I didn’t get to this yesterday, but I need to pull out the soap box for one of my dumb rants. Today’s topic…”Know It Alls”! These are some of my least favorite people. You would think that if you are a “know it all”, you would KNOW when you are annoying, but that is not the case! The most frustrating part about “know it alls” is that typically they don’t even KNOW what they are talking about. I have to examples of why this is my topic for today’s blog…and it stems from two texts I got yesterday at 7-7-9-9-9. First off, I love the text feature on our show…99% of the time the texters crack me up with their often wrong sense of humor. But at least once a day I will get a text from someone that thinks that they know what they are talking about, and they act like an ass in how they “correct” you…and it turns out they were wrong.
Example #1 stems from yesterday's Beat The Producer where the Rev asked me where Auschwitz is located…
Example #2 stems from that news report in Burien where a 14 year old girl was shot in a drive by....
Gotta love "know it alls".

What do you do to waste time at work? What have you seen others do at work to waste time? Here are some of the texts we got:
I spent over an hour a day trying to get through the phone lines at KISW!
Biggest time waster at work: Pooping. I waste an hour a day at work going to the bathroom. Maybe I should ease off of the coffee. - The Tax Man

Smoking breaks every hour! Angela
I'm pretty sure my co-worker yanks his crank in the bathroom, i knocked on the door and he answered in a panicked, high pitched voice...
I have my work believing, that I have IBS, so I get to spend a lot of time in the bathroom, reading news, playing games, and on Facebook on my phone.
What I see: girls doing their hai (curling iron, flat iron, etc...), reading books, having their spouse visit daily, smoke breaks every hour, water cooler time every hour...
I waste time at work photoshopping coworkers face pics onto random gay porn scene pics. makes for a lot of laughs
I waste time at work listening to KISW things like beat the producer .who's iPod is it anyway .listeners on the loose . I'm a garbage man so I can't get out of my truck until I hear what's going on .
A new study found that 9 out of 10 people could make at least $1,500 just by selling the old junk they don't use anymore. We're not saying that's the actual value of your junk . . . just the amount you could probably sell it for. And the study found almost EVERYONE has clothes, books, and shoes in their house they never use. One in three people still hold onto old VHS TAPES and audio cassettes, even though they KNOW those aren't coming back.
Based on this, finish this sentence: “Even though I don’t use it anymore…I refuse to get rid of _____.” Here are the texts we got:
My pioner laser disk player, yes movies on a cd that's 12 inches across. I have rocky 1,2,3 rambo 1 and 3, fletch, and a few others.
I will never sell my old video games, I have every system back to the original Nintendo. And I can't bring myself to get rid of them
