Best Job Ever/Work Perks

YI!

Sometimes you can actually enjoy your job! Crazy right? Job perks make work fun and worth- while! Today we're talking job perks and the coolest jobs ever received! Richard Littauer owns his own company called The User Is Drunk and he gets paid to get drunk! Companies pay him $250 to get drunk and test their websites and apps to test if they are drunk friendly. Richard says, ''I intend to drink responsibly. I have close friends checking in with me regularly to make sure this doesn't become a problem for me. I'll do this once or twice a week, and limit the number of clients.'' Have you ever wanted to be a brothel tester? Well a brothel in Berlin, Germany is looking for one. The ad on KaufMich.com reads, "Practical experience with many years of brothel visits necessary. You should enjoy having fun with people and you should not be afraid of contact. People with a university degree, preferably a degree in business and a full health certificate showing they are disease free are sought. A multilingual person is also desired, with knowledge of French a particular advantage.''

Slacker says that for Richard's job he would work 80 hours a week. He says he is also considering applying for the Berlin, Germany brothel ad. He says that he thought the best job in the world was to be a restaurant critic but he says you have to eat a lot of weird things. He has always wanted to work at a big box store because he would get 50% off on tools but turns out employees only get 5% discount.

Steve says that he could never be a restaurant critic because he hates vegetables.

What is the sweetest job you have ever had?

Parents Forced Me

Yi!
 
I’m sure we can all remember at least one thing that your parents forced you to do when you were younger, but this woman might have taken it too far!
 
A video has gone viral of a pushy mom in Chicago who seems to be forcing her daughter to get her ears pierced. In the video, the young girl is pleading to not have her ears pierced while her mom is holding her down and even threating her saying, “You stay just like that. You put your hand up there and I’m going to punch you…” The video was posted on Facebook with the caption, “This lil girl nearly lost her damn mind when I was trying to Pierce her ears yall gotta watch this til the end.” The video has since been deleted from Facebook but can be found on YouTube.
 
Slacker was forced into band classes when he was younger. He said he was learning to play guitar and was feeling pretty cool then his mom made him join the band and had to play the baritone bassoon.
 
Steve had to take ballet classes because his sister was in it. He said that he and some of his guy friends went to one or two classes because they were athletes and thought it might help them.
 
Is there anything that your parents forced you to do?

Hillbilly Hookups

Yi!
 
Maybe it was while you were on your motorcycle. Maybe it was while you were at the park. Maybe it was while you were in your neighbor's hot tub. Sometimes the mood just hits you and it's not always in the most appropriate places. We like to call these "Hillbilly Hookups."
 
India police recently cited a couple for making love while riding on a motorcycle! The woman laid back on the handlebars and gas tank and her lover straddled her while speeding down the highway. A picture was posted on Facebook and a high-ranking policeman saw it. The cops tracked the cycle to a rental shop and the owner gave detectives the renter’s home address. The couple was fined $20.
 
Florida police said they got a call about a man and woman who were having sex near a playground. An officer walked up a saw a man kneeling inside of a truck on the seat with a pair of feet dangling out of the driver’s side door. The officer said it was clear the two were having sex and according to the report, the woman looked up, saw the officer and said, “We are going to jail.”
 
A couple in Minnesota was caught having relations in someone else’s hot tub! A 52-year-old woman and a 22-year-old man were “caught in the act” when the homeowner walked outside to find strangers having fun in their hot tub and decided to call the police. The cops said that the temperature was in the 20’s outside and were still in the hot tub when they arrived. The couple was cited for disorderly conduct.
 
Slacker thinks it’s pretty impressive that the couple in India were able to have relations while speeding down the highway on a motorcycle.
 
Steve says that he has had relations in the back and on the hood of his pick-up truck!
 
Do you have any Hillbilly Hookup stories? We want to hear about them!

OPP: Son Stealing Makeup

Yi!
 
Today’s OPP caught her son stealing and she isn’t sure what to do about it. However, it wasn’t something that most teenage boys normally steal. Here is what Cindy has to say:
 
Yi! I’m freaking out because I went into my son’s room to clean up and I found one of my mascara bottles and pink eye shadows. After doing some digging around, I found a whole stash of makeup that I thought I misplaced. I think my son might be wearing this stuff outside. I’m not sure if I should worry or not, but deep down I don't believe wearing makeup is something a young man should be doing. I don’t want to embarrass him, but I think we should have a talk. Do you guys think I should have a sit down with him?
-Cindy
 
Slacker says that he doesn’t really have any experience in this situation so he doesn’t really know what to say to Cindy. Slacker remembers that he once stole a camisole from his mom and wore it a few times.
 
Steve thinks that Cindy might be more worried about her image as a parent rather than what her son is going through.
 
What do you think Cindy should do?

Single Dad Dilemma

Yi!
 
A friend of the show has a teenager who is going through a really tough time.  He is a single dad whose 14-year-old daughter is struggling with her weight. She is being teased at school and now it seems that she is obsessed with losing weight. He thinks that she may be starting to form unhealthy habits and wants to help her but doesn’t know what to say.
 
Slacker says that it has to be hard for the daughter because kids these days are so judgmental. He says that the obvious answer for the dad is to tell his daughter that she is beautiful no matter what. He also knows that the daughter might not believe her dad when he says that, so it might not help.
 
Steve thinks it might be a good idea to talk to the school nurse for help. Maybe the nurse could help the him talk to his daughter and help the daughter to lose weight, if thats what she wants.
 
Do you have any advice for how this single dad should handle this situation?

I’ve Slept Through _____.

Yi!
 
A four-year-old girl in Philadelphia was able to sneak out of the house at 3AM without her parents waking up! The young girl got on a bus and kept chanting “All I want is a slushie!”.  The bus driver stopped and called the police. She was taken to a hospital and was reunited with her parents. The parents were not charged because they never heard the girl leave!
 
A man was awoken by Firefighters after he fell asleep while cooking food in his apartment! Firefighters in Reading West saved a man who slept through a kitchen fire. One of the firefighters said he believed the man had put something in the oven after returning home from the pub before falling asleep. The firefighter added, “We broke in to the home, woke him up and brought him out. He had a little bit of smoke inhalation but nothing too bad; he didn't have to go to hospital."
 
A woman ending up falling asleep outside a Canadian bar when it was -22 degrees Fahrenheit! She was drunk and ended up getting severe frostbite on her hands and fingers. The woman, who moved to Canada from Australia four years ago, said she told her pals she was going to have a cigarette before disappearing into the bone-and finger-chilling outdoors without her jacket and gloves. She was found three hours later, trying to sleep while curled up and with her fingers a nasty shade of purple. “It was 5:45 a.m. when I was found. At 6:30 a nurse told me that best-case scenario I keep my fingers … worst case I lose my hands,” she said.
 
Slacker says that Steve falls asleep through important stuff all the time! He also says when you have kids you have to be aware of every noise that goes on, even when you are asleep. Kids can sleep through anything, including fire alarms!
 
Steve says that he’s not really sleeping when Slacker thinks he is!

Pranks

Yi!
 
April Fool’s Day is coming up! A new survey by Harris reveals that 37% of people anticipate being the target of a least one prank this April Fool’s Day.
 
A New Jersey man decided to prank his pregnant girlfriend by putting a ring box in her sock drawer, but what was inside the box wasn’t what she expected! The woman, who was first shocked to find the box, got another shock when she actually opened it to find and note that read, “LOL, JK”.  The man posted an image of the note on Reddit with the caption, “I set a trap for my girlfriend in my sock drawer on laundry day, and she fell for it.”  Everyone online said that he was the worst boyfriend ever! But he says his girlfriend found the prank funny and she is the only one he needs to please.
 
