DO NOT hire Jose Lopez! He showed up to an interview in California drunk and decided to stab a man in the office when he did not get the job. He pulled out a knife and stabbed the man in the arm. He fled the scene but unfortunantly for him he left his resume which had his full name and address on it. He was charged with assault with a deadly weapon. The employer was treated at the local hospital and made a full recovery. A man in Georgia was attached with a knife in the chest but luckily he had his cell phone in his front pocket and way saved. The victim was taking out the trash and the suspect demanded him for cigarettes and money which led to the potential stabbing. The victim called 911 but the suspect ran and fled police. A stripper in South Carolina stabbed her coworker in the head with her plastic stripper heel in the bathroom. The victim was beaten in the head and was stabbed which led to stiches and stables, a black eye, and a swollen forehead. The stripper was arrested for assault and was put on bond for 5,000 dollars. A man in Texas stabbed his roommate with a kitchen knife because he was having relations too loudly. The roommate was in bed with two women when the suspect ran in and stabbed him several times in the head, back, and arms. The victim survived and the suspect was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon.
Slacker says he has gotten stabbed on an iron rod in a cemetery while he was trying to scare people.
Steve says, "Never stab a man when he is getting busy!"
Have you been stabbed or know someone who has?
When I was little my friend stabbed my third grade boyfriend in the eye with a pencil. His eye was severely damaged and she was forced to leave the school because of the incident.
Caitlin went to a fantastic school and even graduated with honors. She has a great job and found a fantastic man but there is one huge problem… She is bored! She feels unfulfilled, unsatisfied, and just plain Jane! She thinks that maybe she has everything she wants and she got it all too easily. She never has had to struggle to become successful.
Slacker says he does not understand why she is complaining about her perfect life. He has no idea where to begin to even help her. He asks is she is satisfied in the bedroom and she responds with a yes. He also asks if she wants to have kids and she said someday but not right now.
Steve says, "Her life is like Pleasantville, nothing ever bad happens".
Do you think she is being selfish?
I think she is justified because I would be bored as well. If you work hard your entire life without having any rebellion or any cool stories to tell the kids I would be bored as well. She needs to do something that will give her an adrenaline rush like sky diving or bungee jumping and maybe she won't feel so bored or unfulfilled with her life.
We all know it… sometimes guys just aren't very smart! Today were talking about horror stories regarding your husband! A newlywed couple in Germany were partaking on their honeymoon and the groom left his wife on the curb outside of the rest stop! She was sleeping in the back of the car on their road trip. Her groom went to get gas and she went to bathroom; when she came back he was gone. He came for her of course after he discovered she was missing from the car about two hours later. A woman who was running late from work asked her husband if he would do some of the laundry… well he did. He also forgot to check the pockets and blew up an ink pen in the dryer. Another woman said her child wanted to play baseball and even tryout for a team so her husband took their son out to play catch and all was well until the first ball he threw… he threw it right at his child's nose. The boy decided to not go out for baseball.
Slacker tells his personal husband horror story. His parents have an old house which means lower ceilings. Slacker had just had his baby and he was holding him up in the air and talking baby talk to him. He did not realize that his baby's head would get caught in the ceiling fan! He says his head was deformed for a while but it is all straightened out now.
Steve says he knows this woman who gained a lot of weight during her pregnancy which is totally normal. Well the daddy of the baby which was a huge fitness junky left her while she was delivering their baby because she gained too much weight! Steve says that deserves the worst husband of the year award!
Ladies! Time for you to spill the beans! What are your husband horror stories?
Lil' D's daughter is two years old and has the shoplifting fever! She steals chargers of all things. Her grandma came to visit and was charging her Nook. When she was leaving she could not find her charger. Turns out Lil' D's daughter had hid it from her in her room! Lil' D thinks it was almost like getting her to stay over. Another time his daughter took Lil' D's brother's phone charger and Lil' D's wife found it buried in the back of her drawer. Lil D' and the family went to visit his sister and his daughter was playing with a bell the entire time. They left and when they got home his sister called to ask if he knew what happened to the bell and if he would check the diaper bag. Sure enough the bell was in a side pocket of a diaper bag. Lil' D wants to know why she never steals anything he wants!
Slacker says if he got caught stealing by his parents, his parents would make him take the item back and apologize to the manager. One time he did steal earrings for his girlfriend in high school. She was not very appreciative he said because they did not come in a box. Slacker thinks that Lil' D needs to buy his daughter a onesie orange jump suit.
Steve says he has never been caught stealing by his parents but has been caught stealing candy at the grocery store and gas stations. He thinks there must be criminals in Lil' D's family because his daughter is only two and a master stealer!
Lil' D says he has a cousin that got caught stealing candy from 7/11 and his parents made him go take it back to the manager and apologize and the manager called the cops! He was on probation for shoplifting candy.
What are your klepto kid stories?
I used to steal things all the time when I was a child at the grocery store. I used to grab candy off the shelf and stick it in my pockets and walk out with it. When I was about 6 I used to brag about it to my mom and she would make me walk back into the store and pay for it and apologize.
Depending on what state you live in, there's a very good chance you'll have a terrible Thanksgiving. But don't take our word for it. The website Estately broke down which states are most likely to have a miserable Turkey Day, using criteria such as, likelihood of family food poisoning episode, Likelihood of a relative making a drunken scene, likelihood of political arguments, and likelihood of someone abandoning dinner for holiday shopping. Calculating all these factors spells bad news for the people in New Jersey, Utah, Arkansas, New Mexico, and Hawaii. But on the bright side, families in Pennsylvania, Iowa and Ohio are expected to have a fabulous holiday.
Slacker says that if he tries to order a steak that is rare his father says he will get salmonella because a long time ago his father got salmonella from a pink turkey on Thanksgiving. He says that when his dad got salmonella he lost a ton of weight and that he is scarred from that experience. Slacker says he cooks the best stuffing but his turkey sucks because he is forced to overcook it. He says usually he is the drunken guy at Thanksgiving. He says his dad always tries to start a conversation regarding politics.
Steve says he loves Slacker's stuffing and turkey. Steve says that he understands why there are so many political arguments because it is right around November. He says gravy shots are the best!
What are your stories about the worst turkey day you ever had?
I was in Dallas for a soccer tournament for Thanksgiving four years ago and my family and I had out Thanksgiving buffet style meal in a Chinese restaurant where no one spoke English.
Today's OPP is from Abby.
Yi, My boyfriend of a year and I had a big fight. Before he left he said maybe we should take a break. I've never taken a break in a relationship. What does taking a break mean? Are breaks a good thing? Do they ever work? Thanks guys! –Abby
Slacker says suggesting a break is a "slow burn" to a break up because the man does not have the skills to break up with her. He thinks that if a man suggests a break he wants a break up. He does not think that women ever suggests break because they know what they want and would never send their relationship into a "limbo" or "grey area."
Steve says her boyfriend may be waiting for her to break up with him because he does not know how to end things or he wants to explore his options while keeping Abby around just in case if he does not find anyone better. He says he has never been on a break and would never suggest one because to him its "all or nothing, with no grey area."
What does a break mean in a relationship to you? Do they work?
Breaks do not work! If a break is occurring in your relationship you need to leave,because most of the time it is basically like a free hall -pass. If your relationship needs a break you should not be together, because as corny as it sounds, love does not run.
Cory and Laura are happily married but are having a small dilemma. Cory's mother has not cooked a huge meal for her entire family for a long time and she wants to make the Thanksgiving dinner this year. However, his mother is getting senile and forgets things while she is cooking, such as salting the potatoes four times or using baking soda instead of baking powder. Cory says, "Go for it mom, make the Thanksgiving dinner." Laura says, "No, let's go somewhere else for dinner." Cory does not want to make his mom feel un-empowered or un-important on Thanksgiving. He knows she will not be around much longer so he thinks why not just let her have what she desires. Laura thinks that beside the food tasting terrible it will be more stressful for her on Thanksgiving by having to make a huge dinner for everyone. Laura suggested a pot luck styled dinner but Cory just wants what his mom wants.
