Horoscope by Slacker And Steve,posted Apr 30 2012 8:17PM
Slacker checked his horoscope and decided to live by what it said. He is an Aries and it said he should do things in groups so he is going to The Voice chat with Kirk Montgomery tonight after the show. For a few minutes they were joined by Kim, Mark and Kirk from 9news and they talked about their horoscopes.
Slacker doesn’t spend the whole day reading this. Getting ready for the show he looks at a bunch of websites and one is a horoscope website so he reads it real quick. If it says a major work decision is going to happen then he goes to work and he has to make a decision. Steve thinks this is stupid and doesn’t think you should live your life by your horoscope.
So I am a Libra and I decided to read my horoscope which I normally don’t do. It said that new ideas are expanding in my future and it could come to me today on some level through an unexpected source, maybe in a dream. If it does come through I shouldn’t think it is crazy. I need to do some research and consult with people I know. The thing with this kind of stuff is it is so broad that you can apply it to anyone. It can work for me so let’s see if I have any dreams tonight.
YI!! Have you had a moment in life where it could have been taken straight out of a movie? A woman near Atlanta was driving her car and it was about to hit a power pole. She leapt from her car right before it rammed into the pole and burst into flames. Then the pole broke and landed on the car. Luckily the woman had minor injuries, and the accident is still under investigation.
Personally, I never thought I would experience a movie moment, but...One night I decided to stay at the station because it was snowing and if you don't know this already...I am terrified of driving in the snow. Anyways, one guy had just left the station and made it home safely, but when I told him I was staying at the station, he seemed concerned. I didn't think anything of it because what was there that could be done? Well, twenty minutes later he surprised me and showed up out of the blue. He drove all the way back in the snow to be my knight in shining armor. He'll never know it, but that moment meant the world to me.
Yi! I am writing because a woman has placed me in an awkward position. The woman, who is best friends with a woman I am casually dating, recently sent me a shot of her cleavage and then asked me to return the favor. I haven't as of yet and am not sure if I should tell the woman I am seeing about what her friend did. I have to admit. It kinda turned me on. Do you think they are testing me to see if I am faithful or did my secret admirer send it because she wants me? Ryan
Slacker and Steve say woman do this all the time. Slacker doesn’t think he is a victim because if he really wanted to be with the girl he would have said something to the friend and wouldn’t be writing the show for help. Steve thinks he is still the victim because he doesn’t know what to do because so he is asking for help. Slacker says if it is too easy to get, then it must be a trap.
Personally it depends on the girls. I would never have my best friend do that for me because I think it would be disrespecting my friend. I also would trust the guy I am dating and not try to test him. Yet I know some girls do this, so it does happen. I think he should just delete the picture and go on like nothing happened. If it continues I would tell the girl to stop. I wouldn’t lead both girls on this will just cause major problems in the future.
Producer Dave’s wife is hooked on this series 50 Shades of Grey and read it for hours all weekend. It is the number one bestselling book for women, and a lot of women love it. It has a lot to do relations talk in it.
Slacker and Steve don’t understand why they read this. They want to know why woman can’t put the books down. Slacker says he would read a few pages once in a while, but he doesn’t get how woman can read for hours.
I have not read the books because I don’t read very often. Since they are so popular I may read them eventually. I can understand how women can’t put books down though because you want to know what happens next, like you never stop a movie in the middle you have to watch the whole thing.
Stupid Men by Slacker And Steve,posted Apr 30 2012 5:29PM
Even men can admit they don’t always do the smartest stuff. How is it that they can be intelligent, successful people, but can risk it all for one escapade? This has baffled women since the creation of man. Is it because they think with their daddy parts and their decisions always include relations? Maybe it is because they are stupid? The answer to this irrational behavior is arrogance.
Slacker says when men start thinking with their parts when they starting doing stupid stuff. When Slacker was in college a girl called him for relations, so he left a party to go to Longmont to meet the girl. He was speeding and got pulled over by the cops. Slacker says Steve refused relations because he had just cleaned the comforter.
I don’t think all men are like this but they do make decisions that woman just will never understand. Someone told me that men don’t put emotions into things while women do and that is the big difference. They won’t change their ways so might as well get use to it. I have heard some stories about what my boyfriend use to do but luckily he has mellowed out.
Do you have any deep dark secrets in your family? Are your parents cousins? Is your “sister” really your mom? Is your brother really in prison, not Iraq?
Steve seems to think he is a part of the all American family and doesn’t think he has a deep dark family secret, but he finally gave in. He was told a few years ago that his grandfather on his father’s side hooked up with one of his secretaries and now he has a half-something somewhere out there.
Also, Steve has a first cousin that he thought was hot, but once he found out she was adopted he realized it was totally legal and he “Got it done.”
Slacker tried to deny he has any family secrets, but Steve was pushing him on something. One of Slacker’s brother’s wives hit on him one night after everyone fell asleep, but nothing happened. He never even considered it. He doesn’t see how that’s a deep dark secret…
Yi Slacker and Steve-
My boyfriend and some friends at school are really putting a lot of pressure on me. I’m 17 and I’m still a virgin. My boyfriend really wants to lose it together and my friends are telling me just to do it. I kind of want to but I’m still not sure. I’m not on the pill and I really don’t want to get pregnant. I don’t know if I should go ask my mom if I can be on it because she’ll know why I’m asking. I’m just kinda scared about it all I guess and I just need some help telling my boyfriend all of this without hurting his feelings. What should I say?
Slacker wants to believe in his heart that she’s not going to give into the peer pressure. Slacker, as a boy, he wanted to lose his, same for all guys and there was no pressure. If there was an opportunity, he was going to lose it, but for young women it’s bad. He wonders since she’s so scared, if she just doesn’t know enough knowledge on relations and all the things that could come with it.
Steve doesn’t have a clue on what to tell Becca. He doesn’t want her to give into the pressure.
What advice do you have for Becca?
I know Becca is scared to talk to her mom about birth control and relations, and all that fun stuff that comes with it, but to be honest…I think it’s just time to have that talk. I know I never got the talk, but my mom did discuss birth control with me because she also knew that I was dealing with cramps. It helped open up our relationship and made things easier for us to discuss. At 17, you are almost an adult and I would hope Becca doesn’t give into the peer pressure and waits until she is ready, but the talk doesn’t hurt. Be brave! You can do it!
A woman filed a lawsuit and won $5.77 million against the video company of Girls Gone Wild after she claimed she never wanted to expose her breasts. The woman claims she was just having fun when an employee of Girls Gone Wild came over and lifted up her tank, revealing her nipples. At the time she was only 20-years-old and she was put in the DVD titled 'Sorority Girl Orgy 2.’ Now she is a stay-at-home mom and it’s hurting her marriage. Do you think this is fair?
Slacker wants to know… Whether you’ve been involved in one of these videos or not, do you think a girl who’s dancing in front of a Girls Gone Wild camera should have reasonably assumed something like that was going to happen?
Slacker and Steve also wanted to bring something up that’s so crazy they just had to share! Apparently in Egypt, they are debating a law to let men have sex with their wives’ corpses for up to six hours after they die? The law came up when a Muslim cleric said that a marriage is a bond that lasts beyond death so you should be able to have physical relations after death, too. What do you think of this?
Slacker and Steve already told you…They are not bringing the funny! It’s all on you today! It’s the end of the week and they’ve completely run out of funny. Do you have an impersonation? Or a great joke, like the talking muffin? Who knows what doors this could open for you! Make us laugh!
Oh man, I am the worst at telling jokes but I think I have a pretty funny story to tell...Although I’m telling you, I’m pretty bad at sharing stories, too. Anyways, it has to do with our dear friend Jackie Selby from KOSI 101.1, our sister station, that just left us yesterday for San Francisco. Just the other day I was talking with her and one other in the studio when she went to grab an apple she purchased. See, she was rubbing the apple onto her sleeve and I was really confused…See I never knew that was how you could get rid of the dirt…Anyways, that’s not the point. As we were discussing the apple, she took a giant bite into it and juice squirted out! Why is that important? …Because it didn’t just scatter everywhere…It’s like it had a planned attack towards me! All the juice went right into my face! It was so hysterical; we were cracking up laughing for a while. I guess you had to be there…I warned you I wasn’t the best at this.
Hi! My name is Kelsey and I need help with my mom. I’m 16 and she is trying to make me to a bunch of stuff I don’t want to. She already made me play golf this year. Now she wants me to play volleyball next year, she wants me to join the drama class and she wants me to run for student council (she’s already planning how to get me elected next year). The drama class kinda sounds like fun but I really don’t want to do the rest of it. She’s really pushing me because she did it all when she was in high school. She says it helps to build character and will help with college applications. I just want to be me and none of it sounds fun. How do I get her to back off so I can do my own thing and not live her life? Thanks
I remember when I didn’t want to do any extra curricular activity so my parents started to push me into some of them. And you know what? I started to like them. I was gaining new friends, learning new things and they were pretty fun! I understand the feeling of parents forcing their life on you so they can try to re-live their own, but at the same time in this case I think her mom is just trying to look out for her. Plus, her mom makes a good point about college…
What do you think? What advice do you have for her?
Today Sam and August joined us live on the air for another Great Mate Debate.
