Here is Flashback Fridays Chapter 30, a weekly series of entertaining flashbacks of blog posts I’ve written over the past 20 years of blogging. It’s surreal to consider that I’ve been blogging for 20 years.

Using the Wayback Machine to select a few old posts that we believe would be interesting and humorous and post them each week in this Flashback Fridays series. So, let’s look at what was going through my mind all those years ago.

When I was younger, I was such a nerd. Please use your discretion when reading these posts because I used profanity a lot.

Let’s get to Flashback Fridays Chapter 30!

Friday! Friday! Friday! – Flashback Fridays Chapter 30

August 26th, 2005 by MacBros

Did I mention that it is Friday?

Well anyway, just in case anybody takes a look at the live cam and sees me. That is not a dot on my forehead, it’s a fracking pimple, and for some reason, it looks a lot worse than it does in real life. For some reason, my cam likes the red colour more than anything. So no I don’t have a push-start button on my forehead.

I just finished watching Bewitched. Why didn’t this flick make a better rating? I thought it was pretty good! I like Wil Farrel. If Red Eye does better than this one, people out there just don’t have any taste, or either that or that they never knew the original show. I’ll give it a thumbs up.

Rough day today, dealing with stupid customers that think they can get away with not paying their bill for three years and thinking they can slip under the radar by getting married and trying to get service and adding everything they can to the service, without little ol’ me using their SSN to say, “Hey! You owe us 1.5K, you pay that first and I’ll give you service!.”, then they get all pissed at me because I’m not stupid, or because they have problems with getting services they can’t afford and not ending up paying their bills.

Budgeting folks! I’m not saying I’m the best when it comes to saving money, but I know what I can and cannot afford. I wish I could record some of these calls so you all can hear just how stupid people can be and how rude they can get when they realize that their tactics don’t work, especially after they realize that the plan they had failed and they resort to the sympathy role by crying. I don’t know you, and your sob story doesn’t mean crap to me, because I’ve heard it all.

The usual order, call in and sound all happy and chipper, then get that stupid “I’m an idiot helmet on. I didn’t know that role going”, then if that didn’t work, let’s go for the violent role, damn! Still didn’t work, let’s start crying… Give me a break.

  1. happy
  2. stupidity
  3. denial
  4. angry
  5. begging

That’s a textbook call. never fails to amaze me.

I was sorta wondering if I was going to get another phone call asking me to fill in again, but since it’s kinda late in the evening for that to happen. I guess I’m not wanted anymore. :( I wonder If my friend Kevin wants to go out to do some karaoke. ( I still don’t know how to spell that.)
Or shall I be a good boy?


Oh boy, let me tell you a tale that’s as amusing as a circus monkey riding a unicycle! So, picture this: there are these folks who just can’t resist the temptation of racking up sky-high bills and getting their services cut off. But guess what? They never learn their lesson! They come back again, like a bad penny, hoping to fool the system. Ha!

But hey, that’s where I swoop in like a mischievous ghost ready to haunt their plans! They think they can outsmart me, but little do they know, I hold the power to send them straight to jail, no passing go, no collecting $200. It’s like a real-life game of Monopoly!

Back in the day, they had to provide their precious social security number or some fancy government ID, and guess what? The ghosts of their financial misdeeds would come back to haunt them! If they had unpaid debts from ancient times, oh boy, it was like waving a red flag to a bull!

And here’s the cherry on top, my friend: I know someone, a real smooth operator, who’s still playing this game today. But mark my spectral words, one day, Karma will catch up to them. Debt has a way of jumping out from the shadows, and when it does, it’ll have a grand old time giving them a taste of their own medicine. Oh, how I chuckle at the thought! Karma always finds a way, my friend, and it’s going to be a hilarious showdown. LOL!

Religion Vs Common Sence – Flashback Fridays Chapter 30

August 26th, 2005 by MacBros

There was an article that my friend Corey brought to my attention this week that I can’t seem to find.

UPDATE: It’s found here (Thanks Corey) But it was about the fact that workers on a construction site refused to wear hard hats because they thought it was within their right to follow their religious beliefs/right to wear turbans. This is a touchy topic so by this point you should know what I’m talking about.

