Here's a list of things you should never say to women in public or private:
1. Shouldn't you be at home with that baby? When it comes to mothers, it's best to not judge the parenting style of a complete stranger.
2. Are you sure you should be drinking that glass of wine while you're pregnant? Okay, we've all heard of the dangers of drinking while pregnant, but that doesn't mean it's up to us to try and educate a woman carrying an extra person around.
3. Are you on your period or something? Belittling a woman's feelings while also belittling the actual issues that come during menstruation is a good way to come across like an insensitive jerk.
4. Why don't you put them away? Women have this weird thing where they don't like people to tell them what to do with their own body parts.
5. What's your bra size? This isn't a sexy question, a woman can tell you're staring at her breasts she doesn't need you to call further attention to it.
6. What are you doing here? If she's there it's because she has just as much right as you do to be there.
Slacker said don’t ever, ever, ever tell anyone how to parent! When men talk about a woman’s time of the month there is no way to say it without sounding like they are belittling the woman. Slacker said that he has gone to the “you’re on your time of the month” level with his wife.
Steve said his was mom yelling at him and his friend asked him what was going on and he replied “My mom is yelling at me she must be on the ____!” He turned around and is mom heard him and knocked him out. Don’t say that!
Little D said to his wife, “Can’t you do it your only staying home with the baby today?”
Help us grow the list of things you should not say to a woman! What should never be said to a woman?
I was moving into a new place. My boyfriend helped me a bit here and there but most of it was all me. I invited him over one night and he said “I’ll come over if we don’t have to move anything otherwise I will wait till later when you are done to “spend the night” with you.” I replied, “It’s pretty sad that my ex-husband is willing to help me lift a few heavy items to help me out but me boyfriend won’t even keep me company!” That was true.
Hero by Slacker And Steve,posted Oct 31 2013 5:25PM
A mailman saved the life of one of his customers in Coconut Grove, Florida . The man was delivering mail when heard a customer he has known for 10-years, screaming for help. The door was door open so he went into the home and called 911. He remained with the woman and was coached by paramedics on the phone until Fire Rescue arrived. The woman was taken to a local hospital. The woman survived and the mailman's actions are being credited with preventing her from having a fatal heart attack.
A Detroit mailman saved a woman's house from burning down while he was on his route. He saw smoke coming from her home and ran into it to see if anyone was inside. He grabbed a garden house from outside, hooked it up, took it inside, and started spraying the fire. He held it down until the real firefighters showed up. He then picked his mail bag back up and finished his route as though nothing had happened.
Slacker thinks sometimes Steve has bended the rules to help himself. But he is upset that Steve is not approving of others helping those around them.
Steve thinks that both mailmen should be fired because they should not have entered the premises. Technically they should be fired because they are going against policies. Let them be heroes to everyone else but they should be fired.
If you have been saved or have ever come to someone else’s rescue we want to hear the story! What is your greatest hero story?
I am a girl in her late 20's and I've never had a boyfriend. I went out with one guy for 2 months, and there have been a few others since then, but I never get past the first or second date. I would sleep with them and they would never call again. I used to think to keep a guy you need to sleep with them, now I'm almost 30 and know that's not the case. I have lost 35 pounds and am ready to meet my first real boyfriend. I am on many different dating sites and I put myself out there, but I can't seem to meet anyone. I give out my number and never get calls. My friends get hit on in bars--I do not. I feel like now that I'm ready to settle down no one wants me. I haven't been on a "real" date and I wouldn't know how to act. I feel like the clock is running out being close to 30.
I feel hopeless. I hope someone else has been in this place. I'm starting to lose the confidence I had, and I know it's not me. I am amazing and I know that. Thanks for any advice I can get!
Slacker thinks that Candy is still carrying around the old Candy. Where does confidence come from? You either have confidence or you don’t or you have to get it from someone else. Getting it from someone else is not really true confidence and they can take it back. If you are ever really going to online dating be true to who you really are don’t fake it.
Steve says if striking up a conversation with a woman he can tell if she has self confidence issues in the past. Guys can tell right away if the girl is wanting a serious relationship or is desperate. That is not an attractive quality. She needs a better support system through friends.
She needs your help. What do you think she should do?
If you don't have confidence in yourself you attract the wrong kind of people. She needs to find good friends to help her out in everyday situations so she knows how to deal. Stop searching so hard for a man just go do the things you love and let it happen naturally.
Kim says he insists on letting their child Connor get away with murder! She just wants a clean house for her and her family to live in. Even before Connor came along she likes things to be in its place it allows her to relax. She needs to keep up the house all day or it gets to be too much since he pulls stuff out all over the house. She feels she is giving Connor structure so he learns how to clean up after himself.
Kyle says she is a neat freak and doesn’t let Connor make messes ever! He needs to be a kid let him make messes sometimes. She is stifling his creativity. She immediately picks up his Legos or his coloring book or PlayDo as soon as he walks away before he has a chance to explore what he can build. She should leave it for a bit so if he wants to come back to it he can. He appreciates her keeping up the house but he wants his kid to be able to express himself as a kid. He wants her to leave Connor’s messes to stay for an hour before picking it up. The house does not have to be perfect all the time.
Slacker‘s wife is from Brazil so she cleans up immediately because when she was young there was not enough room to leave messes. When he was a kid he used to build stuff over the course of a week or a month. He would leave it and come back to it later. Slacker thinks Kim is right you can’t allow the messes to pile up and soon you will be living in filth. The mess is part of being a kid.
Steve hates messes so he agrees with Kim. Steve says that he and Kim are kindred spirits. Teach your kids to be creative but when it is done you have to put it back. They should have an area for the child can get messy so that he can play. If Kim is tearing apart Lego projects, that’s not cool. If you can’t handle messes then kids should have been the last thing on your list because that is what they do.
Whose side are you on? What should they do?
Kids should be allowed to keep their Legos out or their puzzles etc. In their room away from everyone else’s living space should not be a problem. You don’t want your kids to grow up slobs either. I think it is great that Connor has two parents that are passionate about both sides. Kim and Kyle need a compromise like letting the art stuff stay out longer or maybe designate him a special area that only gets cleaned up once a day so he is free to do his thing and the whole house isn’t a mess for Kim’s sake.
Dr. Conrad Murray was released from jail yesterday. A cameraman followed him to In & Out Burger. That was his first meal after getting out of jail. Survey says that many say their favorite restaurant would be their first stop too.
Slacker said he would go to whole foods and get fruit like mango or raspberries something fresh. For sure would want Sushi. Thanksgiving food would be something that he would want the turkey and gravy all of that yummy comfort food.
Steve respects Conrad’s choice. Steve loves cafeteria food so he would want to take a to-go box from the jail. Legit boxed and canned food or fast food. Or his creation the egg tuna salad sandwich can of orange crush and a bag of Frito’s.
Little D says he is addicted to Philly Cheese Steak Eggrolls with sweet and sour sauce. At a Mexican restaurant in Dallas he had a sweet tea that he has been craving ever since even though he hates sweet tea.
What would your first stop out of jail or right off an island be?
I agree with slacker I would want sushi with a big pitcher of hot Saki. Or a big plate of my mom’s lasagna with a single malt to wash it down.
There is a 23 year old penniless woman in Toronto that wants to eat at all the fancy restaurants in the area. So she has advertised on dating sites about taking her out on a date. She doesn’t care who it is that takes her she just wants to go to all of her list of 50+ food stops.
A man in Colorado feared that his wife of 25 years may be a gold-digger so he takes his 500,000 in life savings and turned it into gold. He hid it behind a dumpster. The gold was then gone when he returned to get it. Now he has no money at all.
Slacker says that the man’s wife would not have been with him for 25 years if she was a Gold-Digger. It is the woman’s fault because they allow them to give them these extravagant gifts and only date them if they have money. Although, men can say NO.
Steve says that guys let themselves get dug. Men are using these women to get what they want. It is the man’s fault because they just throw things at you. If they throw themselves out there then he deserves what he gets.
Have you crossed over? You're more than a gold-digger...you're a diamond digger! What is your worst Diamond-Digging story?
I have had men offer me a nice house and a car and an easy life where I would no longer have to work etc. All they wanted in return is that I marry them and or date them and all the benefits that come with that. Unfortunately, I have a conscience and was not attracted to these men so I had to turn them down. Men that don’t have good looks or natural finesse often use money as a pick-up line to their advantage. So why would a woman not take them up on that offer if that is what they are selling.
My husband and I had some friends over a couple of nights ago. They showed up to the house with two relatively nice bottles of wine. Because it was a special occasion for our friends, I suggested we first open a bottle of our wine to celebrate. Of course one bottle turned into many and we never opened the wine they brought. As they were leaving at the end of the night, she picked up their wine and thanked us for a fun evening. She took the wine back home with her! I told my husband that it was beyond rude and we won't be having them over again. He thinks I'm being outrageous. What do you think? Is it appropriate to take the wine back home?
