 ^^^ I have been dealing with those for 18 years now. I have passed enough gravel to pave a decent size driveway.  :-D

OUCH, Haven't had the pleasure of fighting those.........yet, but had diverticulitis for years, 2 gut surgeries over 5 weeks, "knock on wood" things have been, shall we say, moving along much better for several years now. I hope I don't regret saying it, we all know Murphy................. :P

Hey, that was my joke!  I guess I'm not as funny and original as I thought.  I'm about 30 hours in on the fifth one in the last two months.  According to the CT scan this should be the last one.

What am I eating right now?  Oxycodone.

I was averaging one every 3 weeks for a couple of years. Now it's about 7 a year.

Ouch! Glad I have never had the joy of passing stones. I know a lot of folks that have, and most of them drank a lot of sodas. I'll stick with my beer and water. It has worked, so far.  ;D

I hate when I'm in my room, making love, and my wife comes in and makes me stop! :-D

People who can't do the job they were given.

This happened to me yesterday........

My moment at Reasor's deli counter.

Me... I need 20 oz of the sharp cheddar cheese.

Deli lady...... How many pounds is that?

Me.... One and a quarter pounds.

Deli lady.... How many ounces in a pound?

Me... 16 ounces.

Deli lady... How many ounces in a quarter pound.

Me.... How many ounces in a pound?

Deli lady.... Uh 16?

Me... What is a fourth of 16?

Deli lady.... I'm not sure.

Me... Divide 16 by 4.

Deli lady... Uh 4?

Me.... Yes.  So, it would be 1 pound and 4 ounces.

Deli lady... Oh, I get it now. I should give you one pound and 4 ounces of cheese.

Me.... Yes, thank you.

She ended up giving me 22 ounces of cheese.  I could say something about her wanting $15 dollars per hour, but I'll let sleeping dogs lie.

I wasn't bitching - just sharing a funny story. It happened 25 years ago, and it still gives me a good laugh when something like this reminds me of it.
That is really a good one.

Nick,

I remember trying to help a member who was planning to start a pizzeria. He was looking for a sauce recipe. I found one at the PMQ Think Tank. He complained that the recipe was twice the amount he needed. As best I could tell, he didn't know how to divide by two. I remember asking myself how he could be a success in the pizza business if he couldn't divide by two.

I have also observed over the years that some people just can't handle fractions. One member asked me to convert volume measurements that were produced by one of the dough calculating tools to the measuring spoon sizes that he had. Admittedly, some of the volume measurements were not exact teaspoon sizes but the member couldn't round the numbers to the nearest measurement spoon sizes. I had to do it for him. These kinds of things do not bother me. I just know that some people are lousy with math. I remember in high school where the smarted person in my class was a girl who had the best grades in just about everything but math, where she did poorly. But for the math, she would have been number one (the valedictorian) in her senior graduating class. So, I don't hold it against people who do not do well with math.

I was very nice to her. I just helped her along. She was in her mid 40's, and she was nice but flustered. I was kind of surprised that she had a hard time figuring out weights. Everything they sell in that dept. has to be weighed to get the price. I thanked her and wished her a nice day. She did put a smile on my face. Hope she gets the hang of it.
