Slacker & Steve's Blog



Adult Hide & Seek


Yi!

35% of Americans are having to deal with debt collectors right now. The average American owes $5,178 to somebody who is coming after them. How do you hide from debt collectors? How do you hide from that annoying neighbor? An ex? Do you owe a friend some money? How do you play adult hide and seek?

Slacker plays adult hide & seek on a daily basis! He will get home, see his neighbors, wave as he gets into the garage and closes the door behind him right away. A few minutes later, "ding dong!" and Slacker will not answer the door. He does say though that having kids kind of ruins the hide and seek plan. Someone Slacker knows hid from a debt collector for over a year, that's talent!

Steve wouldn't answer his door for his neighbors then had to leave a few minutes later, he's that guy! He told the story of when he had to hide from a girl who he was no longer seeing. The girl was ringing his door bell and when that didn't work she then started banging on the window. After having to hide in his own house, the girl finally left.

Producer Lil D says he has never played adult hide and seek... Lies!

How do you play adult hide and seek?

What Your Parents Don't Know


Yi!

No matter how old you get, you have a secret that would kill you if your parents ever found out. Maybe you cheated to get into college. Maybe you slept with one of their friends. Maybe lied and blamed your dog for something it didn't do and they put it down...or maybe that one is just Steve. 'Fifty Shades of Grey' star Dakota Johnson does not want her parents to see the movie. She gets whipped and slapped and sexed up in the movie. For these reasons, she doesn't want her parents to see.

Slacker says he keeps more from his parents now than he did when he was younger. Talking about '50 Shades of Grey,' Slacker says he has heard people say the book is so great but also very bad. Something his parents do know about him is that he is no longer a strict Catholic, like when he was growing up. He believes his parents would not be thrilled with his wife's religious beliefs at this moment. Slacker thinks after this talk, he could use a shower!

Steve asks Slacker if he would want to go see his own daughter in '50 Shades of Grey.'

Do you have a secret that would kill you if your parents found out?

OPP: One-Night Stand

Yi! Today's OPP is from Candy:

Yi Slacker & Steve! I just got out of a relationship and I'm hitting the dating scene again. I want to go out and have fun and put my past behind me. Basically, I want to go have a few one night stands. I think it'll be a good way to get my confidence back. My problem is that I've never really had one and I have no idea what to do. What kind of clothes do I wear? Do I act slutty or do I pretend to be innocent. What do I say to the guy in the morning? What kind of things should I look out for? I'm too embarrassed to ask any of my friends for tips. Can you guys help me? - Candy

Slacker says most women end up having a connection with a man even if you didn't want to at the beginning of the night. If you can look at a guy and strictly think about how you would never take him home to your parents, you would never make him a father, then it opens up the pool of guys you have to choose from for a one-night stand. One of Slackers tips is if you really want it to just be a one-night stand, don't do it at your house! Slacker says leave as soon as you wake up.

Steve said there are some women who simply just get theirs. They don't tell everyone about it, and that's perfectly okay. He says Candy needs to be safe and feel safe because it can get sketchy sometimes. He says the longer you go without relations, the easier it is to have a one-night stand.

Have you ever had a one-night stand? What are your tips and advice?

Joy Ride

Yi!

A 3-year-old Oregon boy took his parent's jeep out for a spin and ended his trip by crashing into the neighbor's home. Afterwards, the boy ran home so he could watch cartoons. Before he took off with the vehicle, a cop saw the boy sitting in the jeep and warned his father. A short time later the boy knocked the vehicle into drive and it rolled out of the driveway. The boy's father was charged with failure to supervise a child.

Slacker says he has never been on a joy ride.. What!? He talks about other underage children joy riding like the 9-year-old boy and brother took their parent's car to get to grandma's going 70mph. 12-year-old Florida girl took mom's car, but was pulled over by cops for going 52mph in a 35. Slacker says that if you want your joy ride to last, follow the rules! One of Slacker's brothers took his other brother's motorcycle, made it down the street, and came home with a wrecked bike and road rash. He doesn't know if he wants his own kids to live a little or follow the rules. He says as long as his truck doesn't get touched, go for it!

Steve said his first joy ride was at 8-years-old. He told a story from when he was younger and a kid from school stole the school bus for a joy ride.. Yikes!

Have you ever taken a joy ride when you weren't supposed to?

I was so scared to steal my parents car myself so I gave the keys to my even younger cousin to let her drive us. We backed up directly into the neighbor's fence and I definitely got all the blame.

Anyone Listening Who

Yi!

Time for another 'Anyone Listening Who'!!! This week, Slacker thinks more of you have a Flipped Off Folly story. Steve thinks more of your moms have hooked up with your baby daddy. Lil D thinks more of you have been drunk in an inappropriate place.

Slacker says now he has confidence in Lil D's topic because everyone has done this and he might win this week. There is a story in the news where an 80 year old man got mad that someone flipped him off and he shot the tires off the car. He was at a water park when he saw a mom flip her kids off behind their back. It was hysterical.

Steve says when he lived in Detroit he knew a couple that had to move in to the girl's mom's house to save money because she was pregnant. The guy ended up hooking up with his baby mama's mom!

Lil D thinks a lot of people have been drunk in a weird place. He was seeing a girl and he got hammered and they ran into the girl's parents. So they ended up going back to her parents' house and while he was in a conversation with her parents he was on the verge of puking.

Whose side are you on?

Kids Say the Darnest Things

Yi!

Kids really do say the darnest things! Like the little boy who was banned from a donut shop for asking a woman if she was pregnant!

