A man in Northern California was picked up by a garbage truck and was trapped inside for hours! He was dumpster diving and seemed to pick the wrong dumpster to search for goodies in! The man was presumably searching for his lost wallet. The truck was headed to the landfill after he was picked up. The cops say the man used lumber in the truck to reach the top of the truck to avoid the compactor. The man was taken to the hospital for complaints of neck and back pain. We found an article in the Daily Mail that claims that women have been dumpster diving behind high end stores for beauty products that are expensive. Women are even diving in groups and stakeout the high end stores. Instead of going to book club they are diving into a smelly dumpster requiring awesome product! The department stores throw away a lot of products from perfume to small cosmetics. Some divers have even required 100 dollars' worth of skin care products!
Slacker does not understand why they put cameras on the outside of the buildings to catch people from dumpster diving because he does not understand why they would care! He has dumpster dived once when someone was getting evicted and the police were throwing away this tenants belongings. After the police left Slacker went through the dumpster and took some of the nice possessions this former ternate had. Slacker even gifted his family with some of the belongings he took like a light up Christmas village nativity scene.
Steve thinks that dumpster diving is gross. He thinks the guy who got stuck in the dump truck is dumb because he had 18 minutes and a huge fair warning to get out of the dumpster.
Lil' D went to South Padre with his friends for Spring Break and they went to a burger joint. His friend emptied out the food trays into the garbage that was filled with nacho cheese, grease, and puke. He went diving for his retainer and put it back into his mouth! EWWWW!!
Have you ever dumpster dived? If not, would you ever?
I have never dumpster dived but now it sound extremely compelling after reading the article about retrieving high end beauty products. I might have to hit up Ulta tonight after the store is closed to score some great free deals!
A man went to the doctor to get out of his normal duties as a construction worker and somehow ended up with a doctor's note stating that the only position he can have relations in is on his back with very little movement. He posted his note from his doctor on reddit.com. He finally had proof to show his girlfriend he can be lazy in bed. Many people commute to work by walking, but people are getting lazy and taking Air Wheels. Air Wheel is an electric uni-wheel that you stand on like a Segway that can reach up to speeds of 14 miles per hour. These things are flying off of the shelves! The ride using an Air Wheel can travel up to 24 miles on one charge. You lean forward to move forward, lean back to stop or slow down, leaning left and right will turn you in those directions. Aside being used for commuting to work, people are taking them to the grocery stores and even walking their dog! How lazy!
Slacker says there is a bike that just came out last year that has motor on it so when you have to climb a hill it will just "zoom" you up the hill without having to feel a burn. He also says he knows of this robot for 99 dollars that will play catch with your dogs. Slacker says that Steve is the laziest person he knows.
Steve says that the Air Wheel is a brilliant idea because it saves your "leg muscles!" He loves technology even if it means your being considered lazy. Steve had a DVD of a perfectly good movie and instead of getting up to go put the movie in, he just bought it on On Demand.
What is the laziest thing you have ever done?
I am so lazy to even walk around the office so I take a scooter!
Yi! I'm divorced and 42. My daughter is 22 and just moved back here. Last week, she and her best friend stopped by for drinks. While my daughter was in the bathroom, her friend flirted with me. She's gorgeous and I think she wants me to ask her out. Should I talk to my daughter first? Is this wrong? Can you ask your listeners if any of them have ever been in this position.
Slacker thinks that Jason needs to "fish" elsewhere. He thinks that he absolutely needs to talk about the situation with his daughter because if he did not it would be "d-baggy." He said that if he ever dated someone his daughter's age at 22 he would remember that his daughter is the same age and be turned off immediately. Slacker says that he is giving Jason permission to sleep with anyone else but his daughter's friend.
Steve says either way Jason is going to go for it. He says her being 22 years old is not as creepy because she has probably out of school but it would be creepy he thinks if Jason was plucking her up from study hall. Steve says there is a study that a lot of divorced moms have been dating a lot younger men.
Is this wrong? Should he ask his daughter first?
My boyfriend is seven years older than me and his sister is my age. So even that is weird for he both of us. This is a tough situation because on one level it is creepy but the daughter's friend could be legitimately be interested in him. I would consult with his daughter before making any other decisions.
Today's Great Mate Debate is from Jack and Megan. Jack and Megan are married and have children together. Due to their busy work schedules they had to hire a nanny. The children absolutely love the nanny, however, Megan does not. She thinks that the nanny is getting too close and attached to her children. An example of the nanny being too close is when one of her children fell at the playground she ran to the nanny instead of Megan. She says that the kids are more excited to see the nanny then they are her. She wants to let her go because she dies not want another person closer to her children than she is. Jack says he wants to keep the nanny because the children love her. He says if the kids love and trust the nanny what more do you want? Jack says he does not want the kids to be around someone that he does not trust and that the kids do not love. To keep or to fire, that is the question!
Slacker thinks that Megan is being jealous. He says that he can understand where Megan is coming from because he understands the want to be the Alpha over their kids.
Steve says that as a parent you want someone to watch your kids that they love. He says, "Don't fix something that is not broken."
Lil' D says that one time when he went to daycare he was watched by this woman named Robin. When his mom came to pick him up he told his mom, "Hey mom! Look at my new mommy!" Lil' D never went back to that daycare again.
Whose side are you on?
I can understand both sides of the argument; however, I have to side more with Megan because I would want my kids to value me more than the nanny. I do not suggest they fire her but maybe express Megan's concerns and find a solution to the problem.
Today we are talking about "Stay away from a guy who______" An example would be "Stay away from a guy who takes a lot of selfies because he is self concieded. Another example is "Stay away from a guy who calls his mother everyday" because he is a huge mama's boy!
Slacker says "Stay away from a guy who line dances" because it is unsexy form of dancing. He says that staying away from a guy who is taking a lot of selfies the same rules apply for women. He also says "Stay away from a man who has had a failed engagement" because he probably has a reptile.
Steve says "Stay away from a guy who has reptiles" because they are different type of people especially the cage is in their living room.
What is your "Stay away from a guy_______" and explain why!
I always say "Stay away from a guy who roofies your drink" because they are up to no good.
We are either a fan or a hater, but former Broncos quarterback is kind of cute. Jay Cutler was sending his wife Kristin Cavallari frantic text messages asking for parenting backup. Kristen posted their text conversation on Instagram last Saturday. She wrote ""Pretty hilarious. Ladies, u want your man to appreciate u? Leave them alone with the kids to see what we deal with!""
She was out of town and left Jay to watch over their two children, Camden, 2, and Jaxon, 8. Jay's text conversation went like this,
"Need u home asap.
All hell has broken loose
Jax is in his crib.
Cam refuses to eat.
I'm about to leave"
Kristen Cavallari makes the comments, "I was dying laughing when I got that text - or those text messages - and it's something that every parent can relate to. So I was just laughing my butt off, and I thought it would be hilarious to post it. But I think, you know, I think it's really refreshing for people to see that Jay and I are like everybody else. We go through the same stuff. We actually split our time between Chicago and Nashville, and right now in Nashville we don't have a nanny at all, so we are doing everything ourselves. And I love it because now he gets to see what I get to go through, and he appreciates me a little more. Contrary to what many people think, we don't have a thousand nannies. So with that being said, when I got home from LA 2 days ago this is what I landed to."
Slacker says that is totally acceptable to say, "I was babysitting my own kids." He says that he let his daughter stir the mac and cheese but did not realize that while she was stirring she burned her hand on the pot.
Steve says you cannot babysit your own kids because it is your kids.
