chapped his ass?

When I worked at the chemical plant, I saw a guy get fired when he was caught stealing toilet paper. It was a sad story, too. The guy had a good job, made good wages and had more than 25 years of service with the company. But he flushed it all down the crapper by stealing six rolls of generic toilet paper, the John Wayne kind, y'know: rough, tough and takes no shit off nobody. It was so bad that it should have been issued as punishment in progressive discipline cases. I always wondered why somebody would risk losing a good job over something so cheap and trivial.

Maybe he stole the toilet paper because he was worried about getting killed.

A man accused of fatally beating his roommate with a sledgehammer and a claw hammer because there was no toilet paper in their home has been arrested.

Bejus! Think about what a good television commercial that story would make. "You'd better buy Charmin next trip to the store--- or you just may wind up with your blood on the floor."

Something like that, with Mr. Whipple brandishing a sledgehammer.


I knew a young guy who couldn't pay for his wife to deliver their baby, so the taxpayers picked up the tab to the tune of about $20,000.00 for a preemie with complications. After every hospital visit, he was bringing home boxes of examination gloves from the nurses carts. I asked his wife why he was doing that. She said he felt the government 'owed' him, so he was taking them everyday. Strange how the human mind can work sometimes.

....and....rough toilet paper? Roughest toilet paper I've seen in the world was on a trip to Munich. It's equivalent to our industrial paper towels.

The guy went batshit after his roomie picked up the rifle during the argument. That's pretty ballsy, going after a guy with a rifle when all you have to work with is a hammer. Or maybe that's stupid, you pick.

I once fire a guy for stealing a shovel. When I asked why he had done it he told me he had gotten away with the other three he had stolen and just wanted to see how many he could take before he got caught.
