Life Hacks
Yi! Reddit went crazy this weekend with the best life hacks people have. These were some of the top of the top:

Unemployed?
"Last time I was looking for a job, I posted a fake add for a very similar position on Craigslist so I could check out the resumes of my competition."

How to call in sick to work…the RIGHT way!
If you want to sound sick when calling in to your work, lie on your back while hanging your head over the edge of the bed. You will sound congested.
FREE HOTELS!!
"Hampton Inn Hotels have a 100% money back guarantee policy. If you aren’t happy for any reason at all they are required to comp your room. You can do this nearly as often as you like. I work for one and we regularly have the same people complain about things, like the room was too cold, or the fan was loud, and we have to comp them. One woman has like 180 free rooms complaints on her profile, but we still have to comp her. The only way around this is for the hotel owner to set up a review of the incident on a per case basis with Hilton. It’s easier just to comp the room and move on. Hilton pays the hotel back anyway."

Secret for getting a cab
Drinking in the city and can’t get a cab?, walk into a fancy hotel lobby, and call a cab. They’ll assume it’s a posh person going to the airport, and they’ll be there in a flash.
When at Target, argue over the price
As part of the employee training at Target, they teach you that if a customer argues over a price, and the full price is under $20, to just give it to them for whatever price they claim. It’s cheaper for the company to move on to the next customer than to call in a price check.
Free refills!
"I used to keep a cup from McDonald’s in my car at all times and whenever I was driving and wanted some soda I would just walk in any McDonald’s and refill my cup. I did this for weeks."
Skip Disney Lines
Rich moms hire handicapped people to go to Disney with them so they and their children can skip all the lines.
When you want to get someone’s attention
"If you’re in a crowd and need to get through, yell I’m gonna puke. To dominate someone in conversation stare at their forehead questionably."

You gotta ace that final
"Send out a mass email to the class the day before an exam saying I have just finished my study guide, and offer to swap it with other people. Never actually made a study guide. People would send me theirs and I would them send them each other’s back. Win win for everyone."
"For a free windshield repair…"
Got a broken windshield? Next time you’re driving and see a cement truck or any kind of truck carrying rocks or dirt follow it. Call the 1-800 number on the back and say a rock flew out and hit your windshield. Once they verify there was indeed a truck at that location there’s a good chance they’ll offer to replace your windshield for you.
Would you like some grass-fed bone-in steak for 88 cents?
"When I was going to college I would walk over to Whole Foods and get some of their most expensive grass fed bone in rib eye steaks from the meat counter. The butcher would wrap them up and slap a price tag on them. If I was getting meat for a BBQ this was sometimes upwards of 200 bucks. Then I would walk over to the bulk grains, put the meat on the scale, and hit print for something like oats. I’d cover the existing label on the meat with my much cheaper oats label, and proceed to self-check out. It would ask you to scan the Barcode, and then place the item in the basket. It would register the appropriate weight as both labels were from the weight of the meat. Then I’d pay 88 cents for six steaks and leave. I probably did this 25 times without arousing any suspicion."
Getting free food at Chick-Fil-A
"I use to work at Chick Fil A and we have a policy where if someone forgets their wallet or card we have to give them what they ordered anyway because the food would go to waste. So next time you’re hungry and low on cash go to the drive thru at your local Chick Fil A and act like you forgot your debit card and they will ALWAYS give you free food. Just do it sparingly so you don’t get caught."
Or free weed
"Want some free weed/alcohol? Just say that it’s your first time and someone will always be glad to loan you some."
The best way to get fresh fries every time at McDonald’s
"If it’s 2am and you’re at McDonald’s wanting fries, but you don’t want the old, stale ones that have been sitting there for three hours, order your fries with no salt. They salt them right after they make them, so they have to make you a fresh batch. Then go get salt from the condiment thingy. Or be that guy and ask them for salt and watch them start to hate you."

What are your best life hacks?

Lucky
Yi!

A Virginia couple have had quite the lucky streak after winning the lottery three times this month. Their first win came on March 12th when they won $1 million in the Powerball drawing. Their next win came on March 26th when they won $50,000 on 10 winning lottery tickets in the Virginia Lottery’s Pick 4 game. The next day they had another $1 million win from a Virginia Lottery Scratcher ticket- the $100 Million Cash Extravaganza.

If that isn't lucky enough for ya...A doctor in Oklahoma lost his wedding ring during an emergency surgery on a dog.
When he usually does surgeries, the vet normally takes his wedding ring off and puts it on a corner of the surgery table. But after his last procedure, he realized too late that the ring had landed in the trash can. He returned to work the next day and the trash can had been emptied. The doctor realized his lost wedding ring was somewhere in an Oklahoma City landfill, where over 2,000 tons of garbage is dumped daily. The chances of finding the ring were slim to none. But that didn’t stop him. Landfill employees identified the truck that carried the ring. The couple showed up  to help in the search. After digging and digging, the doctor tore a sack open and dropped it on a cardboard box and the ring fell out.

How have you gotten lucky?

OPP: Online Cheater
Today’s OPP went live on the air with us today but this is her OPP:

Yi! I have an OPP for you. I met this guy through online dating and he seemed like an awesome guy. We talked for a week or so and he wanted to meet up. I figured I would check him out on Facebook first and saw that he is married. I texted him telling me to never talk to me again. I can see who his wife is. Should I message her? I feel obligated to tell her.
Bethanie

Slacker thinks Bethanie should tell the guy's wife. He thinks most women would want to know that their husband was not the man they thought he was.

Steve is adamant that there is no reason for Bethanie to tell. He says that she doesn't know their life and there is no reason to get involved. It's not like Bethanie and the guy had relations--it was nothing more than some online flirting.

What do you think should Bethanie do?

Splurged
A Hull, Georgia teen recently went on a shopping spree after a First Citizens Bank accidentally deposited $31,000 in his account. The boy shares the same name as another customer, who made the deposit. The teller didn't catch their error. The boy withdrew $20,000 and spent another $5,000 with his debit card. When the boy went to the bank for more money he told them the cash was from an inheritance. The teen told cops he is resolving the issue although he has yet to do so.

Also, Perez Hilton recently wrote a piece on celebrity splurges, and it's crazy to think anyone could spend what some people do on fashion accessories. From J-Lo's Hermes Birkin bag in red crocodile for $70,000, to Miranda Kerr's $85,000 diamond Cartier bracelet, these celebs know how to spend!

What have you splurged on?

Hair Brush
We know a woman who has been dating this guy for awhile now. But she told us that when they were done having relations, he went into the bathroom and brought out a hair brush. He asked if he could brush her hair.

Slacker is arguing with Steve about.  Slacker thinks that is very weird and border line stalker-ish.

Steve said this is awesome and thinks women like this a lot. An ex of his asked him to brush her hair post relations and he did it and didn’t mind it. He admits the timing is little off for the girl they know. But when he did this he did it right, so he says. He said women love their scalp massaged.

