Story Time: "The Moral To The Story Is ... "

Once upon a time, a teacher in Cobb County gave her fifth grade class an assignment to have their parents tell them a story with a moral at the end of it.

The next day the kids came back and one by one began to tell their stories. “Tony, do you have a story to share?” the teacher asked.

“Yes ma'am. My daddy told me a story about my Aunt Karen when she was a pilot in the Air Force and her plane got shot down.

She had to bail out over enemy territory and all she had was a flask of whiskey, a pistol and a survival knife. She drank the whiskey on the way down to calm her nerves.

However, her parachute ended up landing right in the middle of the enemy troops. So she shot fifteen of them with her gun until she ran out of bullets then killed four more with her knife and then she killed the last Taliban fighter with her bare hands.”

“Good Heavens” said the horrified teacher. “What kind of moral did your daddy try and tell you from this horrible story?”

“He told me to stay the heck away from Aunt Karen when she's been drinking.”

Try This With Your Boss & Let Me Know How It Works For You.

Dear Boss

I have enjoyed working here these past several years. You have paid me very well and given me benefits beyond belief.
I have 3-4 months off per year, a pension plan that will pay my salary till the day I die and a health plan that most people can only dream about.
Despite this, I plan to take the next 12-18 months to find a new position.
During this time, I will show up for work when it is convenient. In addition, I fully expect to draw my full salary and all the other perks associated with my current job.
Oh yeah, if my search for this new job proves fruitless, I will be back with no loss in pay or status. Before you say anything, remember that you have no choice in the matter. I can and will do this.


Every Senator or Congressman running for President.

Story Time: Unemployment Compensation

Once upon a time Sven and Olaf worked together in a Minnesota factory....and both were laid off. So...dey went to the Unemployment Office together.
Asked his occupation, Olaf said, 'Panty stitcher. I sew da elastic onto da ladies cotton panties.'
The clerk looked up panty stitcher. Finding it classified as unskilled labor, she gave Olaf $300 a week in unemployment compensation.
Sven, when asked his occupation replied, 'Diesel fitter.'
The clerk looked up diesel fitter...and it was classified as a skilled job. So, the clerk gave Sven $600 a week in unemployment compensation.
When Olaf found this out, he was furious! He stormed back into the office to find out why his friend and co-worker was collecting double his benefits.
The clerk explained, 'Panty stitchers are unskilled labor and diesel fitters are skilled labor.'
'Vat skill?' yelled Olaf. 'I sew da elastic on da panties. Olaf puts dem over his head and says,
'Yah...... DIESEL FITTER.'

Thanks, (I think) to Lanny

I'll miss Skip pulling me aside and telling me a joke that was not politically correct ... I'll miss his sarcasm ... I'll miss his incredible behind-the-scene sport stories ... I'll miss his candor ... I'll miss hearing his voice call the Braves games. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