Lil' D says that he has injured his kids. He was playing keep away with his daughter and picked her up and did the "dad flip" onto the couch. When he went to flip her off of his shoulders she tucked her knees into her chest so he started flipping her a lot faster un-purposely. He ended up slamming her into the side of the couch. He says she went from laughing to screaming to limping. Lil' D's one year old daughter was limping!
Have you ever had a moment happen when you say, "Don't tell mom!"?
Carole is having a huge dilemma! Her son is dating a gold digger. She says that she has a young son that is in his late teens and he is head over heels fir his girlfriend. Carole says that her son's girlfriend never pays for anything, is very unappreciative, and is now demanding gifts and much more. He buys her clothes, takes her on vacations, and she does not have a job. Carole says that she is not even looking for a job. She says she has brought up her issues with her son and he does not listen. She wants them to break up immediately but does not know how to convince him that his girlfriend is using him.
Slacker says he understand where Carole is coming from but the more Carole pulls one way the more her son will go the opposite just out of rebellion.
Steve says Carole is going to nit-pick any girlfriend her son brings home. He says that Carole's son's girlfriend must be attractive because there is always a price to pay for attractive girls. He thinks that the more she nags the more he will be more inclined to be with his girlfriend.
How can she convince her son to not only see that his girlfriend is a gold digger but to break up with her?
Carole needs to let this one play out. I was dating a guy that my parents' absolutely hated and the more they pushed me to leave him the more it made me gravitate to my boyfriend just out of state of rebellion. He will wise up eventually and leave her.
Today we will explore the afterlife! Comedian Dana Carvey claims that he is haunted by Robin Williams' spirit. He says, "Robin comes to me usually in a lucid dream state or during my meditation. He's as big as life, happy and joking around, and telling me I should never worry about anything because it's all beautiful in the end. Robin supported me when my health was bad, and he still supports me now. Robin's visits were a little spooky at first, but now I look forward to these little visits from my friend. I go to bed with questions I want to ask Robin. I'll think about asking him about my kids' careers and my health. When I wake up, I review those questions. The answers come to me in one of Robin's character voices – it's amazing!" Another story circulating the news is from the famous boy who is the first person recant of visiting Heaven while in a coma in the book, "The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven." Alex Malarkey says, "I did not die. I did not go to Heaven." Alex also says, "I said I went to heaven because I thought it would get me attention. When I made the claims that I did, I had never read the Bible. People have profited from lies, and continue to. They should read the Bible, which is enough. The Bible is the only source of truth. Anything written by man cannot be infallible." He says that he asked God for forgiveness for his deceit and is now geared towards spreading God's word.
Slacker says that he kind of believes in the afterlife. He was raised in the Catholic Church and says that he cannot deny some of the things he has seen. Slacker says that one of his friend's dad had passed away when he was staying in hospice. His friend says that his doorbell rang and he went to the door to see if someone was there, which no one was. After he doorbell ditched his phone rang and it was hospice calling stating that his dad has passed away. He thinks that it was his dad giving him one last message as he as moving towards the afterlife.
Steve says he is a very Biblical guy. He does not believe in an afterlife until the second coming of Jesus. He says he has gotten his ideals from growing up in a strict Catholic home.
Do you believe in the afterlife? If so, have you ever been visited by someone who has passed?
I see spirts almost every day. My house has a few residents that have been removed from this lifetime. I see them walking around my house and some of them are pranksters. I am never afraid and I even talk to them.
Evelyn is a 27 year old woman who has a very weird addition. She is addicted to drinking air freshener. Evelyn's favorite flavor of air freshener is fresh linen. She says that scents like cinnamon does not have a flavor and apple crisp scent tastes like dirt. Evelyn says that her body craves the linen scent freshener. She says, "Not a day where I've not had it." She is married to a "patient man" who accepts her weird addiction though he does think it is unhealthy. He says, "I'm pretty sure it's unhealthy because, if you look at it, it says, 'Flammable." Evelyn is features on TLC's "My Strange Addiction" which airs on Wednesdays at 10p.m. Eastern Time.
Slacker says he cannot even watch TLC's "My Strange Addiction." He thinks that Steve is addicted to his 12 year old self because he collects action figures and eats potted meat. Slacker's addiction was Carmex and he about to fall back into it! He compared himself to a coke head with his old Carmex addiction. Slacker says that when he tried to stop using Carmex his body started going through withdrawals and his lips were as chapped and dry as the Sahara dessert. He now thinks that Burt's Bees is the gateway drug. Slacker thinks that Steve needs some Carmex because his lips are looking a little dry!
Steve says that he would never us someone else's Carmex! He thinks that his addiction is totally normal. Steve's addiction is collecting action figures.
Lil' D was in the producers room putting on Carmex!
What weird addiction do you have?
Every time I eat a saltine cracker I must chew up the cracker, take it out of my mouth, put it in a ball and eat the saliva filled, half-digested cracker. I feel better now that I've gotten that off of my chest!
Hiding money or having secret accounts from your partner is a controversial subject because there are many for and many against it. Shannon thinks her husband is hiding money from her. She says she never sees his paychecks because they are submitted into their account electronically. He pays all the bills and the only handle she gets included on their finances is her weekly allowance from him. She wants advice to catch him hiding money but does not know exactly how to do it. Shannon says that he has a good job but says he says they can never afford anything like trips and upgrades on cars. She has found huge wads of cash in his jackets pockets and the day after finding the cash it is gone he next day. She says she goes to school to further her education so she does not make her own money. Shannon says if she asks him too many questions he gets angry because he is controlling. She almost feels like he has a mistress but that could be her just overthinking she says.
Slacker says that he is uncomfortable that he is so controlling, however, he takes care of all of her needs. He thinks that he is most definitely hiding money. He says she has a right to know where his money is going.
Steve says that having a mistress is extremely likable if their money is disappearing. He says that because she is getting taken care of she almost does not have a right to question where his money is going.
What advice do you have for Shannon?
She needs to get the courage and confront him. Her problems will not change if she does not say something. If I were in her shoes I would do some snooping around his emails and phone.
Hormones or not we have all cried over ridiculous things. There is a video circulating the internet of a pregnant hormonal woman sobbing over her husband sorting vegetables into bags! There is a list of top ten movies that make people cry and number one was Titanic and number two was The Notebook.
Slacker says he is a crier! He says commercials, videos, and the movie Field of Dreams make him cry like a baby! He says he also cries over the popular movie Up because the old man's wife passes away. He thinks The Notebook was stupid and did not make him cry because he knew the old couple was Ally and Noah the entire time and he only watched the movie was because Rachel McAdams was in it. Slacker says that his wife cried over a quesadilla when she was pregnant!
Steve says he never cries and he has only cried a couple times in his lifetime. He says he does not understand why people cry over the Titanic; he did not think it was sad at all, even the part where Jack dies!
Hormonal or not we want to know what is the most ridiculous thing you have cried over?
I am a sucker for crying. I cry over everything. I cry at every wedding. I knew I had a crying problem when I was watching American Idol and one of favorite contestants got voted off! So dumb! It's a just a show!!
A North Carolina couple turned in their two teenage sons into the police after they saw their faces pop up on the news on a video surveillance after robbing a store. The teenagers were caught stealing cell phones and laptops. The parents took their teenager into the police station a couple hours of seeing the footage. The teenagers face multiple charges including breaking and entering and possession of stolen goods.
Slacker says that he would have a hard time drawing the line when it comes to turning in his kids. He says rather than turning in his kids he would give them consequences in his own way. Slacker says he does not think he would turn his child in for murder without hard evidence.