What do you think about this? Do you think this is weird? Or do you dream of your guy doing this or you?

I think this is weird and it wouldn’t be if the guy just massaged my head. But the fact that he went and got a tool to do it makes it awkward.

Worst First Impression
Yi!

A new car survey by Europcar reveals that 32% of people say a Mercedes makes the best impression on a first date. Other findings:
- 23% of young adults say the car someone drives is important when meeting a potential partner
- 49% of people say the first thing they usually notice about someone on a first date is their smile

What was the worst first impression you've made or someone's made on you?

OPP: Old Flame Moving Back
Yi! Candy came on the air with us today, but here is her OPP:

Yi! I have been dating my boyfriend for 8 months and am in love. Prior to that, I dated a guy in 2010, who I was also in love with, but who moved away for work. He's now returning to the area and recently contacted me. I completely fell under his spell again. Now, I find myself in love with two men. Is this even possible? What do I do? I would love to hear from other listeners, who have experienced this. Which person did they choose?
Candy

Should she go back to her old boyfriend or stay with her current one?

Stuck
Yi!

A 23-year-old woman got trapped in a train after falling asleep inside of it. She fell asleep on the train after dinner with friends—her stop is the end of the route in San Jose, CA. She woke up in the back of the train and there was nobody on it. It was in the train yard, it was 12:30 at night, and her cell phone was dead. She tried yelling for help and even broke the glass of the emergency stop box and the fire extinguisher, hoping an alarm would go off. It didn’t. She eventually made it up to the conductor’s car, which should have been locked, and used the radio to call for help. When workers got there they didn’t apologize…they asked her if she was drunk. The company eventually apologized to her, but she wants to make sure workers are checking the rail cars at the end of the night. Employees were reprimanded for not checking the cars thoroughly and for keeping the conductor’s car unlocked.

Also, a man in Lawton, Oklahoma was walking outside when he inadvertently dropped a $20 bill. It fell down a storm drain. Because the man, who has not been identified, needed the money, he went crawling after it. That turned out to be a big mistake. The man, who was disoriented and dehydrated when he was finally back above ground, could not tell the police how he was able to get down into underground pipes. However they speculate it must have been via nearby storm drains. When he got down in there he quickly discovered getting back up wouldn’t be easy. He was as much as 12 feet below in a cramped, dark, and wet pipe, in a system only one with a map would be able to navigate. It was only when a group of passing high schoolers were walking by that our wayward friend was helped. They heard screams coming from down below and called 911 right away. Once officers arrived on the scene, they removed a manhole cover and saw the man below. So what about that $20? Did the man find it? Sadly, as KSWO reports, he didn’t.

Where have you gotten stuck?

Sing-along Songs
Yi!
Everyone has a certain song that they just have to sing to when it comes on in the car. You turn it up roll the windows down, and belt it at the top of your lungs. A website came out with a list of popular songs people like to sing along to.
Check it out:
​•​"Bohemian Rhapsody" – Queen
​•​ "Love Shack" – The B-52's
​•​"Piano Man" – Billy Joel
​•​"Africa" – Toto This 80's hit is a favorite to sing, but it's also probably one of the most misquoted songs ever. Is it "I bless the rains, I miss the rains or I kissed the rains"? Who knows? Doesn't matter as long as you sing it at the top of your lungs!
​•​"It wasn't me" – Shaggy
​•​"It's the End of the World" – R.E.M.
​•​"Brown Eyed Girl" – Van Morrison
​•​"Lady Marmalade" – from Moulin Rouge (Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mýa, Pink)
 
Slacker only sings along to songs when he’s driving. Some songs he just can’t sing along to. He only rolls down the windows if he’s not embarrassed that he’s singing along to it.

Steve thinks that Let It Go is an annoying song that everyone sings because all you have to do is scream. He doesn’t like rolling down his windows while singing because he doesn’t want anyone to hear his voice.

What’s your sing a long song?

I sing any song I know the words to but my top three are Livin’ on a Prayer, Escape(The Pina Colada Song), and Baby Got Back.

My Life Is White Trash News Flash
Yi!
Two brothers in New Jersey were wrestling when one of them pulled out a knife and stabbed the other in the abdomen. Police had to come and arrest him for assault but are unsure what caused him to pull out the knife in the first place.

Slacker wants to have a day where he gives away all the white trash things he has in his garage. He has a chocolate fountain that has been sitting his garage unused for years. He says he used to fight with his brothers but nothing ever turned that violent.

Steve thinks the chocolate fountain is extremely white trash and Slacker should get rid of it. He wants to go to Golden Corral to see their “amazing” chocolate, white chocolate and caramel fountains.

What’s your white trash news story?

OPP: Pregnancy Vacation
Yi!
Today’s OPP is from Paul
Yi Guys,
Every few years, my buddies and I take a guy's vacation. It's a 4 or 5 day weekend where we get together, play golf, have some drinks, and catch up on guy stuff without our wives. This year's trip is about a month and a half away, and I've had everything booked for almost a year. Things are a little more complicated than usual this time. My wife will be almost 39 weeks pregnant the weekend we have the trip planned for. She was cool with me going at first, but now that the due date is getting closer, she says I can't go. First, I can't back out this late. We've done this trip for years and things are already planned and reservations made. Second, our life is about to get hectic and the trip will really help me clear my head and go into life with a baby with a clear head. Third, if she goes into labor I can catch a flight home and her best friend will be here to help until I get back. What do you guys think? Should I stay or should I go?
Paul

Slacker knows how he feels since him, Steve, and Lil’ D, all go to Vegas each year. This year Lil’ D’s wife is pregnant and will be 37 weeks along during the time of the trip. Slacker doesn’t think Lil’ D should go since he says family comes first. He thinks that if family truly does come first for both Paul and Lil’ D then neither of them would even consider going on the trips.

Steve thinks the trip is calling it very close to the birth of his child. He thinks it’s almost selfish of Paul to not consider how his wife feels when she is the one that’s giving birth. They need to take into consideration how their wives will be feeling and what they would want so close to the due date.

Should he go on the vacation or stay with his wife?

I think they’ll always have an opportunity to go on a trip but, seeing the birth of their children is literally a once in a life time thing! Even if they could catch a flight back they should be there to support their wives through every second of it. Your child’s birth should be first and foremost over a guy’s weekend.

GMD: Sugar Daddy Dater
Yi!
Adam and Sopia have recently moved in together. Adam found out Sophia pays for her bills by being a sugar baby to older men but without having relations with them. Adam thinks it’s cheating but Sophia thinks it’s completely acceptable since she uses the money to support both of them.

Slacker wants to know if she has any other jobs to support herself. He wonders if it’s worth the money. He wonders what the colleagues and co-workers think she is to the men she goes out with, and how they introduce her to their friends. He thinks if she's not having relations now, she eventually will if she continues it.

