No Tickee, No Washee

A phrase made popular at the Chinese laundry where they would only return a customer’s wash when they had the ticket (receipt) with them.  I got my second Covid-19 jab today and everything went fine, till I stopped for gas and then opted in on the carwash for an extra $10.  I pulled in and my cousin kept yelling at me to stop, before I actually reached the area where the washing occurs and the thing timed out and we got into a big argument with her saying that I don’t read directions and me thinking that she was panicking.

Do Inmates Make License Plates

The pope may or may not be Italian, but he is certainly Catholic, which probably has nothing to do with the price of soybeans in the Stock Market.  The answer is yes, as prisoners make millions of license plates each year among other things.  One year when my dad got his new license plates in the mail, there was a piece of paper included between his front and rear plates.  It contained a cartoon picture of a convict holding the bars in his cell with a voice caption that said, “Help get me out of here.”

Profiles in Cowardice

John F. Kennedy wrote the book Profiles in Courage (actually his wife Jackie wrote this) which was about Senators doing the right thing when they were confronted with a tough decision, and I think that somebody needs to write a new book that deals with the Republican Senators that are still backing Trump, instead of doing the right thing.
