Joke of The Week 

Flying Directions

A helicopter pilot is flying to Seattle, and hits a pea-soup-thick fog bank. He’s completely disoriented, and flies blindly around until he spies the top few floors of an office building. He pulls up real close to it, and gets the attention of a woman sitting at her desk.

“Excuse me!” he yells to the woman. “Where am I?”

“You’re in a helicopter,” she replies.

The pilot pulls off sharply to the left, takes one or two crisp turns through the dense fog, and then does a perfect blind landing at the Seattle-Tacoma Airport.

“That was amazing!” says a passenger. “How did you know from that woman’s answer where you were?”

“Easy,” says the pilot. “Her answer, while correct, was absolutely useless.

So I immediately knew the building had to be Microsoft Tech Support.”.

Universal Photo Contests

The first photo contest begins December 1st. The theme for the contest is Artistic Approach. Do you have a photo that has an artistic air or result whether it was planned or not? (Thanks Janet for the description and idea).

Check it out for bracelets and necklaces.

This week I'd like to talk about respect. I'm firmly convinced that there is an entire generation that is totally unaware of the meaning of the word.

Where I work we have a public washroom, for the convenience of our customers. It is kept unlocked and is around the side of the building where I can't see it.

I'll spare you all the disgusting details, let's just say that I am constantly amazed at how creative people can be when fingerpainting with their own feces. This tends to happen after a carload of college/university boys (I refuse to call them men, no matter their age) has stopped for a break. Interesting observation, eh?

Is the act supposed to be funny? Do they not care that someone (me) has to clean their mess? Is it a male bonding thing? They obviously have no respect for whoever happens to need that washroom after them.

We are supposed to be a "civilized society" but a generation of boys has slipped through without being taught this fact. These are supposed to be the leaders of tomorrow...I fear we, as a society, are in grave danger.

See you around the Universe!