Slacker says at 4 years old you have to explain to the child who is pregnant and who is overweight. He believes that 4-year-olds cannot be rude. He wasn't trying to call this lady fat, he legit asked if there was a baby in her tummy. Slacker and his son watch a TV show about trucks and how they beep when the reverse. His son and he were at the store and a larger lady started backing out of an isle and his son made the beep…beep. Noise. Ouch!

Steve said the kid was so rude. He claims to be a perfectly mannered 4-year-old. His neighbor went up to him and said "We feel sorry for you because you are lonely." Steve lives alone and he had to explain to the girl that he prefers to live alone.

What embarrassing things did you child say in public?

I asked my mom why a guy in the grocery store has such a bog nose. Needless to say, he was a black man and wasn't thrilled.

Scammed

Yi!

Getting caught up in a scam is never fun, and unfortunately happens all over the world! Disney World and Orlando police are cracking down on a pizza scam. Someone slips a pizza coupon under your door at the hotel, but if you order a pizza you won't be getting one delivered. Your credit card number actually is sent to identity thieves!
In Rome, while some pickpockets make their living on not being noticed, others do it by getting aggressive and in your face -- then ripping you off while you're distracted. Rome is home to the infamous "fake baby" ruse, which sees a woman trip and throw a bundled doll into your arms, or just drop it on the ground, in an attempt to draw your attention away from pickpockets, often children, nicking your wallet or making away with your camera bag.
Even Egypt has scammers! The pyramids around Cairo are one of the world's best photo ops, and some tourists up the ante by posing on the back of a camel. Often, there are trainers standing by to coax the eight-foot-tall, 1,500-pound animals to lie down passively in preparation for riding. Once you've paid your $15 and mounted the beast, though, some touts will insist that you pay again to disembark and hold you hostage on the hump until you do.

Slacker says he would totally fall for the Disney World scam if he was hammered drunk. He feels like some people that fall for this stuff has to be an idiot. He thinks the throwing baby scam is ridiculous. If he ever saw a woman throwing a baby he would probably freak out. On paper it works, but he would not fall for it. In Vegas the cabbie will try to be in a rush. They will attempt to help you take your bags out of the trunk.

Steve says these are brilliant. They are so simple too. The fake baby scam rocks! Two people will dress like hotel staff and will go around and pretend they are concierge. So the person lets the two "workers" in and one distracts the person while the other steals stuff from the hotel room.

Lil D was almost scammed majorly! He was at a store and he went out to his car and he went to get in. A man approached him and his keys were in the ignition. The man got in between Lil D and the car. He had a dead phone and needed to plug it into his car to charge it and was pleading to let him charge his phone. The man was getting upset because Lil D said no to him and he was really trying to get into his car and steal it. At least he put the two and two together that he was going to get robbed.

Have you ever been scammed? How?

OPP: Boy Wants a Bridal Shower

Yi!

Alec is getting married to his fiancé very soon. However, she doesn't want to have a bridal shower. He thinks she should have a bridal shower because they don't have the essential things for their home at this very moment.

Slacker asks Alec why he cares about the bridal shower. He replies that they literally have nothing in their apartment and he wants to get free stuff from them for their apartment. If she's anti-shower then she will be forever. That means no baby shower when they have children. If they don't have stuff in their apartment then maybe they should be focusing on getting their lives together before getting married.

Steve says he is being selfish. She doesn't have say in his bachelor party so he shouldn't have in her bridal shower. Alec replied with the idea of doing a surprise shower for her and Steve said that might not be a good idea. He shouldn't ambush her. He sounds selfish but he's not. He just wants his fiancé to be happy.

How should he convince his fiancé to have a bridal shower? What advice do you have for Alec?

GMD: Move 25-Year-Old Daughter Back In

Yi!

Kara and Dominic's youngest kid is getting ready to head off to college and the will have no more kids in their house. But their 25-year-old daughter wants to move back in with them. Kara says absolutely not, and Dominic says they have to help her because it's their duty as parents to keep her safe.

Slacker said it sounds like Kara doesn't trust her daughter home alone. She replied she doesn't trust her daughter at home. Dominic said that's their baby girl and he isn't going to make her live on the street. Kara replied that their daughter is lazy and every job she gets, she quits. He asked Dominic when he will say no to his daughter. He didn't answer. Slacker says this is like being in a prison and getting an extra year to your sentence.

Steve said it sounds like Kara sounds like she is in shut down mode. She replied that she feels like her life is being taken away. He thought kids come first as parents. He said they chose this life to take care of their kids from day one to their last day when they had them. If you let their daughter move in now, the other ones will want to move back. Their job as a parent does not ever end.

Mean Girls

YI!

Being a woman in the workplace in a position of authority is getting harder – not because of stereotypes or sexual biases of male peers and subordinates, but because women are awful to each other! A recent Gallup poll found that Americans prefer that their bosses be male – even the majority of female employees prefer it that way. It turns out that women aren't just ruthless to each other in social situations – they turn on each other in the professional world too. According to an article in Forbes, "Female subordinates are often less respectful of, and deferential to, their female bosses than they are to their male bosses. They question more, push back, and expect a certain level of familiarity or camaraderie that they don't expect from the men. This speaks to the long tradition of women being notoriously hypercritical of one another." Researchers even found that women are much more likely to form negative opinions about other women, even friends, much more quickly and often than men do with other guys. Basically, women are mean to each other! Instead of looking at other women as members of the same team, they look at them as competitive threats. Guys don't do that. And for a woman in business, that can be a difficult tightrope to walk. You have to be tough for your male employees but you have to make your female employees feel unthreatened by you, and then you still have to get your job done. That's a lot of different hats to wear in one workday.

