Yi! My boss wants to play matchmaker and set me up with his son. If I date him, I will most likely receive a promotion and a massive pay raise. My friends and I are split over whether or not I should do it. What do you think? A raise of $35,000 is hard to turn down.
Steve thinks she should do it for the money. Slacker says you shouldn't do it because if it goes bad he is tied to the person who pays your rent.
A party at Colorado State got so out of control, police had to break it up with tear gas and riot gear! What is the craziest party you went to?
Steve grew up on a farm and during his senior year of high school a new girl moved in the area and decided to throw a party to become a part of the “cool” crowd. The “cool” kids showed up, leaked on the stove, took axes and started chopping things up. And the only reason why they went to the party was to prove that the “cool” group decides if you’re in, and that you can’t make yourself seem cool.
What is the craziest party you went to?
The craziest party I went to contained a mob of people in an apartment complex, there was no room to move, it was like a huge concert where everyone was literally crawling on top of each other.
On the highway…in a plane…when you didn’t even know you were pregnant…what bizarre birth story do you have?
A woman gave birth on Sunday on New Jersey's Garden State Parkway. She was rushing to the hospital when she pulled over and delivered. Both mom and daughter are doing well at Monmouth County hospital.
A 44-year-old woman in Michigan went to the hospital with what she thought was a hernia but ended up giving birth… even though doctors told her she couldn't get pregnant. The woman had pains and went to the hospital. After tests they found out she was 40-weeks pregnant and hours later gave birth to a 10 pound baby girl via C-section. The woman had significant abdominal surgery two years ago and was told she wouldn't be able to have kids. Both mom and baby are doing great and are already home.
Janae Colvard had no idea she was pregnant until she gave birth. She went to a Gilbert, Arizona medical center before a nurse placed her in a wheelchair because she thought she had kidney stones. Janae stood up because she thought she had “an accident,” and then noticed her baby’s head crowning. The baby was delivered successfully.
Slacker does not understand how women can gain the weight of a child, and not know. There are quite a few pregnant women around the office, and the child kicking is visible. How do you not notice gaining weight, or the kid kicking, or Aunt Flow’s monthly visit?
The show “I Didn’t Know I was Pregnant” is probably the scariest, most bizarre show. I cannot believe that not knowing actually happens, unless the show is just an urban legend.
Yi! I found my 15-year-old daughter’s diary and I read it. I know it wasn’t the right thing to do but I did it and I don’t like what I saw. She wrote about being pressured to do drugs after school and getting more physical with her boyfriend. I feel like I need to talk to her about these situations, but I clearly can’t start the conversation by telling her I violated her privacy and read her diary. Ignorance is bliss, but how do you handle it when you know things about your child that you’re not ‘supposed’ to…but need to do something about it?
Slacker knows that when his kids are older he will be going through the exact same thing. Parents know that they shouldn’t snoop and trust their kids to make the right decisions, although Slacker is convinced that he will be the parent that goes though all of the technology and social media his kids are involved with. You have to trust your kid, up until the point they break your trust and are caught red handed. Ultimately in the end Slacker and Steve know that if the kids are under the parents roof they have the right to access valuable information that might be hiding in that room of theirs.
What advice do you have for Elaine?
I think Elaine should take this one concern at a time. Talk about the relations or drugs, and just casually say I saw this thing about teens and relations or drugs and Elaine should state how she feels, and tell her that she would be super disappointed if she ever found out that her daughter was doing those things. Kids never want to disappoint their parents and so hearing those words might sway her to refrain as she is now.
Slacker had someone try to pass an urban legend by him as a true story…and he called them out on it!
Slacker’s friend told him that he threw a surprise party for his wife; everyone was waiting for her in the living room. They heard her come in set down her stuff, and after a few minutes they send someone into the kitchen to see what is going on. And the wife is caught on the floor with the dog and peanut butter, and she was never seen or heard from again, because she was so embarrassed… This weekend Slacker was hanging out with friends and one told him the same story! Steve is guilty of falling for that chocolate milk is the extra bloody milk from the dairy farms.
What urban legend have you fallen for? What urban legend do you still believe?
When I was a child the urban legend that I believed, and participated in during sleepovers was “Bloody Mary” and “Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board”.
Awkward by Slacker and Steve,posted Apr 26 2013 5:00PM
There's a story of a guy's one-night stand going around. He lives in Boston and hooked up with a girl at her house on a Thursday night. The following day was the Boston Marathon bombing and he got locked down in the random girl's house all day! Talk about awkward! We also know a girl that once hooked up with a cop. A few days later she was pulled over and it was the guy she had the one-night fling with.
It doesn't have to be a one-night stand story... what was the most awkward moment in your life?
Candy came on the air to tell us her OPP today...with voice disguiser. Her husband is super controlling. She's pretty sure he has a GPS tracker on her car or phone. He monitors all the money she spends. She's not allowed to go out without him. She's had enough and she is thinking of sneaking away this weekend...but she doesn't know how. She doesn't have any family in town or anywhere to run to.
How does she get away if he knows where she is all the time and she has no money?
Hawaiian Tropic's beauty pageant days are over. The brand announced it is retiring their famous bikini contests, which started back in 1983. Say goodbye to Miss Hawaiian Tropic. Why…? The bikini contest wasn't going over well with female customers. Women make up 70 percent of the brand's users, so that was a problem. The company decided to reinvent the product "to appeal to today's Hawaiian Tropic women."
Slacker wants Pringle pizza sticks, he would drive hours to find them and even clean them out when he did find them. Steve loved the child-proof lighters, but all of his friends would take them. Lil D wants dunkaroos back!
What fad do you want to bring back?
Mullets and Fanny packs…. Just kidding about the mullets but fanny packs for sure.
According to a new survey, the average person breaks the law 260 times a year . . . or five times a week. The most common laws we break are jaywalking . . . taking ketchup packets from restaurants . . . and taking supplies from work.
Slacker and Steve both speed…occasionally…and Slacker also takes paper from the office, to do office work… along with jaywalking one time he was even hit! And ketchup or even napkins from restaurants are always taken home by Slacker.
What law have you broken lately?
I recently took a to-go order to my friends’ house and noticed that there wasn’t any disposable silverware included so I stopped off at a fast food place and grabbed some…
Chelsea was in a serious relationship that ended about a year ago and there were no relations the entire last year that they were together. She didn’t feel wanted and was ready to get back into the dating scene. Chelsea thought it would be easy and that she would find a great guy and her needs would be met right away, but that hasn’t been the case. It’s been a year of going out and dating and she has got absolutely nothing. Yeah, 2 years and no relations. Chelsea is 27 years old and just wants to feel desirable for once. She is not a bad looking girl— just wants the situation and the person to be right. Some of her friends have told her that she need to lower her standards and just go out and get crazy one night. Others say that Chelsea needs to keep looking and eventually she will find the right man.
