When God takes a vacation He lets the media be in charge.  Why?  Because like God the media sees everything, knows everything and like God, they keep your secrets.

QUESTIONS

Does the Dart Board Leaque still gather at Cactus Jacks on Taylor Blvd to throw darts? 

Is Shively considered a part of Dixie Highway even though it is a city? 

Where can you order a large grilled chicken salad on Dixie Highway?  Hooters has one of the best grilled chicken salads in Louisville.  Large chunks of tasty grilled chicken are in each salad. 

Did You Hear About This?

Diner reports server goes nuts at local restaurant in a Southwest Jefferson County.   Elderly couple asked the server for the corn bread the server forgot to bring.  The server became agitated and started screaming at the elderly couple.  The server continued to shout and scream. All the diners stopped eating to watch the action.  When the server stopped screaming, she started serving food to the other diners.  The elderly woman was in tears and the elderly man was shaken by this experience.  Management did not address the problem or speak with the elderly couple.  Other diners assisted the elderly couple to their car when they were ready to exit the restaurant. 

Another Dining Shocker 

A man and a woman enter a Mexican Restaurant and are greeted by the male host.  The man asked the host "Do you serve white people here"?  A strange look fell over the host face and then he smiled.   "Absolutely" said the host. As he escorted the couple to the table he said with a smile, "but we charge them extra"  Turns out the host and the man were friends and  belonged to the same church.  Lavity, among friends, politically correct or not is normal.


 

 

FUN AND COMMENTS

Dixie Highway News Encourages Businesses

In tough times like these, even the most honest businessman or businesswoman can be tempted to cut corners, in their ethics, in order to win business to feed their families.  I think most small business owners are basically honest and have high moral character.  But, this is not always true.  Here is an example: 
 
A couple of years ago I asked a funeral director how may cremation services was performed in their funeral home.  He said, "Oh, that's just for those poor people who have not planned well and can not afford to have a real funeral for their family.  We try to avoid these people and direct them elsewhere".  I was saddened by his comment.  His funeral business was highly respected in the community and his customers would be shocked by what he said.   We continued to talk and I asked him if he was satisfied with how his business was performing.  A grin ran across his face as I asked my question and it turned into a smile as he seemed to look at the wall over the top of my head. He said, "it has been a very good year for us".
 
We were also discussing creating an AD campaign in my magazines and he said, "I will give you an Ad for your little magazine".  But, I responded, "It seems you are doing just fine without our magazine advertising". 
 
We concluded our meeting and he left the room before me. As I turned around to leave the room, I notice a chart on the wall that had been behind me as I taked with the funeral director.  The chart displayed 27 funerals and the amount of revenue each one generated.  No wonder he was smiling.  His unfortunate comment made it appear that he loved money more than people.  He might not have made this statement if he had known my wife was cremated.  
 
My wife fought cancer for many years.  It had destroyed her beauty and she had no quality of life toward the end.  She did not want a funeral.  She did not want an obituary published.  As soon as she passed she wanted her body transported to the crematory and burned.  Her wishes were honored. 
 
Pick any industry and I can tell you a similar story about highly respected people who behind the scenes talk about their customers with disrespect but take their money with a big "trust me" smile.  I do not look for this.  But, I have worked with thousands of business owners over the past 40 years and the law of averages reveals the stinkers eventually. 
 
But, let this be known; the funeral directors of this state are people of the highest quailty and character one can find in any community.  And to be as fair as possible, the funeral director who said these words I shared with you probably spoke in a clumsy way and would have made his statements differently if he had taken more time to formulate his thoughts.  I am not trying to verbally beat up or pick on anyone.  What I am saying to myself and to others is this, "We all have to be extra careful during these tough times not to surrender our character on the altar of money".

LIFE IS NOT ALWAYS FAIR

OK DIXIE HIGHWAY  IT'S TIME TO GET SERIOUS
A man walks into a bar carrying jumper cables.  The bar tender says, "Hey Pal don't start anything in here." 
 
A grasshopper walks into the bar and the bartender say, "We have a drink named after you."  The grasshopper replies, " My names Freddy. You really have a drink named Freddy?"
 
Did you hear the story about the blonde waitress at her first day at work.  Well, a trucker came into a truck stop cafe and placed his order.  He said, I want three flat tires, a parir of headlights and a pair of running boards.
 
The brand new blonde waitress, not wanting to appear stupid, went to the kitchen and said to the cook.  "This guy out there just ordered three flat tires, a pair of headlights and a pair of running Boards.  What does he think this place is, an auto parts store?"  "No" he cook said,  "Three flat tires mean three pancakes, a pair of headlights is two eggs sunny side up, and running boards are 2 slices of crisp bacon."
 
"Oh, OK!" said the blonde.  She thought about it for a moment and then spooned up a bowl of beans and gave it to the customer.  The trucker asked, "What are the beans for, Blondie?"   She replied, "I thought while you were waiting for the flat tires, headlights and running boards, you might as well gas upu!"
