FOOTBALL: Fun or Fatal?

Yi!

A new survey by the Associated Press reveals that 50% of parents aren't comfortable letting their child play football. 50% of parents aren't comfortable letting their child play hockey, 45% wrestling. A mom attended her son's high school football practice and was shocked by the way the coaches yelled, used degrading language, and slapped their helmets.

Slacker makes a good point, saying do you see people wearing a helmet when they ride their bikes? They have those studies from when NFL players die and they do brain surgery and they are all kinds of messed up. Slacker's son is in his 2nd season of flag football and he's getting excited about being able to soon tackle people and Slacker is not too happy about that. He did say, aren't all sports dangerous in some way? Should gymnastics be banned or ice skating?

Steve says then why isn't soccer banned? Back in the day, Steve played high school football, QB to be exact. The team was the worst team out of all high schools so he eventually quit but before quitting, he did get a concussion once. He calls it, "getting your bell rung."

Would you let your son play football?

I absolutely would! I want my child to have a passion for something.

Wild Weddings


Yi!

There have been tons of stories in the news recently about wild weddings. Fights, thefts, arrests…the kinds of things that aren't supposed to happen at weddings. One groomsman had tried to steal 55 unopened cards and gift cards from his friend of 12 years. He hid the $6,800 in his bag then went back to the party like nothing happened. He was caught and arrested. Another groomsman had hit on a pregnant reception worker… Wonder if he's still married.

Slacker says some couple had broken up right before their wedding. Since everything was majority already paid for, like the food and venue, the man had a party for kids in need rather just waste that money. Slacker can't believe the groomsman who was supposed to be your friend for years would actually try to take money from him. As the movie Frozen says, "Let It Go!"

Steve says the guy who tried stealing all that money is genius for doing it during the wedding. This conversation very easily turned into teaching Steve all about Frozen.

Have you been witness to a wild wedding?

OPP: Addicted to Porn

Yi!

My husband has an issue with downloading and using so much porn by himself that he is not really into real relations anymore. I'm happy to include anything he wants to do..trouble is I don't know what he wants and he's too shy to tell or show me. Our relations life started out awkward, virgins are not good at teaching other virgins how to have relations. Virgins are also not good at knowing what they want and how to ask for it. But we aren't those people anymore, at least I'm not, and my husband is cutting me out of our relations life instead of doing the hard work of growing up. We have relations about 4 times a month, usually 2 times, and sometimes none, and only when I'm ovulating. Divorce is not going to happen, but I can't live like this anymore. We have tried counseling with someone he chose and that didn't get us anywhere. I don't trust that he's ever going to try harder to tell the truth and stop hiding it. My hope is that you'll have some advice for me. Too many promises remain broken. What do I/we do?
Sarah

Slacker thinks if he is truly addicted to this, then their relationship is doomed. Now that he is seeing this other stuff, he is warped to this new perspective now. The wife is saying though, that she's not the same old virgin anymore. Back in the day, when he was on a tour bus and watching a bunch of that stuff, it changes what you expect in real life.

Steve says it's called having self-control. He says it's a bad idea that they both started out as rookies. So this husband thinks it's a step down from his wife after watching these videos.

What's your advice for her?

Cheapskates

Yi!

Slacker knows someone who went to a chain buffet restaurant for dinner and brought plastic bags in her purse. She was stuffing the food into the bags to take home. She was caught and kicked out. I mean, do you know how much of a cheapskate you have to be for them to actually kick you out of a buffet?!

Slacker says his kids eat a lot of waffles so he moves them from the big box they come in, into a big plastic bag that way the food stays fresh. Then he'll wash the plastic bag and reuse it! Slacker also knew someone who would pour cheap Vodka into an expensive Vodka bottle. Similarly, when Slacker is at concerts, he pours his alcohol in bags and tape them to his side.

Steve blew up Slackers spot saying he used to wash straws and bags… Uh! Steve says it is all you can eat so what's the difference between leaving with the food in your stomach or in your purse? Steve will smoke half of a cigarette then save the rest to smoke it later, he needs to save those 50 cents!

