A Senior's Revenge

yukban
This is a letter that was sent to a bank by an 86 year old woman:

Dear Sir:

I am writing to thank you for bouncing my check with which I endeavoured to pay my plumber last month.

By my calculations, three nanoseconds must have elapsed between his presenting the check and the arrival in my account of the funds needed to honour it.

I refer, of course, to the automatic monthly deposit of my entire pension, an arrangement which, I admit, has been in place for only eight years.

You are to be commended for seizing that brief window of opportunity, and also for debiting my account $30 by way of penalty for the inconvenience caused to your bank.

My thankfulness springs from the manner in which this incident has caused me to rethink my errant financial ways. I noticed that whereas I personally answer your telephone calls and letters, when I try to contact you, I am confronted by the impersonal, overcharging, pre-recorded, faceless entity which your bank has become.

From now on, I, like you, choose only to deal with a flesh-and-blood person.

My mortgage and loan repayments will therefore and hereafter no longer be automatic, but will arrive at your bank, by check, addressed personally and confidentially to an employee at your bank whom you must nominate.

Be aware that it is an OFFENSE under the Postal Act for any other person to open such an envelope.

Please find attached an Application Contact which I require your chosen employee to complete.

I am sorry it runs to eight pages, but in order that I know as much about him or her as your bank knows about me, there is no alternative.

Please note that all copies of his or her medical history must be countersigned by a Notary Public, and the mandatory details of his/her financial situation (income, debts, assets and liabilities) must be accompanied by documented proof.

In due course, at MY convenience, I will issue your employee with a PIN number which he/she must quote in dealings with me.

I regret that it cannot be shorter than 28 digits but, again, I have modelled it on the number of button presses required of me to access my account balance on your phone bank service.

As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Let me level the playing field even further.

When you call me, press buttons as follows:

IMMEDIATELY AFTER DIALING, PRESS THE STAR (*) BUTTON FOR ENGLISH

#1. To make an appointment to see me

#2. To query a missing payment.

#3. To transfer the call to my living room in case I am there.

#4 To transfer the call to my bedroom in case I am sleeping.

#5. To transfer the call to my toilet in case I am attending to nature.

#6. To transfer the call to my mobile phone if I am not at home.

#7. To leave a message on my computer, a password to access my computer is required.

Password will be communicated to you at a later date to that Authorized Contact mentioned earlier.

#8. To return to the main menu and to listen to options 1 through 8.

#9. To make a general complaint or inquiry.

The contact will then be put on hold, pending the attention of my automated answering service.

#10. This is a second reminder to press * for English.

While this may, on occasion, involve a lengthy wait, uplifting music will play for the duration of the call.

Regrettably, but again following your example, I must also levy an establishment fee to cover the setting up of this new arrangement.

May I wish you a happy, if ever so slightly less prosperous New Year?

Your Humble Client

And remember: Don't make us old people mad. We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to piss us off.

The Most Expensive Car Crash Ever?



Eight Ferraris in supercar pile-up.

It could be the most expensive car crash ever.

This was the scene after 14 luxury cars - including eight Ferraris - were involved in a pricey pile-up in western Japan.

A Lamborghini and two Mercedes were also involved in the smash.

The damage caused to many of the vehicles was thought to be so severe that they will have to be scrapped.

Full story here.

Watch That Diet

goofy
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!"

AND . . .

For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than North Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than North Americans.

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than North Americans.

4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than North Americans.

5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than North Americans.

CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Be Careful Out There If You're Ice Fishing

ghost_dam_jan2_11

Here is a photo from Jan, 12 showing how dangerous ice can be to drive on, even with a small car. This photo does not show how close that car is to shore.

The photo does show it on a pressure ridge very dangerous. As a general rule pressure ridges should be avoided. Those ridges exist as a stress relief for the body of water. The ice does stress relief a lot on full moon and when the sun sets and rises.

A Canadian Smile

sask
A Saskatchewan farmer and his wife, on their way back home in January, were at an airport in Arizona awaiting their flight. They were dressed in heavy boots, parka, scarf, mittens, etc, all ready for the Canadian winter.

An older American couple standing nearby is intrigued by their  manner of dress. The wife says to her husband: "Look at that couple. I wonder where they're from."

He replies: "How would I know?"

She counters: "You could go and ask them."

He says: "I don't really care. You want to know, you go and ask  them."

She decides to do just that and walks over to the couple and  asks, "Excuse me. Looking at the way you are dressed, I wondered where you're from."

The Canadian farmer replies: "Saskatoon Saskatchewan".

The woman returns to her husband who asks: "So, where are they  from?"

She replies: "I don't  know. They don't speak English."

