    The "Anything Goes" Thread

    I thought I'd start a thread that might work, using the perfect name of this forum. If the mods want me to change it, out of respect for the forum itself, I'd go with "Observations Of Everyday Folks". Don't get me wrong, but I prefer the title I chose initially, because it seems to describe what I am trying to promote in this thread.

    ~~~~~~~

    Here's the premise. This thread is for anyone to throw down observations they make, whether they be of interest, humour, "what the heck is that about??", or anything that can be neatly scribed in a fairly short space, and hopefully add the tiniest sliver of value for other members, as they drop by. This is not necessarily about responding to one another's observations, but it is definitely not off limits....which is basically saying, you are always welcome to respond to one another, in this valuable MB.

    ~~~~~~~~

    So here's my first.....

    How is it that folks that go to work out at the gym are often seen driving around in circles, trying to find a slightly closer parking spot???

    I am never surprised that the same dude who spends $50,000 or more on a vehicle, is the same person who will make a fuss over a small tip.

    I used to be in a group where we hunted for forclosure deals. (with some but not great success).
    Anyway, we would walk up to a door where the owner is about to have his 200-250k house was about to go into forclosure.
    But....you look outside the house and they have a cherried out almost new truck probably worth 60 k in the driveway. lol

    Yesss.

    Here's a related one:

    People sell their place for tons of money, and have little trouble taking the money, but have little respect cleaning up for the new owners.

    Dbacks are often great players, but there's a reason many of them are not on O....

    Just my observation, and reawoken by Dizz's thread, but are Poodles gradually taking over the world? It seems that if you are not some sort of "oodle", you are not trending upward!
