"We may run, walk, stumble, drive, or fly, but let us never lost sight of the reason for the journey, or miss a chance to see a rainbow on the way." --
Gloria Gaither


Customer: Hi. How much is your paint?
Clerk: Well, sir, that all depends on quite a lot of things.

Customer: Can you give me a guess? Is there an average price?
Clerk: Our lowest price is $12 a gallon, and we have 60 different prices up to $200 a gallon.

Customer: What's the difference in the paint?
Clerk: Oh, there isn't any difference; it's all the same paint.

Customer: Well, then I'd like some of that $12 paint.
Clerk: When do you intend to use the paint?

Customer: I want to paint tomorrow. It's my day off.
Clerk: Sir, the paint for tomorrow is the $200 paint.

Customer: When would I have to paint to get the $12 paint?
Clerk: You would have to start very late at night in about 3 weeks. But you will have to agree to start painting before Friday of that week and continue painting until at least Sunday.

Customer: You've got to be *&%^#@* kidding!
Clerk: I'll check and see if we have any paint available.

Customer: You have shelves FULL of paint! I can see it!
Clerk: But it doesn't mean that we have paint available. We sell only a certain number of gallons on any given weekend. Oh, and by the way, the price per gallon just went to $16. We don't have any more $12 paint.

Customer: The price went up as we were talking?
Clerk: Yes, sir. We change the prices and rules hundreds of times a day, and since you haven't actually walked out of the store with your paint yet, we just decided to change. I suggest you purchase your paint as soon as possible. How many gallons do you want?

Customer: Well, maybe five gallons. Make that six, so I'll have enough.
Clerk: Oh no, sir, you can't do that. If you buy paint and don't use it, there are penalties and possible confiscation of the paint you already have.

Customer: WHAT?
Clerk: We can sell enough paint to do your kitchen, bathroom, hall and north bedroom, but if you stop painting before you do the bedroom, you will lose your remaining gallons of paint.

Customer: What does it matter whether I use all the paint? I already paid you for it!
Clerk: We make plans based upon the idea that all our paint is used, every drop. If you don't, it causes us all sorts of problems.

Customer: This is crazy!! I suppose something terrible happens if I don't keep painting until after Saturday night!
Clerk: Oh yes! Every gallon you bought automatically becomes the $200 paint.

Customer: But what are all these, "Paint on sale from $10 a liter" signs?
Clerk: Well that's for our budget paint. It only comes in half-gallons. One $5 half-gallon will do half a room. The second half-gallon to complete the room is $20. None of the cans have labels, some are empty and there are no refunds, even on the empty cans.

Customer: To hell with this! I'll buy what I need somewhere else!
Clerk: I don't think so, sir. You may be able to buy paint for your bathroom and bedrooms, and your kitchen and dining room from someone else, but you won't be able to paint your connecting hall and stairway from anyone but us. And I should point out, sir, that if you paint in only one direction, it will be $300 a gallon.

Customer: I thought your most expensive paint was $200!
Clerk: That's if you paint around the room to the point at which you started. A hallway is different.

Customer: And if I buy $200 paint for the hall, but only paint in one direction, you'll confiscate the remaining paint.
Clerk: No, we'll charge you an extra use fee plus the difference on your next gallon of paint. But I believe you're getting it now, sir.

Customer: You're insane!
Clerk: Thanks for painting with United.

Hey everybody IT'S FRIDAY!!  penguin

This particular Friday is particularly awesome because I am off of work. woot

There's is however not much in particular for me to do today, because it is particularly cold outside, and we're supposed to be having some frozen particulate falling. shiver

If you're not doing anything in particular, come on over and we can be particularly bored together. tired

Have a happy day everyone.

What simply wonderful stupendous day! Although cold shiver

I'm finally home again. Had the best nights sleep in ages.

I broke out of I mean i escaped I mean I was discharged from a nursing rehab jail facility yesterday.

So once again I'm free to roam the lands of my apartment. No more bells or people waking me up in the middle of the night to ask if I need pain medicine. No more intimate questions about my bathroom activities. And I can finally be alone again. I don't know which was worse. The constant pain or sharing a room with a very nice woman with a large nice chatty family.

Thanks to all those who sent well wishes/vibes/prayers my way. You can tell they did the job cause I'm still here. Not quite out of the woods yet but getting there. woot

I'm glad to be back and I would like to wish belated Merry Christmas and Happy New year to all! santadance newyear HNY winter presents12 happydance12

Fantastic Friday ya'll puppy

I am so confused about which day it really is. Tis ok, I'll figure it out eventually.

Tis cold in Bama. I'll be pretending it's Monday and boiling some books today. Thought I had them all taken care of yesterday til hubby came walking in with all his from their recent trip.

Sharon, glad you are home and hope you are at your best soonest!

I really hate health clubs in January. Parking is full, classes are jammed with people who have no sense of personal space and just no club etiquette whatsoever.

Sharon, what a great surprise to see you here! You were in my thoughts everyday even though I stopped inquiring here. I'm sorry it was more complicated than you were hoping for and I hope that you can get back to your routine again. hearts

Gail, big hugs for you. I hope you feel better quickly. hearts

Nan, have fun tonight. It was 11 degrees this morning and it was really hard to get myself out the door. I'll be cooking fish tonight too.

Joe, if you are bored come on over. I can always use a hiking buddy or help with a puzzle. grin12

Bets, you can always make a small pan for you and Bill.

Darlene, will you be traveling to see your mom? Have a great day.

Evelyne, I am so glad to see you enjoying yourself. Life is good! What does hubby do while you are in class?

Connie, how is hubby feeling?

Midgie, stay warm!

Gerry, you still walking every morning? Do you go later when it's so chilly?

Sue, you are up early today. I hope all is well in your corner of the world.

Back to work for me and then I'll get the dogs out after lunch. Hopefully I'll remain upright today. lol12

EDIT - I guess I took too long to type my post. Others snuck in. oops

L4L, if you have any leftover after you get done cooking, keep me in mind. lol12

Sorta, feeling any older today?

Ana wave12
