Dry Embossed Holloween
I have to share a DUMB guy story with you all but first let me share another card quite similar to yesterday's (same layout) only all dry embossed. I used the same color scheme and papers but pulled my brass out for this one. Which do you like better? I also cut the wording for this one out using a new Halloween Cuttlebug folder.
Now on to this story you will love. First a little background I do not own a cell phone.... I see jaws dropping, how could anyone live without one? ME:) I love my quiet time as I commute back and forth to work. That is when I dream up all my creative ideas. I run a local readymix company and today the weather was rainy so I sent home all the guys with the exception of 2 drivers and the mechanic. The mechanic has been with the company awhile. I recently hired a new driver (2 weeks ago) who was not one of the guys working today. His name is Marlon!
Now on to my story for today. I received a phone call that the boss needed me to pick him up from dialysis and take him home so having to leave unexpectedly I told the mechanic to answer the phones and take messages. I was gone a little longer then expected. The boss decided he was hungry and took me to lunch. When I returned I was greeted with "Oh thank heavens your back" Puzzled I asked "WHY". A driver had returned and was paid in cash. They could not figure out what to do with the money so my ace mechanic says "I called Marlon". I said to him "Why the HELL would you call someone that has been with company less then 2 weeks" OK You will love his response Are you ready......
"He was the only one that would answer the phone".!!!! So then trying not to laugh to hard at them I asked where they found his number? In the phone book just below where bosses cell phone was!! Is that not FUNNY!
OK, I am off to nurse this headache I have had all week (wonder why) see above:)
Thanks for stopping by.