Slacker says that whenever they have had a female boss it seemed like they needed to prove something! He says that you have the authority and title why do you need to flex your muscles! Slacker says that when he was in high school the guys would help out each other no matter the social status and the women were always on the hunt to attack other women!

Steve says that when women have a higher position its possible they are so mean because they have had to take so much abuse on the way up and they know that the women around her are normally backstabbers. He says that when he was in school there was a beautiful girl who didn't have any money or anything materialistic, but the other women who had money and everything were always looking for ways to downgrade her because they weren't as pretty as she was.

What is the meanest thing another girl has done to you?

Shoplifting

YI!

If you're going to do something wrong, you might as well make a scene out of it! Two women are in the news for shoplifting in some of the strangest ways...one of them nearly naked and the other for using her child!

A female shoplifter fled topless yesterday from a Macy's in Arcadia, California. The woman placed items in her purse before scuffling with a loss prevention officer. During the fight, the woman's shirt and bra came off.
The police report says: "During the altercation, the suspect's shirt and bra came off. The woman then ran to her car topless and left behind her purse containing her driver's license.'' Cops are now looking for the woman.

A Massachusetts woman was caught stealing a vibrator, and trying to hide it in her baby's stroller. An employee noticed the woman stealing the sex toy and stopped her while she tried to leave the store. The woman acted like she didn't know what was going on but eventually handed the vibrator over. The woman was charged with shoplifting.

Slacker says was accused of shoplifting at a bookstore so he decided to take off his pants right there in the store! He doesn't understand how they didn't catch the naked woman, she should be pretty obvious! Slacker says he won't even eat a grape in the store for the fear of stealing.

Steve says that it isn't shoplifting if you haven't gotten caught! He says that Slacker was afraid of the law and called him a "Law Abider!" Steve doesn't understand why you wouldn't eat a grape in the store it's not stealing because they grow on trees! He also thinks that if you can get out of the store without the alarms going off its not stealing either.

Lil D says he has shoplifted in middle school. He just got back from a basketball trip early and went over to a convenience store to steal a Playboy. Lil D says that he grabbed one and put it under his jacket and then bought something so he wasn't suspicious. He said that they cashiers were talking about someone stealing and came towards him. Lil D says he started to freak out when the cashier passed him and grabbed a boy right behind him! He said he got the Playboy but it was the lingerie edition and wasn't a true Playboy.

What is your criminal story?

OPP: Cheated First Year

YI!

Today's OPP is from Marissa:

Marissa and her husband have been together for 10 years and married for 8. Recently she just found out that during the first year of their relationship he cheated on her! Should Marissa walk away? Or should she stay and forget about it?

Slacker says that he never broke his vows to her as bad as that sounds. He says that her husband shouldn't have told her, he should have lived with the guilt and shame till he goes to the grave! Slacker says that it was nine years ago and that long ago with him he was a completely different person. He is wondering if the husband was expecting,her to jump for joy he told the truth?

Steve says it good that it wasn't an emotional connection and some random hook up because it could have been worse. He says that the guy is a complete idiot for even telling her!

What advice do you have for Marissa?

I think that if he was going to tell her he should have told her right when it happened and not nine years later! Now years of trust and emotions are involved in the situation making everything so much more difficult. In complete honesty, she should try to make the relationship work, you have come this far why not continue.

Stupid Injury

YI!

We have all had our dumb moments, some worse than others. Recently a woman in Massachusetts was injured in one of the dumbest ways possible...she ran herself over with her own car!

A Waltham, Massachusetts woman recently ran herself over in a parking garage. Sergeant Joe Guigno tells The Boston Globe: "She was checking to see how far she was from the wall and somehow she ended up underneath the car. She was able to get out from under the car and back into the vehicle by the time emergency responders arrived.''

Slacker says how stupid can you be to hurt yourself with your car! He says that the real reason his back has been hurting lately is because he had to save his children from the lava in his house! Slacker said that his carpet was the lava during the "Lava Game" and he jumped from his couch to couch and ended up hitting the coffee table! He said that he hit the hard wood floor and heard the cracking of his back! Slacker says that his kids didn't even try to help him! He now says that he is debating on buying a rugby jersey for when he goes to the chiropractor to make up something a lot less dumb!

Steve wonders what the insurance claim on the incident was.

Lil D says that his brother had the dumbest story ever! He says that his brother couldn't find anyone to play football with and so he ended up playing by himself. Lil D continues to say that his brother was passing the ball to himself and crashed into the fence and broke his arm!
What is the most idiotic way you have injured yourself?

I went to cannonball into the river to be cool and make a big spash. That part I jumped into only ened up being a foot deep! I ended up breaking my toes on my right foot from smashing into the rocks.

Anyone Listening Who

Yi!

Another week means another 'Anyone Listening Who'! This week, Slacker thinks more of you have had your mother try to step in and fight a battle for you. Steve thinks more of you have had a gun pulled on you or pulled a gun on someone else. Lil D thinks more of you have fallen asleep behind the wheel and hit something.

Slacker is excited because he says he is on a winning streak although he only one round and that was last week. Slacker gives Lil D a hard time for his topic because he doesn't even have a real story. He was actually held up at gun point at a convenient store. A man was robbing it and he was at the wrong place at the wrong time. He thinks mothers are somewhat too protective and there's a story in the news where an employee was fired. His mom went in and tried to get her son's job back. When he was a manager at a CD store his employees had their moms call in all the time.