Steve wants to know if she told him up front about being a “sugar baby” or if he just happened upon this so called career of hers. He thinks it sounds for the most part professional since she doesn’t have relations with the men and is never alone with the men. He thinks men will always want to take it to the next level even if she doesn’t want to.
Should she respect Adam and quit or continue being a sugar baby to pay the bills?

I think Adam has a good point since she is technically dating other men but I think if it is completely professional then that’s Sophia’s choice. If that’s how she chooses to make a living then that’s her choice.

Meltdown Moment
Yi!

A Florida mom lost her temper when she wasn’t allowed to make changes to her son’s cell phone plan. The woman started shouting at store employees. Police came and asked the woman to leave. An hour later, police went back to the store and found the woman screaming again. After being asked to leave, she told police, "I don't give a [expletive] what you say." After walking out, she threw a phone charger into the store and that’s when she was arrested.

Also, Judge Joe Brown was arrested after allegedly throwing a tantrum at a Memphis juvenile court. According to TMZ, the former TV judge showed up to court today (Monday) to represent someone in a child support case. After he was told by court staff that there was no record of the case he'd come to defend, Brown allegedly freaked out and became verbally abusive. He reportedly ignored the judge and was arrested for contempt of court.   Brown was originally ordered two days in jail but it was bumped up to three days when Brown continued to yell and scream while being removed from the courtroom.

What was your melt down moment?

OPP: Mom in the Delivery Room
Yi! Today's OPP comes from Andrea:

Yi! I have a problem. My baby girl is due on 4/20. My whole family lives in Illinois and wants to come out for her birth. My boyfriend and I are thrilled to have them, but my mom wants to get more involved than I'd like. When I actually deliver the baby I'd like it to just be me, my boyfriend, and older sister in the room. My mom has insisted the whole pregnancy that she gets to be in the delivery room with us. I've always just blown it off and gave a short answer as to avoid any conflict. I was talking to my sister today and told her for sure that I do not want mom in the room with us. I love her but she automatically adds extra stress in these types of situations and makes me anxious. Well my sister must've told my mom, because I got a text from her "just making sure" she's the number one person that gets to be there for the delivery. With only a month left until she's due the time is getting close. How do I tell my mom, who has made it very clear she'd be very upset if I didn't let her in the delivery room, that I just don't want her to be there? Help me!
Andrea

How should she tell her mother that she doesn't want her in the delivery room without hurting her feelings?

DIY Disasters
Yi!

After making a bad 3am decision to tear out a wall in his bathroom, Steve decided it was time for a remodel. He and a friend have been updating his bathroom. After they put in a new vanity, they turned the water back on and it wasn't hooked up correctly! They ended up flooding Steve's bathroom and basement!

What is your DIY disaster?

Wifely Duties
Yi!
A couple of days ago we had a woman call during an OPP saying that it is every woman's duty to cook and clean for her husband. She said it is a man's job as a husband to protect his wife, and the wife must submit to him because the vows they took.

Slacker said he doesn’t know what to feel about this woman. He asks if there are people out there that agree with her.  It bothers both Slacker and Steve that this woman mentioned that a man leaves the care of his mother to his wife for her to take care of him. They were both raised to be self sufficient and take care of themselves and don’t need anyone to do that for them.

Steve said this woman caused a lot of ruckus on their facebook page. He said he likes the defined roles of the relationship and that it’s cool that it works for them. She sounds happy with her life

What do you think about this? Do you agree with this woman?

I semi-agree with her. I believe there should be set roles for a relationship. My boyfriend knows that I will never be a cook. So he will have to do that. And I do not want to be a stay at home mother. But he wants to be a stay at home dad, which I’m totally cool with. But if a man can’t take care of themselves then see ya bye! Not my job.

Bug Related Incident
Yi!
An elementary school in Oregon was recently infested with bugs. Some of the students broke out in rashes and were bitten by the bugs however the district was unable to identify the bug! Another man’s house in Philadelphia had become so infested with cockroaches that the government threatened to condemn the house if the man did not do something about the bugs. He later got the house exterminated.

Slacker had a friend who was on a special diet where you eat insects for the protein! While she was eating the bugs she accidentally ate a bug that was still alive. It was moving in her mouth and she had to spit it out!

Steve says he thought people only ate bugs on Survivor or as a last resort to survive in a dire situation. He wonders why people would torture themselves by eating bugs for a health diet.

What creepy incident have you experienced?

OPP: Black Wedding Dress
Yi!
Todays OPP is from Grant
Yi! My Fiancé wants to wear a black wedding dress. She thinks that they’re really beautiful, but her mom is going to kill me if I let her do it. I’m, stuck in the middle between their arguing and cannot take it anymore. I don’t know who to side with. I mean I want my bride to be happy on our special day, but I also know that my soon to be mother-in-law will be miserable if it isn’t a traditional wedding. What should I do?
Grant
 
Slacker thinks if Grant was 100% behind his fiancé’s decisions he would not have asked them for advice. He thinks men are used to seeing women in little black dresses so to walk down the aisle in a white dress makes it have more meaning. White is an angelic color because it’s so pure and you usually never see a woman in a white dress.

Steve doesn’t think there is anything wrong with a black dress and thinks it’s kind of sexy. He wants to know what’s more important to Grant, keeping the bride happy on her special day or pleasing the mother in law to stay on her good side? He thinks it makes it special because you never see black wedding dresses where as you always see white ones.

Who do you think Grant should side with?
I do think the dress should be white because  she is vowing in front of God however, it is their wedding which is based on their beliefs. So I think if she doesn't believe that then by all means where a black dress but it's her beliefs she should be following for her wedding. Grant should let her decide though and not the mom.

Snuck In
Yi!
Justin Casquejo a sixteen year old boy recently snuck in to the Freedom Tower. Once he got inside he convinced the elevator man to take him up to the 88th floor where he then climbed the stairs to the roof. Once he passed the sleeping security guard to the roof, he climbed the antenna to take selfies. He was on the roof for two hours before he got caught.

Slacker says the only thing he’s snuck into was movie theater. He acted like he was searching for his son and snuck in the back door while others were leaving. He says he’s also gotten free pop corn by taking an old carton out of the trash, cleaning it in the bathroom, and then going to get a free refill.

Steve says he’s snuck into Disney properties when he was a kid. He also snuck into an event at the summer Olympics but eventually got banned from the event while him and his friends were messing around with the equestrian.

What crazy place have you snuck into?

I accidentally snuck into the Carrie Underwood meet and greet. I thought it was just the line to get into the venue but once I got in I saw everyone had a special sticker on. They didn’t notice I didn’t have one so I ended up meeting Carrie Underwood for free! And yes she's even hotter in person

Parking Disasters
Yi!
Lots of car accidents and crashes are happening lately.  Some people get in fender benders, some get broken into, or some car accidentally crash. One of Steve’s friends parked her car on a hill but forgot to set the parking break. It rolled down the hill and crashed through an elementary school’s fence!

