"Dad, cancel my allowance immediately, rent my room out, throw all my clothes out of the window, take my TV, and stereo, and iPhone, and iPod, and my laptop. Please take all of my jewelry to the Salvation Army or Cash Converters. Then sell my new car, take my front door key away from me and throw me out of the house. Then disown me and never talk to me again. And don't forget to write me out of your will and leave my share to my brother.”
Well, she didn't put it quite like that. What she actually said was, “Dad, this is my new boyfriend, he supports the Washington Commanders."
At long last the good-humored boss was compelled to call Fisk into his office.
"It has not escaped my attention," he pointed out, "that every time there's a home game at the stadium you have to take your aunt to the doctor."

I recently took my wife grocery shopping near Detroit at one of those Supermarkets where you have to insert a quarter in the Shopping cart to unlock from the next cart.
My wife used the cart for all that she was getting. When she came to the car with the grocery, I loaded them into the car and she took the shopping cart. Rather then put the cart back to get her quarter back, I noticed she turned over the shopping cart to someone going into the market and didn't even get a quarter.
I thought to myself, "I guess Detroit Lions are not the only ones that give away their 'Quarter Back'!"
