fun in the car

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
picked my better half up from work today and was driving home and then got nailed in traffic. As usual, I have to do something to entertain myself and so I am sat there with the window closed and listening to my wife yakking away. The bloke on my side was watching me funny and he had all of his BMW windows open. Just for a bit of fun, I picked up my mobile phone and pretended to start to talk. No one there but the chap thought I was chatting away and he was STILL watching me - nosy sod. So I presses the button and down comes the window, I looked at my phone, then at him, and back at the phone and him again and above the noise of the road, i reached out of the window and half passed the mobile to him. I shouted "Its for you".
He looked absolutely stunned at me, the lights changed and I drove off with my wife in hysterics.

You want a little more fun...? Get yourself stuck in traffic and do something to get the attention of the car drivers on either side. Then in your left hand, pretend to hold a needle like one uses for sewing. With your right, pretend to be holding the end of some cotton and you are trying to get the cotton through the eye. You keep bringing your finger tips to your mouth as if to lick the cotton to get it straight and then keep looking as though you are trying. I GUARANTEE that after a few seconds, you will have a captive audience of all the cars around you and wishing that invisible cotton to go through that invisible needle you are holding in your left hand.

Just smile a little - its infectious - you smile at someone and they will smile back.

trying to make people smile.

Had an ice cream this evening whilst my wife and I were out for a walk. The woman asked me if I wanted crushed nuts...if only she knew I already had them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You remind me of my friend in college. Just for fun we'd skip down the mall humming Tchaikovsky's Sugar Plum Fairy. It was so fun to watch people react!

My younger brother, who is supposed to be a doctor of mathematics and I love to have fun in the lift. if we are out together, we blow up a small whoopee cushion, put it up one of our backs, inside a T Shirt - always get into the lift 1st and then lean against the wall with our back.. makes a heck of a tight noise and then we blame it on someone else- asking if they would not mid doing it!

We do a whole heap of other things in lifts that would make you laugh - possibly now we live 200 miles from each other!!

A good friend of my family has this fart machine that he puts in the top corner of the lift and pushes the remote whenever there are people in there - the reactions are really funny.

Kev, you are too funny! Where do you come up with this stuff?

I dont come up with it - some stuff I hear and then think about something that would mildly amuse me. I have a mate once who got sacked for laughing at a joke I had told him before he had left for work one morning. Can you believe that - he was sat driving and started laughing and just could not stop. He was in stitches at traffic lights, junctions etc. His employment was terminated when the hearse he was driving came to a stop at the cemetry and he parked up!!!!
We still laugh at that one together.
I used to install and comission fire alarm systems and have stories that would make your hair turn blue.

My sister in law asked me the other day about the expenditure in getting her breasts enlarged. I advised her to rub them with toilet paper. She was astounded and asked if this really worked. I told her it worked on her ass over the years so why not.

Have not heard from her in the last few days and my wife is wondering if I have said something I should not have??? I think I am in the clear

My sister in law - a nun, not a chance - she is the opposite completely. She has been banned from swimming inside British waters in case they bring back harpooning and whale hunting and go after her! The last time she went swimming, she came out of the sea and sat down - they had to call out the save the whale association to lift her onto a truck and take her home.
If she goes in a local pool, the kids use her as one of those bouncy inflatable things!

Loved the mexican thing - have forwarded that to a mate in Texas!

Kev, if you really do have a sister in law, I hope she doesn't find this site. All jokes aside she would probably be devasted to read your posts about her, if she does indeed have a weight problem.

I have found your posts to be lighthearted and fun, but the ones about your sister in law just made me sad. Maybe I'm just too sensitive but I personally know many folks who battle their weight, and I have to be very pro-active about my own. I find making fun of overweight people to be one of the last acceptable forms of cruelty and I would hope that anyone who posts here would consider it a 'safe' place, away from the mocking of others.


Again, I think you are a very considerate person, that's why I found your posts out of character.

Oh Kev! You crack me up! I enjoy reading your posts so much....I always know I can get a chuckle out them!

Oh Kev! You're a scream I love coming to TCS and reading your funny posts

The thing about Crushed Nuts made me cry with laughter!

Rock on dude, a little light hearted fun never killed anybody!

I really do have a sister in law - came with being married to the other sister I guess. As far as her reading the site and my comments - she is a social leprophyte who has worked very little, bad mouths me and her sister (my wife)100 percent, gets everything possible from the social and has little or no intention of working. She believes that the world owes her a living - its does not - the world was here first! She has a mouth like - well I leave it there but lets put it that way - she is not nor ever will be on your party list.

I have never mentioned in my post - weight - she is a very tall person to be factual that carries a few lbs but then again, I weigh more and I am the first person to take the michael out of myself for anything and everything. If you cant laugh at yourself - whats the point ???? I have racked weight up this last week following surgery and knowing I cant do nothing about it for a month does not make me happy at all. I never make fun of someone that is overweight - however, it is something that can be dealt with nor would I make comments about someones affliction- whatever it may be. I have a 60 year old relative in hospital dying of lung cancer at this moment - caused throught 40 years of working on building sites and with asbestos - he carries a few lbs and we do everything to laugh it off and laugh at it - for as long as he has left and is smiling - its worth it - - However, if I offended you in any way - then accept my sincere apologies and wil close the subject there.

Kev,

I'm all about laughing at myself with others. The reason your post struck me as unkind was because she isn't here to laugh with us about her extra weight. I personally would be devastated to know I was the butt of fat jokes on some internet sites by a family member, hell by anyone, but especially a family member. If she were here and trading insults and jokes with you, it would be an entirely different matter.

Your sister in law may very well be an awful person, but that wasn't info I knew when I read your post so I just felt bad for her.

There was another post here where one of our members vented about her sister, and said things probably worse than what you did, but it came off as sincere hurt and anger and not mocking and cruel, so it didn't hit me in the same cavalier way that your post did. I have nothing against people venting here, complaining about others, I think that can be very therapeutic.

It wouldn't be acceptable on this board to make fun of someone because of their race or religion for example, but making fun of fat people is okay. That's what I meant when I said it's the last acceptable form of cruelty.

no need to apoligize, I just wanted to explain where I was coming from. I think you are a very nice person and I enjoy what you contribute here.
