I was just taking the test for psychiatric disorders and had to answer 'what is the code for kleptomania.'


I immediately start thinking 'my gawd, I'm sure they have it broken out into something like: stealing from department store... stealing from gas station... stealing from grocery store... stealing from Target... stealing a car... stealing from yarn shop...


I was much relieved when I found the answer. 


Happy New Year!

Right!  I had just been reading the vehicle accident codes - three or four wheels / passenger or driver / dune buggy or snowmobile / unspecified occupant of dirt-bike... I was expecting the worst.  Ugh...

I'm really picturing a lot of people sitting around a conference table, coffee cups and fast food wrappers strewn around, working out all of these codes.  There's a comedy sketch in there somewhere.