Steve thinks a lot of people have gotten a gun pulled on them or have pulled one on somebody. His nephew was at a house party but the dad came out and he went and grabbed a shot gun and cocked it. He used Slackers story for his in for his topic so Slacker made fun of him for that.

Lil D says a lot of people have fallen asleep and hit something. He almost did, but just missed it! He was falling asleep in a construction zone and he was two inches away from hitting concrete.

Who do you agree with?

I agree with Slacker because I had a mom message me on Facebook trying to fight me because her daughter was heartbroken that my now boyfriend broke up with her before dating me. So stupid, and so much lame drama. But it did happen. So I think Slacker might win this one!

Hero Pets

Yi!

They're cute, cuddly, and we love them. They're our pets and sometimes they can save lives! Nick Lamb from Indianapolis has been deaf since birth. He wanted to take a nap and took out his hearing aids so I can sleep comfortably. An electrical fire broke out in the garage and the house went up in flames! He was saved from a house fire by his pit bull Ace licking his face to wake him up! Smudge the cat saved his five-year-old owner from bullies!

Slacker says say what you want about pit bulls. But this one is awesome! He wants to know how old were the kids picking on the 5-year old? He says the cat wasn't even that coo, but he did do a god deed. He wants to hear reptile pet stories. His dog must have studied their ceiling fan. His fan would spin so fast that it would wiggle like crazy. He turned the fan on and it is going really fast when his dog Mojo was growling at the fan. He went to put Mojo in the backyard right as he was getting up the fan came barreling off onto his bed! Can you say great timing?

Steve says him and Slacker pokes a lot of fun at cats. He says cats are selfish and only look out for themselves and the fact that a cat saved his owner is only because he was saving himself first.

How did your pet save your life?

I was walking my dog when all of a sudden three loose pit bulls attacked my dog and almost attacked me! But being the amazing dog he was, he fought them off and I didn't get hurt at all! The pit bull's owner was taken to jail that night too.

Girl's Night Out

Yi!

Girls night out is supposed to be a night where all the girls get together and get a little rowdy. Okay, a lot rowdy. Women tend to spend more time getting ready for the night out than how much time they actually spend out. The top 20 products women use before they go out are:
1. Shampoo
2. Deodorant
3. Shower gel
4. Mascara
5. Conditioner
6. Perfume
7. Foundation
8. Eye shadow
9. Face moisturizer
10. Nail varnish
11. Lipstick
12. Body moisturizer
13. Blusher
14. Pencil eyeliner
15. Hair spray
16. Concealer
17. Cleanser
18. Lip gloss
19. Facial scrub
20. Body scrub

Slacker says guys never plan guy's night out…ever. There's a new story about making a girls night out happen. They spend three days in advance planning the event. He used to do a thing where they called it naughty mommy's night out. To get on the bus you could bring three of your girlfriends, but the person who won had to be a mom. They would bring male strippers on the bus. The first time they did this Slacker had a mic and introduced him. He took one step forward the girl in the front seat unbuttons his shirt. She and another woman both of them tore his shirt off. He may or may not have been in a relationship at the time. Women are nuts!

Steve says women are smart and are not going to call in with stories and will lie to their guys about their girl's night out. It is like an intelligent mom colony that can keep a secret.

What is your crazy girl's night out story?

I went to jail on a girl's night out. End of story.

OPP: Public Service Announcement

Yi!

Today's OPP is from Diane. Diane is tired of people having no shame. She spends hours in the gym building a body that can be seen in a bikini. She has a gripe with fat women wearing skimpy clothes and bikinis because it is unflattering. She says no one wants to see that and women that do this need to get in the gym.

Slacker asks Diane why she is so mean. She says she isn't mean and that she is a realist and telling the truth. It makes Slacker sick to his stomach that she is getting this air time. He has no respect for this woman. Her voice is disguised and he asked her if she is so confident, then why did she want voice disguiser? He asks if we can all agree that there is an obesity problem in America. He said people are more accepting of people who are overweight and look the other way.

Steve asks Diane if people with blonde hair have roots showing are they not allowed to have blonde hair? He thinks it will never end with her. Non-obese people are the minority now in America.

Do you agree or disagree with Diane?

GMD: Not Telling the Dad

Yi!

Brooke left her boyfriend because he was very abusive to her. But right after she broke up with him she found out she was pregnant with his baby. Brooke doesn't want to tell him he's going to be a dad because that means she has to deal with him for the rest of her life. Her sister Amanda says he deserves to know because he is the father.

Slacker asks Brooke if she can live every day with this child seeing the father in the child and she responded yes because this child is the only good thing in that relationship. She says she would rather have an abortion than to bring the child into the father's care and potentially get abused by him too. Slacker asks Brooke if she will run into him while she's pregnant.

Steve asked Amanda why she doesn't have her sister's back. She replied by saying that pregnancy is not meant for one person to go through alone. Raising a child is a team effort and he has a right to know he has a child. He said it was a good point, but asks Brooke if she wants child support from him. She replied that she doesn't want his money. He thinks that a lot of men can be d-bags in relationships but have potential to be a good father.

Who do you agree with?

You be the Judge: Split the Lottery Ticket

YI!

If an employee of yours came in and claimed he had a dream that you won the lottery, what would you do? Well a London man listened and won! But there was a catch.