Slacker and Steve think that Chelsea just needs a dude now!! Not the right man, right now. If she wanted it she could have had it. They think that she just needs to find a guy for now and keep looking for the right man, she is getting dates, and so what else can she do. “Should she continue her search for the unicorn or just settle for an average horse…” – Slacker
What do you guys think Chelsea should do?
Chelsea should do whatever she wants…if her needs are taking over then maybe Mr. Right Now is appropriate, but if she is fine waiting for a great guy then Mr. Right takes time.
Bobby’s grandmother passed away and left each of the grandchildren a nice little inheritance. Bobby says that he and his wife Robin are set financially and don’t need the money. He wants to give his portion of grandma’s money to his brother, James, who is struggling. Robin says that there is no way they are giving the money to James. He is a lazy person that can’t hold a job and by giving him the money they are telling him that is okay and someone will always bail him out. Plus, she says they are not “set financially.” She says they have enough to pay their bills every month but that’s about it.
Slacker and Steve think that both deserved the money. Bobby and Robin need a vacation and to become more financially set. On the other hand James also deserves a bigger boost of cash to really help him not struggle so much.
Whose side are you on?
I think that Bobby and Robin should give James half and keep the other half for them. Bobby and Robin should go on a nice vacation and then invest the rest, and probably suggest that James also invest his extra found cash.
Today is National Administrative Professionals Day. According to an FTD survey, 53% of people believe administrative professionals are the ones who run their offices and run them well. But, we wanna know what dirt you have on your boss!
Neither Slacker nor Steve divulged any of their own dirt, but there’s a got to be some somewhere…
Have you ever been hit on by your boss? Or have you ever flirted to get a leg up?
I’ve never flirted with my boss (any boss) for special attention or a promotion, but, don’t even get me started on my boss’ behavior towards employees at my paying job. If I said anymore I’m sure he’d see it and I’d be fired or I’d ruin the entire company… see, I’ve already said too much.
DIVA by Slacker And Steve,posted Apr 24 2013 5:31PM
They think they deserve the world... They demand that everyone fall at their feet... They expect to be treated like royalty... You know the kind. We're talking divas!
According to RADAR online, Nicki Minaj was consistently late to American Idol tapings pissing off the crew and contestants. She wouldn’t allow her picture to be taken with or without fans. Total diva.
Resse Witherspoon was recently arrested for disorderly conduct when she pulled the whole, “do you know who I am”, while her husband was being tested on his sobriety. Umm, Diva!
Slacker never drops the “don’t you know who I am” because he knows they don’t. Slacker isn’t a diva, he’s a queen bee, because he has to be the queen of something or another; however, he won’t complain about it if it’s wrong, he’ll just stop talking to you.
How ridiculous is the diva you know?
I’m around a lot of young musicians on a day to day basis, but I have yet to meet one who’s an extreme diva with a capital D. I just found something to check of my bucket list, because I can’t go through my entire career and not deal with a diva; that’s unheard of in the music industry.
“Yi guys, love listening to the show. I have a serious problem and I don't know if I'm overplaying it or not. My ex, which I have the most amazing 2 1/2 year old daughter with, has been pushy trying to find a new boyfriend and has introduced my baby to a few different men. These “relationships” as she calls them only last for a few weeks. Well, this new boyfriend that she has been seeing for two months has posted facebook pics of my daughter, and the comment states that she is “daddy's little girl,” implying that he is my baby's dad. In my eyes this is wrong and my ex is showing that it is OK for my daughter to have these types of relationships. I confronted my ex about how angry this made me and the total lack of respect for me being the father, and the reply I got is that he has been around. I also found out she has my daughter calling him dad, which any sane person should know that is not ok. I would never have a girlfriend for 2 months and tell my baby this is mom. This is all really hard for me because I work over the road with my own business, so when I try to be there for my kid I get the same no I can't see her and then get blamed for not being there. Please help I don't know what to do. There is no reasoning with my ex. Am I acting stupid making this a big deal when it’s not?
Thank you guys so much
Slacker and Steve both fear for what this type of behavior could do to the daughter just because of how inappropriate and confusing it is. Slacker thinks that the mother is doing this to push Zach away and it makes his skin crawl… He can’t imagine his daughter looking up at another man and calling him “daddy.”
What advice do you have?
I think it’s extremely inappropriate because having this young child call everybody “daddy” is confusing and simply something a parent shouldn’t do. It’s selfish to try and replace your ex-husband and father of your child by blatantly disrespecting the situation by having her call some boyfriend “dad”… it’s especially unfair to the daughter.
California police arrested a man after he got drunk, stripped naked, and knocked on his neighbor's door proclaiming that he was there to have sex with her! That's one way to do it.
Steve never gets naked… but Slacker likes to wander around his house sans clothes all the time given that the sun is out and perfectly angled at the right time of day because the glare acts as the perfect reflector so he doesn’t have to close his blinds. We’re not sure if his theory is really that sound though…
What are your naked neighbor stories?
I have never seen any of my neighbors naked. I’m actually surprised by this because I live in a high rise and my bedroom window faces another high rise with lots of big windows and people. And just for the record, I have never been the naked neighbor… maybe. I’m an open blind kind of person… sooo
We got a message from a woman that said she thinks the Boston Marathon bomber (we're not saying his name here) is super hot. She wants to know, is it wrong that she's attracted to him?
The guys wanted to remind everyone that this woman is not condoning what her did. Steve says you can separate physical appearance from the acts he committed. Slacker brought up Scott Peterson as an example. Women send him their underwear in jail...and he killed his wife! He tried to think of an example of a female criminal he found attractive, but he couldn't.
Have you ever found yourself attracted to someone you shouldn't be attracted to?
Dentist by Slacker and Steve,posted Apr 23 2013 5:13PM
It can be one of the scariest places on the planet…but we all have to go there…the dentist! We heard a story of a guy that was running a dentist office out of his car. His tools were all moldy, too! Disgusting!
Slacker says he remembers getting his wisdom teeth out. He was knocked out, but he still gets flashbacks of the dentist sitting on top of him yanking the teeth out of his head. He felt violated when he woke up. Steve says that he knows Slacker calls ahead to make sure the dentist has nitrous available. Slacker says he does it because it is uncomfortable to sit there for 3 hours with someone else's hands in your mouth. He'd rather see purple unicorns while getting worked on.
Yi! I’m fed up with my mother and father-in-law and I need some advice. My husband and I have a very specific way that we want to raise our kids and his parents constantly undermine us. If we’re at grandma and grandpa’s and we tell the kids they can’t have sugar, grandma will say “grandparents are supposed to fill their grandkids with sugar and send them home,” and then she sneaks them cookies. If we tell them they can’t watch a TV show, grandpa will take them into the other room and we find them watching it. That’s just a couple examples of the countless things they do. We’ve asked them to stop and respect our parenting decisions, but they have the mindset that they are just being how grandparents are supposed to be. What do I have to do to get them to stop?
Slacker thinks that maybe Amanda should stop taking her kids to see the grandparents until they can respect her parenting techniques. Steve says that this is always the way it has been and it's the right of grandparents to let their grandkids get away with more. Slacker also said that his parents do this to him. They feel like they have already raised 4 kids, so now they should get to enjoy the grandkids.
