i think i understand drunk posting somewhat. i don't drink, but i shouldn't post when i'm bored at work in the middle of the night.

as far as being respectful to the op, what about the people who've taken the subject off topic? they deserve respect as well. so i frequently join in the off topic banter, then post "ok, back on topic..." and then post what the op was discussing. it's simple really, without having to pick bunched panties out of anywhere.
Yep, I generally do it much the same way. I'm not saying we shouldn't go off topic (lord knows I do it often enough!) but return to it as well.

And who says there were any panties to get picked out of anywhere?

Oh lordy, we would get booted out for sure wouldn't we? Between the raucous laughter and singing and the occasional yelling match there aren't many places that would have us. What's halfway between us? I'm very afraid it will be in the middle of the godforsaken wilderness of Saskatchewan or North Dakota somewhere.

Getting kicked out of North Dakota would be fine...

And I thought you knew how to cook! Chicken stock is very close to turkey stock, and EVERYONE knows what happens when you cook Brundlebum in turkey stock!

That sounds like my witches brew. Oh dear, I went off subject again. Sorry!

Yes, you do!

I carry one when I leave the house and it has saved me more than once!

Take some time to make up a list of contacts and put the numbers into the phone's memory. I have things like the towing company, cab dispatcher, apartment lockout number, etc...

I have been stranded a couple of times and one short call has solved the problem but, you have to do a little preparation.

My biggest problem is remembering to keep it charged.

If you are prepared you don't have to tell your son and his wife about your little mishaps just make sure they pay the bill!
