I don’t care if I am 29 years old there is something really funny about people saying the word duty. It is too close to the childhood word for feces called doodie. The first time I laughed about that word was when my wife said she had bus duty at school. I responded with Bus doodie is one of the worst kinds to have and then laughed. Yesterday at church there was duty everywhere. Our pastor said in all 3 services that some of our volunteers were working double duty. I don’t know about you but the thought of double doodie is pretty funny. Then last night at the 6:00 PM service one of the volunteers started talking to me about double duty. I am mature enough to not laugh in their face when they say this, but I can’t help but wonder why they don’t giggle after saying duty in a sentence. This is just my opinion but I think you should keep your duty or doodie to yourself. Whether it is ship duty, bus duty, double duty, late duty, early duty, or any other type of duty. America let’s starting today let’s keep our duty to ourselves.

    Rob, I have to say that never in my life before this post have I heard the word “doodie” used for human feces. However, you have now opened my eyes to an entire new world of jokes which the Dominice family will enjoy more than we probably should.

    Also on the note of “doodie,” Dan has not seen Casino Royale…

    I too share your disgust for that word. When someone says it to me, the world seems to stop for just a few seconds. And the word echoes in my mind. I lose track of what they are saying to me. I just stare at them in disgust. My wife talks about her school duty all the time.
    You have brought attention to this matter. Thankful. I am.