How does Amanda put an end to grandma & grandpa giving the kids everything they want?
Inventions by Slacker and Steve,posted Apr 23 2013 3:04PM
A company has stolen one of Slacker’s ideas for the greatest inventions ever…he came up with the brilliant idea of selling cereal-flavored milk. Cow Wow Cereal Milk is a line of milk that tastes like it's already had cereal marinating in it. Los Angeles-based Cow Wow is selling cereal-flavored milk in convenient 8-ounce boxes. The milk comes in six flavors, all named after cartoon cows. They are made with 100-percent organic, contain between 170-175 calories depending on the flavor of your choice, lowfat milk with 6 grams of added sugar, and have a one-year shelf life.
We’ve all heard about those celebrity marriages that are over before they even really begin, but we want to know if that really happens in real life!
Slacker was with his first wife collectively 4 years, but had a super short marriage lasting about 9 months. They want to know if anyone has pulled the Brittany Vegas wedding… Slacker wants to know how you go from dreamy-eyed and wanting to spend the rest of your life with someone to, divorce and not wanting to be with them ever.
What is the shortest marriage you have heard about?
A man from Austin, Texas raced in the Boston Marathon and figures he crossed the finish line about 30 seconds before the first bomb went off. His wife got hit with shrapnel but escaped serious injury.
Joe Berti and wife returned to Texas on Tuesday, and the next night, as he drove home from a meeting in Dallas on I-35, Joe's car got rocked by the explosion of the fertilizer plant in West, Texas. He survived that, too, even pulling over to snap a photo of the plume—as debris hit his car. Joe says, "People keep saying, 'Don't you feel unlucky?' and I was actually the opposite—saying not only do I not feel unlucky, but I feel blessed that my wife could be 10 yards from the explosion and not have a scratch."
Slacker and Steve are in awe about Joe, and what all he has recently experienced.
What is your “You Wouldn’t Believe Me If I Told You” story?
A family friend of ours has his favorite ski picture of himself up at his condo…He started dating a women one weekend they were together at the condo, and she notices the picture of him. Little did both of them know it was the first picture of them together. While he was in the front all smiles, she photo bombed the picture with her ski poles attached to her head like antennas.
Betsy is a young divorcée and has started dating an amazing man. She’s pretty sure he is the one but I haven’t been entirely honest with him. Betsy’s first marriage ended because she was unfaithful and hasn’t told him that. She was young and stupid at the time and now knows it was wrong. Betsy has matured since then and now knows exactly what she wants out of a relationship—and he is it.
Slacker is really torn on today’s OPP; part of him says yes, and the other part says no you don’t. Steve on the other hand is against her telling him the truth, he believes that he doesn’t need to hear it; you don’t have to tell him everything about your past.
Should Betsy tell him why her first marriage ended? She is worried if she doesn’t come clean it could come back to bite her in the butt. But Betsy also doesn’t want him to think differently about her because she was a different person then. What advice do you have?
This is a double edge sword…but ultimately she should tell him. If she thinks he is the one then he should know the truth about her past.
Lazy by Slacker And Steve,posted Apr 22 2013 3:26PM
Slacker and Steve were planning on playing cards this weekend, but when they got there the escalator was broken and Steve didn’t want to walk up all the stairs... They had been planning this for a week and the entire plan fell apart because of a broken escalator.
Steve didn’t want to walk up the ‘9 flights of stairs’ because he didn’t want to be the sweaty guy at the poker table, and on top of all of that walking ALL of those stairs… to smoke would just be too much. Slacker confessed to watching TV and not getting the remote because “it was too far away”…so he ended up watching the commercials.
When have you been super lazy?
I was too lazy to get out of bed, go down stairs, and get water…So I called my friend and made her get out of bed, get water, and bring it to be up-stairs.
Your drunk friend steals a cop car, your kid ran into the highway or maybe your husband buys a $500 knife set at the mall!
Slacker's daughter is totally in the princess stage. Then, the conversation strays to how hot the princess characters are...Slacker hints that he always buys two of everything princess. One for the daughter and one for daddy...Which leads to Steve finally looking brilliant for his awesome collection of action figures. Slacker points out that most of Steve's collection is male action figures, so...
Anyway, they left Slacker alone for a minute and ordered every single dvd that had a princess in it. Here's what happens when daddy's had a few glasses of wine and mommy leaves the room! Not only that, he bought a converter to convert the dvd's to itunes. So 15k and 2 weeks later, his wife is like, "WTF"?
Slacker is a pleaser by nature. Steve and Lil D were having a conversation about Apple TV and BOOM, Slacker buys one for each of them...
What happened when you turned your head for one second?
The only thing that has ever happened to me when I turned my head for one second was pretty minor and harmless. I was paying bills online and had my daughter in the wind up swing. One minute she was in the swing, the next minute she was face down on the floor. She had somehow managed to slip out of the swing seat and just casually plant herself on the floor. No harm, no foul. Not even a peep of discomfort from her either! I told you it was harmless.
If you’re paying 50% of the rent, you should get 50% say about what goes on in the house…right? Today’s OPP thinks so and she needs your help telling her roommate to put her family on the streets so she can be comfortable in her own home.
Yi guys! I’m having an issue with my roommate and I need some help. Her brother has a pretty bad drug problem that he is trying to kick and she wants him to stay with us for a while to keep him away from the scene. I know for a fact that he has stolen from family members to pay for drugs in the past and he has at least one violent crime on his record. She says that he has been clean for a few weeks now and she just wants to protect him from falling back into old habits. She also says it’s her brother and she has to protect him any way she can. I know he has no self-control and I don’t want him in my house. What if he relapses and starts stealing our stuff? What if he tries to (r-word) or accost me in some drug induced craze? How do I get her to understand it’s not a good idea to have him in the house?
Steve suggests locks on the bedroom, but that doesn't solve the items in the common areas from being stolen, should this guy feel the need for fast cash. Tough call!
Slacker puts it out there that Brianna is trying to live the American dream and now this issue might jeopardize that dream. He also feels that it would be tough to say no to a family member in need.
The guys are stuck on this fence with this one...Who trumps who here?
What advice do you have?
If the roommate with the brother has the money for her half of her current bills, she should push the brother to get a job and move in with him on her own. Then they can share a place and work it out if things go sour. There's no need to get a third and innocent party involved. She wants to be helpful? Challenge the roommate and the brother to take responsibilty and be accountable for his recovery. Just sayin'!
PDA by Slacker and Steve,posted Apr 19 2013 3:25PM
It's FrYiiiiiiiii - Day!
3 little letters than divide people. P.D.A. Some people, like Slacker, are ALL for it... others, like Steve, think it’s DISGUSTING!!
PDA PET PEEVES
The Frisky did a poll asking what kind of PDA was the most irritating. Though sitting on each other's laps and feeding each other were strong contenders, overhearing baby talk and seeing a couple French kissing took the top spots.
