    Post-It Quotes

    I just thought of something my dad said and it inspired me to start this thread.

    Have you ever heard anyone say something that made you laugh, cry or made you think...hmm, I can relate to that?
    Post it here and be sure to tell us who said it. It can be anyone, from Comedians, Actors, Family Members, Friends... anyone!! All is good!

    Here's mine...

    My dad is a hoot and he's too funny without even trying to be.
    I was telling him about how Credit Card companies send all those offers in the mail or call and he told me this...

    "Next time those Credit Card companies call or send offers in the mail, and they want to "own your soul", ask them if you have to pay it back?!! That'll get rid of 'em!"

    I'll probably have more if this thread progresses...
    Enjoy!

    A DJ (& NO not my Boyfriend? ) is so humorous with his afternoon traffic report here in the Triad...

    If there are many accidents, he will claim ...

    "The traffic is Knee Deep in the Hoopla!"
    Also...

    If there is a car fire...
    he'll say...

    "Look out for the car on fire on I-40 ... We have a "Car B Q!"

    Too cute! The Shark Rocks!

    Not terribly cute for the people in accidents or with their car on fire, I suppose.

    Where I live, the ratio of cars fires to people who die in car fires is about 100/1, maybe more. Especially in the summer. Idiot people don't pull over until the smoke coming out of their hood obstructs their view. Then, surprise surprise, we've got another car fire! About five years ago, something loud and smoky pulled up in front of the building where I live (I'm on the second story), and I looked out the window, and this truck with a camper shell was completely over heated. All of a sudden, it caught fire...and it went up quick! I was so afraid of propane exploding, I grabbed my cat, and went into my bedroom closet. It's a good thing that most car fires don't cause injury or death, because that is tragic and horrible, and something no one would find humor in. But for those who can't (or just plain won't) read their gauges, I don't mind a joke at their expense, especially in the Fun & Games threads!

    Love the thread idea, BoBo! Here's one of my favorites (the quote, not the author):

    "Unless I discipline myself to write, I talk too much." - Richard Nixon

    Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace. The soul that knows it not, knows no release from little things; knows not the livid loneliness of fear. - Amelia Earhart.