Sam and August are expecting their second child. August really wants their 7-year-old son, Lennon, to have a strong bond with his younger sibling so he wants to start that bond by allowing him into the delivery room when the baby is being born. He thinks it will be a great life lesson for Lennon, but Sam hates the idea! She doesn’t want her son to see her in that condition plus August barely made it through the Lennon’s birth, so why would they put a child through that?
Whose side are you on?
To be honest, I’ve never given birth or been in a delivery room, but I’m kind of leaning towards August’s side. Maybe I’m comparing this situation to watching Kourtney Kardashian giving birth on TV but I do think this is a great idea. I think it will be a great life lesson and make their son a more respectable man. I think he will understand what a woman goes through and he will treat his woman right. Hopefully…
In Kingwood, Texas, a man thought it would be a great idea to put a rocket launcher on the curb for trash pick-up. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms discovered the rocket launcher and confiscated it. In their words, “We have it in our custody. We’re awaiting word from the U.S. military on whether they want it back or we are going to destroy it. The launcher was 3 feet long, dirty and full of cobwebs and spider eggs."
Bad Bosses by Slacker And Steve,posted Apr 25 2012 8:29PM
Today is national administration professional’s day. Have you ever dated one of your bosses? Have you ever been hit on by a boss? Have you saved the company from losing money? What do you call your boss behind his/her back?
Slacker and Steve wants to know if you have ever been hit on by your boss or dated a boss to get a raise. Steve wants to know if Slacker has done anything because he used to be a boss. Slacker said he didn’t get around to everyone because there were some guys.
My first job I was a dance teacher and my boss was basically family and it was pretty good. Where I work now is amazing I love the people I work with and my boss is awesome. I have never done anything to get a raise because I don’t think that’s right. I have never been a secretary though.
New Orleans Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis has been accused of placing a listening device in a Superdome suite that allowed him to hear the opposing teams plays. The Saints are denying the ESPN allegations. ESPN says the eavesdropping took place between 2002 and 2004.
Steve says Slacker loves to eavesdrop. Slacker was in a restaurant and he overheard a girl breakup with her boyfriend. Steve just loves to listen and soak it all in. He says if they are talking loud enough that basically makes you part of the conversation then you should be allowed to ask questions, especially people on the phone.
I am a huge eavesdropper all the time. If you are loud enough then I am going to listen. On the bus one time the girl behind me was on the phone with I think her boyfriend. She was telling him that she thinks she was pregnant and then they began to argue that it was his. It was a little weird because I would save that conversation for when I saw him in person.
Yi! After years of waiting, I finally got engaged a few weeks ago. The ring is beautiful, but my fiancé told me how much it was worth the other day and I’m really upset. He spent $35,000 on my ring! We have been struggling financially for the last few months and he had this much money put away?!?! Don’t get me wrong, I love the ring and I know we’re not married and technically it’s his money, but that’s a lot of money he had that I didn’t know about. Should I be grateful for the ring…or upset he kept that much money hidden?
Slacker said a statistic said half of partners hide money from their spouse. He thinks she is ungrateful and should just be happy with the ring.
Personally I think she should be happy. If she thinks he will hide money in the future and it is going to bug her maybe she should talk to him about how they want to handle money but I don’t think she should bring up the ring. He might have had that money saved or is making payments on it, and I just don’t think she should bring up the ring.
A study from New York University's Langone Medical Center said that you should wash your sheets once a week in 130 to 150 degree water, and then dry on hot. It also said you should have a cover to protect your mattress and pillow cases. Dead skin cells and other things collect and cause problems for your repertory system.
Slacker never changed his sheets when he was a bachelor. His wife changes the sheets now. Steve does it right after relations or every week. He also takes his comforter to the dry cleaner once a month. He also thinks you should wash your mattress pad. Steve thinks you should buy new pillows all the time, while Slacker thinks you should only buys pillows when you buy a new mattress.
I try to wash my sheets once a week but sometimes it’s a week and a half. I agree with Steve it creeps me out how dirty they get. Plus I love the way clean sheets feel and smell.
According to a survey, 9 out of 10 shoppers make impulse purchases. More than half of that are influenced by sales, thirty percent say they jump at an in-store sale coupons, and twenty-three percent say they just buy to treat themselves. Also Facebook friends are influencing you to make impulse purchases.
Slacker can understand how Facebook can influence what you buy because you see someone get something and talk about it and then you have to have it. His wife will spend hundreds of dollars when there is a sale, because she is saving money but she is still spending a lot.
Steve bought a car on in impulse. He went in and just bought a truck. He thinks he paid over price but he just wanted the truck because it looked cool and he wanted to get out of there. Steve also likes to buy home accent pieces.
I work in a mall so there is always temptation to buy. I try not to get there to early and leave right after to avoid shopping. Luckily the door is not too far from our store so I don’t have to walk buy any stores I like. I really don’t think what my Facebook friends really influence what I buy, but if I do see people with dessert or food it does make me want to go eat that. I like to shop around and make sure I am getting the best deal, but my boyfriend sometimes just likes to buy the first thing and get it over with, and it always doesn’t work out.
What is the biggest thing you have bought on an impulse?
Reese Witherspoon, actress, is expecting her third child and she has been craving seaweed like mad! A source close to her says she has been waking up in the middle of the night craving seaweed smoothies, pickles, peanut butter, and mixing it all together. Also, she has been craving wings smothered in barbeque sauce.
Slacker’s wife couldn’t get enough of anything sour!
What kind of pregnancy cravings are you having or have you had?
A woman in court recently testified that she was traveling and went out to dinner with one of her friends. After dinner they went back to the hotel room where they decided to get it on and during relations a lamp fell on her causing injury to her face. The man testified that he had no recollection on how it happened because they were “going hard” but since she was traveling for her office, the injury occurred “during the course of employment.” The judge agreed with the thirty-year-old woman and she received worker’s compensation.
Slacker remembers when he got some friction burns on his daddy parts. It was a couch/carpet…He was kind of toasted. He knew it wasn’t right, but he just kept going.
What damage happened while you were doing the deed?
Yi guys! I broke up with my boyfriend, Ian, about 6 months ago and to be perfectly honest, I've been dating a lot and haven't found anything close to what he and I had together. I originally broke up with him because we fought a lot and started to really get on each other's nerves. But after a string of horrible dates, I'm starting to miss Ian and see him in a new light. I told some friends about this and they said under no circumstances should I go back to him. But I really miss him and am thinking of giving "us" another try. What do you think?
Slacker has been in this situation before. In fact, he’s been Ella. Slacker was in a relationship with a girl that loved drugs and she would always choose them over him. If she wasn’t so into drugs, she probably would have been the most amazing girl, but that’s what caused them to break up. A while after they broke up he tried to date and every time he would try to put that person through the filter, comparing them to her and it was getting him no where. He went back to her and did the yo-yo things for a while and every time it didn’t work. If it’s not working, he thinks it’s never going to work and you’ve got to stop comparing everyone. Slacker even quoted our good friend, Gregory Behrendt… “It’s called a break-up because it’s broken.”
I am exactly like Ella. After a previous situation, I have started to compare every guy to this one guy and in all honesty, I can’t seem to find anyone better and my mind is telling me I can look past all of the things that went wrong. I’ve come to miss him, think about him…All these things I should be moving past by now, but it’s a lot harder or should I say easier said than done. In truth, I think I could move past all the little things that weren’t working, but to others I seem like a complete fool. He wasn’t the only one that made mistakes though so I feel as if in a way, I have grown through this period. Like Slacker said, which I agree with, that If two people care enough to fight with each other...That I would take that everyday because it means you care and there’s enough passion there where you would start to miss those little things. You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone.I want to believe my friends, but at the same time I want to be someone that makes my own decisions and my own mistakes, and figure things out for myself, but…Ugh…I don’t even know.
Have you ever done the yo-yo thing? What advice do you have for Ella?
Prom is in full swing and got the guys thinking…As a parent, will you be getting a hotel room for your teen? Steve knows not only will they be having a pre-party with drinking, but at the hotel there will be more drinking and relations. He wonders how many kids were conceived on prom night and thinks the parent is being more of a friend. Slacker can’t even imagine what it will be like when his kids grow up and go to prom. Is the hotel room a good idea or bad idea?
As a parent, I will not be getting my kids a hotel room for prom. They can pre-party, whatever, but after prom it’s “after prom” or home. Sorry…
There is a study out that determined that the word creepy hurts a man the worst. Slacker and Steve don’t seem to agree…Steve prides himself on being creepy and Slacker believes there are more words that can hurt more. What Slacker and Steve don’t seem to get, is what exactly makes a guy creepy?
So, we’re going to give you some scenarios and we want to know, is it creepy or cute?
For example, number 1: Someone we know is a soccer coach but he doesn’t have a kid on the team. Slacker thought Steve would say creepy, but Steve actually thinks it’s not creepy. Slacker thinks parents immediately think pedophile style and find it creepy. What do you think? Cute or creepy?
Number 2: Say you go to get a job and you turn the application in, but hours later the guy calls you up and asks you on a date. Is that cute or creepy?
Number 3: Say you went to visit your boyfriend’s family. What if the whole family kisses him on the lips? Is that cute or creepy?
Number 4: What if you were checking your facebook and noticed a friend has a nude photo of themselves pregnant? Cute or creepy?