Just Asking ... Does PDA annoy you? If so, what is the most offensive kind? Are you into PDA yourself? What do you and your partner do in public? Are there any lines you won't cross? If you're in a relationship, does one of you like PDA and one of you hate it? What problems does that cause?
PDA CAN RUIN A RELATIONSHIP
More than a quarter of women in a study say they are too embarrassed to cuddle or even hold hands in public.
One in ten women would consider breaking up with a man who was too affectionate in front of other people.
Women don't make an exception on Valentine's Day, either.
Two thirds of those surveyed said they would not be any more affectionate to their partner on February 14th than on any other day.
The survey of 2,000 people was conducted by MSN, and also found that 28 percent of the responders were also uncomfortable around other couples' public displays of affection.
The least acceptable forms of public displays of affection are heavy petting, kissing with tongues, and bottom slapping.
Slacker is still astounded that while still being single, Steve doesn't get the PDA thing.
Steve does do it a little, but not for the same reason other people do it! He believes that most couples do it to get recognized. Like "Look at us, we're makin' out!"
Slacker reminds Steve of the times when they go out to the bars and get a shot or, in Steve's case a Washington Apple, does Steve raise his glass with everyone else or does he look straight ahead and do the shot on his own? Hell No! He clanks glasses and participates in the celebration, of course. Slacker informs him that this is a form of PDA. GUILTY!
Steve doesn't care if Slacker kisses his wife in public. But, does Slacker close his eyes or leave them open? Steve insists he leaves them open so he can see who is looking! He also calls out Slacker for being a butt grabber. Slacker can't tell if Steve leaves his eyes open, because the last time he saw Steve kiss a girl, Steve had his shades on...
Slacker has no problem sitting on the same side of the booth as his wife. Steve says it annoys all the food service people in world with this simple gesture. Slacker likes spending time with his wife. Simple as that!
Which side are you on?
I'm a huga fan of PDA! The fact that anyone would be seen with me, makes it that more irresistable to have fun with. If ya got it, flaunt it!

His girlfriend wants to get engaged. He’s not quite ready yet and wants to get a promise ring to hold her over. Will that work or is it a cop out?
Slacker and Steve, don’t think that this is a good idea. If he isn’t ready she shouldn’t push him, but maybe he needs the push and they have been dating for years! Slacker and Steve have been playing devil’s advocate for today’s OPP.
What do you think?
If they are in a committed relationship and know that they want to spend the rest of their lives together then she shouldn’t push an engagement if he isn’t ready. In the long run it sounds like he wants to be with her; and that’s all that should matter, and not a ring on the finger.
Martin and Alana have an 8-year-old son. He has asked a few times to sleep over at a friend’s house. Martin is cool with it…he had sleepovers with friends all the time as a kid. Alana says the world isn’t what it was when they were growing up. She essentially wants to run background checks on the other parents before even thinking about letting their son stay over.
Slacker and Steve see the pros and cons to this situation. They did not say whether or not it was a good or bad idea. Sure kids should have sleepovers, but who knows at what age, and it is true the world is not what it used to be and that making sure the parents are responsible is a big factor.
Whose side are you on?
Maybe they should have the other kids spend the night there, and if all goes well he can sleep over there. They could also meet the parents and take the kids to dinner where they could get to know each other.
It's in every household and has injured any girl that has ever used it... we're talking curling irons and the dangers they possess.
Slacker and Steve both know someone who actually sat on a curling iron. Slacker’s wife leaves her curling iron plugged in and on all the time. Slacker tried to cover up a giant hickey by burning his neck with a curling iron so his parents wouldn’t find out.
Have you ever been injured by a curling iron?
I’ve injured myself more often with my flat iron. I’ve done the classic clamping down on the ear with both hot plates followed by a nice ear scab. It’s hard being a girl.
Swallowed by Slacker and Steve,posted Apr 17 2013 5:31PM
New Hampshire man, Ron Perley, was arrested or stealing and swallowing a diamond ring. Police got a search warrant, brought him to the hospital, and X-rayed him… And there it was! A 14-karat, white-gold ring with diamonds was inside of him.
Slacker and Steve have never swallowed anything… or so they say.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever swallowed?
I’ve never swallowed anything unusual. My sister once stuck some beans up her nose, but that’s not the same thing is it?
“Yi! I was at lunch with a few mommy friends the other day and I said something that has totally ruffled my friends’ feathers. They were all talking about how hard being a parent is and after a couple glasses of wine, I admitted that sometimes I wish I’d never had kids. All my friends went totally silent and now one of them isn’t even returning my calls.
What should I do about this? Should I apologize? I obviously love my kids!
Both Slacker and Steve wanted to get Sarabeth some serious advice- not simply rip her apart for feeling this way. Steve thinks that other moms also feel this way but will refuse to admit it because there isn’t a mother out there who ever wants to feel like a “bad mom” and admitting that you sometimes regret having your kids will, in that mom’s eyes, equate to being a bad parent.
What advice do you have?
I’m not a mother so I don’t really have any words of wisdom for Sarabeth, but what I can do is understand that she’s human and she’s feeling a human emotion. Humans regret making certain decisions no matter how large. It’s a tough situation because she says she loves her children, but what I believe she’s feeling is completely overwhelmed and that stress is manifesting itself in the form of regret.
Bad Dates by Slacker And Steve,posted Apr 17 2013 3:41PM
Dating... in order to find the right person it's just something you gotta do no matter how painful it is to suffer through the bad ones. We’ve got a list of what you should and shouldn’t do on a first date:
10 First Date Do's & Don'ts from yourtango.com
1. Do show up on time. Being late is rude and a major turn-off. First impressions count.
2. Do look your best. This shows your date you've actually put some effort in your appearance. The neater the better, so dress to impress.
3. Do show your smile. Don't be afraid to show off those pearly whites. A great smile can light up a room.
4. Do be courteous. Being polite and well-mannered shows your consideration for others.
5. Do show him/her you're listening. Always pay attention to what your date is saying. This shows you are interested in the person sitting across from you.
6. Do give him/her compliments. Giving praise is very positive and welcomed. It's a great boost for morale
7. Don't be something you're not. Don't be fake or put on an act. Be yourself; the best version of you.
8. Don't text others during the date. Texting while on a date is a big "no-no"! It's just plain rude.
9. Don't talk about your ex. No one wants to spend the whole date talking about your relationship disasters. Leave the past in the past and get to know the person in front of you.
10. Don't be rude to the wait staff. This is a sure-fire way to lose your date's interest. Treat the wait staff with respect and tip accordingly.
Slacker can’t stand when people are either late for a date or annoyingly early. Just be on time! Steve says that guys should just show up and be quiet; let the girl do all the talking so you don’t end up talking about yourself.
What are your first date stories?
I wouldn’t necessarily call it a first date (it was something, but who really knows), but I was taken to a strip club. I don’t really need to say anything else but it was definitely awkward beyond belief.
