Some people never seem motivated to participate, but are just content to watch while others do the work.
They are called “Speck Taters”.

Some people never do anything to help, but are gifted at finding fault with the way others do the work.
They are called “Comment Taters”.

Some people are very bossy and like to tell others what to do, but don’t want to soil their own hands.
They are called “Dick Taters”.

Some people are always looking to cause problems by asking others to agree with them. It is too hot or too cold, too sour or too sweet.
They  are called “Agie Taters”.

There are those who say they will help, but somehow just never get around to actually doing the promised help.
They are called “Hezzie Taters”.

Some people can put up a front and pretend  to be someone they are not.
They are called “Emma Taters”.

Then  there are those who love others and do what they say they will. They are always prepared to
stop whatever they are doing and lend a helping hand. They bring real sunshine into the lives of others.
They are called “Sweet  Taters”.

  1. The mumble bit should be compulsory reading for teenagers…


  2. Good post. Reminds me of an old joke along this line, An Idaho potato married a Russet potato and in time they produced a little sweet potato. As this little one was growing up, one day she announced that when she grew up, she wanted to marry Lowell Thomas. (Yeah, I know. “Who?” He was a famous TV news personality who died in 1981. I told you it was an old joke. I couldn’t think of a current one to replace him with.) Her parents were horrified at this. “But, dear,” ;protested the mother. “He’s just a common tater.” Oh, well.


  3. Hmmm I like taters!! lol
    I shared this on facebook.


  4. Absolutely love this post. My brother is a huge “tater” fan and is always coming up with different taterisms for different people. He is going to love this!


  5. Unfortunately this tater family is empl;yed everywhere I have ever worked professionally or privately.

  7. My dad used to use this one sometimes when he was preaching. Hadn’t heard it for years!


  8. And then there are those who rise above it all: the “Greater-taters!” [moan]
    Sorry… couldn’t resist! 😛


  9. I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view,
    if all website owners and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