Number 5: What if you were spending the night with your boyfriend and you discovered he has a raggedy stuffed bear? Is this cure or creepy?
Also, just for fun…Who is creepier? Slacker or Steve? Slacker thinks everyone is going to find Steve more creepy because he is not married and with kids. Is he right?
Last night Steve kept asking me who was more creepy and why. I said both Slacker and Steve are creepy, but in their own ways. For example, Steve likes to grab something and say I’m taking this one or I’m eating this one and if I didn’t know him, I probably would have found that that really awkward. My friends and I like to call that a creeper rather than creepy. I still love you Steve!
A British cell phone company did a survey named Recombu and discovered that nearly half of adults have sexted someone…Forty-seven percent of us admitting we text that person everyday. One in ten of us have accidently sexted the wrong person and one in ten cheating guys have gotten caught because of the intended sext meant for their mistress but got sent to their spouse.
Slacker will text Steve back an forth all the time and they both will say foul things to each other but if he’s texting Steve and puts his phone down and gets another text from say his wife…Then the phone immediately goes to her screen when he clicks on the text message icon and if he’s not thinking he’ll start sending inappropriate things to his wife, which he’s done…Quite a few times…
So be it sexting, e-mail or a butt dial…How has technology screwed you over?
Currently, I have technology screwing me over with my music, specifically my iTunes. I can purchase music on my phone but when I log in on my computer with my Apple ID I am denied access. To me is doesn’t make sense and now I have used up all the space on my phone and have no way of purchasing great, new music. I’m going to have to see an Apple Pro about this…
Slacker and Steve are having two psychics join us live to give reading to the guys and to some listeners. Slacker is open to this but Steve doesn’t believe in this at all.
Slacker was told from Michelle that he was an emperor of ancient Egypt and he didn’t like to wear clothes. He didn’t want to be worn down and just be free. He was a very successful emperor. He is trying to bring acceptance to all. She did a reading on Steve where he was suppose to feel something in his hand but he didn’t believe it too much or feel anything. Meghan is the other psychic that joined the guys. She says that Producer Dave is going to have a baby boy in the future. She said the guys are going to travel, maybe to New Orleans. Steve before the show talked to his boss and they talked about going to New Orleans in the future with the show. She said Slacker is doing something with a book. Slacker just read Steve Jobs book and that he keeps referring back to it. She also said that one of his main priorities is to be a good father, and that he will be doing more with the guitar again.
I don’t know what to believe about psychics. I think there are a lot of fakes out there for sure. I am kind of like Steve I really don’t believe in what they do but I would be open to having a reading to see what it was like.
What do you think about Slacker and Steve’s psychic readings? Are you a believer?
With Love Intern Sarah
Interested in contacting the psychics from the show, here is some information about them and how to get a reading for yourself.

Today, Brittany joined us live on the air to share her OPP.
Brittany is a nanny for a really wealthy family and the mother happens to be around her same size in clothing. So, occasionally she will “borrow” a piece of clothing or jewelry to go out for an evening and will always return the clothing or jewelry before she even begins to notice. She hasn’t stolen anything and she’s always dry cleans anything that was clothing before putting it back. According to Brittany, her boss is one of those women that wears a piece of clothing and then never wears it again.
The problem is, her boyfriend is asking her to stop and he’s getting really upset about it, which she doesn’t understand. She doesn’t think it’s a big deal, but ever since he found out, he thinks it’s stealing. She doesn’t have the money to go out and buy all of these things so she’s just going to borrow a necklace or two to look nice for him. In her brain, this is entirely normal. She thinks if she was taking it and not bringing it back, then it would be a problem. If she did damage something, she would have to talk to her and replace it, but that’s her responsibility and she understands that.
Slacker asked if she would be mad if someone was doing this to her and she replied back saying if it was someone she trusted and they were bringing them back undamaged, then she would be okay with that.
Slacker wanted to try to prove a point and brought up an example. He says if he yanks an iPad from the Apple store and returns it in a week, then it’s no harm no foul, but really…That’s not the case.
Do you think what Brittany is doing is okay? What advice do you have for Brittany?
Personally, I would be upset if I found out she was doing this without asking. I am completely on her boyfriend’s side and she needs to stop doing this. Maybe she should just start asking…She can keep the secret of what she was doing before, but now she needs to do the right thing or maybe…I don’t know…Ask for a raise.
A while back we talked to Shelly about the engagement chicken. She has been dating an amazing guy named Andrew for 3 years now and she's ready to get married. She thought he would propose on Christmas, but nothing. New Years, nothing… Valentine's Day, nothing… And since her friends brought up the recipe, she wanted to know if she should give it a try. After that day, she called us back up later that week to tell us she was going to be making the chicken. The following week, she told us how it went…She said it was great chicken! She enjoyed it very much and he was elated. He didn’t ask her to marry him, but she did feel a change.
It’s been a while now since we talked to Shelly and as far as we know, she was starting to doubt she was ever going to get engaged. She didn’t want to call us much anymore because it was just reminding her of that fact, but last week he took her on a trip so today we talked to her to see if he proposed and… SHE GOT ENGAGED!!
Slacker and Steve wondered if she was going to tell him that she basically drugged him with the engagement chicken, but the three of them decided it was going to be their little secret…Or well, we all have to keep this secret so…Shhhh!
If you want to try the recipe for yourself, click here. Good luck!
We’re talking field trip follies and we want to take this in two angles…
Have you been the volunteer parent? Slacker went on a Catholic field trip and you would think everyone would be religious but the two parents that volunteered were very sinful. They were married, but not to each other and disappeared for a while…When they came back the girl was definitely looking like she fooled around. As a kid he just thought the wind was really bad or something, but now…He gets it.
Do you remember going on a field trip as a kid and something bad happened?
Steve got to go to some military forts, but he doesn’t remember any drama happening.
Mostly Slacker and Steve remember eating sack lunches on their field trips. Slacker remembers his mom wrapping a soda in aluminum foil and he loved pulling it out of the bag. Sadly he remembered his being K brand verse everyone else’s Pepsi.
Yi! Over spring break my daughter came to visit—she lives with my ex and his new girlfriend. I was doing her laundry and discovered my 12-year-old daughter had nothing but thongs for underwear. No panties, no granny panties, just thongs. I was furious! There is no reason for a girl that age to be wearing such sexy underwear! I think she may be having sex and my ex is encouraging it by putting her in such outrageous clothes. Do I have a right to be furious with my ex because of this? How should I handle this?
Slacker prays he never gets divorced…To him this is about those battles that go on between exes and the pawn that is your children, but also at what age you can explore your sexuality?
Steve thinks twelve is way too young. Just because she hit puberty doesn’t mean you need to instantly get a thong. Slacker has no earthly idea if he thinks twelve is too young. Slacker’s wife is from Brazil and they are very open in their sexuality, so he thinks if his daughter expresses interest then his wife is going to be for it. He thinks Becky may be a little naïve in thinking she shouldn’t wear one.
I’m going to come clean and say I own a lot of thongs. In fact, I probably wear them 80% of the time. When I was younger, probably around her daughter’s age, I was wearing really tight pants and I would always see the line of my underwear. Kids at school would notice the line and start to make fun of me so my mom brought up the idea of shopping for thongs that way I didn’t have to show a line. It was a perfect solution so I don’t see anything wrong with what her daughter is wearing.
So, does Becky have the right to be upset? Is twelve too young?
Bars are a notorious pick-up joint…The dim lighting, the music, the alcohol…It all makes for a perfect environment to get that person’s number you’ve been eyeing across the room. Most of the time the picking up is done by the men, but sometimes a woman gets the courage and does it herself. Unfortunately, to some relationship experts, they claim there are a lot of cons to picking up a guy at the bar. One example would be beer goggles. Say you left the bar with Channing Tatum, but in the morning he looked more like Screech from Saved By the Bell…Not pretty…Also, if you think you are hitting it off while drunk that night, chances are you won’t have anything in common to talk to about together within the next few days. Who knows…Maybe you could be putting yourself in a potentially dangerous situation.
Slacker has never seen a girl pick up a guy in a bar. He wonders if women’s game is to more often than not be the prey and then playing the chasing game.
Steve on the other hand, says he has women constantly coming up to trying to pick him up. He says Slacker would have to weed through the women to even start a conversation with him. Steve says most of the time they give him the hair flip and the moistening of the lips, but Slacker begs to differ…But he does realize that women use their physical characteristics to get a man. He read a story that when women turn their body towards you, that it’s a girl hitting on you and Slacker gets confused by that. What if she turned her body to see something else? He doesn’t understand…What is a woman’s game?
During the discussion of picking up guys at the bar, a woman named Christina called. She’s been flipping out all day and heard us talking about this topic, and had to call in. She’s been married to her husband, Brian, for seven years and last night she was ordering some Chinese food while her he was in the shower so she went into his wallet to grab the debit card and found a girls number in his wallet on a napkin from a local bar. For the next couple of hours she became a robot and today she kept thinking to herself, “Do I confront him?” She doesn’t know what to do...If you were a woman and found a number in your man’s number…What would you do?