Slacker says that the rules of etiquette do not always apply to real life. Slacker has had many people come over for parties and bring bad beer and then drink his good beer while at the party then leave taking their bad beer with them. If they are feeding you and or serving drinks hosting you at an event then they should be given the wine.
Steve asks why did you bring the wine to the party was it meant to be drank or was it a gift? If there is a bow on it or a bag then it is definitely a gift and should be left for the host. If you go to a party you should bring what you are going to drink don’t bring the cheap stuff and then drink the good stuff.
Was it rude? Should she let them know why they are not going to be invited again? What advice do you have for Julianna?
Ultimately they bought it they should be able to take it to drink at home if it did not get used. Maybe they thought the others were rude for never opening up their bottles. If you go to a party and you bring a bottle of wine at the end of the night I may suggest asking the host if they want to keep it. If not, then yeah, take it home you don’t want it to go to waste. I used to have parties at my place all the time and when people would bring their own drinks they would leave bottles all the time. Sometimes they would leave it and it would never get drank since there are some things I don’t like to drink.
81% of Parents Admit to Stealing Their Kids’ Candy! Kids eat a lot of candy at Halloween. But do you know who else eats a lot of candy? Parents of children who get a lot of candy! According to a new survey by The National Confectioner’s Association, 81 percent of parents admit to stealing their kids’ Halloween candy. 46% of those thieving moms and dads wait until their child is asleep or out of the house before taking and eating the candy. The survey also found that parents are much more strict and limiting about their kids' candy consumption than they are about their own. Kids, if you are listening, guard your Halloween candy from your parents – they're stealing it and eating it!
Slacker thinks that the skim off the top of their candy collection from Halloween is a finder’s fee for all the stuff parents have to provide to make Halloween possible. Same goes for birthday parties. Slacker puts out lots of money for his kids birthday party and thinks that if his kid got a gift card as a gift he should be allowed to use it. If college fund is not already given, it should not be called stealing.
Steve thinks that it is wrong to take the candy from your kids on Halloween since they are the ones that worked hard to get it. You make the decision to be parents so you shouldn’t need a finder’s fee to make a day great for your kids. We teach our kids not to steal and lie and yet it is ok for us to do it.
What have you stolen from your kids? Or have your parents ever stolen from you?
I have two daughters and I almost never buy them accessories that I don’t like since I plan to wear them as well… They want, want, want but they don’t always use. So I make sure if they want it I should be able to use it if they don’t. I’d rather call it "sharing."
McDonald's French fries and Heinz ketchup are a match made in fast food heaven, but things are about to change drastically. McDonald's is ending its more than 40-year relationship with Heinz, citing management changes at the Ketchup company headquarters as the reason. No word on which supplier McDonald's will switch to, but it's a major change – especially since ketchup connoisseurs, yes they exist, swear up and down that Heinz is the best tasting ketchup out there. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting that the changes were put into motion after Heinz appointed Bernardo Hees as CEO of the company. Hees' former position was as CEO of Burger King, McDonald's biggest competitor. Whatever the reason, be prepared – Heinz will be phased out of all McDonald's locations, including all international franchises.
That got us thinking...does all ketchup taste the same or are you loyal to a specific brand? Are you brand loyal to any other products?
A Chinese man who met a woman online was shocked to find out.... she was his son's wife. The 57-year-old man's son had also followed his wife to the hotel after discovering her online relationship, and he was just as disturbed to find his father waiting for her. The angry son beat his father as well as his own wife, causing her to lose three teeth. The woman was a stay-at-home mother and her husband was a long-haul cargo truck driver who spent long stretches away for work. The pair met on an online chat room one night and decided to send each other a picture of themselves, but the woman sent a photo of a friend while her father-in-law used the photo of an old friend from the military.
Also, A boy whose life was saved by an off-duty nurse had the opportunity to save his savior's life seven years later. The first incident happened in 1999, when Kevin Stephen went into cardiac arrest after being hit by a baseball bat at a game. Penny Brown, a nurse, was at that game and saved Stephen's life. In a remarkable twist of fate, Stephen was able to return the favor when Brown started choking at a restaurant where he was working. It was lucky that Brown was at the game at all in 1999. She was supposed to be working, but had a slow night at the hospital. So she decided to go to her son's game and was there when Stephen took the blow. "He was just in the wrong place," Brown said. "Another little boy was warming up, and Kevin, unfortunately, took a bat right directly in his chest. So he immediately fell to the ground and I had witnessed what had occurred." Brown ran down from the stands and performed CPR. Stephen went on with his life but felt he never had the chance to thank Brown properly until, by chance, she ended up at the restaurant where he works. And, again, it was a lucky twist of fate that brought the two together. Stephen hadn't expected to work that night because it was exam week at his school. But because he didn't have any tests that day, his manager slipped him onto the schedule. When Brown started to choke, Stephen rushed over to perform the Heimlich maneuver but had no idea the woman in his arms was Penny Brown. "I did the Heimlich and she, like, sat down and just kept trying to catch her breath," Stephen told Syler. "My mom told me that that was Mrs. Brown who had saved my life."
The extraordinary events have given both heroes a lot to think about and Stephen says he feels it is more than coincidence that brought them together. "I think, maybe, it was like divine intervention," he said. "I was just in shock. I was almost in disbelief.”
Do you have a "You Wouldn't Believe Me If I Told You..." story?
Yi! My husband wants to go as Miley Cyrus for Halloween. In fact, he's dressed as a woman the last five Halloweens...Vanna White, Cher, Kelly Rippa, Katy Perry and now Miley. My friends have been making comments and wondering why he enjoys dressing as women. Now I'm questioning it too. Is it out-of-line for me to confront him about it? Is this something I should be worried about?
Steve thinks this is a sign that Laura's husband could have tendencies that she is not aware of. He doesn't know exactly what those tendecies could be, but he thinks Laura needs to be careful. Slacker thinks Laura is being ridiculous. He says Halloween is a day for people to be who they are not and that's all her husband is doing.
Do you think her husband dressing as a woman for 5 straight years is something to be worried about?

What are the worst things a co-worker has done that you've ever had to deal with?
A North Texas youth football group has decided that it will stop awarding trophies simply for participation. In order to get a statue, players with the Keller Youth Association's football program will have to advance to and win the league's Super Bowl. This year, the league will award participation medals to participants instead. The KYA board feels participation medals and trophies do not send kids the right message.
From KYA Football facebook page:
"So we have been asked a gazillion times if we are giving participation trophies this year and the answer is no. However we will be giving participation medals and those that win Super Bowls will get trophies...
Going forward participation medals or trophies will be going away. KYA Football board feels that giving participation medals or trophies isn't sending our children the right message. Trophies are something you should strive for and earn. Life does not give you a participation job or medal, life makes you earn everything you get. We know not everyone will agree but we feel this is the right direction for KYA Football to go in...."
Do you think all kids should be awarded participation trophies? Do they send kids the right message?
Allegedly, here are America's sexiest haunted hotels where you might get it on with a ghost.
Hotel Colorado (Glenwood Springs, CO)
There have been several ghost sightings at this historic hotel. Some male guests have reported a female ghost watches them while they sleep. Some ghosts just like to watch. Ask to stay in room 551.
Crescent Hotel & Spa (Eureka Springs, AR)
This charming Ozark hotel was originally used as a school for girls and later as a "fraudulent cancer hospital." Today this grand Victorian is widely-considered the most haunted hotel in America. Previous tenant, "Doctor" Norman Baker was said to have performed questionable medical techniques on both the living and the dead. There are many restless spirits here, including a sexy Irish stonemason who fell to his death in 1885.
The Battery Carriage House Inn (Charleston, SC)
This charming Charleston inn is home to several ghosts. A headless torso haunts Room 8. Some guests have reported he watches them while they sleep (not sure how he does that without a head) and he breathes quite heavily (on a side note, I've got an exboyfriend who also fits this profile). Lastly, Room 10 is home to a "gentleman ghost", so take that however you'd like.
Homestead (Hot Springs, VA)
Legend has it, a woman was set to marry at this inn, but at the last minute her groom-tobe got cold feet, left her before the ceremony and in response she took her own life. Staff members have reported seeing this bridal apparition roaming the resort.
Longfellows Wayside Inn (Sudbury, MA)
You know the story, American girl falls in love with a British guy. He promises to come back to America to marry her. He doesn't. She dies, single and alone after waiting over 40 years for him and subsequently becomes a ghost.
The Roosevelt (Hollywood, CA)
Montgomery Clift and Marilyn Monroe are two ghosts reported to wander the halls looking for an erotic ectoplasmic encounter. Ask for room 802.