In a recent memoir written by Volleyball star Gabrielle Reece, she claims, “To truly be feminine means being soft, receptive, and – look out, here it comes – submissive.”
Needless to say, this has ruffled the feathers of many people. Reece went on the Today show to defend her position. She said, “I think because women have the ability to set the tone, that the ultimate strength and showing real power, I believe, is creating that environment. I think it’s a sign of strength.’’
Slacker said that for a long time he only had one opinion of his mom because of the way his dad was raised. He said is dad was very rural and had the mindset that women belonged in the kitchen, and because of that Slacker thought his mom was kind of weak. Slacker also pointed out the fact that when the cultural mindset was women belonged in the house and should be submissive to their husbands, marriages lasted longer. He’s not saying he agrees with it, but that’s how it was. Steve said he doesn’t agree that being submissive would work in today’s society.
Do you agree with Reece’s statement? Do you think she’s crazy?
Bad things sometimes happen during the most wonderful time of our lives…relations! Slacker and Steve had some friends that were getting romantic in the living room. The dude thought he would try to be romantic and play a scene out of a steamy novel. He went to pick his wife up to carry her to the bedroom, tripped, and dropped her through their glass coffee table! His first instinct was not to grab her and rush her to the hospital, but instead to figure out a backstory of how she got hurt to tell the emergency room!
Whether it was an injury or major destruction…what kind of damage did you do while doing the deed?
Kevin joined us live on the air to share his OPP today. He has been married about 5 years. He's worried that he's starting to lose his wife. She seems to be more distant and more easily annoyed with everything he does. He has really tried to up his game by doing all of the romantic stuff...candles when she comes home, massages, etc. Nothing seems to be working and he doesn’t want to let his wife slip away.
Slacker feels that Kevin might have set the bar to high and he used the example of foot massages. If Kevin gives her a foot massage every night, it becomes the norm instead of something that wows her. If you eat the same food every day, no matter how delicious it is, it will eventually become bland. Slacker also had to ask if Kevin thought his wife was having an affair, which he didn’t. Steve says the fact that Kevin wants to save his marriage would normally make a woman’s heart melt.
What do you think Kevin should do to win his wife back?
Lil D is expecting his first child any day now. Over the weekend, he and his wife had a baby shower…their second baby shower! Slacker thinks that having two baby showers is greedy because some people were invited to both and had to buy presents for both. He thinks asking people to buy you things because you’re expecting a child is ridiculous!
Slacker and Steve also asked Lil D if he would have another shower if they had a second child. Lil D said he definitely would if the kids were more than two years apart and different genders.
Do you think that it is greedy of Lil D to have more than one baby shower?
When it comes to tipping Steve is very generous but the other day he ran into a situation that was a little awkward. Slacker and Steve were out at a bar/restaurant style place, and when they were seated, Steve recognized their server as a girl that he used to date. Things didn’t end well between them so Steve had to explain the situation to Slacker. She gave them good service but Steve didn’t want to leave her a good tip because of the way things ended.
Slacker said that he hates when he goes out to eat and he knows the server. If the service is horrible, you still have to leave them a good tip because you know them! In the end, Steve did the exact opposite of what he initially wanted to do. Instead of stiffing her, he left a huge tip to show her that he was better off without her.
What would you have done if you were Steve? Do you think it is ever okay to stiff a server?
Drive him to a sketchy neighborhood so he could get drugs…asked you to join her in the bedroom…marry them so they could stay in the country…sometimes the person you work for can ask you to do some pretty unusual stuff!
Slacker was once part of a cover-up. His boss had embezzled funds but he told Slacker that he lost the bank bags. The boss came up with a scheme to have Slacker pull money out of the drawer to make up the difference in the deposit. Slacker found out that he was part of the plan when the boss got caught and Slacker almost got fired! Steve has heard of someone that asked an employee to be a surrogate from them.
I once had a boss ask me to water his plants while he was out of town. When I went by to get the rundown of what I was to do, I found out that he wanted me to water his grow operation! I ended up telling him that I was busy and couldn't help him out.
What is the craziest request your boss has ever made of you?
My fiancé is really stressed about every cost associated with our wedding and he wants to cut back in any way that we can. Since we are paying for everything ourselves, I have no problem going cheap where we can. One of the ways he really thinks we can save money is by telling all of our single friends and family that they can’t bring a guest to the wedding. I really disagree with him on that idea. It is supposed to be a day that we share with all of the people we are closest to and I don’t think a lot of people will come if they can’t bring someone with them. The other thing he’s not thinking about is the fact that he’s a few years older than me so nearly all of his friends are married and most of my girlfriends are still single. I want to spend my day with all of my friends and I want them to have a good time. Any way I can change my fiancé’s mind?
Slacker has had two weddings and he thinks they are kind of stupid. He definitely thinks that it is a little unfair that all of the grooms friends are married and hers are not, but he doesn’t understand why Candy would want her girlfriend’s flavor of the month at her special day. While Steve typically avoids weddings, he likes the idea. He thinks it is a good way to get single people to mingle together at a wedding.
Do you think it’s a good idea to not let a single person have a +1 at a wedding? Would you go to a wedding if you were single and couldn’t bring a guest?
Sometimes men do really manly things…other times, not so much! Over the weekend, we had a lot of things to do. We parked the car in the middle of all of the different events we had…and we used a pedicab to get from place to place. We basically spent 4 hours going from place to place and Slacker says that by not exerting physical effort to get around we burned our man cards. Except when we used the pedicab to get to the strip club! Steve lost his man card when he winced when a shot of tequila was ordered. Both Slacker and Steve agreed I earned my man card this weekend when I turned down tickets to a major sporting event so I could attend a birthing class.
What did your man do over the weekend to earn his man card…or burn it?
Lynn Paradis is suing her former lover for compensation. The Montreal woman quit her job 25 years ago to become a mistress. Her lover bought her a condo and paid her bills. Lynn says she gave up her life and has no job, work experience or pension. She wants $1 million because her lover's financial support made her economically dependent on him. Lawyer Linda Hammerschmid says, "She is obviously the author of her own demise because she didn't find out her rights before they enter into these types of situations. Don't come back 25 years later and complain that you didn't and now you should be rewarded for being stupid."
Do you think she deserves the money?

Today’s OPP lost a ton of weight and got a makeover and now she is being pursued by a guy…you may be saying, “Good for her,” but when you hear who the guy is you may want to tell her to run! She ran into her ex-boyfriend the other day and almost didn't recognize her since she lost so much weight! She said he would always comment on how great other girls looked and he emailed her to see if they could get together!
“Yi! I saw my ex-boyfriend over the weekend for the first time in a year. He almost didn't recognize me because I've lost a ton of weight and basically had an extreme makeover. A year ago, he would stare at other girls and make comments about how great they looked. Now, the tide has turned as he emailed me yesterday about getting together again. Should I give him another chance or cast his superficial self to the side of the road? - Nicki”
Slacker says to just move on, the ex is shallow and really doesn’t value her. He believes that once you break up with someone you only remember the good things and the bad things go away. Steve thinks she kind of wants revenge, to lure him back only to break his heart.
