Have you ever gone to a mall around Christmas time? Well, apparently stalking is not illegal then. Whenever you start walking out to your car, you are always slowly trailed by at least one car. It doesn't matter how slowly you walk, they will follow you. What I like to do is, while my lovely wife is shopping, I put my car keys in my hand and wander aimlessly around the parking lot seeing how long cars will follow me until they give up.
There is a sign in the produce department of our local grocery store that says, "It's Fresh or It's Free". Oddly enough, I have never heard of anyone going thru the checkout with a basket full of rotten vegetables and saying that they didn't have to pay for them. If you are going to do that, why even bother going into the store? After all, you get the same deal if you just go straight to the dumpster.

|Mike's Thermos Mike didn't want to give up his prized thermos just because the handle broke. So, out came the duct tape and fixed not only the handle, but made Mike's thermos very easy to distinguish from the others at his office.

DUCK TAPE SAVED THE DAY!! - Kathy, Kearny, NJ

Just like these people did:
Plastic chair protector We have these old white chairs. They have the little plastic protectors on the bottom, and one day I noticed that one of the plastic protectors were gone! I quickly ran to the duct tape, and then to the recycling to get a plastic water bottle cap and then duct taped the cap onto the end of the chair! Duct tape saved the day (and our floors)! - Brian R.
Joe's Vest Repair Sigrid's dad, Joe, proudly sports his vest repair. Why throw away a perfectly good vest when it can attain a higher level of fashion with the addition of duct tape panels.
He reattached his foot with duct tape! I am a telemark skier (Norweigan for Slow Hippie). Last weekend I was skiing at A Basin here in Colorado. My first run down the hill I struck a rock with my right ski on a black diamond run. Much to my dismay I busted the foot off my prothesis. (I am a symes amputee - which is basically below the ankle - gone). I was able to work my way down to the base. While those not introduced to the mythical powers of duct tape would have quit after the first run I headed to the ski rental shop. There the fine folks gave me a roll. I proceed to wrap it around and up and down the broken foot and socket. I started out on the easy slopes but by the end of the day I was back on the blacks.