Christina thinks this situation is not necessarily about the girl…That’s not what’s bugging her, but she thinks it’s just between her and her husband. Slacker agreed with Christina that this isn’t about the women on the napkin. Slacker asked her if she thought he was capable of him cheating on her and she thought that was a very good question. She thinks he should be a therapist. A couple years ago she never would have thought he would have cheated but now her mind has changed a little bit because the last two years have been a little weird. Steve says his buddies that are married that go out to a bar always get hit on and get numbers, but they just throw them in their pocket and forget about it. Slacker says he would have to trash the number before his wife would see it.
In the end, we had one caller named Nick call us about this situation. He thought Slacker and Steve should call this girl and find out what really happened…Then Christina could confront her husband. Christina had the number to the girl and Nick convinced her to let us call the number, which at first Steve was hesitant about, but Slacker was all for it. He thought it was a good idea. If it’s an affair we could stop it before it starts and if it’s nothing, we could ease her pain. The girls name on the napkin, Melissa…We called her and unfortunately she did not answer…The first time. We called it over and over until she finally answered and agreed to go on the air. Melissa had no idea what Slacker and Steve were talking about. She says she is married…She started to think we were prank calling her. All of a sudden, Melissa realized who Christina was. They used to go to high school together and she ran into both of them at The Rio at happy hour. Christina apologized and didn’t even think to put two and two together. Christina’s phone was dead and while she was in the bathroom her husband took the number. Christina is so happy…Her husband is not cheating!
I’m not really one for heading out to the bars at night. The flaws these experts have talked about aren’t quite such mysterious findings. I’ve known about these things since I was old enough to attend a bar. I can’t say I have a bad experience picking up a guy at the bar because I haven’t had much courage to approach one. Usually, I get the creepy dudes that approach me and then I’m just over it and leave the bar. In Christina’s situation, I’m so happy it worked out for her, but like Slacker said…Yeah, the trust isn’t there…”She can wipe that up herself…”
Have you had a bad experience picking up a guy at the bar?
Josh Miller and his fiancé finally found the perfect engagement ring. He hid the ring in a coat in a closet. When he went to get the ring the coat was gone. Josh set the coat onto a pile of clothes meant for Goodwill. Goodwill told him the coat was set out on their floor the same day they received it and the coat and the ring are gone. Is this a sign that Josh shouldn't get married? If the church got hit by lightning the morning of your nuptials is it a sign that you shouldn't get married?
One woman lost her engagement ring twice before her wedding. She called off her wedding.
How about if your cat died the morning of your wedding? How about if your maid-of-honor's appendix ruptured while exiting the limousine before entering the church? Did you have something bad happen right before your wedding and you took it as a sign that you shouldn't marry? Did you end up calling off the wedding?
Today Olivia and Mike came live on the air with us for another Great Mate Debate. They have been together for four years now and both of them have amazing jobs. However, Olivia was just offered a position in Chicago to further her career. The job would be a 2-year placement and double the salary and once it’s over she would return to Denver and run it all. So…She wants to take the job and have a long distance relationship. Mike, on the other hand, thinks a long distance relationship will be impossible. He thinks Olivia will be isolated in a new place and focusing on her career while he’s stuck here with his buddies that always want to go out to the bars and try to force other women on him. The temptation to cheat would be too great…So…Can they make it work or is long distance a bad idea?
Whose side are you on?
At first, I was siding with Olivia, but the more I thought about it…Mike is right. Two years is a long time and it’s enough time for Olivia to change and become a different person. She might grow to love Chicago, find another man…Who knows. I want to believe that the both of them trust each other to the fullest, but if Mike already feels like the temptation to cheat will be too great then it’s not going to be easy or fun for the two of them to be in a long distance relationship. There’s a compromise of flying out to see each other, but the time in-between will be too great. With all that said, I still don’t want to tell Olivia to give up this amazing opportunity she has…I mean…A career that you love…That is everything to you…Ugh, I don’t know what is best for the both of them. What do you think?
Yi! I need some help. I’ve been dating my boyfriend for a year and a half. I love him and everything is great and I kind of feel like it’s time to be honest with him. See, I went into his work and saw him once. We talked for a minute and I really liked him so I kind of started stalking him. I eventually found out what gym he went to and enrolled, found out where he lived and got an apartment close to him and even got a puppy so I could run into him while he was walking his. Everything is great between us now, I just kind of feel like I should tell him that I might have been a little obsessed and ran into him on purpose all the time. Do you think he will think it’s cute or will he think I’m creepy? Should I tell him?
To be honest, I think he will find it both cute and creepy. For one, it’s awkward to find out you were being stalked, but the both of you are so happy together now, which hopefully he will see and realize that it was all meant to work out this way…That you knew in your heart you two were meant to be together. If this is really starting to cause a stir in her stomach then my advice to Melody would be to tell him. If she really thinks it will help heal her conscious then she needs to do it. What do you think?
My Bad! by Slacker And Steve,posted Apr 19 2012 12:00AM
Every year the winning team of the BCS title game in college football is handed the $30,000 Waterford Crystal 'Coaches Trophy'. This year, it went to coach Nick Saban and the University of Alabama Crimson Tide's and one father of a current player tripped over the rug under the trophy display, and down the trophy went into a million tiny pieces. Yikes!
A few years ago in New York at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, one woman accidently tripped and fell into a Picasso painting, causing a rip in the corner.
Just last month, there was a ‘shot of the day’ where a German photographer who was part of the media covering the debut of a 17- day- old earless bunny that captured the hearts of Germany, accidently crushed the little bunny under his foot, and he killed it. Not good…
What did you unintentionally damage or destroy?
I have a great story about my dad. A long time ago we had to go get our car fixed, so we took it in, it got fixed and just as he picked it up and was backing out of the parking lot, he ran right into a poll!! To this day, the back bumper still has the dent. He felt so embarrassed he still hasn’t gotten it fixed. Talk about accidental damage…
There is a new cologne that has the scent of a new Apple Macbook. Have you ever found yourself loving the smell of a new pair of shoes, or a new electronic? Maybe even a new book, scotch tape or even new money. We all love the smell of something that not everyone one can agree with or think you are weird for smelling, not food or flowers.
Steve likes cut grass, and the smell of dry erase markers. He also kind of likes the smell of gasoline, while Slacker doesn’t like any weird smells because there weird. They both liked the smell of the Abercrombie and Fitch cologne that you would smell when you walked by the store. Slacker likes the smell of really good weed, although he would never smoke it.
I love the smell of books and the way book store smells. I also love the smell of clothes straight out of the dryer, like when they are still warm and everything. I do have to say I like the smell of fresh cut grass but it makes me sneeze as well.
What weird smell do you love?
With Love-Intern Sarah

Steve thinks that he can’t be bluffed. He wants people to call in and tell him one fake story and one real story and he will decide which one the listener is bluffing on.
Slacker says Steve is a good poker player but he doesn’t think that Steve can call all these bluffs. Slacker cannot bluff to Steve because Steve knows him so well. Steve said the only thing that might be hard is people will be on the phone and not in person, but he still thinks he can call their bluffs.
Yi! I've been with my fiancé for 10 months. The one problem I have with him is that he's awful in bed. He has NO idea what he's doing. He's clueless. How do you tell someone that they stink in bed? Should I just come out and tell him? What should I do? I don't want to come off as mean or make him feel bad, but the relations we're having has to get better ASAP! I can't take it anymore.
Slacker wouldn’t want to teach his partner. He has been in that position where he has had to teach and thought it was weird. You don’t get married for just relations, but also for companionship. Slacker and Steve think the relationship is already doomed that if you can’t talk to him about this, what can you talk to him about.
I think if this she can’t talk to him she is going to have problems in the future. While relations are important in the relationship they are not everything and there are other things that are more important in the relationship. Show him what you like and give it time.
Do you think Leah should talk to her fiancé about his bad relations?
Slacker and Steve have a friend that had to follow through on a punishment for his four year old child. His son was getting in trouble at school (minor things) and he and his wife came up with a punishment, if their son kept getting in trouble. Their son really likes his hair so they told him that they would shave his head if he messed up again. Well he got two chances and they decided to follow through and shave his head. They boy was so upset crying that no one will like him or want to play with him. It hurt the parents to do it but they had to follow throw with their punishment.
Slacker thinks that this can be emotional abuse. He thinks the kid is really scarred from this because the kid thought no one would like him and have no friends. Steve doesn’t think it is abuse. He says parents need to remove emotion when taking things away from your kids. Steve thinks not letting your kid eat is abuse not this.
Producer Dave is in a similar situation. His younger sister has not been doing good in school and so Dave threatened that if she didn’t get her act together by the 20th of April he would pack up her up move her in with him and change schools. Well the 20th is almost here and she still has bad grades. Dave’s wife is unhappy with this because he didn’t talk to her first and she is going to be home with the sister more, not Dave. Dave doesn’t know if he should follow through with his punishment or put stress on his marriage.
I think the punishment was fine. His hair will grow back quick, and I think it was important that they followed through with their punishment. I think the punishment depends on the kid. If it was a girl I think it would be different. I think it depends on the situation. In Dave’s situation I don’t know what I would do. Maybe he should talk to his wife and see if they can find a solution that can work for them to punish his sister.
Do you think shaving the boys head is emotional abuse? Do you think Dave should follow through on his threat to his sister even though it could cause problems in his marriage?
