The Straw that Broke the Relationships Back
Yi!
Before a breakup there’s usually an event that pushes one of the people over the edge causing them to end the relationship. Whether it’s a small mistake or big event, it’s what causes them to draw the line and end the relationship. A woman was in the car with her boyfriend when she got in an accident with a cement truck that dumped cement all over her car. Her boyfriend saved himself and got out of the car safely. However, the woman was stuck in the car for 40 minutes before rescuers got her out with minor scrapes and bruises. It can only be assumed she didn’t stay in the relationship with him.

Slacker thinks her boyfriend was just acting upon instinct by saving himself. He thinks that moment was the one that decide the destiny of their relationship. The boyfriend’s decision in that situation declared what would happen to their relationship.  He thinks that Steve ends relationships before something even happens to send him over the edge.

Steve was sent over the edge when he was on a date with a girl and she chewed her food loudly. He thought everything else was perfect about her but; he could not handle the way she ate in public. He says he catalogs reasons he breaks up with women so in the future he knows what not to look for.

What event has caused your relationship to snap?

Snoop on the Kids
Yi!
Today’s OPP is from Tessa

Yi! I remarried in December and now live with my husband, two dogs and six tweens and teens. My husband and I are privately fighting over whether or not to snoop through our kids' rooms. I think it's ok and almost necessary in today's world. There are a lot of dangers in today’s world that we didn’t face as kids. He disagrees and thinks kids should make mistakes and then learn from them. I’d rather protect the kids before it’s too late. Who's right - me or him?
Tessa
Slacker says his parents wouldn’t have had much to find if they snooped in his room. He thinks spying is more accepted now because life has become much more public due to social media.  He wonders if the parents want to search their social media accounts or just the items in their rooms. He thinks he’s hypocritical because he wouldn’t have wanted his parents to snoop in his room but wants to do so to his kids.

Steve thinks spying on kids is a good idea. However he’s glad his parents didn’t spy on him when he was younger. He doesn’t regret the things he did when he was younger, that his parents would have gotten mad at him for, had they spied on him. He thinks the parents are outnumbered in the situation but should still search the rooms.

Do you think they should search their kid’s rooms?

I think the kids have a right to their own privacy. Unless the parents are worried their kids are in life threatening danger there’s no need or reason to search the rooms

Weird Urges
Yi!
Whenever Slacker is on an airplane he gets the weird urge to open the emergency door. He’d never actually open it but get’s the urge to whenever he rides on an airplane.
 
Slacker no longer wants to sit in the exit row on planes because he hates the urge he gets to open the door.  Yet he is desperate to know what would happen if the emergency door was actually opened.  He wants to know if people would get sucked out like in the movies or if the inflatable slide would pop out.

Steve has always wanted to kick over a row of motorcycles when they’re lined up outside of a bar/restaurant. He knows he’d suffer serious consequences but still wants to see it happen.  He says he probably wouldn’t survive if he knocked over the biker's motorcycles but would like to see the domino effect of the bikes falling one after the other.
 
What’s a weird urge that you’ve had?

Whenever I’m driving next to a semi truck I always want to drive my car under them to the other side like in those race car movies. My cars to big to do it and my driving skills probably wouldn’t get me to the other side but I always want to try it.

Ask Us Anything
Yi!
Slacker and Steve always try to be open and honest on the show. However they know there are some things you don't know about them that you've always wanted to.

Slacker says some people don’t know that the meaning of Yi!, came from a woman who called and accidentally said yes and hi at the same time. He says it caught on that day and people continued to say Yi so now they use it on the show. He says he used to be in a band called Intense that never even got a Wikipedia page. His girly guilty pleasure is a facial.

Steve who was asked why he has such a macho front says he doesn’t put up a front it’s just his natural behavior. He says many people have thought he’s gay due to the fact he lives alone and has date woman with names that could be for men or women. However he is in fact straight. He is also embarrassed about his first name which is Murray.

What question have you always wanted to ask Slacker and Steve?

I would like to know why they don’t call the show Michael and Murray since those are their real names.

Roommates From Hell

Yi!

Living with a roommate can be a fun and amazing experience. You can get along with your roommate, and become great friends. Or you could end up living with Satan’s Spawn and be living in a nightmare.
Slacker regrets having the bottom bunk bed in college because his roommates always had relations on his bed. He thought it was a good idea at the time not having to climb up the bunk, but now regrets it. His friend had a roommate who was always considerate, and respectful, until one night he had relations on his bed after drinking his booze. His friend made him move out after that night.
Steve thinks that having relations in a roommates bed is the quickest way to get them to move out. He thinks it’s obvious that you shouldn’t choose the bottom bunk in college if you don’t want your roommate using it for other reasons. It may seem like a smart idea not having to climb up the bunk at night but in the end it will be worth it.
What’s your story of the roommate from hell?
 
The only roommates I’ve ever had have been my two older twin brothers. The worst things they’ve done are left the toilet seat up and forgotten to flush. Thankfully that’s the worst roommate situation I’ve had and hopefully I won’t have any more.

OPP: Dating With Cancer

Yi!

Today’s OPP is from Christine
Yi! I have been divorced for approx. 6 yrs. Shortly after my divorce I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I went through all of the horrible chemo’s, radiation, and surgery and so on at that time. Did well for about a year after all of that and then discovered the cancer came back and was stage 4. That was in 2010 and I’ve been doing chemo every couple weeks since. If you met me and didn’t know I had this going on, you would never guess that I have cancer. As lucky as I have been and blessed with many other things, I am single and really want to meet someone. I have not dated in 6 yrs! I am independent and am not looking for someone to come along and take care of me, financially, emotionally or any other way. I just want to meet someone to go out with and maybe one day have a relationship again. Except this cancer thing has prevented me from doing so. And not because I’ve been sick but because I just don’t know when to tell someone about it. Of course I figure it is a pretty big deal and it is only fair to let someone know up front what they are getting into. But on the other hand, it’s a personal thing and how do you just say something like that on a first date or do I have to bring it up before the first date?
Christine
Slacker thinks that it may make the date instantly uncomfortable and that would be the only subject to talk about. He doesn’t think it’s something casual and easy to bring up so it might make the rest of the date awkward.  He thinks she should tell them if the relationship starts to get more serious but not necessarily on the first date.
Steve would appreciate her honesty but he doesn’t think it’s fair to the person on the date. It would make for an uncomfortable first date. He thinks the date deserves to know she has cancer but not if she isn’t in it for a relationship. If she just wants a one night date then they probably don’t need to go. But if she sees if going further in the future then she should definitely tell them.
 
Do you think she needs to tell people she’s dating, and when is the right time to tell them?

I think she should tell them right when she meets them but ease into so they’re aware of it before the date. That way the date wouldn’t be uncomfortable and she wouldn’t feel like she's hiding it.