Slacker asks Laura, "Can't you just eat bad food one more time?" Laura says it's no problem to eat terrible food; she is just more concerned with her mom lifting heavy pots and being stressed while cooking. He says that Laura would hurt Cory's mom's feelings more if she is micromanaged in the kitchen. He thinks it might be time to tell Cory's mom that she should be done making dinners for everyone.
Steve says Laura should just get passed this year with the bad food because who knows if she will be around for next year's Thanksgiving. He does like that Laura is being an advocate for the rest of the family. Steve says there is no tactful way to tell Cory's mom to not make the Thanksgiving dinner.
Should Cory and Laura let his mother continue her tradition for Thanksgiving dinner?
I am on Cory's side. Let her make the dinner! She may not be around for the next Thanksgiving, so let her fulfill her desires to cook.
Be careful eating those rib-eye steaks and ribs! Matthew McConaughey tells Contact Music that he cracked a tooth following his Oscar win. "I love rib eyes on a bone and so I said, 'This time I'm eating them with my hands'. It was great until the second rib eye and all of a sudden I snapped my tooth. I was like, 'Oh, G-O-D you're playing a joke on me'. I was so glad I didn't go to the steak restaurant before (the Oscars)."
Slacker says he has a friend that can pull string through his nose and out his mouth!
Steve says he breaks teeth all the time.
Lil' D has a personal horror tooth tale. When he was playing basketball and was going up for a rebound he got elbowed in the mouth. After the game he noticed that his front tooth was pushed all the way back to the roof of his mouth. It was Saturday and when he went to the dentist his dentist was out of town until Monday. He rocked a bent tooth until Monday and even had to get braced to pull his tooth back into place.
What are your tooth tales?
In my indoor soccer league my friend was going up for a header and came down mouth open on another guy's head. My friend lost his tooth in this guy's head and he had to go to the hospital to get the tooth lodged out immediately. It was the coolest and grossest thing I have ever seen in my life.
Emma is dating a wonderful guy and she is falling in love with him. Their relationship is getting more serious each day however, there is one thing she is getting tired of hearing and that is being compared to his ex -girlfriend. He never says anything negative to Emma. Every time he compares Emma to his ex it is always complimenting her and telling her everything she does is better than his ex. His ex- girlfriend passed away in a car accident and never was able to get closure so Emma completely understands but she thinks he needs to move on and she cannot become close enough to him and move completely forward until he stops.
Slacker says he is still hung up on his ex. Slacker says he does not care what his ex- girlfriends used to do right or wrong he would never compare. He thinks it is strange that Emma's boyfriend would speak ill of the dead to compliment his girlfriend.
Steve says Emma needs to break his patterns and get him through the death because this is new for him as well. Steve thinks that she should tell him sternly to stop comparing her to his ex by saying, "She's dead, you need to move on."
How can she make him stop comparing her to his ex?
If he likes her enough he will stop doing it if she asks, so she should just simply ask him to stop.
We found a list of the top five most stressful jobs. Here's the list!
1. Emergency Aircraft Pilot - an ambulance in the air, they deal with not only the stress of operating an aircraft, but having to transport people in emergency situations.
2. Teacher - they work constantly in an industry that's always evolving and have to act as life coaches half the time.
3. Event planner - the event itself is easy but planning and working with guests and trying to make everything work in the face of challenges is the hard part.
4. Police Officer - your schedule is insane, you have to be a jack of all trades, and you are risking your safety every day.
5. PR Account Executive - you have to work to please others constantly while being the person behind the curtain.
Slacker says 2 out 5 of these jobs are actually stressful and they are the police officer and the emergency aircraft pilot. He thinks that teachers should not be on the list especially above police officers because police officers get shot at and have to shoot back at people. Slacker say window washers for the World Trade Center have a more stressful job than teachers.
Steve says he does not consider his job a job. He thinks that an emergency aircraft pilot is not a stressful job but a fun one! He says all they have to do is just fly around in circles. Steve agrees with Slacker in saying that teachers should not be on this list because teachers get to play, color, and get free apples every day.
What makes your job so stressful?
I work in restaurant and the most stressful thing about working there is dealing with customers who are rude. It's hard to hold my tongue to someone who is being rude and unkind. Kill them with kindness is my moto.
Liam Hemsworth says kissing Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games is "pretty uncomfortable". He loves her but right before a scene she'd be like, 'Yeah, I had tuna and I didn't brush my teeth.' That's just fantastic! If you're a germaphobe you might not like hearing that 10 seconds of kissing can transfer 80 million bacteria. Kissing is though, healthy for you! The more bacteria, the stronger your resistance can become!
Slacker says if you never share a straw with your kid, nothing can be transferred until you do. Slacker says he will take all the bacteria in the world but he does not want to taste a flavor with it! Slacker wants everyone out there to know, Steve orders extra mayo on his tuna sandwiches! Slacker had made out with a girl once and she legitimately had a cat tongue! It was scratchy, sand paper-ish painful kiss.
Steve admitted he's not a fan of the deep, deep French kisses. When he was 10 or 11, his sister had her friends over and they wanted to French kiss so she grabbed his face and went for it. It was so awful; it has scared him for life. Steve smokes so he knows he has a trash mouth. Steve has kissed a stray dog for 15 seconds to earn $11 bucks. He says the dog likes it though because he's been told he's a good kisser! "Mouth to mouth to their soul" to be exact.
There are some stories out there that are so strange it's hard to believe that they are true! Brothers uncovered a complete snaggle tooth shark! They're digging in their backyard and they discover a 15 million-year-old shark! This unlikely find will soon be on display at the Calvert Marine Museum.
A 91-year-old was recently pronounced dead when she wasn't breathing, put into a body bag, and then woke up in a morgue 11 hours later!
Slacker is shocked that the people putting the older lady in the body bag didn't realize that her body wasn't very cold. Some doctor! He now wonders how many people die in the morgue! Like what if people wake up and just think, "Well whatever, I'm already here, I'll just die."
Steve's friend was in his kitchen one day, sees two people outside his property. He ran outside but they were gone by the time he went outside, then they were back a few days later and he caught them. He asked them why they were on his property and they said they think there's a T-rex skeleton buried in his land, and sure enough! He let him dig it up, they sold it, and now grandpa gets ONE MILLION DOLLARS for doing nothing!
Today's OPP thought her husband was the strong, macho type...but she just discovered it may have all been act!
Yi! I lost a lot of respect for my husband when he went on a trip. Basically, we got on a plane. I knew he was afraid of heights but I didn't realize to what extent. Basically, he was trembling like a scared dog on the plane. I had to give him a Benadryl so he could sleep. We ended up driving back. I don't know I haven't been really attracted to him since. I mean he seemed so scared and I've always known him as the big macho type and I'm having a hard time getting that feeling back. I mean it's really what attracted me to him. Is there any way to get over this or will I always see him different now?
Slacker says it's one of those things that once you turn that corner with someone, there's no going back. Sure, everyone has a fear. Slacker is terrified of spiders but if there's a spider at home, he takes care of it. He wouldn't want his wife to say, "There's a spider in the bathroom," and Slacker goes running off screaming. He doesn't really blame Jennifer for seeing her man a little differently, it's kind of normal. Slacker says he has never seen someone as scared of a plane as our own Lil D! He has to have some drinks, headphones and can't decide where he wants to sit. As he sweats! Slacker thinks she is allowed to feel this way, but if there's a secret to someone you thought you knew, it does shock you!
Steve has had this moment with his dad. He saw his dad scared for the first time in his life and he will never forget it.
Is there a way she can get over it or will she always see him differently?
I think it depends on the girl! My boyfriend was on a plane for the first time in his life with me when we went to Vegas. I've been on a plane multiple times and they don't scare me a bit. He didn't really know what to expect so when we took off and it was raining pretty bad, he got extremely scared! The plane was shaking, super bumpy, and it was dark outside! He pretty much dug his head into my chest the whole ride and I thought it was adorable! He's manly in every other way and on our second plane ride we went on recently, he was already used to it!
There are some things in life that you can never unsee...Like your grandma changing out of her nightgown or your teacher killing a rabbit and skinning it in front of the class! A biology teacher wanted to show her students where their food came from. Jose Canseco just had to share a picture of his finger after being shot off and barely reattached!
