We managed to get an 8 pack of double rolls of toilet paper today. There was a post on FB near our break so two of us went for a toilet paper run and made it on time. We thought it was kind of funny, it was like doing a coffee run, but toilet paper.

"Going to toilet paper anyone want anything?" "Sure I'll have a double charmin ultra soft please"

Don't worry the polar bears will relieve you of the toilet paper you got from the brown bears.

Just saw on Twitter that Spectrum is offering Showtime for free until 04/19 I believe it is. Kinda cool I guess; I'll take it.

Wife and I ventured into our nearest Costco today at high Noon and I got one of the last five packaged of TP (Scott 36-roll). Talk about timing.

Took the work truck to the car wash. It was so dead…

Audience: How dead was it?

It was so dead they actually decided to go ahead and clean the truck.

Verizon just gave us 15G of data, free for the next month. Our plan has 2G because I don't use any, the wife uses very little, the kid blows the plan in about a week. I'm just not going to pay for more.

Customer is a surgery tech at the VA. They had a 45 min in service to show them how to wash their hands. She thought it was a bit late if they haven't been doing it right.

So doctors need a 45 min lesson on hand-washing now?

We're all doomed.
