To err is human, to forgive is against company policy....
 
   Law of Mechanical Repair - After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you'll have to urinate.

The folks in the aisle seats come early, never move once, have long gangly legs or big bellies and stay to the bitter end of the performance. The aisle people also are very surly folk.

An aphorism is a statement of truth or opinion expressed in a concise and witty manner. The term is often applied to philosophical, moral and literary principles.
 
♦ I read that 4,153,237 people got married last year. Not to cause any trouble, but shouldn't that be an even number?
 
♦ I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.
 
♦ When wearing a bikini, women reveal 90% of their body. Men are so polite they only look at the covered parts.
 
♦ Relationships are a lot like algebra. Have you ever looked at your X and wondered Y?
 
♦ America is a country which produces citizens who will cross the ocean to fight for democracy but won't cross the street to vote.
 
♦ You know that tingly little feeling you get when you love someone?  That's your common sense leaving your body.
 
♦ My therapist says I have a preoccupation with vengeance. We'll see about that!
 
♦ I think my neighbor is stalking me as she's been Googling my name on her computer. I saw it through my telescope last night.
 
♦ Money talks ... but all mine ever says is good-bye.
 
♦ You're not fat, you're just easier to see.
 
♦ If you think nobody cares whether you're alive, try missing a couple of payments.
 
♦ I always wondered what the job application is like at Hooters. Do they just give you a bra and say, "Here, fill this out?"
 
♦ I can’t understand why women are OK that JC Penny has an older women’s clothing line named, "Sag Harbor."
 
♦ Denny’s has a slogan, "If it’s your birthday, the meal is on us." If you’re in Denny’s and it’s your birthday, your life sucks!
 
♦ The location of your mailbox shows you how far away from your house you can go in a robe before you start looking like a mental patient.
 
♦ I think it's pretty cool how Chinese people made a language entirely out of tattoos.
 
♦ Money can’t buy happiness, but it keeps the kids in touch!
 
♦ The reason Mayberry was so peaceful and quiet was because nobody was married. Andy, Aunt Bea, Barney, Floyd, Howard, Goober, Gomer, Sam, Earnest T Bass, Helen, Thelma Lou, Clara and, of course, Opie were all single. The only married person was Otis, and he stayed drunk.
 
Now, don’t you feel better knowing what an aphorism is?

Denny’s has a slogan, "If it’s your birthday, the meal is on us." If you’re in Denny’s and it’s your birthday, your life sucks!

A few years ago some black men who worked for the secret service sued a Denny's in South Carolina, if I remember correctly. A local DJ said they would lose the law suit because everyone gets bad service at Denny's.
-------------------------------
I think it's pretty cool how Chinese people made a language entirely out of tattoos.

A lady said she saw a guy with Chinese characters tattoo on his arm. She asked him what it said. He said "I don't know". She took a picture of it and showed it to a Chinese friend and asked the friend what it said. The Chinese friend said it says "I don't know."

Thinking he was being comical, a man joked about his wife being a little overweight by saying, "We should wash your clothes in Slim Fast. Maybe that would take a few inches off your butt!"

Since it was close to bedtime, she didn't want to start an argument, so just ignored it and went to sleep.

Next morning the husband pulled out a pair of clean underwear covered in powder. He said, "What's this stuff on my shorts?"

The wife replied, "It's called MIRACLE GROW!"

A girl came skipping home from school one day.

"Mommy! Mommy! I was the only kid in my class who could count all the way to 10. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10......see?"

The mother said "That's nice dear". The girl asked "Why am I so smart? Is it because I'm blonde?"
The mom replied "Yes dear. It's because you're blonde".

The next day, the girl came running in yelling "Mommy! Mommy! I was the only one who could say my ABC's all the way up to G. Listen, A B C D E F G........see?"
"That's nice dear" said the mom. "Am I so smart because I'm blonde?" asked the girl.
"Yes honey" replied her mother.

The 3rd day, the girl ran in even more excited. "Mommy! Mommy! We had gym class today. When I took my top off, my boobs were WAY bigger than all the other girls. Why are my boobs so big? Is it because I'm blonde?"

"No" said the mother. "It's because you're 24 years old".

A man and his wife were awakened at 3:00 am by a loud pounding on the door.
The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push.
"Not a chance," says the husband, "it is 3:00 in the morning!"
He slams the door and returns to bed.
"Who was that?" asked his wife..
"Just some drunk guy asking for a push," he answers.
"Did you help him?" she asks. "No, I did not, it’s 3am in the morning and it’s bloody pouring rain out there!"
"Well, you have a short memory," says his wife. "Can't you remember about three months ago when we broke down, and those two guys helped us? I think you should help him, and you should be ashamed of yourself!
“God loves drunk people too you know.”
The man does as he is told, gets dressed, and goes out into the pounding rain.
He calls out into the dark, "Hello, are you still there?"
"Yes," comes back the answer. "Do you still need a push?" calls out the husband.
"Yes, please!" comes the reply from the dark. "Where are you?" asks the husband.
"Over here on the swing," replied the drunk.

Tom decided to get a face lift so he would look younger.

