I really appreciate people who do business honestly. We needed some tree and shrub trimming done (beyond the capability of me and my trusty Black & Decker electric trimmer). We called a business we've used several times for various household needs. The guy gave us an estimate and said we could probably get a better price from other businesses that just do lawn work. (His business offers a wider variety of services.) Thank you, sir, for your honesty.
From my introvert archives: I don't like people knocking on the door trying to sell things. Normally we try not to answer the door when someone's disobeying our "No Soliciting" sign and/or violating city ordinances. But if I do answer, I try to be polite. Usually. But one time a few years ago I must have been in a wiseguy mood when a solicitor rang the doorbell. I answered, and she said, "Hi, are you the man of the house?" In a sarcastic voice I said, "No, I'm the woman!" She didn't think it was funny.

--- 6 ---I play Words with Friends on my phone and have often wondered why the game sometimes accepts profane words and sometimes doesn't. No, I'm not actively seeking profanity. But when I'm getting my *** kicked and am desperate for points I'll try anything.

From an employer's email: "The cafeteria is closed due to unsafe conditions." Some emails just beg for a humorous response. Mine was, "They finally tested the food!"