The Queen Mary (Long Beach, CA)
The Queen Mary is considered to be one of the most haunted hotels in the U.S. due to the fact that it allegedly has a plethora of psychic "hot spots." Here's the rundown: The pool is reportedly haunted by the spirits of two women who drowned there in both the 1930s and 1960s; a woman in white haunts the Queen's Salon; and a man in a 1930s suit has been seen roaming around the First Class Suites.
It doesn't have to be relations story but we want to know, have you ever had an encounter with a ghost or spirit?
Yi! I've been married a little over 6 years and have 2 beautiful children with my husband. I got pregnant when we were dating so we decided to get married and raise our kids together. He's a good man and an even better father. The problem I'm having is that I haven't been very happy for a while. I think we may have rushed things and I'm not sure that my husband is "the one." I can honestly say that I believe the perfect person for me is still out there. I don't want to give out too many details of my life, but I need to know if it's worth taking the risk of leaving my husband and trying to find the perfect person.
Please help guys!!
Should she risk her comfortable life and try to find the one?
A renewed law in Pennsylvania makes it illegal to touch a pregnant woman's belly without permission. The warning came after a case in the central part of the state. "Essentially, someone had touched a pregnant woman's belly. That's very common that pregnant women have to go through. The only problem is when you harass, annoy, alarm in the act of touching, then it's a violation, a harassment charge," said attorney Phil DiLucente.
Slacker has never understood why poeple want to touch a pregnant woman's belly. Is there some sort of power transfer that happens when you touch her? He equates it to picking up a random person's puppy on the street. You wouldn't do that, so why would you touch her?
Steve doesn't understand why this has to be a law. Why can't pregnant women just ask someone not to touch them when they get close. He says this is just another way for people to be passive aggressive and not deal with their own problems.
Did random strangers touch your belly while you were pregnant? Did it bother you?
Strike by Slacker and Steve,posted Oct 28 2013 8:59PM
The women of Barbacaos, Colombia have gone on a sex strike in order to get the city's main road fixed. The road is so bad it takes residents 14 hours to get to the nearest hospital. The women went on a strike in 2011 and were promised the road would be fixed. Heavy machinery has been seen in the area leading some to believe new pavement is coming.
Steve warns that this is a dangerous move by these women. Taking that away from their men could lead them to stray and then nothing good comes out of the situation.
Slacker once went on strike from a restaurant he went to at least 2 or 3 times a week. His reason was because his wife refused to eat there because an employee was mean to her when she called in a to-go order. She told Slacker that they were not going to eat there any more. The problem was that Slacker loved this restaurant way too much to just stop eating there. He admitted to sneaking over to the restaurant to eat and paying cash so it wouldn't show up on his credit card.
Have you ever gone on strike from something? Did it work?
Zany environmental science professor Jeff Wilson has committed to living in a dumpster for an entire year as part of a new course on low-impact living! Roughly one-percent the size of a new American home, the six-foot wide abode will be outfitted with solar panels, water filtration and energy-producing toilets. Wilson's students at Huston-Tillotson University will study the modified dumpster throughout his stay! Professor Wilson will begin his year in a dumpster later this fall in Austin, Texas.
Slacker said that he used to know a house that would throw away almost new stuff. When he was in school he knew parents that would buy their kids all new furniture for their dorm and at the end of the year they would throw it all out and buy new stuff next year. Cruise the campuses at the end of the year you may find great stuff.
Steve said that he lived near a convenience store that would throw out new stuff all the time. There was a guy Steve knew that found an old Harvard University yearbook and made a killing on it on ebay. Or hang out near retail store dumpsters they sometimes throw out new clothes that are old styles.
It may be frowned upon, but you can get some awesome stuff dumpster diving! What are your amazing Dumpster Diving Discoveries?
Rachel has a problem with her boyfriend’s sister. It’s not her character or the way she treats other people…it’s her looks! Wait before you jump to conclusions...it is because she looks…exactly like her! She showed up to dinner with his parent’s and met her boyfriend’s sister for the first time and couldn’t stop staring because she looks, acts, speaks and dresses the same as her. We are talking identical! She even goes as far as to say that they share many of the same mannerisms like hair twirling. It is weirding her out because she is afraid that he may think of his sister during intimate moments.
Slacker said he knows someone distantly related that had a thing for him and would date men that looked like him through all of his style changes. Steve thinks it was as if she was looking for him. Steve said he would be freaked out if someone walked in that looked just like him. If it is a strong enough resemblance then it could be a strange attraction to his sister. Slacker once broke up with a girl because they were getting intimate and a journey song was on and when he looked down for some reason he realized she reminded him of Steve Perry. Are we reading too far into this?
Halloween is coming up and we have a few things we need cleared up! Has anyone ever actually found a razor blade in an apple? How old is too old to Trick-or-Treat? Do you take your kids to hot zip codes for better candy? What age should you let your kid trick or treat without an adult? What is more fun....staying home to hand out candy or going out with the kids trick or treating? Do you drink with your kids trick or treating? Do you deny older kids candy? Do you hate it when kids are bussed-in from other neighborhoods to trick or treat in your hood? Do you think your candy should only go to the kids in your hood? Remember when you were allowed to trick or treat one neighborhood over for the first time? Did you vandalize on Halloween? We’re talking Halloween Etiquette.
Slacker is not a believer in the urban legend about the razor blade in the apple or in candy. It is all a conspiracy so that the parents can eat some of the kid’s candy. Slacker thinks there is an age that you should stop trick or treating “get a job and go buy your own candy!”
Steve was confused why he kept getting parents at his door with an empty cup in hand. Do they expect me to fill their cup up with booze? Steve gave out king sized candy bars last year.
What do you think about displaying Halloween Etiquette?
Un-send by Slacker And Steve,posted Oct 24 2013 7:16PM
A teacher's assistant from the University of Iowa recently embarrassed herself after she accidentally sent her students nude photos of herself instead of answers to a math question!80 students received the shots in an Email that read: “Hi class, I attach the solutions for number 76 and 78 in this email. Best.”
Slacker has sent text messages to Steve by mistake that he meant to send to his wife and vice versa. There is a recall on the company email here at the station. I don’t know how she mistook sending the photos with a word document? Steve even I would not have been able to accomplish that kind of mistake. Slacker has almost thrown his phone in the toilet to try to stop a text from going through. We need to invent an app that has an extra step that confirms that you really want to send out those messages.
Little D was having a conversation via text with slacker during their night out and remembered all the messages from his phone were also going to his iPad that his wife was on. Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop!
Do you have an email, text, social media post you wish you could un-send?
I was once sending a text with photo included to my boyfriend with intimate content and I sent it to his dad instead by mistake. It was one of those…..I am constructing the message and was interrupted by a call from his dad about dinner that weekend. For some reasons the text gods said “transfer this text to the last call you made instead.” I immediately called him back instructing him not to open the message but the damage was already done. We had a good laugh but it is still a little weird knowing he has seen too much of me.
Lil D got someone fired over a prank call. Have you ever seen those “ How’s My Driving” bumper stickers you see on the back of work trucks? Yeah….When Little D was a young man he and an accomplice decided to call the number and lie telling them that he was driving like a crazy man. The lady informed him that this was the driver’s third strike and he was to be terminated immediately. OH NO! He tried to tell them that it all a prank but the damage was done the complaint had been filed there was nothing he could do to stop it.
Slacker has heard other people say that they are going to get him fired. It never really happens though. He tried to get a music store technician fired when he messed up his guitar. It did not work. We know someone that got someone fired over donut holes! A friend ordered donut holes and when she got home she realized that she was missing a large amount. She was outraged and made a big deal and the sales person got fired over it.
Have you ever gotten someone fired?
My story is more about self preservation. I once had a manager that I did not get along with and he kept writing me up for a false reasons. I was on the fast track to losing my job. I told my general manager about a night he and I shared as well as his little drug problem. All true. He was fired the next day and kept my job. I can’t say I feel bad but normally I would never kiss and tell.
"I have some friends that have a VERY overweight 10 year old daughter. They put her on a strict diet to try to get her back to a healthy weight. Because of her diet they are not going to let her go trick-or-treating this year! She has been before so she will think she's being punished. How can you keep your child home while all of her friends are out getting candy? I don't think it's any different than taking Christmas away from your kids. I feel like I should step in and say something. Has anyone else ever banned their child from Trick-or-Treating because they were on a diet?"
Slacker thinks she is meddling. Steve says or concerned. There are many obese people in the country. Parenting should be left to the parents. It would be easier to not have the temptation in front of her than to take it away once she has it. It is a hard decision to take it away from your kids but they have to do what is right for their kid. The parents should absolutely come up with an alternative.
Have you ever taken away Halloween for the sake of your child’s diet?
