Weddings are not just expensive to throw, but go to. According to a survey by American Express, this year’s cost of showing up for a wedding will cost a guest about $539 and a member of the wedding party $577, each is 75% more than in 2012. The major buck busters are jewelry, clothes, and babysitting or pet sitting. And then there’s the wedding gift. The average cost for a gift is $97 for a friend and $144 for a family member. What I like to do to a couple is go to their house like a year later and ask them to see what you bought them. Then watch as the look of sheer terror comes over both their faces!
One of the great questions in the office is, “is the bathroom free?’ You’d hate to walk the 50 feet only to find yourself standing outside. That’s why someone came up with the IsTheBathroomFree app. Your office buy the sensors for the doors and wmployees download the app and if the urge hits and you don’t want to waste the steps you can just open the app and it will tell you if it’s occupied. It also needs an air sensor to let you know whether or not it’s safe to go into.
Suspended over a question. Granted, it was one he was asked not to ask but he’s an 18 year old kid. It’s his life mission to do the opposite of what he’s told. A Pennsylvania teenager is suspended for asking Miss America to prom during an assembly. She was there to talk to the kids about following their dreams, and when it was question time, he stepped up to the plate and tried to hit a home run. Of course, word got around before the assembly that he was going to do it so school administrators pulled him aside and told him not to. He did anyway and was shot down…in front of the entire school. Given he’s now the talk of the school, the suspension is probably the best thing that could have happened to him.
Bubba Watson made it rain at Waffle House. It’s his thing, when he wins a tournament, he goes to Waffle House. After he had the green jacket slipped on him Sunday, he hit the one in Augusta , where he had a double grilled cheese with a side of hash browns, and whatever else for his wife and four or five friends…so the bill was what, $18-$20? He left a $148 tip on the bill. Wonder what he’ll leave the dry cleaner for getting the grease stain out of the jacket?
You can be in the sequel to the SYFY movie, “Sharknado”. Producers say they’re trying to raise $50-thousand dollars for a bonus scene that would include “chainsaws being used in the vicinity of sharks.” So they’ve decided to finance that scene through the website, IndieGoGo, and among the things your money can buy are:
–For $45, they’ll name a shark that appears in the movie after you.
–If you fork over $120 bucks, they’ll record your scream and use it in a scene
–$5,000 bucks gets you a walk-on with either a death scene or a heroic scene
“Sharknado 2,” will be out July 31. Just when you thought it was safe to turn SyFy back on.
(Actually, it’s never been safe.)