Slacker remembers his parents would prank him when he was a kid. He said they would “pretend” to leave him places and tell him that he was adopted.
 
Steve said he’s not afraid of being pranked because, “You have to be liked by people to be pranked”!

OPP: Lost the Ring

Yi!
 
We’re pretty sure that there are plenty of women that don’t really like their wedding ring. The wife of Today’s OPP isn’t really happy with her ring and wanted an upgrade.  Here is the problem that Landon is facing:
 
Yi! My wife asked for an upgrade on her ring and I told her we would probably have to wait a few years. Now her ring is missing. She says she went to the gym and took it off to workout. She said it must have fallen out of her locker at some point or someone stole it because she couldn't find it anywhere when she was getting ready. She wants me to get her another one but I think she lost it on purpose. I don't think she should get a new ring. I think she should have to go without one to teach her a lesson. What do you guys think? New ring or no ring?
-Landon
 
Slacker thinks the timing of the whole situation really shows what really happened. He thinks she intentionally lost the ring! However, he does understand that rings do get lost sometimes; he just doesn’t believe that she actually lost it.
 
Steve thinks it could be bad if she doesn’t have her ring on. The ring is “marking his territory” and if she isn’t wearing it, she might be getting hit on by other guys! Steve thinks he should just buy her a new ring and be done with the situation.
 
What do you think Landon should do?

Naked

Yi!
 
A Massachusetts man is in trouble for working out naked in his home.  The reason for him getting in trouble is because there was a bus full of school kids parked out front! A school bus full of kids was shocked when they saw a naked man working out threw his glass front door. Seven students told their guidance counselor that they saw him while parked outside of the house. His neighbors defended the man and said he works out naked because he likes the way the sun feels on his body. They also said he wasn’t seeking attention and isn’t trying to get people to look at him. The police disagreed with the neighbors and charged him with indecent exposure.
 
A motorcyclist in Pakistani was arrested after the cops caught him riding naked in public. One officer said, “We arrested (him) on Saturday for over speeding, violating traffic rules and for revealing his private organs in public, He's still in police custody though all three offenses are bailable.” The naked rider goes by the nickname “Rocket” and had a bet with his friends he could pull of the nude stunt.
 
Slacker doesn’t understand why anyone would ever ride a motorcycle naked! The point of wearing the leather and protective gear is so that if you fall off your bike, you’re not dead! Slacker said if that guy would have fallen off his bike, he would have suffered from a whole other level of road rash!
 
Steve says that he isn’t naked as often as Slacker thinks! Slacker says that if he lived alone like Steve, he would be naked ALL THE TIME! Steve said that he does walk around the house naked sometimes, but he has clothes on for the majority of the time.
 
Do you have any crazy naked stories? We want to hear about them!?

Blackmail

YI!
 
Blackmail is a crime but we all have done it at least once! Jeremy Renner is in hot water after his ex-wife is threatening to blackmail him over her citizenship. She is threatening to release intimate and embarrassing footage of him if he ever went back on his promise to help her get her green card. Jeremy states that Sonni has repeatedly admitted that she only married him to get a green card and to be financially stable. His wife, Sonni Pacheco, is gunning for full custody of their 2-year-old child, Ava. He wants full custody of Ava and claims that Sonni is a bad parent due to her amount of partying at drug partaking. He says that she left their daughter alone at her house and went partying without someone watching Ava. Sonni’s roommate has filed a declaration that she smokes and drinks and even stopped breastfeeding because she felt guilty she was drinking alcohol. The roommate also stated that she did cocaine on a vacation right after she gave birth to Ava. Earlier we had a caller this week that disclosed some sticky information about a woman she knows. The woman slept with a man for financial gain and a new car! She was a nanny for a wealthy family. She started sleeping with the husband and threatened him to buy her a brand new car or he will tell his wife. So he bought her a car and she still told his wife!
 
Slacker says that he has definitely thought about blackmailing. He says that he would only blackmail an individual to save a marriage and not for money.
 
Steve says that he could have blackmailed someone but chose not to.
 
Have you ever been blackmailed or have ever blackmailed someone?

OPP: Giving Wife Pot

YI!
 
Today’s OPP is from Aaron.
 
 Yi guys,
I'm not really sure why I'm writing this to you but I guess I need some advice. My wife started a new job 2 years ago and is always stressed out. She's the type of person that is high anxiety anyway but the job has really put her over the top. She's not very open to trying new things, so I've been sneaking her edibles the last few months to chill her out. It's really helped and she says it's the happiest she's been in a long time. My question is should I tell her why she's been so happy or just keep giving them to her? I think if she knew she would stop taking them and go back to being stressed out all the time. What should I do?-Aaron
 
Slacker thinks that THC will be in our water and food supply sooner than later. He says that it would be nice to have an edible after a stressful day. Slacker says that if his wife did this to him he would have an issue with it. He thinks that she needs to be told.
 
Steve says this is awesome! He says that he knows a guy who is allergic to THC so for Aaron to be giving his wife edibles are kind of dangerous. He says do all spouses sneak around each other and not confront each other? He brings up a great point, what happens when your work starts drug testing? He thinks that he should not tell her because they have gone this far.
 
Should Aaron tell his wife or should he just keep giving them to her?

Best Day of Your Life

YI!
 
Best day ever. Have you had one? It’s hard to think back and think which day would be our best day ever. Maybe it was a day where you hung out with rock stars and got to play on stage with them during their concert. Maybe it was when you were stuck in coach on a seven hour flight and got bumped up to first class!
 
Slacker’s best day ever was a day on tour. He saved al of his money on the road and when they hit Minnesota. He was playing at this club called the Mirage. They dropped their tour boss off and took a limo into their show. He had a ton of money and drove to the airport and got a flight home. The girl next to him on the plane hooked up with him and welcomed him into the Mile High Club!
 
Steve says that his best day ever is every day because all of his days are epic. He says that when he pitched a no hitter game in a baseball tournament with scouts watching him. He got to go play baseball in California and in the same day his parents got him a new car!
 
Lil’ D says that his best day ever was the day he got to live like a rock star. He got to drive around Darius Rucker and run all of his errands with him. He says they basically turned into best friends. Lil’ D got to go on the tour bus, do shots of whiskey, and gets to go on stage with Darius Rucker. He says it was better than first row!
 
What was your best day ever?
 
The day I was born was my best day ever.

Liar

YI!
 
Lying, everyone does it, big or small! But we want to discuss BIG lies! A Dubai man is facing his lying wife in court! He is suing his wife for 544,000 dollars because she faked pregnancy and miscarriages. The man wants compensation for psychological and financial harm due to his wife’s lies. The man says that he was married to his wife for 11 years without knowing that she was infertile. The only way the husband found out about his wife’s lies by carrying out a discreet investigation. He also wants the money back that was spent on fertility treatment. A New Jersey man has admitted to lying about being car-jacked! He told his insurance company that he was car-jacked to collect 38 thousand dollars from the insurance company. The man claimed that he was point blank in the barrel of an assault rifle and that his cell phone was stolen as well as his car. The authorities found his Mercedes S-550 the next day with the windshield and headlights smashed out. However, the police checked surveillance and found no signs of his car being where he said he was when he was car-jacked. The man pleaded guilty on Monday to insurance fraud and is facing up four years in prison. A teacher is under fire this week after she lied about missing school due to a dental surgery she was having, but really she was on the beaches in the Turks and Caicos Islands for her birthday. The woman posted her beach birthday on Facebook and a “friend” disclosed the information to the school she taught at. She obviously got fired and she refused to speak with investigators.
 