Sean Swarner, at 13-years-old was told he had Hodgkin’s disease and just three years later he was diagnosed with a second type of cancer and was told he only had 14 days left to live. Yesterday, 22 years later, after he was supposed to be dead, Sean ran the Boston Marathon finish with a time of 4 hours, 52 minutes, and 37 seconds. In 2008 he competed in the Ironman World Championship and in 2002, he became the first cancer survivor to climb Mount Everest! Everyday he continues to fight and climb. He’s climbed the tallest mountain on all seven continents.
This was inspiring to us and it started to make us think…If you had only 14 days left to live, what would you do?
Slacker would be having non-stop relations with his wife and he would hang with his kids maybe one day out of the fourteen. Steve thought Slacker wanted to play Red Rocks but he thought it would be too cold if it was winter, so our Producer Dave told him to wear a jacket.
If Steve had 14 days to live, he would finish off the four drugs he hasn’t done. He would swing by Panda Express and get some orange chicken. He would also get an armored car and smash everybody out of his way. He says Slacker can run shotgun.
If I had 14 days left to live, I would probably spend a day writing letters to everyone I’ve loved, whether they were still in my life currently or not and let them know exactly how I felt about them and what I would always want them to remember. I would let others hand those out of course because then I would be having relations, eating all my favorite foods and joining Steve on his adventure with his armored car.
In New York, a woman faked cancer to get her wedding paid for! She told everyone she was dying of leukemia and when the local newspaper got word of this, they put out a big story on how her last wish was to marry the father of her younger daughter before she passed away and that’s exactly what happened…And it was all for free! Unfortunately for her, when she returned a few months later from her all expense paid honeymoon to Aruba, her husband broke the news she was lying the whole time, faking her diagnosis. He has recently divorced her and she’s been arrested, and charged sitting in jail on $10,000 bail.
Steve has robbed a bar and gotten away with stealing thousands of dollars in liquor. Also, Steve stole $20 from his mom and Slacker finds that going to hell material more than stealing from the bar. He even thinks he is going to hell because he basically killed a dog by blaming it and having it put down.
Slacker can’t think of a single reason why he would go…
What have you done to reserve your place in hell?
I’m not going to lie…I’ve reserved my spot in hell a long time ago. I haven’t done anything like fake cancer or cheat but it only takes one little white lie to make you a sinner. I don’t think you want me to get into the whole religious side of things though, so we will leave it at that. J
Heidi joined us live on the air today to discuss her problem. She and her husband made a pack to quit smoking and he’s been doing great at it. In fact, he’s so serious about it that when she got caught by him, he made it very clear that if she was caught again it would be like she’s cheating. Well, it has happened again. She fell off the wagon and she knows she can’t tell him so she’s been carrying around extra clothes, spray for her hair and other things to help decrease the smell of smoke. She’s taken so many pre-caution steps, but the more she smokes, the more she realizes how upset he would be and the guilt continues to grow. Slacker had a question for Heidi…”How can you love that nasty thing that you know is killing you, more than your husband?” Heidi calls it an addiction. She doesn’t want to love it, she loves her husband, but she can’t stop. She’s so stressed out all the time she needs that one moment of bliss. Slacker wanted to know if she also cries while she is smoking because he would feel so horrible. He would feel so much guilt for still smoking.
So, how does Heidi quit? Does she need to come clean to her husband?
Do you know someone that was a secret smoker? Were you?
Man, I don’t know what to tell Heidi. Like Slacker, I have never touched a drug or smoked a cigarette in my life, so I don’t know how her husband would react in this situation. I assume it wouldn’t be the end of the world and he wouldn’t call her a cheater, but rather he would just get upset and watch out for her more. Almost like she had a leash, but I don’t think that would be a bad thing either because maybe it’ll be more motivation and support to help Heidi quit for good. What advice do you have for Heidi?
04/20 by Slacker And Steve,posted Apr 17 2012 6:06PM
Slacker has never done a drug in his life and Steve can count on one hand how many drugs he hasn’t done…And well, 4/20 is this Friday. This year, the University of Colorado is trying to prevent their popular pot smoking event. Last year 10,000 rolled into campus and attended the annual smoke fest. This year, the university is making the campus off limits to everyone who is not a student or staff member so they plan on spreading fish fertilizer over the entire area where the event is held, which would make the area virtually unbearable. Are you upset about this? Do you think this is a smart decision of the university? Slacker doesn’t think it is because it’s one day and yet you are going to let your campus smell awful for weeks!
I say it’s one day out of the year so let people have their fun. Whatever…Maybe we should make 4/20 the one day it is considered legal. No?
In California, a brown bear weighing more than 400 pounds found its way into a residential area and started wandering around. The California Department of Fish and Game had officers shoot the bear with a tranquilizer dart but it didn’t work and it tried to escape by crossing backyards. Eventually, the bear trapped itself in a corner and an hour later the bear was put on a tarp where it was dragged away. They tagged the bear for tracking and it was sent back out into a nearby forest.
In Vermont, the Governor was walking around in his birthday suit when he noticed black bears eating out of his bird feeders. He yelled at the bears and then made the unfortunate mistake of going outside to grab the bird feeders so the bears wouldn’t come back. As he stepped outside, a bear attacked him, but he was able to get back inside the house.
In Chicago, a 37-year-old man was checking on his animals in his kayak on a pond when one of his swans he uses to keep geese away, got angry and attacked him. The swan caused him to fall out of his kayak and continued to chase after him until he drowned.
In Florida, a public park is closed until further notice all because of a couple of raccoons. A mother and child were attacked on the playground and another woman was attacked while eating lunch. They still don’t know why the raccoons are so angry…
Just yesterday morning I had my very own animal encounter. Let me start by saying geese and I are not friends. When I was in high school I was shooting photography and some of them got mad so they started to fly at me while pooping! It was terrifying! Well, yesterday I was heading into work and at first I was driving down a lane in the parking lot when geese were crossing so I had to stop and wait. When I finally parked I started heading to the entrance and those same geese were just standing there! Obviously, I didn’t want to make them upset and they were already hissing at me so…I waited…And waited…And finally they decided to move and went on in. It was ridiculous!
Slacker noticed how much of a distain the geese have for us around here. Steve thinks they are getting better and starting to use the crosswalks but Slacker see’s them stop in the middle of the cross-walk, poop, and then he has to continue to wait.
A survey was done by an adulterer website that said cheating husbands like Toyotas while, cheating wives like Hondas. What car you drive represents your life style and this survey says that people having affairs are everyday people. For Toyota there was 20% while for Honda it is 22%. After that the numbers are much lower.
Slacker and Steve had some callers call in to tell them what car they drove, then they asked if they ever cheated and all the callers said yes. They were shocked that the cars were Hondas and Toyotas and not more expensive cars like BMW’s.
I don’t think it really matters what car you drive if that is a sign that you are a cheater. I see it as more people drive Toyotas and Hondas so of course more cheaters would drive those cars. I do not drive either of those cars; I drive something that is very low on the list. I have never cheated so I guess that part is right.
Do you think what kind of car you drive makes you a cheater?
Stuck by Slacker And Steve,posted Apr 11 2012 7:32PM
A 7 year old boy in Sweden had to be rescued by firefighters when he got stuck in a top-loading washing machine for two hours. He wanted to explore the inside and his hips got stuck inside. The firefighters had to dismantle the entire machine to get the boy out.
Slacker as a kid got his head stuck in between the railing on the stairs. He had to wait awhile till his mom got home and she buttered him out. He said his ears hurt for a long time.
When I was younger I spent a lot of time with my older cousins. They had a shorter basketball hoop in their backyard. Well one day I was probably getting on my older cousins nerves and he picked me up and put me in the basketball hoop. I was in there for a few minutes trying to figure out how to get out. I was afraid if I slide through I would get stuck so I pulled my legs up and jumped off. For a young that was pretty scary and high up. Now when I look at that hoop I just laugh because it is so short.
Carla is getting married in a few months and her fiancée really wants her to change her last name to his. She says she is an only child and she just doesn’t want to lose her name. She is a very independent woman and she doesn’t want to change who she is. Carla doesn’t know what to do because neither of them wants to give in. She wants to know how to get her fiancée to understand.
Steve thinks if she wants to keep her name she should. He says we are in a place where it doesn’t matter and that he would be down to take the woman’s last name if it was cooler than his. Slacker does kind of care. He doesn’t know if it would ruin his relationship but he feels like it kind of ruins things, like your one step out the door. Slacker says women dream about the dress and all that, while guys maybe think about just having a Mrs. with the same last name.
I think she should just hyphenate her name. It is easy middle ground were they are both getting what they want. She is still who she has always been and that won’t change it. If I was in her shoes and it was this important to my fiancée I would change my name. You’re starting a life with this person.
At a Target there is an employee that is hard of hearing. When they are working a checkout line Target posts a sign that says this cashier is hard of hearing so that the customers know.
Slacker and Steve don’t think it is fair that they are pointing his disability. Steve says they are saying the sign is there for ignorant people. They think that in some way they can understand so that people know if the employee doesn’t hear them they are not ignoring you, but they think it is still a little mean. Slacker doesn’t know which side he is on.
Personally I think it is so wrong. I work with someone hard of hearing and they do just fine without a sign. We don’t need to label anyone with their disabilities. They only way I would be ok with this is if the employee asked for it and wanted it. Other than that we don’t need to label everyone.
Do you think Target or any employer should be allowed to do this?
