While i was thinking i picked up a fortune cookie, i opened it up and tossed the fortune in the trash and ate the cookie. While i was walking away i realized what i had done and retrieved it from the garbage...sick isn't it?

I ate the fortune while tossing the cockie. Didn't taste right.
Originally posted by Chessmaster12 I just eat the cookie, and read the fortune. It usually says something meaningless on it, so I throw it away. Just like everybody else.
Not everybody. I personally think some of them are useless, but some of them have very intrigueing advice on it. a lot of the time it's a load of bull, but that doesn't mean you should take it for granted.
Two real life fortune cookie stories (they aren't incredible enough to be made up, so you might want to go on to the next posting and forget about this one):
1. we had a springer spaniel way back when and wanted to breed him and weren't having any luck in finding a mate for him. we gave him a fortune cookie, but i have to admit we opened it and read his fortune: you will soon meet a short brown stranger (absolutely true! no exaggeration, nor this next part) it was about two weeks later that he met his mate and had puppies shortly after.
2. i work in a service industry. our crews stopped at a chinese restaurant for lunch. we all opened and read our cookies. one fellow's cookie said: you have no future (i mean it. it really really said that) well, we got an emergency service call just after reading our cookies - i mean JUST got it - and he went out on the call and messed up and got fired . . . . none of us saw him after that (not as precise of a cookie, since i do think that he actually did have a future, but just not one that included the rest of us - i'm glad he got the cookie and not me. i guess that's human nature).