Slacker knows a person who is a delivery guy. He delivers “stuff.” Slacker says he was making a delivery to an office and noticed that the cute receptionist had a cast on her arm and her coworkers had to help her. Great story right? Two nights later was in the store and happened to see the receptionist and her boyfriend. She did not have the cast on and was swinging her arm all around the place. The next day his friend went back to the office to make another delivery and saw that the cast was on!
 
Steve says that the woman wore the cast to get sympathy and not have to work! He thinks it’s a great idea!

OPP: Don't Know the Dad

YI!
 
Candy is in college and is has just encountered a life changing happening. She is pregnant and only 20-years-old. She has had unprotected relations with two different men, and does not know which one is the father of her child. One of the men was her boyfriend and the other one was a friend. The two different sexual encounters were only a day apart. Candy wants the father of her baby to be her boyfriend.  She says that she does want to be a mother. She is wondering if she should even keep the baby and if she should tell both potential fathers. She needs some serious advice.
 
Slacker says that he is sure that many women have been in the same situation. He is confused on what she should do but he is leaning towards what Steve thinks Candy should do, don’t say anything and “dupe” her boyfriend.
 
Steve says pick the father who has more money! He asks, “Do the two men look similar?” Candy answers, “No. One is white and one is Hispanic.” Steve says that she should “dupe” the guys.  
 
What advice do you have for Candy?
 
I think Candy needs to discuss the circumstance with both fathers and absolutely not abort the child because she obviously thought she was mature enough to have unprotected relations with two different men, than she should be mature enough to not kill her child. Many individuals do not have the opportunity to be parents, so Candy needs to seriously consider adoption.

GMD: Post-Operation Care Giver

Allison and her husband are having a disagreement. She is undergoing a feminine surgery and is being picky when it comes to who is going to take care of her after the surgery. Allison wants her mother and sister to care for her post operation. Her husband Steve is upset because he wants to take care of her because she is his wife and he loves her. She says that her mother and sister will understand what is going on and she says that Steve has a lot on his plate. She says that her mother and sister will be a lot more helpful. Allison thinks that Steve’s stomach is too weak to help her post op. Steve says he is supposed to step up and he is willing to step up. He says he wants to adjust everything for Allison. His feelings are hurt. He says in sickness and in health.
 
Slacker says that all Steve wants to do is to be the “hero.” He says that he is confused on who is right in this situation. He says that he cannot force her to let him take care of her.
 
Steve says, “It’s the thought that counts and I am sure Allison is extremely appreciative of his efforts.”
 
Whose side are you on?
 
I am on Allison’s side because this is a woman’s problem and Steve is a man and will not understand.

Skunk Stories

YI!
 
Skunks are stinky and actor Sean Penn can tell you all about it! He was recently sprayed in the leg by a skunk after relaxing in his garden! His wife Charlize Theron says, “Sean was relaxing in Charlize’s garden when … ‘SHRIIIEEEEK!’ … he ran in yelling he’d been skunk-sprayed in the leg! Even after ditching trou, and de-odorizing, Charlize still banished Stinky to a guest room because his gamy gams made her GAG!” They are stinky but boy are they cute! Police officers in Wisconsin had an encounter with a skunk who had its head stuck in a dog toy! The officers grabbed a device to remove the toy and they were trying hard not to get sprayed. They removed the toy without getting stinky and released the skunk unharmed into the wild! Central Texas animal control officer was not so lucky. He did not get sprayed, but worse, bitten! The officer was trying to capture the animal but unfortunately got a little too close to the skunk’s mouth. He received a rabies vaccination after being bitten by a cat earlier in the year. He was still treated with booster shots. The skunk was unharmed and in good health.
 
Slacker he thinks that Sean Penn is a wuss because he only got sprayed in the leg. He thinks that Charlize Theron is gorgeous and serves Sean Penn right that he had to stay in their guest house. Slacker says that his dog was sprayed by a skunk and they had no way to get rid of the smell so they let their dog roll around in other stinky things because anything else smells better than the stench of a skunk.
 
Steve says that tomato juice will take away the stink of a stunk.
 
Lil’ D says that he and his family are skunk magnets. One time when they were camping, his family was eating on the picnic bench, and a skunk jumped in his brothers lap and ate off his plate, baked beans to be exact. He stayed very still, and after the skunk was done eating, he left and went back to the bushes!  
 
What are your stinky skunk stories? Have you ever been skunked?

Overreacted

YI!
 
Overreaction is a common thing amongst humans. A 26-year-old woman in England named, Kelly Smith got a nose job and the reason why will shock you. She was inspired to get a nose job after receiving a rude comment on a train from a random stranger. The comment was, “Wow, you are really beautiful. Except for your nose. It’s huge!” Kelly was so traumatized by the comment that she immediately scheduled a Rhinoplasty. She claims it is the best thing she has ever done and at least she did not get shot in the buttocks for it like a Louisiana boy! A Louisiana father shot his son in the butt after a lack of orange juice in the carton. The fight escalated dramatically, he broke a glass vase, ran outside, and got shots fired at him. The son’s dad fired three shots at him while he was running outside of their house and into the street. He unfortunately got shot in his butt, but at least that won’t happen again because his dad is going to jail and getting charged with attempted manslaughter and illegal use of a dangerous weapon. A Florida woman wiped dog feces on her neighbor after her neighbor’s dog went to the bathroom in her yard! The victim was screaming and had poop on her hands and shirt. The neighbor was charged with battery. Home Depot fired an employee in New York after his tattoo of his girlfriend’s name, Isis, began to offend customer and other staff members. However, the tattoo is located on his inner lip and did not realize it shared the name with the terrorist organization. Home Depot says that the tattoo was involved in the firing of their employee but not the only reason. The man is no longer with his girlfriend but is taking legal action against his manager and Home Depot.
 
Slacker says who cares of someone random comments on your looks! He thinks you shouldn’t change yourself based on one opinion of a random stranger. He says that he had many neighbor’s dogs had pooped on his yard and he wanted to rub poop on all of their faces! Overreaction? I think not!
 
Steve says that the boy probably got shot because the orange juice was not fresh squeezed!
 
When have you overreacted or went a little overboard?

OPP: Don't Want Her to Get PhD

YI!
 
Mark and his girlfriend just graduated college and he is more than ready to start settling down, but she isn’t. They have been together for four years. She wants to go back to school to receive her PhD. That’s nice however the college she wants to attend is across the country. He does not want to do a long distance relationship and really wants to start a family. Also, Mike says that is she receives her PhD then that will make her the bread winner and he does not want that because he wants to be the bread winner. He wants to the man of the family! Mike says that he also cannot move with her because he is committed to his job.
 
Slacker says that he thinks that Mike and his girlfriend have been together and are strong enough to have a long distance relationship. He thinks that Mike needs to approach his girlfriend in a different manner and keep it focused on them starting a family rather than her making more money than him. He says that he is not threatened by a woman who makes more than him.
 
Steve says long distance never works and they should just break up. He says Mike should not even go to the point about getting into discussion with his girlfriend about her making more money than him if she gets her PhD. He thinks that he needs to go find a woman that does not have any goals to be educated and make money. Steve says he loves women who make more money than him because if he does get married and then they get divorced he basically gets paid.
 
How can he convince her to stay?

