Things That Want to Make You Yell out "WAA WAA WAA!"

Postby michmjon » Mon Feb 13, 2017 7:58 pm

We've all heard them in meetings. You're sitting there listening to someone speak when suddenly you get that overwhelming urge to ball up your fists and rub your eyes while shouting out "WAA WAA WAA!"

"My stupid car battery died and my blower lost all its data and now I gotta go back in front of the stupid judge."

"I can't where nylons anymore because of this damn bracelet."

"I'm sick and tired of constantly having to ride the bus or bum rides from friends. I don't see any reason why they took my driver's license just because I drove out of town!"

"I hate my probation officer. He's such an a**h*le!"

"I don't get why they have to charge me so much for auto insurance just because I got a DUI."

I don't know why my mother-in-law hates me so much. I never done anything to her."

"Two years ago I knocked down my neighbor's mailbox with my car and drove across his lawn when I was drunk and the jerk still won't talk to me."

And my ALL TIME FAVORITE....

"I can't believe it. I just found out I'm getting sued over a three year old unpaid bar tab!"

I thank my higher power for the practice sessions in tolerance and patience, that and the realization that when I share, others might be thinking "OMG, not him again, here we go."

Those are funny michmijon and there's some irony there. I tend to surround myself with positive people. I take my lumps and shake the dust off my heels and move on with life. Anyway I was at a meeting like that one night when the first person started finding fault in everything in life and it was setting the tone for the entire meeting. The next person was down on everything. It went on a whining session with the next few people getting in on the negativity like "OH YEAH??? WELL TOP THIS!!!

I was concerned but I wasn't angry about it but I could see others gritting their teeth. I was more of an observer at the way the speakers habitual whining was really pissing some of the folks off. I figured I'd let it go for a while and see if anyone changed the tone of the meeting. Well it wasn't going to happen. So finally I got up in my dry humor mode and mocked the others with "Now I have a wife and she's a good wife. But this morning she asked me how I wanted my eggs and I told her I wanted one hard boiled and the other scrambled and she boiled the wrong one but I'm gonna stay sober in spite of her.". It got laughs and I walked back to my seat smiling. But for me my smiling was suppressed laughter like when I'm kneeling in front of a coffin and burst out laughing. Then look down at the guy in the coffin "Hey Joe. Nice tie. All dressed up and no place to go" :lol:

OMG - I was thinking the same thing! At my Home Group we laugh A LOT. I tend to forget where I am at meetings and have been known to laugh at the mundane tragedies that sometimes get uttered in meetings. NOT so much because they are laughable, but because I too once thought insanely like that.

ME: "Stupid F**ing cops took me to jail when I was the one who called in the complaint! I mean they know me by name! You would think they would know by now my "other/___**" is the issue!" :lol: :lol:

NOELS AND PAIGES LAUGH:
Noels and Paige I bet you have an infectious and uplifting laugh. :lol: It reminds me of a girl I took on a date after I got sober. We went to see the movie "Every Which Way But Loose". In the movie when Ruth Gordon took her shotgun to the cornball bikers yelling at them "Get outa here you son's a b*****s!" and when she kicked the Pink Cloud Motel Clerk in his family jewels for peeping thru a window at a couple, the clerk is doubled over in pain and Ruth Gordon said "Oh no! The first live one in twenty years and I disable him!", my date burst out laughing so loud she got everyone in the theatre laughing along with her. She was hilarious! :lol:

I walked into the meeting after the meeting coffee shop one night. A couple of young guys were talking about being frustrated over a girl. One guy told the other one "Hey you want-a talk to someone about relationships talk to John Daniels. The other guy said "John Daniels? What does he know about relationships, he's married!" :lol:

Thanks. Just what I needed to hear Today.

I ordered a New Boat June 5th, that was suppose to arrive Aug 9th. I have been patiently waiting, knowing August 9th is August 9th. Well August 10th, patients left me a little. Justifying my lack of, by a picture of it in July, completed at the Factory with a tag 07/18/17 on it.

So shipping was a concern, long distance with very little product coming this far East. But it arrived Yesterday. The Dealership quickly grabbed it and wanted to rig it today so I could have it for the weekend. (even though I have to work Saturday off of schedule). And paperwork wouldn't be done until Monday, but they Trust Me, and well I never even drove one of this Brand of Boats. Well I got the call around 3, that it hadn't been started and won't be.

Then I blew a gasket for a few hours, Why am I waiting? Why wasn't it here 9!!! days ago, Why wasn't I put First? I only started to come back down after work, only to be Dialled Up again with my Daughter's visit and her Loud Voice gets to me when I am on my Pity Pot.