101 Ways To Save Money In The New Year

101money
Some bills are fixed — the monthly rent or mortgage payments for instance. Others fluctuate with the season — think the electric bill in winter and the water bill in summer.

For everything else you spend money on, you don't need your mother to tell you it pays to shop around. Common sense tells you to do some homework before opening your wallet. And, with the help of the Internet, you can easily compare prices and read helpful user comments and reviews.

To help you make ends meet in the new year, we offer these money-saving tips.

Legal Logic

Legal Logic
The Jury In a criminal justice system based on 12 individuals not smart enough to get out of jury duty, here is a jury of which to be proud.:

A defendant was on trial for murder. There was strong evidence indicating guilt, but there was no corpse. In the defense's closing statement the lawyer, knowing that his client would probably be convicted, resorted to a trick.

"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I have a surprise for you all," the lawyer said as he looked at his watch. "Within one minute, the person presumed dead in this case will walk into this courtroom." He looked toward the courtroom door.

The jurors, somewhat stunned, all looked on eagerly. A minute passed. Nothing happened. Finally the lawyer said, "Actually, I made up the previous statement. But you all looked on with anticipation. I, therefore, put it to you that you have a reasonable doubt in this case as to whether anyone was killed, and I insist that you return a verdict of not guilty."

The jury, clearly confused, retired to deliberate. A few minutes later, the jury returned and pronounced a verdict of guilty.

"But how?" inquired the lawyer. "You must have had some doubt; I saw all of you stare at the door."

The jury foreman replied, "Yes, we did look, but your client didn't."

Alien Balls Falling On U.S.

If you need a laugh today folks, and frankly who doesn't?, Check out this thrilling report from the Weekly World News:

"Large metallic balls dropping across the U.S. (and Africa). NASA and the U.N. confirmed the alien balls are from Planet Zeeba.

The hollow balls with a circumference of between 4 an 10 feet have been found all across the U.S. in the last forty-eight hours, according to authorities with NASA and the United Nations Panel on Extraterrestrials.

With a diameter of 3 to 6 feet, the balls have a rough surface and appear to consist of “two halves welded together”."

Thank you all so very kindly for all you do in promoting this show throughout each year through your papers, websites, word of mouth and radio. May the coming year bring you good health and happiness.
 
I welcome the addition of two regulars to the Tuesday Moosehead/barsnbands open stage.
Jim Dyck and Randy Forsberg will now be a fixture on Tuesday nights joining me and a featured guest or guests each week. Jim will open the year on our first show on January 3rd and then he is away until mid April. We will fill his slot with co-host guitarists until he returns.
 
January 3

Paul Finn (Guitar and vocals) - Paul has seen most of our Canadian landscape as a touring blues musician throughout his musical career travelling with some great blues artists. Respected as a very polished bass player and guitarist. Paul fronts his own band as guitarist and vocalist, lighting fires with his aggressive blues style with Paul Finn and friends. Paul also spent many years hosting the blues jam in Calgary at The King Eddie,where he met, and got a chance to play with a lot of the great incoming blues artists. Paul currently gets hired as a sideman bassist or guitarist with local blues bands.

A hooded robber burst into a Texas bank and forced the tellers to load a sack full of cash.

On his way out the door, a brave Texas customer grabbed the hood and pulled it off revealing the robber's face. The robber shot the customer without a moments hesitation.

He then looked around the bank and noticed one of the tellers looking straight at him.

The robber instantly shot him also. Everyone else, by now very scared, looked intently down at the floor in silence.

The robber yelled, 'Well, did anyone else see my face?'

There are a few moments of utter silence in which everyone was plainly afraid to speak.

Then, one old cowboy tentatively raised his hand, and while keeping his head down said, 'My wife got a pretty good look at you.'

The second kid says, 'I'm in here to get my tonsils out and I'm a little nervous.'

The first kid says, 'You've got nothing to worry about. I had that done when I was four. They put you to sleep, and when you wake up they give you lots of Jell-O and ice cream. It's a breeze.'

The second kid then asks, 'What are you in here for?'

The first kid says, 'A circumcision.'

And the second kid says, 'Whoa, good luck with that one, buddy! I had that done when I was born. Couldn't walk for a year.'

Mysterious Metal Ball Falls From Sky In Namibia

metal
A large metal ball that fell from space into the Namibian grasslands last month is not alien, officials say, but that's about all they know for certain about the object.

According to a report on The Namibian website, the 13-pound metal sphere with two bumps on its poles was found by a farmer near Onamatunga in the Omunsati region between November 15 and November 20. Explosions were heard in the area before the discovery, but no evidence of an explosion was seen around the area where the object was found.

Full story here.