A judge in England ruled that a restaurant owner must give half of his $1.7 million lottery jackpot to an employee who helped convince him to play by predicting the win. As a result, Fatih Ozcan stands to collect about $857,000. Turkish restaurant owner Hayati Kucukkoylu bought a EuroMllions ticket in January 2012 and won the jackpot. Kucukkoylu paid for the ticket and chose the winning numbers, but Ozcan insisted that half of the winnings were his because he went and physically purchased the ticket after having a premonition about Kucukkoylu's good fortune. "He dreamt that he was holding a large bundle of cash and standing in front of him was his boss," Judge Mark Gosnell explained in his ruling. "Mr. Ozcan is a strong believer in the power of dreams and interpreted this to mean that he and Mr. Kucukkoylu would win the lottery." The employee "pestered" his boss for three hours before he decided to purchase the winning EuroMllions ticket, the Telegraph reported. "I find that the effect of these conversations was that Mr. Kucukkoylu and Mr. Ozcan entered into a contract to jointly play the lottery on an equal basis," Gosnell said. "There should be a declaration that the prize money from this winning lottery ticket should be shared equally between Mr. Kucukkoylu and Mr. Ozcan."

Slacker says morally you have to give the guy some money! He says that if you rarely buy a lotto ticket and a guy convinces you to, he definitely gets something. Slacker says if he was in this situation he would give the guy something like 20%.

Steve doesn't think that half is fair, it's too much money! He says that if he was in this situation he would for sure kick back some money.

You be the judge; should he have to split the lottery ticket or keep it for himself?
I say give the guy some money, he did convince you. I would possibly give him enough to maybe pay for like six months rent or soemthing of the sort. In my opinion though half is way to much because he didn't pick the numbers!

Worst Summer Ever

YI!

Summer time is here and it's supposed to be a time of rest, relaxation, and good times...but it doesn't always turn out that way! Maybe you spent your entire vacation in the hospital. Maybe you slipped on the diving board and broke your leg. Maybe you singed off all your hair while lighting the grill!

Slacker talks about his summers as a child when his brothers convinced him his father was dead (he wasn't), beaches being closed on a road trip, and being held up at gun point. He says that he supposedly went to Disneyland but looking back he is pretty sure he went to Knots Berry Farm. Slacker continues to say that he and his family went to Mexico and ended up driving the wrong way on a one way street! He says that the cops pulled them over and they barely had enough to pay the fines and get out of there! Slacker says that another summer he got staph infection from scraping his foot in a pool, then got really sick and was given penicillin, found out he is allergic to it and then became even sicker!

Steve laughs hysterically at Slackers childhood summer stories.

What was your worst summer?

OPP: Daddy Diet

YI!

Today's OPP is from Elliott:

Elliott and his wife are expecting a child. During the pregnancy his wife thinks that he should do everything that she has to. No drinking, eating the same foods, going to bed at the same time, and so on. Elliott thinks this is crazy but he also wants to know what he should do.

Slacker is wondering what would be the hardest part about the whole thing. He can understand the no drinking thing because it's easy to drink when she is a constant DD. Slacker says that the way Elliott is looking at this is completely wrong, especially when he says "she wanted the baby" and things like that.

Steve says he understands where Elliott is coming from. He says that Elliott doesn't like it because he wasn't able to choose the lifestyle for himself. Steve feels like it's a sign of disrespect that Elliott isn't willing to even consider this for the next five months.

What advice do you have for Elliott?

I think Elliott should consider what his wife is asking. It's not forever and she is pregnant after all, the least he can do is do the best he can to go through it with her.

Proposal

YI!

Getting down on one knee and proposing is so old fashioned! Check out some of the ways people are proposing now. A guy recently proposed to his girlfriend while they were skydiving...and he dropped the ring!!! Idiot!

Forget romantic dinners and Jumbotrons at sporting events. One brave man decided to propose to his wife while skydiving recently ... and he dropped the ring in mid-air! According to the adventurous dude, that was all part of the prank, as his brother was waiting on the ground with the real ring. This daredevil couple has been together for a year and a half and have jumped out of a total of 224 planes between them. Hey, what gal doesn't want to be proposed to while careening toward the ground?!

And another one decided to do the opposite,

A man proposed to her girlfriend underwater off the coast of Florida. The couple, along with friends and family, went on a scuba diving trip over the weekend in Marathon, Florida. He used a laminated flip-book with a message for his girlfriend, a proposal banner and of course, the ring to propose to her underwater… and she said yes.

Slacker says that if Steve would ever get married he would do the coolest proposal because of the kind of guy he is. He says that it would have been pretty obvious if Steve went to the same spot and all of a student did a random scavenger hunt. Slacker says that he has done one big proposal and one small one. He says that the big one was done at a large party in front of everyone!

Steve says that with one girlfriend he planned on proposing to his girlfriend the same way his girlfriend's father proposed to her mother. He says that it was at a specific spot but it also consisted at a scavenger hunt!

What is your crazy proposal story?

Anyone Listening Who

Yi!

Another week...another 'Anyone Listening Who'! This week, Slacker thinks more of you have gotten in trouble because of a text you sent. Steve thinks more of you are not a medical professional but have delivered a baby. Lil D thinks more of you are willing to admit you're overpaid for your job.

Slacker hasn't won a single segment of Anyone Listening Who. He makes fun of Lil D for picking his topic because no one is going to call and admit they're overpaid. Slacker thinks Steve's topic is really good, and he might win! He says more people are going to call for his own topic because so many people have accidentally sent a text to the wrong person.

Steve thinks Lil D's topic is really good. He mentions the Go Pro video below about how a man had to deliver his baby in front of the hospital. He thinks Slacker's topic might win because every single person on the face of the planet has gotten in trouble via text.

