Sanding our assholes with 150 grit.

Do they make cough medicine addictive on purpose?

Case #1: Vics cherry flavor cough drops. I remember finishing up 3 boxes in one day! After the 1st 2 to relieve my cough, I was poppin them back like there was no tommorow

Case #2: Nyquill (spelling?). After I used this for the 1st couple nights to relieve my symptoms and to put me to sleep, I find that once in awhile, I'll take it like a sleeping pill.

You're around forty years behind the times, cough medicine used to have things like morphine in it, ahhh Collis Brown...

I dated a girl for awhile that seemed to gobble robitussin caplets like tic tacs.

Some people seem to be much more susceptible to addictions of all kinds than others. She was also partial to Xanex and Oxycontin.

Are you by any chance an alcoholic? Do you use any other substances?

I was at a Sav-On's to buy Nyquil and there was a buy one get one free sale. So I said, okay. I went to the counter and here's the exchange:
Them: "Sir, our register won't process the Nyquil because there's a limit on how much you can buy because the amount of drugs in there"
Me: "It's buy one get one free, and your only allowed to buy one???"
Them: "I suppose so, kinda weird no?"
Me: "Year weird, especially because Nyquil is a drug.. I mean it would just be buying an overpriced nasty tasting gatorade otherwise right?"
Them: "I guess so.. well just take the both, I'll ring you up on one.. and since the other one is free anyway... just take it"
Me: "Cool"
Me: "I'll be back in five to buy 50 packs of sudafed"
Them: "Huh?"
Me: "Nevermind"

I just thought that I'd casually mention that the OP is Joseph.

Muppet, you should only "out" anonymous posters if they're trying to impersonate other posters. MAYBE you can 'out' them if they're being deliberately provocotive -- but that's a judgement call.

Definitely 'out' them if they're playing two people arguing with each other -- that stuff just sucks.

Allan -

I wouldn't 'out' pretty much anybody but Joseph the poo man. :) I certainly wouldn't 'out' anybody who was posting about conditions at work, or anything like that. That'd be seriously uncool.

Rightous answer, dude. Thanks. I'd forgotten Joseph was the Poo man.
