I know what you mean about 60-year-olds in the action movies, but sometimes you need experience and not just the kids who know how to shoot at paper targets.

I was just wondering: Do the teachers allow these guys with their pants almost off to enter the classroom?

We’ve been back in school three days, and I am already questioning why I returned. The kids are worse than ever, we have a new principal who seems insane, and our tech support is a joke since the best guy ever quit. It’s true you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone. 

Business has made great strides. When I was young, they didn’t have computers. Now, with the computer, one clerk can mess up more accounts than a dozen clerks could when I was young.

Hello, this is Santa. Sorry, but there are 600 people ahead of you and a two-year wait before you can get your garbage can. Sorry, I cannot grant you your Christmas wish.

All you people who think the economy is getting better, why don’t you ask all the folks over the age of 55 who have been out of work for a year and can’t find a job? I am 61 and have been out of a job for almost 15 months. All I want is an office job, and I can’t find one.

On a half-mile stretch of 45th Avenue in Highland, there are four gas stations. One day this week, they advertised gas at $3.69 per gallon. Two hours later, they all changed to $3.99. It’s a full-time job trying to keep up with these gas prices.

Is anyone else sick of seeing Suri Cruise carried around like she’s an infant? She’s 6 years old for crying out loud!