Steve says that he would not turn in his child for a hit and run for a car swipe but he would turn them in if he hit a person. He also would not turn in his child for shoplifting.
Lil' D says he has a family member that has gotten in trouble and he had a family member help them out by hiding them from the cops. He says it was not a big offense but he still had help from his family member. Lil' D says that he would turn in his family member for a murder and even a DUI. He says that you cannot protect them forever.
Have you ever turned in your family members?
I have never turned in a family member and would have an extremely hard time doing so depending on the situation.
Three Gainesville residents recently caught a glimpse of the Florida's penitentiary system after getting caught having sex on the trunk of a car in a McDonalds parking lot. 22 year old, Michael Marin and his partner 23 year old, Anndrea Paulling were arrested after police pulled up while the couple was trying to make their way to his McNuggets. The couple reeked of alcohol and police found a bottle of liquor that had been stashed under the car. While the police were questioning the couple, a third man stumbled out of the car 29 year old, Brandon Majchszak. Brandon did himself no favors, with the appearance and smell of a man who has had way too much to drink police instantly asked to see his driver's license. Unfortunately for Brandon, his license was suspended. All three were arrested. Redneck hook ups don't just happen here in America, a British man recently had to register as a sex offender after attempting to "hook-up" with a mail box. Proving that our friends to the east can have necks just as red as ours.
Slacker feels that first, folks shouldn't order specialty fast food items in the drive-thru. But if he is stuck in the line at the drive-thru waiting for his order he definitely doesn't want to see people hooking up in the parking lot. But if the mood strikes, the mood strikes.
Steve needs his 500 thread count sheets before he can get busy. Although with enough alcohol anything can feel like 500 thread count sheets!
Where's the weirdest place you've tried to get your McNuggets off?
I side with Steve a bit on this particular issue, I need something soft when it is time to do the "deed" so for me the weirdest place I've gotten busy would be in my car on the side of the highway, during ski traffic.
Yi! My friend started dating a girl about a year ago. We all went out for drinks a few weeks ago and I brought a guy from work along. When I got back to work on Monday, my co-worker told me that he knew my buddy's girlfriend from high school but he didn't want to say anything while we were out. The reason that he didn't want to say anything was because when he knew Jessica she was really a Jason. She was the talk of the school and everyone knew he was becoming a girl. I don't know how, but I don't think my friend knows his girlfriend used to be a man. If I were in that situation I would want to know. Should I tell him? -Kevin
Slacker thinks that you have an obligation to tell someone if you are transgendered. He says that he wouldn't want to know if he is happy. Slacker was auditioning for a band and prostitutes were always around the band and all the prostitutes were men.
Steve says that if Slacker knew he was dating a transgender he would want him to tell him. He thinks that Kevin should tell his friend.
Should Kevin tell his friend that he is dating a transgender?
After a year Kevin's friend should be fully aware. I think Kevin should leave the situation at bay.
Joe and Sarah are married and have mutual friends that are also married. The husband of the mutual friends told Joe a secret and he is refraining from telling his wife. Sarah is upset because she thinks he is supposed to tell her everything because they are married. Joe does not want her to slip up and tell the secret because that would make him the loud mouth. Sarah says she has no secrets that she is hiding from Joe and she thought that they told each other everything. She thinks that the big secret is that the mutual friend is cheating. Joe thinks that he should not have to tell because he made a commitment to not tell.
Slacker thinks Joe is stupid because he told Sarah that he had a secret but would not disclose the information. He thinks that even though Joe is wrong for telling her that there was a secret he finds it commendable that he kept the commitment to his friend.
Steve says that if he told Slacker a secret then he would automatically think that Slacker would be telling his wife. Steve can understand Joe's side but can sympathize with Sarah.
Do you have to tell your spouse everything?
Depending on the situation and circumstance, you do not have to tell your spouse everything.
Every single parent on this planet has made some sort of parenting mistake, big or small! According to an article we found a common parenting mistake is blaming your children for your reaction. Another mistake is stating "Ok" at the end of requests and commands to your children.
Slacker says that if Steve had children they would definitely be in therapy. He says that he always makes crazy threats to his children because it is in the heat of the moment. Slacker says that before he and his wife had kids he would always look at other parents and vow to not make their mistakes but they have ended up doing it. He says he has made so many mistakes with his kids because they are picking up all of his bad habits, like his road rage. Slacker also admits to force things onto his kids, like Harry Potter.
Steve is not a parent so he thinks that the mistakes parents make are ridiculous and he thinks he can do better. He says that he learns from all the other parents mistakes and so if he did have kids he would be the number one dad!
Lil' D says that his dad let him watch Silence of the Lamb at age seven. His daughter's first word was the "S" word and that is one of Lil' D's parenting mistakes.
What are your parental mistakes that you or your parents have made?
My mother's parental mistake was being my friend more than a parent because in my teenage years I ran all over her unfortunately and did whatever I wanted to do. That was a phase that was short-lasted fortunately for her. Thank God for my dad being the one to keep me in check and saving her sanity.
A Florida man was caught hiding underneath his ex-girlfriend's house. He had shown up to her house earlier in the night but was told to leave because he was drunk. She called the cops once she heard pounding from her crawl space. She said the two had broken up but he wanted to get back together. The cops charged the Florida man with trespassing. Another Florida incident when a teenage girl woke up to find a classmate standing over her bed while she was asleep. The 17 year old teen woke up in the middle of the night to someone taking off the cover and touching her leg with a flashlight. Once she started to scream the man ran out of her home. She called the cops and was able to identify the suspect through his fingerprints on her leg but he still has not been found yet. The teenage girl said that a week earlier he house key went missing and believed her classmate had taken it.
Slacker says that Steve is going to bring out his Cray-Cray side if Steve talks of a lame artist that he thinks is a good guitarist. He was in an on and off again relationship, and this one time he broke up with her and he went to her apartment and snuck around to make sure she was devastated!
Steve says Slacker had the best stalker attire because he was in a band.
These stories are Cray-Cray! What are your Cray-Cray stories?
My ex- boyfriend cheated on me so I went Cray -Cray after I followed him to the girl's house he was cheating on me with and took a baseball bat to his truck and left him a lovely note. OOPS!
Trisha has been with her boyfriend for the last four and a half years. Over the holidays she and her boyfriend have been talking about getting married. The only thing is Trisha does not have that butterflies in the stomach feeling and she does not know if he is the one. What she wants to do is cheat just once so she can know if her current boyfriend is the one. Trisha has never been with anyone else during their relationship. She thinks that if cheating feels good then she will know her boyfriend is not the guy for her. Trisha has a certain guy in mind that she wants to sleep with and that's one of her coworker.
Slacker says sometimes cheating on your partner after a long period of time can save a relationship. He thinks that if you don't feel bad about even thinking about cheating than there is your answer right there.
Steve says Trisha has only one shot to cheat on her current boyfriend so she cannot waste the opportunity to sleep with someone she does not really want to sleep with. He says, "Cheat on the relationship, to save the relationship." He thinks that if her boyfriend does not find out about her cheating than "no harm, no foul."
Should she do it? Are you in a bad relationship and wish you would have done this?
No she should not do this because she is considering cheating. I completely agree with Slacker. Cheating on someone is never love. She should leave him immediately before he gets any more committed!
It is a task most people hate, except if you are the type of person like Steve. Today we're talking jury duty. Slacker has a friend that is in the pool of jury members that are being selected for duty on the famous Aurora Theater Shooting case!