GMD: Move Closer to College
Yi!
Don and Lisa’s daughter is graduating and going to college in California. Lisa wants to move to California to stay close to her daughter since they have a good relationship. Don thinks they need to give their daughter her space since she chose a school far away in the first place.
Slacker wants to know if it’s easy for them to move to California or if they would have to sacrifice jobs and other responsibilities. He was offered numerous scholarships to other colleges but chose to stay in state to be close to home. He wonders if their daughter purposely chose California to get away from home. He thinks if she knows her daughter well enough then she may be right.
Steve wonders why they can’t move somewhere in California. Not right by the campus but at least close enough for her to drive home when she needs to. He thinks Lisa sounds like a great mom but Don is just trying to consider what’s best for his daughter at this stage in her life.
Do you think they should move with their daughter or stay where they are?

I think their daughter should decide whether she wants her parents to move to California with her or not. My brother went to college in Hawaii and got homesick after a few months. I think it'd be smart for her stay close to her parents if she does get homesick. In the end it's all her decision whether she wants them there or not

Annoying Things About Your Significant Other
Yi!
There will always be something about your spouse that drives you absolutely nuts. A new study came out that rolling your eyes in an argument with your significant other actually means your relationship could be rocky. Experts say that it is better to scream and argue ‘til the death than to roll your eyes in a relationship because that means you are just dismissing their opinion.

Slacker wonders if he rolls his eyes at people, even his wife. (He does.) He knows he has a bad habit of leaving doors open. He thinks it starts with his garage door when he got an alarm system that chimes whenever you open it because it became annoying. He doesn’t even close the bathroom door….that’s awkward.

Steve thinks it is stupid that rolling eyes are the most annoying thing. But he never rolls his eyes. He sighs, sometimes.

Lil’ D says they need to have an intervention with his wife because she is a chronic drawer-leaver-opener. Every single time he has to go close all the cabinets, and dresser drawers. He says him and Slacker could never be married. He also said that he is a brushing teeth in the shower kinda guy. His wife does not and uses his tooth paste and it makes him have to get out of the shower and go get it. Annoying!

What is that one thing about your significant other that drives you insane?

My boyfriend sings very loud and gets so into the song like his life depends on it. It is cute because he is so into singing, but it is so loud sometimes, I wanna punch him.

Mad Moms
Yi!

Mothers, above all, have that mama bear instinct to protect their kids no matter what. That's what Ruth Perkins thinks anyway. She showed up to her kid's high school and physically threatened a chemistry teacher shoving her up against a wall. When the teacher tried calling for help, Perkins knocked the phone off the teacher’s desk and hit a cell phone out of the teacher’s hand! Perkins was arrested minutes later in the parking lot and the teacher is okay.

Slacker’s mom was driving his brother’s truck and everyone thought it was his brother driving around. People were flipping the truck off and his mom grabbed a glass milk bottle at these cars who insulted her baby. He says don’t come in between a woman and her cub.

Lil’ D says that when he was in middle school the bus driver had a daughter on the bus and someone was bullying her. This bus driver stopped the bus in the middle of traffic, picked up the girl that was bullying her daughter, and put her out on the curb and drove off! Mad mom!

What crazy motherly instinct has driven you to extremes?

My mom was very upset I was getting bullied at school, so she grabbed a bat and headed out the door to go beat some people up. Gotta love her.

OPP: Dating the Boss's Daughter
Yi!

Allie’s son is dating her boss’s daughter. This is just asking for trouble. She is worried that if her son breaks his girlfriend’s heart, her job could be in jeopardy because her boss has already made comments to her about the situation. She doesn’t know what to do and needs your help! What should Allie do?

Slacker says this isn’t typical, but in no way shape or form you should let romance and work intertwine. He says if the daughter breaks up with her son then she is in the clear. He asks Allie if she raised her son to be respectful and a gentleman and she replied yes, of course. Teenage love is very hard. He says it was a colossal mistake for her to let this happen. She replied that they met at school, and it just so happened she was her boss’s daughter.

Steve says don’t ever mix work with pleasure and this is exactly what’s happening. He said that this possibly could get her demoted, fired, or something. He says Allie has to play cupid and he has to get the girl to break up with him so that Allie isn’t in jeopardy.

What should Allie do?

I think she should talk to her boss and make it clear that they are young and high school love usually doesn’t last. She needs to have her own back.

Slacker's Son is a Bully
Yi!

Slacker's worst nightmare as a parent has come true. His son is getting in trouble at school due to bullying. He has already talked to his son, but wants to know how else to handle the situation.

Slacker says he isn’t in a good place. He doesn’t mind if his son were being bullied, but given the choice being on the receiving end of it, then he would take the receiving end. He knows that sounds horrible, but every parent hates this. Everyone knows that Slacker is funny and his son is trying to follow in his footsteps. Apparently 2 other kids were being mean to another kid, but Noah, his son, was trying to be funny and tried making jokes at the kid who was being “bullied.” --which was not physical, but more verbal. He now doesn’t know how to handle this because he doesn’t want him to continue this in school.

Steve says that he was snarky and if we labeled it as something in today’s standards it would be labeled bullying. He regrets some of his comments and actions because he was doing it to be funny and sometimes out right mean. He regrets some of it.

What did you do when your kid bullied someone else?

I was bullied a lot throughout elementary and middle school, but my mother taught me to stick up for myself using physical violence. Now, I know what you’re thinking-- that is definitely not the way to handle it but ultimately, it was what stopped the girls from bullying me. One swift punch to the nose, and “leave me alone!” worked quit well. I was never bullied again.

Takeaway Thieves
Yi!
Yahoo.com has released a story saying napkins and beer glasses are just some of the things people steal from restaurants. One restaurant in Alexandria, Virginia claims that the silver pig-shaped napkins holders are what disappears the most. At the same restaurant the women love the purse hooks and they end up getting stolen, making the restaurant lose $30 every time one disappears.

Slacker claims he has stolen crushed red pepper and parmesan packets, and has single handedly brought back the Moscow Mule because of the copper mugs he has. Everyone has tried a Moscow Mule at his house. He admits he has stolen beer glasses from everywhere. His entire house was filled with them.  If he is in the safe vicinity of a woman’s purse he will put stuff from the restaurant in her purse, so that when she gets home she’ll be very confused.

Steve claims that Slacker is the worst thing at this. He claims that the businesses factor that stolen stuff into the budget so they can make up for losses, making it okay.

What have you stolen from restaurant?

I stole an entire menu one time. Just because.

First Date Disasters
Yi!
The one tradition that decides a couple’s fate is the first date. Some are awesome and 2 people have a great connection, others are quite awkward and everything goes wrong. Some are embarrassing, some we don’t even want to recall in our memories.

Slacker says the guy should always plan and court the woman on a first date. He will never understand why people go to the movies for dates. You can't tall or anything. He says watch a movie at your house. He asked this girl out to a date to Mexico for their first date. He got married to that same woman. He loves when a dinner lasts 3 hours, and he knows servers will hate him for that. He likes to get an appetizer, a bottle of wine, and take his time getting to know someone.

