To help a friend lose weight, I told her that she should switch to lower-fat foods, including skim milk. When she said her family would drink only whole milk, I suggested that she keep their regular container and refill it with skim milk. This worked for quite a while, until her daughter asked one morning whether the milk was okay. "Sure, it's fine," my friend answered, fearing she had been found out. "Why do you ask?" The daughter explained, "Well, according to the expiration date, this milk expired two years ago!"
An RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) officer stopped to help a stranded rider standing beside a stalled motorcycle in the mountains. It was extremely cold, and the rider was heavily dressed in a helmet, balaclava and snowmobile suit. In a muffled voice, the rider told the Mountie that the carburetor was frozen. A motorcyclist himself, the Mountie remembered an old trick for just such an occasion. "Try peeing on it," the Mountie said, "That should thaw it." "Can't," replied the rider. So the helpful Mountie took out his own equipment and liberally hosed down the carburetor, and the bike soon fired up. A few days later, the local department received a thank you note from a father, grateful for the roadside assistance his young daughter had received from the RCMP

In my senior year I reluctantly took a required psychology course. The first day, the professor commented on each student's major, trying to provoke a response. It was working - some students were becoming defensive. When it was my turn, even though it was physics, I told him I was a music major. "So," asked my professor, "what does your father think of you wasting your education to study music." "He's just thankful," I shot back, "that I didn't go into psychology."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Joscilin Smith, 28, and Aaron Roland, 29, Mesa, AZ Couple Jailed After Scorching 4-Year-Old With Boiling Water, Refusing Medical Care Joscilin Smith, 28, and Aaron Roland, 29, have been jailed after they allegedly scorched their son with a pot of boiling water - then refused to get the boy medical treatment for his severe burns. According to police, Smith and Roland were involved in a heated argument late last month when Smith picked up a pot of boiling water and tried to burn Roland with it. Smith succeeded in burning Roland, however a large amount of the boiling water landed on the couple's 4-year-old son - leaving him with severe burns to his arms, legs and back. The boy also suffered 2nd-degree burns to 8% of his body, according to court documents. Investigators say Roland sought medical treatment for himself the same day, but neither parent wanted to take the child to a hospital, fearing they would be charged with child abuse and possibly lose custody of their seven children. The child's injuries reportedly came to light Friday when an officer dropped by the residence to conduct a welfare check on the boy. Initially, Smith and Roland told the officer that the boy was away visiting relatives. When the officer checked the residence anyway, the boy was found hidden inside a closet. The boy was transported to a local hospital where he was treated for burns that hadn't received medical care for 14 days. Smith was booked into jail and charged with aggravated assault and three counts of child abuse. Roland was booked into jail and charged with one count of child abuse.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Cleaning Cloth And Water For Eyeglasses I called up my optical place where I bought my glasses. They have free cleaning cloths just for my glasses which are progressive lenses. I wash them often in warm water, squeeze it out, and lay it to dry. I do not put in the washer or dryer at all. This works for me and perhaps it will for you all as well. By Sarah Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com
While working in a clothing store, I noticed that people had no shame about returning items that obviously had been worn. One rainy morning I walked in and found a discolored blazer hanging on the rack with other returns. "People return the most filthy, nasty things," I commented to my supervisor who was standing nearby. Eyebrow raised, she said, "That's my jacket."

Her big church wedding was fast approaching, and my friend was delighted to hear that her mom, emerging from a nasty divorce, had finally found the perfect mother-of-the-bride dress. Two days later, she was shocked to learn that her new young stepmother had purchased the same dress. My friend asked her stepmother to buy another dress since her mom had already altered her purchase. Her new stepmother refused. After two more weeks of frustrating shopping, the bride's mom found a dress that was not as nice as the first, but would serve. When asked by a friend what she would do with her original dress, she grinned and replied, "I'm wearing it to the rehearsal dinner!"
