I would not do that unless they became a fire or health hazard.That one is not on the menu.

Finding what some place is buying them for might entice him

Craigslist
They are standard 4 drawer file cabinets, roughly 5 feet tall. They cannot be mailed or shipped easily. I do not want everyone and his scuzzy uncle traipsing up my driveway checking out teh security system.

He got them in there. He'll get them out... with a little/lotta help from his (ahem) friends

I love that he used the word "huck."

Thank you, Captain Obvious.

Ha!

You should be like "Wow, weird. I was *just* wondering how you and your fetus were doing on your diaper supply! Thanks for the update! I'll sleep better tonight."

Not really. I'm not really an ass on Facebook, ever. But I think it. Oh, man, do I think it.

Speaking of diapers, once in awhile I watch Ridiculousness -- which is basically funny YouTube videos. Basically stupid people doing stupid things.

One prank that was a good one (but you need an infant and a friend/relative with a weak stomach to baby poop). Fill a diaper with chocolate pudding and pretend you are changing a real smelly, poopie diaper. The guy smeared it on his friend who can't take any kind of poop. Hilarious. And I usually don't like poop jokes.

The videos of new parents with hair trigger gag reflexes, changing their baby's first diaper are always funny, too.

Saw one of a guy who put peanut butter down the back of his shorts, went to a crowded area, put his hand down the back of his pants to scratch his butt, came out with PB on his hands and ate it. People reacted negatively.

Really? I wonder why.

That's funny. Gross but funny. The peanut butter was still on his butt.

Have you ever watched Jackass and seen what those guys will endure to amuse themselves? A little peanut butter on your butt is nothing.

Okay, so the junk hauling and construction seemed amusing this morning. Now that it's almost 5, I'm really over it need a freaking drink. My friend A is apparently having the same kind of day so we just made plans to decompress together.

It'll backfire on them big time. People just won't make a reservation and will go elsewhere.

It appears they are doing a good enough business that they can afford to call people out so I have no problem with it. No one likes it when someone makes an appointment with you and is a no-show. I don't see why restaurants should be any different.

ITA. It's because of people like those "diners" that I can't get reservations at quite a few places. I'd even be willing to pay a deposit on my credit card, which I would forfeit if we didn't show up.

While I am not endorsing last munute cancellations, I can't imagine that this "shaming" would affect me at all. Unless tons of your associates follow this restaurant on twitter, is anyone that matters actually going to see it? I know very few peeople that are even on twitter and even fewer who are following restaurants. So some place I cancelled on is posting my name. Oh no. How will I live down the shame?
