Here are a few things that made me chuckle this week:
Hello! Actual dialog between me and my Office Depot sales assistant:
Me: Do you have any more of these black dry erase menu boards in stock?
ODsa: Let me check! ("beep" as he scans the label on the shelf with his scanner gun) Oh no, sorry. But I can order one for you.
Me: I guess that would be ok. Thanks.
ODsa (now up front at the checkout till): Ok, that will $42.80.
Me: I'm sorry, but the price on the shelf said it was only $32.
ODsa: That's true, but there is an $8 shipping charge.
Me: That doesn't make any sense. Why should I pay a shipping charge for a product that you ran out of?
ODsa: Because I'm ordering it for you. We have to place our orders online the same way you would.
Me: Well, I'll pass then. Is there any way you can just take my name and let me know when your next shipment comes in?
ODsa: Oh sure, I can give you a raincheck and we'll give you a call.
Me: That would be fine. And when do you expect those?
ODsa: They should in be later this week.
Me: All riiiighty then. But just one more question... If I had ordered it from you, when would that have come in?
ODsa: With the same shipment - later this week.
ArachnoFriday - No kidding, I am NOT making this up.
Friday morning I was driving to work and my ankle was itching. I reached down to scratch it and pulled a tiny little spider off of it.
Friday at work I felt something crawling on the back of my neck so I reached around and smacked it as hard as I could. Sure enough, a medium-sized black spider.
Friday evening I was unloading my band gear from my van for a gig I was at, and a large fuzzy brown spider was crawling up my arm. I nearly dropped my amp.
What the hell?
Not Separated at Birth - Ok, time to dispel the rumor. Although we do look similar, I am NOT Alton Brown's illegitimate older brother.
UNLESS... Mom - is there something you're not telling me???
Three ways I showed my wife how much I cared on our 17th anniversary on Saturday:
1. I picked up my dirty underwear from the bedroom floor
2. I told her that she was so naturally beautiful that expensive jewelry would just be wasted on her
3. I let her make the dinner reservations - at the buffet of her choice!
She is ONE lucky woman - no doubt about that!
