    I'm a little surprised nobody has mentioned old people body functions - talk about don't give a shit. Burp. Pooooooooot.

    I dunno, my take is most people are pretty good at keeping their opinion to themselves; however, even the best people, under stress, say the darndest things - I do my best not to make the situation worse (there is no better in the situation). Seeing your spouse die, or faced with their own mortality - pretty stressful*

    People who used to live across the street from me were semi retired and would make oak, roll-top desks for supplemental income. He was 360 lbs, she 90 soaking wet. The first few months I lived there, the vile things I heard from both of them at each other almost had me convinced that shots would be fired soon.....

    About a year after hearing this stuff, he landed in the hospital with some kind of medical issue (not gun shot) - and I was talking to her; never have I see someone so lost without their spouse. A couple years later, it was her turn for the hospital and he was, if anything, worse off than her.... it was, to me, kind of an eye-opening moment to realize that I have little business judging how they get along (now if there was physical abuse, that'd be a different deal - but in their case, my money would be all on her).

    *which reminds me of a pastor explaining that people fear public speaking more than dying - which means that they'd rather be in the casket rather than giving the eulogy.

    One of my personal favorites!

    I ain't waitin' I have said what I wanted for years to the tune of Loren actually putting his hand over my mouth in public at times...

    here is one of my favorites:

    "Why don't you have a nice tall glass of shut the F&!$ up"

    It's so true for a lot of folks. Notwithstanding everything they might have to be upbeat about in life, the first instinct is to find something to complain about.

She has been in the rehab center for the last 3 weeks getting limbered up to walk again...I drove her home last night and as we wre leaving one of the attendents says to me... "hopefully you'll be happier at home. good bye audrey."

    apparently the coffee wasn't very good at the facility and she let them know.
    apparently the nurses were too loud at night and she let them know.
    apparently the food wasn't always hot and she let them know.
    apparently the medicines were not delivered quite on time and she let them know.
    apparently the bed was too hard and she let them know.
    apparently the room was too hot/cold and she let them know.
    apparently her roomate was too wimpy and she let her know.
    apparently .................................................. .................................................. ............................

    had that problem as long as I can remember. If anything, I get more reserved with age. Dad says whatever whenever - 82. He's like honey badger. Really doesn't GAS.

    I had a boss one time tell me "there's people that call a spade a spade and then there's you, who comes right out with "That m*er F*ing shovel""

    I wasn't sure how to take that. Oh well. I probably was asking for a shovel. To brain and then bury somebody with. :| I used to take my job a lot more seriously.

    I think I dropped the F-bomb at work the other morning at work, about 8:00a so there aren't a lot of people in yet. I suppose I might have been loud - neighbors said "AH, I hear Pat."

    It's a technical term, go back to sleep. lol. I apologize, they say "No, we enjoy it when you go off and say everything that everyone else is afraid to say"

    it's an expensive curse. I can't say how many times it's cost me a lot of money... I'll probably run out of things to say by the time I'm really old like pdub. Right now, I'm just sorta old.

    Pretty good, but you're lying. And we all know it.

    No Dan, you don't have that in you. Some folks live entirely too long and get bitter (like my mom did) and some others can't possibly live long enough or have enough fun doing it (that's you).
