For anyone seriously contemplating co-signing a loan don’t overlook these opportunities as well…
Find a bunch of motorcycles parked outside a biker bar and push the first one over. It’s a lot like the game dominos coupled with the 400 yard dash.
Locate an isolated stretch of train tracks and pitch your camping tent between the rails. Wait for the Midnight Flyer to spot you first. You can add to the fun by applying a few drops of crazy glue to the zipper on your sleeping bag.
Find the meanest most ferocious dog in your neighborhood. Hop the fence and see if you can grab the dog by its tail. That’s the easy part, it’s the letting go that gets a little hairy.
Toe nails a little long? Break out the weed wacker and start trimming. What’s that you say, you live in a condo? Try the same thing with your Wearing blender set on ‘clip’.
Go back to the biker bar, walk up to one of the pool tables in use, pick up the 8 ball and drop it in the nearest beer mug. It won’t matter whose mug it is, the result will be the same.
Post something on the Mobile Home forum saying “although you enjoy reading the ‘hillbilly board’ that stuff isn’t Real Estate so they must be just wasting their time”. You might want to include your home phone number just to get the full effect.
The next time you take a flight somewhere ask one of the flight attendants if they will let you drink in the cockpit with the pilots. You can start out by saying “Oh, stewardess, since I brought my own corkscrew with me…”
Now granted, none of these are as dangerous as co-signing a loan, but in case you are never asked to do so, you now know other ways to accomplish basically the same outcome.