Slacker doesn't mind that fact that food comes from bunnies but he doesn't need to actually SEE it happening! Slacker's uncle use to take his teeth out and it's something Slacker can't ever get out of his head. Another time when he was in Brazil, he was there and forgot to pack shorts so he goes to buy shorts. It's harder than normal out there because everyone is wearing speedos so when he went back to the dressing room, he accidently opened a door to a man trying his new speedo on.
Steve has seen his parents doing the deed. His parents were making noises he had never heard and doing things he has never seen, so… He was young. Plus he adds that his parents weren't very attractive people which made it worse. (They're his parents; he'd allowed to say that.)
What do you wish you could unsee?
Unfortunately, I have a similar story to Steve. I totally saw my parents doing the deed and I for some reason, can't ever get that image out of my head.
A dog secretly hitched a ride on the side step of an ambulance when his 85-year-old owner was being taken to a Texas hospital. The crew didn't know the dog was outside until a motorist flagged them down. They pulled the dog inside after he rode outside for about 20 miles. The man is now back home and reunited with his dog.
Slacker says we use the word amazing way too often in this day and age. Your dog may be cute but he wants to hear about TRULY amazing pet stories. A woman watching her daughter had a bird that could talk a little. The parrot was in the house when the mom goes into another room and the bird starts yelling, "Baby, mama, baby, mama!" The mom runs back into the room and sees her child choking on a pop-tart!
Steve says he doesn't keep up with an ambulance, he passes them! Steve and Slacker went on a huge rant about a house bird being similar to Chris Angel, you know, the guy with magical powers.
Do you have a pet that's ever done something amazing?
When I was about six years old, my bedroom window faced the front yard. While I was sleeping, my dog started to bark so loudly and scratched at my blinds. I looked out the window and saw five cops standing on my front lawn. I ran to wake up my parents and they went outside to see what was going on. Our garage was open and someone had robbed us! Good job to the family pup!
You find the perfect guy, fall in love, you get married and then you realize that you have to deal with his mom. Are you on the verge of a break up? Blame your mother-in-law: Two thirds of divorcees say it was their mom who convinced them to end things! 63% say their families weighed on their decision but it's the moms who have the greatest influence. One mother-in-law was stabbing a husband when the wife walked into the house and saw her! The mother started to attack the wife until she finally made it out of the house. That's when she realized she was bleeding and had been stabbed multiple times! Talk about serious MONSTER-in-laws!
Slacker says he adores his in-laws. Slacker had his rehearsal dinner at a steakhouse and the groom is supposed to pay for it. Their menu had filets and the server explained their special for the night, "The Surf-n-Turf." His mother-in-law made it seem like the lobster tail was only a dollar extra so every single person there (total of around 40) all added one to their meals! They were absolutely 100% not even close to being a dollar. Ouch!
Steve hasn't ever had to really deal with any sort of mother-in-law! Oh, lucky him.
What ridiculous things has your mother-in-law done to you?
I'm not married but luckily for me, I love my boyfriend's mom!
They say relations slow down after you get married...today's OPP says his wife hasn't stopped having relations, but she's doing something else that has him questioning their commitment.
My wife and I have been married almost a year. While we were dating, she was really adventurous in the bedroom and willing to try anything at least once. It was fun and exciting. All that changed when we got married. Every single time we have relations it feels like it's to accomplish a quick goal and be done. I've approached her about it and she said she was willing to experiment and try crazy things while we were dating because at the time she didn't know we were going to spend our lives together and she could leave if she did anything that embarrassed her. Now she can't do that so she wants to be respectable. How do I get her to realize that I miss the things we did while dating and they won't make me think any less of her. How do I get things to go back to the way they were?
Slacker says this is the opposite of the way things should be. The more comfortable you get with someone; you should be able to do everything! Not the other way around. What does he thinks going to happen when she has kids?! Slacker is asking Steve if he thinks the wife found herself a "Steve" and is getting her needs fulfilled elsewhere. It doesn't make sense that she gave him all her goods and then took it back once she knew him better. She can't do that! Maybe once you get married, you start to focus on your career or something so you have to slow down a little, but he can't imagine it stopping completely. If you are naturally a freak and even if you are having an affair, you would still turn it on for your husband wouldn't you!
Steve says she hooked him and now, no goods. If this is a huge priority to Mike and it doesn't change, it can end their marriage. Steve seems to hang out with a lot of married women and it's because the husbands to those women stop feeding their needs and they look elsewhere!
What's your advice for Mike?
Yikes. Even being a female, this is hard to answer. I kind of believe Slacker may be right, maybe she's getting satisfied somewhere else. If she used to be a freak, I don't know why she'd turn it off purposefully. If Mike has seen her in every way before they were married, there's really nothing to be embarrassed of, especially if you married the right person! Good luck.
A 66-year-old grandmother tried to keep a thief from stealing her car by jumping on the hood. She held onto the windshield wipers hoping he would give up. He kept driving and she held on until he took a sharp turn and she flew off. She ended up with a broken leg and some stitches in the back of her head. The driver was eventually caught after having a run down with the police! Another 65-year-old grandma was busted for selling marijuana to raise her grandchildren! Her daughter had died and she wanted to provide for them. She's been selling as much as 100 pounds of the drug each year since 2009!
Slacker says we have never once during our show talked about the elderly! Maybe we are about to find out why. One of Slacker's grandpas was a farmer and out in the fields, doing his jobs. He would rap ropes around his hands to control his animals when one of them got spooked and took off, ripped off two of his fingers! He rounds up the rest of the horses to put them away, raps his hands, and walks about six miles to town to get some help. Slacker will call into work for a freaking hang nail but his grandpa can finish up his chores with two less fingers!
Steve said his grandparents locked the keys in the house and were going to have to smash a window to get in. He's cheap though, so he smashes a small window and throws grandma in there to avoid paying a locksmith. Her dress was ripped but she let them in!
Kamil Podwinski was working on some standard home improvements and accidently slipped on some wood. The 15 inch piece of wood lodged into his face entering below his eye socket and exiting out the back of his neck. The hospital thought it was too much for them to handle so they called the fire department to remove the piece of wood. Sebastian Andrzejewsk of the fire department said, "When we arrived, it was sticking out at quite an angle and took quite a bit of effort to shorten it without causing further damage. It wasn't a case of just snapping off the end. It was tricky, but we managed it and he didn't complain or seem worried at all. The wood was removed and is expected to make a full recovery.
Slacker says knows someone that went to the ER that had AAA batteries stuck up his "daddy parts." He says apparently when performed this act he was able to pop them out but not that time he was forced to go to the ER. Slacker says the bizarre thing about hospitals is the protocol. He says one time he gashed his head open and was bleeding profusely but the individual with the "sniffles" got treated first.
Steve says he knows tricks on how to get treated first in the ER but he cannot say without getting in trouble!
Tracy says her best friend is attached to her daughter at the hip. Tracy's friend brings her child everywhere with her like poetry readings, yoga, and even happy hour! Tracy says she has not seen her friend without her six year old daughter in over five years and she even works from home. She does not mind her friend bringing her daughter but all the time is unacceptable. She says there is a time and place for children and girls night out is not one of them. Tracy wants to know how to tell her friend nicely not to bring her child anymore to their outings without ruining the friendship.
Slacker says he understands why she brings her daughter because he brings his children everywhere on the weekends. He says he works all week long and never gets enough time to spend with them and all he wants to do is be with them. Slacker explains that when he gets invited to places he always asks if he can ring his children and if the answer is no then he takes a rain-check with his friends. Bringing children to happy hour Slacker says is not that big of a deal because he just brought his son Noah to a bar with Steve last week. He says that if the bar has macaroni and cheese there than it is a kid friendly establishment. He tells Tracy that she is going to find out that her friend is going to choose her daughter over you.
Steve says he understands Tracy's standpoint of "there is a time and place for everything." He does say however by agreeing with Slacker that Tracy will soon realize that she is no longer the number one priority because her daughter is.
How can Tracy tell her friend not to bring her daughter around that often?
I think Tracy needs to sit down and talk to her friend and explain the issue at hand rather than deciding not to involve her in anymore events.