Slacker has to call in tomorrow for jury duty and is going to do everything to get out of it. He says that he only wants be on jury duty if it is a high profile case like the OJ Simpson case. He wants to find ways to get out of the duty. He says he might carve a swastika onto his forehead, joking of course. He says that if he got on the Aurora Theater Shooting case, the courts would take him away for a long time and he would have to miss the entire radio show. Slacker says the show can be on hold if he is on a murder trial!
Steve says it is an honor to have jury duty! He saw this woman in jury duty that gave the excuse to get out of the case, "Only Jesus can judge" and she got out of it!
What are your crazy jury duty stories or your tips on how to get out of it?
A Tampa woman somehow managed to sneak past security naked to jump on the band at an EDM concert. After she jumped on the band member she was taken away by security. A woman in China caught her husband cheating on her with her twin sister. The cheating husband and sister jumped out of the car naked in the parking lot. The wife jumped in the car and drove away in their car with their clothes. Being naked in public is always a good time, unless you get caught cheating!
Slacker was in a rooftop pool skinny dipping and the hotel security came. He tried to sneak out of the hotel rooftop through a door that locked immediately once closed. He had to make the waddle back to his hotel room completely naked.
Steve says, "If you're going to sleep with your wife's twin make sure she is fraternal!"
What is your "I ended up naked in public" story?
I was skinny dipping, already naked in public. The cops came and I tried running from the cops naked. They obviously caught up to me and we had to have our whole discussion with me naked. I got away with trespassing though without indecent exposure charges.
Kelly is in her 20's and is frequently dating men around her age range. She says that she can never get passed the second date with anyone. The men Kelly dates always give the excuse, "It's not you, it's me." Kelly's girlfriends are all in long term relationships so they cannot give her valuable information on what is going on. She has slept with a few of the men she has dated short term. Kelly is starting to think she is the problem but she does not know why because she does not think she has any weird habits. She is looking for a long term relationship.
Slacker says is someone says, "It's not you, it's me" it is always a cop out. He thinks that Kelly is desperate and that her desperation attitude is coming out on her dates.
Steve says he does not look down on women for sleeping with their partners too soon.
What advice do you have for Kelly?
I think Kelly should go on a dating website because they can generally match people up perfectly.
Many couples have relationship rules for one another, maybe rules regarding money or going out with the guys. Slacker and Steve know this couple that has a major relationship rule. The wife trained her husband how to use the bathroom. She was tired of the extra dribble on the toilet seat so her rules for him are; he must sit and pat dry his manhood after his business is done.
Slacker says that every man has a problem with dribbling on the toilet seat. He says that he only sits down to use the bathroom in the middle of the night o he does not wake his wife up. Slacker had an ex-girlfriend that would not let him wear socks in bed because she was afraid of cotton touching cotton. He says he has one rule and that is he does not like women wearing comfortable shows like Keds because it makes them look older.
Steve says that he understands the wife's need to teach her husband how to use the bathroom because he thinks dribble is disgusting. He says that when you use a public bathroom there is always a puddle of men's urine and it is horrible to stand in. Steve says that he would make Slacker's ex-girlfriend wear socks because he has a "foot problem" according to Slacker.
What rules do you have in your relationship?
My boyfriend squeegees the shower after every time he takes a shower and forces me to squeegee after I get out of the shower. I think it is ridiculous. He does not know it yet but I am going to make it a rule that he stops immediately. I doubt it happens, but I'll give it a shot.
It's that time for Drunk or Kid! You tell us your stories f when you were drunk or too young to not know any better and we will guess which one you were!
First story: What better way to spend the weekend on a ski trip? So I decide to start messing around on the ski lift. I fall 18 feet off the lift on an area that had no snow.
Slacker says drunk because he drinks a ton when he skis.
Steve says kid.
Second story: I'm in a car sitting in the passenger seat and I have to pee badly. So I decide to roll down the window and pee out of it while the car is in motion. The driver reaches across to pull me back in the window and slams the car in a barricade.
Slacker says kid because when you are drunk you can stop yourself from peeing but kids cannot. Once they start they cannot stop.
Steve says obviously this is a drunken person because the kid would not get that far if his parents were in the car.
Liz is concerned but conflicted. Her friend's family member was visiting from out of town and Liz thought she was acting strange. She would disappear for an hour at a time even at dinner when she was invited over. Liz thinks she may be a drug addict but is not exactly sure. She said that when she would come back from disappearing she just had that look. Liz is pretty confident she was shooting drugs like heroin rather than powder substances. She wants to tell her friend about her family member but does not want to over step the boundaries.
Slacker says he is a person who believes that someone has to step in and confront issues if no one else notices. He says, "This could save this woman's life by saying something." Slacker does not know what Liz should do.
Steve proposes the question, "Even if you are sure that she has a drug problem is it still your place to say something?" He says he does not believe in "ratting out" someone.
Should Liz tell her friend or is that over stepping the boundary?
I think Liz should say something because being a drug addict is obviously a serious problem. If an individual suspects drug activity they are usually right. Tell the friend!
Actress Gaby Hoffman gave birth to her baby in November and for the past three months she has been eating her placenta by adding it to smoothies. She says the consumption of her placenta gives her an extra energy boost and milk supply boost. Gaby states, "I made smoothies out of it for three weeks. I had a home birth, so my midwife and my doula took it and cut it up into 20 pieces and froze it, and every day, I put it in a blender with strawberries and blueberries and guava juice and a banana, and I drank that [stuff] up." A 16 year-old boy in Bangladesh was rushed to the hospital after consuming a live eel. The boy caught the eel on a fishing trip and placed the eel between his teeth. He finally swallowed the eel after trying to catch another one. The eel was moving around in his stomach before being removed by doctors with forceps. The teen is expected to make a full recovery.
Slacker asks Steve, "Have you eaten head cheese?" Steve says, "Yes!" Slacker thinks that a nice cabernet would go well with the placenta. He says he found a placenta lasagna recipe so be weary eating lasagna at friend's houses that just had a baby.
Steve says the eating head cheese is an acquired taste but it tastes good. He also says that he consumed liver sausage. Steve thinks that eating placenta has great health benefits but rather than putting it in a smoothie he would put it in a Blizzard! He says that placenta is the new kale!
What is the weirdest think you have ever eaten?
When I was in Greenland I consumed whale, which is completely legal there. It was nasty. It tasted like a steak that came out of the ocean. Weirdest thing! The reindeer was good though however. Willy was definitely not free on that day, neither was Rudolf.
Mike Fountaine lives in Allentown, Pennsylvania. His home looks normal from the outside but once you head inside you will be overwhelmed and taken back his enormous McDonald's collection. He has been collecting McDonald's memorabilia since he started working at McDonalds in 1968. His weird collection takes up over 7,000 square inches in his house. Mike says, "This collection means everything to me, it is my life's work. Thousands and thousands of hours have been spent assembling this collection and taking pride to display it extremely nicely. I'm very proud to be a part of the McDonald's family. We have a saying here, that when you love the business that you have 'ketchup in your veins', which I certainly do. I built the barn to help house the happy meal collection from 2005 to the present day as well as other pieces. I also have a room containing more than 1,000 McDonald's cups and glasses from throughout its history. In total my collection takes up around 7,000 square-feet on my property."
Slacker thinks that people who collect My Little Ponies are the weirdest. He says he never got into the My Little Pony fad. Slacker says his mom collects brass and he collects thimbles.
Steve loves the McDonalds collector; he thinks all of his items are really cool. Steve has a collection of action figures. He also says he has the bill from The Last Supper.
What are your weird collections?
I collect Barbie's and Disney snow globes. My parents started me off with my collection so I have started collecting things like that ever since. My collection is not weird, it's freaking awesome!!
