We can see everything … So. Play. Nice.

Those two cafeteria workers at the Federal Building that were found temporarily “unsuitable” for their jobs?

They’re back on the job … one due to a glitch with the social security number and the other, Mrs. Broughton, due to an arrest for stealing a TV in 1997. She claims that there was a mixup with the carts and she accidentally walked out of a store with a TV she didn’t pay for. Okay.

The best part is when interviewed by the PG last week as to why she might have been found unsuitable, she said:

Ms. Broughton, 58, of Crafton Heights, who said she’s never been in trouble, agreed.

“I can’t understand it,” she said.

Now that its been discovered, Mrs. Broughton says she didn’t disclose it to homeland security because she “forgot about it.”


I remember almost every time I got in trouble with my sisters for simple things like not sharing toys, making the younger twins be our slaves for the day, rolling our eyes, whatever … and this was 25 years ago (shut up! I’m old. 32 sucks.), so I don’t believe for ONE IOTA of a fraction of a millisecond that she “forgot” she was arrested and charged for stealing a TV nine years ago.

Liar. So the next time you are asked “have you ever been charged with a crime,” know that they have ways of finding the truth out and ANSWER WITH THE TRUTH, Mrs. Broughton.

Because now, you just look silly.

    You can’t be old. I’ve got 2 years on you and I’m not old, therefore you can not be. It’s not possible. I have this theory that you have to be a ‘grown up’ before you can be old, and I have no plans to ever become a ‘grown up’, therefore can never be old. You calling yourself old, and being younger than me threatens to mess with my theory. I can’t allow that. Old is always at least 20 years older than I am, and you are 2 years younger, so old will always be 22 years older than you. You may sigh with relief and have fun now! :)

    I feel sooo much better. :) I do like the “grown up” theory … lots. Here’s to NEVER growing up.

    Come again? Making the “younger” twins be “our” slaves? So there are essentially four of you?

    Yes, but see, I planned to be a hot ass 26 year old for the rest of my life … and it hasn’t quite turned out that way. :D

    But it CAN be that way, every year, on your birthday when someone asks, how old are you – you simply respond, I’m 26! If they say, but weren’t you 26 last year? then you simply respond, yes but that was only practice. Or if your feeling a little more snarky about it – you simply stare them down and say, didn’t your mother teach you it isn’t polite to ask a womans age? Or my personal favorite response, old enough to know better, young enough not to care ;)