Slacker says he’s owned many cars on steep driveways and never used a parking break. He doesn’t think parking breaks are necessary. He thinks if you put it in park it shouldn’t move. He questions Lil’ D’s story about his friend’s car shifting out of gears and bouncing off of other cars since he’d turned the wheel when he parked it. He’s not convinced parking breaks keep cars safe.

Steve thinks parking breaks are needed for steep places like San Francisco. He has a button on his car that turns on the emergency break which he’s never used but thinks it looks cool. He made a deal with Slacker to sing a Frozen song if not many people call with car disaster stories.  

What is your parking or driving disaster?

Spring Break
Yi!
Spring break is in full swing and we all know some crazy things happen during the break. An article states Northampton Community College canceled their student’s spring break to make up for snow days. The students were outraged and protested by wearing swimsuits and beach clothes to class. Only about 15 students participated and were mostly males. They wished more students (girls in particular) would have participated in their “rebellion” The principal however allowed them to have a small non alcoholic party in the cafeteria. Another article lists five ways to stay safe during spring break:
- Be Safe in the Sun
- Use Medications Wisely
- Be Careful With Contact Lenses
- Think Twice About Getting Tattoos or Henna
- Stay Hydrated and Remember Tips for Healthy Eating
 
Slacker is scared his daughter will want to travel on spring break when she grows up. He thinks it’s sad that they couldn’t get more than 15 students to participate in the protest. He thinks it was probably members of the chess club who participate in the event. He says he was just like those guys since he participate in the band and didn’t have exciting spring breaks. He says the only thing he’d ever spiked the punch with was ginger ale.

Steve doesn’t think the so called “protestors” had fun during their beach day and thinks it was most likely embarrassing them. He thinks Slacker probably would have done the same thing in college since he was in the marching band.

What’s your crazy spring break story?

I usually don’t go anywhere for spring break to save my money for summer. So my crazy spring break consists of Girl Scout cookies and an entire season of Gossip Girl. Raging lifestyle I know.

OPP: Divorced Parenting
Yi
Today’s OPP is from Andy
Yi! I share custody of my son with my ex-wife. Over 2 weeks ago, I emailed her about his bad grades and that he was going to start being grounded again if he didn't turn in homework. Well, he decided to not turn in homework. I let the both of them know that he was going to be grounded when he came to my house. Now he refuses to come over and "I'm an abusive parent with outrageous rules that aren't fair." She lets him live his life without rules and consequences. She's knowingly and willing breaking our parenting plan and divorce decree and doesn't care. I can't get my attorney or the courts to help. I need some outside advice and opinions.
Andy
Slacker thinks the story is only one sided. He wonders why the son would call him abusive if he was only threatening to ground him. He thinks it’s hard for them to be parents together when they no longer have a love or lust for each other. He thinks they might be in a disagreement because they are divorced and no longer want to agree with each other.

Steve thinks the mom is playing the good cop. If she doesn’t ground him he’ll want to stay at her house more than the dad’s. He thinks they switched places since usually the dad wants to be the cool dad who doesn’t care and the mom is up tight. He thinks the son should have done what he was told but thinks they need to hear both sides of the story.

Do you think Andy has the right to punish his son for misbehaving?

I think the son should be punished for not listening but I also think there may be another side to the story. I think the son may be pushing the dad’s buttons on purpose so that he doesn’t get in trouble with his mom. He’s playing the field by picking favorites to get what he wants it sounds like.

GMD: Car Lover
Yi
Tony is obsessed with his new car. He invests lot of time into it and is always cleaning it or washing it. His wife Kristen thinks he’s way too attached to it and spends too much time with it. He thinks it’s completely acceptable since it’s a new car that he’s always wanted.

Slacker wants to know if he’s so obsessed with it that he won’t let his wife drive it or if he would share it with her. He doesn’t think a car is an investment. It shouldn’t take time away from his wife. He thinks Tony is being a little unfaithful to his wife. He thinks Steve would be the same way if he was in a marriage. A car is not more important than a person.

Steve thinks Tony’s behavior is completely acceptable. He would do the same thing if he had a new car. He thinks anything that takes attention away from the spouse in a marriage is not healthy. He thinks if someone puts more time into anything other than the marriage it will cause problems.

Do you think he’s too attached to the car?

I think he’s letting the car consume too much of his time. His wife should come first and foremost and then the car. The second something becomes in between a marriage is when it falls apart.

Things Your Parents Say Wrong
Yi!

We all love our parents but even they say the darnedest things like P.J. Chung's, Chip-oh-tay for Chipotle, The Facebook, Tweeter, Fifty-Cents, and the list goes on.

Slacker’s parents say warsh instead of wash and they’re even from here! They also pronounce Chipotle wrong like Chip-Oh-Tay. Slacker apologizes on air because he knows they’re listening. But he admits to saying Wynkoop as win-coop, when it is pronounced as wine-coop. He ponders why people put ‘the’ in front of stuff. Like The Facebook, The AIDS, The cancer. NO! That’s not right. A pet peeve of Slacker’s is when people get their feeling hurt, but pronounce it as fillings. That is just crazy.

Steve said that one of the biggest pet peeves is when people say pitcher for picture. It drives him insane. A pitcher is a vessel of water, not a photo. You know the drink that is half champagne and half orange juice? Yeah, he pronounces it as Hermosa like the city. Dummy. His other one is jewelry. He pronounces it as jewel-ry. But really it has 3 syllables. Jew-el-ry.

What do your parents say wrong?

My mother asks me every day, “How was Steve and Slacker?!” I say, “Mom, it’s Slacker and Steve.” She replies, “Same thing.” Ha! I love her.

Showing Off
Yi!

Being a cop is very impressive, but pretending to be one isn't. A man in Florida is facing charges for impersonating a cop to impress a girlfriend. He was seen at a flea market and even fooled a real cop into thinking he was a sheriff. He ended up turning himself in for using a police badge and openly carrying a weapon.

Slacker isn’t a fan of people who show off. He was in a band and people think he liked to show off but really he just loved music. He told a story of a man who was showing off his GTO in front of him and then he crashed the beautiful car two seconds later.

Steve sabatoges people who show off. One time these kids were trying to show off on their bikes and he threw a stick at the spokes of a bicycle and it jammed into the wheel. The kid went flying onto the ground.

What did you do to show off?

OPP: People Walk All Over Boyfriend
Yi! I’m dating probably the sweetest guy that I’ve ever met, but he has one really big personality flaw that drives me insane.  He never stands up for himself ever. I mean…he basically lets people steam roll right over him like all the time.  At work, his boss treats him like crap and he doesn’t do anything. He’s asked for a raise three times and his boss hasn’t even responded to him. I’m thinking about going to his job to raise some hell, I hate seeing him taken advantage of. He says that he’ll work it out, but he never gets it done. Should I go there and talk to his boss for him?
Alexis

Slacker wonders if the girlfriend is attracted to someone with no back bone. When he was managing a music store, there was one guy that was in his forties. He would have his wife call in sick for him and if he scheduled this guy too much she would call the store and talk with Slacker about changing his schedule.  If she calls her boyfriend’s boss, he will get no respect. As much as he has now, he will get even less. Slacker says she better not call or go to his work. He is a firm believer that people never change and that this guy will always be a pushover. Maybe.

