A single agent was rebooking a long line of inconvenienced travelers. Suddenly an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped his ticket down on the counter and said, "I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS." The agent replied, "I'm sorry sir. I'll be happy to try to help you, but I've got to help these folks first, and I'm sure we'll be able to work something out." The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that the passengers behind him could hear, "Do you have any idea who I am?" Without hesitating, the gate agent smiled and grabbed her public address microphone. "May I have your attention please?" she began, her voice bellowing throughout the terminal. "We have a passenger here at the gate WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him find his identity, please come to the United counter at gate 4." With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the United agent, gritted his teeth and swore, "F*** you!" Without flinching, she smiled and said, "I'm sorry, sir, but you'll have to stand in line for that, too." ______________________________________________________ Thabnks to dad for this picture: This none bloomed today. ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Nasar Hanif, 29, Oldham, England Groom high on drugs wrecks £130k supercar during high-speed police chase on his stag party Nasar Hanif's pre-wedding celebration descended into mayhem after he got involved in a city centre brawl that sent him fleeing from police. Hanif had previous convictions for affray, obstructing police, possessing heroin and cocaine with intent, and driving offences, typical for a high profile dope dealer. High on a cocktail of drugs smashed up a £130,000 Audi after he was Tasered by police during a high-speed chase on his stag do. Nasar Hanif's pre-wedding celebration descended into mayhem after he got involved in a city centre brawl that sent him fleeing from police in a Audi R8 Spyder. 130 000 Pounds is $162 000, but the Audi R8 Spyder is too hot for USA. High on cocaine and cannabis, Hanif crashed the vehicle into a lamp post and wrote it off after police were forced to Taser him to stop his rampage. He ran from the vehicle and was found moments later cowering under a car by a sniffer dog. Hanif, 29, collapsed in tears and had to be helped out of the dock as he was jailed for dangerous driving and assault causing actual bodily harm at Manchester Crown Court. Bridegroom Hanif, of Oldham, went out with pals to the Curry Mile to celebrate his ‘last night of freedom’. His group then headed to the city centre to show off cars they had rented for the wedding, which was set for the next day, reports the Manchester Evening News . The convoy included the Audi R8 Hanif was driving, a Lamborghini Gallardo, a Mercedes c63 convertible, and a Mercedes e250 convertible driven by his 25-year-old friend Vikaar Ali, prosecutor Justin Hayhoe revealed. In the early hours of October 10, outside The Printworks, the group got into argument with two men in town for a Rugby World Cup game. After the men pursued the convoy along the street, Hanif and his friends got out of vehicles. One of the rugby fans was chased off, the other was given a kicking by Hanif and seven of his friends. 7 against 1. The group fled after dragging the unconscious man they had assaulted out of the road. But police were on their tail, and caught up with them at Oldham Road. There, Vikaar Ali, who was driving the Mercedes E250, flashed to his friends that they were being pursued, before turning off. Police followed the Lamborghini and the R8 as they travelled at low speed towards Failsworth . When the cars stopped at lights, the police tried to block them in. Both vehicles reversed, with Hanif hitting the car behind him, before speeding off. The Lamborghini got away, but an officer caught up with Hanif at the car park of Tesco, ramming the R8 and forcing it into a spin. Hanif was still determined to get away, so the officer got out of his car, drew his Taser, and ordered him to stop. He still carried on, and ended up being Tasered at the wheel before losing control and smashing the car into a lamp post. Despite this, he got out of the wreckage, and ran off before being found hiding under a car by a police dog. Sentencing Hanif to 18 months in jail, Judge Richard Mansell QC said ‘sickening’ violence had been followed by ‘appalling’ driving. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Abe Re: Currency Converter Dear Webby, I have used the XE currency converter that you have in the side menu hundreds of times, but it stopped working.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Tip: Removing Ball Point Pen From Leather Try hairspray! I had a blue pen and the ink went on my fingers. I went to push the stool in and it went on the stool. I tried Jif, bleach and alcohol, they all didn't work. When it came to hairspray, it came straight off with just one wipe down. So if you have any leather that has been marked with ink, don't stop and think that it's a scar for life. Let me tell you that hairspray was the best product I ever used! By Olivia from Bexley, NSW

>From Linda It was 6 p.m., and I was about to leave the coin laundry where I was employed. My boss called me over and asked if I would mind dropping off someone's laundry on my way home. "It's for my cousin," she apologized, "who's eight months pregnant and can't get out much anymore." I cheerfully agreed and, driving to the address, knocked at the door. A little girl, the sister-to-be, answered. "Hi, there," I said with a big smile. "Is your mommy home?" Holding up the white bundle of clothes, I explained, "I have a delivery for her." The child's mouth dropped, and her eyes went wide. "Mom!", she shrieked, "come quick! It's the stork!"

The man thought that it was very unusual to sell a Porsche for $100, and he thought it might be a joke or a typo. However, he was intrigued and soon decided it was worth a shot. He went to the lady's house and sure enough, she had an almost brand new Porsche. "Wow!" the man said. "Can I take it for a test drive?" Unlike what he expected, the man found that the car ran perfectly and took it back to the lady's house. "Why are you selling me this great Porsche for only $100?" "My husband just ran off with his secretary, and he told me I could have the house and the furniture as long as I sold his Porsche and sent him the money." He paid her and asked her to come along to the MV to change the papers. On the way back he invited her to the Outback Steak House. ____________________________________________________
