“One of the dudes here said that his wife was going to be coming by and he wanted her to be able to get a key. I was like, yeah, if she has her ID I can just put her name on the room and it’s no problem. What’s her name? He said Nicole. I was like…does she just spell that N-I-C….O…and I look at him and he says, “……Um, N-I-Yeah…wait…well, no you got me thinking about it. Shit. I just call her Nikki so….um, huh. Yeah. I guess that’s fine.””—working in a hotel, part two

The officers approached the subjects. One of the subjects immediately got verbally aggressive towards the officers and threw his cane on the ground.

They found a victim who told them that a man had pressed the barrel of a gun to his forehead between his eyes and demanded his watch and wallet. The suspect was located by officers nearby and was positively identified by the victim. The fact that the firearm turned out to be a pellet gun did not console the victim. When a Robbery Inspector responded to the station to interview the arrestee, he just yelled, “I take the fifth!”.

I went for my teeth cleaning and left with a filling! The dentist was poking around in there cleaning up and noticed a huge hole in my farthest molar, said we should probably fix that, asked if I had time to do it today, I said, “Uh, sure,” and he called over his assistant. So he mentions, “I have to give you a shot, is that OK?” and I was like “Uh, shit” but it took like five seonds and it didn’t hurt at all. The whole thing was over in about 10 minutes and when I told the lady I didn’t know what my new insurance’s co-pay was she was like, “Ok, I’ll charge you the lowest amount then and call you later if we need more.” My dentist not only has a hilarious Geocities-style guestbook on his web site, he does a really good job at being a dentist.
“Most brilliant comment I heard today while having the inauguration on the lobby TV: “Yeah, well, we’ll see how long THIS president lasts…” Like, hey, shot in the dark, I’m gonna guess at least about 4 years.”—Justin