I have a daughter that is 11 years old and she has had a bit of weight issue in the last few years. We talk about her choices now. She really grew out of the dress-up stage a couple of years ago so I don’t think it would be that important to her anyways. She would rather go to dinner and a movie than go Trick or Treating. As a parent I have to consider my child’s health. To say she is “VERY” overweight says this child is at risk for some serious health risks. Let the parents do their job. Come up with something else to do. Let her dress-up, throw a party with healthy snacks, take her to do something else.
They had plans to go to a Halloween party together. Vanessa bought a sexy firefighter costume to wear. Even though he asked for it off, Martin got put on the schedule for the night of the party and can't go now. She is still planning to go and Martin says there is no way you can wear that costume if I'm not there with you. She says that she won't be showing any more skin than if he was there, so what's the difference?
Slacker points out that Martin uses words like “allow” and “let her” this denotes a bit of a controlling attitude. He does however, get what he is saying. It is a night where you get to dress up and pretend you are not who you normally are not and it could get out of hand.
Steve feels like she is going to do it anyways. This one is hard since even if she agrees to the compromise and wear a covering she will likely remove it upon arrival.
Should she wear the costume or not?
She spent the money for the costume and that is what she was going to wear before. If he felt uncomfortable with it, he should have said so in the beginning. This seems to me to be a trust issue. Trust your girlfriend to come home to you. If you don’t trust your partner then this relationship is headed to its end no matter how she dresses when she goes out.
A Connecticut mom and dad came home from a trip a day early to find their teenage daughters throwing a huge party in their house. The parents didn't just freak out… they actually called the cops. The 15 and 16-year-old girls threw parties each night with about 15 to 20 people. They tried to get another one going the night their parents decided to come home early. The parents called the cops because it was "the right thing to do." Most of the kids took off but both of the daughters were arrested for permitting minors to have alcohol.
Slacker now these girls are going to have a record. Slacker does not believe in the tough love idea. Slacker said he wouldn’t want to be the one to do the punishment. There are so many other options.
Steve Did they do the right thing? They may be saving lives. Steve thinks you should try to be the parent first then if that doesn’t work then maybe go for the tough love thing. Law enforcement would be the last on the list.
Did your parents ever show any type of tough love like this? What did they do?
I once got really drunk as a teen and came home. Instead of letting me sleep it off my parents woke me up early and made me go to work with them in construction. Loud noises and lots of sun made me feel like I may die but it taught me not to do that again, for a while at least.
On Saturday, a 68-year-old Saddlebrooke, Arizona man found 22 year-old Stephen Chapman naked and sleeping with his 63 year-old wife in their guest house. When the elderly man poked Chapman with his cane Chapman lunged at him. The elderly man fired a warning shot. A shell struck Chapman in the hand. The elderly man called 911 and said Chapman had just been released from jail. His wife was trying to help him straighten out his life. Chapman was arrested for disorderly conduct.
Slacker remembers almost getting caught by his mom during his “alone” time. Advice is to first cover yourself then the rest is secondary incase this happens to you.
Steve heard the 911 call. The elderly man was asked to describe Chapman’s clothing. He was not wearing any. Steve got caught sleeping with a married woman. The husband returned home early and so Steve hid in the closet for 20 minutes. He went out the backdoor and through the golf course he went. That was Steve’s closest call.
Have you ever been caught of caught someone RED handed?
One of my ex-boyfriends hadn’t called me in a few days and I was calling him to give him some baseball tickets I had scored to see his favorite team. The game was in 2 days so I drove by his house and saw a car I did not recognize parked in the driveway. I came by again the next day and the car was still there. I had a key so I let myself in. His brother saw me and tried to keep me out but I blew past into his room where I found girl clothes makeup the works. He met me at the front door on my way out where he had to admit the CHEATING!
Update on Mariah reads:
“I called yesterday to tell you what’s going on but you wanted me to write you an email instead so here it is. I told you before that I started seeing one of the guys I hooked up with when I was trying to get pregnant. Our relationship is getting a lot more serious so I did end up telling him that I was pregnant. I didn't tell him exactly how I got pregnant but he knows that I hooked up with another guy around the time that we got together. He wasn’t happy but he said that if the baby wasn’t his we would make it work. I know the chances are pretty good that it’s not his baby and even though we haven’t been together for very long I decided that I want to have his baby and not someone else’s. I know I finally got what I wanted but now it’s more important for me to have a baby that is ours together. I decided that I’m going to get an abortion so that we don't have any questions about it being his baby or not. So that’s what’s happening. I haven’t scheduled
anything yet but it’s what I have to do.”
Slacker says that some people were cheering her on and now it has taken a twist. Some of the stories in the past seemed made up but this seems terribly real. A woman’s choice is too touchy to talk about. Opens up the lines to talk directly to Mariah.
Steve reminds that she set out to sleep with any random dude to get pregnant and now she has taken a total 180. “It’s her body” trumps all.
What is your opinion on Mariah’s situation? What should she do?
WHOA!!I think she is going to regret this decision as much as the last one! She is playing with human life now. She was so desperate to bring a child into this world at any cost to give it “love” and now she is ready to throw it away. This is all proof that she was never ready for this big step in life. Steve is right it is HER body. I understand sometimes mistakes happen and you are in a bad spot. This is not the case here. She intentionally got pregnant so it is a selfish decision.
Overheard by Slacker And Steve,posted Oct 23 2013 5:01PM
A 9-year-old girl in Kent, Washington recently turned on her new Disney princess walkie talkie for the first time, and heard the filthy conversation of two truckers. As soon as her stepmother popped batteries into the bright pink toy, she heard profanity and even racist slurs. Apparently the same frequency used by the toy is used by nearby trucker CB radios. To make matters worse, the girl's walkie-talkie only has one frequency, so she can't shut off the dirty talk. The girl's stepmother now plans to contact the FCC about the issue to make them aware of the issue.
Slacker can’t believe this actually happens since he doesn’t think the FCC allows that kind of behavior. These truckers should already be in trouble. Slacker remembers when his family first got a cordless phone in the house. Slacker says that Steve is the king of eaves droppers. He zones out and doesn’t listen to conversation because he is paying attention to other people around him.
Steve says that it CB’s are also governed by the FCC. Steve remembers when you could hear conversations through a baby monitor. One woman on facebook said she heard the neighbor’s voice over the baby monitor and the sound of a man’s voice with her newborn scared her pretty bad.
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever overheard?
The craziest thing I have ever overheard was my brother having an intimate conversation with his girlfriend over the LAND LINE phone, I know, they are virtually extinct now. I was like 6 or 7 (he is 10 years my senior) I had many questions for my mom after that one.
Sounds like Carrie Underwood could use a some help in the kitchen! The "Blown Away" singer had a little bit of trouble while cooking a meal on Saturday night. "I set off the fire alarm in my apartment trying to make dinner," she Tweeted. "Oops! Sorry neighbors… #TopChef #Kitchen#Nightmares." The 30-year-old, who married Canadian hockey player Mike Fisher in 2010, is a vegan and has been working on improving her cooking skills. "I mean I try," she told Ellen Degeneres last year. "I want to be that mom someday. My mom makes the best fill-in-the-blank. I would love to be that, so I am working on it."
Slacker's family constantly lived in fear of fire when he was growing up. They had a crockpot that was so old that Slacker was pretty sure it was the first one ever made. One day they went to plug it in and it arched so bad that it blew the outlet out of the wall!
Steve was once cooking a TV Dinner and missed a part of the foil before he put it in the microwave. The microwave started sparking and smoking. Steve ran over and pulled it out but his microwave is permanently damaged.
Did you set the kitchen on fire? Drop Thanksgiving dinner on the floor? What was your cooking catastrophe?
Residents in a Pennsylvania apartment complex haven't had water for a few weeks because the landlord hasn't paid the water bill. Water is included in the tenant's rent. The tenants are going elsewhere to fill up jugs for water and to take a shower. The bill for the water is now over $600. Cops have gotten ahold of the landlord's attorney and said the issue will be resolved soon.
Also, a Tamarac, Florida woman recently called the police after she borrowed her landlord's laptop and found nude pictures of herself and young girls. William Raber installed a small camera in apartments to record tenants. The victim copied the images to a hard drive and went to cops. Raber had video of her getting dressed. He was charged with video voyeurism and 17 child pornography charges.
Have you ever had a horrible landlord? What terrible things did they do to you?
Yi! My husband refuses to hyphenate his last name. I asked him to hyphenate it because I feel that it is only fair, if I have to do it. He refuses. He says he couldn't respect any man that hyphenates his name. Why is this a big deal? I want my family to have one family name. I don't get why he is so stuck up on this. Why is it okay for me to change my name? Like I'm some sort of property of his. I won't do it, if he won't do it.
Is the woman taking the man's last name an outdated tradition? Should men take their bride's last name as well?