How cheap are you?

Lazy

YI!

There are people that climb mountains, people that run marathons and then, there's the rest of us. The people too lazy to change the channel when we can't find the remote and too lazy to make dinner so we eat cereal for a week straight!

Parents Confess the Laziest Thing They've Ever Done
Every parent knows that no matter how tired you are, you never get a day off.
Babble, a popular parenting blog, wanted to find out what lazy things parents find themselves doing out of sheer exhaustion. So, they posted this on Facebook to get some real answers from moms and dads: "Finish this sentence in regard to parenting. I was so lazy, one time I ..."
Here are some of the best responses:
• "didn't feel like cooking so I fed the kids cereal for dinner. Five times in one week."
• "didn't feel like washing the dirty dishes stacking up in my kitchen, so I threw them out and bought paper plates."
• "didn't get around to washing my son's uniform so I just sprayed it with Febreeze and made him wear it again."
• "texted my son in the next room that dinner was ready."
• "bought new underwear at Target to avoid laundry."
• "picked up fast food on the way home from grocery shopping because I was too tired to actually cook anything I just bought."
• "verbally played hide and go seek. Just guessed where they were hiding and they would yell yes or no."
• "slapped a diaper over my sleeping daughter's bathing suit, instead of changing her into her nightgown and risk waking her up."
• "let my son's swimming lessons count as his "bath," and not for just one time."

Hungry? Lazy? Try Push for Pizza
We've all been there; sitting on the couch, wondering what to eat while we let the TV screen dictate our day. Pizza seems like a good idea, but calling/heating up/ordering online? Not so much. Those conundrums born of laziness are no more. Push for Pizza is here.
The app is dead simple — push a button, and pizza shows up a bit later. After you put in your payment info and location (done once after downloading), you just… push. The cost of the pizza, delivery charge, and tip are all taken care of.
Push for Pizza also takes the guess-work out of deciding on toppings. You get cheese or pepperoni — that's it. As for which pizzerias you can order from, it's not quite clear. The app gives a selection for you to choose from — if any are available in your area. In our testing, it didn't work out so well.
Push for Pizza is available on iTunes, so give it a shot if you're hungry.

Too Lazy to Unlock Your Phone?
What's the biggest hassle of modern existence? Undoubtedly, it's spending an average of 2.3 seconds to unlock your smartphone, according to a very serious assertion by Google's Deepak Chandra.
This "cumbersome" process can lead to security risks, he further claims, with "more than 50 percent of users" opting to not lock their devices rather than tapping out a code. But Chandra and his team at Google's Advanced Technology and Projects division are about to save us all. They and "digital tattoo" company VivaLnk have created a weird, David Cronenbergian artifact that sticks to your body; simply press your phone against it, and it automatically bypasses the code-entering stage.
The nickel-sized skin patch lasts for five days, is shower-proof, and is for sale now for Motorola's Moto X phones ($9.99 for a 10-pack). The debut of the digital tattoo has already genuinely or sarcastically excited the body/machine-nexus crowd.
I would like to point out that, for it to work, you must first turn on the phone's display and then hold it for a moment against your fake tattoo. That means a loss of at least a precious second. Still, if Google's calculations are correct, this thing could save more than a full day's minute.

Slacker says that Steve is one of the laziest people he has ever known. He says that a woman called in one time to tell them that she would rather buy a DVD On Demand rather than get up and put a DVD in the player. Slacker calls Steve out on him buying new underwear instead of washing them!

Steve says he doesn't have any baking sheets; he uses tin foil because it's easier to clean up and going to the store to buy a pan takes way to much effort. He admits to buying underwear instead of washing them, says it's just easier! Steve says he would rather say "Tin Foil" instead of "Aluminum Foil" because its less syllables.

What is the laziest thing you have ever done?

OPP: Attracted to Hot Teacher

YI!

Cheryl just met her son's 3rd grade teacher, who turned out to be a total hottie! She is wondering if dating him would make things awkward for everyone. What do you think Cheryl should do? Should she go for it?