Steve is a serial first dater. He claims he is seen with a different lady every night, jokingly. He has never planned a date with a girl's input. He usually picks the dates.

What is your first date disaster?

I had a guy pick me up in a beat up old Bronco, but I wasn’t quick to judge. I get in, and it was summer, my window wouldn’t roll down because the lever was broken off. Cool.  Once we got to the theatres, I paid for my own ticket thinking, “Okay…” and then in the movie we acted like we didn’t even know each other. We didn’t touch; look at each other, or anything. Not that horrible, but it still is in my brain. Oh and to top it off, he ran out of gas in front of my house. Very awkward.

OPP: He Doesn't Want Kids
Yi!
So, I have been married before and think I have finally found the one, despite how afraid I am. The catch is though, he does not want kids. He says that he doesn't want them since he had a bad experience; his mother owned and operated a daycare out of their home while he was growing up and is now opposed to the thought of having kids. Since I work in the nursery at my church, I can understand where he is coming from, since young children get exponentially worse when you put them with other children. 
We wouldn't even consider having kids for a few years at least since I just returned to school. But, in your experience, especially being men, do you think it is possible he would change his mind in a few years after we are married? 
Thank you so much.
Sarah
 
Slacker thinks it really hard to change a guy. During the time in his life when he was in a band he wanted to relate with as many possible and never wanted children. He never let himself say the sentence “I don’t ever want kids.” He knew a couple that didn’t want children. Ever. They went out all the time and one day she wanted kids, and he came around to the idea. They ended up having children. 

Steve says that is a gamble she has to take. He is great with Slacker’s children and treats them as family, but he will never change his mind about wanting kids

What advice can you give Sarah?

I don’t know if I would pressure him to have the conversation about kids. If he doesn’t want them, then he doesn’t want them. Yikes. I don’t know Sarah.

Addicted
Yi!

Jakki Ballan of England admits being addicted to Diet Coke. She drinks 50 cans a day and has spent $250,000 over the last three decades on the drink. She is now claiming she has hallucinations and that the addiction is taking over her life. She is down to one bottle and is panicking and pacing around the house.

Slacker can’t wrap his brain around being obsessed with something like that, especially that much. He gives Steve crap because he cleans her car so much that he thinks he is addicted to it.

Steve says Slacker smells like rumple mints all the time… are you an alcoholic Slacker? He says, yes, like to keep my car clean. It cost him $13 and sometimes he washes it twice a day. He likes Star Trek but he is not addicted, he just likes it.

What are you addicted to?

I am addicted to coffee. If I don’t have coffee once a day I freak out. Speaking of coffee,  I’m  going to go get a cup.

Damage doing the Deed
Yi!

TLC has come up with a new show called: Sex Sent Me to the ER. Gregg weighing in at 440lbs. was a virgin and his girlfriend Jenn who weighs in at 110lbs., had relations. He sent her head flying through the sheet rock during the heated moment of passion. She asked why he stopped and he thought he was going to have a heart attack.

Slacker is hysterically laughing while this topic is airing. He also thinks this is amazing. There was a time when glass furniture was very in. He had a matching set of this furniture and this glass was supposed to be really thick. Well, they were getting hot and heavy and he picked up the girl and the impact of setting her down on the table broke the glass and she had cuts all over her. They never had relations on it ever again.

Steve claims this is their topic and TLC has gotten it from them. He has the fake flicker candles in his house because he knows how dangerous he would be with real candles.

What damage have you done doing the deed?

OPP:It's a Fake
Yi!
Yi guys! I work in a jewelry store and my best friend asked me to get her wedding ring appraised for insurance reasons. I haven't been there very long, so I asked the owner to look at it. This is probably where I should tell you how much my best friend loves her ring. It is her most prized possession and I have never seen her happier than when she got it from her husband. The owner looked at it, and he told me that it's basically worth as much as the metal of the band because it's not a real diamond. I don't know what to say to her because she is going to be devastated. How to I tell her that her prized possession is not real?
Jessica
 
Slacker he said he doesn’t even want to deal with this OPP because it makes his heart hurt. The first question that pops into his mind that you assume the husband knows right? He said that it is the Jessica’s responsibility that the ring isn’t real. If he went out and bought a fake Louis V bag then he would definitely not tell her it was..However, if she asked then he would fess up to it.  

Steve said this OPP is definitely icky. Yes, there is a chance he didn’t know but all women, you’d think would get their ring appraised. What’s sad is that a lot of women can tell the difference between ZZ and real diamonds.

What should Jessica do?

I think she should just take her friend to lunch and tell her, “hey listen, so I had the ring looked at, and it is fake.” Just do it. If he did know, then he is scum.

Server Scams
Yi!

A waitress was tipped $6,000 because she told a man that she couldn't afford her tuition any more. He wrote her a check and went on his way, but come to find out that she was lying the entire time! He wrote her two separate checks and was so moved by her life story that he looked her up at Florida Gulf Coast University. She was never enrolled there! He cancelled the checks and never talked to the girl again.

Slacker says that this must happen a lot. He gets Chili’s To-Go a lot. Every time he goes in there the bartender compliments his jacket and he says it is the trashiest jacket he has ever worn. He says it bothers him because every single time he goes in there, she does it.

Steve said that he was at Red Lobster and the man complimented his jacket, and then he heard him compliment the other people on the other side of the bar. It is totally a tactic to get more of a tip. He knows a girl that adds stuff to people’s bill when they’re drinking so that the total is higher and she gets bigger tip.

What server scam have you committed to get a bigger tip?

I told a table that the reason I lost my voice is because I was at the Special Olympics, but I was really at a concert. I got a nice tip after that… I know what you’re thinking, what a scum bag. But you know what servers put up with a lot from people and work hard for their money. I haven’t done it since, but I will never forget how awful I felt after.

I've been bitten
Yi!
There are tons of stories in the news of people being bitten by both animals and humans! A man’s brother bit his ear off when they were rough housing at a party! They’d had a few drinks and were wrestling when things got ugly. His brother bit his ear and then knocked him out! They’re both okay but the ear is permanently disfigured! Another man bit off his father’s eyebrow while they were driving home from a wedding! The son attacked the dad while he was driving so he pulled over and they began to fight. When police arrived they noticed the dad’s eyebrow had been bitten off! The son had to be tasered and the father taken to the hospital but both are okay now. At a photo shoot for her new music video, Lady Gaga was nipped by slow loris (small primate). They were using the animal in a scene for her video but after it nipped her it was taken away from the video set.

Slacker thinks the ear is a strange yet common place to bite someone. If you’re going to bite someone bite them where it’s not visible. He also gets scared around donkeys because he thinks they’ll bite him when he goes to resorts that make you ride donkeys.He wonders why human bites are almost more common than animal bites.

