Entrepreneurial Ingenuity…

A police officer found a perfect hiding place for watching for speeding motorists.

One day, the officer was amazed when everyone was under the speed limit, so he investigated and found the problem.

A 10 year old boy was standing on the side of the road with a huge hand-painted sign that said “RADAR TRAP AHEAD.”

A little more investigative work led the officer to the boy’s accomplice. He found another boy about 100 yards beyond the radar trap holding up a sign reading “TIPS,” with a bucket at his feet full of change!

Just goes to show you can always make a bad situation better with some business ideas in mind.

3 Words That Aren’t Used Enough

Too many times there are fantastic words that fall through the cracks of our culture and society. Just like bringing retro colors back from the 80’s, I am going to petition to bring back these words just because of their awesomeness.

“Wigging Out”

Don’t ask me why I used this the other day. I have no idea, but once it slipped past my lips, I said to myself damn I should use that more often. When someone is “wigging out” it usually refers to freaking out or they are anxious about something. You usually get an uncomfortable feeling when someone is wigging out around you because you can’t quite get them to come back down to reality and calm down.

What If…It Rains

When people are talking about things going wrong and they say:

When it rains, it pours.

What if…there’s a rainbow at the end?

What if…it’s a light drizzle?

What if…you’re inside?

What if…you have an umbrella?

Just saying.

More to come!

What If…Sayings: 6 & What?

When in conversation you are talking about doing something different that really doesn’t change anything often times you say:

Six of one, half dozen of the other.

What if…you’re talking about a baker’s dozen?

What if…there aren’t 6 of anything?

What if…you can’t count to 6?

What if…what if there aren’t a dozen of the other?

Just saying.