Then I stumbled on this and was reminded "It is just as it should be" if I stay out of the way and ask for guidance.

Hi Cristy99
I enjoy your posts. I especially enjoy the part where you said >"these challenging people that make me repeat "principles before personalities" over and over are excellent practice!!!"
You may be aware of this already but I want to share it anyway because I like the humor in the story. There may be other folks here who will likely know this story of how chiming in at the end of the reading of the preamble with "principles before personalities" got started. There was a guy in an LA area meeting who believed in anonymity to the point he didn't even think anyone should even know who each other were. So he got to chiming in at the end of the reading of the 12 Traditions with "PRINCIPLES BEFORE PERSONALITIES!"

Well, a few guys around him got to mocking him so when he chimed in with "PRINCIPLES BEFORE PERSONALITIES!", a few other guys joined in with him to kind of tease him. They'd say it with him "Principles before personalities, huh huh huh! How do ya like that Bill?" Pretty soon everyone was saying it. It wasn't long until it was spreading like wildfire all over the country.
Then, some years back people started chiming in at the end of the reading of The Preamble of How it Works with " ... could and would if he were sought"

Things like this used to irritate me. But I found my answer in the Serenity Prayer and I can't stay irritated very long. Then I have to laugh at the silliness. That being said, God as I understand him must have a dry sense of humor too because in finding my answers in the Serenity Prayer of others chiming in at the end of The Preamble "... could and would if he were sought" for no reason what so ever, gave me an idea. The answer in my minds eye imagining people chiming in with Robert Wuhl in Hollywood Knights. It's the scene he runs around the Beverly Hills High School Gymnasium with the microphone cheesing the song Volare over the loudspeakers. :lol:

The 1st mate said "Captain! Captain! Pirates are coming! What should I do?"
The Captain said "How many ships?"
1st Mate said "Just 1"
The captain not wanting his men to loose confidence said "Get my red coat!" (because his red coat matched the color of blood in a battle and would not show if their captain was shot)
The captain and his men won the battle against the pirates.

The next day the 1st mate said "Captain! Captain! Pirates are coming!"
The Captain said "How many ships?"
His 1st mate said "Two ships!"
The Captain said "Get my red coat!"
They beat the Pirates to smithereens.

The next day the first mate said "Captain! Captain! Pirates are coming!"
Captain said "How many ships?"
His 1st mate said TWENTY SHIPS!!! You want me to get your red coat?
The captain said "No. Get my brown pants!"

I really like that brown pants joke, heard it before, but some jokes even if you know what's coming you still enjoy.

These joke threads are a good thing, a line in the big book says “but why shouldn't we laugh.” A few years ago there was a thread of jokes that went quite well for a while, then someone sort of messed it up, but a fellow there “joedecook” told good jokes. I remember Joe from when I was new here, he was a cook and also worked on offshore oil platforms, which I worked on a bit myself.

It can be found here - viewtopic.php?f=25&t=11354 and as a sample I will copy the first one -

A nun, badly needing to use the restroom, walked into a local Hooters.
The place was hopping with music and loud conversation and every once in a while ‘the lights would turn off.’
Each time the lights would go out, the place would erupt into cheers.
However, when the revelers saw the nun, the room went dead silent.
She walked up to the bartender, and asked, ‘May I please use the restroom?
The bartender replied, ‘OK, but I should warn you that there is a statue of a naked man in there wearing only a fig leaf.’
‘Well, in that case, I’ll just look the other way,’ said the nun.
So the bartender showed the nun to the back of the restaurant.
After a few minutes, she came back out, and the whole place stopped just long enough to give the nun a loud round of applause. !
She went to the bartender and said, ‘Sir, I don’t understand. Why did they applaud for me just because I went to the restroom?’
‘Well, now they know you’re one of us,’ said the bartender, ‘Would you like a drink?’
‘No thank you, but, I still don’t understand,’ said the puzzled nun.
‘You see,’ laughed the bartender, ‘every time someone lifts the fig leaf on that statue, the lights go out.
Now, how about that drink?’

Another one further along in the thread, shows that even the silly kind of joke can bring a smile-

Two hunters became lost in the woods. Fighting panic, they tried to think of what to do.

One of them said, "Hey, 3 shots into the air is a universal sign of distress! Let's try that!"

So one of them fired off 3 shots. In about 2 hours, with no sign of rescue near, the other guy fired off 3 shots into the air.

2 more hours went by, still no sign of rescue. So one guy looks at the other and asks, "You think we should try again?"

Second guy says, "We can't..... we're out of arrows!"