A man in Ware, Massachusetts living at a senior home has started his third cooking fire in his apartment. After he started a grease fire he made the quick (awful) decision to pour water on the fire which is a big not to do when dealing with a grease fire. The sprinkler system automatically turned on in the complex and the firefighters were prompted to respond immediately. The 10,000 to 15,000 dollar damage came mostly from the water. The fire chief says they are educating the man on fire safety to prevent more fires from happening in the future. A man from Wausau, Wisconsin has stabbed his brother in the shoulder. The dispute was over the victim making a mess in the kitchen while he was cooking. The victim was taken the hospital and his brother was taken into custody. The man was intoxicated when stabbing his brother with an 8 inch knife. He is being charged with first-degree recklessly endangering safety, endangering safety with a dangerous weapon, and disorderly conduct.
Slacker says, "Never throw water on a grease fire!" He thinks most people think that water will put out any type of fire but definitely not a grease fire; in fact he says it does the exact opposite. If he ever catches on fire he said he will just throw some sugar on himself to make him caramelized so he can creme brulee himself.
Steve says he loves cooking with his George Forman Grill. He thinks if a grease fire were to ever happen in his house he would either stop, drop, and roll out the door or grab his friendship quilt to put it out.
What are your cooking catastrophes?
I have poisoned my entire family numerous times. One time I was making simple hash-browns and put way way way too much oil in the pan but the potatoes soaked it all up but it tasted awful and it gave everyone terrible stomach aches.
Today we're talking about movies and what movies we have to watch beginning to end if it is on the television, what movies we can quote instantly, or what movies we hate but everyone loves!
Slacker has built up a tolerance to Iocane powder! His wife loves to see new movies but when Slacker is bored he loves to watch old movies and his go to is Princess Bride and The Thing You Do! He has to watch them until the end!
Steve says not liking the Princess Bride is "Inconceivable!" He says Princess Bride is a must watch and he even loves it so much he is reading an entire book about the movie! He is appalled that Lil' D has never seen it.
Lil' D says he has never seen the Princess Bride because he thought it was a girly movie also because he has heard the quotes repeated so many times that there is no point to see it. Lil' D says his go to movie is Eight Seconds or Days of Thunder!
What movies do you have to watch if it is on T.V.? What movie can you quote easily? Or what movie do you hate but everyone else loves?
I have to watch Napoleon Dynamite every time it is on T.V. and it is also the movie I can quote verbatim. Everyone loves the movie This Is the End, they thought it was hilarious… everyone except for me, I thought it was awful!
A grocery shopper watched a pregnant woman and her young son beg for money on a San Diego corner before getting into a Mercedes Benz and driving away. The woman witnessed the mother and her child begging on the corner every weekend for the past two weeks. The woman said she saw them take money from dozens of shoppers, but then the pair left their corner, met up with the woman's boyfriend and drove away in a dark-colored Mercedes. The car appears to be a Mercedes E320, which costs from $51,000 to $100,000. The shopper snapped photos of the car and of the couple laughing and counting their money. The couple then drove into a nearby shopping plaza, where the woman got out and started begging again. A news station traced the license plate to a woman who lives in an upscale apartment that rents for around $2,500 a month. A Florida couple witnessed their home being broken into even though they were over 1,000 miles away in Philadelphia. The couple set up a camera in their home and connected it to an app on a cell phone. They saw a man and woman breaking open their front door and stole the camera. The suspects also stole a safe that turned out to be empty. The couple does have a clear picture of the suspects but no one has been arrested at this time.
Slacker says that the pregnant woman begging is awful and he thinks she should get into trouble for her actions.
Steve says he agrees with the pregnant woman.
Have you ever been busted or busted someone else?
At my other job I witnessed a couple who was having relations in the freezer… Yep that's right the FREEZER! BUUURRRRR!
Today's OPP is from Kelly.
My husband and I have a young son and it seems like every gift he gets for birthdays or holidays always have guns or some other weapon with them. I told my husband that I don't want our son playing with any type of gun. I don't care how fake it is, learning to shoot someone isn't good for a child. I don't want him using water guns, cap guns, laser guns, etc. I don't even like him to use his fingers as a gun. My husband says it's just part of being a boy and playing is not going to turn him into a killer. I just don't like saying it's okay. What does everyone else think about toy guns? It's not just part of being a boy is it? –Kelly
Slacker says from an early age his son Noah would jump around and pretend to shoot things. He says sometimes even Noah will creep into his room in the morning and pretend to shoot him in the head "execution style." Slacker does not think that behavior will turn him into a serial killer. Slacker said this behavior is in KIDS DNA, not just boys, because his daughter will also have this behavior. He thinks this woman would be the type to blame all violence on video games and T.V. He says, all movies have a type of gun or weapon, even cartoons have some sort of weapon in them.
Steve says he always plays dead with Slacker's son Noah. Steve's nephew was raised without guns and he would still pretend to shoot things so Steve began playing dead with him. He says it just comes natural. Steve asks, "So these types of parents won't even let his children watch The Incredibles? That is an animated movie and is family friendly but has weapons in it. Steve proposes the question, "What about all the other kids who were raised with guns who haven't become serial killers?
Is this a part of being a boy? Whose side are you on?
I am on the husband's side. I think overprotecting your kids is ridiculous. They are kids; they will come across worse things than guns in their lifetime. If she is limiting all use of toy guns where does she draw the line? Is she going to not let him go to on a swing because he might fall? Teaching your children morals and lessons about gun usage is smarter than not letting him even play with his finger. If you limit your child from something in their childhood most likely they will rebel later in life.
It is time again for Jar of Truths! Here is the question and answers from today.
How did you guys meet?
Slacker says that back in the day he was pulling the "rock star gig" and he and his band were opening up for this band called Docken. Steve had a show called Amplitude that played 80s music and Steve interviewed Slacker and his band on air. They became instant friends, went out for drinks and had the same type in women. The bro-mance started instantly. He says he asked Steve how he could get in the radio deejay business and Steve hooked him up with networks. He started a radio show in the studio right next to Steve called Delilah and they used to call each other all the time on air and do funny things to liven up the show. Slacker says then he got offered the position at Alice and he called Steve to be his co-host. Steve said yes immediately.
Steve says they basically had a radio show back then when they were in studios besides each other.
What questions do you have regarding Slacker, Steve, Lil' D, or the show?
Amy has received an impressive amount of education in her lifetime. She has received multiple degrees, even her master's degree. She has a great high paying job that gives her and her husband Dean a comfortable living. Dean and Amy have one kid together and they are happily married. Amy wants more children and Dean agrees but the one thing they do not agree on could be life altering, turning their comfortable living into an expensive one. Amy wants to leave her job because she thinks what will bring her the most fulfillment of happiness is to be a stay at home mom. Dean says, "No way, you have to go to work so we can afford to have more children." Children are not exactly cheap but Amy says money cannot buy happiness.
Slacker asks Amy, "Will you be able to continue on having your comfortable lifestyle?" She explains that it would be hard and that they would have to make some financial changes. Slacker tells Dean that he having the sole responsibility to put bread on the table would be tough.
Steve says no one raises their own children anymore because there are daycares and nannies. Steve says, "Women have choices, men have responsibilities."
Whose side are you on?
I am on Dean's side. I can understand Amy's desire to be a stay at home mom. That's what every parent wants but it is not possible for everyone. Children require a high amount of money and if only one income is coming into the household it makes it hard to provide for your children and family (talking to middle to lower class family.) I think that leaving a great job after you poured countless hours and tuition money to get to that job is un-intelligent. Amy needs to stay at her job and maybe just cut down her hours or if possible work from home one day. The children's well- being should come first and those children won't be happy if their parents are complaining, fighting, and stressing over the money that they need to pay rent or to put food on the table.
A 36 year old mother from Florida is being charged with two felony counts of child abuse after she let her 12 year old drive around their trailer park. The child crashed the Ford Mustang into a trailer's front porch. The mother said she was trying to teach him how to drive. She said she never intended on letting the boy actually drive but just to show him how to shift stick worked and the car suddenly pulled away into the porch. Neighbors say they saw the boy driving around the park before crashing. No one was injured in the accident.
Slacker's parents never let him do anything! Slacker's parents let him try beer a couple times when he was young and that is why now he is a "wine cooler boy" according to Steve. The mother who let her child drive in the trailer park should have told the police that he stole the car and she would have gotten away without any felonies. Slacker knows a family that let their daughter's boyfriend move into the house at age 15. Now those parents are grandparents.