Slacker says you absolutely don't do it! He says why are you asking them the question if you already know the answer. Slacker asks if she thinks that she is the only woman that thinks the teacher is attractive. He asks if Cheryl really thinks that this will work out. Slacker thinks that it might not be that big of a deal being in third grade, it's not like its high school.

Steve says why you wouldn't do it!? He says what could go wrong? Better grades, favoritism? Steve says those aren't bad things! He is in total favor of the woman going for the teacher.

What advice do you have for Cheryl?

Intern Tyler

Resume Lies

YI!

According to a recent study, 58% of hiring managers have caught someone lying on their resume! They range from lying about previous work experience to winning a gold medal in the Olympics!

Nearly 60% of hiring managers say they've caught lies on a resume, according to a poll conducted by Harris Poll and released by CareerBuilder. About one third of those employers have observed an uptick in resume fiction in the years following the recession. The survey polled 2,188 hiring managers and HR professionals throughout various industries.

1. "Like father like son?"
"Applicant included job experience that was actually his father's. Both father and son had the same name (one was Sr., one was Jr.)."
2. Hail to the Thief
"Applicant claimed to be the assistant to the prime minister of a foreign country that doesn't have a prime minister."
3. Foul Shots
"Applicant claimed to have been high school basketball free throw champion. He admitted it was a lie in the interview."
4. Fool's Gold
"Applicant claimed to have been an Olympic medalist."
5. To the Dogs
"Applicant claimed to have been a construction supervisor. The interviewer learned the bulk of his experience was in the completion of a doghouse some years prior."
6. Baby Genius
"Applicant claimed to have 25 years experience at age 32."
7. Sitter to the Stars
"Applicant claimed to have worked for 20 years as the babysitter of known celebrities such as Tom Cruise, Madonna, etc."
8. Historical Fiction
"Applicant applied twice for the same position and provided different work history on each application."
9. Brief Stint
"Applicant listed three jobs over the past several years. Upon contacting the employers, the interviewer learned that the applicant had worked at one for two days, another for one day, and not at all for the third."
10. Déjà You
"Applicant applied to a position with a company who had just terminated him. He listed the company under previous employment and indicated on his resume that he had quit."

What's surprising is that fibbing isn't always fatal. The survey found that while 51% of employers would automatically dismiss a candidate caught lying, 40% said it would depend upon what the candidate lied about, and 7% said they'd be willing to overlook a lie if they like a candidate.

Slacker said that he was a "Baggage Technician" even though he was just a baggage handler. He said that a guy that worked at the radio station claimed he worked with George Lucas. Slacker said that the same general manager bought a dinner with Lucas and decided to talk about the other employee to find something in common, Lucas claimed he had never heard of him before.

Steve wonders if Slacker puts "Lead Guitar Player for Warrant" on his resume.

Pics Got Out

Yi!

By now, you've probably heard about the nude celebrity photo scandal. It's definitely a sad story, but celebrities aren't the only ones that have had their risqué photos surface. Maybe you accidently sent it to your boss, your parents, or seen them online.

Slacker says he doesn't take any weird pictures. He's only seen the Jennifer Lawrence pictures. He knows someone who went out and had some pictures taken old western style and they wanted to share them! They were fairly new to social media / iPhone apps so they didn't notice they hit 'share all' and ALL of Facebook saw their Jennifer styled photos as well.

Steve says there has never been a bad or embarrassing picture of him out there, but he has done some home movies! He has definitely seen just about all of the leaked pictures though.

Have your naughty pictures ever gotten out?

Strange Addictions

Yi!

James Duckworth is a 17-year-old man who is addicted to potato chips. The addiction started when he was only 7-years-old!! He said he was eating 40 bags a week before he decided to get help. He says he "wasn't fussy about the brand, as long as the chips were already salted with very little flavor." He hates 'wet food' like ketchup, spaghetti, and if someone was eating baked beans it would make him physically cringe.

