(Warning: It's an irritating test. For each question, you have to pick between two polar opposites, with no middle ground. Fortunately, they ask the same questions in a lot of different ways, so I suppose it evens out a bit.)

See What I Have To Put Up With?

Exhibit 1: The Girl came home from her second day at work and told us a story. There was a girl that worked with her, we'll call her Quartz. The Girl was warned that Quartz had a really bad attitude on the first day. Second day, The Girl goes to work and Quartz has been called in, an hour and a half late for her shift. Quartz wasn't feeling well. She was pissed that she had been called in to work and so she decided that she wasn't going to work. She left The Girl and one other worker alone on the line for dinner rush. This did not work. The line backed up, people were waiting for 30-45 minutes for their sandwiches and they were getting pissed.

So, The Girl--having never heard the axiom "Discretion is the better part of valor."--stuck her head in the back and told Quartz that they needed help and asked her if she planned on working at all that night. Quartz pitched a fit, cussed The Girl out and then called the manager to whine about how The Girl had cussed her out and /whine/"I don't feel good. I want to go home."/end whine/.

The manager came in, livid, sent Quartz home and yelled at The Girl and the other worker. Eventually, the manager apologized and The Girl explained her side of the story and it seems Quartz is out of a job.

At the end of her story, she said, "I can deal with a bad attitude. I can deal with someone who is loud. But what I can't deal with is someone being lazy. I just can't stand laziness."

Keith and I were dumbfounded and then...we laughed and laughed and laughed...



Exhibit 2: Yesterday, there was a mix-up with The Boy. He went swimming with a family across the street. While he was gone, Keith had to leave to go move his toolbox. He told The Girl that if he wasn't back before The Girl had to go to work, for her to stick her head in at the neighbor's house and let them know that I'd be home shortly and ask if The Boy could stay there. When work time came, The Girl saw that they weren't back yet so she went on to work and didn't say anything to anyone.

When they came home, The Boy said he'd be right back and came to the house. I was about 30 minutes from being home. The house was empty.

So, The Boy did what any kid would do.

He invited all his neighborhood friends into the house and they had a trash-the-place party.



Exhibit 3: About 45 minutes ago as of the writing of this post, Keith had to leave for work. He got dressed and was about to walk out when he said, "I need my belt." He went looking for it. He couldn't find it anywhere. He asked me if I could help him find it. He bent over.

I said, "Sure honey. You're wearing it."

He said, "You're going to blog this, aren't you?"

"You know it."

See what they have to put up with?

Kids Say The Funniest Things

The Boy is supposed to be cleaning his room this morning.

He begins speaking to me about negotiating this deal.

"Mom, can I do half now and half when I get back [from his friend's house]..."

"No."

"MOM! I was talking and you just said 'No' and I was just saying that I could do half now and half later. It's not bad, I just have to put my clothes away..."

"Don't forget the clean clothes you let fall behind your toybox."

"MOM! You did it again! That's why I want to do half now and half later! If I have to do all of it now, it will make it hard to be lazy!!"

/Mom laughs until she chokes/

I am Prince Herbert

Your result for The Monty Python Character Test...

Prince Herbert

You scored 70 Stubborn, 39 Crazy, 23 Agressive, and 47 Evil!






Apperance: The Holy Grail.



The lad trying to climb out of the window.



High Light: The rescue of Prince Herbert



Scene: The drawbridge of Swamp Castle. Two guards standing here looking very bored. Off in the distance, they see Launcelot running towards them waving his sword in the air. They look at each other, then back at Launcelot. They seem confused. He does not get any closer, though he he keeps running. The guards look at each other again. One taps his forehead. They lean on their pikes and idly watch Sir Launcelot still running towards them and getting nowhere. They look at each other. Suddenly Launcelot appears right next to them and runs them both through. They die, considerably surprised.



Launcelot runs through the castle, slicing, dicing, grating, mincing, and otherwise generally killing the entire populace. He fights his way up to the Tower through the throngs of bewildered wedding guests. He reached the Tower and throws open the door.




Guard 1: Hello! Urggh.

