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."

  1. 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

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

  5. 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.

    1. It is true for many. It's their way of life. We all have choices. :)

    1. Many do get their education inside, but many just waste their life going in and out of that revolving door. :)

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

    1. No, the people that are miserable with those releases are the victims. California is a joke of a state. :)

    1. 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. :)

  13. Pretty sure he's luckier now than he was last week. ;)

    1. Some don't think that at all, Rosey. They become institutionalized and love living within those gloomy walls. :)

    1. 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. :)

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

    1. 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. :)

  18. Yeah, I paid for it all.