Steve wonders why Lady Gaga could not escape the slow loris when it’s named after its speed. He thinks it’s easy to bite someone when you have them locked in a bear hug, which is why he thinks the ear is such a common place to bite a person.

What’s your bizarre story of being bitten?

I was bitten on the back by a horse when I was a little girl. It broke skin and was bruised for a few days but I still love riding horses!

Red Light Ticket Trouble
Yi!
Candy was spending time with a work husband/coworker her husband asked her not to hang out with. She told him she'd quit hanging out with her co worker but got a red light ticket with him in the car on the way to a work event!

Slacker thinks she should have stopped him from riding in the car with her in the first place. It’s partially her responsibility for allowing him to ride with her. Even if it’s a innocent act she shouldn’t have risked jeopardizing her marriage. He thinks she should intercept the ticket before he does. He doesn’t believe her act is completely innocent.

Steve doesn’t think the truth is good enough and that he won’t believe her. But he thinks the truth would be the only way to go about the situation. He doesn’t think the husband will believe what she’ll tell him but he thinks it’s the only choice she has. He thinks a lie would make the situation even worse and possibly jeopardize the marriage even more.

What do you think she should do?

I don’t think the act sounds completely innocent. I think if she respected her husband and their marriage enough she would have never gotten in the car with him. Obviously she didn’t honor his request and there has to be more reason behind it than a simple car ride.

What should I do to marry a rich guy?
Yi!
A woman wants to find a rich man to marry with a wealthy salary. She even went online asking other rich men for advice on where to find rich guys and how to marry them!

Slacker thinks we should go back to cave man times where the men did the hunting and the women did the gathering. Where men and women both did their share of work.He doesn’t know if the CEO is legit, but thinks there are plenty of gold diggers in the world. He thinks gold diggers get all the material things in relationships except for the marriage.

Steve thinks gold diggers get into the relationships but don't get to marry the person they’re gold digging off of. He thinks the rich people will date the gold diggers but will never commit to a marriage with them.

What’s your gold digging experience?

I think people should work for the money and things they have without feeding off of other people’s success! I think as women we need to be capable of taking care of ourselves and not relying on a man for money!

Accidentally Taking Drugs
Yi!
A man in Spain along with 10 others was hospitalized after eating a birthday cake baked with marijuana. The man went into a comatose state after eating the cake and was treated for irregular heartbeat. It is unknown if the man had underlying heath issues or if it was the weed that put him down.

Slacker says this sounds terrible. He tells Lil’ D’s story about working at a fast food chain and a guy offered him a hit of weed and he took it, but he felt a little funny. So the guy ended up telling him that the weed was laced with meth. How awful! He says if anyone tried tricking him into doing drugs he would be very mad because he would want it to be under his discretion. He has gotten roofied before, but what was even worse is he found his parent secret chocolate stash and it was laxatives. He pooped for days.

Steve says he willingly took drugs. He says Slacker has accidentally taken brownies from the stations bake table, but Slacker denies everything.

Have you ever been accidentally drugged?

I Never
Yi!
When your life starts you make memories doing the same things and watch the same movies but, there are those people that never do stuff that a lot of people usually do or have seen.
 
Slacker his parents still believe in cash transactions. They don’t go to ATM’s. They never use the credit card gas machine because they always just pay in cash. He doesn’t even think they know their pin number.  He has never been to a Red Lobster. He grew up poor, but he never went even when he could afford it. He went from Long John Silver’s to Sushi restaurants. He completely leap frogged Red Lobster.

Steve has never been in a Taco Bell. Or eaten it-- ever. He hates Mexican food. Even being half Hispanic, he cannot eat it.

What have you never done?
I have never seen Fight Club, nor have I been to Vegas. I know sad, sad life of Nikki.

OPP: I Want A Divorce
Yi!
Yi,
I have been married for 10 months and I realize now it was a mistake. I got caught up in the whirlwind of lust and jumped into it too fast. I'm not in love with him and only reason I'm still with him is because my parents spent a small fortune on our wedding. I don't want them to feel like they wasted their money on me. I'm unhappy but I'm willing to stay if I have to. What should I do? 
Hannah
 
Slacker doesn’t know what anyone is going to tell this woman. She can’t just stay because she doesn’t love him. That would be awful for the man. How does one stay married when you’re miserable? He knows other people that have stayed married because their parent looked down on divorce. He thinks Hannah feels like she’d be a disgrace. If his brother never got divorced first, then he wouldn’t have gotten divorced because he didn’t want to be the first disappointment to his parents.

 Steve thinks that Hannah feels bad for wasting her parent’s money and disgraced the name. He thinks she doesn’t want to disappoint her dad from making a bad investment on her.

What should Hannah do?

I feel awful for Hannah right now. And even worse for the guy she married, but if you are unhappy, then end it. Tell your parents you’ll pay them back. Or next time you wanna get married, pay for it yourself. Maybe you’ll learn your lesson.

GMD: Dumping Social Media
Yi!

A recent study showed that 20% of marriages have ended in divorce due to social media websites. Chloe wants to get rid of all social media, but Blake doesn't. Chloe claims it is taking away from their relationship and he is always on it, while Blake says it is how he communicates with family, his business, etc.

Slacker says it is over 50% that people list on their divorce papers saying it caused the divorced. Slacker tells Blake that he gets it, but if they didn’t have it they would find other ways to communicate. Blake said he enjoys using facebook and it is a great tool for him to use for his business. Chloe says yes she is on face book, but she was fine without it so why do they need it now? Slacker says that she likes one technology and not another. Slacker thinks her heart is in a good place and thinks Blake may be slightly an addict.

Steve thinks Blake is just going to sneak facebook behind her back. He thinks that if you’re not connected then you will be left behind with the technology, but if the wife wants it gone then he should do it. He doesn’t get that concept really, but if that’s what marriage is then he might have to just get rid of it.

Whose side are you on?

I am on Blake’s side. I think Chloe is being immature and unreasonable. I am on facebook a lot, but there is some sort of insecurity there if you are this upset about it. If it is that big of a deal to her to get rid of the facebook then I think they need to come to a compromise where he doesn’t check it when they are spending time together.

Mommy Me Time
Yi!

Mothers get on average just 17 minutes of ‘me time’ all to themselves a day. Those moments are usually spent trying to catch up on a TV show reading, or taking a little extra time in bed. Women are so overworked that they’re often frazzled and stressed and forget to take any time at all for themselves. Even though both men and women can be working it is still mostly up to women to get the household chores done. When women can find time to themselves they find their bedroom to be their sanctuary.
 
Slacker says that his wife, who is a stay-at-home mom, watches entire seasons of TV shows on Netflix. Slacker says someone is lying: the moms about what they do with their time, or the study about how much time they get. Lil D completely disagrees with this study. We recently had some time off and he spent that time home with daughter. He says that he has never had so much free time in his life and he would be a stay-at-home dad in an instant.
 
Do you agree with the study? How much 'me time' do you get a day?

