Tuesday Talk

1.There is persistent chatter about the working conditions in the sweat shops. Now we are hearing about staph-related illnesses. It is well known that these infections are contagious, so dirty headphones and filthy keyboards are real threats to people's health.

2.It is amazing how much abuse a person can endure. Take this wife who was roundly abused by her husband in a public restaurant. Even as he let loose a volley of choice fabric, she calmly ate her lunch and never said a word. She was pitied by everyone.

3.Sibling rivalry reached unimaginable heights last week. One sister got a spanking new car and she is not even the more popular of the two. So Miss Social Darling is refusing to drive her old model. Poor retired husband must now pull off a stunt at the former workplace.
