Oh and don’t forget to go to my Wednesday post and leave me a comment in order to win Erin Bried’s book “How To Sew A Button…” See what I did there? Yeah I made it easy for you just click on Wednesday post and it will take you right to the post that was just 2 days ago. No scrolling back no fuss no muss. I love your comments so far. It sounds like our grandparents and parents really were the greatest generation. I mean teaching us to play poker and watch baseball are very important things
So here it is the week before Christmas and people are getting more and more stressed. How do I know this? I went to buy cleaning supplies and it was as if the famine had hit. People were stomping on each others toes in order to get that last mechanical hamster.
I took Boz for a walk the other day. While on our walk we encountered a man walking his dog. He looked at Boz and said “Is that a poodle?” I looked at him square and the eye and said nope it’s a miniature Christmas llama only one in existence.
How come the Salvation Army bell ringers on those sappy Christmas movies always wear Santa suits but the ones in my town just wear jeans and T-shirts? Do you think they really are collecting for the Salvation Army or collecting beer money?
This week’ overheard was actually a telephone conversation I had with a credit card company. I was disputing a charge on my bill. Yes someone had charged fire insurance on my card.
Me: I did not authorize a charge to XYZ Fire Insurance Company.
Customer Service: So you are saying you didn’t order a fire?
Me: No, not a fire, fire insurance from XYZ Fire Insurance Company.
Customer Service: Did they send you the merchandise?
Me: What merchandise?
Customer Service: The fire. Did they send you the fire?
Me: No. It is not for FIRE it is for FIRE INSURANCE and I DID NOT ORDER IT.
Customer Service: Can you describe the merchandise again?
Me: We didn't start the fire
It was always burning
Since the world's been turning
We didn't start the fire
No we didn't light it
But we tried to fight it
Thanks Billy Joel
Customer Service: I’m sorry I don’t understand.
If you follow me on the hacked version of Twitter then you know that I am unable to post any new pictures unless I offer up a ransom to Google to free up more space. What do you think? Should I give in to terrorist and pay the ransom?
