You're definitely with-it if...

You ever worry about squaring a beef...

You have no job... You have a good proposition...

You wonder if that mootch is a live one...

You have to get back to the lot...

You eat at the cookhouse...

You're comfortable in the porta-john...

You walk around with your eyes on the ground looking for groundscores...

You can change a yard note while arguing on the phone and checking up three HPAs at the same time...

Your Ex shows up for the big ones...

Your winter roll came in late and is gone too early...

Ya got most of it right bro. After 20 years I still can't stand a Doniker though. Ha Ha

And I never had any luck with groundscores, always had my head up, checkin' out the action on the midway.

Reminds me of a story which took place in Nassau, Bahamas.
Agent used the donniker, then much to his dismay realized there was no tp. In desperation he made use of the only thing he had available, a single. A short time later another agent took in a wadded up dollar bill on a joint. The mark played, lost and walked away. The agent straightened out the single to put it in his apron only to realize it was the same one. The mark had apparently fished it out of the donniker thinking this must be his lucky day.

Anyone asking these questions is probably NOT with-it…

Hey man, what’s the gimmick?

Do you guys like go all over?

Can I get paid in cash?

What time do we close down tonight?

Do you want me to help break down too?

Do I get free tickets if I work here?

Can I have Friday and Saturday off?

Can I work on the Flying Himalaya instead today?

Can my friend take my place?

Whitey needs the key to the Flying Doniker…

You know your not with it when:

You look for the key to the midway

The guy running the Dragon Wagon is the most fasinating person you've ever met

You're not quite sure if you got the right change at the ticket booth

You can't figure out how you used up $20 at the bank-a-ball

You go to the stock trailer (which is in the dead lot) to get the board stretcher

You're still waiting for that guy to pay you back on Tuesday

You think the carnies only work one week a year...just for your festival

You go to the cookshack and ask for rehash

You believe that riding the rides is part of your pay

You've been watching the fair set up for 10 years, so you know what to do

The more you know, the greater your life
can be.

2. That wagon may have too much crap loaded on it…

3. That horse may be better off inside the cats…

4. How many damn times I gotta pull that monkey’s teeth…

5. Put all the drunks in the car that smells like p!ss and vomit, and the fancy boys in car seven…

6. That boy didn’t run away and join the circus, he was run out of town and now we’re stuck with him…

7. That b!tch has got to go, or them trick dogs need to be cut…

8. Aint no point to hardassin’ cat meat…

9. Red light him…

10. Red lighting saves a lotta bonus money…

Things you might hear around a show today…

1. First week’s all cotton candy and teddy bears…

2. That rig aint gonna get past the first scale…

3. I wish they’d junk that d@mn ride…

4. I can’t believe I have to fight that troublemaker again…

History tells us that the more things change, the more they remain the same…
