This new boss is determined to rid the company of all slackers. On a tour of the facilities, the CEO notices a guy leaning on a wall. The room is full of workers and he thinks this is his chance to show everyone he means business! The CEO walks up the guy and asks, "And how much money do you make a week?" Unflinching, the young fellow looks at him and replies, "I make $300.00 a week. Why?" The CEO then hands the guy $300 in cash and screams, "Here's a week's pay; now GET OUT and don't come back!" Feeling pretty good about his first firing, the CEO looks around the room and asks, "Does anyone want to tell me what that slacker did here?" Just then the foreman comes into the room with his wallet in his hand. He looks around and says, "Hey! Did the pizza delivery guy leave without his tip ?" ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Vi for this story. George, age 92, and Edith, age 89, had been seeing each other for 2 years when they decided that life was too short and they might as well be together for the rest of their lives. Excited about their decision to become newlyweds, they went for a stroll to discuss the wedding and what plans need to be made. Along their way, they found themselves in front of a drugstore. George said to his bride-to-be, "Let's go in. I have an idea." They walked to the rear of the store and addressed the man behind the counter: "Are you the owner?" asked George. The pharmacist answered, "Yes sir, I am. How can I help you?" George: "Do you sell heart medications?" Pharmacist: "Of course we do." George: "How about support hose for circulation?" Pharmacist: "Definitely." George: "What about medications for rheumatism, osteoporosis & arthritis?" Pharmacist: "All kinds." George: "How about waterproof furniture pads and Depends?" Pharmacist: "Yes sir." George: "Hearing aids, denture supplies & reading glasses?" Pharmacist: "Yes." George: "What about eye drops, sleeping pills, Geritol, Preparation-H and ExLax?" Pharmacist: "Absolutely." George: "You sell wheelchairs, walkers, and canes?" Pharmacist: "All kinds and sizes. Why all these questions?" George smiled, glanced shyly at Edith and replied to the pharmacist, "We've decided to get married and we'd like to use your store as our Bridal Registry." -------- Good idea to avoid the usual 27 toasters and 11 toaster ovens from the Flea Market.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD AND a Darwin Award has been earned by Jonathan Chow, 17, Singapore Singapore teen jumps to his death in reported snapchat stunt by hopping over a glass barrier and through a decoration down 4 floors. He thought he was jumping onto a concrete ledge, his friend says. One teen reportedly leapt to his death in Singapore after attempting a Snapchat stunt that went tragically wrong. Jonathan Chow, 17, jumped over a barrier and fell four floors at Singapore’s Orchard Central mall Friday, The Straits Times reported. Footage leaked from the mall’s closed-circuit television, which made its rounds on the internet Tuesday, appears to show Chow and a girl standing next to a railing in the mall. Chow jumps over the railing while the girl raises her arm, as if she’s recording the jump with a phone. Then she appears to panic and peers over the railing. Orchard Central confirmed the authenticity of the 15-second video to The Straits Times.
A girl who identified herself only as Ruth to local media said she was there when Chow jumped. Ruth said she and Chow were shopping at the mall and “when we went to the bridge, he came up with the idea of doing the stunt,” she told Today Online, a Singapore news website, during Chow’s wake. Ruth explained that there was a ledge past the railing that appeared to be concrete. They were both supposed to leap onto the ledge and record each other. “We both thought the ledge was concrete, but when he jumped, he fell straight through,” Ruth told Today Online. The ledge was made of a decorative plasterboard casing and was not meant to bear weight, The Straits Times reported. According to Ruth, Chow’s last words were, “Help me take a Snapchat video and I’ll jump.” Far East Organization, the retail business that owns Orchard Central, said in a statement that the glass railing along the bridge is 1.2 meters (3.9 feet), “acts as a safety barrier” for the public and “prohibits access to the plasterboard box-up,” according to Today Online. Chow’s father, however, called for more safety measures at Orchard Central. “The [decorative structure] was wide enough to look like a passageway, and there was no warning sign to tell people that it should not be walked on,” Matthew Chow told The Straits Times. “We don’t want other families to go through what we went through.”
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Randal Re: Driver Update PopUp Dear Webby Hope this finds you in good spirits and your eyes in good condition. My questions for you this morning is about free drivers updates? Every morning i get hit with a screen saying my drivers need to be updated and when i went thru all of the screens i got to a credit card screen well i just kindly back my way out of there. My question is there a free driver update service? any knowledge on this subject would be greatly appreciated... Have a great week... Randy Dear Randy Your computer is infected. You don't need drivers, you need Malwarebytes and clean that infection out of your machine. Drivers are totally free. You simply go to the company site of whatever driver you need, for example the printer manufacturer, click on Drivers, Download. They are all totally free. Many devices do that automatically, when you connect them the first time. What you get bugged with is some crooks, who want your credit card data. Get rid of them! Have FUN! DearWebby
Here is a classic that came back via Jolly: It was Palm Sunday, and the mother's 3 year old son had to stay home from church because of strep throat. When the rest of the family returned home carrying palm branches, the little boy asked what they were for. His mother explained, "People held them over Jesus' head as he walked by." "Wouldn't you know it," the boy fumed. "The one Sunday I don't go, and Jesus shows up!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Toilet Paper Tube Seedling Pots A great way to recycle toilet paper tubes is to use them as containers to start vegetable and flower seeds for garden plants. This is a guide about toilet paper tube seedling pots. Supplies: toilet paper tubes scissors Steps: Cut the TP tube in half. Then make 4 cuts that are approx. 1/2 in., creating 4 flaps of equal size. Fold one flap inward, then working clockwise, fold the other flaps down. Tuck the corner of the last flap under the corner of the first flap. (Like when you are closing a cardboard box.) Turn them over and gently press them down on a flat surface so make the bottoms flat, so that they will stay upright. Turn them over, fill with soil, and plant your seeds. Once the seeds have sprouted and are ready to go into the ground, just plant them with the pot. The cardboard will disintegrate in the soil.

____________________________________________________ A chemistry teacher wanted to teach his 5th grade class a lesson about the evils of liquor, so he produced an experiment that involved a glass of water, a glass of whiskey and two worms. "Now, class. Observe the worms closely," said the teacher putting a worm first into the water. The worm in the water writhed about, happy as a worm in water could be. The second worm, he put into the whiskey. It writhed painfully, and quickly sank to the bottom, dead as a door nail. "Now, what lesson can we derive from this experiment?" the teacher asked. , who naturally sat at the back, raised a hand and wisely, responded, "Drink whiskey and you won't get worms." ___________________________________________________

There was this guy in a mental hospital. All day long he had his ear to the wall, listening. The Dr. Cohen would watch this guy do this day after day. The doctor finally decided to see what the guy was listening to, so he put his ear up to the wall and listened. He heard nothing. He turned to the mental patient and said, "I don't hear anything." The mental patient said, "Yeah doc, I know. It's been like that for months."