RADAR Online claims Ryan Reynolds recently stripped after a woman vomited on him during a flight. A source tells the site, "About two-thirds of the way into the flight, a young lady in front of him in 1D vomited toward her window, which then spewed back all over Ryan's beige cashmere sweater. The vomit looked like it was largely made up of red wine, and it made a huge stain on Ryan's sweater. So he took it off! They tried to pretend like nothing happened. The vomiting was quiet, and I think they were all going to try to just hide what happened, but the smell was rancid! Also, you couldn't help but notice Ryan taking off his shirt!"
Slacker had a friend that got stuck on a plane on the runway. When a plane is not in flight or at the gate, it doesn't have air conditioning. As the plane got hotter and hotter, his friend's kid got sick and threw up all over him. They had to sit in the hot plane covered in puke the entire time they were stuck on the runway!
Lil D was waiting for a plane once and saw a guy go crazy after missing his flight. He threw things all over the terminal and security had to get involved. The guy eventually got physical and they had to taze him!
What's the craziest or weirdest thing that's ever happened to you while traveling?
Bad Moms by Slacker and Steve,posted Oct 21 2013 8:14PM
A mom in Tarpon Springs, Florida was arrested after she bought alcohol for kids, and four ended up in the hospital with alcohol poisoning. The woman took three of the kids to a liquor store where she bought a bottle of Barcardi rum and Coke. She then brought them back to her home and served them drinks, including her own child. At one point, she went into her room to talk with her boyfriend on the phone and when she came back she found the kids vomiting. Four of the five kids were taken to local hospitals. She told cops she had made a "huge mistake" and wanted to be a "cool mom." She was arrested for child neglect.
Also, a 34-year-old Houston woman forced her 10-year-old boy to walk home along a busy freeway as a punishment. They were arguing and she got so frustrated she pulled over and ordered him to get out of the car. He walked on the shoulder of the interstate (I45) in the dark for about 15 minutes before cops showed up. She was arrested with another child in the car and both kids were released into the custody of their dad.
We know you’re a responsible, loving mom, but sometimes we all make mistakes. Did you forget your kid at school? Did you accidentally leave your wine out and they drank it? What things have you done that makes you a bad mom?
We got a facebook message from a guy that admitted his guilty pleasure is sitting in his wife's spot on the couch when she's gone for a few days.
Slacker admitted that he strips off all of his clothes as soon as he walks in the door when his family is gone. He will also drink straight from every container in the fridge. Lil D said his wife hates the dogs in bed, so he will let them sleep in the bed to warm it up when his wife is gone. Steve, of course, gets to do whatever he wants whenever he wants.
Do you indulge in any guilty pleasures when your spouse is away?
Yi Slacker and Steve,
My husband of 16 years died in a car accident a little over a year ago. I recently worked up the courage to start going through some of his stuff and moving on. As I was cleaning out a box of documents in the basement, I found about 10 love letters to and from another woman. There is no mention of anything physical but they without a doubt made their feelings for each other known. The letters were all dated and we were definitely married when they were writing them. I am so absolutely devastated. I have been mourning the loss of the most important man in my life for a year and now I feel like our relationship was a lie. I have no idea who the other woman is, but her address is on one of the envelopes. I feel like I need to know just how far things went between them. Should I go talk to her?
Should she try find out what was going on between them?
Bribe by Slacker and Steve,posted Oct 21 2013 8:12PM
Slacker tried to bribe his son into a prestigious school! Steve once tried to bribe his way into a club in Vegas that Lil Wayne was partying at.
Also, there is a new dating app that is being slammed as prostitution because it allows men to buy women gifts so they will go on dates. Carrot Dating allows users to dangle a carrot before women, be it flowers, jewelry, a tank of gas or even plastic surgery... in exchange for dates. The app was created by an MIT grad who also created similarly-controversial sites WhatsYourPrice.com, and leading 'sugar daddy' network Seeking Arrangement.
Have you ever tried to bribe someone? Did it work?
Getting out of a relationship can suck...and sometimes it's just easier to make the other person hate you so much they want to break up with you instead! We are talking about the lengths we go to avoid being the one to break their hearts.
Slacker and Steve say that they instead of breaking up they usually just disappear into the shadows instead of going through the trouble of actually breaking it off. Push her out by doing things that demean her and she will not like this change so she will likely break up with you for being a pig. They also suggest that you tell them you are really crazy religious all of a sudden. There is a break-up text app now that will do it for you.
You can do better we know it. How have you gotten someone to break up with you?
I used to hope that my ex-husband would cheat on me for real so I could get out of the marriage without my family being totally against me. He never got caught so I had to go through it anyways.
I'm going through a hard time right now, and I have a serious question for you guys. My dad is in the hospital, for the 6th time in 2 months. This time he was admitted to the ICU. On one hand, I want to be there with him, but at the same time, I have my own life to think about, and that includes college and my boyfriend. My father has done a lot for me in my life, even fought to get me out if the foster care system. But it's starting to get annoying how frequently I am going to the hospital now. He says he wants me to move back home with him, but he won't take care if himself. What do I do? Do I move back in with him, or do I stay where I am? Please let me know what you think I should do. Thank you, and God bless.
Slacker asks, how long can one put their life on hold for their loved ones? At some point you do have to live your own life. He says that he wouldn’t want to be this dad. Asking his kids to stop their life and take care of him is not fair.
Steve left to start his career when his mom was sick and he feels regret over this. Your allowed to make the choice to not be their constantly every time. When is there a point where enough is enough? The word annoying is a little cold.
What advice do you have for Candy?
My grandmother died last year and I went to see her twice before she died in California and she passed 2 weeks after I got home. I felt bad not being by her side in her final moments but I have my own responsibilities that I have to take care of too. I went back again for her funeral. Three trips are a lot but I owed her far more. I know she was sad to see me go but loves me enough to know and understand my situation. I am at peace with my decision.
This is difficult since you want to repay your loved ones for all that they have done for us. We are often in their debt so we should support them in every way we can. If this was my problem I would let him know that I love him and suggest that he get the medical help that he needs that I am not qualified to perform. Perhaps an in home nurse or an assisted living facility if he feels he needs help. I would offer to visit often and provide assistance in acquiring the needed help. If he refuses then it is no longer your fault.
When you're completely alone do you ever think about your quirks and think you are the only person in the world who does and thinks like you do? Well, it’s time to embrace the strange – because you are totally not the only person who does "that." Here’s a list of some popular things we do.
1. You spell out Wednesday like Wed-Nes-Day, February like Feb-Ru-Ary, because like Beca-Use friend like Fri-End and together like To-Get-Her in your head every time you write them.
2. When you are in a store just browsing, not buying, you start to get paranoid that security thinks you are a shoplifter.
3. You rehearse arguments or conversations in your head or out loud in front of a mirror in case they ever happen.
4. You have to find the perfect TV show or movie to watch before you can truly enjoy your in-front-of the-TV snack.
5. You always feel weird saying your own name out loud.
6. You will listen to a song on repeat to learn all the lyrics – especially the hard parts – in case you are ever around your friends and the song comes on.
7. You feel totally relieved when you get home and no one else is there yet.
8. You always check behind the bathroom shower curtain no matter whose bathroom you are in!
9. You put your iPod on shuffle, but end up skipping a bunch of songs to get to the one you want to hear anyway.
10. You feel guilty that you aren't helping when a repair guy is working at your house.
11. You wonder how many people you don't know have photos with you somewhere in the background.
12. You feel sad when you see an unwanted object on the side of the road like an old broken
chair or toy.
13. You wipe the smudge marks on your cell phone screen into patterns.
Slacker is always paranoid that employees think he is shop lifting when he is ‘just browsing’ in a store. He also knew a guy that would practice what he was gonna say before arguing with him. Not much use since now he knows what you’re going to say!
Steve feels guilty for not helping whenever someone comes to work on something at his house like repair guys or installation guys. He feels like he is being lazy when they are working and he is not.
Little D said that he re-lives his greatest lines over and over again. They keep him entertained sometimes for days.
Add to the list. What is something that you’re weird about?
I do some strange things like checking myself out when I walk by a large window. I lock the bathroom door even when I’m completely alone. When I wash my face in the sink I am paranoid that when I open my eyes there will be someone in the mirror standing behind me. Oh and I catch myself talking to myself all the time. Weird!
Kids who spend time in day care centers or with a nanny are more likely to have behavioral problems including hyperactivity. Researchers studied kids and adults who cared for them during the day-- whether it be a parent, a nanny/baby sitter or a day care center.
They found kids who spent more time in day care centers were more likely to be hyperactive.... while kids receiving more care by nannies or baby sitters were more likely to have peer problems.
