Man, Mr. BnS's granma, God rest her soul... when I was a manager at Wally Mart, and she was still very healthy, she'd get the Wally Cart....
Which always bugged the heck outta me.
I'll never forget the first time she took it for a spin around the store... and we have one of those tiny, cramped, outdated, ghetto Wal Marts. Anyway. She gets the throttle stuck at WIDE OPEN in the lingerie section.... Bras and panties are flying into the air, she's out of control, has 'whiskey throttle' problems, comes out the other side of the area draped in garters and Pj's....
I will go to Hell for laughing at her at that moment... and every moment I think about it since.
From Urban Dictionary:
|whiskey throttle||127 up, 32 down|
Whiskey throttle is when you give to much throttle and you start to slip off the back of the bike/4 wheeler and your hand just pulls the throttle more and you go out of control!
Well, it was divinely funny.
One of my better memories working in that place. Mr. Sam must be rolling over in his grave with the way its ran now.
like you were saying, she didn't need it but used it all the time so maybe it was Karma playing a joke, or God, Or whatever you want to call it .
In a topic that got very quickly yanked by moderation...
Just wanted to point out that today is 12-12-12, and for some of you, in a few hours it will be 12:12:12 PM, 12-12-12 (or twelve twelves)
You 12-12-12 noobs slay me. 12-12-12 is nowhere near as awesome as 11-11-11 was. I mean, literally, 11-11-11 has much better symetry AS WELL AS symbolism. Even the time on that day when the clock hit "11:11;11" was much cooler than "12:12;12". That worthless developer, FatherTime Interactive, told us they were going to give us a real sequel to 11x3... instead we get this imbalanced gimmick.
At least, FTI could have waited and called it 12-21-12. That way, at least, it would have had some inference to the end of the world. JEESH!
