Today I brought the snakes and lizards with me to get fed. I spoke with the dealer who asked me to bring in the car for service that he hadn't been able to finish earlier this week.

I figured it would be warm enough with for the snakes, and I left them in the front seat, in their travel box. Told the service manager this, who casually told his repair chief AFTER he had the car up on the rack. The lizards I took to work, and had at my desk.

Now, may I remind all, that NONE of the reptiles said ANYTHING vaguely offensive, or talked back; UNLIKE the youngest teenager, who I'm certain has PMS (which is somewhat odd as he is male).

QUEENCATHR, I hear you! My kids are both grown now (and it gets so much better!) but my daughter was effectively a teen at age 4. She had personality and a mind of her own the mind she escaped the womb, and may I tell you that her actual teen years were not the favorite times of my life. Of course, a lot of that had to do with her father who is now deceased and I won't speak ill of the dead.......

My son was much easier. They are both phenomenal people now, in their 20s so the pain was worth it.

emoticon Nightwings, at least your kids waited until they were teens to back talk. My eight year olds are world champs and my 3 year old daughter informed me on Sunday that I didn't have to yell at her and no she was not going to do what I said. I won't mention my response ;~)

Is this the part where I confess that the NON-human contingent numbers 14? Between me and the sib there are 6 cats, 4 snakes, 2 lizards, a rat and a tarantula.

All those I can deal with. It's the BS and backtalk from the teenagers that makes me why we're considered more because we DON'T eat our young!

HA! I’ve got you all beat. I have NO kids, two dogs and one husband. Wait a sec. I think the husband may count as a kid tho, cuz they never grow up.

Irony...close cousin of sarcasm. Had to resusitate my little uromastyx. He nearly suffocated behind his water bowl. Cage is now on the floor until the reconfigure. Meanwhile, the whale cat is holding court on top of the enclosure. Yeah, the sphynx atop a box of baby lizards. Yeah, there's irony for ya.

I truly am zoo keeper, but it is my contention that I like the cats, lizards, tarantula and rat MUCH better than I like the kids. emoticon

My cat has decided to start sleepiong in the sink in my downstairs bathroom and gets very confused when I use the room. I try to be quiet.

I say, look in the mirror, wink, and say "Who's your Mamma!", give yourself a smack on your (thinner) tush and recognize what a super dame you are and how far you've come already...ok, so maybe it's not totally sarcastic, but...

LOVE the "Ashes of problem employees" jar on the desk. That is SO cool! I WANT ONE!!

Yesterday and this week has been a bit of a rough patch. Have screwed up my food plan 2 days badly. Only got into the gym 1 time. Trying to pull my eating and exercise plans out of the toilet, along with my self esteem. Trying to figure out how I can use sarcasm to get back on track.

Any ideas?

Oh, and my cat, who is laying on top of my blanket so only SHE can use it says, "Just remember,Dogs have masters, cats have staff....NOW PET ME!!!"

My reply: YES MA'AM!....Yes, I know who's boss. :oP

Hi Cranky, welcome to the team.

Mere, you brave girl you. I would have bought the shirt but not been brave enough to wear it. I have the “emergency” quote printed and taped to my wall in my office at work. It seems to be the norm around here.

Nightwings, “reach out and touch someone” haha I like that one.

Queencathr, Can I borrow that mug one of these days? lol

emoticon Barbarasdiet, I too would love to put that in my e-mail signature but as an HR Director I can't go that far. However, I do have a jar in my office labeled 'Ashes of Problem Employees' and one of my employees bought me a mug with the saying 'I See Dumb People' on it which I display on my credenza at work. ;~)

Mere--you're a brave woman to have worn that shirt in front of a pro-life protest.....I shudder...

Love the quote in your signature--Poor planning on your part, etc. That is what goes on at work constantly--some of us get to clean up the messes. I'm thinking of putting it in my email autosignature, but not too sure it will go over well....

Confession: Sarcasm is my nephew's way of life, not mine. Then again, a good bit of sarcasm can go a long way.

LOVE the T-shirt slogan thing. My favorite were 2 I wore back in the early 80s. One was the Flying Tigers T-shirt with a huge red tiger on the back and the slogan, "Tigers do it better" on the front. My ultimate favorite was my braille T-shirt that had a message in braille across the bosom (raised flocked dots) and a written translation below. It read both ways "Reach out and touch someone." Mom hated them both, but I loved them.

i'm one of those peeps who wears what i think on my shirt for the whole damn world to see. my mother asked me once if i was ever going to quit wearing jeans and t shirts and i told her i would...when i was dead. the only thing about my t shirts i have changed since getting older is the words...used to like all the shock words but still find plenty of sarcastic sayings without the shock words....which are regular words in my everyday vocabulary. tell us some of your favorite t shirt sayings. one of my favorites to wear was this: Wolfe Brothers Abortion Clinics...you rape em, we scrape em...no fetus can beat us. This was back in the 80's in Wichita, Ks, where all the pro lifers showed up in front of Dr. George Tiller's clinic on Kellogg drive. Loved to walk my dogs or ride my bike by all these protesters wearing this shirt. They didn't think it was too funny but the looks on their faces sure were....Shock value equals instant responses.....mere

emoticon Welcome! Sarcasm is a way of life in my house. We have a raised one teen and had a sign hanging in the powder room "Mothers of teenagers know why animals eat their young". I have 8 and 3 year old daughters who already say 'duh mom' and roll their eyes. My other three haven't caught up yet but they will!