Slacker and Steve say that in this day and age it is hard to stay home full time with our children. Most kids are in daycare. Slacker said his kid was great until he started pre-school when he was three. He thinks however he would have still become that same crazy kid no matter what. Combined powers of other children can cause the mischief to come out in our own. Slacker thinks that the daycares are taking the fall for the bad behavior.
Do you feel like this has happened to your kids? Does daycare in fact turn children into monsters?
Not all kids have these issues that are in daycare. I think it is a bold statement to say that. My daughter was babysat by my grandparents until she was 3 then day care after that and she is cautious and bright. My other daughter was in day care after I went back to work when she was 7 months old she is a social light and has no problems in school at all. Neither one of them are hyperactive. I think people are always looking for someone or something to point the finger at.
Don’t leave them alone because they are sure to get into trouble on way or another. Did your kid flood the house with bubbles when they put the wrong soap in the dishwasher? Did your husband let the kids bungee jump from the second story? Did your co-worker empty the company’s bank account by mistake?
Steve doesn’t bother reading the terms and conditions things online he just clicks “I agree” This can get you I trouble these days, says Slacker, since your kids probably know how to use your iPad better than you do. If you leave your kids alone with your devices then they will purchase things on it because they are kids. One story stated $680.00 in charges on their bill. Man drinking while wife is at the spa loses room key and decides to pull fire alarm.
Sometimes people just can’t be trusted to be alone… what happened when you left ‘em alone for one second?
My ex husband was left alone and got 3 young kids inebriated then my sister got seriously injured so I came to take her to the ER. Then he went home and couldn’t find his house key so he tried to get in through the window and broke one of the panes of glass. Then he decided to break in the door breaking the door jam. A neighbor saw the whole thing and called the cops. Swat surrounded our house and took him to the ground and cuffed him because they thought he was a burglar. I got a call in the ER.
Yi! My dad keeps intimidating my boyfriend. The other day I brought him back to my house for dinner. We went inside; my dad was sitting on the couch with a baseball bat watching some sort of war channel. I introduced them, but my Dad didn't even look at him. Needless to say, dinner was very awkward. My dad didn't even acknowledge his presence. MY boyfriend tried to keep talking to him, but nothing. The only words my Dad said was when he left. He said, "Get out." I’m 24 and tired of my dad being such a jerk to guys I date. Someone please help me. How do I get my Dad to stop?!
Slacker and Steve say that she is old enough to date at age 24. They also say it is hard to argue the logic of “it’s my house.” If she really doesn’t like it then she should move out. It is unfortunate that he has this attitude because even if she does move out she will still want her boyfriends or potential husband to meet her father at some point.
What do you think Laurel should do to get her dad to back off?
Dads are a hard egg to crack. He loves her and that is why he can’t stand another man coming into his baby girl’s life but she should let him know how damaging it is becoming to the relationship her father and her share and that it may result in him losing her forever. He may change his tune or at least express the reasoning behind why he acts in this way.
Amanda and John adopted a little girl a year ago and she is now 2 years old. Amanda thinks that she should be able to continue to sleep in their bed to create that bond of mommy and daddy as well as show her that it is a safe place and that she is loved. Little Sylvia didn’t have a good start. John feels that the child needs to be shown structure in that this is your room and your bed and this is where you sleep. He feels that the child can still feel loved and know that mommy and daddy are not going anywhere from her own room. John also feels that this has and will continue to interfere with their intimate relationship and could ultimately lead to a failed marriage for them.
Slacker doesn’t really like it when his kids end up in his bed with him and his wife. It is not comfortable.
Steve said that he is getting the feeling that Amanda could take or leave the intimacy with her husband. Amanda is doing it for her not for her baby. John has been replaced and that could lead to him being missing from the picture in the future.
What is your opinion? Baby in your bed? Or not? What advice do you have for john and Amanda?
My first daughter slept with us in our bed until she was three years old. She was our first and I had trouble telling her no when she said she was scarred. It was never where she started though we always encouraged her to sleep in her room. It did cause some issues with my ex and I, but eventually she wanted to stay in her own space.
Creep by Slacker And Steve,posted Oct 16 2013 6:41PM
A Tulsa man was arrested after maintenance workers found holes in the ceiling over his neighbor's apartment.
They also found a steak knife, pepper spray, woman's panties, a wig, used condoms, porn, and more in the attic.
The female resident told cops items had been disappearing from her apartment, over the past year.
It looks like he'd enter the attic from his apartment, then he cut a hole into the wall so he could crawl over to her attic and sneak down into her apartment.
He admitted to cutting the holes and to stealing her underwear.
He was arrested for burglary and being a peeping tom.
An Ohio woman was shocked when her male boss walked into the second-floor restroom and used the stall right next to her.
She was looking through an opening when she saw him walk in and take the stall next to hers. She verified it was him by checking out his shoes.
He went about his business, then washed his hands, and walked out never saying anything.
She called the cops but there's no word on whether he's in trouble at work.
Slacker tell the story about a woman that was once infatuated by him and she snapped a photo of Slacker and Steve in a bar. She did not talk to them but posted the pic up on facebook as if to say "I saw you today..." SUPER CREEPY!!
Steve shared a story about a celebrity he saw in line at a coffee shop that gave his number to the cashier for his rewards card and a lady in line behind him took down the number and called him later that day. CREEPY!
Have you ever been creeped on? Or Have you ever creeped on someone? What is your worst creep story?
I once a lady approached me in a bar and asked for a picture of me so that she could tattoo it on her body! CREEPY!
These are little details that every woman wishes her man would know and remember.
1. Her bra size.
2. Her daily coffee order.
3. The random thing she said last week when she thought you were ignoring her.
4. Her brand of tampons.
5. How she likes her eggs.
6. The sport she played in middle school that she was terrible at.
7. Her favorite grandparent when they passed.
8. How she met her best friend.
9. Her signature scent.
10. When she went through her Goth faze.
11. The name of her beloved child pet.
12. Her shoe size.
13. Her brand of shampoo.
14. The movie she loves to watch when she is sad.
15. Her favorite PMS food.
16. Her sibling's b-day.
17. Where she prefers to buy her underwear.
Slacker feels like if you describe your woman with numbers it is creepy cause it sounds like they are talking about a car not a person. Also thinks he would be poor at picking out a bra.
Steve used to bring coffee to his girlfriend and agrees when Slacker mentioned eggs as being important noting that you should have cooked them breakfast.
What do you really want your man to know? Does this stuff even matter? What is something that your man doesn't know about you that he should?
A fitness trainer in California is coming under some serious Facebook fire because of a photo that she posted on the social media site. The mother of three posted a picture of herself with each of her children below her - ages 8 months, 2 years and 3 years - while wearing a two piece and showing off her seriously fit body. The text above them is what's causing the controversy… it says: "What's your excuse?" People are responding in angry hoards, claiming she's fat-shaming women. While there are plenty that support, and applaud her, others say the commentary made by the text in the post is troublesome. The 32-year-old mother said she is hoping to inspire women and not make them feel hopeless.
Do you have a problem with it? Do you think it is in poor taste?
Rammed by Slacker and Steve,posted Oct 15 2013 9:03PM
A Georgia teenager got drunk and smashed his truck into Taco Bell… four separate times. The 19-year-old drove his pickup truck off the road and into a tree before rolling through a parking lot and slamming into the glass of Taco Bell. A cop responded and watched as the teen drove around the corner of the restaurant and crashed into the building again. He backed up and hit it a third time. The truck took off again, slamming into a woman's car, and then hitting the building a final time. The cop had to pull out his gun to get the kid to stop revving his engine. When he got out of the truck he said, "I'm sorry, but the gas pedal was stuck." He had a BAC of .142, well over the legal limit for driving. He was arrested and thrown in jail on three felonies.
Also, a survey revealed 64% of women have thought of ramming someone with their car, with half these women actually doing it. A Phoenix woman didn't like the new girl her ex was dating so she waited outside of the new girl's workplace, waited for her to get into her car then she rammed her car. Nobody was hurt.
Today's OPP is about 99% positive that her nephew stole an Xbox from her neighbor's house. Jessica told his mom about it and his mom said that he wouldn't do something like that. Now, our OPP doesn't know if she should turn her nephew in or let it go. She wants him to deal with the consequences but she also doesn't want to ruin his future.
A recent poll of married couples found that over 30% were let down by the way their significant other proposed. Many felt they would have liked it to be done at a more sentimental location with more romance or that it wasn't a good enough surprise. Others may have been okay with the proposal itself but it was the ring in the little black box that was a letdown. Between wanting a larger diamond or a different style cut or band there is plenty of room for disappointment. More than half also said that the act of going down on one knee isn't really needed during a proposal.
Were you upset with the way your man proposed? What happened?
Lowest Meal by Slacker and Steve,posted Oct 14 2013 9:50PM
Whether it's because you're broke or just lazy and haven't been to the store in a while, sometimes you have to eat some pretty weird things to survive. Slacker used to eat canned tuna and salsa. Steve used to eat mayo sandwiches.