Steve says how did this guy get a girlfriend to begin with? Maybe there are women out there that buck up their guy and give them their back bone. But that makes him look pathetic.

What should Alexis do?

I think she should encourage him to stand up for himself and tell him he needs to be a man. Period. You can’t let people walk all over you!

Work Damage
**ATTENTION** NSFW This video is for mature audiences only due to a graphic image of daddy parts.
A TV station in Denver made a colossal mistake at work today by airing a picture of daddy parts on air. A man at a gas station marked gas down to $0.01, and Slacker cussed on air.

Slacker sighs about this video. Why did they leave the camera on the iPad and the guy had three chances to get the camera off. Then here comes the image that everyone is talking about. At that point it is horrible and you can tell the new casters are trying to move on from what happened. When he said the F word on air he didn’t realized the mic was on! He was very embarrassed. It was bad.

Steve laughs hysterically at the video. He talks about the look on the news casters faces and how priceless it is.
What colossal mistake have you made at work? What was the consequence?

Weird Things Men Do
Yi!
Women always want to know what men do when they're not looking. Among the list are:   
•           Flush mid-pee and race the toilet.
            •           Imagine how they would save their workplace or school from terrorists.
            •           Enter “Beast Mode” running up the steps when nobody is looking.
            •           Fantasize about their wife or girlfriend’s female friends.
            •           Blow their nose into their hands in the shower.
            •           Delete their search history.
 
Slacker thinks that women do not do things like this! They are both guilty of the peeing situation and try to race the flush. Weirdos. He said that if a guy came in a grocery store and take it over he would run to the can isle and throw them at the guy. You’ll need something big and heavy to beat someone up with. He admits to blowing his nose among many other things he does in the shower…
 
Steve definitely imagines what he would do if someone tried breaking into his house! He never runs up the stairs, at least when no one is around. Otherwise, he hauls up the stairs very fast. He doesn’t fantasize about his significant other’s friends because he would just go get them. And he never deletes his history- unless Slacker is going to fix his computer. Yikes!
 
Do women do weird things when men aren’t looking?

I dance in the mirror so I know I am on point. I also talk to myself in the mirror like I am having a conversation with myself when no one is there.

Junk Injuries
Yi!
A Montreal underwear company called UNDZ is now offering $50,000 insurance for your man/woman parts if you buy 3 pairs of their underwear. A man can insure his land, his dog, his life, but not his junk?
 
Slacker mentions the story in the news about a Playmate that was at a golf tourney and they put the golf tee in the girl’s behind. A man then came up with the nine-iron and instead of hitting the ball off the tee he smacked the club into her behind really, really, hard. She is now suing for $500,000 for punitive damages! He also mentions another news story of a British man that “lost” his daddy part. He said it was just gone and told law enforcement that he was assaulted.
 
So this got us thinking, what is the most damage you have done to your junk?

OPP: Dump the Blind Guy
Yi!
Yi, I listen to you guys everyday on my drive home from work. I have a bit of an issue, and don't have anyone else to seek advice from. You see, I'm a single mom of three boys, and am dating a man who is slowly going blind. The issue is I really like him, but now am questioning if it could work out. I feel we could never be a normal couple. We couldn't go to the state fair, movies, etc. Yeah we could go to dinner, but I think that might be the only thing. You see he is almost completely blind already. When we go to church I have to help him around the church. I would always have to drive us places, do all the shopping, etc. I also have my 3 sons. Their dad is in the picture some what, but he could never play sports or do activities with them. I also don't think I could ever live with him. With my 3 sons, he could fall and get hurt because of a toy they left out, or anything else. I'm not sure what to do. I think this makes me sound like a cold and shallow B, but I'm thinking not only of my sons, but him as well. It would be different if I didn't have any children and we were together, but I do have children.
Shanna
 
Slacker says that Shana doesn’t list one good thing about this guy and the relationship. She just has a list of things that are going to give her trouble later on. He asked Steve if the woman of his dreams walked into his life, but the one thing that is wrong with her is that she is going blind. How do you tell someone that you’re breaking up with someone that you’re blind?

Steve says you can break up with someone with a disability. A person can’t get sued for breaking up with someone. He wouldn’t stay with his dream girl Slacker brought up. She has to come up with a reason other than the blindness. He said if he had cancer or something then he would push the other person away. Immediately.  And tell them to go live their life.

What advice can you give Shanna?

I think Shana is very rude and shouldn’t have led this guy on already. She should just make up a reason and leave him so he can find someone better.

Movie Moments
Yi!
A grandmother is Phoenix is now facing charges against her because she had drugs plants on her son-in-law. She had her granddaughter of 9 years old plant several bags of cocaine and pills in her father's car so she could get full custody of the child. We thought that stuff only happens in movies!

Slacker says he has live the rock star life and has hit an A chord and have everyone cheer for  him while he hit that chord! He says that one thing that has happened in movies that never happens in real life. And it is getting hit in the head with something and they pass out. That never happens!!

Steve says he has always wanted to say, “Follow that cab!” He has been in high speed chases before because he made someone angry on the road. So him and his buddy pulled into someone’s driveway and turned the car off. The car that was chasing them drove right by.

What was your epic movie moment?

My epic movie moment was when I was getting bullied and I was tired of it, so I punched this girl square in the nose! It was awesome! I don’t know if that counts as movie worthy, but it was so cool!

Private Investigator
Yi!
Robert Lindsay a real estate agent was sued by a home owner recently. The owner was suspicious Robert overpriced the house so he could have relations with another agent inside the home. The home owner Richard Weiner put up security cameras and caught them in the act! Robert attempted to sue Richard back saying he was the one to overprice the house, however Richard had caught Robert’s relations on camera eleven times!

Slacker had a friend who was dating someone that said she worked at a spa. He would always pick her up outside the spa but never inside. She’d call from a payphone to get picked up which made him suspicious. He called the spa and some of the spa workers even covered for her. Slacker and his friend staked out outside the spa and called it and asked to speak to her. The spa worker ran across the street to the bath house where to hand the girlfriend the phone which then busted her.
 
Steve had a friend who forced him to stake out outside a house waiting to see if his girlfriend was cheating. She never showed up and they ended up sitting there doing nothing for two hours. He thinks they should have followed the actual girl instead of waiting for her to come to them.

