Redneck Book of Manners

Tips From The Redneck Book Of Manners

General

1. Never take a beer to a job interview.

2. Always identify people in your yard before shooting at them.

3. It’s considered poor taste to take a cooler to church.

4. If you have to vacuum the bed, it is time to change the sheets.

5. Even if you’re completely certain that you are included in the will, it is still considered tacky to drive a U-Haul to the funeral home.

Dining Out

1. If drinking directly from the bottle, always hold it with your fingers covering the label.

2. Avoid throwing bones and food scraps on the floor as the restaurant may not have dogs.

3. Belching “to make room for dessert” is frowned upon.

Entertaining In Your Home

1. A centerpiece for the table should never be anything prepared by a taxidermist.

2. Do not allow the dog to eat at the table no matter how good his manners are.

3. Waking the children to come out so you can show guests “they ain’t got no birth defects” is impolite. (And bringing them out to show guests that they do have them is considered very rude.)

Personal Hygiene

1. While ears need to be cleaned regularly, this is a job that should be done in private using one’s own truck keys.

2. Proper use of toiletries can forestall bathing for several days. (However, if you live alone, deodorant is a waste of good money.)

3. Dirt and grease under the fingernails is a social no-no, as they tend to detract from a woman’s jewelry and alter the taste of finger foods.

Dating (Outside the Family)

1. Always offer to bait your date’s hook, especially on the first date.

2. Establish with her parents what time she is expected back. Some will say 10:00 p.m.; others might say ‘Monday.’ If the latter is the answer, it is the man’s responsibility to get her to school on time.

Weddings

1. Livestock, usually, is a poor choice for a wedding gift.

2. Kissing the bride for more than 5 seconds may get you shot.

3. Though uncomfortable, say ‘yes’ to socks and shoes for this special occasion.

Driving

1. When sending your date down the road with a gas can, it is impolite to ask her to also bring back beer.

2. Never relieve yourself from a moving vehicle, especially when driving.

3. Do not lay rubber while traveling in a funeral procession.

Ol’ Doc McTavish

Ol’ Doc McTavish

Ol’ Doc McTavish had a slow schedule, and a hankering to go golfing. But by the time he decided to go, his office assistant, Seamus, had already booked three appointments — right in the middle of the day. Doc McTavish came up with a plan.

“Seamus,” he said, “I can’t cancel the appointments, so I want you to see the three patients.”

“Yes, sir!” the always obedient Seamus replied.

The doctor has a great round of golf, and then rushes back to the office to see how things went.

“How did things go?” the anxious medic asks his assistant.

“The first patient had a headache, so I gave him Tylenol.”

“Bravo, and the second one?” asks the doctor.

“The second one had stomach burning and I gave him Maalox, sir,” says Seamus.

“Excellent! You’re good at this! And what about the third one?” he asks.

“Sir, I was sitting here and suddenly the door opened and a beautiful young woman burst through. Like a flame, she undressed herself, taking off everything, and she lay down on the table. She spread her legs and shouted: ‘HELP ME! For five years I have not seen any man!'”

“Fierce, Seamus!” said the astounded doctor. “What did ye do? for that one?”

“I gave her eye drops!”

The wisdom of our ancestors

The wisdom of our ancestors

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world,
I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice more often.
It is in this light I have decided to publish some of my random thoughts based on the views of our ancestors.

Tourists Complaints

Tourist Complaints

Since 1841, Britain’s Thomas Cook Tours has been leading travelers on new adventures. But not everyone ends up happy. There are supposedly true complaints registered with the travel agency.

1. “I think it should be explained in the brochure that the local convenience store does not sell proper biscuits like custard creams or ginger nuts.”

2. “It’s lazy of the local shopkeepers in Puerto Vallarta to close in the afternoons. I often needed to buy things during ‘siesta’ time — this should be banned.”

3. “On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don’t like spicy food.”

4. “We booked an excursion to a water park but no one told us we had to bring our own swimsuits and towels. We assumed it would be included in the price.”

5. A tourist at a top African game lodge overlooking a water hole, who spotted a visibly aroused elephant, complained that the sight of this rampant beast ruined his honeymoon by making him feel “inadequate”.

6. A woman threatened to call police after claiming that she’d been locked in by staff. When in fact, she had mistaken the “do not disturb” sign on the back of the door as a warning to remain in the room.

7. “The beach was too sandy. We had to clean everything when we returned to our room.”

8. “We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as white but it was more yellow.”

9. A guest at a Novotel in Australia complained his soup was too thick and strong. He was inadvertently slurping the gravy at the time.

10. “They should not allow topless sunbathing on the beach. It was very distracting for my husband who just wanted to relax. “

11. “We bought ‘Ray-Ban’ sunglasses for five Euros (£3.50) from a street trader, only to find out they were fake.”

12. “No one told us there would be fish in the water. The children were scared.”

13. “Although the brochure said that there was a fully equipped kitchen, there was no egg-slicer in the drawers.”

14. “We went on holiday to Spain and had a problem with the taxi drivers as they were all Spanish.”

15. “The roads were uneven and bumpy, so we could not read the local guide book during the bus ride to the resort. Because of this, we were unaware of many things that would have made our holiday more fun.”

16. “It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England. It took the Americans only three hours to get home. This seems unfair.”

17. “I compared the size of our one-bedroom suite to our friends’ three-bedroom and ours was significantly smaller.”

18. “The brochure stated: ‘No hairdressers at the resort.’ We’re trainee hairdressers and we think they knew and made us wait longer for service.”

