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.

I Use To Like Being Scared

This is going to be the funniest thing y’all have heard this week. And it stars your lovable klutz, me! Only this time it has nothing to do with my injuring myself. And everything to do with a change to a podcast that I had been listening to.

Instead of music when I go to bed, I like to listen to thunderstorm sounds. However given fan running it requires my phone being turned all the way up.

After T and I got our phones last week, Sunday night I pulled up IHeartRadio to begin listening to my podcast. In the time from Tuesday when mom arrived to Sunday evening a change had taken place. The podcast I was listening to no longer existed. Another one had taken its place. This one was ad supported which leads into the rest of the story.

The first night I had just drifted off to sleep when a man and woman began to speak very loudly in my bedroom. I jerked awake and realized that it was my phone. The ads had begun. At top volumn. I turned podcast off and went back to sleep. Forgetting all about this.

Tuesday night I had forgotten all about the ads. I put the podcast on and quickly fell asleep. I awoke screaming at the top of my lungs, sitting up in bed, throwing the covers back. The man and woman were back! What I was going to do if there really had been a man and woman in my bedroom I don’t know. I got up and went to bathroom. Settled down my heart.

Wednesday night I am laying in bed. I put on the podcast and reminded myself that there was an ad. I did not know at what point. I thought that I had mentally prepared myself. I was just drifting off to sleep when the voices again began. I shrieked Jesus Fucking Christ as I leapt from bed. The cats were certain that something was very very wrong. With me.

I settled back down and again was drifting off when again the voices went off. I again screamed and that was it. Turned the podcast off.

Last night I thought about it and decided that I would look to see if there was an app that I could download. And there was. For Rain Sounds. I download it and settled down for the night. It only plays for 20 minutes so I do not need to set a timer. And best of there are no ads, ergo there are no more voices suddenly speaking to me when no one else is here.
