Recommended Posts

These are from an email I received so I am sure they have been around a while. I know a few are really old, but I thought a few of you may not have seen them before.

back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can

buy cigarettes at the front?

and a diet coke?

pens to the counters?

worth thousands of dollars in the

driveway and put our useless junk in the garage?
