The marketer called and was in the middle of giving her spiel about saving money on long-distance. Tommy interrupted her, "Ma'am, I don't need your long distance service because I don't have a telephone." Must have caught her off guard because she said, "Oh, I'm sorry to have bothered you." ------- I have used that too. Telemarketers are usually too stupid to catch on. My main retort, though, is that I can't hear them and that they should email me. MailWasher takes care of them quite nicely, IF, that is IF, they are schmart enough to use email. ______________________________________________________ "Information. Can I help you?"

It's Theater Guild." "I told you, sir. I have no listing for a Theodore Guild." "Not *Theodore*! *Theater*! The word is *theater*. T-H-E-A-T-E-R!"

"What about a new vacation home in the country?" he suggests. She again rejects his offer with a "No thanks." "Well what would you like for your anniversary?" John asks. "John, I'd like a divorce," answers Mary.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Mario Hudson, in jail in NY Man posing as crew member busted at JFK Airport with $85K worth of cocaine in suitcase The traveler may have been inspired by Leonardo DiCaprio in ‘Catch Me if You Can’, but fortunately U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport have seen this movie before. CBP officers intercepted passenger Mario Hudson, a citizen of Jamaica, on March 27, as he was arriving from Kingston, Jamaica. Hudson was dressed in what appeared to be a pilot’s uniform and claimed he was a “dead-heading crew member.” During the baggage inspection, CBP officers discovered that Hudson had what appeared to be two fraudulent Delta Airlines ID badges. During the examination of Hudson’s luggage, CBP officers noticed that the sides and bottom appeared to be unusually thick and heavy. Hudson was escorted to a private search room where his suitcase was probed revealing a white powder that tested positive for cocaine. Hudson was arrested for the import of a controlled substance and was turned over to Homeland Security Investigations. The total weight of cocaine seized was approximately five pounds with an estimated street value of $85,000. Hudson faces federal narcotics smuggling charges and will be prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the U.S. Eastern District Court of New York. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Brent Re: XSS-Protection error in Chrome Dear Webby What is this XSS-Protection error in Chrome, that pops up when I try to post on a forum or sometimes when I try to do some shopping? It is totally unpredictable, and after filling out a big shopping cart, it dumps the whole thing, irretrievably! How do I get rid of that or fix it? Brent Dear Brent It is a bug in Chrome version 57. Version 58 beta apparently still has the bug too. XSS auditor has been around for a decade, and until version 57, Chrome handled it correctly, then they scrwd it up, but don't know how. There is no practical method yet to get around the bug. Theoretically, you could dump all your tabs, close Chrome, and start it with a command line directive to not use XSS auditor, but that is quite useless, even if it did work, since it too dumps your shoping cart. About all you can do is use FireFox for those sites, where Chrome messes up. FireFox handles XSS auditor correctly. Have FUN! DearWebby
A businessman had a meeting with his new son-in-law. "I love my daughter, and now I welcome you into the family," said the man. "To show you how much we care for you, I'm making you a 50-50 partner in my business. All you have to do is go to the factory every day and learn the operations." The son-in-law interrupted. "I hate factories. I can't stand the noise." "I see," replied the father-in-law. "Well then you'll work in the office and take charge of some of the operations." "I hate office work," said the son-on-law. "I can't stand being stuck behind a desk all day." "Wait a minute," said the father-in-law. "I just make you half-owner of a moneymaking organization, but you don't like factories and won't work in a office. What am I going to do with you?" "Easy," said the young man. "I'll rent you my 50% and retire on the proceeds."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com 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 My children's school work got wet and the ink transferred to my light beige leather car seats. I could read the school work on my seats. I went to this site quickly before I left for work. I grabbed a few items suggested: alcohol, hairspray, soap and worked on the spots at red lights. Nothing worked. I went into work and someone told me about Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. It's by the cleaning products in the store. It worked! No fading. I even tried it on a old rust spot on my sink I could never get out, and it worked. I had to submit this today. By Ami from Shorewood, IL

Once they had moved the stove and refrigerator out of the way, it was not long before the job was done. As they were getting ready to leave, I asked them to put the heavy appliances back in place. The two men said that would cost an additional $45 service fee, stating it was not in their contract. I really had no choice but to pay them. As soon as they left, however, the doorbell rang. It was the two men. They asked me to move my car, which was blocking their van. I told them my fee: $45. ___________________________________________________

A Briton, a Frenchman and a Russian are viewing a painting of Adam and Eve frolicking in the Garden of Eden. "Look at their reserve, their calm," muses the Brit. "They must be British." "Nonsense," the Frenchman disagrees. "They're naked, and so beautiful. Clearly, they are French." "No clothes, no shelter," the Russian points out, "they have only an apple to eat, and they're being told this is paradise. They are Russian."