A woman in Houston bites a one year old in hopes of teaching him a lesson. She bit the child because he bit her first. She was arrested and charged on injury to a child. A man took his kids to Home Depot while he robbed the store! He was found a short time later and was taken into custody. A babysitter had an argument with her employer's pre-teens. After the argument a couple days later she decided to burn the house down. She was caught on camera going into their house when they were out of town. She is pleading not guilty to the charges.
Slacker says he is not good with calling random people on the internet to come babysit his kids. He says he wants to be a nanny because that is a step up from being a babysitter and they get paid more.
Steve says his babysitter taught him to be a "man!"
What bad babysitter stories do you have?
I had a terrible babysitter that spanked me for everything or left me in a room all alone for at least an hour. One time we were out and I bumped my head on a car mirror and she spanked me for it. She even broke a ping pong paddle over my brother's butt!
Yi, My fiancé and I are planning our wedding and we're having a major disagreement about having kids there. He has a really big family and wants to invite everyone and all their kids. He wants to make it "cool for the kids" by getting a clown, a face painter, and a jumpy castle to have at our reception. I love his family, but this is my day and I don't want a bunch of kids running around on sugar highs screaming their faces off. I also don't want to look back at my pictures and see a giant bouncy castle in the background of half of them. I've tried telling him and he says that his family will feel excluded if the kids aren't invited. How do I convince everyone that this is a day better suited for adults? -Aubrey
Slacker says that going to a wedding without your kids means hiring a babysitter and getting a wedding present for the newlyweds. He thinks that is too expensive of a day. Slacker thinks Aubrey is being melodramatic by thinking the jumpy castle is going to be in her pictures. He thinks having a jumpy castle is a good thing because it keeps them outside and busy. Slacker has a real problem being forced to choose his wedding over something else. He says he will always pick his children over anything else.
Steve thinks Aubrey makes good points because children ruin weddings. Steve says before Slacker got married he had a no kid rule for his first wedding so Steve thinks he is being hypocritical. Slacker claims, "His wedding was too big for children."
How does Aubrey convince everyone that her wedding day should be kid-less?
She needs to invite the kids or not invite their parents to her wedding. She will not convince a man with a big family to not have kids at their wedding, it is basically a must to keep the family from quarrel.
Jonathan is going to graduate in two years and when he graduates he wants to move to Europe and teach English to children. It has always been a dream to him since high school. He has been with his girlfriend Marie for about two years and she has been aware of his dream since six months into their relationship. She does not want to travel or live anywhere else and is considering breaking up with Jonathan because she does not want to get any more involved in their relationship. She loves him but she thinks waiting another two years will make things harder. She says that if Jonathan did not want to go to Spain she would stay. Johnathan is completely against breaking up because he wants to wait and see how things go because she could change her mind. Marie does not want to hold him back but Johnathan thinks a lot can change in two years.
Slacker asks Marie, "Do you have a dog?" and she responds, "Not currently." Slacker says, "If you did have a dog, knowing it would die at some point, why would you not just euthanize it now?" He related that questioning to her relationship with Johnathan, in explaining that she would not kill her dog so she should not kill the relationship. Slacker says he understands Marie because it is logical however he can understand Jonathan's side as well.
Steve says he agrees with Marie because he said it is like "ripping of a Band-Aid" you just have to do it.
Should they stay together or break up?
I think they should stay together if they love each other as much as they say they do. Love will always find a way.
John Wines purchased a scratch lottery ticket at a gas station in December in Roswell, New Mexico. John thought he won 500,000 dollars and when he went to turn in the ticket he was told the ticket was misprinted and the maximum prize was 250,000 dollars. He was told he would not receive the money because they do not pay off people with misprinted tickets. John is obviously furious and says, "I took it back in and she told me that is not a winner. They told me that it was a misprint and they don't pay off for misprints. There's a one right here for $250,000. Right below that is another one and it's a $250,000 winner. I mean, if you thought you won $500,000 and somebody tells you that you didn't't, and you can prove to them you did, it's pretty stressful for somebody to say, 'no you are not getting your money'. If it was $50 or $75, I would not think a thing about it. But this is $500,000. That's a half million. It's like I told them, I didn't't misprint it. I bought the ticket in good faith thinking if I won I was going to get my money. And they told me no, they absolutely, positively told me no."
Slacker says that he should absolutely get the money even though there is a disclaimer on the back of the scratch ticket.
Steve says he should get the money because people cannot just put signs on something like "Stay back 500 feet. Rocks may hit windshield." and get away with it.
You be the judge! Should John get his money?
I think he should or at least the maximum prize because New Mexico Lottery was dumb enough not to check the tickets. If you are dealing with the lottery and are not double checking the tickets you automatically are getting the hopes up of that scratch ticket purchaser.
A man in Chicago super glued his hands to his privates. He and his wife were having relations when he reached for some lubricant and accidently grabbed the super glue. The hospital doctor stated, "This was a large amount of skin that was affixed together. There wasn't just a small amount of glue. It wasn't just one finger. It was, in fact, his entire palm and all his fingers, which were tightly affixed to his genitals." They were able to separate the man from his manhood. A woman in England was having relations with her man and was obviously having a good time. Her neighbors called the cops for having sex too loudly. She spent 12 weeks in jail for the crime!
Slacker asks how he could mistake the lube for the super-glue because the applicators are nowhere near the same. He thinks this story is bull because super-glue does not set up that fast. Slacker says he remembers a caller who called and said that when they were having relations they realized that their dog was actively participating. He knows a girl that was dating a guy who had a "roll-call" of girls names tattooed all over his body and she found that out when she was about to have relations with him.
Steve says the lube and the super-glue does not smell the same and they have different "flavors."
What are your stories that have "ruined the moment?"
Carly just got engaged over the holidays to the man of her dreams who makes six figures a year. She is excited about her engagement but she is heavily disappointed in her ring. She says, "It is so small that the band eats the diamond." She says she wants a "comfortable life." Carly made it clear to her now fiancé that she is to be treated like a princess. Once her fiancé gave her the ring she told him that he needed to fix this stat. She is about to call off her relationship because he has not bought her a bigger ring. She guesses that she loves him. She says, "She is a hot commodity and deserves a high lifestyle."
Slacker says that Carly is acting abrasive and that no one is going to feel sorry for her. He thinks that she is acting like a "B!" Slacker thinks that maybe this could be a test to her fiancé about how much she actually loves him.
Steve asks Carly, "Are you sure it is not an heirloom?" Carly says, "No because he went to the jewelry store with her friend." Steve says clearly this relationship is not about the marriage but this is all about the paycheck.
How can she get her fiancé to get her a bigger ring?
Carly needs to go date a Hugh Hefner that does not care about her but will give her everything in the world. She needs stop trying to encourage her fiancé to buy her a bigger ring. She clearly does not love him or respect him. She needs to leave him… ASAP!!!
A 44 year old New Zealand woman suffered paralysis and a stroke from a damaged artery due to a hickey! She was sent to the hospital and made a full recovery. There is such a thing called the nose blowers fracture! A 20 year old woman blew her nose so hard that the pressure had blasted air through her skull and found its way into her chest cavity. A 69 year old man had the same occurrence except the pressure damaged a small rupture in his heart and caused his blood pressure to rise which left him having stroke like symptoms. There is also a condition called sheet fitting palsy which doctors have found that repeatedly trying to pull a fitted sheet over your bed can cause blood clots due to the flexing of the wrist. The blood clots can lead to numbness and weakness in the hands. PlayStation palms another condition that can cause damage to one's hands. Playing games for too long can cause a skin disorder of small bumps and sore lumps. A 63-year-old hula hooping woman suffered a slipped disc in her spine, which had to be removed by emergency surgery. Similar "hula hoop" cases led to back spasms and ruptured abdominal muscles.
