I will never...


...get my taxes done by a firm that advertises with some dude dressed up as the Statue of Liberty, waving on the side of the road.

...wear sweatpants with writing on the butt.

...drive a minivan.

...hear Huey Lewis and the News' "I Want a New Drug" and not want to sing along.

Yep.
Yep.
Hell, yep.
Dancing just thinking about it.

Agreed.

Never let your kids wear those lycra-like tight shorts with kitschy phrases like "tasty" or "naughty" across the butt either. I think that makes the mom look a bit tacky.

We have a similar guy in Pittsburgh. It's amazing what people will do for minimum wage.

I am so with you on the sweatpants thing. It is wrong and nasty.

This goes along with my rule of not taking a discount helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon being sold by a midget with a cardboard sign.

I love thos people they get to dress up and hold those signs. I especially love it when they hire grizzled black dudes to do it.

Yes. But how about a guy dressed up like a lobster to advertise tax services? We have that. If I didn't already have an accountant I might have the lobster guy do my taxes out of sheer pity. It's cold out there and he's dressed like a lobster...poor lamb. On second thought, he's probably not the actual accountant...

Jewgirl said...

I just hope HE isn't the actual accountant. Oy vey.

I've always told my daughters that the day you find yourself standing on a street corner dressed as a giant item of fast food or goofy character is the day you'll know you should've paid more attention to your education.

I like stuff and things. I've been married for close to 14 years and have two miniature versions of myself running around (and it frightens me most of the time). I have never been nor will I ever be a vegetarian.