Lil' D says people are going to call in and say they faked their college degree and now they are getting paid a lot through their job.

Who do you agree with?

Things Your Travel With

YI!
Steve brings his own toilet paper, paper towels, and soap when he travels. Their friend brings his own coffee machine because he has to have his coffee!

Slacker says Steve is a weirdo! He doesn't even drink the hotel coffee because it's gross. They both made fun of their friend because he can find a coffee shop anywhere. He recalls that Steve brought a ton of toilet paper into his carryon bag. He gives Steve crap for bringing his own soap because the hotel's works perfectly fine! He claims Steve uses way too much soap, and toilet paper.

Steve says he is not weird! Steve doesn't drink coffee at all. He says it was not a ton, it was four rolls! He has to bring soap because the bars of soap at hotels are tiny. He has been justified.

What random things do you take with you when you travel?

This One Time When I Went Psycho

YI!

A Florida man set his ex-girlfriend's house on fire. A woman cut her husband's face for peeing on the floor. A guy shot his girlfriend in the foot during an argument about another girl. What do these have in common? These people are all psychotic! Maybe it was at work...maybe it was in line at a movie...maybe it was at church! Sometimes things get a little crazy and you just have to lose your mind!

Slacker has never really had a public mental breakdown. He thinks he is a composed individual.

Steve has smashed someone car. He also got on a ladder in a computer store because no one was helping him. The moral of the story is that the computer was only available in that store and he had to show his face there again.

At what moment did you have a psychotic break?

OPP: Done Being a Bridesmaid


Yi! Our OPP is from Jessica:

Yi! My friends are starting to get married at an alarming rate. Seriously, my single friends seem to be falling like Dominos. And because of this, I've been asked to be a bridesmaid in four weddings already this year! I really don't have the money or the time to continue at this rate so I'm thinking of sending out a mass email to all my former sorority sisters, cousins, and coworkers telling them that I love them dearly, but if they ask me to be in their wedding party, I will flat out say no. Is that too harsh or do I have the right to put a stop to this bridesmaid BS before it gets any worse?
Jessica

Slacker says even if she doesn't want to be a bridesmaid then she has to still buy a present for the new couple and all the bachelorette stuff. Slacker asked Jessica if she received an email like the one she plans to send out how she would react. She says she would totally understand. He says she is a good bridesmaid, and now all her friends want her in their wedding. He says he definitely wouldn't send a mass email to tell her friends that she doesn't want to be in their weddings. His ex-wife had a summer where she was in a couple weddings and she had to get the matching jewelry, shoes, etc. It is a pain!

Steve thinks she is jealous of her friends getting married. She denied being jealous. He thinks Jessica is too friendly and has set a standard that she is a good bridesmaid.

What advice can you give Jessica?

GMD: Who's the New Girl?

Alan and Karina are married and went to lunch. They ran into Alan's co-worker and the co-worker said, "Who's the new girl?" Alan obviously replied that Karina is his wife and they went about their day. Karina asked Alan what his co-worker was talking about and Alan claims he is always trying to get Alan into trouble at work, and now with his own wife. Karina thinks something is going on.

Slacker says Alan has a reason to lie. If he is cheating then it makes sense he is saying his coworker is joking. The question is if she believes her husband. He hasn't done anything wrong before and he is sad his wife doesn't trust him.

Steve says we have to track down this co-worker. He is causing all these problems. But he wonders why would some random dude that Alan works with start trouble for no reason?

Who do you believe?

I believe Alan. I know scummy annoying people like his co-worker and they cause trouble in relationships because
they are sad about their sorry lives they don't have.

Serial Killer House

YI!

You never know what you're going to find when you move into a new home or buy a car! Recently a woman in Missouri found out the home she was renting was used as a torture chamber by a serial killer and the landlord was the killer's mother!

Slacker says he was close to buying a car from Craigslist; everything about this car was great! He says he went up there to make sure everything was ok with the car, met the lady and she seemed a little off. Slacker decided to ask her why she is selling the car for so cheap and she proceeded to tell him that her husband committed suicide in it! He asks Steve if there was a screaming deal on a car but found out 3 people in the vehical died, would he still buy it?

Steve says that selling the house and taking the financial burden wouldn't be worth it. He says there are no ghosts, spirit of killers or anything of the sort! Steve says that Slacker should have bought the car because it was such a great deal! He says that he would totally buy the car if it was that good of a deal and it wouldn't matter what happened in the past.

Would you move out of the house? Have you ever found out something crazy happened in a home you were living in?

Lie to My Guy

YI!

According to a new survey from the National Endowment for Financial Education, in one out of every three couples, one spouse admits to lying to his or her partner about money. And, 76 percent of those surveyed said lying about money has hurt their relationships.

5 Lies women always tell men

Lie #1: "Oh! It's fine. I'm OK"
Guards on guys! You must know that she's not fine at all and nothing is OK. And sooner or later you will have to bear the brunt of her pent up emotions that she has somehow managed to hold back until now. You'll find her taking this emotional defense on occasions when you may have forgotten her birthday, taken her for granted or have done anything that hurts her.

Lie # 2: "I love you for what you are"
...and I don't want you to change. Well, may God be your saviour if you believe her for this. No wonders, if sheer pampering or impressing you might strictly be on her mind when she's saying this. "I just loved my wife whenever she averred this phrase. But gradually the knick-picking started and reality dawned upon me. At times it was my eating choice that bugged her, while at others it was my dressing style that she wanted to improve. Yet she continued to tell the blatant lie that she loved me for what I was," complained Madhukar Suhas, a Mumbai-based advertising professional.