Slacker says that he can relate to the sheet fitting palsy condition because he says he spends forever trying to fit his sheets onto his bed. He says that he is the hula hoop king!
Steve blew his nose and swears he fractured something! He says that if you are bad at hula hooping than you are bad in bed!
The common saying is giving is better than receiving until you received a bad gift! Here are the top ten worst Christmas presents:
2. Any gift that has anything remotely to do with cleaning the house – just don’t do it. Nobody wants your sexist scrub brush. You know who you are!
4. Self-help books, exercise books, diet books.
5. Don’t show up at Christmas with a package of bacon or bacon-flavored vodka, or bacon soap, or bacon lubricant (yes there is such a thing), in fact, anything remotely to do with bacon, keep it in your fridge … or bedroom for that matter, where it belongs. No bacon for Christmas!
6. This one is for the re-gifters out there – yes, your presents are terrible if only because they are utterly thoughtless. We know some people wait until the very last minute to buy their gifts but its still no excuse. It is after all Christmas, pretending to care is what the holidays are all about.
7. Apparently giving marijuana-related gifts is a thing now. Unless your loved one appreciates this kind of thing, don’t try and convince yourself that your boss would just love a new bong for Christmas. Its a dumb idea and sure way to lose your job too.
9. Magazine subscriptions
10. I couldn’t decide which one more terrible to give for Christmas, bathroom accessories, like a weight scale, or sex toys. But since they’re equally horrible ideas in any case, they deserve a spot on our top ten list (and both gifts are inexplicably worse if they are given to you by your grandmother).
Slacker says do you give presents or gifts? He says a gift is for no reason but presents are designated for certain days. Slacker says he has a horrible time with gifts. He gave his girlfriend a promise ring with a diamond and she got him a pick hair brush. He says a pick hair brush would have never worked for his hair. He says if you are going to buy anyone a present for Christmas to not buy them an appliance unless it is a chef. Slacker says he got re-gifted a waffle iron and he knew because there was still batter in the iron.
Steve says he grew up with presents. He says you can never go wrong with giving cash for the holidays. Steve says he had a coworker who was given a new bottle of wine and gifted it to another employee saying to her, “I went all the way to Italy to get this. I know the vineyard owner.” He says that guy is a tool!
What is the worst gift you have received?
I received an electronic hair removal system. That said nothing but “Merry Christmas you’re hairy… now shave!”
Natalie 23 years old and is dating a virgin who she has been with for almost a year. Natalie has had relations before him. He says he is ready to lose his virginity to her but every time they even get close to having relations he stops immediately. Natalie says her boyfriend jut turns away. She does not believe he still has v-card for religious reasons but just because it has just never happened. She is wondering if he is nervous or if he has a problem. Natalie has no idea how to communicate with him about the subject.
Slacker asks, “He is straight right?” He says he does not know how to help Natalie. He says there are two paths she can approach this with, she can be aggressive and take his virginity or she can be timid in the bed with him as well, and really dumb down the actions of relations. Slacker asks, “If he has a psychological barrier how can he be prepared for this?”
Steve says, “It’s you Natalie” jokingly, of course. He says he is out of reasons why her boyfriend is not sleeping with her. Steve says that if she acts aggressive towards him it can just be over with for him.
What can Natalie do to ease his fears of losing his virginity?
I think Natalie needs to wait until he is completely ready and if she cannot handle the situation and the life of celibacy then she needs to leave him.
Today we are talking about dream! Our dream expert Lauri Loewenberg is coming live on air with us to decipher all of your crazy dreams! Lauri studied dream psychology and became a certified Dream Analyst. As a child she kept a dream journal and one night her grandfather visited her in her dreams and gave her a life altering message and from there on she decided we can find the answer to everything in our dreams. Lauri has written many books and has been featured in magazines, radio talk shows, and on television.
Slacker says he was going to buy Lauri’s new book Dream On It for her for Christmas! Lauri tells Slacker that he is not giving himself enough credit in his life due to his dream of him fearing of not passing high school.
Steve says this is too easy and he should be a dream expert.
What is the craziest dream you have ever had?
One night I had the flu and was on some heavy antibiotics and medications. I was half asleep but it felt like I was fully asleep. I was dreaming that two men were trying to kill my family and I while trying to bomb our house. They tried to capture me but I ran into the bathroom (literally) I thought they were coming after me. I tried to break through my window but the window would not open. I was balling and decided to get enough courage to go find the rest of my family in the house and once I found them I was out of the dream realm. I might have been hallucinating from all the drugs because it felt too realistic.
Australian woman is trying to ban a favorite holiday tradition. What is it? Sitting on Santa’s lap! Hetty Johnson claims that sitting on Santa Claus’ lap is inappropriate ad she is pushing for shopping centers around the world to take pictures with the children standing next to Old Dt. Nick unless the parents request for their child to sit on his lap. Jenna McCarthy, mother of two, states, I wouldn't force her to be held by a random stranger so Santa is no different to me. I can understand the fear. We hype up Christmas so much and we give kids the idea that Santa isn't a stranger. What if they come across someone outside the shopping center dressed as a Santa?" A current mall Santa, Mark Overell, who has been a Santa for more than 20 years says, this idea is “silly” because all mall Santas go through extensive background checks and "are trained to do everything by the book." He thinks banning sitting on Santa's lap is extreme.” David Chalke completely agrees with Mark. David says, "Surely it’s better to teach children to recognize and report inappropriate behavior if it occurs than to issue a needlessly draconian blanket ban on any human contact – just in case."
Slacker says his parents would make him hug strangers. He says he understands because people are getting creepier and creepier. Slacker thinks that it might be better if kids do not make any contact with Santa even though it is not the tradition.
Steve says he understands where she is coming at as a mom. He says if kids get used to sitting on Santa’s lap who is a stranger then they will be comfortable to sitting on other stranger’s laps.
Lil’ D’s said there is no “stranger danger” with his daughter. His daughter motioned to the waitress at a restaurant to pick her up and the waitress did without asking. Lil’ D says that was a boundary because you do not pick up a stranger’s child. He said he feels violated. Lil’ D says there is not a danger with sitting on Santa’s lap. He has an issue if you force your child to sit on Santa’s lap.
What do you think about this?
This is absolutely ridiculous! I never once got touched inappropriately by a mall Santa and I know my parents were never concerned about that. It is a holiday tradition and it should be continued. If the parent is standing there watching their child sit on Santa’s lap and get a picture taken all in 30 seconds when would Santa get time to act inappropriately? He wouldn’t. I am sure there are some cases but the tradition of mall Santa Claus’ should not be banned.
The popular recording artist Lorde admitted to an embarrassing secret… she absolutely loves dumpster diving or in her terms “trawling the in-organics.” Lorde says, "It stays on the street for a few days and then it's collected and put into a landfill somewhere, but people drive around and go through other people's household rubbish. And, honestly, I've gotten amazing furniture, shoes, hats, jackets… I did this three weeks ago! I'm recognized every single time. It's so embarrassing!"
Slacker says he knows of a family from Extreme Cheapskates on TLC that celebrates Christmas day on Christmas 28th because everything is on sale. He says a certain employee would bring an empty tuber ware to work every day and he caught her filing up food from the scraps. Slacker says that he bought an expensive bottle of wine and enjoyed that and the more expensive the wine is you have to let is air out. Slacker kept the bottle of expensive wine and replaced it with cheap bottle of wine for parties. He says, “You have to fill their glasses out of their view.” Slacker knows a family that would reuse napkins again and again.
