Celebrating Halloween In The Office – The Dos & Don’ts

The past few years here at the radio station we've celebrated Halloween with an in-office costume contest and tied in a chili cook-off with it! It was fun seeing your co-workers dressed up in their Halloween costumes and enjoying some home made chili, because with cooler temps in East Texas, nothings better.

Research Says Our ’5 Second Rule’ is Off

My co-workers here at the radio station are pretty good at obeying that unwritten "Five Second Rule."

You know, when you drop something on the floor, you have five seconds to pick it up and pop it in your mouth. After five seconds, apparently it becomes too dirty and germy for consumption.

Did you know this applies to countertops as well as the floor? Researchers say countertops, where we prepare food, are actually more germ-ridden than that dirty, icky floor. Oh dear, we're in big trouble.

911 Butt Dials Are a Growing Problem

9-1-1 false alarms are nothing new. We've heard of kids dialing 9-1-1 when there's no emergency, and Kidd Kraddick has shared some gems with us in the past about people calling emegency dispatchers for all the wrong reasons.

But have you ever been driving on the The Loop in Tyler and accidently butt-dialed 9-1-1? In the age where everyone has a smart phone that's always at the ready, accidental pocket-dials to emergency officials are a growing problem.

This is the Most Forgotten Item at Hotels

Have you ever checked out of a hotel, traveled home, and then realized you left something behind in the room?

I have. On a road trip to the north, my family stayed at a hotel in Wichita, Kansas, and when we got home we could only find one Dora The Explorer sock. In the process of jumping on the bed and running around the room, our 3-year old at the time must have shed a sock and a cleaning person whose daughter also may have had just one sock, hit the jackpot.