Awkward
Yi!

A recent post on Reddit asked, "What's the most awkward situation you've ever encountered?" Among the responses were:

mattymogue: I was working at a Bertucci's when some dude proposed to his gf in front of everyone and got rejected. What made it weird is that neither one of them left. They just sat there while he talked to her with her face buried in her hands.
aurturo: I was a camp counselor and we had a blind camper who couldn't find her backpack....I asked her what color it was, she said she didn't know...

mini-you: This just happened two weeks ago. My 7 year old son has discovered the joys of texting from my wife's phone. He and my wife are at my work waiting for me to lock up, he's sending me text messages from right across the table. Then he starts scrolling up, and gets a huge grin, and says "Whoa, I saw Mommy's boobs!" Yup...saw her naughty texts to me. I told her to delete them when she sent them. Guess she didn't.

CrunchyToes: I was running for an elevator full of people when the doors began to close in front of me. I tried the old 'stick your hand into the gap and the doors will automatically reopen' gambit. Not only did it not work, but I managed to accidentally give the lady standing at the front a full-on breast-grope, and by full-on I mean the whole honk-honk!, hand on flesh boobage. I have never been so relieved that the doors didn't re-open. As it was, all I could do was withdraw and shout "Sorry! Accident!" before running off.

Josh_Thompson: I asked this cute girl out who I met in college. When I came by her parents to pick her up, her mom came with us on the date. You know how bad things could be in that situation? It was worse.

-eDgAR-: I remember a substitute teacher that we had for a few days when I was in middle school. She was pretty overweight and one day she grabbed a chair from an empty desk to help someone out with their assignment, when suddenly we heard a loud crash. One of the legs on the chair had broken and she was flat on her back. It was hard not to laugh, but what made it even worse is as she was getting up, she ended up farting very loudly. The entire class erupted in a fit of laughter and she had to leave the classroom because she was so embarrassed.
 
What is the most awkward situation you've ever found yourself in?

OPP: New Flirty Neighbor
Yi! OPP today is from Carly:
 
Yi Slacker and Steve,
My husband and I have lived in the same neighborhood for the last five or so years and I really love it. Where we are it’s more like a community, everyone knows everyone, we all watch after each other’s kids and we have great cookouts every summer. Recently, our next door neighbors had to sell and the woman who moved in is acting too friendly towards my husband. This women has completely shut herself off from the rest of us, but when my husband is doing work outside or jogging around, she is out there asking him questions or just acting flirty and I don’t like it. I want to confront her about her attitude and the way she’s acting toward my husband, but I don’t want to come across as jealous. How do you think I should do this?!
Carly
 
Steve likes when guys hit on the woman he is dating. It lets him know that she is desirable to other men and he is 'winning'. Slacker understands how frustrating it can be to have someone flirt with your spouse.
 
How does Carly tell her to stop without looking like a crazy, jealous wife?

Clown Calls
Yi!

America may be facing a clown shortage. As older clowns are dying, there aren't enough younger clowns joining the ranks to replace them. There has been a drastic decrease in memberships of the country’s biggest clown organizations over the last 10 years. Even kids who are clowns end up quitting after they get to high school or college when they find out it’s not cool anymore. They end up ignoring the urge to clown until they reach their 40’s or 50’s. It may not help that the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus make the application process to be a clown harder. And most clowns only make about $300 per birthday party.
 
Slacker hates clowns and would love to see every single one of them disappear. Lil D's parents went out of town once and the guy that was babysitting him was in clown school. Lil D and his brother got a big show in their backyard that included juggling fire and balancing ladders! It was awesome!
 
Whether it's good or bad, we all have a clown story. What is yours?

Broken
Yi!

An artist decided to protest a museum by smashing a $1 million vase that was over 700 years old. He is now facing criminal charges for breaking the vase.
 
Slacker didn’t break art, but him and an old significant other broke a tremendously expensive bottle of wine. She threw something at him and it knocked him into the wine bottle and they broke a bottle of wine costing thousands. He almost broke a jet when he worked at the airlines and it wasn’t a great experience, but luckily nothing happened to the jet because he would be in debt to this plane for the rest of days.

Steve laughs at Slacker’s expense. He has broken things, but never something that expensive!

What is the most expensive thing you have broken?

I didn’t break anything, but I did write on my neighbors Lexus with a black sharpie when I was 3 years old…. Haha. She was snarky and deserved it.

OPP: Negative Nancy
Yi!
 
Yi! I knew I wanted Anna to be my best friend in college because she was so sarcastic and funny. She cracked me up and her biting sense of humor always made me feel sort of cool to be around her. But we've been out of college for 10 years and she's still exactly the same. Where I used to think she was cool and sarcastic, now I think she's just mean and maybe borderline depressed. I truly don't think I can be friends with her anymore and I'm actually a little bit worried about her. Is this something I should talk to her about or is it just time to leave behind friends that don't grow up?
Maryanne
 
Slacker said that it is weird when his guy friends have grown up and are out of college but are still going to strip clubs and experimenting with drugs. Grownups can’t have that snarky college attitude thing when they are 10 years out of college. He said he can kindly tell his friends that he can go out with thm once a month or every three months, but not all the time. There is a time and an obligation to tell the friend that hey, you are acting weird, are you okay?

Steve said that Slacker is saying discard your old friends if they act like this and that one person grew one way and the other grew another way. There’s too much obligation with the friend especially after 10 years, but he would move on if he were Maryanne.

What advice can you give Maryanne?

I would talk to the friend, but clearly she doesn’t feel close enough to the friend to talk to a radio show and not her…. If they were that good of friends then she wouldn’t be writing in to Slacker and Steve, she’d be talking to her seeing what’s up--might as well move on girl. I mean that is messed up, but your grown now and much more to worry about than friends not growing up.

UPDATE OPP: Propose to Boyfriend
Yi!

Last week we talked to Jamie who wanted to propose to her boyfriend on Valentine’s Day. We got the update that she did it! She made dinner reservations and everything was wonderful and she gave him a speech, but he high jacked the proposal and asked her! They are going to get rings later and she sounds very excited to get married.

Slacker thought that she shouldn't do it because it would take away his manhood. But he is very happy for her that it happened that way.

Steve said that that was very cool that it worked out good. She sounds very happy.

CONGRATULATIONS!

Sleepwalkers
Yi!

Lil' D our Producer did something unforgivable in his sleep. He accidentally punched his wife square in the face while they were both sleeping and she wasn't very happy. She now knows it was just him sleepwalking.

Slacker is appalled that Lil’ D did this. He actually chuckles at the fact. He thinks Lil’ D was stressed out about having a baby and that carried over it to his sleep where he lashed out. His wife, on Slacker’s birthday, kicked him in the sternum. And she woke up confused because he was screaming at her.

