It would anger field lady in order because it was there's a lot and and he would be at the manic street -- if he could barrel her. He would pick out the code. She tracked him well -- out -- on my body yet and I'll probably get bad every Christmas. While that's it that's great that he would take that kind of ever it is great that the manager.

Yeah when somebody gives yet that does this kind of get TO. When somebody gives you an article of clothing I think this is a guy thing because it's definitely is -- it would me okay. Even though I may like it. Even I'm I like the color of it I'm like the style that's probably some don't know where they always wanted to try it on right then. And I was put off trying on things I really do us that now dumb policy I'll buy a few hours for a dry run after dinner. And then after general fall asleep. You know watching football playoffs. And stuff like that then I'll sneak up to the closet and hopefully they forgot to ask me to drive on again. I have things in my closet now. They have tags on them for five years ago. OK it's just the way it is and where something in salute literally disintegrates. The last thread holding the sleeve on violence as we've got a good bye that was his sleeve that I have to toss. But if you get me something to Wear and US -- to try and gone to see how it looks. Not gonna happen I can just I hear you like that. While luckily people don't ask me to try to -- okay fortunate that they just give it to you -- -- to be the hope that it's in yeah -- -- run fine on -- and let them -- and that big long heavy. -- -- going to be a trial on July. About Ukraine is that you you're big on trying things. Right away I hate doing in my wife is its army Finnessey buys and they I don't. I'm like you all stick it in the closet got power -- one where -- I don't want you know and it's just putting this year down or the pants whatever it is just a -- do -- it's a hassle that's. Good point and I think I know work comes from. With me anyway here and here is -- may well and I was a kid. My idea who Eric. August the end of August were still hot. My mother and pardon me would take me. To get my -- school close in my school clothes were a couple of shirts and and a pair of pants I was there okay. And I had to take good care of them could then the last -- school here. -- the pants were always well -- the warrant wool pants. In August. Personally you walk around like oh like a Frankenstein. It was stiff legged because the wall kind of pics that your -- and you know it is not comfortable I hated them and I'd go to school. Of this is before blends. You know so I'd go to school when I -- my legs out like this and could hardly wait to get home and change quote out of my good close. And output on you know jeans or something like that. So that's probably why I hate wearing clothes that are just it felt like that. But that was that that's the way it works now there are more more comfortable fabrics. You know cotton is the forever alive did you know that. I'd break into song every time -- Think of how many sheep had to be -- for these fans just don't look at guys. We'll take a break over backward more with -- and company news Michael Jordan would he thinks he's. At 930. A were asking about shopping -- hagel. You can haggle prices we know we could have let the car dealer we know it of the flea market of a garage sale or whatever but Hulu. Except people season shoppers it's -- angle. With a lot of stores but you can. They were asking if you do that also do you have any horror stories regarding coupons. You're so excited until you find out of the exact item you wanted is not covered by that coupon. Which you thought it would be you but it's not because it's a door buster look at the small print no door busters. You re gift you get a gift that's inappropriate or want that you give to someone else. Technically is falling on the wrong with that it's just you know -- cotton. -- I of that. Because I got caught once I don't -- gift and I do not re gift. -- when I was programming WWW. The record companies at Christmas time would would give you a good bottle of wine. Or -- bottle of liquor. That's traditional -- what they'll do OK I don't drink. So what I would do is I bring them home. My wife and drinking water so we put him in a closet qualities and and win I would show us some of these bottles the people who did -- 10 that's really nice you're gonna love that I -- yard sale and put it -- -- right. OK so we had this closet full of blows and very good booze and good stuff I don't know one from another -- honestly. But it was good stuff according to everybody else. So once we got a gift that was unexpected. Some people drop by to visit and gave us an unexpected gift. In Seoul. I'm doing my quick thinking I'm I'm on my god I'm getting a gift from these people we're getting a gift we don't have anything for them we didn't even think we're gonna exchange them. -- go to a clause. And I get the bottle that everybody went. Lou. I'm thinking this is gonna impress OK so after they gave us again that's I went I went through the closet I got a bottle. And I it's in a box of very you can tell it's class all the way from the blocks. On the -- So I give them the bottle -- -- and the box and there's 101. Look at us now they're so excited they opened the box. Which is summing I should've gone because when they opened the box. On attached to the bottle inside the box. It says Mary Christmas sandy beach from Warner Bros. records. Okay. Okay okay. I was mortified. Let me tell you this because I'm not a cheap guy and I don't -- -- Iowa is. And if there was a hole in the is in the floor -- crawl through it. They like the book and I try to more market way out of it but I don't Leo is very good. And and so that's why MS -- re gift.

Because my -- is an organ from BC I wish some decent clothes went and bought a three -- -- A really nice clothes they measured that kind of stuff but whatever. And it was on the car.