OPP: He Wants to Know My Number
Yi!
Today’s OPP is from Melanie
Yi, 
My boyfriend and I are talking about getting engaged. We had a fight after he asked how many partners I have had. I told him it was none of his business. I think if I was honest and told him my number, he would freak out because it's a lot more than he would think. I know how guys are, and he would get jealous and angry about something I can't change. Should couples reveal how many partners they have had? What do you say when you are asked?
Melanie
 
Slacker thinks the number could relate to health issues causing a problem. He thinks it’s a valid question if you want to live a long and prosperous life with them. If it would affect your own health in the future then the question is necessary. However if he knew his wife’s number he would probably dwell on it, therefore he doesn’t want to know it.  
 
Steve thinks most people get their numbers in high school and college rather than when they’re adults. He thinks if you’re investing in the relationship then you need to know how many relations they’ve had in order for the relationship to continue.
 
 
Should she tell him how many previous relations she’s had?
I think he does deserve to know the number if he’s willing to marry this woman and commit the rest of his life to her. If it was just a relationship, then no he wouldn’t need to know. But since they’re considering marriage I think it’s necessary.

Brutal Breakups
Yi!

There are many ways to breakup with someone. In an article we found the seven worst ways to break up with someone.
The 7 Deadly Dumping Sins
If you’re thinking of going your separate ways but don’t want to make things worse or if you’re the one getting jilted, here are most common humiliating ways to get dumped.
Social media
That moment when you check your partner’s Facebook page and they are no longer ‘in a relationship’ but ‘single’ or they tweet you and tell you it’s over.
Email/ text
He sends you an impersonal text or email, and doesn’t even bother to tell you to your face.
Ignoring you
This is a trick that was pulled on high school girlfriends, not in an adult relationship. Be relieved that you can go out and find a man of your own mental age!  
Using a friend
He doesn’t even have the courage to tell you to your face, but instead gets one of your friends involved.
Running off with your best mate
Not only do you lose your partner but also your best friend- there is nothing more humiliating. You are left with no one you can talk to about it and find it hard to trust again.
Stood up at family event
Everyone asks where he is and why he’s not there, and you don’t want to tell them that you were stood up so you have to make up some excuse as to why they couldn’t make it.
Jilted on your anniversary
He could have done it before you got your hair done, but at least you still look good.
 
One man was broken up with in a creative fashion however. His now ex- girlfriend had him solve a puzzle that said “I’m breaking up with you”.
 
Slacker would send a 5,000 peace puzzle to break up with someone so they’d have to solve the entire thing before they knew what it said. He doesn’t think sleeping with the best friend is acceptable because you’d be stealing the support system they need after the breakup.  He thinks those breakups aren’t the worst ones out there. He thinks there are much more brutal ways to end it with someone.
 
Steve thinks the seven dumping sins are all completely normal and acceptable ways to break up with someone.  He thinks if someone asks you out over text they have the right to breakup with you over text. He thinks having a friend breakup with someone for you softens the blow of the breakup.
 
What’s the most brutal way you’ve been broken up with? Or the most brutal way you’ve broken up with someone?

Crying during Proposal
Yi!
A man on the Ellen show was overcome with emotions during his proposal. He broke down sobbing while asking his girlfriend to marry him.

Slacker doesn’t think mentioning her beauty is a way to propose to a woman. He thinks he should have said something about her inner qualities and personality not on her physical beauty. Slacker says he cried a little in his proposal but didn’t completely break down crying. He thinks if neither of the people cries the marriage won’t last.

Steve got mad that the man was trembling and sobbing during the proposal. He was mad at the guy for making him embarrassed for the man proposing. He doesn’t think the man should be crying more than the woman getting proposed to. He says no woman wants to be proposed to by a mushy, blubbering, emotional man. He thinks the man wants the woman to cry during the proposal to show he did a good job. He thinks crying shows weakness even though he cried at the Justin Bieber movie.

Do you think it’s a turn off for the man to get emotional or is it sweet? Did your husband cry while proposing?

I think it’s fine if the guy tears up a little but I probably wouldn’t accept the proposal if the man broke down sobbing. Women are the sensitive ones who need the shoulder to cry on not men.

Honeymoon Horror
Yi!
A man was on a flight to his honeymoon and got so drunk that the plane had to do an emergency landing and arrest him for disturbing the flight. The man was left in jail at the Cayman Islands to face charges for being drunk and disorderly, while the bride continued on the flight to Costa Rica without her groom!
 
Slacker has seen a couple trying to parasail fall into the ocean on their honeymoon. He also saw another couple fall off of their scooter in Cozumel after they hit a speed bump which caused major injuries. He thinks the bride should have stayed with their groom considering they were newlyweds and going off on their honeymoon together.

Steve thinks Lil’ D needs to take his wife on the honeymoon they never went on. He says if he were the bride he also would have left the groom in jail and waited for him to arrive in Costa Rica. It’s his fault he got wasted enough to get arrested and bride was right to continue on with the flight.

What’s your crazy honeymoon horror story?

I am still in high school therefore; I have not had a wedding let alone a honeymoon. I know, I know, boring life of a single, high school intern.

OPP: Friend's Crappy Kids
Yi!
Today’s OPP is from Rachel

Yi! My best friend has 2 bratty kids and she likes to just drop by unexpectedly. Her kids jump on my couch, terrorize my dogs, destroy my house, etc. She tells them to stop after I say something to them, but she isn't firm and they don't listen to her. It seems like she comes to my house to get a "break" from her husband and kids while they destroy the happiness of my family. She is a very good friend and I want to stay friends with her but her kids make my family and I miserable. I don't even go out in public with them anymore because I'm so embarrassed by those kids. She has 2 kids and I have 4 and even my kids are embarrassed. What do I do?
 
Slacker says his kids misbehave in his house but not in others. He thinks it’s disrespectful for kids to run wild in someone else’s house. He thinks you can absolutely tell someone else’s kids to quit messing around if it’s in his house and not theirs. He thinks she should tell the neighbor not to come over anymore if her kids will disrespect her house like that.

Steve thinks you have to ask the parents for permission to scold their kids in your house. He thinks she has to speak up and tell the neighbor not to come over until the kids can behave. He thinks it’s wrong that the neighbor lets her kids use Rachel’s home as a bouncy castle/playroom.

Should she confront her neighbor’s kids? If yes how so?

I think she needs to confront her neighbor and tell her she’s isn’t welcome in their house until her children know how to respect their family and home.

GMD: Last Chance
Yi!
 Jake and Cassidy are currently separated because Jake was putting too much time into his job and not enough time into his wife. Jake wants a second chance to get counseling and take her on date nights. Cassidy thinks he’s has plenty of time to fix their relationship and wants a divorce.

Slacker wants to know why Cassidy agreed to come on the show if she wanted to end it. He wonders if Jake his job whether it would help their relationship and help Cassidy stay in the marriage.  He thinks it’s an awkward situation. He thinks it’s obvious that this is Jake’s last cry for help to save the marriage.

Steve thinks it’s strange that they want to solve this over the radio and doesn’t think going on the show will save the relationship. He thinks if Cassidy can’t love Jake anymore than there’s no point in going on with the relationship. If she’s not in love with him anymore then the relationship won’t last.

