The yellow diamond warning traffic sign gives no advance notice as to the rumble strips that are in the road ahead. In fact, the rumble strips technically begin prior to the sign.

Favorite answer by Jim F.: “If ‘ahead’ is measured in inches….”

Favorite comment by Gary Steiger – FreeFrequentFlyerMiles.com: “I wonder which resident of the graveyard is still receiving mail.”

The rooms certainly look like they have been “renovated” at this motel in Jackson in Mississippi — to the point where they seem to include free air conditioning in addition to the low daily rates, weekley & monthly specials, and free cable & wifi.

Favorite answer by Jason: “Hmm… Weekly is spelled wrong. And they have ‘cable’ yet a satellite dish?”

Favorite comment by Mark H: “No free breakfast? I guess you only get that at Holiday Motel Express.”

The beginning of a response to an employment application from United Parcel Service instructs to “Please respond to this email with your portfolio and resume attached, along with your responses to the following” — but the last line of the response asks to “Please do not reply to this email.”


Favorite answer and comment by derek: “There is conflicting information to reply and not reply to the email. In reality, maybe the sending email address does not receive replies but another HR email does receive email and may respond.

“The press is reporting that the new UPS contract will compensate drivers at $170,000 per year by the end of the 5 year period. This represents $120,000 in pay and $50,000 in benefits. $170,000 is more than some doctors on the West Coast working for Kaiser Permanente earn. Doctors often are not able to work until 14-20 years after high school and, in many cases, accumulate huge amounts of student loan debt. In contrast, UPS drivers might be $3.7 million ahead by the time a doctor that takes 20 years of education and training to start working (based on 20 x $170k + 300k in student loans)”

…so how much does one save at this Sleep Inn hotel property? $$34?-2525? A telephone call? 25 or 6 to 4? A night’s sleep?!?

Favorite answer by gary rind: “save $2525? I don’t think you could save that much even if you rented every room in the hotel!”

Favorite comment by DaninMCI: “I don’t get it ??? But I guess I should be thankful they didn’t include the area code.”
