It'd be cheaper and more practical to put in a electric-powered chair lift rather than a 24m ramp.

The Superhand? LOL!

Good for him! I've cleaned up both human and animal vomit and have gotten to the point where that activity does not induce copycat vomiting in me. Matter of fact, I will (and have) cleaned up just about anything. I remember some embarrassing episodes of involuntary vomiting as a child ... people got VERY angry at me but I had a big problem with motion sickness back in the day. And I was way too sick to clean up the vomit myself.

About the only thing you can do in 5 minutes is run to the bathroom. Sometimes that's necessary too.

Problem is, they wouldn't even care if you did that.

I'm no enemy of the bottle, but I agree that coffee is more important. That said, I don't take creamer (real or artificial) or sugar in my coffee.

You can always say something like: "I'm at work. I'm sorry, but we can't discuss this here."

At present, I am doing in-home direct retail sales. Our warehouse/telemarketing center/home office has a similar sign in the washroom, requesting that washroom users make sure that the toilet is COMPLETELY flushed before leaving. All too often, it isn't. I just go ahead and flush it.

@ Late Night Geek, Why would somebody report you for locking your own car? That's insane!

Light beer is an abomination unto the Lord. If you want water go order a bottle of AquaFina fercryinoutloud. If you want beer go order a Guinness!

Criminals consider crime (in this case, Grand Theft Auto) to be their occupation. We can only hope that said car thieves aren't also employees of the establishment in question!

I can't imagine why any customer would ask for this. Normally, customers simply want their pizza box in their hands ASAP so that the contents can be consumed while hot and fresh! Not to mention the fact that pizza boxes don't lend themselves very well to decoration.

How about plain, ordinary basic clothes like conservatively styled plain short and long sleeved tee shirts for men and women that don't mysteriously acquire spots and mottled colors when laundered? I recently bought a purple-red long sleeved crew neck at WalMart, washed it a couple of times, and the color is no longer even, so I can't wear it to work any more. Out it goes, money down the drain, and I hate spending money! Even so, I'd rather pay an extra $2 or $3 to get an American-made, brand name knit shirt that holds its shape, size, and color and looks good for a year or two of frequent wearings. 30 years ago, when Sam Walton was still alive, I used to shop at WalMart fairly often for simple cotton tees, shorts, and so forth. They were made in the USA and wore like iron, never faded or shrank. News flash: American cotton is a heck of a lot better than the stuff you can get from the Far East. Same with the workmanship. Go back to basics and you've got a winner!

When in danger or in doubt, run in circles, scream, and shout!

St. Peter asked to be crucified upside down because he felt that he was unworthy to be crucified in the same manner as Jesus. However, anti-Christian and anti-religious groups have appropriated this as a symbol. It's also been used in movies as a symbol of evil.

When I worked at Rubik's Cube, we couldn't use the vacuum cleaner to clean up toner spilled from cartridges that were being recycled. The explanation given was that the toner would melt in the vacuum cleaner and destroy it. So we had to wet mop the stuff.

Maybe he can recoup part of his losses by auctioning off the mannequin and costume on eBay. Nonetheless, this prank was wrong every way you slice it.

For somebody who was working back stock your appearance has NOTHING to do with the requirements of the job. You need a lawyer.

Before I've had my coffee, I'm incapable of conversing with anybody about anything, and that's that.

Keychain cards always break off and get lost. Using phone numbers makes a lot more sense.
