I am fuming. I have a three day weekend and want to get some things done around my house but the home repair people I've called do not want to work all weekend because, get this, it's LABOR DAY! Duh! When did people get so DUMB? That's what I want them to do - just some general labor. Sheesh, would love to go back to a simpler time when people said what they meant!
Dear Loved Labor Days Lost,
You called Helen's place of work this week, didn't you? You did. I know it. There were at least three people who had this very idea and tried to get their way by being ugly. A short talk with Helen changed their minds.
|We don't like to use the B word around here but sometimes that's exactly what we're talking about -- and we also use it to mean a female dog, too.|
|And old find and a recent one - the pink glittery one clearly once held a roll of note paper but the dispenser was long ago glued in place - so I use it to prop up business cards. The other - not sure what it was supposed to be, but I have run a cord through the holes and use it as a cell phone charging station.|
My Only Pink for Pink Saturday today!!
|What is this hard cold stuff in your drinks, Betty? Ice? You MUST give me the recipe!|
|We wasn't arranging these flowers and listening to Mantovani while discussin' African fertility art in dis dimly lit room, doll, I swear. We was cussin' and fightin' like REAL men.|
...and women were... spoken to like children.
|Please Mommie, won't you please remember to feed us bread? We're so tired of eating peanut butter and jelly with our hands!|
What else could this ad have meant with the tag line 'So round, so firm, so fully packed - so free and easy on the draw', hmm?
|No, really, this is NOT a photo of Helen lounging around on a late summer evening -- but I can see why you'd think that!|
|Silly me, when he asked if I wanted to ride his magic rocket to the moon, I thought he meant sex!|
That's right - it's an ad for Oldsmobile! How could you not have thought big old gas guzzling car when you saw that? So I get how you could resent people NOT laboring on Labor Day just for you.
|Hello. I am an official representative of The Universe and I'm here to let you know that you are mistaken.We do NOT revolve around you.|
|At the Flea Market: I've never in my whole life seen anything like that, Aunt Myrtle-Mae, have you? Seen one? Honey, I have it in every color and one in black leather with leopard print trim!|
|I guess I should have been more clear when I told the designer I wanted he bathroom to be a cozy place to "do our business".|
So I'm saying - enjoy your weekend, plain and simple. And if you want someone to work through a holiday weekend... call someone ELSE!
