1. "I'd never be here today if I hadn't gotten blotto and bought that horse back in 1992."--Never did get to hear the whole story. I still wonder about it from time to time.

2. "The guy...THAT guy I was telling you about...the one who got admitted for removing his own eye? Yeah, him. You aren't going to believe what he did yesterday."--Yeah, I asked about that one and got the whole story. Wish I hadn't. Jeebus.

Heard on the elevator at work....

"If your farts smelled like Cinabon, I'd eat your a$$..."

Not kidding...

During the campaign in a Starbucks heard someone behind me say "yeah I'm not seeing Lincoln, we have him to blame for Obama since he freed them".

I don't think anyone would believe some of the doozies I've heard at work over the years. To this day, people amaze me with the lies they come up with. I'll have to doubt my own humanity if I ever get to the point that some of them no longer surprise me.

Well, not at work but at a doctor's office, pregnant woman walks in. A little girl sitting near me whispers to her mother, "What's that in her belly?". Mother: "Oh, that's her baby!". Little girl: "Why did she eat her baby?"

This isn't something I overheard but read. My ex and I were at my daughter's school for parent/teacher conferences and when I came back from smoking she pointed at picture on the wall and told me to read it and it said "If I were an old lady I would swallow a baby." Of course I thought wow what a weird kid then I read the name on the paper and it was my weird kid.

Its the first really nice day of spring, Just before the beginning of the shift my phone rings.

Me: Hello
Employee: (coughing) I don't think I am going to make it into work this afternoon, I'm feeling pretty bad (cough, cough)
Me: That sounds like a pretty bad cough you have there
Employee: Yea, I think I caught that (cough) bug that has been going around.
Me: Oh yea which one is that.
Employee: I think its that sickle cell or what ever it is that's going around, I feel horrible. (cough)
Me: That is pretty bad stuff, I think you should probably get in contact with the CDC or Mayo clinic.
Employee: I really feel bad, but I don't think its that serious is it (Cough)?
Me: Well since sickle cell is a genetic blood disorder that rarely affects middle aged white guys, I would say its serious. You could be a really rare case, and they may want to do a study on you. So unless you have a Dr slip, your day off is unapproved, have a nice golf game.

Reason: spelling error
