Too Good Not To Pass On...

Thanks to my friend in New Zealand for this little bit of silliness! Scary but true stuff...!

Some guy bought a new fridge for his house. To get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying: "Free to good home. You want it, you take it".
For three days the fridge sat there without even one person looking twice at it. He eventually decided that people were too un-trusting of this deal. It looked to good to be true, so he changed the sign to read: "Fridge for sale $50". The next day someone stole it. Caution! . . . . . . . . . . . . These people Vote!

While looking at a house, my brother asked the real estate agent which direction was North because, he explained, he didn't want the sun waking him up every morning. She asked, "Does the sun rise in the North?"When my brother explained that the sun rises in the East, (and has for sometime), she shook her head and said, "Oh, I don't keep up with that stuff". . . . . . . .She ALSO votes!

I used to work in technical support for a 24/7 call center. One day Igot a call from an individual who asked what hours the call center was open. I told him, "The number you dialed is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week." He responded, "Is that Eastern or Pacific time?" Wanting to end the call quickly, I said, "Uh, Pacific" . . . . . . . . .He ALSO votes!

My colleague and I were eating our lunch in our cafeteria, when we overheard one of the administrative assistants talking about the sunburn she got on her weekend drive to the shore. She drove down in a convertible, but "didn't think she'd get sunburned because the car was moving". . . . . . . . . She ALSO votes!

My sister has a lifesaving tool in her car. It's designed to cut through a seat belt if she gets trapped. She keeps it in the trunk . . . . . . My sister ALSO votes!

My friends and I were on a beer run and noticed that the cases were discounted 10%. Since it was a big party, we bought 2 cases. The cashier multiplied 2 times 10% and gave us a 20% discount . . . . . . . He ALSO votes!

I was hanging out with a friend when we saw a woman with a nose ring attached to an earring by a chain. My friend said, "Wouldn't the chain rip out every time she turned her head?" I explained that a person's nose and ear remain the same distance apart no matter which way the head is turned. . . . . . . . . . My friend ALSO votes!

I couldn't find my luggage at the airport baggage area. So I went to the lost luggage office and told the woman there that my bags never showed up. She smiled and told me not to worry because she was a trained professional and I was in good hands. "Now," she asked me, "has your plane arrived yet? ". . . . . . . . SHE ALSO votes!

While working at a Pizza Parlor I observed a man ordering a small pizza to go. He appeared to be alone and the cook asked him if he would like it cut into 4 pieces or 6. He though about it for some time before responding. "Just cut it into 4 pieces; I don't think I'm hungry enough to eat 6 . . . . . . . . . Yep, he votes too.

Now you know who elects the politicians!

God help us all...!! Now let's get some fresh coffee, my friend!

You know, I think I've met some of those people. I once said to my friend, Jean, "I don't know what's going to happen in the future."

She asked, "Like what?"

And she votes.

Ashley

Yeah...my first thought was to check and see if my name was on that list somewhere! Funny how we have all met at least one of these people before, huh?

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for the chuckle Hermit, I needed it!

HermitJim said...

Hey, we all need one from time to time, ya know? That's what keeps us sane (or what passes for sane in your neighborhood)

Thanks for stopping by!

Stephanie in AR said...

I have talked to people like this & once in a great while been one myself. Yes I vote. lol

HermitJim said...

Hey Stephanie...thanks for stopping by today! I think we have all been guilty of saying something like this at least once. I know I have.

Spokes... said...

Considering the percentage of people who actually vote the chances are pretty good most of those folks don't...at least I hope not.

ANDY & MEL LOWE said...

Brilliant Jim

and thanks for popping over to the bus

HermitJim said...

Hey Spokes...sure do thank you for coming by! I agree with you that many, many of these people probably don't vote, but if they do...what do you think is their way off picking who to vote for?


Hey Andy & Mel...Glad to have a visit all the way from the highlands! I can almost be there in your wonderful photos, my friend!

Keep up the good work!
