Silly Sunday

Silly Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs. The rules are simple, just have fun.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process. Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!

I Had It All:

I talked to a to a homeless man this morning and asked him how he ended up this way.

He said, “Up until last week, I still had it all. I had plenty to eat, my clothes were washed and pressed, I had a roof over my head, I had HDTV and Internet, and I went to the gym, the pool, and the library. I was working on my MBA on-line. I had no bills and no debt. I even had full medical coverage.”

I felt sorry for him, so I asked, “What happened? Drugs? Alcohol? Divorce?”

“Oh no, nothing like that,” he said. “No, no…. I was paroled.”

    Funny and yet sadly true. I wonder how long before he goes back.
    I personally don't like the dress code. Orange isn't my color

      Not long, the return rate is pretty high for these lost souls. Many enjoy being taken care of especially in the winter months. πŸ™‚

    LMAO seems he will be trying his hardest to get back breach his parole

    • April 30, 2017 at 10:52 am

      It won't take long. You have a kuxuriouslytastic SS too, Steve. πŸ™‚

    • April 30, 2017 at 10:53 am

      I'm having a most delightful weekend, Linda. πŸ™‚

    Heeheehee! The amenities may be nice, but i'm not sure i'd like the neighbors. Have a blessed and beautiful Sunday!

    • April 30, 2017 at 10:53 am

      Some of the neighbors are awful to say the least. You have a blessed and beautiful Sunday too, Mimi. πŸ™‚

    That is probably too true. Free living in that jail but I think I would rather be poor. Well done Sandee. Sandee, you and Zane have a really good day.

    • April 30, 2017 at 10:54 am

      I'd rather be poor too. I spend 25 years living inside a jail. I had the keys though. πŸ™‚

  6. April 30, 2017 at 6:02 am

    Funny, but sadly it is probably true.

    • April 30, 2017 at 10:54 am

      It is true for many. It's their way of life. We all have choices. πŸ™‚

    He should rob a bank and go back to finish his MBA.

    • April 30, 2017 at 10:55 am

      Many do get their education inside, but many just waste their life going in and out of that revolving door. πŸ™‚

  8. April 30, 2017 at 6:26 am

    Ironically true situation.
    Have a great day!

    • April 30, 2017 at 10:55 am

      It sure is, my friend. πŸ™‚

    Perhaps we all should thank governor Moonbeam for releasing all those convicts and making life so miserable for them.

    • April 30, 2017 at 10:56 am

      No, the people that are miserable with those releases are the victims. California is a joke of a state. πŸ™‚

  10. April 30, 2017 at 6:45 am

    Yikes! Did not see that coming! Hope you and Zane are having a lovely weekend

    • April 30, 2017 at 10:56 am

      We're having a lovely anniversary weekend. Love you. Big hug to you and Russell and lots of scritches for Miss Lucy. πŸ™‚

    Obviously, he hadn't received his EBT card yet.

    • April 30, 2017 at 10:57 am

      I'm not sure about that. They have a way of getting their handouts very quickly. πŸ™‚

  12. April 30, 2017 at 7:55 am

    Thats silly but more like the truth lol well all day yesterday I thought it was sunday goofy me

    • April 30, 2017 at 10:58 am

      More like the truth indeed. I've seen many of these folks over the years. A wasted life for the most part.

      It's okay if you thought it was Sunday yesterday. We're retired and it can be any day we want it to be. πŸ™‚

  13. April 30, 2017 at 8:52 am

    Pretty sure he's luckier now than he was last week. πŸ˜‰

    • April 30, 2017 at 10:58 am

      Some don't think that at all, Rosey. They become institutionalized and love living within those gloomy walls. πŸ™‚

  14. April 30, 2017 at 8:55 am

    That would do it.

    • April 30, 2017 at 10:59 am

      And it does it to more than we know, Odie. πŸ™‚

    We can all agree that this is too true to be an actual joke.

    • April 30, 2017 at 11:31 am

      We can all agree on that, but I didn't see this coming. I love those kinds of stories/jokes. πŸ™‚

  16. April 30, 2017 at 12:10 pm

    I remember one inmate at the Jail where I worked,he said and I Quote "I know why I am back here and where I will be going back to when it is all said and done" he was a lifer back for a trial on a different case. πŸ™

    • April 30, 2017 at 12:25 pm

      Yep, there are a lot of those. We saw many during the years we worked. It's all they know. They took what they think is the easy way. πŸ™‚

  17. April 30, 2017 at 1:06 pm

    No wonder a lot of the paroles go back in. It must be easier than the real world.

    • April 30, 2017 at 1:41 pm

      For many it is easier. They get to like the institution and then they don't know what to do when they are on their own. πŸ™‚

  18. April 30, 2017 at 4:27 pm

    Yeah, I paid for it all.

    • May 1, 2017 at 6:05 am

      Me too, Timothy, me too. πŸ™‚

  19. April 30, 2017 at 10:48 pm

    Uhm…sad? Haha. That's a twist I wasn't expecting though.

    • May 1, 2017 at 6:05 am

      I wasn't either, but there it was. πŸ™‚

  20. May 1, 2017 at 11:45 am

    He'll probably go back.

    • May 1, 2017 at 12:16 pm

      No doubt about that, Binky. πŸ™‚

  21. May 2, 2017 at 9:02 am

    Hi Sandee, that just about says it all and you can't help but laugh (in a crazed, hysterical manner).

    xx

    • May 2, 2017 at 9:07 am

      Yep, there is a lot of this going on right here in crazy California. πŸ™‚