Steve says that Slacker is a cheapskate! He thinks celebrating Christmas on the 28th is extremely smart and frugal. Steve says, “Thank God I drink beer over at your house Slacker.”
Tell us your stories about the biggest cheapskates you know!
I secretly hoard hotel items and use them for everything.
Yi! I have a little problem that I could use some advice on. I have suffered from back pain for the last 5 years and as a result, I get weekly massages to help manage the issue. My wife knows about it and everything has been fine until yesterday’s massage. The girl who usually does my massage called in sick and her replacement asked me if I have ever tried a New-roo (sp?) massage. I said that I’m willing to try anything and the session began. It started of normal and then I realized that she wasn’t wearing clothes and was actually massaging me with her body. After a few minutes, she asked me if I wanted to turn over and I said no and it was awkward for a couple more minutes and then she told me that our time was up. So here is the problem. If I tell my wife what happened, she will probably not be as cool about my weekly massages anymore. I don’t want to lie to her, but nothing happened, so why do I have to tell her anything? I really need the “normal” massages every week and I don’t want it to be a big deal. -Ryan
Slacker says he and Steve should hold off on this OPP until tomorrow to go get massages so they can fully understand the situation. He asks, “Was that on the menu?” Slacker think this was not at a clinical massage place because the masseuse offered that and that it must have been a hybrid parlor. He says he never gets hit on because everyone knows he is married but his wife gets hit on constantly and she tells him and he respects her for that.
Steve says he needs to tell his wife because a lie is more important to a woman than a naked massage. He says that Ryan needs to sound as innocent as possible when explaining the situation to his wife.
Lil’ D says that he googled a “nu-ru” massage and everything that comes up is XXX.
Should he tell his wife? What do you think?
I think Ryan should definitely tell his wife. I know that I would want to know that information. If my husband told me that information I would just make him go to a new massage parlor after I confronted the masseuse.
Seth and Connie’s son just received his third DUI and also got charged with breaking and entering. Their son was living by himself, but now he is currently living with them. Seth does not want him in the house at all because he has not shown them the respect. He thinks that during the holidays is a perfect time to kick his son out to show their son just exactly how important his family is. Connie agrees that he should not live at the house anymore however she does not want to kick him out of the house during the holidays. She said they need to show him love because it is the holidays. Seth says they have helped him out time and time again and nothing is changing. Connie says they need to pick a date after Christmas to have him move out. Connie thinks maybe their son just needs some counseling. Seth says their son’s court ordered counseling did not do anything. Connie is having her son over for Christmas no matter what anyone says.
Slacker asks is tough love better? He does not have a side but he keeps hearing in his head, “But it is Christmas.” He loves Christmas so much that he could not kick his own children out during the holidays.
Steve tells Seth, “Turning your back is not helping anything.” He is on Seth’s side because their son is using them and Connie is just making excuses. Steve says that he used to be that kid so he understands exactly where Seth and Connie stand with their son.
Whose side are you on?
I am on Connie’s side because you cannot abandon your blood ever, especially on the holidays. Seth and Connie need to force their son into a treatment plan and plan a set date to do so. They should be discussing rehab plans with him now so he is prepared for the set date and if he stays then he wants the help if he leaves let him go, just do not let him back into the house if he does not go to rehab.
Slacker says, “All current pregnant women please do not name your kids after Frozen characters!” His daughter’s middle name is Ana, named after his wife’s grandmother. On the birth certificate Slacker and his wife spelled her middle name incorrectly. He says, “At least her name is not Elsa.” Slacker thinks in 20 years that there are going to be 400 wedding announcements for Elsa.
Steve thinks that the name Olaf is pretty for a girl’s name.
Lil’ D named his little boy Easton after hockey sticks and baseball bats.
What are the worst baby names you know of?
Cooper, rhymes with pooper. My dog’s name is Cooper and she is a pooper.
A Florida woman was arrested after but dialing 911 and accidently admitting to stealing. She was telling her get-away driver to drive “normal” because she had just stolen numerous items. The call lasted 18 minutes and the cops tracked her down and put her under arrest. The driver was not arrested. An Arkansas man accidently dialed the person he wanted to kill while talking to a hit-man. The phone call lasted about an hour and a half and after the victim heard part of the phone call he contacted the police. The 68 year old man was arrested for conspiracy to commit murder. A Tennessee man was arrested after butt dialing 911 after discussing that he wanted to buy drugs. The cops tracked the phone call and found the suspect at a restaurant. Cops found a bag of pot and a pipe. He was arrested for possession. According to the FCC half of 911 calls are butt dials.
Slacker says he hangs up rather quickly when he sees he is being butt dialed except for when Steve does it because he is always wondering what he is doing.
Steve says he does not know how to butt dial therefore he does not do it.
Has a butt dial ever gotten you into hot water?
I ruined a surprise party because I butt dialed the person who the party was for. I was disclosing all the details with this man’s wife and in my pocket was him listening to the entire thing. OOPS!
Leslie just went through a bad break up so she did what some women choose to do immediately… call the ex! She contacted her high school sweetheart that still currently lives in her hometown. They have been talking for the past two weeks. He says he is married but he and his wife are getting a divorce they are just waiting until after the holidays. He swears it is over between him and his wife. Leslie is going home for Christmas and her high school sweetheart wants to see her. She thinks this could end in a fairytale.
Slacker says it seems like Leslie is going to see him either way depending on what everyone says. He tells her that most guys say their marriage is over to hook up with girls. Slacker thinks she should wait until he actually gets a divorce or go find a new guy.
Steve says he is a bit of a “loser” because he never left his hometown. Lil’ D’s father reconnected with his high school sweetheart and they are completely happy. Steve says it could work out. Steve says move on and find someone new.
What should she do?
She should absolutely not see him for one reason, he’s married. She should wait until his wife has moved out of the house, and they are getting paperwork completed for a divorce. Leslie does not want to be a home wrecker even though their marriage is ending. He could be lying to Leslie as well and just saying the marriage is over just to have “relations” with her while she is in town. She needs to wait and see how to situation turns out.
Victoria Walker and her husband were just about to string up their Christmas lights when hours earlier Victoria purchased an old tool box from an estate sale that she thought her husband would enjoy. When the two opened the tool box they were expecting old rusty tools; come to find it, it was globs of a green glowing substance that said “RADIATION POISINING. DISPOSE BY BURIAL.” The couple called the non-emergency line and firefighters came out to their location. The firefighters accidently gave them the wrong reading by thinking the couple had come into contact with a very dangerous amount of radiation but once they were tested once more the reading came back that the contact with the radiation would not be enough to make them sick. An individual from the state came to get the radiation. The Walker family thinks this is a great story to tell everyone over the holidays! A family in South Carolina had a confrontation with the police when the police had to break up their family fight. The family was fighting about how to decorate their Christmas tree! Nobody pressed charges and no one arrested. We also found a list of procedure steps to take when hanging up Christmas lights. Here’s the list!
Keep the ladder on secure and level ground before stepping onto it.
Place the base of the ladder one foot away from the wall for every four feet it extends up.
Stay centered on the rungs of the ladder and keep both feet on the ladder at all times; if you need to reach something to the right or left of you, move the ladder.
Never stand on the top two rungs of the ladder.
To reach a roof, extend the ladder at least three feet beyond the roof’s edge.