Steve has killed two people sleep walking. No, were just joking but he heard that can happen. Isn’t it dangerous to wake up sleep walkers?
Lil’ D said his wife was so confused and she ended up having a red welt. He has never slept walk or anything like that so it was very weird for him. She was so mad at Dave and it took a lot of talking to her to get her to understand that it definitely was not intentional.  

What have you done while sleep walking?

I had relations with my boyfriend and didn’t remember anything the next morning. My boyfriend was so mad that I didn’t remember and no, I wasn’t drunk.

Cat-astrophes
Yi!       
A woman in Sheshire ended up paying thousands of dollars in damage due to her cat having an epilepsy episode causing him to turn on their stove.
Another cat attack a woman in Michigan, while she was walking her dog. She kicked snow at the aggressive cat but the cat latched onto her face giving her cellulites infections.

Slacker thinks cats ruin your life. He remembers Lil’ D our producer taking time off of work due to a cat bite. His dad got bit by a cat and got a bacterial infection that caused him to get
several surgeries. The bite was possibly lethal.

Steve said this is why he doesn’t have cats.

What cat-astrophe have you experienced?

Time Machine
Yi!       

Everyone has a moment in their life where they wish they can go back in time and change something. It can be a great moment you wish to live over again or a painful one you want to erase!

 Slacker wants to go to the Dakotas and find out who the real Steve Weed is. He thinks Steve was a water/bat boy instead of being the amazing pitcher he claims to be. He doesn’t think you can use the time machine for the greater good, such as trying to stop Hitler. He wishes he would have accepted a publishing deal that offered him seven figures; instead he turned it down because his music was his “art.”
Steve wants to go back to see Slackers life. He would go back to freshman year in high school when he dissed his mom and accidentally pushed her over an ataman. He also would have stopped himself from dating a girl that went crazy.

What moment would you travel back in time to change what happened?

I am a student at Arapahoe High School and if I could go back to one moment in time. I wish I would have gotten to know the shooter so I could have reached out to him and saved a life that was taken because of him. Not only did he affect all the students at Arapahoe and take an innocent life but I wish I could have gotten to know him and possibly prevent the tragedy.

OPP:Propose to Boyfriend
Yi!
Jamie wants to propose to her boyfriend, and to make it even more interesting she wants to do it on Valentine's Day. The problem is that she needs ideas on how to propose or if she should even propose at all.
Slacker thinks they should talk her out of it. He thinks it’s a hostile environment and a bad idea. He wonders if they have traditional gender roles in their relationship and wonders what her boyfriend will think when she takes away something he is meant to do. He wonders if she’ll get on one knee or if she’ll make him get on his knee instead.

Steve thinks it’s cliché to propose on Valentine’s Day. He thinks she is taking his role in the relationship by not letting him propose to her. He wonders if woman get on one knee while proposing. He thinks it’s wrong to belittle him in the proposal idea that she wants. He thinks she would lack the special moment of being proposed to that most women dream of.

Ladies, would you propose to your boyfriend? If so how would you do it?

I think tradition or not the man should always be the one to propose in the relationship. It takes away his dominance and the special moment if the woman proposes. I’m wondering if he’s planning to propose on Valentine’s Day!

Hormone Horrors
YI!
Drew Barrymore was on her second pregnancy when she brought a furry little companion home for the family. Her husband wasn't so happy due to a very chaotic house already with pregnant Drew, a toddler, and another one on the way.

Slacker said that he and Steve are very sensitive to woman’s emotions. They really are. Drew went all Charlie’s Angels on her husband and he let her keep the puppy. A woman bought a brand new car and she had a grudge against this grocery chain and purposely crashed it into the grocery story. He doesn’t remember if his wife was pregnant or not, but she cried over quesadillas and Slacker made one better than her. It was hysterical.

Steve says it is never good for a guy to point out a woman’s hormones.
What crazy hormone horrors have you experienced?
I get so moody and very mean when my hormones act up. I wanna cut my tongue out sometimes because I can be so mean.

Ban Valentine's Day
Yi!
A school in Connecticut has banned candy on Valentine’s Day in effort to help kids make healthier choices when it comes to snacking. Some parents are outraged.

Slacker thinks V-Day is pointless. Well if they’re gonna ban V-day then they better ban Christmas, Halloween, Easter, and their birthdays. His children are going through something similar to get rid of candy because the kids with peanut allergies are really screwed. He doesn’t want to be responsible for the peanut allergy kid who starts to foam at the mouth. He thinks teachers that want it gone.

Steve has been trying to abolish this holiday for ever now! He hates it. Teachers are tired of Valentine’s Day because the kids give others Valentine’s and some kids don’t get any and it is just a hassle to have them at all.

Do you think Valentine’s Day should be banned from schools?

I loved Valentine’s Day as a kid. Don’t ban it. We enjoy making the box and making the Valentines. I say keep it.

Technology Screwed Me Over
Yi!

A military veteran from Kentucky man is now facing 3 years in jail because his GPS lead him to Canada. He and his wife were on a getaway to Vermont, but the GPS lead them to the border of Canada where border patrol proceeded to search the car. They found a gun and they charged him with smuggling a weapon into the country.

Slacker makes fun of Steve because always has troubles with anything technological. He couldn’t fix Steve’s phone.

Steve says he is a victim of this all the time. Just today Slacker tried fixing Steve’s phone because he doesn’t know how to! He couldn’t figure out how to put the station email on his phone and Slacker couldn’t either apparently.

Lil’ D was on a road trip and they went to Niagara Falls by Canada. The GPS was flipped around and they made a wrong turn so that they were headed towards the Canadian Border. So the guy he was traveling with told Lil' D that he had weed. Lil D' flipped out. So they got to the border and of course border patrol wanted to search the car. Him and this other guy were interrogated for four hours and were asked a ton of ridiculous questions. Eventually they were let go and they never found the weed. Phew!

How has technology screwed you over?

My phone butt dialed my mother when I was in the middle of relations with my ex-boyfriend. And my mother is a saint. She listened to us for 5 minutes. Talk about awkward.

OPP: Stole My Wedding
Yi!
Lisa has been engaged for a long time planning her entire wedding out, while her best friend has been engaged for 6 weeks and has now stole the colors of her wedding among many other things. She doesn't know what to do because this other woman is her friend, but she decided on all this wedding planning for her own wedding first!

Slacker has been married several times and knows women get very emotional about their wedding. Slacker questions Lisa and her motives because she came on air and calls her best friend out. She replied by saying that she doesn’t want to change the colors because they are her ideas and her creativity and the best friend is just lazy and doesn’t want to go find her own things to make her day special.

Steve said it sounds like Lisa’s friend got engaged just so she can one-up Lisa’s wedding. He brings up that Lisa isn’t happy for her best friend’s engagement. She replied that she is, but doesnt think her marriage will last.

What advice can you give Lisa?

I can’t believe her friend is doing this to Lisa. I would call her out on it. I would not settle for this, yes it is just one day at the beginning of the marriage, but that just isn’t fair. Lisa has worked months for this while her best friend just piggy backed on her to find the caterer, colors, center pieces, etc. Hell no!

