After booking my 80-year-old mother on a flight from Florida to Nevada, I called the airline to go over her needs. The representative listened patiently as I requested a wheelchair and an attendant for my mother because of her arthritis and impaired vision. My apprehension lightened a bit when the woman assured me that everything would be taken care of. I thanked her profusely. "Oh, you're welcome," she replied. I was about to hang up when she cheerfully asked, "And will your mother need a rental car?"
At a family get together, a young boy of about 6 years of age asks his father, "What does fornication mean?" The dad is freaked out by the question and demands to know, "Where did you hear a word like that?" "From Uncle Charlie," responds the son. Dad charges off to confront his brother. Charlie doesn't have a clue what the problem is and explains that all he said was, "For-an-occasion like this I don't mind driving all the way up the valley."

For three solid hours, the lady sitting next to a man on an airplane had told him about her grand-children. She had even produced a plastic, foldout photo album of all nine of them. She finally realized that she had dominated the entire conversation and said, "Oh, I've done all the talking. I am so sorry. I know you certainly must have something to say. Please, forgive me. You go ahead now. Tell me . . . what do you think of my grandchildren?" His answer was: "Solly, no speeka da Anglees."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Terrance McCoy, 24 in Pontiac, Michigan 2 years for swiping the date's car PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - A Detroit man has been sentenced to at least two years in prison for stealing a woman's car after skipping out on the check during their first date. Twenty-four-year-old Terrance McCoy was sentenced Friday in Oakland County Circuit Court to two to 10 years in prison. McCoy pleaded no contest Sept. 18 to unlawfully driving away a vehicle. A no-contest plea is not an admission of guilt but is treated as a conviction at sentencing. Police say McCoy dined with the 27-year-old Southfield woman on April 24 at a restaurant in Ferndale. The woman told investigators McCoy said he forgot his wallet in her car and asked for the keys. Police say McCoy then took off in the car.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Wanda Re: White Teeth scam Dear Webby I am sure you have seen those white teeth ads on the net, and now even in the spam. The ads claim a mother in a town near you invented a free or under $10 method for getting white teeth. This "mother" is always in a town near where you are, no matter how far and fast you travel. Obviously the name of the town is fake and just a browser gimmic, like the ones that look up your time. Personally, I don't go any further, once I know they have deliberately lied to me, but some of my friends believe their claims are real. What is your take on that? Wanda Dear Wanda It is just a scam. Spammers get commissions for every sheep they send to the scammers. The scammers offer a free sample, then once they have brainwashed you into trusting them, they tell you that you have to pay $2.95 shipping. With your credit card, of course. So you authorize $2.95 and give them your numbers and security code. Then on next page, the one that shows the receipt, the amount has grown to $12.90 or something like that. There is, of course, no phone number or email address to complain to, but some people found a chat link and were able to cancel everything by threatening dire consequences. Others apparently got stuck with automatically recurring $80+ charges every month. My advice is to stay as far as possible away from that scam. By the way, white teeth only look good on pictures. In real life they look phoney and vain. You get a lot more positive attention, if you open an extra button on your blouse or shirt. Have FUN! DearWebby

Mother had decided to trim her household budget wherever possible, so instead of having a dress dry- cleaned she washed it by hand. Proud of her savings, she boasted to my father, "Just think, Fred, we are fifteen dollars richer because I washed this dress by hand." "Good," my dad quickly replied. "Wash it five more times and we can pay the phone bill!"
