One-Liner Wednesday – What a Tired Brain Can Get Up To


My best friend John and I were born one day apart – I’m a day older. This is a conversation we had this morning (after he got here for breakfast following a 12 hour shift, shunting transport trailers around a yard):

John: Do you realize next week we turn 51 and it’s 2015? The next time the numbers of our age and the year is inverted is 2026, when we’ll start off the year being 62.

Me: Do you realize you have waaaay too much time on your hands?

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Make it either funny or inspirational.

Have fun!

  13. Bwahahaha! Those night shunters – way too much time. I worked for Armour Transport at their head office in Moncton N.B. They have a huge yard there and have a fleet of night shunters on 6 nights a week.They were the butt of many jokes because – of course – no one ever saw what they did. They did work very hard (it is a critical, thankless, soul numbing job – especially in winter) but still the stories circulated. The best one I heard was from a day shift shunter. He reported that his young 5 year old son was playing with his toy trucks one evening in the living room of his home. When bed time came, the little guy’s Mom told him it was time and to make sure he picked up all his trucks, brushed his teeth and got into his pajamas. So, the young man went and brushed his teeth, and got into his jammies wthout complaining and came back down to say good night. As he was on his way back upstairs to go to bed, his Mom reminded him: “Don’t forget to put away all your trucks before you go upstairs.” The young man turned, looked over the trucks scattered all over the floor and said: ” F*ck it, let the night shift put them away, they don’t do f*ck all anyway.” and proceeded upstairs to the stunned silence. At this point the story teller said his wife turned on him and began to berate him for his attitude and language. To our laughter, he said he really didn’t understand why his wife was so upset at him and made him pick up all the toy trucks.

  17. Yes someone has too much time on their hands.


  18. A brave woman, telling us your age 😉 And that does sound like too much time on the hands.