Lie # 3: You stare, I don't care!
Either you are too lucky to have the coolest woman by your side, or you are getting an inflated ego without any reason if you believe her on this. No matter how hard she tries to look cool and composed, but the fact remains that no woman loves it when her man ogles at another woman. "After all, who wants to feel like second best? And the 'I don't care attitude' is usually to hide the vulnerability and a pretence. Most women hate their man staring at another woman," confesses Radhika Khattar.

Lie # 4: Your friends are cool!
This might not be a lie always, but many a times your friends are nothing but a 'passion spoiler' for your girl, especially when they pop up during private moments. "When we started dating, on many occasions we went out with my friends. And every time I used to ask her, 'I hope you are enjoying?' she answered, 'They're cool!' The real shock came when one day I was planning another group date and she gave me a good piece of her mind. It's then that I realised that she didn't love them as much I thought she did. But she could have initially told me," says a 20-year-old college student.

Lie # 5: Tell me, trust me I won't get angry
This one is tricky, leaving you with a ditch on one side and a bigger ditch on the other. This lie is usually thrown at you when she wants an honest opinion and knows what it can be, but still wants to hear it. Beware guys! Irrespective of what you say, she is going to get furious for sure. This usually happens in questions related to her looks, the food that she cooks, that tangy orange shirt she brought for you etc.

Slacker says not to ask him because his life is an open book. He says that what he really lies about is when he buys a new shirt from Macy's. Slacker claims that he drives to a gas station after he buys it, throws away the tags, and then after he gets home hides it in the hamper until he dry cleans it! He says that his wife wouldn't care but he just feels guilty for doing it!

Steve says it's kind of weird of Slacker to hide the fact that he bought a new shirt. He says that a lot of married couples do things like Slacker and hide the little things.

What is the biggest lie you've told your spouse?

I personally would lie about how much money I truly have in my bank account. I just don't feel comfortable letting my girlfriend know that!

OPP: Defend the Family or Move?

YI!

Today's OPP is from Aiden:

Last week, we did Olivia's OPP about confronting her neighbor because of his 4th of July party. She did confront him and now it's her husband's (Aiden) turn for an OPP. The neighbor wants to fight him all the time and he needs help figuring out how to handle it.

Slacker says that standing up for your family doesn't always mean fighting the other guy. He thinks that he should try and call the neighbors bluff. Slacker says that when the going gets tough you shouldn't pick up and move, what kind of example does that set for the kids!

Steve says this is classic scenario of a woman shooting her mouth off and a man having to back up her words. He says that Aiden should talk to Olivia and make sure she doesn't involve the cops anymore.

What advice do you have for Aiden?

Found In Food

YI!

It's happened to us all...you're starving so you order some food. When it comes out, you take your first big bite to discover a hair, or a fingernail, or a band-aid. Like this guy from Miami!

A Miami man says he found a Band-Aid in his order of Mexican Chop Chop (chopped grilled chicken over yellow rice). When he went to spread curry sauce over his plate, he noticed something light brown floating in the green sauce; assuming it was a chicken bone, he began to dig it out with his finger. He found a used Band-Aid. He went back to the store, where he says the manager offered a refund but also pleaded with him not to alarm other customers. He then called the company's corporate office; a corporate Chicken Kitchen representative confirmed the company had offered a refund and a free meal. "We did what we could to remedy the situation," she said. The customer says he could easily get it by returning to the store or by check, and then she questioned whether he was actually interested in finding a resolution. She argued, "So it really doesn't matter what I say or what my company offers. He just wants to make Chicken Kitchen look bad." Yes, he does. He says he'll never eat at the restaurant again. "It's so nasty -- I just don't want anybody to eat there," he says. "I want people to understand the risk."

Or like this man from New York City,

A patron of a New York City Chop't restaurant—a "Creative Salad Company"—happened upon a disgusting dead rodent when chomping into his wrap on Tuesday. The wrap had been made by the Chop't location in the Financial District of Manhattan. According to his supportive friends and colleagues, who tweeted links and photos on his behalf (both which have since been deleted), the wrap-eater had already taken a bite into his lunch when he discovered the deceased rodent. The wrap was made at the 80 Pine Street location, a franchise that had been given an A rating by the NYC health inspector as early as September of last year.

Slacker says he has found a wrapper from the packet of chicken in his meal! He was eating chicken tacos and he took a bite of something and then he looked and it was the plastic from the chicken! Slacker said it even said "Pollo!" He says that he would rather find a band aid than some gauze in his food. Slacker says that they need to change the subject because when someone finds animals or spiders in their food he will never eat again!

Steve says that the weirdest thing is vegetables, whenever he orders food he asks for none and when they are there he wants to know why! He thinks that the band aid that was found in the curry might have had some dried blood on it. Steve says at least it's not as bad as someones gauze!

What's the craziest thing you have found in your food?

Firework Follies

Yi!