Frank Angley was having a bad day after he had a heart attack and collapsed to the ground in his driveway. He was on his knees suffering in pain and a passerby decided to make a decision that wins him the Worst Person of the Decade Award. He stole from him. The male reached in Frank’s back pocket and took his wallet and removed the $728 dollars that was in it. Frank’s cellphone was on the ground beside him and the thief did not bother to call 911. Someone else nearby Frank stopped and called for help. He was trying to get his Nitro pills but then collapsed completely.

Shoulda Hired A Pro

Yi!
 
Should have hired a pro! A 35-year-old father decided to make some changes to his face. On a drunken night in England this man decided to tattoo three tear drops on his face, underneath his eyes. He used his homemade tattoo gun but had no ink so he used ink from his printer cartridge.  He lost his job the next day and tried to remove his tattoos with a cheese grater… Yes, I said that correctly. He is currently in the process of using laser removal. He should have hired a tattoo professional!
 
Slacker says that Steve and his friend tried to DIY bathroom and he inspired him to always go to a professional. He says that Lil’ D replaced his brakes on his car but watching a YouTube tutorial. Slacker wants to fix things around his house but Steve has been trying to tell him that DIY projects are never a good idea.
 
Steve says, “This guy’s face is worse than a prison tattoo!” He says that he will never do another DIY project on his house due to to the endless amounts of destruction  and money.
 
When have you gotten in over your head and decided that you should have hired a pro?

OPP: Making Sandwiches

Yi!
 
Kelly is a stay at home mom and her husband goes to work. She may stay at home with the kids, which is a task within itself, but her husband is treating Kelly like his mother. She does his laundry, ironing, and even sandwich making. He wants Kelly to “do the little things.” Kelly wants to sit down, relax, and take a shower, but with serving him and kids she does not have time. She says that she is responsible for the children but not for him. She says that she loves him but her husband did not act like this previously. She wants him to grow up and become a man.
 
Slacker says, “Then she should get her own damn money!” He says that his wife is a stay at home mom and she takes care of most of everything in the house. They use teamwork. He makes the money and she takes care of the household.
 
Steve says that she made the choice to be a stay at home mom. He says that she is being unappreciative.
 
How can she change her husband into a man?
 
He makes the money. She should take care of the entire household. Not serving him but definitely not complain for doing some of his laundry.

Sneeze

Yi!
 
HA HA HA CHUUUU!!!!!!!! Sneezing can be dangerous, very dangerous. Just ask the professional baseball player Kevin Pillar, outfielder for the Blue Jays! He will not likely be starting in the outfield opening day due to a sneeze! While sneezing he received a Grade 1 strain to his right oblique. He is the third player in the Blue Jays career that has received an injury while sneezing. They are suspecting all the sneezing is due to the change in grass from turf to real. A doctor says in Canada says that sneezing can cause paralysis. Dr. Mark Cereceda says that he had a patient who dislocated bones in her vertebrae due to a sneeze. His recommendation, don’t hold in a sneeze! A 79- year- old woman died after sneezing while driving. She rolled her car and did not pass away at the scene, but did later at the hospital. Public Service Announcement: Be Careful While Sneezing!
 
Slacker says that he is an extremely loud sneezer and his kids have asked him to stop sneezing like that. He says he can’t help it because it just comes out like that. Slacker says there is nothing that makes him more mad the Lil’ D holding in a sneeze. He says, let it go, let it goooo!
 
Steve says that he can leave one eye open while sneezing. Supposedly an impossible feat but of course Steve overcomes the impossible!
 
What is the strangest thing to happen to you while sneezing?

OPP: Snooping in Kids Rooms

Yi!
 
Today’s OPP is from Becca.

Yi! I remarried and we have a combined 6 tweens and teens. My husband and I are privately fighting over whether or not to snoop through our kids' rooms. I think it's ok and almost necessary in today's world. He disagrees and thinks kids should be trusted until they make a mistake. Who's right - me or him? –Becca
 
Slacker says that is a nightmare house! He says that he can agree with both sides. He says that trust has to be earned, so he understands snooping and if after snooping and nothing is found then the trust is earned.
 
Steve says that he is very experienced in snooping. He says that snooping is just teaching your kids to hide things better.   
 
Who is right- Becca or her husband?
 
I completely agree with Becca’s husband. Trust your kids until they prove you otherwise.

GMD: Taking Dad's Driver's License

Yi!
 
Kristen and her sister are having a major disagreement regarding the well -being of their dad! Kristen wants to take away her dad’s license because he older, senile and get lost extremely easy. Ann thinks that Kristen is over reacting and is “jumping the gun.” She says that he is only 73-years-old and everyone is forgetful. Kristen says that if they don’t take his keys then someone should at least be with him. Ann says that both of them will not be able to their all the time to drive and chaperone him. Kristen says that yes, he is physically able to drive but not mentally. Ann is suggesting life alert!
 
Slacker says that when you take away a proud man’s freedom it makes them feel much older. He says that this is a tough situation because he says that one day he will have to make this situation with his dad.
 
Steve says that Ann might be against taking away his license because it will inconvenience her. He agrees with Slacker. It is a tough situation but you taking away his license will make him fast forward time by 10 years mentally and physically.
 
Whose side are you on?
 
I agree with Ann. Never take away a man’s freedom… but I can see where Kirsten is coming from.

I Could Never Give Up____

Yi!
 
Hopefully you don’t microwave popcorn, but chances are that you do because it is delicious and because Americans eat 52 quarts of popcorn per person per each year. Here are some health concerns, if you do love eating the buttery goodness.
          • The Bags Themselves – There’s a chemical called PFOA used on the inside of some microwave popcorn bags that prevents oil from soaking through the paper. This stuff has caused serious health problems in people who have been exposed to it.   
            • Trans Fats – Linked with heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, these bad fats are still found in many microwave popcorn varieties.
            • Sodium – This is a rough one because eating popcorn without salt just seems wrong. But if you’re trying to reduce your sodium intake to help control or prevent high blood pressure, microwave popcorn can be a salt bomb worth avoiding.

Slacker says that there is no way that his wife could not eat microwave popcorn (theater butter only!!) He says why eat popcorn without the sodium? He is addicted to sushi and wine and he says he would have a hard time living without both items.

Steve says that even if someone tells him that smoking is bad he still won’t stop. He is still waiting for that day until someone tells him. He says that he cannot live without Panda Express’ orange chicken even if it was contaminated!

Lil’ D says that he a Dew head. He is completely addicted to soda and energy drinks. He says that Mountain Dew is the worst problem for him because he just cannot deny the taste of the green goodness even though it gives him heartburn every time. Lil’ D says that Slacker is addicted to all Apple products!

What is something you cannot live without?

Smuggled

Yi!
 
Smuggling. Now that’s an interesting subject. A Pennsylvania man was caught with marijuana and prescription drugs in a Beavis and Butt-head lunch box. He was pulled over by police due a broken brake light. He had a suspended driver’s license and no identification. The 4o-year-old had over an ounce of pot and many plastic bags of prescription drugs. He is facing drug possession charges. A woman in Russia was smuggled across the border in her husband’s oversized baggage. One of the Polish policemen said, “We were very surprised to open the suitcase and see a woman climb out. She seemed perfectly well, despite being shut in the case, and not in need of any medical attention.” The couple was traveling to France from Moscow. Little did the couple know she could have crossed the border for free and now they‘re facing charges of breach border regulations. A man in China tried to smuggle 146 IPhones across the border into Shenzhen City. He strapped all of the IPhones onto his body but was stopped by customs. A customs officer said, "He walked at a really slow pace with a strangely stiffened back. The man explained it was the metal accessories he wore on his body, but we didn't believe him." He bought all of the phones in Hong Kong and was trying to make a profit in Shenzhen City. A true Pablo Picasso was stolen. This painting was worth millions and was stolen in France and was smuggled into the U.S. The painting was falsely labeled as an “art craft” and sold 37 dollars. The paintings location is unknown. No arrests have been made.
 
