Seven Crazy Things We’d Do to Avoid Paying Taxes

The most interesting part of this survey might be just how TERRIFIED we are of singing in public.  Two-thirds of us wouldn’t do it in front of our co-workers even if thousands of dollars were on the line.

Over 1,000 people were asked if they’d perform five karaoke songs in front of their co-workers to get out of paying TAXES, and almost 70% said NO.

Here are seven scenarios, and how many of us would go through with them if it meant we didn’t have to pay taxes this year . . .

1.  Perform five karaoke songs in front of your co-workers . . . 32% would do it.

2.  Go without WiFi for an entire year . . . 18% said they’d do it.

3.  Let your credit score plummet 50 points . . . 16% said yes.

4.  Gain 20 pounds . . . 13% would do it.

5.  Have your entire browser history made public . . . 11% would let it happen.

6.  Smell like a SKUNK for six months . . . 5% said it would be worth it.

7.  Give up half of your retirement savings . . . 5% would do it.  Which is actually low, because a survey last month found 34% of us haven’t saved ANYTHING for retirement.  So that one should be an automatic yes for a lot of people.


The Best Time to Use the Bathroom at Work, on a Plane, and at a Restaurant

This might come in handy today, or every day.  When’s the best time to use bathroom at work if you want to stay in there a while, and have some privacy?

Some website asked an HR guru who considers herself an “expert” on the topic.  And she says the two best times are first thing in the morning, or during your lunch hour.

Most people don’t use the bathroom right when they get to work, so there probably won’t be anyone in there.  And there’s a good chance you’ll have some privacy when everyone’s out at lunch too . . . but it kind of defeats the purpose of not working.

They also asked a former flight attendant about the best time to get down to business on a PLANE.  That one’s harder to predict because of the people-to-toilet ratio.

But she claims your best bet is right after they turn off the fasten seatbelt sign.  Or you could wait 20 to 30 minutes for the initial rush to pass.  Just make sure you get in there before they serve drinks, or you’ll have to wait a while.

If you need a long bathroom break while you’re with someone at a RESTAURANT, the best time to go is right after you order.  And you’ve got about five minutes before they start wondering what’s taking so long.

The Tooth Fairy Now Pays an All-Time High of $4.66 Per Tooth

The Tooth Fairy must be doing something important with all those teeth.  From a business standpoint, I don’t see how she’s making a profit anymore . . .

According to an annual poll that just came out, the Tooth Fairy paid an average of $4.66 per tooth last year, which is an all-time high.

That’s up 19% from 2015, when it was $3.91 per tooth.  And the price for a FIRST tooth hit $5.72.

If you do the math, that means she paid out just over $290 MILLION for teeth last year.

Kids in the western part of the U.S. got the biggest payouts last year at $5.96 per tooth.  Kids in the Northeast got $5.08 . . . kids in the South got $4.57 . . . and kids in the Midwest averaged $4.04 per tooth.

48% of parents said they make their kids save their Tooth Fairy money . . . another 48% let them spend it . . . and 3% said it gets donated to charity.