Should she give him a second chance? Is he trying hard enough to save the relationship?

I think they should work through their problems and try to fix the relationship. Every marriage has it’s trials but, that’s what proves your love for the other person, is that you’re willing to fight for the love you have for them and not give up on it. If she really did love him, she wouldn’t let him go.

Relations Tape Went Public
Yi!
A teacher at Forest Heights Middle School accidentally showed a naked picture of herself to her entire class. She was trying to transfer something from her iCloud to the schools iPad and in the process accidentally showed pictures of her. One student said she was performing sexual acts in the photos. She apologized and sent all of the student letters saying she was sorry!

Slacker says he had relations on tape and he shot a lot of footage… Awkward.  His tape went semi public. Because he was in a band there was footage on the camera he used. He had to show the band footage at a promotional event and while it was playing it showed him having relations. Nice.

Steve admits to having relations in a picture, but never a tape.

Have you ever had a relations tape released to the public?

OPP: Too Hot for Friend's Wedding
Yi!
Natalie wasn’t invited to be in her friend’s wedding when all of her friends were asked to be bride’s maids. She is the only one left out of her group of 5 friends. She says she is hotter than the bride and is more popular. She thinks the bride doesn’t want to be showed up by her as a bride’s maid.

Slacker thinks this girl is kid of mean and the friend is better off without her. She had a confidence value that is absolutely remarkable to him. He thinks she believes she is very hot and is arrogant. He asked her if she is a genuine friend and asked if she talks about the bride like this all the time? She replied that the bride obviously doesn’t find her as a great find because she didn’t ask her to be a brides amid. He thinks that the bride would never think that and that the brides don’t do that. He thinks that there’s underlying issues between Natalie and the bride. He wants to believe that Natalie is a good friend and is just saying these mean things about the bride because she is hurt.

Steve thinks her confidence is sexy and she is stating facts. He knows that brides don’t want anyone upstaging them.

What advice can you give to Natalie?

I think Natalie is kind of crazy because any person that toots their horn like she did has issues. That isn’t confidence that’s cockiness and that is a tall tell sign that she really is insecure. I think the bride is better off without her and she clearly saw right through her and doesn’t want a snake like Natalie in her bridal party. I wouldn’t.

Awkward Ex Encoutners
Yi!
A man had an affair with his wife but he broke up with the mistress. But she won’t go away. She keeps harassing the wife. She keeps being reminded that she is her husband’s ex.

Slacker ran into his ex wife a couple days after signing the divorce papers. But he ran into his ex at a valet parking while he was on a date with a new girl. His ex wife just so happened to live in the same building as the new woman. Talk about a huge coincidence. But he had no idea she lived there. To make it more awkward when he saw the ex with her new man, his ex brother in law ran up to him thinking he was there to catch the ex with a new man. It was a complete mess.

Steve said it is weird when two people break up and have to divvy up friends. It makes it weird because you have to have a conversation with them and ask if they are going to the friend’s wedding or something.

What is your awkward ex encounter?

I ran into my ex at the restaurant I worked at and literally walked right into the new girl. And did I mention he cheated on me with the new girl? Yeah, it was awful. I was upset. It was a fresh break up and I was a mess. And another one bites the dust.

OPP: Husband Wants to Play Softball
Yi!
Yi! My husband is thinking about joining a softball team during the summer and I'm afraid to let him play because I know that he is going to embarrass himself.  I've played ball with him before and I put him to shame. I don't want him to be the butt of everyone's ones jokes. He hasn't made up his mind yet but, but I want to try and convince him otherwise. Should I let him play and get embarrassed or try to convince him not to?
Kim

Slacker says if his wife wanted to sing karaoke then he would definitely say she can’t. He would say that he thinks it’s great but he would get in a massive car accident so she s=could be at his bedside! Just kidding. But really, he would prevent her from doing something like that because it would embarrass her! He had a girlfriend and she believed she was a great cook and they were going to invite people over for a dinner party and she was a bad cook, he lied
and he thinks that is what Kim is going to have to do.

Steve says that if he was going to be embarrassed then he wouldn’t let the other person do anything. It would embarrass Kim to watch her husband play a horrible game. Maybe she can get one of his buddies to help tell him not to join!

What should Kim do?

OPP: At Work Husband UPDATE
Yi!
Candy's OPP was that her husband was not happy about her friend at work being a man. They gossip together and are friends, but he asked her not to hang out with him. Well, he found a red light ticket in the mail with him in her car. Candy updates us that he threw her out of the house and she is now staying with her guy friend that her husband banned her from seeing! What are your thoughts about this?

Slacker is infuriated that she is staying with this guy! He thinks she is crazy for staying with him even though she isn’t sleeping with him. But he thinks she is lying about that too!

Both Slacker and Steve wish her good luck to getting her hubby back!

Run in With a Stranger
Yi!
Mahamed Abdi  in Seattle was arrested after being denied a bite of  a stranger's burrito. The man demanded a bite of it, and when told no, he punched the victim and ran off. Police found him and he is in custody.

Slacker had a person at a restaurant ask him if he could try his calamari! He of course said no, and claims his guy was a freak. Order your own bucko! It is weird when someone you don’t know wants your food. You don’t know where their mouth had been. He has been groped by a woman and assumed it was his wife and it wasn’t! Awkward!  

Steve just laughs at the news story. He assaulted a man and gave him a headlock as he thought it was his buddy so he went up to the back of him and put him in a headlock. He went to court and everything even though it was an accident!

What is your run in with a stranger?

I have many, but one specific time was when I was at my locker and this guy thought I was his girlfriend turns me around and smooches me. It was very weird and I was speechless.

Blaze of Glory
Yi!

Russia Today anchor and correspondent Liz Wahl announced her resignation live on air Wednesday, saying she couldn't "be part of a network that whitewashes the actions" of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Wahl began her remarks by referencing comments another personality on the government-funded TV network made criticizing Russia's invasion of the Ukrainian region of Crimea.

"Last night RT made headlines when one of our anchors went on the record and said Russian intervention in Crimea is wrong and indeed, as a reporter on this network, I face many ethical and moral challenges," Wahl said.

Slacker and Steve said the thing that sucks about working in radio is you never get to have a blaze of glory moment. When management decides you’re done, you don't get to go on the air one more time. Everyone kind of pretends that you never existed.

How did you quit a job and go out in a blaze of glory?

Drunk or Kid
Yi!

All of the best stories usually start one of two ways: "One time when I was a kid..." or "I was so drunk I..." Tell us your crazy story and we'll try to guess if you were drunk or a kid when it happened.