What should she do?

We’re a day behind on Great Mate Debate… Today’s has to do with the age old question: Does size really matter? Two newlyweds, Mike and Danielle want to use some of their wedding money to decorate their house. He wants to build a home theater system, equipped with a 70'' TV and surround sound. While she wants to keep things small and simple with a smaller, more economical TV.
“Mike and Danielle are newlyweds. They are trying to use some of the wedding money to decorate and update their house. Mike is really into movies and wants to build a home theater and get a big 70” TV, along with captain chairs, stadium seating and surround sound. Danielle thinks that a TV that big is ridiculous. She says they have a smaller TV now and they’ve done just fine with that. With the money they save from not having a huge TV, she thinks that they should put it back into the house. She doesn’t want to spend their wedding money on something that outrageous.”
Slacker believes Danielle is in the right here, Mike is trying to justify something a bit ridiculous and the reason is because Danielle already lets him have DVD’s ,HD DVD’s and Blue ray along have over 6 remotes just for their TV right now. She feels adding more gadgets won’t stop him asking for more in the long run.
Who's more justified with this?

Every couple has mastered the art of the silent and secret signals... "it's time to leave this awkward party, honey"; there's a signal for that. "You're too drunk, it's time to leave"; there's definitely a signal for that. What are your secret signals?
Slacker used “have you tried the guacamole” when he’s with his wife and he wants to leave. Steve used to make secret noises when he and his lady friend were in the mood.
What are your secret signals?
I’m pretty good at the secret signals, but I usually use my face or eyes to get my point across as opposed to my hands. I work in a night club so by the end of the night it’s hard to get anything done because of the effects of the liquid courage so it’s handy to be able to silently communicate with security and clear the crowd.
A Florida child fell 7 stories from her bedroom window and lived… she’s in critical condition, but alive nonetheless! A car accident, animal attack, or freak accident... we wanna hear your stories of survival!
Steve has survived the “my husband is home” encounters through nothing but good luck and good timing.
Why should you not be alive?
I have stories that are more along the lines of stories of non-life threatening stupidity; none of survival.
“Yi! My husband just discovered I was having an affair. We're trying to work things out, but he says I'm 100% to blame. I completely disagree and I think he's partly to blame. I cheated because he never spends time with me and refused to address issues in our marriage. I needed someone to turn to because he wasn’t there. He’s just as much to blame as me, right?
Although Slacker says she’s 100% to blame, Slacker also believes that the blame could be put somewhat on the husband. He thinks the blame could be 80/20 because there are certain factors on the husband’s part that could have lead her to go find solace in someone else’s company. Steve thinks the blame should be an evenly cut 50/50.
What advice do you have?
I understand that her husband may have neglected his wife on an emotional level, but she’s the one who went out and cheated. She can’t funnel her guilt and throw it on him because there are other ways of getting what you need that don’t result in going outside of your marriage. In the end, her husband didn’t make her do anything and she needs to face her guilt.
Prom by Slacker And Steve,posted Apr 10 2013 3:40PM
It’s that time of year… Limos, dresses, boutonnières and corsages. Yep, it’s time for prom and all that comes with it: expensive dinners, hideous prom dresses, and hours of pre-prom planning… Some schools have gone as far as to demand that students wear “gender appropriate” attire during this prom season.
Slacker said that he spent about $1,000 on his senior prom, with the date and the dinner and the whole shebang. Steve went the traditional route and did the dirty with his date on his prom night.
What are your best prom stories?
My senior prom was pretty uneventful. I didn’t have a date (had you seen the pool of boys at my school you wouldn’t have needed one either) and I got ready in a church. The getting ready was the best part… lots of girl talk, eating, and gossip (typical)… but the dance was pretty pointless. My school was more into sports so we didn’t really take dances seriously.
As you have all probably figured out, Lil D's wife is pregnant. But he has a small problem with that....he refuses to have sex with her because she is pregnant. He just can't get into it while shes pregnant and is turned off when he would feel the baby kick.
When you find out the person you’re in a relationship with has done you wrong, there’s only one thing you can do…get revenge!
WOMAN GETS HER REVENGE BY SPRAY-PAINTING 'CHEATER' AND 'LIAR' ACROSS HER BOYFRIEND'S CAR
A woman got revenge on her cheating boyfriend by spray-painting "cheater" and "liar" across his car.
The woman also punctured all four tires on the vehicle and smashed the rear window as part of her revenge. No word if the woman was arrested for causing the damage.
Slacker mentioned how popular revenge sites have started popping up on the website.
Destroy their car? Burn their clothes? How did you get your Relationship Revenge?

Opening up to your parents can be a liberating life experience…but it can also be one of the hardest things you ever have to do. Today’s OPP is struggling with the decision of having the talk with her parents over religion. Mary, feels that she had a fall out with religion a while ago but since she had a kid, her parents want to have him baptized. She wants to tell her parents that she doesn’t want to raise her kids under the strict religious ways her parents did to her and believes that they will disown her with her decision.
Steve put in his 2cents of when he grew up his mom was very lax and never had any pressure of having religion in his life. Slacker believes that Mary should stop being afraid of her parents and put her foot down about her raising her child how she wants.
What advice do you have for her?

Lil D borrowed Steve’s car over the weekend and discovered something we never knew about him. He got in Steve’s car and Steve had dance/electronica music blasting! Lil D had heard through the station that Matt has also had the same experience when driving Steve’s car.
So much disappointment from Slacker about this one, Slacker asked if Steve even knew the most famous dubstep artist today. Steve hesitated and didn’t really answer the question, he was caught that he had no clue. Lil D couldn’t help to rag on some vampire related fan base, if you are over the age of 25 he believes you should move on and watch a different show.
What are you too old to be obsessed with?

Did you ever wonder what your great-great-grandpa said when he stubbed his toe? Here are some old-fashioned swear words that he might have said loudly. Producer lil D needs help finding some words he can say around his almost born baby, that won’t scar the child.
Great horn spoon!
G. Rover Cripes!
No one knows, but in Slackers free time he likes to curse like a sailor. You might think that he has a potty free mouth, but you are wrong…he can string together more curse words than dad-sizzle.
What are some swear words that you use around the kids?
You bought a hot new bikini…you were looking good at the pool…and then it happened…
Slacker was at a friend’s house to go see the baby and she turned around with the goods showing. Boobs now are seen as food from Slackers side, but Steve is still a 12 year old boy when it comes to them.
When was your Boobie Pop Out Moment?
When I was 3 the whole family went to Hawaii (grandparents, uncle and his girlfriend and my parents). I was swimming in the ocean with my soon to be aunt…a huge wave and took us under! She held on to me, which was good…but she lost her top, and the whole family saw.
