I live in the sticks

So football practice started last night and and at some point half the boys (5 &6 yr olds) all have to go pee. You know they don't, but at that age it seems to be a group thing.
So anyway I overhear a couple of moms talking and I kid you not this is what I hear "I don't know why they have to go all the way over to the other building. I just tell mine to go find a tree." "Yeah, it's like go on over there beside the building. Nobody's looking."

WHAT? Ok, I understand if it's an emergency and there is no place else to go, but come on ladies, there is a bathroom available teach the poor kid to use it.
Every team was out on the field practicing and she's like "use a tree". That's just nasty. (Maybe I'm a snob, don't know, but gross-too many people for that sort of thing.)

I should not have been surprised however because when we first moved in, our neighbor's son was potty training and she let him pee off the back porch. WE LIVE ON A MAIN ROAD. There's no privacy fence, the back porch is a concrete slab for all to see. The kicker? He does it because daddy does. What? I made sure to never look towards their house when I knew he was home. God only knows what I would have seen. Thankfully they moved. But I wonder how their "city" neighbors took to their back porch habits. LOL

Saturday Stupid Signs

Now this sign some people would agree with. But normally they don't advertise so nicely.

If you're driving down the road and suddenly this 6 or 7 foot tall animal that weighs like 600 pounds is in the road are you really going to NOT SEE IT? If you don't see it then maybe you should have stayed at the bar and slept it off.

The Beauty of Television

I saw a new weightloss commercial the other day. You've seen the one with the animated lady and her husband? They both quit drinking sodas, he shrinks to almost nothing and she actually balloons larger.

I saw a new pencil drawing for a new product. It's just a lady talking about how this new drink supplement helped her lose weight. Get this at the bottom of the screen is this disclaimer.

"Cartoon weight loss not actual results. Real people require diet and exercise to lose weight."

WHAT THE @%$#?

I know that some advertising is misleading but to out and out lie? OMG! What is wrong with people these days? Is there no limit as to at least a sliver of truth is advertising a product?