Steve says that his parent's let his sister have one party. Steve invited all of his friends and they destroyed everything in the house. Steve's friends ruined it for the both of them but Steve claims he was the victim in that situation. Steve's friends used to smoke pot with their parents and one even sold pot with his mother. The story regarding the trailer park Steve says that the trailer must have been nice if it had a front porch.
Lil D's uncle used chew and he decided that he wanted to try some of it. His uncle let him grab as much as he wanted and stuffed his mouth with chew. Lil' D was puking profusely a couple minutes after ingesting it. Lil' D also had this girlfriend when he was about 17. He would go over to her house and watch movies with his girlfriend's mother. One night his girlfriend's pants accidently slipped down when she was next to Lil' D and she told her mom, "I'm so sorry mom, I promise we weren't doing anything." The mother responded, "That's okay! If you want to do something go to your room!" Lil' D and his girlfriend spent the rest of their time in her bedroom until they broke up.
What are your "my parents let me…" stories?
My dad used to chew tobacco and when I was about 13 years old I decided that I wanted to desperately try a dip. My dad gave me a pinch of his Copenhagen Snuff. I put it in my mouth and immediately got sick. I was throwing up everywhere and never wanted to try another dip again.
Joe's Crab Shack in Colorado Springs served children alcohol due to a "huge mistake." The six children, between the ages of 2 and 8, all ordered Shark Nibbles, a popular drink off of the kid's menu but were instead served Shark Bites, a cocktail combining Bacardi Limon Rum, Skyy Vodka, blue curacao, sweet and sour, and grenadine. When Trista and Omar Montoya's family came to visit, they decided to take them out to their favorite restaurant. After drinks were delivered to their table by the waitress, the family went on with their dinner conversation. Around a half hour later, the waitress returned to their table to remove the drinks, explaining "they were made with the wrong ingredients." Only when the manager came over with a tray of fresh drinks, did the family find out that the six cousins were served alcoholic beverages. By the time the drinks were taken away, some of the kids, including the 2-year-old, had finished the rum and vodka laden drink. The family was forced to notify paramedics after the kids started to feel sick. "(The manager) said it was 'mislabeled' and we were a little bit concerned with that kind of response," Omar told KKTV. The children were checked by Colorado Springs paramedics and released to go home.
Slacker says he feels like he is going to ruin something in the studio any minute because he just eyes dilated and he and Steve are doing the show in the dark. Slacker thinks that Shark Bites are fu fu drinks!
Steve says he needs a lighter to work in the dark environment! Steve thinks that Shark Bites are manly!
Lil' D says that mixing up drinks is extremely easy and he would know because he is a former bartender.
What is your biggest work mistake?
I make a ton of mistakes at my waitressing job. Wrong orders, wrong drinks, ect. My biggest mistake was serving someone who was allergic to gluten a ton of gluten. I forgot to modify the item in the computer and he got a gluten filled meal. Funny part was he never noticed, but I knew there was a great possible chance he was going to be sick once he left. I swear I am a fantastic waitress but there are those times when mix-ups and forgetfulness do come into play.
Nick has been married to his wife for some time now. She is in the military and is now home from being deployed. She was open and honest and admitted that she had cheated on Nick when she was deployed. She blamed it on being drunk, lonely, and stressed out. His initial reaction was rage and paralyzed. He was emotionally confused. After the shock wore off Nick says he can understand the circumstance. He can understand the physical release that needs to happen in such a stressing environment but he cannot trust her for a great amount of time. His friends and family are telling him to leave her but he is confused on what he should do. He is worried that she might do this again if she gets deployed once more.
Slacker proposes the question, "She came clean so does that make her more trustworthy? Because when a child does something wrong such as stealing something and they feel so remorseful for doing it that they admit their wrong you praise them for telling the truth." Slacker thinks it is a confusing circumstance because she cheated and came clean but Nick could never trust her if she got deployed again.
Steve says if you praise them for being truthful and forgive them they have an open ally to commit the same discretion knowing they will be forgiven once more. Steve likes the fact that Nick is trying to forgive her.
Should he stay with her? Will she do this again if she is deployed?
I think he should leave her because if she gets deployed again he would never be happy the entire time she was gone. Trust without a relationship is like an ice cream cone with no ice cream; it just cannot work.
A woman in Washington D.C. has spent over 35,000 dollars to search for her dog that went missing over a year ago. A Washington D.C. woman has spent $35,000 to find her dog that went missing a year ago. She has blanketed neighborhoods with signs and has hired four psychics and private eye dog investigators. She bought 20 staple guns, cameras, trackers, signs and put out dog food, beef and hot dogs at places the dog has been seen. The woman said she doesn't regret spending all the money to get a member of her family back. She has offered a reward and would pay up to $1,000 if someone returns her dog. A man in China bought 99 iPhones and had spent over $80,000 to propose to his girlfriend and she, unfortunately, declined. According to site The Nanfang, the Guangzhou programmer decided to pop the question ahead of Nov. 11, which in China, is celebrated as "Single's Day" because of the four lonely 1's in the date. According to pictures obtained by the site, the confident man placed the 99 iPhones into a heart formation. He then proposed to his presumably now ex-girlfriend in the middle of the heart in front of several onlookers. Recent news reports that the man also had to save two years- worth of his salary to pull off the stint. Following his rejection, commenters then wrote on the site, "How many kidneys did it take to buy those phones?" in reference to the 2011 news story about the boy who sold his kidney for an iPad.
Slacker says that Steve's purchases drive him crazy! Slacker says he decided one day that he wanted to be a photographer. He purchased a camera along with an underwater housing unit for his camera because he was extremely into scuba diving. He dropped 9,000 dollars on the entire set up. He took his camera into the ocean and thought he would quit his daytime job and start selling photographs and books on his technique on taking such beautiful photos. Slacker said his pictures were "blue, just blue." They looked terrible so his camera sat in a drawer until years later he found a guy who wanted a camera so Slacker gave it to him. Slacker thinks the woman who spent 35,000 dollars on finding her lost dog id ridiculous because she could have purchased 35 dogs worth 1,000 for that amount! He proposes the question, "How does 99 iPhones say, "I'm the one, marry me?""
Steve jokes about having a diamond incrusted dog bed. However, he has a really expensive stupid purchase. Steve bought a sea shell toilet paper holder that was way overpriced. Steve recalls the time in Vegas with Slacker when they were offered a splash of bad wine that they compared to tasting like "snake urine." When the bill came to the table they were shocked because for two splashes of this wine it was 700 dollars. Steve does not understand why the woman in Washington D.C. would spend that much on just a dog.
What are your most stupid purchases?
I spent 200 dollars on a turquoise clay hand. I thought it was pretty even though it was literally just a hand and had no real purpose. I use it now to hold my car keys and loose change.
No one likes a show off! A man was gunning the engine in his Lamborghini until flames shot out the tailpipe and lit the back of the sports car on fire. The guy gets out of the car and swats at the flames with a shirt and even tries to blow them out. When that didn't work, he got back in the Lambo and drove off…with the car still on fire!
Slacker asks do you think showing off is just a guy thing? A guy will look at a girl and decide if yes, you are attractive, or no you're not. Men don't think like "well how much can she bench press" and then decide if you're attractive… No. It's like being a peacock. Slacker says he doesn't show off, but he used to try to jump off buildings thinking women would appreciate that? He now realizes that never works.
Steve says this dude did the worst thing possible driving off making the flames even bigger! Steve had a crush on a girl when he was young so he rode his bike over to her house and tried to jump a hole in their driveway, but failed. After being injured, he tried to play like he was injured but he's okay because he's tough! His bike was messed up and he couldn't figure out how to fix it so he had to walk off ashamed and girl-less.
Lil D was trying to show off for a girl once. He worked at Subway in high school and was closing with a girl and he jumped up and slid on the freshly mopped tile. Him trying to catch his balance, he grabbed on to whatever was close and ended up cutting his leg open. He cut himself so bad; you could see the white stuff in his legs! The girl he was trying to impress wasn't even slightly impressed.
Have you ever tried to show off and it failed miserably?
