Good ones, Hermanus104, you've got it!

Here's another:

You'll always have "friends"

if you drive a pick up truck

or win a jackpot

You hit the nail on the head with the pickup trucks Coin Toss. I can attest to that.

I've had pickups all my life and at one time I was thinking about getting business cards printed up saying: No, I'm busy, I can't help you move this weekend and no, you can't borrow my pickup truck and let me use your piece of crap car for the weekend.

I even had to be guarded when answering questions. For instance when someone asked what I was doing over the weekend, instead of telling them "nothing", I would ask what they were doing. If they said they were moving then I was going out of town (and I needed my pickup).

It was amazing how ignorant people could get thinking just because you have a pickup you were available for hauling stuff everyday after work and every weekend.

No wonder I'm an eccentric recluse living in a secluded holler in a remote area now.


                                             
                     
                                         

 

 

 

 

                                                                                                   

"The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing"

    Hahaha, don't forget the "Hey you want to come over and have a few beers" Then after you show up its " Yah we gotta do this one thing first" The one thing is 3 hours of moving someone elses stuff.

    Lottery Haikus eh?

    Most expensive meal

    The day i win the jackpot

    One hundred tacos(burgers)

     

    New friends will show up

    After I get that big check

    My old friends I'll keep

     

    A few dollars here

    A few more bucks over there

    A jackpot i've spent

      rdgrnr, Taipanez,

      Yeah, you've both got it nailed with the pick up scenarios.

      Another haiku:

      Discussions die fast

      but not if about systems

      'though none has yet worked

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

        Systems come and go

        most are just mere jobs of snow

        yet people praise them

                  I don't downgrade the US Postal Service. They do that themselves. I just comment on it.

                  I've lived in Chicago, the PO was just as bad there.

                  It's probably improved since ca- got there.

                  She doesn't seem like one of those mind-numbed, robotic, shuffling zombies with the "where am I" look on their face you usually see walking a route or behind the counter. (not that there's anything wrong with that)

                      LoL CT, I've probably lived them.

                      I remember when the Postmaster in Chicago spent over a million dollars redecorating their office in a building they were moving out of.

                      Punishment? Transferred to another post office.

                      I saw tapes of postal workers going through mail bins picking out all the colored envelopes (birthday cards with possible cash) and keeping them. They were caught red handed.

                      Punishment? Transferred to another post office.

                      Lessons learned? Always send birthday cards in white envelopes and don't trust the post office with a winning lottery ticket. Even when they catch someone stealing they don't prosecute, they just transfer them to continue stealing at a different post office.