There are 10 people you will see at your reunion: the jock, the cheerleader, the nerd, the party guy, the band geek, the sexually frustrated guy, the class president, the weird alternative girl, the overconfident dweeb, the foreign exchange student, and that one kid. You will be shocked by how much people change in that first 10 years to be something the defiantly weren’t in high school.
Slacker had a tour bus pick him up at his reunion while Steve finally got to sleep with the quarterback ( well Steve didn’t go to his and it was the quarterback of the powder puff team). They both don’t know why they have reunions because you don’t talk to these people nor do you care. Producer Dave’s reunion is coming up and he wants to arrive in a helicopter. Plus with Facebook who needs reunions anymore.
I still have five years till my 10 year high school reunion and I am not sure if I will go when the time comes. I still talk to a few people from high school like my best friend and my boyfriend went to the same high school as me. For the most part I don’t care to talk to people from high school. We have all moved on and I wish them all the best. I guess in five years we will see if I go.
Did you go to your reunion, or are you planning on going?
In a new Australian study, one-third of young women said sometimes they get the blues after having relations. Ten percent of them admitted to always being said! Others said they felt melancholy, anxious, restless, tearful or irritable. Have you ever been sad after having relations?
Slacker and Steve say all men would say they never get sad after relations; they just get tired.
Slacker asked Steve what he would do if this situation happened to him. What if she started to cry? Steve answered and said he would ask her if he did anything wrong? He would turn it on himself. They really want to get to the bottom of this. All Steve wants to know is why? Why does this happen? They want the sisterhood of the Slacker and Steve show to come together and say its okay…This kind of stuff happens and get to the bottom of this.
I’ve been sad maybe once or twice after relations but that’s because it was just my day in general. Kind of like the whole, I don’t feel like it, but he wants it so whatever. Other than that I really haven’t so I’m interested to hear what others have to say.
Surprises are always a blast when they go off without a hitch but sometimes…They get ruined…
In fact, our Producer Dave has witnessed quite a few inside the Chili’s he used to work at. One night a family came in; a son, his girlfriend and his parents. The son had made known to the staff that he was going to be proposing to his girlfriend that night. Well, one staff member made the mistake thinking it was the father proposing and saw the ring on the mom’s finger and said, “Congratulations, you did it!” The son was mortified…The surprised was ruined, but he proposed anyways and she said yes.
Have you witnessed a surprise ruined? How did you ruin a surprise?
Yi! Apparently while doing takes with our tax lady, I found out my husband won a scratch off for $20,000. He failed to tell me we won anything. I only saw it on the form since we both go to meet her. He says he kept it from me because he said I would get upset if I didn't get my way with it or have any of it to play with. He spent it on paying off credit cards and for a vacation we took in December.
Basically he dictated where it was spent without my input. If the tables were turned he would have had a fit. But because he thought he was being so righteous with it, he's justified in his decision not to tell me which infuriates me. How does he know I wouldn't have wanted to do exactly what he did with the money? It's the lack of telling me that I'm more mad about.
For Slacker its about this…She would have the right to throw a fit if he went out to a strip club and wasted the money, but he used it correctly. What if it was a bonus he got from work? Would it have made a difference? What if he bought stock years ago, didn’t tell her and it went down over the years? Steve thinks although he may have done the right thing with the money, he also did the wrong thing by not telling her because couples should tell each other everything.
Slacker says a marriage is a series of battles and you have to learn to pick the battle you want to fight. Is it worth digging your heels in on this one? What if it turns into, what else are you hiding?
Do you think she has the right to be upset?
Ok, if I was in Erica’s shoes, I would be upset for maybe ten minutes and then I would have forgotten all about it. It would not be a fight I would dig my heels into because truthfully it comes off like her husband did the right thing. Not only did she get treated with a great vacation, but he also helped pay off debt so they could live a more comfortable life. I would give him a kiss on the cheek and say thank you.
Oddly enough, we have what we believe is an email from her husband and that still doesn’t change my opinion. Here is his letter:
You don't know my wife and her problem with money. When she has it it's gone faster than Myspace fell from this planet.
I avoided the "why can't I just spend a little bit of it and get some new clothes?"
I won the money and didn't even spend it on myself. The debt I paid off was created by her. Why not pay it off before spending more? There's no need for her to be mad just because I didn't tell her unless I spent it on hookers and beer. I did neither.
Now that she's badgering me about winning and not telling her I really wish I bought the beer.
She has no reason to be angry.
What are your thoughts on all this now? Do you have any advice for Erica and Jeff? Who is right?
"Blossom" star Mayim Bialik has written a book called, Beyond The Sling: A Real-Life Guide To Raising Confident, Loving Children The Attachment Parenting Way, and in the book she has admitted she still breastfeeds her three and a half-year-old son and lets her six-year-old sleep on two mattresses in their bedroom every night. She also says her family lives in a one bedroom house and there’s no playroom because they don’t believe in giving their kids expensive toys.
Slacker was completely creeped out by the breastfeeding. He thinks she should have stopped a long time ago, right around the time they were growing teeth. Slacker’s wife stopped breastfeeding Mia when she was around eight or nine months because she had her bottom teeth.
I have to agree with Slacker. I think breastfeeding needs to stop once a child is starting to develop teeth and when they are no longer getting the nutrition they need.
At what age do you think breastfeeding should stop? What do you think about Mayim Bialik’s other parenting skills?
Today, we are embracing and breaking down stereotypes. No matter your race, religion, sexual orientation, whatever…If you want to discuss a stereotype that is who you are, we want you to open up and admit whether you fulfill the stereotype or you are the exact opposite of the stereotype.
Slacker says deep down stereotypes are not racists and stereotypes are more often than not, true. For example, he has a lot of gay friends and they usually have the stereotype with a womanly voice and that’s okay, but sometimes there’s that gay man that has a really strong manly voice and is really muscular. Our producer Dave, his best friend that’s black, has a picture of him holding watermelon on his phone. If anyone saw that, they would think Dave is a racist pig as Slacker would say but he’s not. Slacker is whiter than white and he lives in suburbia, but he hates ranch, so he broke a stereotype. Steve is half Hispanic and he hates the food and is not the best at landscaping. Slacker and Steve have a friend that is Jewish and his favorite thing to say is free bacon. He loves to make fun of his own stereotype.
In the media, there is a Burger King commercial with Mary J. Blige slinging about chicken strips. Everyone is in an uproar calling the commercial racist. Do you think it is?
A poll was done on women asking them what their perfect man would have or be like. According to the poll the perfect man must drink beer, eat meat, drive an Audi, phones his mom twice a week, is 6ft tall, and earns 75k a year. A bonus would be him clean shaven and a hair free chest. It also said that vegetarians are a turn off, and they would rather have their man watch sports than reality TV. They also would want their man to admit he was checking another woman out.
Slacker and Steve don’t agree with all of these. They think women would want a different car than an Audi for one. Slacker says Steve is nothing on the list, but Steve says the people who call in they will describe him.
While I can agree or understand most of these there are a few I think are a little weird. While I would want a guy taller than me he doesn’t have to be 6ft. My boyfriend is barely taller than me. Also I don’t think he needs to drive an Audi. I want a nice guy that likes to do different things. I want a guy that calls his mom but is not always running to her. I want someone athletic, and smoking is a major turn off. I think I have a great guy right now!
Hickeys by Slacker And Steve,posted Apr 9 2012 8:21PM
There is a recent picture of Kim Kardashian with a hickey on her neck. This sparked Slacker and Steve to ask a few questions. One how do you get rid of a hickey, two when are you too old to have hickeys, and three how do you give a hickey?
Slacker can’t believe Producer Dave doesn’t know how to give a hickey. Slacker and Steve don’t know why people walk around with hickeys. They are fine with people biting but change spots so you’re not leaving read marks. They think they are childish and a adult shouldn’t be walking around with one.
I think hickeys are trashy. It is very unprofessional to be walking around with them on your neck. Even when I was younger I hated them, and would never let anyone give me one. At least people should put them where no one can see them. If they are all over your neck that is not attractive and just trashy.
How do you get rid of a hickey, and when are you too old for one?
Have you ever had to pick your mom up in the middle of the night from a booty call because she went home with a guy she just met at the bar? Has your dad ever hit on your friends, or had to go pick up your dad after he was detained for drunken and disorderly?
Steve knew some kids in school that would get high with their parents in school, and would even ask their kids if they had any weed for them. Slacker and Steve got a letter from someone who said he got a call from his mom at two in the morning to come pick her up at some guys house that she went home with. When she got in the car her hair was all messed up and reeked of relations. Then she told him it was ok to have fun before you get old, and that she and his dad stopped having creative relations when he was born.
Luckily my parents not at all like this, and I will never have to worry about them being trashy. Most of the people I know also have pretty normal parents. One of my friends has pretty normal parents until their dad gets drunk. He is a mean drunk telling people everything that is wrong with them, and sometimes tries to be violent. I don’t think it bothers him that he gets that way.
Today’s OPP come from Shannon and she joined us live:
Shannon has lived in this neighborhood for awhile and their block is very close. They have get togethers all the time and they are all about the same age. They have one neighbor where the man is a horrible guy that no one likes and the woman is very nice. So this woman called Shannon and said she was leaving her husband. So Shannon told her that she was doing the right thing and everyone hated him. Yesterday they had an Easter party and they showed up as a couple like they were staying together. She said it was weird between them like they both were embarrassed and didn’t know what to say to each other.