Heather and her family are having to put their family dog down, but they want to bring him home to spend a few last days with the kids--don’t worry, he’s not in any pain, we are putting him down before it gets to that point. Their oldest is 11 and his dad wants to bring him to the vet with us when we do it. He says that our son is going to have to be the man of the house someday and needs to start learning how to deal with these situations. He also thinks that he needs to learn that death is a part of life that you have to deal with--even if it’s your best friend. Heather hates the idea of bringing their son into some strange room and letting him see the dog he’s had since he was born be put down. Is this a good life lesson for a boy? Am I overreacting?
Slacker doesn’t think that he could even go in the back and watch…but he is a big baby. This is huge, there really isn’t a right answer…Slacker and Steve are advising against him going in the room, they think he is too young.
What advice do you have for Heather?
I think that the boy should make the decision, both Heather and her husband are right, but in the end it should be the son’s decision on if he wants to go or not.
When you’re down in the dumps sometimes only one thing can make you feel better…shopping!!! A new survey by Ebates.com reveals that 64% of women and 40% of men have used 'Retail Therapy' to cheer themselves up.
50% of people think online shopping provides better therapy than visiting physical store locations.
40% of women and 21% of men say 'Retail Therapy' instantly improves their mood.
Slacker is part of the 64% of women who use ‘retail therapy’ to cheer up. He shops for his kids, which always makes him feel better; we will just say that Steve is the main source for Slackers unhappiness. On the other hand when Steve needs some retail therapy he usually goes on e-bay or oakley, we know because everything he owns is oakley related.
What have you purchased to make you feel better?
Buying shoes always makes me feel better. But I feel like a lot of women fall under this shoe
Seven percent of American voters believe the moon landing was faked, 6 percent say Osama bin Laden is still alive, and 13 percent think President Barack Obama is the Antichrist. This is according to a new poll from Public Policy Polling, which recently conducted a survey on 20 "widespread and/or infamous" conspiracy theories. According to the poll of 1,247 registered American voters, 37 percent believe global warming is a hoax. Among Republicans, the poll found that 58 percent believe global warming is a hoax, while just 25 percent do not. Among Democrats, 11 percent believe global warming is a hoax, while 77 percent do not. Nearly a third (29 percent) of those polled believe aliens exist; 21 percent of American voters says a UFO crashed in Roswell, N.M., in 1947 and that the U.S. government covered it up. Fourteen percent believe in Bigfoot.
Slacker finds some conspiracies believable, to an extent, nothing crazy but still is a little understandable. Steve on the other hand doesn’t
Work Damage by Slacker And Steve,posted Apr 4 2013 5:30PM
Macy's mailed an advertisement across the country earlier this month with a major pricing mistake. It listed a $1,500 necklace on sale for $47. The necklace is listed as a sterling silver and 14-karat gold. Macy's said it is regularly priced at $1,500. But the mailer listed it on sale for $47. The actual sale price was supposed to be $479, but Macy's printed the 44-page circular without the "9." Macy's spokeswoman in an e-mail stated that: "For those customers who bought the necklace at the $47 price, they were fortunate. Macy's will not say how many necklaces it mistakenly sold at the wrong price.
How much did your mess-up cost the company?
Slacker one time sang a song, which includes a word that starts with the letter F… needless to say everyone who heard was in the studio in record breaking time to tell him what damage was just caused. Steve has dropped the mother of all words on the radio, S…something bright as day which cost in a hefty fine along with everyone else freaking out!!
Meredith is 38, and a mother of two. Her oldest is away at college. Last weekend, Meredith ran into one of his high school buddies at a bar. They both got buzzed and kissed in the parking lot. On Sunday, he friended her on Facebook and suggested that they see each other again. Meredith isn’t sure if he has told her son. She doesn’t think he has. Should she tell her son or view this as a quiet fling? What's the rule on this? Is it wrong?
Slacker does not think this is a good idea; it’s weird that he is the same age as her son! He’s suggesting that she should take it for what it was and move on. Steve doesn’t think its wrong, but the whole ‘relationship’ needs to be kept on the down low.
What should she do?
This is a significant age gap and kind of weird… I think Meredith should just quit while she is ahead. This is just weird, and I would be completely uncomfortable if my parents had a thing with someone I went to high school with, let alone someone my age.
Brandon and Olivia are engaged. Olivia says Brandon used to be a player and still gets a lot of calls and texts from girls he used to hook up with. She wants him to change his cell phone number. Brandon says that he never answers or responds to anything he gets from the girls. He also uses his cell phone for all of his business contacts. He thinks that because they are engaged now, Olivia is trying to control everything in his life.
Slacker and Steve both think that he should just change his number “it takes 3 minutes”. This is a situation that keeps inflating, where it could not be a problem at all if he just changed his number. Slacker and Steve are staying impartial for this Great Mate Debate.
Whose side are you on?
This seems like a situation where each their own…there really isn’t a right or wrong answer or thing to do in this case. It totally depends on the relationship and how they want to handle.
Samoa Air just became the first airline to start charging people for tickets per pound! Instead of standard tickets travelers will be charged based on the weight of their luggage... and body weight. They reason that more weight equals more fuel so they have to even out the ends somehow.
Slacker and Steve don’t have a huge problem with this new standard because it makes perfect sense and it’s not like the airport is going to be exploiting peoples’ weights. They also see the safety issue when it comes to this situation.
What do you think?
I’m with Slacker and Steve, it’s sad that it has to come to this, but it’s a fact of life nowadays and if it concerns safety I’m all for it in the end.
If you drive an expensive car or have the latest and greatest gadget it's probably not the best idea to let a friend borrow it. Take that from Lakers center Jordan Hill who lent his Bentley to friend, Michael Lacey. Lacey got drunk, wrecked his car, and fled the scene!
Slacker once lent his guitar to a kid participating in talent show. Long story short, the kid won the talent show but Slacker’s guitar didn’t make it out alive. Steve ruined a friend’s table by gouging holes into it… the table however, ended up being a family heirloom. Oops.
Has your friend destroyed something you lent them? Have you done the destroying?
I can answer “no” to each of those questions. Go ahead, try and find something I’ve ruined.
My best friend has been recruited by one of the get rich quick companies that con foot soldiers into believing they have an unbelievable product and get them to do all of their marketing and selling for them. She really believes that what she is selling will change the world…but it won’t. I have no problem that she’s trying to make some extra money, but it’s all she talks about and she posts about it on Facebook all day. She tries to sell me on it all the time and I am not interested! She says that I just don’t understand how amazing a product it is and I’ll come around one day. It’s getting to the point that I’m avoiding her calls because I don’t want to hear about it anymore. She is my best friend and I don’t want to lose her friendship but I can’t listen to one more sales pitch. How do I get her to stop?
Slacker’s broker friend tried to sell him one night by asking him who his broker was and Slacker stood up to him by basically telling him to be his friend or try to be his broker but he couldn’t be both. Steve says (regarding today’s OPP) that as friends she should know not to try and sell to another friend. It’s just not something you do.
What advice do you have for Jackie?