It must be a guy thing! I do not show off and when it's so obvious a guy is trying to show off, it's a turn off.
A new company now offers the service of anonymously sending animal manure to enemies and other people you just don't like. Choose the person you don't like, choose the animal you want the manure to come from, and let it rip. Another man says, "My former wife loves to take expensive vacations. We live in Ohio, which doesn't exactly have extravagant places to see. While we make OK money, I'm convinced she felt the need to single handedly improve the US economy by taking elaborate vacations: Broadway shows in New York City, gambling in Las Vegas, Spa's in Arizona, sightseeing in San Francisco. The airlines know me so well they ask about my dog when I call to make reservations." He had bought this Honeywell Wi-Fi enabled device so he could adjust the HVAC while they were away to save a few bucks. After his wife found a richer man, she left him. She took the house, dog, and half of his 401k so how does he get back at her? Well since she left the thermostat in the house, he likes to change the temperature while the new love birds sleep. 40 degrees while you're sleeping in the winter and a nice 80 degree sleep in the middle of June!
Slacker is feeling like he wants to send poop to himself! Slacker wants to be friends with this guy! He gets revenge every single day and he doesn't even have to send her poop.
Steve says this guy with the thermostat is awesome!! He has to respect that!
The boyfriend of today's OPP wants her to change a part of her body. She says, "No way! It's part of who I am." When you hear what he wants her to change, you may think he's right.
Yi! My boyfriend and I have been talking marriage. I think he is getting ready to propose. We did have a bit of an argument on Friday over one of my tattoos. It has the names of my two kids and my ex-husband. He wants me to remove my ex's name. There is no way to do it without changing the entire tatt. My ex and I are friendly. He is a part of my past that I cannot change. The more I think about my boyfriend's request the more I don't want to change the tatt? I also see his point. He doesn't want to be reminded of my ex everytime we make love. Can you ask your listeners what they would do? Should I remove the tatt or not?
Slacker says this is a pretty big deal! She can't take it off so get over it dude. Slacker's wife was married to a firefighter and she got the firefighter symbol thing tattooed by her lower hip. It's in a place you definitely see during relations. He can't remember if he asked her to change it or not, his memory is faint at the moment. She eventually came to Slacker and asked for help on what she should do, but it would cost thousands of dollars to remove so she wanted a different route. They had talked about butterflies at some point in their relationship and she used that idea to go cover it up! Slacker says since the ex is still alive, she has to remove it! If he was dead, it would be fine…as weird as that sounds.
Steve says maybe if he didn't work out as a husband, maybe she just wants to honor him as a father, he could possibly be a good father! In the end though, it is her body, she can do whatever she wants! Blah blah blah.
What's your advice for him and her?
Why does anyone get any sort of name tattooed on them!? I'll never get it. If he wants it removed I totally understand, but he's paying!!
In Hawaii, a guy was surfing with his friend and watched in horror as his friend was attacked by a shark. "Its intent was to eat my friend right in front of me, and I wasn't going to let that happen," Brian Wargo said of Friday's attack. He punched the shark so hard, he felt like he broke his hand but after the 6th hit, the shark swam away! The victim had only 20 stitches in her hand following the attack. The Department of Land and Natural Resources closed the beach after the attack.
Slacker says he would do ALMOST anything for Steve. Slacker had a friend recently who drank too much wine, barfed everywhere in his house. Slacker cleaned up all the throw up in his house, kitchen, and helped him to rest. They won't be friends much longer. Slacker had once took a hit for a friend with alcohol. His friend hid a bottle of Vodka in the bushes outside and when his parents found it, blamed it on Slacker and he went with it because he knew his parents weren't going to be mad at him. Nice!
Steve says he would do just about anything for a friend. He said if Slacker got bit by a snake, he would suck the poison out of him to save him! He was in Boy Scouts so he knows how to do that! Take a knife, cut between the two fang marks, and suck it right out! Just don't swallow that stuff.
Lil D says do not listen to Steve!! Do not cut in between the snake bites, you will bleed to death. You have a better chance if you Wiki it!
What's the craziest thing you've ever done for a friend?
My friend had lied to her mom about a party she went to. Her mom wanted to talk to the mother of the girl's house she had a "sleep-over" with so her friend gave her my number. I pretended to be a mom, I had to talk to her like once a week for a month, and I even had to change my voicemail to a fake name so she wouldn't get in trouble!
There's nothing worse than standing in line at a store next to a parent who refuses to quiet their screaming, tantrum-throwing child. Oh wait, there's one thing worse. It's when you ask that parent to please quiet their child and then that parent follows you into the parking lot and punches you in the face.
Slacker says when you're in Walmart, hearing a baby scream or cry is completely normal! It's expected. At Nordstrom though, where this all went down, you expect a little bit of silence from kids. Just like at an expensive restaurant, you wouldn't expect hearing crying babies. Parents who are waiting for their tables at a restaurant will sit by the door to know their kids can't leave to anywhere but let them run around everywhere else without a care. Slacker has more pity for parents then a non-parent would.
Steve says first of all he wouldn't be at Nordstrom Rack but he would step up if he was in that position and say something to be looking out for all the other people in line. Nine out of ten times a parent will lash out at you because they are embarrassed about what happened.
Lil D has stepped up to a person once! He was at a pumpkin patch once after it rained so it was muddy and slippery. He was in the parking lot getting his kids ready and this mom is dragging him across the parking lot with mud up to his knees, yelling at him to hurry up and get to the car. He yelled, "Hey! He's just a kid, calm down!" After that she stopped and looked at him but that's about it.
Is it okay to hush other people's children? Has it ever happened to you or have you ever been the husher?
I can absolutely say working in a restaurant, I see parents not caring about their kids choices the most! I will have a tray FULL of 12 drinks, trying not to drop them and pass them out at the same time and a little kid will scream at me, "I NEED A STRAW! WHERE'S MY MAC-N-CHEESE!?" I have no extra hands and their parents will literally say nothing. They let them run around our dining area when we are carrying trays of food!? I have even bumped a child in the head with plates because he came running around the corner, so yes I would step up if I wasn't being paid at the time!
We all have at least one skeleton in our closet! Maybe it was something dumb you did in college or a long-held family secret. Or maybe you're like Daniel Sawka who filed a federal civil rights lawsuit alleging sexual harassment because he posed in Playgirl. Someone at work found his photos online and he was harassed so much he was forced to leave the job.
Slacker says if was trying to run for President he would be scared if his shoplifting incident got out. He was accused of shoplifting, they said he had shoved something down his pants and he said "no I didn't" as he pulled down his pants! He isn't allowed back in any of those book stores but he doesn't read anyway! Slacker is pretty much an open book and has already admitted to everything wrong he has done so far in his life.
Steve says he has had all his skeletons sponged when he was 17, no record!! Steve has done just about every single drug in the book but he's admitted to that so technically it doesn't exactly count. He also gravitates towards women he shouldn't... Married women are off limits but Steve feels he is the victim!
What are the skeletons in your closet?!
I will never admit to them! They're all going to the grave with me.
Last week our OPP writer Amy talked about not being able to pay for her daughter's college. She felt like a failure, picked up a second job, even downgraded her apartment. Today we have Hannah on air, her daughter! She says none of this is true! When her dad died, he left plenty of money behind but her mom spent it all on vacations, facials all the time, etc.!
Hannah was on air today! Said she had her friends call her saying they heard her mom on the radio. Amy sat Hannah down this past weekend and said the check bounced for college so she couldn't pay anymore. Hannah wants everyone to know that's total crap! Her mom doesn't even have a job, when her dad died; he left a crap-ton of money behind. Her mom went to Paris, went to London one weekend "just cause!" When Hannah was home, her mom got facials, bought a new LV purse, but doesn't have any money for her!
Anne was on air with us today too! Amy said once she told her daughter about the money situation, her daughter was acting like a brat. Slacker asks her if she lied to them about the money situation. Amy says she spent the money her late husband gave her to raise Hannah but also spent some on her-self. She said she did buy a LV bag this weekend but it was a knock-off and she needed it to be presentable at work. She went to London for a business thing but decided to spend a few days in Paris because she's never been there, who wouldn't!?