19. “There were too many Spanish people there. The receptionist spoke Spanish, the food was Spanish. No one told us that there would be so many foreigners.”

20. “We had to line up outside to catch the boat and there was no air-conditioning.”

21. “It is your duty as a tour operator to advise us of noisy or unruly guests before we travel.”

22. “I was bitten by a mosquito. The brochure did not mention mosquitoes.”

23. “My fiancé and I requested twin-beds when we booked, but instead we were placed in a room with a king bed. We now hold you responsible and want to be reimbursed for the fact that I became pregnant. This would not have happened if you had put us in the room that we booked.”

Exercise More and Eat Less

Exercise More and Eat Better

Now that I’m over 70, the doctor wants me to come in for frequent checkups. I don’t know why, though: he always says the same thing. “You need to eat better and exercise more! Walking and swimming are especially good for you.” Worse, he wants me to cut out steak for fish and vegetables, and cut out beer for water.

That depressed me to no end. But I decided to think about it.

Well, I thought about it for hours, and here’s what I came up with.

If walking is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.

A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks lots of water — and “a whale” is what hugely fat people are called (by the insensitive boors, that is — not by me!)

A rabbit runs and hops and enjoys each day, and only eats vegetables — and a rabbit only lives for 15 years, tops.

But a tortoise doesn’t run around. It does practically nothing. Yet it lives for 450 years.

And he tells me to exercise and change my diet? I don’t think so! From now on, I’m not coming out of my house

The First aid Class

Her First Aid Class

“How come you’re late?” asked the bartender, as the cocktail waitress walked into the bar.

“It was awful,” she explained. “I was walking down Elm Street and there was a terrible accident. A man was thrown from his car and he was lying in the middle of the street. His leg was broken, his skull was fractured, and there was blood everywhere! Thank God I took that first-aid course!”

“Did you splint his broken leg?” the bartender asked.

“No….” the girl said.

“Did you wrap his head in gauze?” he asked.

“No….” the girl said.

“Did you dress his wounds?” he asked, starting to really wonder.

“No….” the girl said.

“Well, what did you do that you learned in your first-aid class?” he finally asked.

“I sat down and put my head between my knees to keep from fainting!”

Were my Ears Red

Were My Ears
Red!

With both ears very red, Sarah went to her
doctor.

The doctor asked her what had happened to her ears and she
answered, “I was ironing a shirt and the phone rang – but instead
of picking up the phone I accidentally picked up the iron and
stuck it to my ear.”

“Oh dear!” the doctor exclaimed in disbelief. “But what happened
to your other ear?”

“The idiot called back!”

The Joys of being a Senior Citizen

This is good…really good…The best!

 
Several days ago as I left a meeting at a hotel;
           I desperately gave myself a personal TSA pat down.
I was looking for my keys.  They were not in my pockets. 
A quick search in the meeting room revealed nothing.
Suddenly I realized I must have left them in the car. 
             Frantically, I headed for the parking lot.
My wife has scolded me many times for leaving the keys in the ignition.
My theory is the ignition is the best place not to lose them.
Her theory is that the car will be stolen.  As I burst through the door,
I came to a terrifying conclusion.
Her theory was right.  The parking lot was empty.
            I immediately called the police.  I gave them my location, 
confessed that I had left my keys in the car, and that it had been stolen.
Then I made the most difficult call of all, “Honey,” I stammered;
            > I always call her “honey” in times like these. <
“I left my keys in the car, and it has been stolen.”
 
There was a period of silence.
  I thought the call had been dropped, but then I heard her voice.
                        “Idiot”, she barked, “I dropped you off!” 
Now it was my time to be silent.
 Embarrassed, I said, “Well, come and get me.”   
She retorted, “I will, as soon as I convince this policeman I have not
                                                stolen your car.”
 

Yep, it’s the golden years

alcohol

In today’s world, many resort to abusing drugs and alcohol, why are so many becoming addicted and not only destroying their lives but the lives of others around them as well?

Joe

Joe

Joe, the CEO’s most trusted assistant, died
in his
sleep one night. The CEO had depended on Joe for
advice on every subject, from sending memos to
wardrobe decisions.

In addition, Joe had been his closest friend.
So, it
was understandable that the CEO didn’t take kindly
to the droves of ambitious job seekers who wanted
Joe’s job.

“They don’t even have the decency to wait
until the
man is buried,” the CEO muttered.

At the funeral, one eager beaver made his
way to the
CEO’s side. “Sir,” the man said, “is there a chance
that I could take Joe’s place?”

“Certainly,” the CEO replied. “But you’d
better hurry.
I think the undertaker is almost finished.”

Pirate’s Misfortunes

Pirate’s Misfortunes

 A pirate was talking to a “land-lubber” in a bar. The land-lubber noticed that, like any self-respecting pirate, this guy had a peg leg,a hook in place of one of his hands, and a patch over one eye. The land-lubber just had to find out how the pirate got in such bad shape.He asked the pirate, “How did you lose your leg?”

The pirate responded, “I lost me leg in a battle off the coast of Jamaica !” His new acquaintance was still curious so he asked, “What about you hand. Did you lose it at the same time?”

“No,” answered the pirate. “I lost it to the sharks off the Florida Keys .” Finally, the land-lubber asked, “I notice you also have an eye patch. How did you lose your eye?”

The pirate answered, “I was sleeping on a beach when a seagull flew over and crapped right in me eye.” The land-lubber asked: “How could a little seagull crap make you loose your eye?”

The pirate snapped, “It was the day after I got me hook!”