Slacker says that must be a huge lunch box. He says that he has smuggled Cuban cigars across the border and the way he does that is by putting them in tampon containers.
 
Steve says that the guy who smuggled the woman across France tried to put her in the overhead bin and that is how he got caught.
 
Have you ever smuggled something, or at least tried?
 
I look like a child. When I went to concerts I was the drug smuggler for all of my friends. Never did any of it, but security never suspected me.

OPP: Dated Single Dad

Yi!
 
Dating can be hard, especially when kids are involved. Melissa went a on a date with a single dad and he brought his daughter along with him on the date. She thought his daughter was a MAJOR brat. His daughter is 10-years- old and Melissa thought that she should be acting her age.  She says she is extremely rude to her. Melissa’s date covered for his daughter. She is getting the feeling that her date gives her everything she wants and that is why she acts extremely spoiled. She says that she likes him but she cannot get over his daughter. She wants to know if this is a deal breaker or if she should give him and his daughter another shot.
 
Slacker says that the single dad is smart because he brought his daughter with them on the first date because he said he is being upfront and is “ripping the band aid off.” He says that’s actually not smart, that is kind of weird. He thinks that she should just be done because they are already having problems and they have just started dating.
 
Steve says that it’s weird that he brought his daughter to dinner with them on the first date. He says that Melissa needs to have relations with him before she makes up her mind and then decide is the daughter is worth putting up with.
 
What do you think?
 
Family is extremely important, at least to me. If you cannot get along with the family, you should not be with that person.

Ripped My Heart Out

YI!
 
Heartbreak is a huge lesson in relationships. Some are worse than others and we want to talk about your worst heartbreak!  An 18-year-old Ohio man thought he had found the love of his life online. The girl he was madly in love with lived in China, 7,000 miles away. Not only did she live far from him, she also did not like him. He was on a mission to profess his love for her but only got rejected. Needless to say he got incredibly drunk and almost drowned in his own vomit. He was taken to the hospital and found that along with his heart, he lost his money as well.
 
Slacker says that he had his heart ripped out when his on again off again girlfriend was caught on the back of the motorcycle and the owner of the motorcycle was a guy that Slacker did not like. He says that is one of his most vivid memories. He confronted her as they pulled up to her house. They were together at that point in time, so he broke up with her again. He said both he and his ex -girlfriend ripped each other’s heart out. He says that in Steve’s case all these women date him knowing that he does not want a commitment but they all want to be the one to change his mind and ideals.
 
Steve says that he has never had his heart ripped out, but he has unintentionally ripped other people’s heart out. He says he is always up front with the women he dates that he does not want a heavy commitment or marriage.
 
Have you ever had your heart ripped out? How bad was it?

Turning 30: Advice to Know

Yi!
 
Some people say that life begins when you turn 30. Some think that turning 30 is the beginning of the end! Whatever you believe, here is some advice that everyone should know before turning 30.
  • Learn how to file your own taxes
  • Voting is important, so vote!
  • It’s ok to say “enough is enough” and quit, especially if it’s a job you absolutely hate.
  • Don’t ignore your family.
  • Wear sunscreen!
  • Don’t be too stingy, it’s ok to spend money sometimes!
  • It’s also important to SAVE your money!
  • Have friends that are different from you.
  • Know how to dress up for the job you want, not the job you have.
  • Test drive you dream vehicle, or even better, buy it!
  • Have at least one ‘4AM Friend’. A person you could call at 4AM if you’re feeling down and need some friend support.
 
Slacker would tell his pre-30-year-old self (and everyone else for that matter) to not sell himself short. He would also tell himself to go out and have fun while he’s young, because once he turned 30, it was harder to “recover” after a night of partying.
 
Steve says that he would go back and tell himself to not be too shy when it comes to dating! He would tell his younger self to go for it and not be worried about being rejected.
 
What advice do you have to add to this list?

Karma

Yi!
 
It’s something you either believe strongly in… or not at all. We are talking about karma!
 
A mugger in Florida recently shot himself and then asked a police officer for help. The man was armed when he stole a phone from his victim. As he was fleeing the scene he shot himself, ran to a strip club and jumped into a Mercedes that was unlocked. He eventually pulled over a flagged down an Orange County officer because his pain was too intense for him to bear. He was transported to a hospital and charged with armed robbery!
 
There is a video that was published online Sunday that proves karma is real! The video shows a man who pushed his cat off a chair and nudged it away with his foot. Moments after the man sat down on the chair with his guitar, the cat raced up the stairs, knocking a potted plant down onto his owners head. The man in the video wrote, “I love my cat but I think he doesn’t love my music.” After the plant fell, the man was seen clutching his head in pain; however he does stand up and appears to be alright.
 
Slacker hates people who can’t drive in bad weather. There are some people who drive too slowly, but others who speed past you and end up going in the ditch right in front of you. Slacker thinks this is one of the best forms of karma!
 
Steve agrees with Slacker, the guys who speed around you when the roads are bad deserve to go in the ditch or get in an accident!
 
Do you have any karma stories? We want to hear about them!

OPP: Gone for Anniversary

Yi!
 
Today’s OPP has a 10th anniversary coming up and she is not happy with what her husband has planned! Here is was Pam has to say,
 
Hi Slacker and Steve,
I have an issue with my husband. Our 10th wedding anniversary (and 25 years together) is coming up and on Valentine's Day he told me that a golf buddy wants to take him to Las Vegas to play golf on courses that are closed to the public. The date is on our anniversary and he would like to go with the guys on this trip. I feel a little hurt that he is going and not spending what I consider a BIG anniversary with me. Should I tell him not to go and make him miss this once again in a life time opportunity, or be understanding and let him go on this trip? I feel that his guy friend trips (which he takes all the time) are more important to him than me!! Could you ask your listeners to help me find an answer? Should I be upset or understanding? I feel unappreciated. Please help me.
                -Pam
 
Slacker thinks that since it is a ‘big’ anniversary, they should celebrate it on that day. He understands why the 10th anniversary is so important to Pam. But he also kind of agrees with Steve, they could just celebrate it on a different day.
 
Steve says that anniversaries are stupid and there is no point to them.  He says she should let him go to Vegas and have fun! They can celebrate it on a different day.
 
What do you think Pam should do?

Un-manly Man

Yi!
 
A recent survey revealed that 1 out of 5 men will steal their ladies’ beauty products! Let’s face it; almost every guy does at least one un-manly thing!  The survey found that 20% of men have admitted to stealing their wife’s or girlfriend’s beauty products. They also found that the aforementioned thefts cost women $300 a year! 90% of women are ok with their partner using their products, 25% of men use their partner’s products because they don’t know what they should buy for themselves, and 30% of men use their partner’s products because they don’t want to shop for the products themselves.
 