Step Up or Step Off
Yi!

Slacker saw a mother yelling at her kid this weekend and by yelling he means verbally and emotionally abusing the kid. It gets worse from there. Slacker stepped in and tried calming the woman down, but the woman started screaming at him to get away. He now regrets
stepping in.

Slacker says him and Steve usually never get involved. He is a dad and he has lost his temper and has torn his kids down and was frustrated. He has said some things, but not like this woman. This kid broke something inside the store and she was just ragging on this kid. She tells her child he is retarded and horrible at sports. It was awful. It wasn’t his place to step in, but he did. He started the approach with “take a deep breath.” He tried saying comforting things to the woman, but he is not the face of comfort. He was horrified because as a man he approached a woman and she replied “get away from me!” So he ran to his car and in the process of getting in, he hit his nose with the door of his car and blood was everywhere. It was a mess. He wonders if what he did was a good r bad thing.

Steve and Slacker both hate the word retarded. And they would rather get physical abuse than be called that word. He is horrified about this woman. Steve questions Slacker running away because he looked suspicious. He gets it as a parent and understands that he wanted to be an advocate, but as males they feel bad things could happen to them.

Would you regret getting involved in a situation like this? Why or why not?  

I woudn’t regret getting involved. That poor kid probably gets it worse at home. I am proud of Slacker for stepping in because people ignore this kind of stuff all the time and it has to stop. Good job Slacker.

Hotel Horrors
Yi!
CNN has reported that when they went to check into the 11 rooms they booked only one was ready. The water is coming out brown, people can’t use the water at all because they claim there’s something dangerous on it, they can’t flush the toilets, there’s debris everywhere, the lobbies are even finished. And the Olympics start tonight. Good luck with that.

Slacker thinks this is ridiculous and disgusting. The water looks like pee. He swears he heard due to the unexpected influx of athletes, they are gonna need pillows for them because they can’t provide them. Slacker was in a hotel room and a man had a key that opened his door. He walked in and was so scared because he thought Slacker was there to kill him. Meanwhile, Slacker was terrified because he was in there first and wonders who the heck made a second key for his room!?

Steve is laughing at the entire situation.

Lil D’s friend went to Vegas and they smelled a horrific smell in the hotel and the next hotel room over was sectioned off because they found a dead body under the bed…. So sickening.

What horrifying hotel encounter have you experienced?

I stayed at the same hotel an entire family was murdered. Yeah I didn’t sleep. And I wanted to leave. Why we stayed there? I don’t know.

Revenge
Yi!
Hate the boss that did you wrong? Or how about the person that broke your heart? Well there is now a website where you can hire someone for a fee to get revenge on them including ruining reputations, property, or framing them. Nefariousjobs.com promises to get revenge on your ex or boss and make their life miserable.

A woman by the name of Michelle Chapman was the first woman to be jailed for trolling herself. She plotted against her dad and step-mother trying to break them up. She would send herself nasty messages pretending to be her step-mother and this went on for two whole years. She was eventually found out by the police because she made all the fake facebook accounts at her home and they found them archived in her hard drive. She had to serve 20 months in jail.

Slacker and Steve claim this company was their idea. Slacker is mad about the fact that they didn’t start this company. And who better to make people go absolutely insane than them? Steve says if your revenge lasts more than a month then you need to get over it.

What have you done to get revenge?

OPP: Best for the Kids
Yi!
Yi,
I've been a single mom to my two boys for most of their life. It's been hard and there's been plenty of times that I can't give them the things they deserve in life. They've missed out on sports because I couldn't afford the fees, they've had to skip days at the pool with their friends because I couldn't pay the admission, and there hasn't been a year I could get them new school clothes. The list goes on.
I've been seeing "John" for the last 7 months and he's great with my boys. I found a ring at John's house and I'm 99% sure he is going to propose to me. I'm not positive I want to marry him, but I know that if I say yes my sons will be taken care of and get the things they've always deserved. John owns his own company and will take care of us. My kids will finally get to be kids instead of always worrying about money. I'm torn. I know saying yes isn't the right thing to do to John, but I also know that I have to give my boys the best life I can. What do I do?
Candy
 
Slacker thinks that she would be teaching her kids to live in a loveless marriage. He asks if she would fake being a good wife and always felt in debt to him. He says women and men have done way worse things to provide for their kids.
 
Steve hates women that use men, but he understands why she would do this. He wants to hate her but she is obviously a great mom. Steve asks Slacker about his kids and if he would do anything for his kids and he of course answered yes, even if it was deceitful. He says what is wrong with a business arrangement where he will marry her because he wants to have a companion and she can provide for her children.
 
What should candy do?
 
I think she should just do it. If she has been with him for 7 months already then there is something in him that she must love.

GMD: Friends With His Friends
Yi!
 
Cindy and John have been together for a year and a half and they are having a slight disagreement about John's friends. She has never once met John's buddies and he claims that he doesn't want her to because when they hang out it is strictly "bro time." She at least wants to meet them in person, but John is saying absolutely not.
 
Slacker asks john if she can just meet them, they don’t have to go drink beers or whatever. He also asked John if he and Cindy are really serious and he answer yes. Slacker put John blast and said he clearly isn’t if he hasn’t introduced his best friend to his girlfriend. He said John is acting like a bachelor and he can’t do that anymore because they are serious. Yes, people can have their secrets, but in this case he thinks something shady is going on.
 
Steve asks her if she thinks he is embarrassed of her. Steve knows where John is coming from because it is worlds colliding. He said that John is protecting Cindy from the guys because there’s something s they know about him that Cindy should never know.
 
Whose side are you on?
 
I am 100% on Cindy’s side because he is clearly hiding something. You can still introduce someone and keep the two groups separate after the meeting. It isn’t hard. John, you’re a fool and I hope Cindy leaves you because you are so immature. Maybe that will teach you the importance of love.

Sexual Assault Reaction
Yi!
Yesterday's OPP was about a woman that wants her friend to turn in a man that may or may not have taken advantage of her while she was drunk. A woman named Jill called in the show and said that women only claim sexual assault when they regret their decisions. People were upset by her call and we wanted to give you a forum to react.
 
Slacker and Steve normally don’t go backwards and like to move forward but there was a lot of forum about this caller. They want to give you a chance to react to what she said. Slacker says that a lot of people say drunken consent isn’t a yes. But that isn’t fair because he has had drunk relations so what does that make him?
People drink and have fun with each other. Slacker says that he still thinks that being a male in this society is hard because “women cry wolf.” Steve protects himself from things like this because he has drinks with women all the time. If the factor of drunk relations could mean sexual assault, then they fear for mankind.  

Do you agree or disagree with Jill?

I disagree. It doesn’t matter what you’re wearing, what you’re drinking, what you look like, or how you’re acting, if they don’t say yes, then it is a NO.

