My Annual Thanksgiving Stay-cation

Though somewhat rarer than the “good-ol’-days”, many companies still offer paid holidays to their full time employees. My employer actually gives me Thanksgiving and Black Friday off with pay. Since I celebrated my 21st anniversary at work only a few weeks ago, I also have quite a bit of vacation time at my disposal.

Sadly, it’s not enough for a permanent vacation, so I try to find ways to maximize my time away from work. My annual Thanksgiving stay-cation is a perfect example of how I do that. Using just three vacation days, I can take the entire week off! I do a similar thing for Christmas too.

Now you may be saying, “But Diet, doesn’t your employer think it’s pretty shitty of you to take so much time off around the holidays?” To which my reply is, “Who care what they think? I want my fucking time outa here. I’ve earned it, and they’re going to give it to me.”

I don’t usually put my foot down in these areas, but this is one case where giving me time for myself is really in everyone’s best interests, and they’ve never once turned down my annual Thanksgiving stay-cation request.

So how would you rate this?

A Pricey Funeral

After James passed away, his will provided $35,000 for an elaborate funeral.

After the the services, the widow’s sister asked, “How much did this really cost?”

“All of it,” said the widow. “All thirty-five thousand.”

“No!” the sister exclaimed. “I mean, it was very nice, but $35,000?”

The widow explained, “The funeral was $10,000. I donated $2500 to the church. The wake, food, and drinks were another $500. The rest went for the memorial stone.”

“$22,000 for a memorial stone?” balked the sister. “My God, how big is it?!”

With a wry smile, the widow replied, “Two and a half carats.”

Luxury Cars

A guy driving a Yugo pulled up at a stoplight next to a Rolls-Royce.

The driver of the Yugo rolled down his window and shouted to the driver of the Rolls, “Hey, buddy, that’s a nice car. You got a phone in your Rolls? I’ve got one in my Yugo!”

The driver of Rolls looked over and said, “Yes I have a phone.”

The driver of the Yugo replied, “Cool! Hey, you got a fridge in there too? I’ve got a fridge in the back seat of my Yugo!”

The driver of the Rolls, looking annoyed, said, “Yes, I have a refrigerator.”

The driver of the Yugo said, “That’s great, man! Hey, you got a TV in there, too? You know, I got a TV in the back seat of my Yugo!”

The driver of the Rolls, getting rather peeved, said, “Of course I have a television. A Rolls-Royce is the finest luxury car in the world!”

The driver of the Yugo said, “Very cool car! Hey, you got a bed in there, too? I got a bed in the back of my Yugo!”

Upset that he did not have a bed, the driver of the Rolls-Royce sped away, and went straight to the dealer, where he promptly ordered that a bed be installed in the back of the Rolls.

The next morning, the driver of the Rolls picked up the car. The bed looked superb, complete with silk sheets and brass trim. It was clearly a bed fit for a Rolls Royce.

So the driver of the Rolls began searching for the Yugo. Finally he found the Yugo parked with all the windows fogged up on the inside. The driver of the Rolls got out and knocked on the Yugo. The owner rolled down the window and stuck his head out, soaking wet.

“I just wanted to mention that I have a bed in the back of my Rolls-Royce,” the Rolls driver stated arrogantly.

The Yugo’s owner looked at him and said, “You got me out of the shower for THAT?!”


Bonus:

Q: What’s the difference between a Jehovah’s Witness and a Yugo?

A: You can close the door on a Jehovah’s Witness.

Don’t Forget to Ask

After meeting in a singles bar, the man went back to the woman’s apartment for some heavy petting and a night of passionate sex.

The next morning when the guy woke up next to the woman, he looked into her eyes and asked, “By the way, I forgot to ask you if you ever had AIDS.”

The woman was slightly irked about the question, but she promptly denied that she had ever had the disease.

“That’s a relief,” said the man. “I’d hate to catch that again!”