Other girly things that men have admitted to doing in secret are:
  1. Keeping diaries
  2. Getting giddy and happy when they get a text from their crush
  3. Taking bubble baths
  4. “Man-scaping”
  5. Wondering what it’s like to be a girl
  6. They like chick flicks and Disney movies too
  7. They love listening to Taylor Swift
  8. They love tiny fluffy animals and babies
  9. Dream about what marriage will be like
               
 
Slacker says that Steve pretends that he is manly, but in reality… he’s not as manly as he thinks! Slacker says that he really wishes he would have kept a journal but never really did. He also says that he gets facials once a month and has a lot of expensive “beauty” products.
 
Steve says he doesn’t need to pretend, he is a manly man! Steve admits that he does really like the movie Pitch Perfect!
 
We want to hear about the un-manly things your man does!

Show and Tell

Yi!
 
We all know that Show and Tell day at school was by far everyone’s favorite day! However, one school in New York had a Show and Tell day go wrong!
 
A New York man was arrested after his four-year-old son brought a bag of cocaine to school. A school nurse was helping the boy get ready when the drugs fell out of his hat.  Twelve grams were in the bag-- one gram is enough to kill a child if swallowed. Cops found more than twelve guns, more drugs and thousands of dollars in cash at the father’s home.
 
Officials were called when a 13-year-old boy from Ohio decided to bring moonshine to school. A science teacher who knew he was making illegal alcohol was reprimanded for not reporting that the boy brought it to class. The teacher dumped it into a drain but did not immediately report the situation. The superintendent told the daily news he thinks the teen wanted to show it to the teacher but didn’t mean any harm.
 
Slacker says he would always bring his Tonka Truck into school for show and tell day.
 
Steve said he doesn’t really remember anyone bringing in weird things in for show and tell.
 
Do you have and weird or crazy “Show and Tell” stories? We want to about hear them!

It's Not What It Looks Like

Yi!
 
Sometimes we find ourselves in a situation where the only thing you can say is, “It’s not what it looks like!”
 
A 16-year-old boy in Idaho caused part of the city to be shut down when he was mistaken for a sniper on top of a roof! Several law enforcement agencies responded to a report of a man with a rifle atop of a grocery store roof. When the officers got to the scene they cordoned off a multiple-block area and called in a SWAT team! The reality of the situation was that the boy was hunting pigeons with a scope-equipped pellet gun! The police eventually determined he wasn’t a threat and said he wouldn’t face charges.
 
Slacker says he remembers one time he answered the door and the TV was on a tennis channel. He said that the sounds that were coming from the TV made it seem like he was watching something other than tennis! He was also sick so he had Kleenex all over the place! Slacker said the guy heard the noises coming from the TV and looked at the Kleenex and must have thought he was doing something inappropriate!
 
Steve once went to a hardware store late at night and bought some interesting items including; tarp, duct tape, rope, etc. He said that the cashier must have thought he was planning a murder!

OPP: My Immature Man

Yi!          
 
Today's OPP wants her man to change all his friends. You may think she's asking too much, but when you hear the whole story you may understand why she wants him to change. Here is what Lauren had to say.
 
Yi Slacker and Steve,
My fiancé has the most immature group of friends ever. They are his buddies that got drunk and partied their way through college. The problem is that they still have that college mentality. They are overgrown college boys that wear khakis and button-ups to the office during the day and then go out to try to hook up with chicks at happy hour. They are the annoying guys that pester you to take more shots and stay out all night on a Wednesday. We are about to be a married couple and I think it's time for him to grow up. How do I get him to ditch his loser friends?
Thanks,
Lauren
 
Slacker doesn’t understand people who want to get black out drunk for fun. He also doesn’t think that Lauren should have to deal with his immature friends. He thinks Lauren should tell her fiancé that she wants to spend the rest of her life with him but she doesn’t want to have to deal with his immature friends for the rest of her life.
 
Steve says that if she says something, his friends may say that she is a “stick in the mud” but he also thinks that Lauren shouldn’t have to deal with his immature friends.
 
How do you think Lauren should handle this situation?

Side Effects

Yi!
 
Buying a house...Growing man boobs...driving across the state in the middle of the night. What do these things have in common? They are all the results of side effects!
 
A Florida woman is asking a court to let her back out of a home purchase, claiming that her diet pills altered her judgment and led to a decision she now regrets. The woman said she mistakenly bid on a foreclosed home that has more than $400,000 of debt, the same day she started a prescription of phentermine diet pills. She filed an objection in a county court to halt the sale, which Florida law permits within 10 days of a foreclosure auction. The homeowner's association where the home is located wants the sale to close so it can be paid, and said Phentermine is does not list “altered judgment” as a possible side effect. However, the Phentermine.com website lists “less common or rare symptoms” that include clumsiness, confusion and tiredness.
 
A 20-year-old autistic man won a $2.5 million lawsuit against a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson after his family and doctor say he developed 46DD breasts from taking an antipsychotic drug. He was first prescribed Risperdal, manufactured by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, in 2002 when he was 8. At the time, the drug wasn't FDA-approved for kids, and its label said risk was "low" for gynecomastia (the conditions in which men’s breasts grow larger). But when the FDA gave the green light in 2006 for the drug to be used as a schizophrenic aid for kids, new labels said the drug contained high levels of the hormone prolactin, which spurs breast growth. He had already started growing breasts by then -- and now, the only way he can get rid of them is through a mastectomy!
 
Experts are warning that the number one sleep aid, Ambien, could lead to disturbing behavior.... even murder. Ambien works by slowing down the brain-- and it is very effective. But it does have occasional side effects including sleep walking, abnormal thinking and strange behavior.This strange like behavior (according to some users) includes sleep driving, sleep eating or sleep shopping… people in these states or called "Ambien zombies." One man on the drug killed eight people.   His lawyer tried to blame Ambien but a jury didn't buy it, and he was convicted of murder.
 
We want to hear about crazy side-effects that you have suffered through!

Bad Bosses

Yi!
 
We all have had at least one bad boss, but some can be way worse than others! Lingerie Bowl player is suing her boss after he made her do some explicit acts. Her boss would force her to be topless around his friends and even snorted cocaine off of her mommy parts. She says he would expose her in front men and women to impress them. She says he did not stop even after she became pregnant. She did all of this because she feared she would lose her 90,000 dollar a year salary. She is suing him for 13 million dollars for unfair dismissal. He is counter suing her due to the woman stealing his credit card and spending over 1,200 dollars at the Apple Store. A Long Island doctor mocked his employee at the Neurological Surgery Center for having cancer and then fired her. When she needed time off of for chemotherapy he said, “When is enough, enough?” A few weeks later he fired her; his reasoning, “reorganization.” She has filed a law suit against him.
 
Slacker says that he was a terrible boss! When he was a boss he followed an employer who had previous called out, all the way to the mountains to prove he was not sick and really wanted to go skiing!
 
Steve says that he has been lucky and never had a bad boss! He says that Slacker is a good boss because even though he was stalking, he was diligent!

Cursed

Yi!
 
