A woman was recently awarded $775,000 after tripping at a Nevada casino. What did she trip over you ask? Worn carpet? Loose floorboard? Trash? Wet pool deck? No nothing the normal person would trip over. She was awarded $775,000.00 for tripping over a speed bump, and a judge upheld it in his court. You can’t even believe how head shaking that is to me. I’ve tripped over speed bumps and I usually just look around to see if anyone saw it, never hit the ground like she did though. My God I’m glad she didn’t encounter a curb on her way in.
Paula Deen was recently called a rasist for comments she made one time, yeah right, a long time ago. Imagine that, an elderly southern white woman called racist. Wow who’d of thought.

A few days ago a group of us from work went to lunch and as it happens sometimes we had to wait a few minutes to get served. I’m not much of a waiter but I had no choice. As we were leaving the waitress says; I apologize for the wait but for some reason we got hit all at once. That was called lunch time miss.
Last weekend as my wife and I were getting ready to close up the condo and head for home she was about to cut off the water but before she did she asked me if I had to pee. I reached into my pocket and pulled out my keys, looked straight at her and said “yes I have them there right here”. The old hearing is slowly going away, We laughed for 10 minutes!