Peculiar Punishments
Yi!
A Pennsylvanian couple attempted to cure their 3-year-old's fear of the dark by locking them in their car trunk.  They would fold down the seats and tell him to go look for candy in the trunk and leave him in there until they arrived at their destination. They are now facing abuse and neglect charges. Talk about how to NOT punish your child.

Slacker thinks that parents and teachers get it in their head that they can overdose that thing to try and punish them. It is not the smartest thing to do. What if a semi rear ends you?! That kid would be dead! This probably just made him scared of his own parents.

Steve says this is definitely abuse. He says that the kid is scared of everything now: cars, the dark, and his own parents. That punishment failed epically. Nuns made him spend an hour spitting in a bucket because they caught him cussing in catholic school. He was also forced to draw a circle on the chalk board and put his nose on the chalk board for talking in class.

What peculiar punishment have you received from your parents?  

Hmm. My mother put hot sauce on my finger because she caught me eating my boogers when I was 4. She put a dabble on my finger and said “okay now pick your nose”….. Never ate them again.

OPP: Divorce Talk
Yi!
Yi guys,
My mom passed away from breast cancer ten years ago. Our two boys are 4.5 and almost 2 and they only know my step-mom as grandma. Yesterday I got a call from my dad that they have been having problems and he's thinking of separating or the big D. I gave him some suggestions as to how to fight for it, and he thought they were some good ideas and would try them. If it doesn't work out I understand, but I don't want to have the conversation with my oldest about where grandma is and why she doesn't come play anymore. Can you guys get some suggestions for the potential conversation with the boys? What should I tell them?
Troy
 
Slacker thinks that going through a divorce is already hard and when you bring kids into the mix it is even harder. He has no idea how to talk to kids about divorce, yes he has been divorced before but not when his kids were born. He said there is probably a book somewhere to help with this.

Steve said that he can’t even imagine having that conversation with his kids if he had them.

How should Troy go about telling his children about their grandma and grandpa’s divorce?

I think that dad, grandma, and grandpa should all sit down and tell the kids together? If not, kids forget stuff. Especially that young. They’ll move on from grandma. Hopefully.

Bring It Back
Yi!

Lil' D our producer is very upset that a fast food restaurant has gotten rid of his favorite spicy mustard. He has vowed that he is so upset that he will not eat there until they bring it back!

Slacker thinks Lil’ D is losing his mind. He feels like him and Steve have reached a point in their careers to bring this kind of stuff back. It always seems to be food. He tells Lil’ D that Chick-Fil-A has a spicy mustard and that he should try and go find it in the Asian isle to find this mustard in the store. He wants M&M’s to bring back crisp M&M’s. It was like a whopper had relations with an M&M.

Steve wonders how long this stupid mustard has been at this fast foods place. Lil’ D told him that it was been there forever and he ate it with this chicken nuggets. Steve says this mustard sounds pretty popular… yeah right. 1,000 people liked the Facebook page for bringing back spicy mustard. His is kind of weird. He hates the digital cameras and wants the 35 millimeter cameras back. Bring back the film. He hid his weed in the canisters and he wants them back now.

Have you ever stopped going somewhere because they discontinued something? Did they ever bring it back?

I stopped going to Taco Bell because they discontinued the Baja Chalupa with the spicy sauce and I have never been back. I was very upset. Okay, not really. But still.

Tool Test
YI!

Men’s Health came out with a new article stating what makes a man a tool. The list is as follows:
-Takes selfies
-Wears a sleeveless jersey to a NBA game
-Instagrams food
-Wears sunglasses indoors or worse, at night
-Calls other guys by nicknames like champ, or boss
-Keeps sticker on flat brimmed hat
-Texts during dates

Slacker says tools are more often than not a man not a woman. He has he is down with being a fan of sports but the guys who paint their bodies with a single letter…they’re a tool. Slacker makes fun of Steve for wearing his sunglasses up the elevator and into the studio with them still on. Steve gave Slacker crap for wearing sunglasses at events but Slacker made a good point that if he puts them on his shirt and hugs someone they crush the glasses.

Steve wears his sunglasses indoors all the time. He says there’s an explanation and he had Lasik and they never told him when to take off the sunglasses. And he eventually has to pick them back on so it’s just a wasted motion. Steve does not text during dates. Or instagram his food.

Weird Weddings
Yi!

Did you know there is such a thing as wedding insurance? It was made just in case one person gets cold feet; so the other isn't stuck with the bill for the caterers, flowers and DJ. We are talking weird weddings: theme wedding, under water weddings, karaoke weddings, or maybe a fight broke out! Here’s a few wedding traditions for other countries:

In Scotland, “The Blackening of the Bride” is when people throw stuff at the bride like curdled milk, tar, feathers, rotten food, and fish.

In Sparta, the brides shave their heads and dress like men.

In Korea the men get their feet beaten with fish.

In Ireland the bride’s feet must stay on the ground the entire time.

In Germany, they smash the brand new table wear given to them and the couple is expected
to clean up the mess together.

In America, we get drunk and make a toast.

Slacker is talking about the picture above and he isn’t making fun of anyone but did these people really dress up like Shrek and Fiona? America is boring. He doesn’t understand why there needs to be a cake, and all the flowers and everything.

Steve feels sorry for the brides in all the weird weddings because it “their day.” They should look beautiful.

Have you ever been to a weird wedding?

I have never been to one wedding. At all. I know…sad.

Slacker's Special Trick
Yi!

We were having a technical difficutlies with the phone lines so Slacker and Steve encouraged people to call in and get their heights guessed by Slacker. I am sure you are asking why. He has a special trick where he can guess the height of the caller over the phone and every time he guesses correctly!

Slacker has this thing that he can do but doesn’t tell people. He can associate people with their height according to the tone of their voice. He has guessed the last three people in a row over the phone. He has been able to do it ever since he broke into the radio business.

Steve thinks this is crazy. There is no way he can cheat either. He is just mind blown.

Do you have a special trick you can do?

Nanny Gate
Yi!
Our friend is a nanny for this family and her bonus was a lot lower than what she usually gets paid. She is confused as to what she should do. To make it more weird the family's kid is the one that gave her the envelope of money...

Slacker says he doesn’t know what she should do. Lil’ D brought a new angle on the situation because he questioned is the reason the kid gave her the envelope because they put less money in there? Hmm… Slacker thinks that if the kid stole it then looks through his/her stuff to find it.
Steve asked if the kid stole the money. They have other envelopes at home and this kid could’ve easily gotten a new one after taking some out of her bonus. Steve says it’s a bonus and she should be grateful that she gets it. She should write a thank you card and say thank you for the X amount of dollars and put the ball in the parent’s court so they can bring up the money.

Should she confront the family? Or just move on and not say a word?

I think she should ask. I mean, what if they only gave her less because she did something wrong? She needs to know so she can change it. Or what if the kid took it? That’s not fair!