Carrie Fisher is completely in belief that the new Star Wars movie is cursed due to all of the strange occurrences that are happening with the entire staff. Harrison Ford had just recently crashed his plane on a golf course and Carrie Fisher got into a car accident on a rainy day in L.A. This is what she has to say, “Things happen in threes. I'm about to call (co-star) Mark Hamill to make sure he's Ok. I have a horrid feeling there's a curse going on here... What is funny is that last Sunday it was raining hard in L.A. I was driving to the art store and I got into an accident. It wasn't that serious and I wasn't hurt but it's the first car accident I've ever had. I drove home and that's when the wheel came off my BMW. My assistant told me I could have died if the wheel had come off when I was on the freeway. Then I was watching the news and saw Harrison had his crash. I'm a bit worried it's the curse of Star Wars.” Here at the Alice Studios we believe we have a cursed candy bowl. This candy bowl has circulated throughout the departments and each desk it lands on that individual gets fired. We choose to stay far away from that thing! There are many items that are known to be cursed like The Basano Vase. This vase originated in the 1500s in Ital but only started trouble after it was dug up in 1988. The vase came with a note inside that stated, “Beware… This vase brings death.” Whoever has come into possession of the vase has passed away within months of having it. Rumor has it that The Basano Vase has been buried once more. The Chair of Death now resides in a museum in England after it has killed numerous people. The curse it said to be responsible by Thomas Busby was a drunk that murdered his father-in-law in 1702. For his crime he was hung in chains until he died. This “death chair” was the chair that overlooked his execution site. Everyone who has sat in it after Thomas dies has died as well. The cleaning lady, two Royal Air Force pilots, and a roofer all died rather quickly to sitting in the chair. Moral of the story, be careful where you sit!
 
Slacker says that the candy dish is so cursed and it does not depend on the type of candy in the dish. He says no matter how long you have been with the company or how great of an employee you have been, if that candy dish lands on your desk, you are outta here!
 
Steve says he is semi convinced that the candy dish is cursed. He thinks that people who believe in curses are simple minded or gullible.
 
Whether it is a person, place, or object what are your cursed stories?

Spring Break

Yi!
 
It’s that time of the year again. The weather is getting warm and the snow is melting! It’s time for Spring Break! Myrtle Beach moves up on the list of “Trashiest Places to Spring Break”. Myrtle Beach landed at the number 3 spot for 2015 which is up from number 5 last year. #1 spot went to Panama City Beach and Las Vegas lands at the #2 spot. To be clear “trashy” meaning that a lot of Spring Breakers are going there for a cheap place to have fun, not trashy in the sense of garbage! The list is not supposed to be negative. According to the website, “Trashy is the embodiment of everything Spring Break stand for: cheap, excessive, loud and ‘turnt’.” The list started four years ago and Myrtle Beach has been in the top five since.
 
In other news, Spring Break didn’t go as planned for Mississippi State QB Dak Prescott. While vacationing in Panama City, Prescott and two other players were involved in a fight while attending a concert. Prescott suffered facial cuts after being hit with a bottle. He did not need to go to the hospital and does not want to press charges. There is a video going around on social media of the altercation and it appears to show Prescott on the ground getting kicked in the head.
 
Slacker remembers when he went on Spring Break to Orlando…for his schools jazz band. He said it got pretty crazy when they spiked their fruit punch (with ginger ale). He was hoping it would be like the movies where people would sneak out, but that never happened and he was disappointed.
 
Steve said he never really went to any fun Spring Break spots. He didn’t understand why he had to travel to some beach just to get drunk with his friends!

Shouldn't Be Alive

Yi!
 
Police were called when a local fisherman noticed and overturned car in an icy river in Utah. They were shocked when they found an 18-month-old girl dangling in the car seat inside, unconscious but alive. A firefighter jumped into the river and cut the car-seat straps, freeing the baby who was wearing only a flannel onesie and no hat or gloves. Officers then formed a line in the river and handed the cold child from one person to the next until she was on the shoreline and in emergency workers' arms. The baby was taken to a local hospital and made a full recovery, though authorities still don’t know exactly how she survived hanging upside-down for almost 14 hours in frigid temperatures with no food or water.
 
A 7-year-old is lucky to be alive after being lost at Great Sand Dunes. After an overnight search for the missing boy, a Colorado State Trooper found him walking toward the highway near the entrance of Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve. He was hiking on the dunes with his family when he became separated from the group. Although he did have a jacket, he was barefoot when last spotted by his family as he descended the dunes. With temperatures dropping into the 20s and steady, cold winds contributing to even colder wind chill factor, the search continued all night. Once found, the boy was transported by ambulance to a local hospital and was release a few hours later.
 
Slacker says he was once mugged at a gas station when he was younger. When he tried to snatch back his wallet and the mugger “pistol-whipped” him and ran away.

OPP: Boyfriend Living With another Girl

Yi!
 
Nicole’s boyfriend is about to move in with one of this best friends. The only problem is…his best friend is a girl! Nicole is worried that something might happen between the two of them if they live together.  She is totally fine with them being friends, but thinks that living together might be going too far. Nicole is worried because it would be so easy for them to get together if they are living in the same house, plus they have some history. They have been friends since they were young and even kissed in the 8th grade, but never dated. They also were really close in college and Nicole thinks the only reason they didn’t date is because they were both dating other people at the time. The best friend is also very attractive and Nicole just doesn’t feel comfortable with the situation.
 
Slacker doesn’t think that they are trying to get together and thinks the only reason they are moving in together is because it will be an easy/smart decision. He thinks that a kiss in 8th grade doesn’t really mean anything either.
 
Steve thinks that when a man and woman are friends, one of them wants to something more out of the relationship. He doesn’t think that people of the opposite sex can be “just friends”.
 
How do you think Nicole should handle this situation?

Hotel Horrors

Yi!
 
The police were called in Stockholm last week when a “stressed out” badger refused to let staff and guests enter or exit a luxury hotel. After 40 minutes of nobody being able to get in or out of the hotel, the staff decided to call the police to handle this angry badger. According to the Stockholm police report, the badger ended up leaving the premises on its own. The police report also said that the badger seemed “crazy” or “stressed out”.
 
A woman is seeking compensation after a bed bug incident at a hotel. On a recent overnight stay, a woman reported, “At about 5 a.m., I felt a stinging sensation on my arm. So, I jumped out of bed and turned on the light and when I turned on the lights, I saw these bugs scattering across my sheets and pillow.” She then took out her smart phone and began snapping pictures of the remaining bugs and even took a video of one crawling over her sheets. A few days later she had to check into the hospital with alarming welts covering her arm, face, and neck! The hotel’s co-owner refused to refund her money from the stay.
 
Slacker says he uses the drinking glasses that are in hotel rooms and was horrified when he learned that the hotel maids never really wash the cups out besides just rinsing them with water and putting a new paper covers on them.
 
Steve says that he has been to a hotel where there was a woman murdered just one week before he was there! Slacker told him that he should have asked for the room that the woman was murdered in because it was probably the cleanest room in the place!

Bug Related Incident

Yi!
 
What could be worse than being stuck on a bus with a bunch of tourists? How about being stuck on a bus with tourists AND being attacked by bees!
 
Twenty two tourists had to seek medical attention after being stung by bees during a tour of Vietnam. While on a bathroom break, one man peed on a beehive and the bees weren’t happy! The bees attacked and several of the men were stung on their privates. OUCH!
 
An Australian man recently found a large spider hiding in his toilet! The frighteningly large spider was filmed fighting for its life and was nothing short of every arachnophobe’s worst nightmare! The video made its way to the Facebook wall of Barry Morrissey, according to the Daily Mail. In the clip, the spider appears from under the lip of the toilet bowl, swept away by flowing water almost as soon as the cameraman flushes it. The spider seems to be just seconds from drowning, though as the water continues to batter it, the supper-strong spider fights desperately. Clinging to the bowl for its life, the spider attempts to climb the side of the toilet. As the water flows, the spider floats, curled up in a ball and appearing to have lost its battle. After just a moment, however, the arachnid pops back to life, attempting once more to save itself. Pummeled by falling water, the spider is forced under the surface before finding its footing, succeeding in pulling itself to relative safety. The spider eventually finds its way back under the lip of the toilet bowl, exhausted and hiding.
 