A New York man had to get 30 stitches to his face, arms and legs after his toilet blew up. The water in the man's building had been turned off to do some plumbing work. The man wanted to see if the work was done so he flushed the toilet and that's when it blew up on him. The toilet exploded because pressure built up in a pipe that connected to the toilet. Three other toilets exploded.
Slacker split is eyebrow open on a urinal over the weekend. He was traveling with Steve and some other co-workers. When they got off the plane, everyone had to go to the bathroom. While everyone was standing at the urinals, Slacker decided to joke and told everyone he had to go number 2 and started to turn around. As he was turning, his sunglasses started to fall of his head and in an effort to catch them, he hit his head straight into the urinal. When he looked up he was bleeding everywhere.
Have you ever suffered an injury because of a toilet?
We talked to Grace last week...she had a guy ask her out on a first date, but he wanted her to come to his house for the date! She has an update...she went on the date to the guys house. Everything was great but the guy kept disappearing and then he would come back a few minutes later. Turns out, the reason he wanted her to come to the house is because he cares for his disabled brother and couldn't leave him home alone. Grace said that is a deal breaker for her! She can't be with someone that has to devote so much time to someone else. She said all of his attention will always have to be on his brother.
According to new survey sponsored by CarInsurance.com, if you lend your vehicle to a friend, he will snoop around in it. The survey found that 63 percent of people that had borrowed a car in the last two years opened the glove box, center console, trunk – or all of the above. Guys were worse than women here, with 73 percent of men admitting to peeking, compared with 44 percent of the surveyed women. Some of the things people admitted to finding in their borrowed cars included “surprising" photographs, guns, illegal substances, and liquor.
What is the worst thing that has happened when you let a friend borrow something?
A fan sent in a message saying she was upset at the fact that her daughter found out about a death in the family through facebook. She was mostly upset that she was unable to soften the blow of this sensitive subject for her child. She is asking that posting about tragic events be delayed long enough to allow for the family to be informed.
Steve says it is a nice thought but it is unlikely since social media is so popular these days.
Slacker reminds Steve about how he "stole his thunder" by telling people that he and his wife were going to have a baby before he had the chance.
What is the craziest news you have ever found out about on social network?
I once had a situation where my sister's husband was very sick and it was looking grim. Someone posted on facebook that he had died. I was pretty upset so I informed her of the facts and suggested that she remove the post so she didn't hurt family members and friends. He pulled through and is doing much better now. Some people will post things based on rumors and don't consider whether it is true or not or who it could hurt. I wish that would stop, but I do not expect it to.
Todays OPP is a young college student that moved back home because money was tight. Now she is ready to go back out on her own again but feels trapped. Her mother is bipolar and has been mentally terrorizing her daily saying how much she loves her and wants her around in one breath to calling her hurtful names and telling her to get out in her next. She has been going crazy because she wants to move on with her life but feels like she would be abandoning her sick mother if she does.
Slacker feels like no matter what his mom did to him he could never abandon her. He also notes that he is not, however, a young college student beginning their life.
Steve admits to some guilt he felt over leaving home to begin his career while his mother was ill. He also knows that his mother wanted him to suceed and it was an important step in his life that needed to be taken. Feeling that this may also be what our OPP needs to do also.
Should she stay for her mom or should she leave for herself? What advice do you have for her?
I feel like her mother should seek help for herself. It should not ALL fall on the child. She is in a transformation phase in her life and needs the support of her mother not guilt over wanting to create a life for herself. There is plenty that she can do living away from her mother. She does not have to live with her to be there for her.
We have all had bad relationships in the past. With all those emotions raging it is easy to get caught up in a bad situation. Strong feelings can make people do things they wouldn't even think of doing in their right minds. We are talking about bad Boyfriend/Girlfriends.
One woman shared about a bad boyfriend who cheated on her and got the other woman pregnant. She then took him back and he did it a second time. Steve feels like it was partially her fault the second time for allowing it to happen again.
Slacker shared a story about his ex-girlfriend. She pawned one of his favorite guitars. Don't worry, he got it back.
What is the worst thing a Boyfriend/Girlfriend has ever done to you?
Where to start I have had sooo many bad ones. One time my ex-boyfriend cheated on me with one of my much younger than me co-workers. Not that bad right? Well to sweeten the deal I was in the house at the time, passed out. Worse still it was at the end of my big birthday party. Think thats bad? The deed was done in my young daughter's bed (she was away for the night). Happy Birthday to ME!
Camped Out by Slacker and Steve,posted Oct 8 2013 5:13PM
Two men were shot outside a Wilmington, Delaware store Saturday morning while they were camped out waiting for the release of a new Nike Air Jordan sneaker. The shooting happened after an argument began. The victims were taken to a local hospital. One of the victims is in critical condition. About a dozen people were reportedly camped out waiting for the store to open with the release of the Air Jordan V "Bel-Air," which sells for $185 a pair. Despite the incident, people remained waiting for the store to open. Police are investigating the shooting. So far, no arrests have been made.
Both Slacker and Steve have never camped out for anything before. When Slacker was younger, he worked at a CD store that sold concert tickets. The first time Garth Brooks came to play there was a line all the way around the mall for tickets!
Have you ever been so passionate about something you camped out for it? What was it?
Naked by Slacker and Steve,posted Oct 8 2013 5:11PM
A 52-year-old man was busted after he was found wandering around naked in an alley near a school in Lancaster, OH. Cops were called early in the morning after people spotted the naked man walking near the school as kids were making their way there for classes. He told cops he had locked himself out of his house when he was trying to get his mail. He was arrested and taken to jail for public indecency.
Also, a Stuart, Florida couple recently called the police after their neighbor Robert Selle stripped naked in his yard and tossed a leather coat, a mailbox, a knife, a gate and a guitar at them and passing cars.
Grace joined us live on the air to share her OPP today. She met a guy at a bar and he asked her out on a date...but he wants her to come to his house for dinner. She's a little worried about it and is wondering if it's a good idea to go. She feels like they had a good connection and doesn't want to throw it all away because he asked her to do something out of the norm.
My Bad by Slacker and Steve,posted Oct 8 2013 3:58PM
An Oregon man was showing off his gun to a friend when dropped the weapon. It went off and shot his friend!
Also, Oktoberfest is in full- swing in Germany and, as you'd imagine, people are getting very, very drunk, and very drunk people often puke. Earlier this week, someone got very, very drunk and started projectile vomiting. A stream of vomit hit a tiny bird that happened to be flying by and knocked it to the ground. Then the puke dried on its wings and the bird couldn't fly. Honest mistake. The bird was eventually rescued and washed clean of the revelers "gently used" stomach contents.
Have you ever made an epic mistake that left you saying, "My Bad"?
We found a list of things that could potentially signal you have OCD. They are:
-- Order and symmetry are two extremely underrated things that you think about a lot, actually.
-- When it comes to cleaning, you're the only one who knows how to do it just right.
-- And even when you're in someone else's apartment, you feel the overwhelming need to fix things.
-- You know the importance of rituals — and the terror that awaits if you don't perform them.
-- You can be a bit of a hoarder.
-- Sometimes people say that you think about things "way too much," and deep down you know that they're right.
-- Your closet is organized by color and shade, because any other way would drive you insane.
-- Something that would be seemingly trivial to a normal person can destroy your entire day.
-- Whenever you tell someone about your OCD, you constantly worry that they'll think you're a total weirdo.
-- Constantly trying to even out your eyebrows, lipstick, and eyeshadow, even though it'll never be perfect enough.
-- You spend a lot of time washing your hands, and just seeing this makes you want to wash them for another half hour.
-- You become consumed with repeatedly checking things, something that you logically know is ridiculous.
-- Your friends are used to your panic attacks by now.
-- Having the same morning routine for getting ready, and being really mad when one of the steps gets compromised.
Do you do any of these things? What are your OCD tendencies?
Tim joined us live on the air to share his OPP today. He is a maintenance worker and is constantly put on jobs with another guy. Whenever they are on a job, the other guy will put his arm around him while they are discussing things or do that shoulder rub/massage thing to him. It makes him really uncomfortable and he thinks his co-worker might be trying to hit on him.
Do you think he's reading it to it too much? How do you deal with someone that is overly physical?
Smuggled by Slacker and Steve,posted Oct 7 2013 9:25PM
A JetBlue flight in Florida tried to smuggle 940 grams of heroin into Orlando International Airport by hiding it under her uniform. U.S. Customs and Border Protection did a screening of passengers and JetBlue employees who were traveling from Colombia. That's when officers found the drugs. She admitted to knowing she was carrying something illegal. She said she got the package in Colombia and was being paid $10,000 to smuggle the heroin. She was supposed to deliver it to a man and helped officers stage the delivery. Both of them will be in court soon.