Fireworks. They are synonymous with our celebration of Independence Day. Yet, the thrill of fireworks can also bring pain, and even death. In 2011, Consumer Product Safety Commission staff conducted a study of fireworks. Here's what they learned:

1. 200 people on average go to the emergency room every day with fireworks-related injuries in the month around the July 4th holiday.
2. Injuries by Gender: 68% male, 32% female
3. Most Injured Body Parts: 46% hands and fingers, 17% eyes, 17% heads and faces, 5% trunk, 4% arms, 11% legs
4. More than half the injuries were burns.
5. Injuries by Fireworks Type: 17% Sparklers, 14% Reloadable Shells, 13% Firecrackers, 7% Roman Candles, 6% Bottle Rockets, 6% Novelties, 2% Multiple Tubes, 1% Fountains, 3% Public Display, 29% Unspecified
6. Injuries by Age: 40% 25-44, 14% 45-64, 10% 10-14, 10% 15-19, 9% 20-24, 9% 5-9, 7% 0-4, 1% 65+

Slacker is not at all surprised that it is mostly guys getting injured. He says that he remembers his brothers welding potato cannon type of things together to shoot stuff off around the 4th of July. Slacker wants to challenge the women listening to admit that they have done dumb things with fireworks.

Steve said that when he was a kid, he and his friends would strap bottle rockets onto their bikes and fire them at each other James Bond style. He says the guys with the wax-tipped bottle rockets always one because those hurt the most.

Have you ever had or seen a firework accident? A near miss?

Big Fights

Yi!

A woman was driving down Interstate 77 in North Carolina on Saturday when she noticed a man riding on the back of a sedan car speeding in front of her . She recorded footage on her cell phone. The woman and her family say they saw the unidentified man then break the back windshield and climb inside and that the car was being driven by a woman who had a child in a car seat. The vehicle was going around 50mph on the busy road as other drivers looked on. Authorities received several calls about the incident, but troopers say they don't have enough evidence yet to investigate. They believe the driver and person on the back of the car probably know each other and that a domestic incident may have been taking place. If police do track these people down, they said the driver will likely be arrested.

Slacker said he saw another story in the news of a guy that was bullying a hot dog vendor on a pier. That guy kept getting in the vendor's face and the vendor kept trying to back away. The bully took a swing and totally missed so the vendor clocked him one time and knocked the bully out!

What was your biggest fight ever?

OPP: Neighbor's 4th of July Party

Yi!

Olivia joined us on the air to share her OPP today. Her neighbor throws a loud, obnoxious 4th of July party every year. They are in the backyard all night lighting fireworks, drinking and playing guitars. Olivia hasn't had a problem with it in years past, but she has a new baby this year. She's concerned the neighbor's partying will keep the baby up all night and doesn't want to deal with it. She's thinking of confronting her neighbor or calling the cops on him as soon as it gets loud.

Steve said that she has dealt with the party in years past, so she can't suddenly get upset and change her ways just because she had a baby. Slacker agrees with Steve and says that it's almost hypocritical of her to get angry about it this year.

Slacker says that this guy is crazy enough to blow stuff up and he probably won't take it well if she confronts him. Steve says that guys like this usually don't forget and will most likely look for revenge if Olivia confronts him.

Should she confront the neighbor and tell him to keep it down or just call the cops on him when they're loud? How should she handle it?

Amusement Park Horrors

Yi!

A ride at SeaWorld San Diego broke down Sunday, leaving people stuck hundreds of feet in the air for hours. The 48 people on the Skytower were lowered to safety just before 7:30 p.m., nearly four hours after the ordeal started. A teenage boy was taken to the hospital for anxiety. The Skytower raises riders hundreds of feet in the air and slowly spins to show panoramic views of San Diego. The ride became suspended about 220 feet in the air after losing power. SeaWorld technicians ended up fixing the problem, but the fire department was put on stand-by. SeaWorld spokesman David Kontz released the following statement Sunday night:
"SeaWorld's San Diego's Skytower ride experienced a power failure this afternoon. With guest safety as our top priority, park engineers spent four hours trouble-shooting the problem before restoring power to the Skytower and safely returning the 46 guests to the ride loading area. The guests were never in danger and park officials were in constant communication with them while the power failure was being addressed. Two SeaWorld employees were also in the Skytower providing guests with water and snacks. The San Diego Fire Department was on scene, however, there was no requirement for an emergency evacuation. We greatly appreciate the patience of our guests, and they received return admission and other park amenities. The cause of the power failure is under investigation."

Slacker said the idea of getting stuck on a ride and having to crawl down a cherry picker to get down scares him. He says the cars on the ride are designed to get you through the ride safely. When you leave the safety of the car, that's when you get into the danger zone.

Steve says he will ride any ride pretty much any ride. He says you pay the amusement park to thrill you, and what better thrill than the ride falling apart on you. He will admit that he is terrified of the tea cup rides at amusement parks.

What's the craziest thing to happen to you at an amusement park?

UPDATE: Stop Sister's Wedding

Jen, the girl that broke up her sister's wedding because she is in love with the groom came on the air to share an update with us. Trevor, the groom didn't show up to the wedding and he had disappeared. She got this email from him and she wanted to share it with us:

Jen,
I wanted you to know that I'm okay. I've been staying with a buddy for a few days trying figure this all out. First, I want to say that I really understand how big of a leap it was for you to talk to me and I appreciate your honesty. I couldn't lie to myself, or to Amanda, and go through with the wedding because I have thought about that kiss too. What you said to me made me realize that I couldn't marry Amanda because it wouldn't be fair to her. She is an amazing woman and I couldn't marry her knowing that I was thinking about another woman, especially her sister. I know it will take some time but it will be better this way in the long run. I just didn't know how to tell her that on our wedding day and that's why I ran. I know it was cowardly, but it was the only thing that seemed logical that day.

Jen I also want you to know I ran because I couldn't be "that guy." I couldn't be the kind of man that leaves his bride at the altar to get with her sister. I need to take some time to figure all this out. I'm sorry.

Trevor

What do you think the email means?