Slacker says he’s not really afraid of any bugs…besides the jumping spiders in Brazil that he has experienced while visiting his extended family. He recalls staying in a hotel room and having a spider crawl through a crack in the wall and there was no way he would be able to sleep that night!
 
When Slacker brought up the fact that people are starting to eat bugs because of the high protein, Steve says they are crazy and that they should just eat a steak!

OPP: Tell BFF Why She’s Single

Yi!
 
It’s important to be honest with your friends… but what if your honesty ends up really hurting their feelings? Today’s OPP is in a tough situation. She may have to be brutally honest with her best friend but she’s not sure if she should or even could do it! Here is what Veronica wrote to us:
 
Yi! My friend is perpetually single and she spends all of her time complaining about it. She asks me every few weeks what could be preventing her from finding love… Should I tell her that it is her appearance? She is overweight, colors her hair a different bright color every month and has piercings all over her face.  There aren’t too many people looking for that specific thing, right?  Should I set her straight or let her continue on this path?
-Veronica
 
Slacker thinks that Veronicas friend probably knows why she isn’t getting any dates but wants Veronica to tell her what she already knows.
 
Steve wonders if it might be a desperation issue. He thinks that maybe she is coloring her hair and getting piercing’s because she wants attention.
 
What do you think Veronica should do?

Lessons Learned

Yi!
 
A 7-year old was put in handcuffs and left to sit in a jail cell for an hour! This might make you angry at first, but just wait until you hear what happened. It might change your attitude about the situation!
One woman remembered stealing a candy bar from a local grocery store when she was 7 years old. When her father found out what she did, he made her go back to the store to confess. What she didn’t know was that her dad arranged for the small town’s police chief to show up, handcuff her and take her to the police station where she had to sit in a holding cell for an hour. This may seem like a harsh way to learn a lesson, but the woman said that she never stole anything again!
 
Slacker says that this wouldn’t have worked on him. He recalls one of his friends parents caught them smoking when they were younger and the parent made his friend smoke the whole pack of cigarettes. He said that didn’t teach the kid not to smoke, it actually taught him how TO smoke! So their parenting did the exact opposite of what they wanted!
 
Steve says he normally “learns the lesson” while he is doing the thing he isn’t supposed to be doing. His mom would try to teach him that what he did was wrong and he would say that he knew it was wrong while he was doing it, but decided that he would do it anyway!
 
What did your parents do to teach you a lesson you wouldn’t forget?

OPP: Strip Club Server

YI!
 
Tiffany has been out of a job for six months. She got a job offer from a friend of a friend and it’s not exactly the most welcomed job in society or to her fiancé. She got offered a job to work at a local strip club as a cocktail waitress. Her fiancé is completely against it. He thinks that it will lead to her doing drugs and becoming a stripper. She says that she still has morals and she wouldn’t lose them by cocktail waitressing. They both really need the money so Tiffany is considering lying to her fiancé and telling him she got a different waitressing job. She needs advice on whether or not to take the job.
 
Slacker says that he dated a cocktail waitress at a strip club and he said it was terrible because she was heavily into drugs and she did not do drugs before the cocktailing. He says that if she wants to get married to this guy, Tiffany needs to definitely tell him. Slacker says that people who work in a strip club make a lot of money and it is hard to say no and keep with your morals. Slacker thinks that the strip club is a trap for all and any employees.
 
Steve says she should lie but not for very long. He thinks she should rack up some good money and then leave the strip club. Steve says that once she starts bringing in the money her fiancé will respect her.  
 
Should Tiffany take the job and lie to her fiancé or not take the job at all?
 
I think she should find a new job because I agree with her fiancé. I know many strippers that were former cocktail waitresses. I heavily believe it is a gateway job.

Compliments

YI!

You have nice gums! That’s just an awkward thing to say! We have found a list of the most awkward compliments! Have you ever received any of these? Lets’ hope not!
- I have birthmarks all over my arms and when I'm cold they get bright red. I was at a Christmas party wearing a short sleeve shirt and a lady came over to me and asked what happened to my arms. I replied they were just birthmarks and she responded "Oh.. well they're very festive."
- "You have a good tooth to gum ratio."
- "If I was as pretty as you, I would have 8 boyfriends and have been pregnant 3 times."
- "The skin under your chin is the softest under-chin skin I'VE EVER FELT"
- When I was in grad school, an instructor in my department saw me after I'd gotten a haircut and said, "I love your new haircut! You look TEN THOUSAND times better! I barely recognized you! I didn't know you could be so attractive!"
- One of my classmates said this gem to me: "You look like you could be one of Ted Bundy's victims....especially with your long hair, parted in the middle. All the girls he killed were really pretty." 
- Guy at bar tells me I'm an interesting person, then says something like, "You must have been a really ugly kid, because usually pretty people don't have to develop a personality." Ooof.
- A classmate once told me I have the most perfectly shaped skull she'd ever seen and that I would "look really great bald"...um thanks?
- "Hey, you look so beautiful, the way you eat those nuggets." I had one in my mouth at the time. It then became an inside joke.
- "I just want to make a blanket out of your hair or something" -Drunk guy who decided it was okay to pet my hair in between sets at a concert. Ha.
- After seeing my feet in flip-flops a girl told me she really liked my right foot but didn't care for my left.
- "You have such great birthing hips! You'll be a great mother to all those children you're going to have some day!" ~Random lady at Target
- "You're a vixen. So sexy. You remind me of my daughter."
- My friends wedding photographer told the bride-to-be she would be a great plus size model.
- "People could tell how pretty you are if you just chose uglier friends."
- "You'd be gorgeous if you lost a bit of weight" *sigh
 
Slacker says that one time he and his wife were at a concert and her eyes were a little bloodshot and his wife has really blue eyes. A woman came up to her and said, “Your eyes are so patriotic!” He says that his most awkward compliment was when a man in an elevator complimented him on the shape of his head.
 
Steve says that his most awkward compliment is when as ex-girlfriend said, “You have a really confident walk.”
 
Whether it was awkward or backhanded, what is the strangest compliment you have received?

Crazy Craigslist

Yi!
 
Craigslist is an awesome place to find goods at a great price but now Craigslist is becoming responsible for an STD. Yes, that’s right an STD! People are meeting each other on Craigslist to have relations and these personal ads are increasing the risk of contracting HIV. It’s called the “Craigslist Effect” and it has resulted in 6,000 more individuals with HIV cases a year. Craigslist can be dangerous in more ways than one. There is a new trend to carry out the exchange of Craigslist deals at a police station to prevent a sticky situation or scam. Police stations are even volunteering and encouraging Craigslist buyers to use them as a “safe haven.” Now in some states you can request an officer to facilitate a Craigslist exchange. A man in Arizona tried to stay far away from having the police facilitate his Craigslist exchange but his try ended in failure. He posted an ad wanting to have relations with a woman and her dog at the same time. An undercover female officer began exchanging texts and emails with him. Little did he know it was a sting operation with the Tempe police. They decided on a meeting place at a local hotel and the officer even brought a dog. The man admitted he wanted to have relations with both of them and by one touch of the dog he was arrested immediately.
 
Slacker says he buys a lot of things from Craigslist and says he loves it even though it is sketchy. He wants Steve to buy something on Craigslist. He says he is so scared of Craigslist people that when he is selling things he goes four houses down; make a quick transaction and leave.  
 
Steve says he is afraid of Craigslist. He says he only buys things from stores. He thinks that Craigslist is dumb!

What is your crazy Craigslist story?