Slacker is willing to admit to all his addictions. Plants VS zombies is his newest addiction, he will wake up in the morning, play the levels he knows he can beat multiple times, and he cannot stop playing. Slacker and Steve both absolutely hate change, but the exception for Slacker is if he has pennies in his hand, he can't help but smell his hands over and over. He hates that smell but he won't stop smelling… Weird! Slackers wife's addiction is chewing gum, blow a bubble, flip it in her mouth, and swallow it.

Steve says James won't eat some of the best foods! Steve saw the game and can't believe THAT'S the game he plays in the corner by himself. Steve does smell his hands after he gets gas, but who doesn't!

Do you have an addiction to something out of the ordinary?

OPP: Son's Birthday Wish

Yi!

Every parent wants to give their child everything they want. The son of today's OPP has one birthday wish, but she's not sure she can give it to him.

Yi guys,
My son is turning 6 in a little over a week. His dad and I are divorced and he splits his time between our houses. My son will be with his dad on his birthday and said he wants all of us to have dinner at his dad's house for his birthday. I told him I didn't know if that was possible and he broke my heart by telling me that's all he wants for his birthday. His dad cheated on me and now lives with the woman he cheated with. We do what we have to for the sake of our son, but I don't know that I can go hang out at my ex's house with him and the woman he cheated on me with. What should I do?
Kara

Slacker says this is where you suck it up and you go! She can hate the bimbo the husband is with now, but you're a parent first. It might though, give the kid some hope that it will bring his family back together and everything will be alright, but that's not the truth. Steve asked if Slacker would do it and he said he would like to be the bigger man and do it but honestly he would cause a scene (admitting he's petty by the way) and ruin the birthday.

Steve says this little boy is about to learn a life lesson. Explain to the kid that you can't get everything in life. If the parents don't crush this child's heart right away, he's going to next be saying, "Let's go to the park together tomorrow!"

What's your advice for her?

She has to do it, for her son. Just make sure to look better than the new chick! Ha!

Bug Related Incident

Yi!

One lucky family found Jesus in a moth, they said it was the sign they needed. A woman in England lives on her own so she hadn't been in her guest room for a couple months. When she finally opened the door, the entire bed was overtaken by wasps! The bug exterminator said in his 45 years of working, he had never seen anything like it. Blake Lively was even attacked by bees on her birthday during her last day on a shoot.

Slacker is so shocked how this woman didn't hear all those wasps in her room by just walking pass! His favorite story right now though is the Jesus image in a moth. Slacker was doing yard work, poking holes in the grass. When he was walking by, he saw what he thought was a hermit crab crawling into one of the holes. He sat in the grass playing plants VS zombies until the hermit crab came back out. When it finally arrived, he realized it was definitely a giant pregnant spider.

Steve is a little upset that Slacker would kill a pregnant spider. Steve actual found out the "crab" Slacker tried to catch is actually called an orb weaver.

What's your bug related incident?

When I was younger I was playing dress up with all my mom's old clothes in the basement. After walking around in her heels for a few hours, my right foot was starting to hurt, I took the shoe off and crickets started jumping out. Gross!

UPDATE: Stop Sister's Wedding

Jen, the girl that broke up her sister's wedding because she is in love with the groom came on the air to share an update with us. Trevor, the groom didn't show up to the wedding and he had disappeared. She got this email from him and she wanted to share it with us:

Jen,
I wanted you to know that I'm okay. I've been staying with a buddy for a few days trying figure this all out. First, I want to say that I really understand how big of a leap it was for you to talk to me and I appreciate your honesty. I couldn't lie to myself, or to Amanda, and go through with the wedding because I have thought about that kiss too. What you said to me made me realize that I couldn't marry Amanda because it wouldn't be fair to her. She is an amazing woman and I couldn't marry her knowing that I was thinking about another woman, especially her sister. I know it will take some time but it will be better this way in the long run. I just didn't know how to tell her that on our wedding day and that's why I ran. I know it was cowardly, but it was the only thing that seemed logical that day.

Jen I also want you to know I ran because I couldn't be "that guy." I couldn't be the kind of man that leaves his bride at the altar to get with her sister. I need to take some time to figure all this out. I'm sorry.

Trevor

What do you think the email means?
