Lined up at the water fountain


So very typical...the biggest kid in the class goes right to the front of the line, gets his drink of water, then stands there for awhile just in case he might want another sip. The little kids wait patiently in line for their turn, and the bully is ready to cut in.

    I usually see it more like everybody standin' around the water cooler at the office, shootin' the breeze (avoidin' going back to their desk to work...).

  5. However, it seems to me the one in the worst shape is that poor orange cone. He's going to need more than a drink of the cool stuff to bring him back into top form. lol

  6. At my house everyone drinks in pairs. One to slurp while the other watches his back, then they change. Sometimes in a hurry they get their pair partner switched -- what havoc that creates!

  8. The only problem with the 'bully' at the fountain? He slobbers all over the drinking spout and no one wants to drink after him! Or worse, he passes gas and runs everybody off to keep the fountain to himself!! Teresa

  9. I'll remember this caption the next time I'm at the grocery store and the line gets a little testy. There's always a little somebody who won't wait and runs over feet with the cart to (butt) in.
    Animals always amaze me.
