Max goes shopping

Hello and welcome back to the wonderful world of the Dogpound.  Who knew shopping would become such a contact sport?  With the growing enthusiasm over Black Friday, folks are going to have to add more than elbow and shin guards to go shopping this year.  In one store a lady was so determined to get her share of the goodies that she sprayed her competitors with pepper spray [add gas masks]. At another store someone was shot in the parking lot by a person trying to take the easy way out by stealing another person’s hard earned bounty[add bullet proof vests].  Now, you could use the Internet; probably safe from pepper spray and guns but there is that nasty issue with identity theft.  However, for me, I have no fear of that…no one in their right mind would want my identity – besides, Max would bite them.  Wouldn’t you Max?  Max?  Oh well, I am sure he would once he wakes up.

  • Do you know anyone that calls a radio station to request a song to be played or any station that does that anymore?
  • It is an interesting fact of human nature that nothing gets you out of bed faster than the realization that you have overslept and are late.
  • I send out a request to the food companies to stop this serving size information on packaging, especially when they offer more than one serving.  They know that once I open it I am going to eat it all anyway. So just give me one-line that tells me the total damages.
  • Interesting fact: the Federal rate of termination for poor performance is less than 1/5th of the private sector and the annual retention rate for all federal employees is 99.4%. Government defenders say the numbers reflect just the “excellence” of their initial recruitment policies. And if you believe that then there is no hope for you at all.
  • Christmas is the time when kids tell Santa what they want and the adults pay for it. Deficits are when adults tell government what they want and their kids pay for it.

A shoplifter was caught red-handed trying to steal a watch from an exclusive jewelry store. “Listen,” said the shoplifter, “I know you don’t want any trouble either. What do you say I just buy the watch, and we forget about this?”  The manager agreed and wrote up the sales slip. The crook looked at the slip and said, “This is a little more than I intended to spend. Can you show me something less expensive?”

That is a wrap for me.  As always be good, play safe and keep those elbows out and head down when you are shopping.  

JR and Max
