|I recently telephoned a local company about some information I wanted, was put on hold and heard two women talking. |
One was telling the other how effeminate her son was, even describing things he did or didnt do. The was other was trying to give her advice.
I listened for a (very short) while and then felt bad for eavesdropping on this crossed line. So I hung up, dialled the company again, said I'd got got cut off and could I speak to (whoever) and again was put on hold.
Again, back to this conversation about this woman's son. So again, I put the phone down, rang back but this time told the operator that I was getting put on hold with this crossed line where they were having a very personal conversation. I even told her what they were talking about.
I cannot for the life of me understand how the operator didnt howl with laughter when she told me they had talk radio linked onto their telephone system and I was actually listening to the radio while on hold!!

|I was in Woolies once and picked up this big bone for the dogs. My mum told me to go and get it cut in half for them so I went up to the counter and asked them to cut it. The bemused looking person who served me told me I was at the bakery and should go to the meat counter - I wonder why the loaves of bread everywhere didn't tip me off|

|I was at the Melville Markets near Fremantle with my dog on a leash. |
I just happened to turn around in time to see my dog sniffing the black boots of a large Russian lady .
The Russian lady was busy haggling with the stall owner over the price of something .
All to quickly my dog c#cked his leg and did a little sqirt .....,
...., the trouble was the little squirt went over the top of the boot....,and a stream of Russian expleatives followed us out of that carpark !!

|My idiot moment would have been when I was about 20 ..young and naive..I had gone into hospital for my first child..My pride and joy was my bonsai plants that I was trying to grow..I get home to find the soil rock hard and no plants...the man of the house had forgotten to water them...His excuse was that I had planted the seeds upside down and thats why they didn't grow..and doofus that I am..believed him..arrggghh!!|

|Ok, this week I've had a MAJOR idiot moment; one that could have killed me & the sad thing is I didn't realise until about 5 days later it had happened.....|
Scenario: Me in pain with an abcessed, broken tooth, sleep deprived, barely functioning as a person. My cats currently on flea control tablets.....
I sit a pile of half used up pain killers down on top of the cats flea medication, those white tablets in the silver bubble packs all look the same.....
Around 2am early morning after the tooth is cut out of the bone I'm desperately downing what I think are ibuprofen tablets & wondering why the hell they're having no effect. I'm feeling pretty crook for about 3 days..... must be the abcess making me sweat & shake & feel sick......
Last night I go to give the cats their tablets, when I can't find them realisation dawns....
Strangely the midges & mossies have been leaving me alone the past few days.....

So does that mean you killed all your pet fleas.....ohhhhhhhh... poor fleas

|I was travelling on the train down to the gold coast when the battery on my radio died.|
I began to retify the problem when I noticed a women a few seats down who was facing in my direction, looking at me in that "what the hell is he doing, but I don't want him to know that I am looking at him" expression on her face. She could see my upper body from my upper arms onwards. All she could see was a lot of movement happening with my right arm in a rhythmic manner and that I was looking down at my lap, and the more vigorous my arm got, the more she seemed to take notice.
I lifted the dynamo operated torch up to where she could see it....and gave the dynamo a few turns.....her face turned the brightest shade of red......

|Yep Goddess, all insect life in my near vicinity has been quaking in fear the last few days, my friends are speculating how long the effects of the tablets will last. After all for a cat it's about a month, but as I weigh considerably more than my cats does this mean only a few days for me? |

|But what I really want to know Sierra, is do you have a nice shiny coat now?|

| I have the opposite flea problem, I took a flea free dog to the vet and got lectured on flea control because of her sandfly bites, then to add insult to injury, she came home from the vet with fleas she got from one of the other dogs there.|

|Stearing away from pets & insects, 3 weeks ago whilst riding my pushy & trying to be smart by beating 2 lanes of oncoming traffic & doing a hook turn. In the process of the turn, the pedal on the side I was turning into, was down & bit the bituemn, back wheel came up & I bit the dust & managed to beat the traffic at well & narrowly been missed.|
Picked myself up & said a few choice words & hobbled of the road to assess the damage & thinking that it was just a bad sprain & lost minimal bark. An elderly lady comes over & says that I should get it xrayed as it could be broken, got a lift home & tried a few anti sweeling treatments, but not with much luck.
7 hrs later I jump on my motor bike & go to the hospital, only to find that I broke my ankle. Upon lleaving, I had one of the nurses try & put the cops on me for riding a bike with a broken ankle.
Rang the boss the next morning (Sunday), he wasnt too impressed that I had taken myself out of commission.

|^^^Umm ahh. Tisk tisk. Injured motorcycling. |
I fell through a ceiling inside and old RAAF hanger putting phone cables in. This metal fabrication business had all this ceiling area propped up from beneath with acro props, so they could store crap on top. That's where the phone cables needed to go so I thought, "Cool, this should be easy. People must come up here a fair bit" and could see foot prints on heavily trafficked Masonite ceiling panels that had formply beneath them...or so I thought.
Tra la la, working away running the phone cable through the trusses this job was 90% finished, when WHOOMPA! I landed downstars on a $60 000 photocopier and kind of on my head. I got up immediately and looked up and sat in an office chair...surrounded by debris and asbestos dust. There were obviously no props in the bosses office...
I then drove myself to hospital, where I was told after about an hour and a half wait, that I had fractured a couple of vertebrae and not to move a muscle...tisk tisk
When I told my mate and his wife about what happened, she didn't believe that there are photocopiers worth that amount because she sells them...