When he left the hospital, he stopped in at a convenience store to buy a cup of coffee.

He asked the cashier "How old do I look?" The cashier looked him over and said "I'd say about 35".
Beaming with pride, Tom told the cashier that he was actually 47.

Later, he went to Mcdonald's for lunch. Again, he asked the cashier how old she thought he was.
She replied "Oh, I'd say you're 29". Tom smiled, and said "Actually, I'm 47".

On his way home, he spotted an old lady at the bus stop. So he asked her the same question.
The lady said "Honey, I'm 87 and my vision is very poor. But if you let me feel your balls for 10 minutes, I'm sure that I can guess your age".

Since no one was around, Tom agreed. The old lady ran her hand down Tom's pants and felt of his balls. After 10 minutes, she said "You're 47".

Astonished, Tom said "Wow! That's exactly right. How did you know?"

The old lady said "I was in line behind you at Mcdonald's".

Kyle told his father "Dad! I found the right girl. I'm in love!"

The dad said "That's great son! Who is it?"
Kyle said "It's Lisa, the girl next door".

The dad said "Oh, son. I wish you hadn't told me that. You can't be in love with Lisa. Don't tell your mom this, but Lisa is your sister". Kyle was devastated, but promised not to tell mom.

A few days later Kyle told his dad "I'm in love again! It's Angela, who lives on the end of the block!"
Dad said "Son, I'm sorry. But Angela is also your sister".

Kyle was furious. Immediately he ran and told his mom what dad had done. His mom said "Honey, you can date whoever you want. Lisa and Angela aren't your sisters. Because dad isn't your father.

I'm passing this on as I did not want to be the only old person receiving it. Actually, it's not a bad thing to be called, as you will see.
•   Old People are easy to spot at sporting events; during the playing of the National Anthem. Old People remove their caps and stand at attention and sing without embarrassment. They know the words and believe in them.
•   Old People remember World War II, Pearl Harbor , Guadalcanal , Normandy and Hitler. They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War, The Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing. They remember the 50 plus Peacekeeping Missions from 1945 to 2005, not to mention Vietnam .
•   If you bump into an Old People on the sidewalk he will apologize. If you pass an Old Person on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady. Old People trust strangers and are courtly to women.
•   Old People hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection.
•   Old People get embarrassed if someone curses in front of women and children and they don't like any filth or dirty language on TV or in movies.
•   Old People have moral courage and personal integrity. They seldom brag unless it's about their children or grandchildren.
•   It's the Old People who know our great country is protected, not by politicians, but by the young men and women in the military serving their country.

This country needs Old People with their work ethic, sense of responsibility, pride in their country and decent values.

We need them now more than ever.

Thank God for Old People
Pass this on to all of the "Old People" you know.
I was taught to respect my elders. It's just getting harder to find them.

Amen brother Steve, amen. Some young'uns still treat "old people" with respect. Usually they are raised in a family with both a father and a mother. Often raised in a Christion family. They are encouraged to always do better. Stay in school, taught good work ethics, given strict allowance on the internet. Encouraged to participate in sports, scouts, band and maybe even theater. Perhaps even encouraged into the military. Citizenship and patronage are not foreign to them. Leadership skills are important, but of course not every child develops skills in the same way.

Most important, they are encouraged to ask grandpa and grandma what it was like... way back when.   

There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.

Big brother is 4 years old. Little brother is half his age. How old will little brother be when big brother is 100?

A doctor gives you 3 pills, and instructs you to take 1 every half hour. How long will it take you to consume all 3?

You have 2 items totaling $11. One item is $10 more than the other item. How much does each item cost?

You are sent to a well to fetch EXACTLY 4 gallons of water. All you have is a 5 gallon bucket and a 3 gallon bucket. How do you do it? No estimating allowed. Must be 4 gallons exactly.

You come to a river. You are carrying a fox, a chicken, and a bag of chicken feed. You can only carry one at a time as you swim across the river. You can't leave the fox alone with the chicken because he'll eat it. Likewise, you can't leave the chicken alone with the chicken feed. How do you do it?

There may be a simpler method but here is what I came up with

Fill the five gallon bucket. Pour 3 gallons into the 3 gallon bucket. Empty the 3 gallon bucket. This leaves two gallons in the 5 gallon bucket. Mark the two gallon point on the inside of the five gallon bucket. Empty the 2 gallons into the 3 gallon bucket. Fill the 5 gallon bucket to the 2 gallon mark. Pour the 2 gallons from the three gallon bucket into the five gallon bucket to make 4 gallons. 

There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.

Here's a way to do it with no marking required.

Fill the 3 gallon bucket.
Transfer all 3 galons into the 5 gallon bucket.
Fill the 3 gallon bucket again.
Pour the 3 gallon bucket into the 5 gallon bucket until it is full. You will now have exactly 1 gallon remaining in the 3 gallon bucket.
Empty the 5 galon bucket.
Pour the 1 gallon from the 3 gallon bucket into the 5 gallon bucket.
Fill the 3 gallon  bucket and transfer it into the 5 gallon bucket that currently contains1 gallon.
