Show Notes for Thursday August 2, 2018


Dear John,

I need your help. My mom is helping me get ready to go back-to-school and she won't listen to me at all. I don't want expensive things. I just want what I like. She wants me to wear thr stuff she likes. I think it should be up to me. I have a job and I'm willing to buy my own stuff, but she insists that she should have a say in what I wear. What do you think? My mom and I both listen to you, so I hope she hears this and actually listens to what you and Heidi have to say. I need your help with this one.

In the UK, a pensioner has lashed out at police after they visited his home to investigate reports of “offensive noises” – that came from a farting toy. Colin Mitchell was left dumbstruck when an officer arrived at his home investigate the noises. The constable was enquiring about reports by a neighbor of “offensive human noises” coming from inside the house. But Mr. Mitchell took the wind out of their sails when he said one of his four great-grandchildren had been playing with a fart machine. The 75-year-old said: ‘What an absolute waste of police time.” Mr. Mitchell has reportedly been involved in a long-running dispute with the neighbor. A spokeswoman from Herts Police said: “Words of advice have been given to both parties.” (
