Not the Steve-o

Random quotes, without context, recently spoken (or sang) in my presence:

I always prefer the Bob Dylan performances where he remembers to bring his consonants.

I bet she's got a nice little toaster oven.

I sleep good. I have one-two beers and sleep like monkey.

Oh, I like the usual girl things. Hop scotch, dress-up dolls. Getting my patch pounded every Friday night.

Incense peckermints la la la la. Incense peckermints la la la la.

I like to start my day with the newspaper and a bowl of bran flakes. Then I spend the rest of the day just hoping for a good BM.

Beauty is only skin deep. Ugly goes right to the bone.

Oh no! My moustache is on the floor and it's running away!

What a country eh? Where even the poor can be decadent.

Royal Meats? What kind of place is that? Ah, yes I'll have the Prince Andrew on toast please. But leave out the stringy bits.

Hi, this is Matt Leblanc reminding you to cover and cough. Don't let the godless Russians - I mean - flu virus - destroy the human race.

More fun things about being a security guard

1. Working with a crew who prefers to use nicknames rather than real names. My co-workers:

Big Bill
Little Bill
Big John
Little John

2. Conversations with clever teenagers, like this:

"How many did you give out today?"

"How many what?"


"I don't give out tickets."

"You don't give out parking tickets?"


"But you're security. What are you doing out here, then?"

"I'm making sure everyone is having a safe and happy day."

"Well - I'm not happy!"

"Okay. I'll put that in my report."

3. Attacks by the Phantom Dumper

Squad Leader was eating her salad while we followed the intruder via surveillance camera when the intruder suddenly dropped his pants, squatted on the sidewalk and... did... his... business.
The remaining salad went uneaten.