Slacker thinks she screwed up the whole neighborhood dynamic and should just put her house up for sale. Slacker and Steve both agree that you shouldn’t talk bad about anyone’s partner until the divorce papers are signed. They think that the relationship with that neighbor will not be the same and if other neighbors find out that she told that none of them liked the guy they won’t want to talk to her anymore either.
I think Shannon should talk to her neighbor. It can be very casual. I would just ask her how things are going and tell her whatever she chooses you will support her. I think the neighbor is more embarrassed because since she is staying with her husband she might think Shannon won’t like her anymore. I think they just need to talk it out and it will blow over soon enough.
There are things that happen to us over and over that we feel like we are the only person in the world that it keeps happening to. In Steve’s case he is convinced that he is the only person in the world that keeps getting cut off by people turning right in front of him.
Steve also feels like when he gets stuck in traffic he gets behind a person who needs to leave a ton of space between cars and lets every other car in front of him, and then Steve isn’t moving anywhere. Slacker went to the grocery store and he saw a checkout lane that was going pretty fast and wondered why no one else got in that lane. He quickly found out that he got behind the person who writes a check and needs help taking their groceries out. Evertime Producer Dave sees and open window he wants to throw something at the window to see if he can make it in.
I kind of have a similar story to Steve but I always feel like I get stuck behind the worst drivers ever. From women putting on makeup, people texting on their phone, or just driving 20 below the speed limit. They always seem to come out when I have somewhere to be as well. People just need to focus on driving.
Most of the time when a woman is pregnant and goes into labor, she sits comfortably…for the most part…in a nice hospital bed. Sometimes, it doesn’t always go as planned though…And that water breaks, you’re in a bizarre place and that baby is coming! Unfortunately for you it’s not how you would have liked it to have gone, but for us it makes for some great stories. For example, in mid-air a flight attendant helped deliver a baby! And just on a side note, the airline made her pay for an extra seat because of the newborn…Um…what? Also, a doctor helped deliver a baby aboard a passenger ferry. The ferry ride was only ten minutes long! That’s one fast labor!
Today Whitney joined us live on the air to discuss her OPP. Whitney is engaged and she knows very well that her mother does not approve of her fiancé, so…She has decided not to invite her mother to the wedding. She doesn’t understand why someone would someone at their wedding that will frown upon their marriage. Plus, if she decided to speak out against her marriage, it could ruin everything. With that said however, her fiancé wants to look past the fact that his future mother-in-law doesn’t like him and still have her attend the wedding. He thinks it’s only right to have her there as part of her daughter’s biggest day. So, what should Whitney do? Invite her mom and risk it all or leave her out of the plans?
I think Whitney’s fiancé is right. It is her big day and although she doesn’t want her there, I do think down the road she will regret not having her mother there. I think on the day of the wedding her mom will learn to keep her mouth shut and see the love they both have for each other and will come to terms with in and in fact grow to like him. Kind of like the Kardashian’s growing to like Scott…
When your job sucks, there is no better feeling than making a huge scene on your way out the door! Well in all of history, we have a list of the 9 greatest “I Quit” moments…Here’s a few below and feel free to check out the rest here.
1. GREG SMITH, GOLDMAN SACHS
"I truly believe that this decline in the firm's moral fiber represents the single most serious threat to its long-run survival."
-- The former Goldman executive director, in a column in The New York Times.
2. CAROL BARTZ, YAHOO
"These people f----- me over. . . . Now they're trying to show that they're not the doofuses that they are."
— The former CEO, speaking about the Yahoo (YHOO) board, in an interview withFortune.
3. BRAD GARLINGHOUSE, YAHOO
"I've heard our strategy described as spreading peanut butter across the myriad opportunities that continue to evolve in the online world. The result: a thin layer of investment spread across everything we do and thus we focus on nothing in particular. I hate peanut butter. We all should."
-- This was not a resignation letter, but rather the Yahoo senior vice president expounding in 2006 on the company's problems in a strange internal document that has come to be known as the "Peanut Butter Manifesto." Garlinghouse left Yahoo two years later.
I’ve only worked two real jobs in my entire life so I unfortunately have yet to try the whole blaze of glory, but I have some ideas floating around in my head. How did you go out in a blaze of glory?
Women in the UK were surveyed on what they thought are the top inventions for women made in the last century…What do you think it is?
Here is the top ten list of what they actually are:
1 The contraceptive pill 65 per cent
2 The push-up bra 34 per cent
3 The washing machine 34 per cent
4 Tampons 31 per cent
5 Pregnancy tests 25 per cent
6 Disposable diapers 17 per cent
7 Mascara 8 per cent
8 Jeans 7 per cent
9 Fresh prepared meals 6 per cent
10 Contact lenses 4 per cent
Do you agree with the list?
Steve knew contraceptive pills would be in the top ten, but didn’t think it would be number one! Slacker didn’t even think of it as an invention. He was shocked and before he saw it, kept rattling off flat screen TVs! He couldn’t even believe Mascara was the something that came out of a woman’s mouth…
To be honest, I don’t think I would have pegged contraceptive pills as number one but it makes total sense to me. Seriously though, the washing machine as third, no…I would not have placed that there, but I can agree with the rest of the list. Maybe I’d add eye liner or boots.
We all have a few skeletons in our closets, like eating our own boogers or sleeping with a friend’s mother and most of the time they can remain buried, but sometimes they rise to the top and make themselves known…What did you find out about but it was already too late?
I found out that my friend that’s a guy is actually in love with the show One Tree Hill. I personally love that show, but every time I talk to a guy they have nothing but negative things to say about it. To most guys, it’s like getting “Notebooked” by a girl, so I thought it was really strange. Luckily for me I found out before I said yes to dating him.
I have an OPP for you. My husband is really into motorcycles—sport bikes. We have 3 of them in our garage right now. I’m 6 months pregnant and I want them gone before the baby gets here. He says that he is safe when he rides, but I know he has posted videos of himself going like 100 miles per hour. I think it’s taking a dumb risk and I don’t want our daughter to grow up without a dad. I just want him to stop being a boy and act like a man. What do you think guys? Can I make him sell them? What should I do if he doesn’t?
Slacker and Steve know quite a few men that ride motorcycles so they don’t think it’s a boyish thing at all…With that said, Slacker thinks ultimatum’s are a bad thing. Riding a motorcycle at 100mph is a really stupid thing to do and although Steve says going 10mph gives you a risk too, Slacker pointed out it gives a greater risk of injury. Steve doesn’t think just because she’s pregnant, that he has to give up his entire life. He thinks marriage is a business transaction so she’s covering herself first.
Steve asked Slacker what he wanted to give up as a father without being asked to do so. Slacker doesn’t think he is ever going to grow up all the way, but he’s definitely not the same guy he was before Noah was born. He used to never drive with a seatbelt and he drove a lot like Steve does now. On a side note, Slacker’s wife told him he could get a motorcycle if he doubled his life insurance policy, so that isn’t going to happen.
I don’t think you should ever give an ultimatum to someone, not unless you are already willing to let the outcome not affect you. I think Kate should just sit down with her husband and talk with him about it…Maybe convince him to slow down a bit and to be more cautious when he rides. That way she feels better and he doesn’t have to give up what he loves.
Today Stephanie and Doug joined us live on the air for another Great Mate Debate:
Stephanie is having a really hard time. Her cat that she’s had for 17 years passed away last week. Her name is Molly and she’s had her since college, before she even met her husband. She wants to have people over, a catered event, a slideshow and she wants everyone to be able to share their memories of her. She feels like her cat touched so many people’s lives and wants to honor her memory in the right way. Doug thinks this is going a little far. First, he wants to say his wife is the most fantastic woman in the world and he knows he hasn’t been around as long as Molly, but he did love the cat. However, he doesn’t see all his friends getting dressed up in a suit and tie and coming over for a cat! He doubts they would get dress up and go to his funeral. He’s okay with setting up a little place in the backyard, but putting on your Sunday best and getting catering for a cat doesn’t seem ideal.
Slacker loves his dog Mojo more than anything. He just turned 11 years old, but when he goes, he doesn’t think he would put on an elaborate funeral for him. He thinks Steve would punch him in the face if he sent out an e-mail asking him to join them in celebrating Mojo’s life once he passes away…And Steve has plenty of memories with Mojo.
During the conversation, Slacker happened to get a case of the giggles. He didn’t mean to take things to lightly, but couldn’t help but laugh at the Molly slideshow. Steve adding on, was asking what kind of song there would be playing in the background?
With that said, whose side are you on?
I love animals. I cried for weeks when my first dog passed away and although I loved her with all my heart, an elaborate funeral didn’t even cross my mind. I feel awful that it didn’t but I will always hold those memories close, as will the people that shared memories of their own with her.
Keith Urban’s love for his wife Nicole is stronger than his love for his kids. He believes the love he has for his wife has to be stronger in order for them to be beneficial to their kids. Do you live this philosophy?
Steve thinks no woman/mom would ever agree with this because they’ve carried the child for 9 months. Do you beg to differ?