Keep the area clear around the top and bottom of the ladder.
When using a step ladder, make sure it is locked open securely and never use a folding step ladder when it is closed.
Use the buddy system when climbing a ladder or onto a roof. Have one adult at the bottom of the ladder holding it steady while the other person is on it.
Slacker says ham is only for Easter not for Christmas or Thanksgiving! Slacker knows someone that was putting lights up on the roof and was getting really close to the edge. In order to keep himself from falling he flung himself back and he fell into an air-hole and impaled himself in his other hole!
Steve says he knows all about remodeling and can tell you all about air-holes on your roof.
How have you gotten hurt during the holidays?
I have gotten hurt numerous times during the holiday season. December is a huge party and gathering month for my family and I. We drink a lot during this time of year and there seems to always be a mishap of some sort. Last year I drank way too much “egg nog” and fell down the stairs.
Billy Bob is very dependent on his mom and talks to her about every aspect of his life. He’s become very reliant on her psychic abilities, and has her give readings on every little thing. Whether it be Connie, his children, or even acting gigs. Before boarding a plane, he calls mom to make sure nothing will go wrong! If she doesn’t think it will be okay, or if he doesn’t get ahold of her, he won’t board!
Slacker said one of the most popular games you can buy for Christmas is an Ouija board. He had one once and fully believes in them! When he used his cousin’s board back in the day, it was actually pretty scary. It seemed like it was even made out of bone or something. Nowadays the Ouija boards are like a sticker on cardboard, lame! A flight name was changed after a psychic said that flight was doomed. That same psychic that said the flight would crash also predicated other things in the past and they were all correct.
Steve says Ouija boards are the biggest bunk! It doesn’t work unless you psychically move it! They don’t do anything cool on their own!
Have you ever been to a psychic whose predictions or readings were dead-on? Have you ever been to a psychic who was dead wrong?
I totally believe in psychics! This is exactly why I never would want to go to one because I don’t want to know what’s coming!
A man sitting behind a woman who looked eight months pregnant at a football game saw her texting another man. She was saying things like, “I’ll see you as soon as I’m done with him.” “I wish I was with you all day.” Every time her man would put his arm around her or lean in to talk to her, she’d hide her phone. He couldn’t help it; he wrote the boyfriend a note to let him know what was going on and gave it to him after the game. He has no idea what has happened since but he feels good knowing he said something!
Slacker says if anyone is going to read someone’s texts or read over their shoulder, Steve would be the one! He’s become a pro at it now. Slacker says what if she’s pregnant with that other dudes child and now her man at the game!? Slacker has been caught cheating by a huge family gathering. He wants everyone to learn from him, don’t cheat near your birthday!
Steve says if someone is holding up their phone right in my face, of course he’ll read it! Anyone would! This guy was trying to just mind his own business and she involved him! Steve hid in the basement once when he was cheating and was never caught!
Have you ever busted someone cheating? Been cheated on? What’s your cheating story?!
I’ve seen way too many people in my life be cheated on. I have never and could never do it. Just leave if you aren’t satisfied! It ruins people. Karma will come back to bite.
The child/step-parent dynamic can be a difficult situation to work out...especially if they both feel differently about each other. Today's OPP comes from a young girl that is trying to figure out her relationship with the man her mother married.
My mom married Dan when I was 5. I'm 16 now and I think of him as my dad. He's been around me pretty much my whole life and my real dad hasn't. I pretty much think of Dan as my dad. It really makes upsets me because I don't think he thinks of me as his daughter. If I ever call him dad to somebody else he always corrects me and says step-dad. When I ask him if I'm allowed to do something he says "I'm not your dad go ask your mom". Why wouldn't he want me to call him my dad after him and my mom have been married for so long? Did I maybe do something to make him not like me?
Slacker says this is a sad OPP for him to do. He hasn’t ever had to try and blend a family. If his wife and he were to split up, he wouldn’t be happy with his kids calling another man dad. He would have his step-kids call him step-dad just out of respect for the real father in their life. Ashley doesn’t have like a real dad though, so now he’s unsure what to say. This breaks his heart. Just like you can’t force a step-child to call you mom or dad, she can’t force him to let her call him dad.
Steve doesn’t understand what it could be since the step-dad has been in her life for an entire 11 years. He wonders if Dan would like to be called, “Daddy #2” or something.
What advice do you have for Ashley?
Maybe it’s just uncomfortable for the step-dad. My mom re-married a little longer than year ago and I would never call him dad. I would never even call him step-dad. It’s weird and pointless, it’s just a title. I call him my mom’s dude or by his name, Ray. He treats me just like my real dad does and we’re very close but the fact of the matter is, he’s not my dad. As long as Dan is treating Ashley with respect and does “dad things” then she might just have to let it go.
A woman's parents died in a plane crash 55 years ago. In 1997, a hiker was walking around the site of the plane crash and found a wedding ring. After doing some research, he tracked down the daughter of the couple who passed, and returned to her, her mother’s ring! The rightful owner. Another man had donated a Christmas gift to a girl in the Philippians with his name and picture inside. This was back in 2000, years later, she found him on Facebook; they hit it off, and are now married!
Slacker says we over use the word “incredible” nowadays. He remembers when he was younger, his parents would watch a show called, “That’s Incredible!” They would have someone on there about once a week doing something actually incredible! Once a guy had built a 2x2x2x2 tiny glass box and he could fold himself to fit inside and close it! At the end of every stunt, a Tom Cruise lookalike would yell, “That’s incredible!”
Steve doesn’t think we’ve said, “That’s incredible” enough yet!
What’s your absolutely incredible story?
I get to intern for Slacker, Steve, and Lil D. Pretty incredible!
Whether it's ABC Family, Lifetime, or Hallmark, made-for-TV holiday movies are an unavoidable part of the season. They are on, repeating over and over in their sugary sweetness, from Thanksgiving until New Year's! Obviously, people love them – because more and more new ones keep popping up every year.
Slacker wants to admit something... He's having a hard time this year to get into the Christmas spirit. He has two little children now! He's trying to put up the lights and all he thinks about is how much of a pain it will be to take them down. He needs help getting kicked into the spirit! This past weekend, his kids went to Netflix and pulled up Frosty! But not the real Frosty, the 3rd movie and it was the worst thing he's ever seen. He wants that time back!
Steve watched Santa Clause is Coming to Town recently. Steve says Slacker only likes the black and white holiday movies. Fred Claus is the movie for Slacker!! It has his girl in it so he will be in the spirit soon!
Lil D says Love Actually just makes you want to hug people at the airport! It's not a Christmas movie but it happens around Christmas time.
It's office party season, when you can destroy your marriage and career in one single night! Some companies are making employees sign release forms for the amount of alcohol served, sexual harassment, and they don’t want to be responsible for divorces that may occur! If you’re thinking about quitting, why not wait for the party and go out with a bang!?
Slacker asks if it’s too stereotypical to say office parties are the cause for problems. Slacker says janitors closet are the most common place for people to get it on during the party. Pushing someone up against the brooms is hot for some people. Slacker says when they were in their old building, it was almost normal for people to be on the conference table just going for it.
Steve has hooked up in the work place but not actually during the office party. He remembers one about four or five years ago. They had a female coworker who was married and a male coworker who is also married that just started making out!
Lil D had a friend who was drinking a crap ton of red wine at her office party and the boss invited everyone over to his house to continue drinking. She ended up throwing up RED wine all over his house and had to clean it herself the next morning.
What happened at your out-of-control office party?
I haven’t gone to my holiday party once in all four years of working at Texas Roadhouse… Oops.
