Okay... Something in a bit darker vein... (probably the worst thing I've ever done)

A superior was building B.S. cases against people and getting his subordinates kicked out of the Army to make himself look good. (He was in danger of being booted out because he was overweight) He didn't think I was smart enough to know what he was doing, so one day, he comes over to my barracks room after having been across the street at the gym, all sweaty and nasty, and sits his foul stinky self down on my bunk and says, "Hey, buddy!" (at this moment, inspiration hit!) I said, "Gosh, sergeant! You look like you could use a glass of water!" He agreed, so I went into the bathroom, ran the sink, dipped the glass in the toilet bowl, wiped the outside of the glass, then turned off the sink and carried it back to him. He drank it down like it was Evian or something. Then he left. I laughed 'til I cried... A month later, I received a much envied transfer to the local aviation unit, and he was booted out of the Army.

Moral of the story:

1. Don't mess with medics. They are devious.

2. Karma is a real mutha!

Growing up in California, all of the breaker boxes were mounted on the outside of the houses. Every Christmas, our white trash neighbors on all sides, would erect the most gaudy, horrid Christmas decorations. Big, illuminated plastic Santa on the rooftop with the plywood sleigh and reindeer, thousands of yards of Christmas lights, etc. ad nauseum. A buddy and I would run around and throw the mains. The coup de grace was when the people living in the three-story house down the block had a HUGE Christmas party. The whole place was lit up like, well, like Christmas. There were people all over the place, on all floors, Christmas tree lit up, lights everywhere...

Richard and I crept up to the breaker box and POOF!!!!! "Tenebris ex Lux." LMAO

Cue mass confusion... LOL

hahaha... I have more stories. I'll save them for another time. Honestly, I am a gracious host. This guy really had it coming. He'd messed over a LOT of people and I'd put up with his constant assault on my medical and soldiering reputation and honor for nearly a year. If the worst that ever happens to him is that he drank a glass of toilet bowl water, he got off very lightly.

That's a little sick, Frank. But in the same vein, in the early days of my secretarial career, I often had to "fetch" people coffee. Sometimes, I did mind, because either I didn't like the person or their attitude. Anyway... to make a long story short....I often wondered how they liked the taste of my saliva.


(Note: Monica... I'm a gracious host, don't worry, I won't spit in the drinks.... and if you it pleases you... just open a fresh can or bottle of whatever - and make sure to watch it during the party... hehehehehe. \:D

You know, Rocky - you are right. Looking back on my behavior... it was indeed a dangerous thing to do. Seriously. With all these diseases and AIDS and so many germs... I actually did this act like around 1983 or thereon... before... really... any stuff like that was on people's consciousness - certainly not mine. For the record - I'm pretty healthy... never had any of those kinds of problems (knock wood)... but you're right... Rocky... it was yucky.

And no, markb - I didn't bring you any drinks.

And as for Frank_W and his toilet water high tale - just major yikes - (shaking you up in a rough sort of way) - whatever were you thinking, man??? EWWWWWWWWWW.

kokomo61 - nooooooooooooo (screaming and racing around the kitchen......(it wasn't chicken?)...

There's the one about the chap on his last day at work who told the HUGE caretaker of the offices that the Managing Director needed an axe in his office immediately. He then told the Managing Director that the huge caretaker was running amok with an axe...and left.

Which reminds me of a funny thing that happened here in Maine about two years ago. We had a Chinese restaurant near by. The kids wouldn't eat any where else. Well one day some of the staff were caught out back snaring seagulls. It seems they were serving the gulls as chicken. True story! The kids didn't eat Chinese food for at least a year after that. Ahhhh...I could finally go to an Italian restatraunt. :p

I was riding the commuter trains in Tokyo. There was no place to sit, so I was standing, minding my own business, when one old fart looks across at another and says in Japanese (of course), "Look at this big ol' gaijin!" (foreigner) The other says, "What a buffoon!" The first fella says, "What a barbarian!" And they go back and forth, playing this little game, trying to one-up each other. It was actually quite funny, and I pretended not to understand a lick of what they were saying. The last comment, as the train was pulling up to my stop was, "I hate foreigners. I wish they all would leave." I turned to the fella who'd said it, and replied in Japanese, "Well, if you'll pay my plane fare, I'll leave tomorrow!" Then I smiled and exited the train. The looks on their faces were priceless. \:D