OPP: Parents Assume They Can Stay
Yi! Today's OPP is from Candy. She writes:

Yi! My parents moved out of state a little over a year ago and my step mother has medical problems. Her doctors are here so they have to come for tests. Well, each time they just invite themselves to stay with my husband and I without asking. At first it was a few days and now it's becoming more frequent and lasting a week or more! They use all of our stuff and take long showers costing us extra money. It's not the money that really bothers us but it's that we feel like guests in our own home and we cannot enjoy our time alone. We are newlyweds and we feel like we live with them. Please help with how to address this with them!
Candy

Slacker thinks it makes a huge difference the reason they're coming is for medical reasons. He says your parents just showing up at your house is never ideal, but they are not choosing to come. He also thinks the fact Candy and her husband are newlyweds complicates the situation more than it normally would.

Steve has a nephew that is coming to town. He says it is a planned visit, so it's okay. If his nephew just showed up and wanted to hang out and have fun, it would be a totally different story. Steve said the hardest part of having family in your home is making allowances and room for them. Most people get comfortable in their own home and now Candy can't do that.

How can Candy address the situation without insulting her dad and step-mom?

GMD: Make a Career Switch
20110224, Dr Fred Caldwell, Auburn Veterinarian magazine, Therapeutic Equine Pro
Yi!

Leslie always wanted to be a veterinarian when she was growing up. She hates her current job, and lately she has seen a lot of signs telling her to follow her dream (it's the year of the horse, a dog grooming place opened by their house, etc). She says they can afford it, so she wants to quit her job and go to school to become a veterinarian. Ray says that he wants his wife to be happy, but it is crazy to throw everything away to chase a silly childhood dream.

Slacker thinks Leslie is a little crazy for pointing to the universal signs to making a career change. He also says that at some level, we all find a way to be unhappy with our jobs.

Steve thinks Ray is a little jealous that Leslie is starting to take steps to follow her dream. When it comes down to it, Steve thinks Ray is probably being more logical.

Whose side are you on?

20 Things Men Over 30 Should Never Wear
Yi!
Below is a list compiled by men, for men, to prevent them from further embarrassment.

20 Things Men Over 30 Should Never Wear:
1. Fedoras
Are you guest starring on "Mad Men"? No? Then don’t wear a fedora.
2. Those diaper pants.
Your old ass has no chance with these so don’t even try.
3. Choker necklaces.
Unless you are marooned on an island and you made that necklace to pass the time, then you have no business wearing it.
4. Crazy busy shoes.
If your shoes have more than four colors and have multiple patterns then they get the boot. Pun intended.
5. Running shoes as everyday shoes.
Nothing says, “I’ve broken my New Year’s resolution to get in shape” more than wearing running shoes with jeans.
6. Capes.
Dracula called. He said, “Nah, you can have the cape. Even I know they look dumb.”
7. Dangly earrings.
“I should really take this off.” — George Michael, on his dangly earring.
8. Crocs.
Unless you are gardening or working in a kitchen these have no excuse to be anywhere near your feet. NO EXCUSE.
9. Overalls.
Wearing them for a purpose, aka, work, is fine. Otherwise, no.
10. Mock turtlenecks.
For when you want to look like the long lost member of Color Me Badd.
11. Uggs.
No reason to wear them.
12. Skull jewelry when you are not in fact a sorcerer.
Or a scary biker dude, because in that case you do you.
13. Duster coat.
Is your last name Van Helsing? Are you wrasslin’ cattle? I didn’t think so.
14. A tie + vest + no shirt combo.
It’s like Magic Mike, only without the magic. So your look is pretty much just “Mike.”
15. Free T-shirts from your bank
Or from wherever.
16. Nut-hugging pants.
Looks like 28 cents and a penis.
17. Fake tans.
OK, not an actual thing to wear, but also not an actual tan.
18. Wrists full of bracelets
Called “arm parties”?
19. Flat-brimmed caps.
With the exception being if you are a hip-hop legend, i.e. the Wu-Tang Clan gets a pass. Not that they needed one, though.
20. Really, anything Johnny Depp is wearing nowadays.
 
Slacker he wonders who came up with this list and sound a little bitter about “being on the list.” He hates the girls who are into Hello Kitty when they are teens. He asks if there is an age if a female stop wearing a thongs. Or when woman reach 40 you have to wear a one-piece swim suit?  He had a hat like Walter White’s from Breaking Bad and he likes it, a lot. But he could never wear it. He accuses Steve of wearing tennis shoes with jeans. Lil’ D said Slackers earrings are a little big, but he can rock them. Slacker admits to wearing crocs in his garage.

Steve said he likes to wear them because he never knows when he will need to do workout stuff. But he refuses to take the stairs, like Slacker. He accuses Slacker of wearing a ton of bracelets on his arm. Slacker replies he has Children’s Hospital bracelets, but admits if he didn’t wear those he would have an arm full of bracelets.

What can you add to the list?

Men over 30 should never wear comic book t-shirts. Avengers, Justice League or not, I don’t care-- you look stupid.

House Sitting Horrors
Yi!
Lauren Stephens was watching her neighbor's house in Balwin,Missouri when her friends cooked meth in their kitchen casung thousands of dollars in damage. The chemicals frm the meth seeped into the walls, sink and plumbing. She was charged with felony property damage.

Slacker says their house is screwed. His friend started getting handy and into home improvement classes. So someone asked this guy to watch their house. He decided to give them new floors while their out of town. He tears out their carpet, very badly. He realized they have a massive termite problem and tried to clean it all up and put the carpet back and failed epically. He screwed up their trim of their house. He was just trying to b a nice guy. The people were very upset.

What house sitting horror has happened to you?

OPP: Relationship is Too Normal
Yi!
Yi! I’ve been dating my boyfriend for about a year and, overall, I think we have a pretty good relationship. We moved in together about a month ago and we do everything normal couples do like get dinner and go out to the movies. Sometimes he’ll surprise me with flower or candy which I like, but again, I feel like every other couple out there.
My problem is that this is my first real long term relationship I’m wondering if I’m settling because he’s the first guy I’ve been with. I’m only twenty six years old and I don’t want to waste anymore of his or my time in a relationship if it ultimately isn’t going to be fulfilling. Are there any warning signs I should be looking out for that show I may be settling, I just don’t want to regret any part of my life, but he’s such a great guy. I just don’t know what to do. 
Hope
 
Slacker thinks everyone is going to be mad at her. He says that if women believe in the intuition thing, then something must be telling her this guy isn’t right for her. He thinks it’s weird that she’s 26. He doesn’t understand her attitude because who wouldn’t want a normal relationship and be grounded? But he thinks that she wants other women to either reassure her that she is going to be okay, or to move on to something that strikes her interests.

Steve said he is mad at Hope for not liking this guy more than he’s worth! He sounds like a great guy! He thinks she was expecting the fireworks all the time, but now it’s not and that’s why she wrote us. It sounds like she’s bored. She doesn’t even say the word love in her letter. Does she even love him?

What advice can you give Hope?

I think she should accept it for a little bit longer. She may be impulsive like me and wants change, right now. But life doesn’t work like that. She should wait it out before making any drastic decisions.
