Totally agree. Sometimes I am getting my laundry done, getting my car washed AND grocery shopping all at the same time. That's powerful. I don't get the people who sit there in the landronat the whole time. Are they afraid someone is going to steal their used clothes?

Whatever you say to this person, follow it up with "tough guy"

This takes guys back so much, their whole demeanor will change. Its hilarious and they are so thrown off by it, they never do anything about it.

Guy standing in your way at the bar? Touch his shoulder as you slide past.... "excuse me, tough guy"

Excuse me, is my order ready yet? we havent called you yet - "Ok, well its been 20 minutes, can you check on that for me, tough guy?"

Say it with confidence and guys will feel like their ego was popped. Also even more hilarious when girls are around because they seem to find it hysterical.
you're a ***

I have heard that some systems respond to double-0 but not single-0. maybe not. What's really annoying are the ones that make you listen to 6 options, including reading a webiste name and very deliberately pronouncing every syllable in 'www'--only to find out you have to hit 7 to talk to a live person.

Re: OOT Life Tricks

The worst ones are places where they really really don't want to field your phone calls so they have a pre-recorded message that you must listen to in its entirety explaining the procedures you should take for any of a dozen different reasons you might be calling, then finally after you sit there for 5 minutes listening to it you finally are presented with the menu.

Re: OOT Life Tricks

On the systems where you have to talk instead of punch numbers I've heard that swearing can get you through. Haven't tested it though.

Re: OOT Life Tricks

Garlic/Garlic Oil capsules will get rid of warts (not genital warts afaik sorry guys)

I went to a dermatologist for a wart freezing on my hand, after several visits it wasn't going away. I read about the garlic thing, rubbed on the oil from inside the garlic oil pill once a day, gone in a week. (I recommend wrapping it in something as the area will smell like garlic).

Also, for anyone that lives in an urban area, it's a good idea to keep a roll of quarters in your car for parking meters.

I just stop by the bank and pick up a $10 roll. This keeps me from frantically scrambling for change any time I need to park.

Re: OOT Life Tricks

If you make sammiches with slices of cheese, use the slices of cheese to spread the condiments on the bread. One less knife to clean and your life is made simpler.

Move to a city with real parking meters. Seriously, quarters still?

Washington, DC.

Certain areas in Northern Virginia and DC have the newer meters where you can use a credit card and print out a slip, but they are still the minority.

Philly still uses quarters, too...I think NYC does, as well, but I haven't meter parked there in a while.