They feel that they should be allowed to wear turbans on the construction site instead of a hard hat. I say don’t even bother to argue with this and let them! As Corey suggested, make them sign a waiver stating that the company they work for will not be held responsible for anything that may have been prevented by a hard hat. That way, the stupid ones can be weeded out.

By saying that, I’m not suggesting anything, what I’m saying is that if anybody wants to be as so stupid as to think a piece of cloth would protect their head from a violent strike deserves to be in a wooden box. Less in the gene pool if you know what I mean. And again, I mean stupidity in the gene pool.

That’s my opinion and you’re entitled to it.

This post was by no means meant to be racial, but if you think it was, put your turbin on and smack yourself in the head with a hammer.

Oh, the days when common sense was outbeaten by stupidity. Unfortunately, things have actually gotten worse.

I gotta hand it to them, they decided to go with a turban upgrade that could rival a freaking turtle’s shell! Talk about fashion-forward headgear. But seriously, who would’ve thought wrapping some cloth around your noggin would miraculously ward off construction site mishaps? Beats me, buddy! It’s like expecting a feather boa to double as a superpower cape. Mind-boggling, I tell ya! 🐢✨

I still say let them. The gene pool these days is way too saturated with stupidity.

Bad Ads – Flashback Fridays Chapter 30

August 26th, 2005 by MacBros

It’s been brought to my attention that there is an ad that is being displayed on my site that when clicked, will ask you to install it. DON’T! I have contacted my sponsor to have this stopped. Hopefully, this is something that they have overlooked and is a mistake. I’m sure they didn’t intend to let this type of bad advertising get through their tasteful and respectful contextual feed.


Ah, the good ol’ days of internet shenanigans! Let me take you back on a trip down memory lane. Ahem, picture this: I was caught in a sticky situation when I entrusted an ad company to monetize my website, only to discover that they had a sneaky ad that tempted innocent souls to download an EXE file. Can you believe it? People were so adorably gullible back then, clicking on anything that crossed their path.

But fear not, my friend! In this glorious era, we have fortresses of protection guarding our beloved Windows OS. So no more falling for those online traps and sending our computers into a frenzy. Huzzah for progress and the ability to laugh at our past internet misadventures!

karaoke time – Flashback Fridays Chapter 30

August 27th, 2005 by MacBros

Headed out to go do some karaoke with a couple of friends from work over at Ken & Barbs.
Yup, going to make an ass out of myself so everybody at work has something to talk about. Sucks having to be the jester of the workplace.


UPDATE Nothing happening there. So I ended up taking a nice walk all over town. DAMN!
UPDATE! UPDATE! Apparently after getting home, I passed out, now I’m waking up nice and early here, looked in the fridge and it’s full of beer still. So I’ll use them as nightcaps or save them for next Friday.

Ever experienced the sheer delight of opening your eyes to find a refrigerator stocked with an impressive assortment of frosty beers? It’s like winning the jackpot of breakfast options!

I’ve had my fair share of moments where I shamelessly unleashed my inner karaoke maestro. Those karaoke nights at the clubs? Absolute gold! Imagine belting out tunes like a rockstar, leaving embarrassment in the dust. Seriously, give it a whirl, shed those inhibitions, and embrace the hilarity that ensues! It’ll be a memory you won’t soon forget. Cheers! 🍻

Lipstick in Schools –Priceless – Flashback Fridays Chapter 30

August 31st, 2005 by MacBros

According to a news report, a certain school in Garden City, MI was recently faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the washroom.

That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every night, the maintenance man would remove them and the next day, the girls would put them back.

Finally, the principal decided that something had to be done. He called all the girls to the washroom and met them there with the maintenance man. He explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night.

To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, he asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required. He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it.

Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.

THE MORAL OF THIS STORY… There are teachers, and then there are Educators.

Ah, here’s a hilarious tale on the art of teaching kids about respect and consequences. If I were the custodian, you better believe I’d pull the same mischievous move. Those little rascals just had it coming, LOL!
