After shopping for most of the day, a couple returns to find their car has been stolen. They go to the police station to make a full report. Then, a detective drives them back to the parking lot to see if any evidence can be found at the scene of the crime. To their amazement, the car has been returned. There is an envelope on the windshield with a note of apology and two tickets to a music concert. The note reads, 'I apologize for taking your car, but my wife was having a baby and I had to hot-wire your ignition to rush her to the hospital. Please forgive the inconvenience. Here are two tickets for tonight's concert of Garth Brooks, the country-and-western music star.' Their faith in humanity restored, the couple attend the concert and return home late. They find their house has been robbed. Valuable goods have been taken from throughout the house, from basement to attic. And, there is a note on the door reading, 'Well, you still have your car.

On the Light Side
One Sunday, a young boy arrived to his Sunday school class late. His teacher knew that the boy was usually very prompt and asked him if anything was wrong. The boy replied no, that he was going to go fishing, but that his dad told him that he needed to go to church instead. The teacher was very impressed and asked the boy if his father had explained to him why it was more important to go to church rather than to go fishing. To which the boy replied, "Yes, ma'am, he did. My dad said that he didn't have enough bait for both of us."

Idiot Sightings
IDIOT SIGHTING - Two really rich ladies pull up and parked beside my mom and me. They were in a convertible with the top down. I heard one of the ladies say, “We better lock our doors so no one steals anything out of the car.” Her partner agreed. They get out lock the doors and go inside the store. My mom and I were laughing so hard I could hardly catch my breath. They locked the car doors alright with the top still down on the convertible. LOL Stay alert! They walk among us!

Where Did This Come From?
SLIPSHOD: If something (or someone) is slipshod, it means its poor quality or sloppy. The term has to do with 15th century hardwood floors and shoes that were made w/o heels or any fasteners to scratch these floors. Obviously, they were more comfy than the normal shoes; and, soon people began to wear them outside the house, and (Oh Lord!) even to church!! Such people were considered sloppy in their appearance when they wore slippers on their feet (aka slipshod).
