6:15- So a few weeks ago, an older gentleman I work with had his zipper down. There was much discussion on how to tell him for fear of embarrassment. It got me to thinking what ways have you heard to tell someone their zipper is down? I know:
-XYZ PDQ (Examine Your Zipper Pretty Darn Quick)
-Do you feel a draft?
This morning I heard:
-The barn door is open and the horse is about to escape.
I also read David Letterman's Top 10 list on the subject. Here are some of my faves:
8. You need to bring your tray table to the upright and locked position.
7. Paging Mr. Johnson... Paging Mr. Johnson..
6. Elvis is leaving the building.
1. I always knew you were crazy, but now I can see your nuts.
6:45- Can you do that? I guess you can. SMOKERS NOT WANTED
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — Smokers -- not welcome. That's the word from the Springfield, Missouri, based hospital chain CoxHealth. CEO Steve Edwards says they won't be hiring smokers. And don't bother lying on your job application. Edwards says potential new hires have to undergo nicotine screening, that also detects the use of chewing tobacco, e-cigarettes and even nicotine patches. The Springfield News-Leader reports the policy takes effect November 21, the date of "The Great American Smokeout" sponsored by the American Cancer Society.
7:15- Now there's a way for kids to get rid of questionable content on social media.
There is a new law in California to protect minors from online embarrassment!
If only something like this existed for adults. A new law in California will allow minors to delete their embarrassing or incriminating social media posts! Under the so-called “eraser law,” which will go into effect in 2015, web companies will be required to obey a California minor’s request to delete any content they created. The law has its limits- for instance, it only applies to content posted by the minor in question, so photos or material posted by someone else or copied and posted on another site isn’t covered. And adults can’t go back and get rid of something they posted as a minor. But lawmakers say the law will help ensure the mistakes young people make today- some of them, anyway- don’t haunt them for the rest of their lives.