Also, a recent list of the top 10 things you'll never get through customs just came out. They are:
1. Absinthe--Modern absinthe is different from the low-quality, toxic stuff made with poisonous metal salts and associated with hallucinogenic properties. However, it's still illegal to bring certain kinds of absinthe in from other countries because of a lack of regulation. Bottles that claim to contain 10 parts per million or more of the chemical thujone are no-nos.
2. Certain plants (and crafts made from plants)--Prepare to present any plant item that you want to bring into the States to a customs officer for inspection. You'll need a permit even for items like nursery stock, seeds and cut flowers with berries attached. Other things, like "noxious weeds," aren't allowed at all. Apply online for a USDA Plant Protection and Quarantine permit to bring acceptable plants into the states or check if they're prohibited. Permits take 30 days or more to process and are good for up to three years.
3. Ivory (including jewelry made from ivory)—You'll need a permit from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to bring any ivory into the country, due to the Endangered Species Act. You can import an antique ivory item if you have special documentation showing it's more than 100 years old, but because of poaching, any object that's younger isn't allowed.
4. Ancient artifacts--So many items have been stolen from museums and churches that any ancient artifact requires an export permit. The U.S. National Stolen Property Act prevents people from legally owning a stolen item.
5. Big souvenirs from Cuba, Iran, or much of Sudan--Economic sanctions prevent visitors from bringing items back from these countries. You can apply for a license from the Office of Foreign Assets Control if you wish to import something, but it's rare that you'll get one. There are a few exceptions, like books, magazines, films, photographs, posters, art and music are okay, so are small gifts worth less than $100.
6. Meat-based products (even soup mix)--Bush meat made from African wildlife and anything with meat products—like bouillon, soup mixes, etc.—from most countries could introduce serious pathogens into the U.S. and spread conditions like foot-and-mouth disease, African swine fever, mad cow disease and the avian flu. That goes for canned and dried meats, too.
7. Most fruits and vegetables--One small piece of fruit carried onto an airplane caused the great California Mediterranean fruit fly outbreak of the early 80s. It threatened the state's agriculture and set the federal government back $100 million. If you plan to bring fruit back, the USDA has a long list of what's allowed.
8. Some Haitian goat hide drums—Some goat-skin drums aren't treated properly and have been tied to a cutaneous anthrax case. That put them on the Centers for Disease Control's restricted list. Same goes for some African drums. If you get your own personal drum, make sure it's been tanned so it's non-infectious.
9. Designer knockoffs and cartoon-character paraphernalia--Fake Chanel bags and almost real Mickey Mouse souvenirs are subject to U.S. copyright and trademark protections. The government is so serious about enforcing this that your merchandise could be seized.
10. More than $10,000 cash—You'll have to report the cash first. Smuggling "bulk currency" is the kind of thing drug traffickers do, so U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement doesn't like it. Money orders, travelers' checks, and foreign coins count, too. To bring your money in legally, get the Report of International Transportation of Currency of Monetary Instruments from a customs officer. If you don't, you could face up to five years in jail.
A pregnant woman was refused a drink at a pub and then asked to leave by staff who said they were protecting her unborn child. Caroline Williams, 26, who is five months pregnant, says she felt humiliated by the treatment. She said: 'I was on a rare night out with some friends. I had a pint of lager and a friend offered to get me another half - that was going to be my limit. 'He was refused service because it was for me and when I later took a sip from another friend's glass the assistant manageress asked me and my friends to leave.
Pubs have the right to refuse to serve customers and do not need to give a reason for doing so. An assistant manageress confirmed she had asked Mrs. Williams to leave. She described her as 'a heavily pregnant lady who was drinking alcohol'. Another staff member defended the decision, adding: 'The assistant manageress was only thinking of the welfare of the mother and child.'
What do you think, is it perfectly okay for businesses to refuse service?
Picture this: You’re standing outside the pearly gates. You’re about to enter but right before you do, they slam in your face and someone says, “I’m sorry you can’t come in because that one time you _____.”
Steve says that he did something bad and then blamed the family dog for it and the dog was then euthanized for the deed.
Slacker says he knows people that have used disabled individuals to get ahead of others in lines at amusement parks. Others still pretend to be disabled in order to get better tickets to concerts and ball games.
What is keeping you from getting through those pearly gates? Tell us the top reason why you’re going to hell!
Personally there is a list too long to share them all. Let’s just say trouble is my regular job.
“Yi! My fiancé and I are facing a problem... I have one 3 yr old boy and baby girl on the way. My grandmother has been married to an alcoholic for over 23 years. We had an episode where his drinking went too far and we already told him he couldn't ever be around the children because we're not willing to put their well-being at risk...... he recently decided to start rehab (not his 1st time either) and has been sober at least over 45 days. The problem we have is grandma is pushing for my son and (when she arrives) our daughter to spend time with her and him! We have decided to stick our ground and not let him be a part of our lives because he has done the same drunk routine since before I was born. But it’s destroying mine and my grandmother's relationship, I'm stuck on what to do we both need advice I love her but she's so overly mad I won't let him in the picture.”
Both Slacker and Steve think Grandpa has lost any respect he may have had with his granddaughter because of his actions. She’s the mother of small child and has another on the way, so she needs to put her children first and do what she can to protect them.
What advice do you have? When should she start trusting Grandpa again?
Slacker was shopping the other day and got into a discussion with his wife about the ending of Breaking Bad. Since it’s been about a week since the finale he figured everyone already knows what happens- and if they don’t it’s his own private conversation so he can talk about whatever he wants- he openly talked about the ending… little did he know a lady in close earshot hadn’t seen the end and completely flipped out on him.
Steve thinks the lady has every right to be mad, but Slacker still believes it’s on her because she was listening to his conversation.
What surprises have you ruined? Or what surprises have been ruined for you?
The ending of Harry Potter was ruined for me. It wasn’t just the end, though. Because people can’t control themselves I found out what other characters die throuhgout the book as well. Good times.
There was a car crash near Slacker's house and sadly one of the drivers died. Now, there is a make-shift memorial on the side of the road that he passes every day as he's taking his son to school. His son is young and hasn't really ever had to deal with death before. He has been asking why there are balloons and stuffed animals on the side of the road. Slacker is not sure that he should tell his son that someone died there.
One of Slacker's friends, who happens to be a psychologist, advised that Slacker has a dinner with his son where they sit him down and explain what death is.
Do you think this is a good idea? Have you talked to his kids about death?
Lazy by Slacker and Steve,posted Oct 1 2013 7:06PM
Reddit recently asked how lazy you are when it comes to everyday life. Among the answers: "I ordered underwear from Amazon because I didn't want to do laundry." "I live behind a Chinese restaurant. I call in a delivery order and have them hand my order to me over the back fence." "I wore pants in 100 degree weather because I didn't want to shave my legs.
Yi!! So I have a pretty urgent OPP for you, and could really use your awesome expertise with advice! About a month ago, my friend and I went out for a girl's night at a hotel. I'm not really a big drinker and am always the DD, so I usually stop at a glass of wine or two. Well, my friend ordered a bottle of wine and a long island for me to drink. I told her I couldn't possibly drink all that, but I felt guilty and drank a couple glasses thinking the night was early and I could definitely sober up with some water by the time we got home. Well, about two glasses of wine and a long island later, I ended up spending the night throwing up and didn't leave the bathroom at all and was so dizzy I couldn't stand. Eventually, my friend grabbed me from the bathroom (she had been in the bar talking to a guy all night) and said she had gotten us a room. I was so sick I couldn't think straight so I just followed. We got into the room and that same guy was there! She had gotten a $700 suite because she was drunk and didn't realize the price, and had met this guy hoping he would pay for it! I passed out and don't remember a thing, but found out the next morning that they had relations in the room while I was sleeping. She's having some money problems now and is saying I should split the bill with her because it was my fault we had to get a room because I was drunk and was the one supposed to be driving!! She's a friend of mine and I don't want to lose that friendship so I haven't challenged her on it... but honestly, do I owe her half that money? If it were me, I would have gotten a taxi or something, not booked a room! She is asking me for the money every day. Please help!! Love you guys, Candy
Do you think Candy should have to pay for the hotel room?
I Never by Slacker and Steve,posted Oct 1 2013 7:04PM
Think of all the unseen cat photos and videos and memes and tumblrs! It turns out that 15% of adults do not use the Internet at all. A third of non-users say they aren't interested - as in they do not want to have it or do not see a need for it. Another third say it's too difficult or frustrating. Other common complaints are that they fear malware on their computer, don't have physical access to the Internet or that it's too expensive. Much of this could be related to age as 44% of adults 65 and older don't use the Internet.
Steve has never taken a selfie. Slacker has never ridden in a helicopter.