I don’t think you should mix business with pleasure when it comes to friends. Jackie’s friend may be excited, but she seems a little delusional and entirely too consumed with her product or business venture that it’s taking over their friendship. Jackie has even told her “no” so she should understand that she’s crossing this boundary that shouldn’t really be crossed.
The cruise industry has been getting a lot of “serious” complaints lately. Some passengers have complained that the ocean is too loud, it’s too hard to get a tan in Alaska, and they spent too much money on tips because the service was too good. One couple complained that the ship left without them even though they left a note for the captain asking for him to delay departure.
Slacker says that he only complains when it doesn’t matter. Meaning, if he’s at a restaurant and the staff does something wrong or he won’t say a word, but if it’s about a little nothing-topic he’ll complain until he’s blue in the face.
What complaints do you have?
My only complaint is that people are extremely nit-picky and will whine about anything! People even complain that “everyone complains way too much” … really?
We all know that a lot of women go to great lengths to keep their youthful look…we want to hear how crazy you got. Letting fish eat your dead skin off…going to another country to get an illegal surgery.
Apparently there’s a new beauty technique of taking blood from your arm, putting it into a machine to separate the platelets and injecting it into your face. “Vampire Botox” Slacker is true believer in the toothpaste on your face before bed thing. He, however is completely against the cucumber and mud face thing his mom used to do.
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done for beauty?

Wussed Out by Slacker And Steve,posted Apr 2 2013 5:55PM
Slacker had a friend that was driving a car in a packed mall, looking for parking. He found a spot but a woman was standing the spot and was saving it. Slacker believes he should have just nudged the woman out of the way and taken the spot instead of wussing out.
When have you stood up for yourself, or wussed out on something?

Emily’s husband fell off a ladder and sprained a groin muscle and she’s tired of him whining about his injury. He has been asking her to get things for her like a glass of water or food when she thinks he is fully capable of getting up and do it himself.
Steve believes in the “for better or for worse” vow and Slacker thinks that the husband should stop whining.
Should she tell him to grow up?

Today’s topic is about sleep walking! Slacker got beat up in the middle of the night…by his own wife while she was sleepwalking. Apparently sleep walking is common in Slackers family, since his son, wife and probably following daughter all sleep walk. He had to comfort his son last night since he was wandering around the house and would not fall asleep unless Slacker lay down with him. He finally gets his son to calm down to sleep and goes back to his bed with his wife…until she kicks him square in the sternum, knocking the wind out of him. He hears his wife screaming; thinking there’s someone in the house and grabs her foot, thinking it’s the intruder’s foot. His wife wakes up curious and angry why Slacker is holding her foot.
What weird things have you done while sleep walking?

In New York a new rule is going into effect for bars and restaurants that 8 o'clock will be the cut-off for babies to be in bars. Many other cities across the nation are also considering putting this rule into effect. Adults are tired of having to watch their language around children and they are tired of parents reprimanding their behavior around their children. Then stop bringing your kids into an adult atmosphere.
The most inappropriate place Slacker watched a woman bring in a baby carrier and infant into the smokers lounge at the airport. Steve has seen kids at the gentle men’s club, along with shopping marts at 2 or 3 am… Both Slacker and Steve are for kids having a curfew at adult places.
Where is the most inappropriate place you've seen a kid?
I have seen little kids at bars and past a certain time I find it inappropriate; especially at bars late at night it is really weird seeing kids out…I don’t see a problem to the bar side of this but if a place is predominately a restaurant 8 o’clock might be a little early.
Used by Slacker And Steve,posted Apr 1 2013 5:20PM
A woman who calls herself a "dinner whore" admits she would meet her 'victims' on the dating site OKCupid and through Craigslist, and would go out for dinner three times a week with different men. Of course, the guys paid the bill every time. It all started when she arrived in New York about two years ago as a broke recent college graduate. A friend suggested that she sign up to the site OKCupid to get into the dating scene, which inspired her to use the site to set dinner dates. She would start chatting with the ‘meal ticket' online, hoping that he would offer to take her out on a date to a restaurant of her choice, which she said would happen 90 percent of the time. After going out on some 200 dinner dates and confessing to running up a combined tab of $30,000, she decided to shut down her operation.
When Slacker was in the band, he didn’t have an extra dime to spend on food. So what he did was go home with women who looked like they enjoyed making breakfast; he would sleep there and in the morning like clockwork they would make him a good hearty breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day…
Blaine met a girl from work that is really hot. They started talking a couple weeks after he started at this job and she is really cool. They hang out on their breaks, at lunch and sometimes they even go out for a beer after work. Every time they are together all she does is complain about her boyfriend. He’s lazy; all he does is complain about his job, he plays too many video games, etc. Blaine would love to date this girl, but he is really confused. Does she want him to be her knight in shining armor and rescue her from her horrible boyfriend? Or is Blaine so far in the friend zone that she is comfortable enough to talk to him about her boyfriend?
Steve thinks that Blaine is in the friend zone; she is having “girlfriend” convo with him and he is going to stay there. Slacker thinks that it may not be stuck in the friend zone; he just needs to make a move in order not to be stuck in the friend zone. All hope may be lost in this case…
What is your advice for Blaine?
I think Blaine should just play it by ear and see what happens, or just tell her how he feels. There are a lot of options in this situation…but I have never heard anything good about dating someone you work with. Who knows maybe he is feeling this way because he “can’t” date her.
Pranks by Slacker And Steve,posted Apr 1 2013 3:30PM
Turns out girls can be just as nasty as boys--- and even more competitive! Reportedly four pupils of Cassville High School in southwest Missouri relieved themselves in cups during a basketball match against Monett School and one of the girls poured her urine into Monett's water cooler! Authorities at Cassville High have punished the players and have asked infectious disease specialists for advice. A letter went out to shocked parents of the girls on the receiving end of the prank and called for restraint. It read in part: "We understand that all of us in Monett are angered and frustrated by this occurrence. We encourage you to support our stance that retaliation in any way stoops to the level of the offence committed against us."
Steve has always taken care of the things he owns…He dropped his car off at the Audi dealership over the weekend to get the bumper buffed, and winter to summer tires put on. Slacker decided this would be an opportune time to prank Steve. After much deliberation going through multiple wrap designs for Steve’s car, hot pink with lime green polka-dots was the winner. Today Steve showed up at the Audi dealership and was welcomed by his beautifully wrapped hot pink with green polka-dots S5, Slacker and camera crew. Happy April Fools!
What is the best prank you have pulled off?
The best prank I ever pulled off…my roommates boyfriend passed out with his shoes on, one fine Wednesday night. About 4 am I needed to go to the restroom, on my way my roommate (whose boyfriend it was, was also out…looking for him) we realize that this is the perfect moment to play a prank. After discussing our options we realize that painting his nails with pink glitter nail polish is the best thing to do, especially considering that he works the front desk at a gym. Everyone is up bright and early to go to class or work and right as my roommates boyfriend is getting the keys to his car we hear him yell…he was just super excited about his manicure.
