A little reprieve from your ‘case of the Mondays.’

Batteries are the most dramatic object there is. Other things stop working or break. But batteries die!

  • Why aren’t you listening to your walkman?
  • I can’t my batteries died in my lap this morning! The twins are gone!

If you’re a battery you’re either working or your dead!

I noticed there are no B batteries?  It goes straight from A to C. I think that’s to avoid confusion. Because if there were B batteries you wouldn’t know if someone wanted them or had a stutter.

  • Can I help you? 
  • Yes, I’d like B batteries.
  • Sure, what kind?
  • B batteries.
  • Right what kind?

I never order C batteries in 2s.

  • Yes, I’d like 2 C batteries.
  • Well look at them stupid!

    (yet they seem to be the last thing a person checks on wireless systems…of course until it’s to late)

    Hmmmm…as your attorney, I would advise that you cite where you got that material from so as to avoid confusion as to its origin. =)

    I thought I alluded to that earlier. Sorry, do I need to cite Demetri each time?
    I was hoping you’d catch this. It was your ‘case of the Mondays’ I was referring to 🙂

    I don’t have “a case of the Mondays.” I am suffering from “freakin’ finals!” =)

    oh, reminds me of a story …

    I was working the counter in a convenience store I was running and decided to have some fun.

    I took a Duracell D battery and a packet of Iodized Salt and placed them next to the register with a note reading “These items represent two things you never want to see in store. Correctly name them and you win a free fountain drink!”

    I thought the little contest would be easier for my customers than it was. I think people put too much thought into their answers.

    It took an hour for a police officer (of course lol) to give the first correct answer. Assault & Battery. ~.^

    Assault and Battery…awesome!
    Yeah, I’m really not that funny by myself so I get alot of help from Jim, Demetri, Dane, Brian 🙂
