Foot in Mouth? Dial Jay

I have been slow on orders this week. None Monday. Two Tuesday. Today none.

Then excitement because an order came in. But it is for tomorrow. Oh well. I was going to pull it this afternoon. Or rather part of it. Leave the fresh for tomorrow.

There is another learning module, this time for Scene+ . I had gone into the office with K and we were chatting. I figured that I would do my Scene+ and get it out of the way. That is when the phone rang. And that is when the foot found itself securely lodged in my mouth.

K answered and said yes a moment please and handed the phone over to me. I greeted my customer, who was calling to place an order but I could not place his voice. So I asked who I was speaking with. And it was Dick.

Whenever he orders, he places a big order. Or a small order with multiples. Either way it meant that I had an order. I had something to do other than face the store. I put him on hold as I needed to grab my note pad from my till.

As I was going out the door I exclaimed loudly:

I love Dick!

Yeah it hit home as the words left my mouth. K was gasping for air she was laughing so hard. And she also gave me heck telling me not to make her laugh.

I laughed. I also told my co-workers who share my adolescent sense of humor. And there was much laughing. And Jay will be much more careful in the future as to the things she announces to others.

  1. Hahahaha! 🤣😂
    We have a club in the US called Dick’s Last Resort. The schtick is that they are purposely rude to the customers, who love it, which prompts the same response! I even have their bumper sticker somewhere!
