Where is my Friday Yuk?

Tags: Off Topic
OK so I'm not funny enough to be a good joke teller. But I am in desparate need of some cheering up. Please send along your jokes.

I am about to go on vacation, but had a really crappy customer interaction yesterday.

I will point out something ironic (depending on your definition).

Yesterday a Canadian won our countries first gold medal in horse jumping (Eric Lamaze). This Olympian came from a rough background, family addiction issues etc. He was kicked out of the sport for 2 Olympics for testing positive for cocaine, but has changed his life and come back from adversity.

Not to take anything away from his significant achievement (4 perfect rounds) but some of his major competitors were knocked out of the competition before it even began. Why? The horses failed the drug tests. They had been given pain killers before the team event earlier in the week. The bronze medalist team may lose their medal.

Is it ironic?

Perspective

by jdclyde In reply to Where is my Friday Yuk?

Two college students, Frank and Matt, are riding on a New York City subway when a beggar approaches them asking for spare change.

Frank adamantly rejects the man in disgust.

Matt, on the other hand, whips out his wallet, pulls out a couples of dollar bills and gladly hands them over to the beggar with a smile.

The beggar thanks him kindly and then continues on to the other passengers. Frank is outraged by his friend's act of generosity.

"What on earth did you do that for?" shouts Frank. "You know he's only going to use it on drugs or booze!!!"

Matt replies, "What...and we weren't?"

Marriage quotes

by Jellimonsta In reply to Where is my Friday Yuk?

Well, considering it is my 10yr anniversay, I may as well post some marriage quotes.

This delivery driver carries no money. His wife has it all.

We in the industry know that behind every successful screenwriter stands a woman. And behind her stands his wife. -- Groucho Marx

We must respect the other fellow's religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart. -- H.L. Mencken

When a man steals your wife, there is no better revenge than to let him keep her. -- Guitry

Why bother with marriage? Just find a woman you hate and buy her a house.

Wife: The perfect acquisition for any gentleman feeling himself to have excessive control over his personal affairs.

How to deal with Aholes

by Jellimonsta In reply to Where is my Friday Yuk?

For all of you who occasionally have a really bad day, and you just need to take it out on someone, don't take it out on someone you know, take it out on someone you don't know.

I was sitting at my desk, when I remembered a phone call I had forgotten to make. I found the number, and dialed it.

A man answered saying, "Hello?"

I politely said, "Could I please speak with Robin Carter?"

Suddenly, the phone was slammed down on me. I couldn't believe that anyone could be so rude. I tracked down Robin's correct number, and called her. (I had transposed the last two digits of her phone number).After hanging up with her, I decided to call the 'wrong' number
again.

When the same guy answered the phone, I yelled, "You're an a$$hole!" and hung up.

I wrote his number down, with the word 'a$$hole' next to it,and put it in my desk drawer. Every couple of weeks, when I was paying bills or had a really bad day, I'd call him. He'd answer and I'd yell, "You're an a$$hole!" It always cheered me up.

When Caller ID came to our area, I thought my therapeutic 'a$$hole' calling would have to stop. So, I called his number and said, "Hi, this is John Smith from the Telephone Company. I'm just calling to see if you're familiar with the caller ID program?"

He yelled, "NO!" and slammed the phone down.

I quickly called him back and said, "That's because you're an a$$hole."

So, one day I was at the store, getting ready to pull into a parking spot. Some boy in a black BMW cut me off, and pulled into the spot I had patiently waited for. I hit the horn and yelled that I had been waiting for the spot.

The idiot ignored me. I noticed a "For Sale" sign in his car window, so I wrote down his number. A couple of days later,right after calling the first a$$hole (I had his number on speed dial), I thought I had better call the BMW a$$hole, too.

I dialed and someone said, "Hello?"

I said, "Is this the man with the black BMW for sale?"

"Yes it is."

"Can you tell me where I can see it?"

"Yes, I live at 1802 West 34th Street. It's a yellow house and the car's parked right out front."

"What's your name?" I asked.

"My name is Don Hansen," he said.

"When's a good time to catch you, Don?"

"I'm home every evening after five."

Then I hung up, and added his number to my speed dial, too. Now, when I had a problem, I had two a$$hole to call.

But after several months of calling them, it wasn't as enjoyable as it used to be. So, I came up with an idea: I called a$$hole #1.

"Hello"

"You're an a$$hole!" (but I didn't hang up.)

"Are you still there?" he asked.

"Yeah," I said.

"Stop calling me," he screamed

"Make me," I said.

"Who are you?" he asked.

"My name is Don Hansen."

"Yeah? Where do you live?"

"A$$hole, I live at 1802 West 34th Street, a yellow house with my black Beemer our front."

He said, "I'm coming over right now, Don. And you had better start saying your prayers."

I said, "Yeah, like I'm really scared, a$$hole."

Then I called a$$hole # 2: "Hello?" he said.

"Hello A$$hole," I said.

He yelled, "If I ever find out who you are..."

"You'll what?" I said.

"I'll kick your ***," he exclaimed.

I answered, "Well, a$$hole, here's your chance. I'm coming over right now."

Then, I hung up, and immediately called the police saying that I lived at 1802 West 34th Street, and I was on my way over there to kill my gay lover. Then, I called Channel 13 news about the gang war going down on West 34th Street.

I quickly got into my car and headed over to 34th St. There, I saw two a$$holes beating the crap out of each other in front of 6 squad cars, a police helicopter, and news crew.

Now, I feel better.

I know many people in my husband's circle of contacts get all worked up about Virus Alerts they receive. If they'd do a tiny bit of research they'd find out that they were hoaxes from the early 90's! <sigh>

I found out about snopes long ago because my dad's 2nd cousin did exactly that. I've tried it as well, but 1/2 the people still don't have a clue.

I have also replied back with the BCC bit, again - not much results.

<sigh> I guess that's why we're in IT and they're not!
