I can hear the pick up lines now...



I'm in Nursing school and I'm not shy about answering questions posed to the class. Sometimes I say the wrong answer and if someone else answers at the same time and the Professor says "I'm hearing it wrong" I say the wrong answer LOUDER because I figure it's not me that is wrong.

My lab partners crack up over these goofs.

Re: Dumb Response Of The Day


One that my wife still bugs me about was one time that I called an archie back about a job he called me about. I was leaving him a message trying to be all professional and stuff. At the end I said, "Ok well too da loo for now". I get off the phone and my wife just looks at me and says "Really? Too da loo? Did you just say Too da loo?"

Re: Dumb Response Of The Day


Reminds me of my friend ordering coffee at DQ:

"what would you like in it? Cream, Milk..."

"yeah, two of each"

"two milk two cream?"

"No, wait that doesn't make sense"

I remember one time i introduced myself to a potential customer and his reply was " i'm sorry i cant give you my name, we have not reached that level of intimacy yet". I just walked away laughing.

Re: Dumb Response Of The Day


I know this is an old line but I had to use on my second wife.
Just before the divorce were into it and she sayes: Fine I'll move out then so you can be happy."
I had to do it.
I said "I don't want to be happy, I want to be with you!"

It worked! She laughed a lil.

Just what I wanted. Ice broken..

We did part though BUT, Were still friends to this day.

Re: Dumb Response Of The Day


I never really thought about it much (or never noticed it) but I think after having watched The Big Bang Theory for quite a while now that I've started to notice meaningless drivel that people say.

Examples:

I drive to my folk's house in my pickup. My dad is working on something in the carport in front of his workshop. When I get out, the first thing he says is, "You didn't drive your Buick?"

I'm in the driveway putting gas in my mower. The neighbor across the alley sees me and asks, "Gonna mow your yard?"

I turn the water on in the shower and take my clothes off. I'm sticking my hand in the water (to test the temp) and my wife will ask, "Are you going to take a shower?"

I'm a couple of blocks away from my home, walking down the sidewalk with my dog at the end of a leash. One of my closer neighbors drives by, rolls down their window and asks, "Taking Phydeaux for a walk?"

As Bill Engvall says, "Here's your sign."

Is this one of those things where you say something ridiculous as a joke for so long it stops being a joke and you are just the weird guy who says too da loo?

LOL, I knew a Scientologist that would do that every time. A friend of mine would say "Morning", and fake him out...
