What's mildly amusing you today?

Our suburb's little newspaper contained an article about a new resort hotel, which will be the "second-largest employer in the city!" with its 1,200 new jobs.

The largest employer in the city... is Dell, with over 13,000 employees. But, yeah, I guess the resort is technically the second-largest.

Re: What's mildly amusing you today?

I was getting phone calls, sometimes 5 or 6 a day, that had the number blocked. One time I answered out of curiosity and it was a recording telling me the company I had purchased computer security from had gone out of business and they wanted to refund two years subscription. That's bullshit so I would usually just pick-up/hang-up to break the connection so they couldn't leave a voice mail, but if I wasn't near the phone they would.

So I dialed into Verizon voice mail which is a pain after recent changes where I have to listen to the recording recite the time and the caller's number before I can hear the message.  But this time they gave me the callers number that was blocked, 954-652-3780.

I called the number and after a lot of clicking and various sound effects I hear "the number you have reached is not in service, please check the number and call again." That was several days ago and haven't had a call since.

Re: What's mildly amusing you today?

We had a pretty decent hail storm a couple of days ago. Mr. Clod was like, "we should check the roof for damage." I was like, "There's no need, the ambulance-chasers will call us."

Sure enough, just got my first cold-call from a roofing company offering to inspect it for free. There's going to be a lot of new roofs going up on our street in the next few weeks.

In  that case I think it would count as personal advertising. I'm sure that would be against company rules https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons3/smile.png

I don't understand what it was even supposed to be.

McDonald's Yass, like McDonalds Yes?  Like you are happy that there is a McDonalds? Or is Yass a location or something?

Re: What's mildly amusing you today?

A house across the road had a couple of bright green vans pull up a few days ago, and a small posse of people in bright green shirts got out.  The vans and the shirts said "One Day Painting" on them.  They've been here almost every day since (3 or 4), more vans and more people each day -it was like a tailgate party in the garage this afternoon, the street was full of cars regular ones as well as bright green ones, and there were so many people in green shirts mostly hanging out in the garage and smoking. 

I don't think I'll be hiring that company, even if the reason is that that house in the new One Day Painting company headquarters

Fashion always amuses me, when the covid shot nurse asked me if I'd lost my sense of taste I told her no, I alway dress this way.
But I'm always amused by shoe fashion...

Re: What's mildly amusing you today?

I've been working my way through Brit fly-on-the-wall docco 24 Hours in A&E and am amused by the sign that says "Resus Only" because -with my visual field cut- I don't see the first letter of words I read and generally my brain fills in before I shift my focal point to see what the letter really is, so I keep reading "Jesus Only" https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons3/laughing.png
