Good morning crew,
Clean Laffs managed to save me a hundred-and-fifty bucks! You might remember me complaining about having to replace my truck battery a couple of weeks ago. Well, the bill finally came and I had it sitting on my desk here at the office yesterday.
I was going through the archive page when I came across an issue of Clean Laffs from two years ago where I was complaining about, believe it or not, truck repairs.
You can read that here if you're interested
In among the complaints I mentioned a new battery. Glancing at the bill sitting on my desk I started to think that, you know what, a $150 battery should probably last me a little longer than 20 months.
So I called the repair shop and asked them if the truck battery I bought two years ago came with a warranty. Sure enough it did, and they refunded me the product cost.
Odd that they wouldn't mention that themselves since they have a record of the repair work.
So I was feeling pretty good about myself, then this morning I was at the Dunking Doughnuts when the customer right in front of me walked out without collecting his change from the little cup on the automatic change dispenser. Meaning I got my coffee for about a buck.
This is turning out to be a pretty good week for me.
Laugh it up,

"President Trump last night announced the creation of a department called VOICE, which will deal specifically with crimes committed against Americans by immigrants. Not to be confused with 'The Voice,' which deals with crimes against music committed by teenagers." -Seth Meyers
"The tax deadline is about five weeks away. And this year, because of all the budget cuts at the IRS, the odds of getting audited are lower than they've been in 13 years. In other words, there has never been a better time to claim your Chihuahua as a dependent." -Jimmy Kimmel
Longtime friends were celebrating their 50th anniversary. One of their sons gave a loving toast, finishing with, "and thank you for having such a beautiful marriage."
"Thank you for making it necessary," the father joked.
In the silence that followed, his wife whispered, "Not him. He's the second son."

Mom and Dad were trying to console Susie, whose dog Skipper had recently died.
"You know," Mom said, "it's not so bad. Skipper's probably up in Heaven right now, having a grand old time with God."
Susie stopped crying and asked, "What would God want with a dead dog?"
