Conversations With John…

I have written previously about my conversations with John our train conductor. It probably can be a very boring job and he does find ways to enliven things. He usually is very quick with his answers and has witty comebacks. But not always…

The other day I saw John on the train with a band- aid around his middle finger. You know where this is going don’t ya?

I asked him if he had been sticking his finger someplace he should not have been.

For a second he did not know what to say then managed a smile and said he was showing the finger to someone and hurt himself. lol

Last week one day it was raining a lot. The coach where I normally sit had a seat across which had water droplets falling on to the seat. There were a few paper towels over the seat.

Was that supposed to keep the seat relatively dry for someone who chose to sit there? I mean was the person supposed to feel good that their butt would be relatively dry while their head /shoulders got soaked?

Another co-passenger stopped by and asked him about the leak. John started kidding with him about how it was not his job to fix the leak, all he was supposed to do was make sure the door was open, passengers got on board or got off and he closed them and punch tickets for passengers.

Then he went on about how the state did not have money to fix the trains, but did enough to just keep them running. He said even the seats had not been washed in ages and went on about how there were ages of "wind being broken in to the seats". He sure drew some chuckles.

Well did I gross ya all out already? Well here is something funny. Guess what? The source for this was also John. Monday morning he pulls out this piece of paper from his pocket and hands it to me. I ask him what is it? He says it's a love letter. LOL. What you see below is what was on the paper he gave me to read. I figured it might be some place on the web and it was.

WOMEN THINK THAT.......

Men are like.....Laxatives. They irritate the crap out of you.

Men are like.....Bananas. The older they get, the less firm they are.

Men are like.....Vacations. They never seem to be long enough.

Men are like.....Bank Machines. Once they withdraw they lose
interest.

Men are like.....Weather. Nothing can be done to change them.

Men are like.....Blenders. You need one, but you're not sure why.

Men are like.....Chocolate Bars. Sweet, smooth, and they usually head
right for your thighs.

Men are like.....Coffee. The best ones are rich, warm, and can keep you
up all night long.

Men are like.....Commercials. You can't believe a word they say.

Men are like.....Department Stores. Their clothes are always half off.

Men are like.....Government bonds. They take so long to mature.

Men are like.....Horoscopes. They always tell you what to do and are
usually wrong.

Men are like.....Mascara. They usually run at the first sign of
emotion.

Men are like.....Popcorn. They satisfy you, but only for a little while.

Men are like.....Snowstorms. You never know when they're coming, how
many inches you'll get or how long it will last.

Men are like.....Lava Lamps. Fun to look at, but not very bright.

Men are like.....Parking Spots. All the good ones are taken and the rest
are handicapped.

If We Have A Right To Dress Up For Halloween Shouldn't Man's Best Friend Have That Right Too?

Booooooooo!


Hot Diggity Dog!

I've seen John's letter, and of course prolly forwarded it on to 'the girls'. Like we do.

My 1-year old nephew would look fetching (no pun intended) in that dog's hot dog costume....

Men are yummy! And so are those cute, fat little doggies.

M (tread softly upon) said...

John is just awesome. You gotta love his sense of humor.
Do you think the dogs really enjoy being dressed up so? however cute they may look.

Sanjay said...

@Mona, Thats what I thought cos what John had was this e-mail that had done the rounds.

lol@your nephew in the hot dog costume.. there is an idea for ya for this Halloween, not sure what his folks would think of it though. ;)

@Jessica.. if you can get the right type sure..

@M -
Do you think the dogs really enjoy being dressed up so? however cute they may look.

I don't know, if it is cold I guess they apreciate the warmth from the costume. Short of that only a dog whisperer could probably answer that one. :)