Slacker asks if the money from her dad was set aside specifically for college or Hannah specifically? Slacker asked her where Hannah is right now? After she said she was at school, he said well you have to get out of there because they'll kick you out. Slacker says what if Hannah is lying about her mom or is the mom really lying about the money situation.
Steve says he doesn't like the mom anymore! He has no idea who telling the truth.
What do you believe? Any advice for these two?
This is insane. I honestly feel bad for them both no matter who is being honest. It's pretty sad to hear that they aren't very close. They should fix that first! As far as college, Hannah is going to have to get financial aid and / or loans. So many college students do it, she can too!
A deputy has been suspended after a video of him showing inappropriate interaction with a resident. He used intense profanity and assertiveness. He slapped the resident on the head when he wouldn't give him, his keys. Slacker was walking through a parking lot when he saw a lady loading her pipe…with her kids in the back seat!!
Slacker isn't nosey but he says once you're a parent, you start to look and judge other parents! Slacker really judges car seats. Anyway, since his kids are growing out of the baby seats into the bigger kid seats, whenever he's walking by a car, he'll look inside to see what kind they have. He was walking up towards a car and saw two kids inside similar in size / age as his own so he looked what they were sitting in. (They were slandered boosters, nothing special.) Then he saw their mom in the front seat looking down and he thought to himself, "how awesome, that mom is sending her texts before she drives! She's being safe for the kids." As he was passing by her, he realized she is not texting! She has a plastic bag full of some green substance and stuffing it into a glass pipe! Not only were her two kids in the backs seat, but she had all the windows rolled up! Slacker didn't see any curiosity from the kids, so it appeared that they were completely used to that stuff.
Steve asks did Slacker even actually see her smoke the pipe and drive off? At least the kids were safe in their boosters. She's a good parent for the fact that she's spending her money on marijuana instead of nicer car seats. Steve says if Slacker was a good parent, he would have knocked on her car window and asked if she planned on smoking that before she drove off.
What's the most inappropriate thing you've ever seen?
Allison was riding the train to the airport and spotted an elderly woman who seemed frightened to be on the train and all alone. Allison greeted the woman and they discussed riding alone on the train and plane and that the elderly woman's children said that the travel will be easy but she disagreed. Allison told the woman that she would help her get to where she needed to go. As they were changing trains to get on a new line the train jerked and the elderly woman fell. Her bags went flying and so did her pride. A homeless man helped her pick up her bags and carry them for her. Allison helped her up as well as a teenager. The woman was obviously embarrassed but a nice young business man told her, "I didn't see a thing, beautiful." After all the help, compliments, and ease of travel the woman was regaining her confidence. Allison was brought to tears because of all of the strangers that were helping this woman.
Slacker was moved to tears after reading this. He thinks this is hope for humanity. Slacker is surprised that Steve and Lil' D are so against this article. Slacker said he can relate to the homeless guy in this story. He wants to punch Steve and Lil' D in the face.
Steve was not choked up about this. Steve wants to know what this "old bat" was doing on the train by herself. "When someone falls you are not allowed to pick up the individual due to neck and back injuries."- Steve
Lil' D says, "Her kids deserve to get punched in the face because who puts her 80 year old scared mother on a train by herself?" He also thinks that if this is "hope for humanity" like Slacker thinks he is extremely saddened about it because he thinks should be happening every day.
Is this an act of being a good human and going above and beyond or just what everyone should be doing daily?
I think this is ridiculous. People should be helping each other every day! Why should we be surprised when strangers help strangers? Is helping one another really that uncommon that it is shocking when it does happen? Obviously. Completely agree with Steve and Lil' D one hundred percent.

Today we are playing our favorite game, Drunk or Kid!
Lil D' gave two examples on how to play the game by taking stories and making them personal.
First example: He went to the zoo this past Friday in the middle of the day and decided he needed a closer look at the jaguars. He fell in and got attacked. He was bitten in the neck and in the leg.
Slacker thinks it was a kid.
Steve thinks it was a drunk.
Second example: He wanted to go out on the town but had no transportation so he decided to take his lawnmower and strap flashlights to the hood. He got pulled over by the police and after they followed for him for a while and almost getting hit by a car. He got ticketed for violating traffic laws.
Slacker thinks it was a drunk.
Steve thinks it was a kid.
Amy is having a huge dilemma. She promised her daughter that she would pay for her college if she received straight As. Well her daughter did receive good grades and now Amy is unable to pay for her college thus further. Amy has paid for one year already but cannot seem to even make her own rent. Amy has tried everything. She downgraded her apartment and picked up a second job. She feels like a failure and has no idea how to inform her daughter that the tuition check bounced and she cannot pay any further.
Slacker says is Amy cannot pay right now then her daughter cannot return to college. He told Amy that your daughter will not hate her for this because it is your daughter and she will understand. He thinks as kids you depend on your parents so much that when a parent does fail it is devastating but this is not Amy's fault. Slacker's parents never let him down because they never promised him anything.
Steve is glad that Amy has tried everything she could to pay for her daughter's college. Even though her daughter's life is going to be messed up for a while, Steve says everything will be okay in the end.
How should Amy tell her daughter? How can Amy not feel as a failure as a parent?
I think that Amy should sit her daughter down at a dinner and explain the situation as blunt as possible and if her daughter gets mad then she should find a way to pay for her own child. It may be a letdown but life happens and sometimes people are completely unable to make promises come true. She should not feel like a failure because she has tried absolutely everything to pay for this tuition.
Man in New York called police informing them that his roommate was plotting to kill President Obama with two assault rifles when he came to town in late August. The police responded with helicopters and numerous SWAT cars. The entire the scheme was made up. The roommate who had called the police lied because he was jealous of his roommate's girlfriend. The man was charged for making a false statement. After a night of drinking (go figure), 26-year-old Sellers realized that her roommate, 42-year-old Carlos Ortiz, had thrown away her old leftover spaghetti and meatballs. So instead of talking to Ortiz about it (better yet .. .letting it go!!), Sellers started to pour nail polish remover on top of various objects in the room ... AND THEN BEGAN LIGHTING THEM ON FIRE. The flames jumped onto Ortiz, who was burned so badly that he was rushed to the hospital and is in critical condition. Sellers has been charged with aggravated battery and attempted murder and it'll probably come as a shock to no one that the woman has prior arrests for battery and robbery. Maybe next time get a separate fridge ... oh, and also don't be totally insane. Woman stabbed roommate who laughed at her for being drunken Ohio woman slashed her roommate's face after being laughed at for being drunk. The woman had been drinking from the night before and got mad when her roommate began laughing. She grabbed her roommate by the shirt and shoved her. The woman followed that up by grabbing a knife and giving the victim a three inch gash on her forehead. He ran from the apartment but was caught a short time later. The woman was charged with felonious assault. The Thomasville, Georgia police recently busted Desma Brown for credit card fraud. She used her roommate's credit card to order $428 worth of clothing. He called the police after receiving his bank statement. Cops received a tip that Brown was hiding at a nearby house. They busted in and found her curled up in the oven.
Slacker thinks that the man who made up the lie about his roommate threatening to kill Obama should have gotten more charges than just making a false statement. Slacker thinks that Chef Boyardee is disgusting and cannot believe that Steve eats it regularly.
Steve loves Chef Boyardee and always gets the big cans. He says he wishes there was a big can of just meatballs because sometimes he just picks out the meatballs in the spaghetti and meatball cans.
We've all heard them! Stereotypes about women being weaker than men, women can't drive to save their life, men are lazy slobs. "White girls" love being tan, love Uggs, and Starbucks, of course! The list goes on and on about every single person! Some are true, some are just horrendous.
Slacker said there was a story about a UPS worker bowling with a package! It says fragile on the box and he's going crazy with that thing. When Slacker was working with the airlines baggage, if someone wrote on theirs saying anything like, "please be careful." He would toss that thing a little harder purposefully! Slacker's "white girl" stereotype is he treats his iPhone like a breathing person, he loves that thing. He had a friend who is a black guy and he would get mad, wanting to fight people if they would start talking about ribs, he didn't even like BBQ!
Steve says if he is going on a trip, he would put bowling balls in his bag just to make it harder for the workers. Steve is half Hispanic and breaks all the rules, he doesn't do spicy food, can't speak the language, and he doesn't landscape. He can say that because it's part of his stereotype!