Guard 2: *Hic*

Launcelot: Milady, here kneels the humble Sir Launcelot of Camelot, Knight of the Round Table, and I stand ready to deliver you from-- Oh, I'm terribly sorry.

Prince Herbert: You got my note!

Launcelot: Well, I got *a* note...let's not jump to conclusions...

Prince Herbert: I *knew* some one would read it and rescue me! I've got a rope all ready! Let's climb down!

King: What's all this!?! Are you the one who killed all my guests?

Prince Herbert: He's come to rescue me!

King: Shut your noise, you. Well, what about it?

Launcelot: Well, I suppose I may have got...a bit... carried away with the moment...

King: Carried away?!? Look, whoever you are, you not only ruined my wedding reception, and caused me great mental anguish, but you killed the bride's father and kicked the bride in the chest! Now what sort of behavior is that??? Who are you, anyway?

Launcelot: Well, I am Sir Launcelot of King Arthur's Court, and I--
King: King Arthur?? King-of-England Arthur? And you're one of his Knights of the Round Table?

Prince Herbert: I'm ready, Sir Launcelot!

Launcelot: Well...yes...and I'm awfully sorry about the fuss...

King: Fuss? Nonsense!! Why, Sir Launcelot, consider yourself my honored guest, please! (quietly) Lots of land up by Camelot, eh?

Launcelot: Well, I'm terribly sorry about killing all those people...and kicking the bride...

Prince Herbert: Hurry, Sir Launcelot!

King: Don't worry about a thing, sir. Just come downstairs with me, will you? I want to introduce you to everyone.

Launcelot: Well, thank you....Thank you very much...

King: I won't be a minute, Sir Launcelot....

Prince Herbert:(from outside) Are you coming, Sir Launcelot?



Aaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!! (thump)



King: (liltingly) Coming, Sir Launcelot...



Sir Launcelot goes down the stairs. Upon recognizing him as the one who caused all the damage, the remaining guests shout such things as, "There he is!" and, "He's the one!" and, "Get him!" Launcelot draws his sword and goes beserk again.



King: Oh, bloody hell.

Launcelot is at last subdued before causing too much damage, save only kicking the bride again, and the King prepares to make a speech.


King: Ladies and gentlemen. This man whom you see beside me is my own honored friend, Sir Launcelot of Camelot. He has come all this way just to---

Guest: He killed the bride's father!!

King: Oh, come now! Let's not bicker and argue about 'oo killed 'oo! Sir Lancelot has come to celebrate with me the joyful occasion of my son's marriage to Princess Lucky. Unfortunately, my son Herbert has just fallen to his death from the Tall Tower. (gasps) But, I like to think of myself, not as having lost a son, but as having gained a daughter. For, since the father of the bride perished in most untimely circumstances....

Voice: He's not quite dead yet....


King: (thrown) Er...since her father has come so close to death as to be considered dead...

Voice: I think he's coming 'round!

King: Since her father, who, when it seemed he was just on the verge of recovery, suddenly felt the icy hand of death upon him...(thump)

Voice: He's kicked off!


King: Right...I should like the Princess to think of me as her own Dad. In the firm and legally binding sense. And, as this is meant to be a wedding day, I would like to welcome Sir Launcelot into my family, and give him the hand of my new daughter in earnest token of my esteem for him and his title.

Launcelot: Well, really, I must be going, I don't think--

King: Going? Nonsense! Why, how could you leave me at a time like this, so recently bereft of my only son?

Concorde: He's not quite dead yet! (general reaction)


King: Oh, bloody hell.

Voice: But, how on earth did you survive the fall from the Tall Tower?

Prince Herbert: Well, I'll tell you...

King: No! Wait! Stop that!

Guests: He's going to tell,

he's going to tell,

he's going to tell,

he's going to tell!

He's going to tell,

he's going to tell,

he's going to tell,

he's going to tell!

Concorde: Quick, sir, let's get out of here. This way.

Launcelot: No, no. I need something more...more...

Concorde: Dramatic, sir?

Launcelot: Dramatic! Right! This bell pull will do...

Launcelot: Err...could someone give me a push?
