Crappy Gift With Purchase
Friday, 22 December 2006

I saw this posted on the SNEWS forum. Wasn't sure if you saw it or not.**********************************A retailer friend of ours called to tell us that he just had a somewhat funny, bizzare and altogether disgusting experience. Seems a Confluence Watersports contract driver, delivering a load of boats after hours to this retailer, decided he needed to leave an extra Christmas bonus…a stack of boats to one side of the parking lot, along with a pile of personal crap together with requisite toilet paper scraps. Our intrepid retail owner, being a team guy and not willing to shun crappy duty by passing it off to an employee, donned latex gloves and a gathered a load of clean up materials to have the little gift packaged away and flushed before the store opened. The SNEWS team nearly split a gut laughing upon hearing this tale. Though certainly unique and memorable, we are quite sure that this is not a great way to win the hearts and minds of retailers around the country and trust this particular contract driver will be hearing from his bosses after they hear, no doubt, from a very upset Confluence management team.Posted the by SNEWS Editors**********************************Who does that? This officially ends my bodily functions series of posts.

Worst Christmas song ever!
Tuesday, 19 December 2006

 My wife just gave me the good news so I had to go out and confirm it on, "The Internets". A recent poll announcing the winner of the worst Christmas song ever. I was delighted to read that the Paul McCartney song, "Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas Time" was the winner for the second straight year. I recently had a conversation with a friend from work where he was discussing how Paul McCartney was the best song writer ever. I said that could be the case except that he wrote, "Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas Time". I argued that with that song on his resume, he slips way down to probably number 2. Right behind James Horner who wrote, "My Heart will Go On" sung by Celine Dion from the Titanic Soundtrack. No that is the best song ever! (Listen for the Sarcasm)  :)

Paddle Joke
Monday, 18 December 2006

This was just passed along to me. Sorry it is so tasteless. :)Saturday  morning he got up early, put on his long johns, dressed quietly, made his lunch, grabbed his gear, slipped quietly into the garage to load the Kayak on the truck, and proceeded to back  out into a torrential downpour. There was snow mixed with the  rain, and the wind was blowing 50 mph. He pulled back into the  garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the  weather would be bad throughout the day. He went back  into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed. Where he cuddled up to his wife's back, now with a different anticipation,  and whispered, "The weather out there is terrible." She sleepily replied, "Can you believe my stupid husband is out Kayaking in that shit?"
