The fair anyone???

Working my new job had me transporting people to and from the fair all week. I had about 15 minutes between routes to set there and I noticed something that I had previously realized, but not to this extreme.
There are a lot of normal family people who go to have a good time at the fair, but about 80% of the people had the look of inbred, outbred, wrong turn, hills have eyes and just plain ole weirdo's!
It was something like from a bad movie. Anyone else ever set and just look at fair goers??? Hg

My EX-WIFE (ugh) & I used to go to the Metro Center Mall in Phoenix
in the 80's just to do some people (if that is what they are called) watching.
You remember when the spiked-big hair-body piercing crap all began??
I actually asked one group of kids--Excuse me, just WHAT planet are you from exactly??--

Do that now---might get knifed or shot!!

Good times.

I usually notice the people that work at the fair more...............They are the "Creme, de la Creme"

I don't think that the fair workers union has a dental plan.

And thinking, aww, I bet she just has a thyroid problem! That sounds like a piece of the skit Bill Engvall does about the fair. He cracks me up and his telling of fair-goers is great.

I love the North GA State Fair. It's coming up again near the end of September. I have to be careful when I go though, I've got this thing with 'my space' and inconsiderate people crowding me usually get growled at. Rowr! Heh.

Can't go without getting cotton candy and a funnel cake. I usually go several evenings.

Paredo's Law.... the 80/20 rule of life.....

20% of the people have 80% of the money, etc. The upper 20% of that 20% (4% of the total) have 80 x 80 = 64% of the money.

20% of the people are upper, 80% are lower, etc.

Think of workers. 20% do 80% of the work. The lower 20% of that 80% (16% of the total) are the worthless good-for-nothing bums.

In almost any life's situation you can think of..... people and things can be divided into 80/20. Even those 80% can be divided into 80/20.

If you observe all situations carefully, you will find that the 80/20 rule applies to everything.
