I've been telling the Skank487 story lately so I thought I would share it here (My apologies if you have or have had the IM moniker of Skank487):

When we go away one of my brothers will stay at the house and take care of the dogs. Well, years ago my youngest brother watched the house and the dog. He was 21 or 22 at the time. He used my husband's work laptop to surf the internet. We won't discuss what he may have looked at or whatever he did online, but we do know he installed some instant messaging software that we were NEVER able to fully destroy.

You know where this is going, don't you? Yeah. Poor husband. He didn't see it coming. He is standing in front of a large group of higher-ups at Washington Mutual. His laptop screen is shown on a giant video screen so everyone can see. Other higher-ups who couldn't make it where connected online.

There's my husband pitching the e-bidding process he has been working on for the company when up pops a little window: Skank487 says "Want to play?"


My Eagle Scout husband was mortified. It took him a few minutes to figure out how to get that off the screen. There were more than a few snickers. Even more snickers when he threw out there, "My brother in law used my computer this weekend." Yeah, right, buddy...