Slacker thinks the strongest bond you have in the universe is with your kids and his wife already knows this. He is madly in love with his wife but it’s like talking about two totally different things to him.
Since I don’t have children yet, I can’t really say whether my mind will change or not but at the moment I would have to agree with Keith Urban. I would think you have to be madly, deeply in love with your significant other and if you can’t be that together than you could never be that way with your kids and they definitely won’t benefit. What do you think?
A survey by WonderBra exposed that 14% of women have used “the girls” to help advance their career. There were also other things like 8% of women say their cleavage has helped them get out of a traffic ticket, And 66% said they wear revealing clothes because it makes them feel sexy and confident.
Slacker and Steve think more like 88% of women use their cleavage to get out of traffic tickets not 8%. They think it depends on what your job is if “the girls” actually help you advance your career. They know women do this all the time to get free stuff.
I love wearing a bra. I think it is part of being put together. I have never used “the girls” to get free drinks or get ahead in my career. I think it is important to have a good bra on and fitting clothes though. I think having good clothes on that fit you well, not so much revealing, you are more confident and are representing yourself well. I think it is important to be tasteful. I see some woman letting everything hang out and that is just wrong, have some respect for yourself.
What did you use your womanly wiles to get?

Yi! I let my wife borrow my company car the other night to run to the grocery store and she got into a fender bender on the way home. Now she's trying to talk me into telling my boss that I was driving when it happened, even though there's a police report stating she was behind the wheel. First, there is a strict company policy forbidding us to allow anyone else to drive our company vehicles- so I'm already in huge trouble. If I try to lie and they found out I will definitely be fired. Is there any way out of this huge mess my wife's terrible driving has caused?
Candy (I Couldn’t think of another fake name)
When there was a big hail storm Slacker’s patio furniture got horribly destroyed, and his neighbors wanted to take pictures and claim it too. Slacker and Steve really don’t think there is any way out because it is fraud. Yet they think maybe he should lie and hopefully not get caught.
I can understand how this could be a hard situation. Overall I think Candy should just tell his boss what happened. While he might get in trouble, I think if he owns up to what happened his boss maybe a little forgiving because he is not trying to cover it up, and telling the truth. On the same note everyone has different bosses so I don’t know how understand his boss will be. If you lie there is always the chance of being caught and being in even more trouble. It will always be on his mind until his boss knows so he might as well get it out there.
What do you think Candy should do?

A journalist in Britain is under fire for writing an essay about being too attractive. Here is what she wrote:
“While I’m no Elle Macpherson, I’m tall, slim, blonde and, so I’m often told, a good-looking woman. I know how lucky I am. But there are downsides to being pretty — the main one being that other women hate me for no other reason than my lovely looks. It is not just jealous wives who have frozen me out of their lives. Insecure female bosses have also barred me from promotions at work. And most poignantly of all, not one girlfriend has ever asked me to be her bridesmaid. You’d think we women would applaud each other for taking pride in our appearances. I work at mine — I don’t drink or smoke, I work out, even when I don’t feel like it, and very rarely succumb to chocolate. Unfortunately women find nothing more annoying than someone else being the most attractive girl in a room. So now I’m 41 and probably one of very few women entering her fifth decade welcoming the decline of my looks. I can’t wait for the wrinkles and the grey hair that will help me blend into the background.”
Slacker and Steve wants to know what the hardest part of being beautiful. Steve knows this happen because when he takes a beautiful woman out all the other women turn on her. Slacker thinks this is stupid and it can’t be that hard to be pretty. He says a lot of people want some disability for people to feel sorry from them.
All I can say is people are weird. It cracks me up listening to people saying how beautiful they are and how they just found this out a few years ago. There are some very beautiful people but this is just them trying to get people to feel sorry for them. Really? Just be happy with who you are and live your life.
Do you think it is hard being beautiful?

In Moscow a car was going crazy in the streets slamming into other cars. When authorities finally got the car to stop there was no person in the car only three dogs! Apparently the guy left his dogs in the car and they decided to go for a joy ride.
Slacker and Steve know a guy that had tickets to the Masters Golf tournament and the dog at the tickets. He got the dog to choke them up and sent a picture to the tournament, told them what happened and they sent him new tickets. Producer Dave’s forgot to take the trash out and his dogs took advantage of the trash left out. Not only was the trash everywhere but they found some laundry too.
I have had two dogs and both of them have been pretty good. My current dog is very curious so I don’t really give her the opportunity to do damage. My experience is with my cousin’s dogs. When her and her family go out of town I watch their dogs. Overall the dogs are really good and very sweet. Yet they must know they are leaving and I am coming because there is always something they destroy. They would chew books to stuff animals, and jumping on the couch. They had a really old dog that was supper sweet and spent most of the day sleeping. Well somehow this dog got out of two, six foot fences and always seems to pull some crazy magic trick to get out of places you would think he could get out of. He even ate a feminine product and they had to get it out quick so it wouldn’t get too big in his stomach. One of their current dogs is pretty fun because if she does something wrong and you get home she is all sad and afraid of you. You can just tell she is guilty.
A survey found that 1/3 of women are secret eaters, and 2/3 of women keep hidden what and where there food stash is from their spouse.
Slacker and Steve want to know why they have to eat in secret. Slacker had a stash he forgot about and after he found it he felt bad and threw it away. Steve thinks it is weird that Slacker threw the candy away and didn’t give it to the family. He thinks Slacker was destroying the evidence.
I really don’t hid food. I really don’t have anything to hide when it comes to food. I would more hide something so someone else wouldn’t eat it not because I’m ashamed I’m eating it. I have a sweet tooth, but I try to make sure I don’t eat too much. My boyfriend did eat my ice cream and I wish I would have hid that. When it comes to secret eating I do eat alone sometimes but not because I am trying to hide it, there is just no one to eat with. I am just as curious as why other women do this.
Are you a secret eater, or do you have a hidden stash?
A survey asked what people most would be embarrassed by if they got caught…73 percent said shoplifting, 65 percent said DUI, 59 percent said throwing trash out the window, 57 percent said cheating on their taxes, and 36 percent said smoking cigarettes.
Slacker and Steve think this crazy that you would be more embarrassed to throw trash out the window than cheating on your taxes. They both hate when people throw their cigarette buds out the window, but Steve doesn’t understand why you would be embarrassed about smoking. They also don’t understand how a DUI would be more embarrassing than shoplifting either.
Personally I think all of these would be embarrassing that is why I don’t do any of them. I hate not having any makeup on or being in lazy clothes and running into someone you know. That happened to me the other day, I was running a few errands and my hair and makeup looked like crap. Then I went to the bank and ran into someone from high school. I was so embarrassed because I always make sure I look descent before I go do stuff and the one time I don’t I run into someone I haven’t seen in forever. I hate getting scared because I get scared so easily and always scream. When people are around it is super embarrassing.
What did you get caught doing that was embarrassing?
My ex and I are quietly battling over our 11 year old daughter's summer wardrobe. He took her shopping for clothes on Tuesday and bought her several low-cut tops that show off her ever-expanding chest. I told him not to buy the clothes, but he did anyways. I think 11 is too young to be wearing low cut tops because they will draw unwanted attention and negative comments. My ex says my daughter should be wearing low cut tops because it will boost her confidence, self esteem and give her a positive self image. Who's right - me or my ex?
Slacker wants to know when is too young, too young? Steve thinks the dad is either being dumb or maybe getting back as his ex wife. Slacker says you want to build your kids self esteem without flaunting them negatively.
I think Anna is right. I think 11 years old is too young to wear low tops. While I think it is important to build the girls self esteem and confidence, I don’t think her showing off her chest is the best way to do it. It is important to teacher her to dress appropriately, and teach her what really is important. Too many girls are dressing inappropriate at a young age and that is just not right.
Who do you think has their daughter’s best intentions in mind?
There is a night club in Alabama that on Friday nights they will let people with food stamps in for five dollars and give them free shots.
Slacker thinks it is inappropriate and how far does this go. He thinks people on food stamps don’t want to want to flaunt it around and he thinks it is weird. Steve thinks it is great.
Personally I think it weird. I don’t think this is a good idea. If money is tight you shouldn’t be going out and wasting it. While I think food stamps is a great program a lot of people abuse it and this is just another way for them to abuse it more.
Women use to keep miscarriages a secret but more and more women are turning to their Facebook “friends” to help them get through a lost pregnancy. It can be a hard thing to go through but turning to social media might be too much information.
Slacker thought miscarriages were a secret thing until they had a miscarriage themselves. Steve thinks you would only tell your immediate family, not all the people you come in contact with needs to know. They both think it is too much information if you put it on facebook. It is a private thing and a hard thing to go through.
I have never had a miscarriage but I can understand how hard it is to go through. Not only are you going through the loss but also you are blaming yourself and it makes things worse. I wouldn’t turn to Facebook for support though. While there are people on Facebook I would tell I would more call them or if it is too hard to talk about maybe write an e-mail. I would only tell my close family and friends thought and not announce it to the world. I have a friend on Facebook that I was friends with a long time ago and don’t even talk to now, and she brought up her miscarriage on Facebook. While I felt bad for her, it was too much information for me. I didn’t know if I should say something or if that would be weird. If other women find comfort in telling their Facebook friends then that is great whatever helps them. We all grieve in different ways.
Do you think it is too much information or a good place for support?
