My mom got a free iPod with her laptop. It has been almost 4 years and she has not bothered to use or even put any music on her it. Two weeks ago, I discovered her listening to her brand new off-brand MP3 player. I asked her why she bought that when she had a practically mint-condition iPod. Her response: "I didn't know if I could put MP3's on an iPod."

Whenever someone cooks something in the microwave and leaves time on the clock, my dad likes to walk by and exclaim, "Alright, free time on the meter!" He knows exactly how a microwave works – my dad is just a huge dork.
