.'

(Oh shut up, and just forward it!)

To my mature friends (well the old ones anyway!!)

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Two elderly women were eating breakfast in a restaurant one morning. Ethel noticed something funny about Mabel's ear and she said, ''Mabel, do you know you've got a suppository in your left ear?' Mabel answered, 'I have a suppository in my ear?' She pulled it out and stared at it.
Then she said, 'Ethel, I'm glad you saw this thing.. Now I think I know where to find my hearing aid.'

Duvet dumbo

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

So it's getting warmer and we needed a new summer weight 4.5 tog duvet.
I'm not sleeping well cos of the situation re FIL but being hot and sweaty too is not making rest any easier!

Off to Sainsbury's yesterday, bedding section and every tog available for every size except the one I wanted for a king size bed.
I called over a young assistant and asked if he had any in the warehouse.

Aren't there any on the shelves?
No, if there were I wouldn't be asking.
Let's go see together (ok keep your cool I'm thinking I might have missed one after all)
Ah! looks like we don't have any on display
That's what I said emoticon

He then looked on the side of a winter weight duvet and confused the tog weights with those of bed sizes
ie 4.5 tog single bed
10.5 tog double bed
13.5 tog king size bed.

and then told me he only did 4.5 in a single AAAARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHH

I tried for 5 LONG minutes to penetrate the single cell that could be called his brain and gave up emoticon emoticon

As I walked away it occurred to me that I might have been projecting my fury at the wrong person. After all he was young and his mum probably bought his bedding for him (and still washed behind his ears emoticon).
It was the management's fault for not training bedding staff in all that needs to be known for good customer service.

That instantly calmed me down!
Pre sparking, the old me, I would have fumed for hours, instead I calmly mentioned to customer service what had transpired and that it might be a good idea to get some lighter tog weight duvets out now spring is here and summer (hopefully) on the way.

Last evening coming home from the hospital from visiting FIL we popped into a Tesco on route. I wasn't in the mood to go walk up and down aisles only to NOT find what I wanted. Their customer service lad walked me to the duvet aisle and pulled out exactly what I wanted........
will this do madam emoticon emoticon

YES THANK YOU emoticon

Now that's more like it!!!!!!!! emoticon emoticon

Sainsbury's! take note emoticon

"What kind of powder? Is that a drink?"

    Check this one out:

Recently, when
I went to McDonald's I saw on the menu that you
could have an order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken
McNuggets.

I asked for a half dozen nuggets.

'We don't have half dozen nuggets,' said the
teenager at the counter.

'You don't?' I
replied.

'We only have six, nine, or
twelve,' was the reply.

'So I can't order a
half dozen nuggets, but I can order six?'


'That's right.'

So I shook my head and
ordered six McNuggets

(Unbelievable but
sadly true...)
(must have been the same one I asked for sweetener and she said they didn't have any, only splenda and sugar.)
