Good news for guys:  Here are four weird things that might actually HELP you attract women:  Body odor . . . scars and blemishes . . . feminine traits like being sensitive . . . and awkwardness. Not everyone is attracted to the same stuff.  In other words. . . . guys . . . something you don't like about yourself could actually be SEXY to someone else.  Check out four weird things that are supposedly huge turn-ons for women.


1.  Body Odor.  Not all women want you to smell like cologne . . . or Axe Body Spray . . . or whatever ELSE you use to smell good.  There's a lot to be said for just smelling like a MAN. Just make sure you're clean and that you showered recently.  You don't want your natural scent to be TOO overpowering.

2.  Scars and Blemishes.  Women are attracted to scars and blemishes because they tell a story.  Any interesting blemish will do the trick . . . a birthmark, a distinctive mole, or a scar on your cheek from when you cut yourself as a kid.

 3.  Stereotypically Feminine Traits.  Yes, some women DO like tough, manly men.  But there are just as many who prefer gentle, sensitive guys who are in touch with their feelings.

 4.  Awkwardness.  Awkward guys get a bad rap.  But not ALL women feel the same way.  Nerdiness has become a more acceptable "thing" lately, and you'd be surprised at how many ladies will like your gawky side.

So how many times a day do you find yourself angry at work? On average, a person in the workplace gets angry on the job twice a day.But what really drives you to the boiling point? I am for the most part,an easy going type guy.It really takes a lot to rattle my chain.And maybe most of you are the same way.But there is always that one pet peeve,well actually at least two a day that turn any Dr Jekyll into a raging Mr Hyde!
According to a recent survey,these are the Top 10 things that really get you fired up at the office.Please feel free to add your own comment if whatever gets your goat is not included in the results.

1.  Other coworkers taking credit for your work.

2.  Computer problems . . . from crashes to the Internet going out.

3.  Rude clients.

4.  Arguments over making the coffee.

5.  Not having time for a lunch break.

6.  The mere fact that it's Monday and the weekend is over.

7.  People talking to you when you're trying to concentrate.

8.  Coworkers gossiping.

9.  The printer not working right.

10.  Coworkers messing up your desk.

A new survey (and there are so many surveys!) asked women what age you should stop wearing some of the younger, sexy fashion choices:  You should stop wearing short shorts at 35 . . . belly button piercings at 35 . . . miniskirts at 37 . . . bikinis at 40 . . . and stilettos at 41.
Do you agree or disagree with this scientific (not) study?

A new survey asked 2,000 women to pick the age when they should stop wearing some of the younger, sexier fashion choices.  Here are the average cut-off ages . . .


Crop tops that show off your midriff age 34
Really short shorts age 35
Belly-button rings and piercings age 35
Leggings age 37
Miniskirts age 37
Bikinis age 40
Stiletto heels age 41
Long hair age 42


But here’s the part I like….16% of women surveyed disagreed with ALL of this . . . and said as long as you can pull it off, there's no age limit on ANY type of clothing.

Here's a list of the most HATED Christmas songs! Am I missing any? I decided to pull my stocking out of the attic 'cause it won't be long until Jolly Ole St. Nick makes a stop at Mckay-ville! What's your absolute favorite number 1 Christmas song? I still love Andy Williams song, "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year"! That song is usually playing right as a fuse blows on my Christmas lights! LOL!

5. Elmo & Patsy, "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer"
6. Cartman, "O Holy Night"

10. Little Jimmy Boyd, "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus"

Next time your wife wants you to do the dishes, tell her no to SAVE YOUR MARRIAGE.

--According to a new study, the divorce rate for couples who split housework and chores equally is almost 50% higher than the divorce rate for couples where the woman does most of the housework. The researchers say they were surprised at the result.  Quote, "One would think that break-ups would occur more often in families with less equality at home, but our statistics show the opposite."  They have two theories why this happens. One is that relationships might work better when both people, quote, "have very clear roles with lots of clarity.  There could be less [arguments] than if both have the same roles and one has the feeling the other isn't pulling his or her weight." The other theory comes off sounding WAY more sexist.  The researchers say couples that evenly divide the housework are usually more, quote, "modern" couples where the woman works and makes good money. That means she's less financially dependent on her husband like, ya know, women were 50 years ago . . . so she's not afraid to get a divorce.

#5.)  Copier paper
#6.)  USB memory sticks
#7.)  Notepads.
#8.)  Pens 
#9.)  Staplers
#10.)  Highlighters 

...........is there anything missing from the list?

  According to a recent LinkedIn survey, almost 70% of workers say the most important factor when it comes to being "lucky" in your career is having a strong worth ethic.

--The big misconception about "luck" is that you don't have to work for it.  The truth is, you have to be proactive.  And you have to take advantage of opportunities whenever you can.  Here are three ways to be luckier in your career.

 
#1.)  Network with Everyone.  Not just people you meet through your job.  Talk to anyone you can, whenever you can.  Even if it's the person standing next to you in line for coffee.

 --The more people you meet and connect with, the better your chances are of finding someone who can do something for your career.  They might not even work in the same industry as you do.  They might just know someone.

 #2.)  Break Out of Your Routine.  You won't be lucky in your career unless you give yourself a CHANCE to be lucky.  And if you have the exact same routine every day, your chances of meeting new people aren't very good.

 --Try going to lunch with someone new from your office.  Or maybe just try a different bar for happy hour this week.

 --The bottom line is, any time you surround yourself with new people, you give yourself a better chance of meeting someone who can help you out. 

 #3.)  Don't Be Shy About What You Want.  You don't want to seem like you're just USING the person.  But if you speak up, your chances of getting what you want will skyrocket.