What stereotypes do you fulfill or are the exact opposite of a typical stereotype?
A woman sues Google after her boob was shown on Street View! She claimed she was sitting on her porch reading the paper when a Google Street View car passed by. She went online to see the result and saw her face was blurred, but an un-blurred home address, car license plate, and her exposed breast after her shirt dropped down! She won the case and received $2,250 settlement from Google. Now her entire body and house is blurred. Pam Anderson also had her entire right breast exposed when her dress fell down recently. Luckily for Pam, the 47-year-old mother of two looks pretty amazing for her age.
Slacker has one accent for just about everyone he does an impression for… FYI. Slacker says boobs are edamame. Edamame is good, but he doesn't think about edamame as much as Steve does.
Steve doesn't think all boobie pop outs are a bad thing! Is Slacker really comparing boobs to sushi?
Lil D says his wife has no problem whipping her boobie's out. They were out to eat and her daughter was in the highchair and she was getting ready to breastfeed, pulling out the cover up and all that good stuff. Their other child got curious and ripped off her cover and yelled, "What's that!" Lil D had to save the day and even use his shirt to cover up the breast!
What's your mommy-part pop out moment?
When I was at Water World a few summers back, I was in the wave pool with my family and I definitely went too far in. Once I got hit by the first wave, my top was gone! I had to wait for the waves to stop for me to be able to stand up and find my top! Also I had to say, the guys all mentioned an "awesome blossom" on air saying they don't make those at Outback or certain restaurants anymore, but I'd like to prove them wrong! I work at Texas Roadhouse and we totally have and sell those blossoms!
The decisions your ex makes shouldn't have any impact on your life...unless your ex does what today's OPP's did!
Yi! When my ex and I broke up, one of the main reasons was because he was adamant that he never wanted to have kids. But I just found out that his girlfriend of a year and a half is pregnant! I feel totally hurt by this and can't get it out of my mind – so much so that I want to confront him about it. Do I have the right to feel hurt? Should I say something to him about it? Help!
Slacker asks did this guy just not want to have kids with HER? Maybe she feels as though she wasn't worthy enough to have his kids and she wants closure by talking to him. It's none of her business! Slacker says it's called a "starter wife." You weren't going to be the one he wants to marry but you convinced him he wanted to have kids, he just didn't want that with you. This relationship is kind of old anyway; she shouldn't be worrying about it.
Steve said he knew dudes who were with girls and told them they never wanted to get married or have kids, but as soon as they break up with you, their new girlfriend gets all that!
What's your advice for Anna?
Of course she has the right to be hurt by it, if this is what caused them to break up in the first place, BUT! Do not confront him about it; there is literally nothing you can do about it now. She's already pregnant and it's happening. It's an awful feeling but talking to him won't make it any better or go away. Move on by yourself.
A Montana man attacked his hunting buddy after he turned down his sexual advances. The victim said his friend grabbed him by the neck and rubbed his body against his. The man also grabbed his groin and told his friend, "You know what this is about." The cops arrived and found the man slamming on the victim's garage door. He was over three times the legal limit. The man was charged with felony assault with a weapon Monday, but posted $10,000 bail and was released from jail after about 12 hours.
Slacker thinks when you're hunting you have nothing else to do during down time besides be quiet, talk maybe, and drink. Slacker says it's not really a good idea to try something you're not sure the other dude is into when you're both drunk with guns and knives. Someone who works with S&S ran into a pizza shop to grab a fast pizza and her dad dropped her in front, and then parked the car. A very similar car pulls up in the same spot so when she comes back outside, she jumps in. The dude in the front seat says "hi!" Awkward! Slacker had a similar experience. His wife and him were having drinks, lots of drinks, at a restaurant and planned on having Uber take them home. When the ride got there, the guy called and said, "I'm outside in a black SUV." They run out front and jumped into the black SUV and start saying, "Let's go! Let's get home!" The poor guy in the front seat is so confused. Slacker mentions Uber and the guy has no idea what that even is. They definitely crawled out of that car with shame.
Steve was road raging with someone for his "first time!" They eventually got their separate ways but pull up at the same building. They also were going to the same floor, turns out that was his HR director. Yikes!
What's the most awkward moment you've ever had?!
I had a pretty awkward moment today actually. I sold my one-year-old puppy yesterday because I was moving back into my mom's house and she didn't want him there, but I regretted it immediately. I called the people today to get him back and when I arrived to pick him up, I was getting yelled at for "crushing a seven-year-olds dreams" and I should pay them for breaking all their hearts, I'm evil, and a lot else. It was so uncomfortable but at least I got my little guy back!
Since it is Halloween we thought today we should talk about ghost stories! Guy and Kathie Clauson tell Philly.com that their Pottstown, Pennsylvania home is haunted. She says the 1870 Victorian house is included on Zillow’s list of “Real Life Haunted Houses For Sale”. “It’s very weird; it’s hard to explain. It’s almost feels like you have someone watching over you in a weird way. We have spotted dark figures, heard strange noises, and seen doors open, faucets run and lights flicker. Things were thrown, doors were slammed. A speaker hit my husband, and a door flew into his back when there was no breeze or anything.” Guy tells the paper: “Initially we just thought it was an old house with bad lighting and wiring. I came home one day and the house felt cold. I walked up to the second floor, and saw the door to the deck off the bedroom was wide open, and there was snow pouring in the house. I then heard a loud noise of running water, so I walked into the bathroom and both facets were turned all the way on.” London's Chiltern Railways has hired a ''supernatural liaison officer" to deal with a haunted train station. Nick Rees says passengers and staffers have seen ghosts. He says the spirits respect him. "I get on with people and I can make anyone smile. I suppose that's why I can go about my duties as a supernatural liaison officer. I respect them and they respect me. One of the haunted areas is a disused basement on platform three which has a partially blocked off staircase that seemingly leads to nowhere. The other area is the upstairs office building where staff regularly see and hear things including doors slamming and electrical equipment turning on and off."
Slacker thinks even though Steve does not believe in ghosts he thinks he has the best ghost story. Slacker loves Steve’s ghost story!
Steve thinks ghosts do not exist. Steve has a great Uncle Dan who always gave Steve cold Hershey bars. Steve went with his dad to his uncle’s house which had no power in the blazing hot summer a week after the family had cleaned out the house. Steve’s dad was the only one with the keys to the house. They got to the house and his dad opened the freezer door and found something that stricken him with fear. His dad dropped whatever was in the freezer and hustled Steve out of the house. Steve did not find out what was in the freezer until his dad was on his death bed. His dad had found Hershey bars that were still cool to the touch. Steve thinks there is an explanation.
What are your ghost stories and experiences?
My house is haunted. I have had a ton of experiences in my house since I was little. A woman had died in my house right before my parents purchased the house and I see her all the time walking around my house. She is tricky though. Sometimes during the night my drawers will be pulled out and I’ll find them in the morning. Sometimes things fly off the shelf. Sometimes she pokes you or strokes your hair. To all the skepticals out there are more than welcome to come stay a night at my house.
Today’s OPP is from Allison!
My boyfriend, Tom, can be a really sweet and sensitive guy. But when it comes to "women's issues," he really misses the mark. We like to do really physical stuff on the weekends like hiking, swimming and mountain biking. But when I get hit with really bad cramps, I can't even get out of bed. The problem is made worse by Tom who accuses me of being lazy and making up excuses. How do I convince him that cramps are REAL and that when I say I can't get up, I'm not joking around?? –Alison
Slacker asks, “Are cramps real?” He thinks that women’s “stuff” freaks guys out but the cramps that come with “that time of the month” are used as excuses way too often. Slacker found an article that said pregnancy cravings are not real and women use that to not feel guilty for eating unhealthy and he wants to know, “Is PMS the same thing for getting out of things?”
Steve says, “Cramps are real but they can also be used for an excuse from time to time.” Steve thinks if the cramps are that bad she needs to go get some help. “Cramps are not always real” Steve says.
What can Allison do to convince her boyfriend that her cramps are real?
I think Allison needs to sit down and slowly explain the menstrual cycle and the symptoms that come along with it to her boyfriend because cramping is definitely a real issue.
