Fun Friday with a little help from my friends....














One Day Employment (Thanks Jerry)

So, after landing my new job as a Wal-Mart greeter, a good find for many retirees, I lasted less than a day....

About two hours into my first day on the job a very loud, unattractive, mean-acting woman walked into the store with her two kids, yelling obscenities at them all the way through the entrance.

I said pleasantly, 'Good morning and welcome to Wal-Mart. Nice children you have there. Are they twins?'

The ugly woman stopped yelling long enough to say, 'Heck no, they ain't twins. The oldest one's 9, and the other one's 7. Why the heck would you think they're twins? Are you blind, or stupid?'

So I replied, 'I'm neither blind nor stupid, Ma'am, I just couldn't believe someone slept with you twice. Have a good day and thank you for shopping at Wal-Mart.'

My supervisor said I probably wasn't cut out for this line of work.



Thanks Daughter.

A perfect post for a Friday! Thank you for sharing-

Jill said...

Happy Friday, Sandie and congratulations on your well deserved award!

Sandra said...

bob says the hippos sounds more like a dirt bike than a chain saw, and we both are rolling on the floor laughing at the Walmart Greeter, that is something my hubby would say and we often joke about how he could not be a greeter.

Jane said...

Great post for friday,or any day,as always made me smile! I took the test and made a 15,so you beat me!

Blessings Jane

Jane said...

I meant to say congratulations on the award,you deserve it !

Munir said...

The award is well deserved - Congrats.
The job in Walmart ? I am sure that your are a fine associate / greeter. Sometimes we end up thinking loudly and the consequences are inevitable. If your ER had a little sense of humor, you would have been an asset. Am I right?

Lynn said...

I also got 17 right - that was a fun test. :)

Maple Lane said...

A fun Friday post! Wishing you a nice weekend.

Jim said...

Good Friday post again, Sandie! :)
You for sure saved up the whole week, probably a lot more than one weeks 'junk' in reserve, huh?

I beat you by four with a 21. Guessed at four and missed two of those. I could swear (I won't, I don't swear) that our merry-go-round goes clockwise but it doesn't. [see KP's Fun at the Woodlands Mall.] I thought that your author of the quiz must have been from the Sourhtern Hemisphere or a lefty. Ha, LOL!

Jim said...

p.s. I am going to steal this one but not for today. I'm laying low and doing some house work. Also have to find a rehab place that does good on repaired compressed T-12 discs.

I hope your Friday stays happy!

Now, I'm off to take that think test. I hope it doesn't... um... chainsaw at me too.

Great post, Sandie. Lots to chuckle over.

I got 11 in the quiz so you beat me by a LOT~!

Take care and have a good rest of the day! Susan

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Oh my on that hippo!!!

Belle said...

Loved the hippo pooping! Never saw that before. I took the test and got a 16, one less than you. It was fun. The Walmart joke was funny, I think it would be very hard to be a greeter. It isn't just the people, you have to stand there for so long.

My Journey With Candida said...

Holy Cow, that Hippo was so funny. I even saw the wood chips flying.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Congrats on your award. You are very deserving. You made me smile, as always. Loved the Wonderful World. That song alone makes me smile.

Thisisme. said...

Great post to end the week with my friend! Loved the one about he couldn't believe that someone had slept with her twice! Hee Hee!! Really enjoyed the funnies today, and loved your rose coloured spectacles at the beginning. Hugs.

Ginny said...

Love the hand shadows!!! Hey, I gave you that award, did Marie give it to you as well?? Gosh, it's getting hard to keep up! Well, double congrats!

Crystal Mary said...

SOooooooo funny, laughed and laughed, your such a treat Sandie...did that man really tell that Wal Mart woman that? LOL

Sally said...

I love Fridays for the smiles you bring to us. Already heard the one about the WM greeter, but it makes me laugh every time. I wouldn't make it as one either. :)

✿ⒹⒺⒺ✿@ A Lapin Life said...

Hi Sandie,

The Hippo was pretty funny.

The test was harder than I thought it would be.

Very cute hand shadows!

Congratulations on the award.

How sweet of you to give me one too.

xo,
Dee

SweetMarie said...

You've got some good ones today gf! The wal-mart greeter story is so funny!

Thank you for the laughs - much appreciated. I especially like the Walmart greeter story.

Ann said...

I'm still laughing over the video with the hippo.
Took the quiz and got 14 out of 25, guess the brain isn't as far gone as I thought :)

^..^Corgidogmama said...

You are one silly nut Sandie! We love that about you! Love your new header!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

HI Sandie, My favorite thing today was the story about the Walmart Greeter. AWESOME.

Hugs,
Betsy

Grandma Bonnie said...

Congratulations on the award. I loved the quiz.

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

I always love coming here, Sandie. Love the WalMart joke -- how I would love to use that line someday (but I'm too nice, or shy -- so I probably never will!)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

LOL!! LOVE the quote your daughter sent you! Too funny... too true! Have a great weekend, Sandie! blessings ~ tanna

Shadow puppets, oh to have such talent,

Andrew said...

Haha!.. A wonderful post xx.
I laughed out loud at the hippo clip and the Walmart tale..
Hugs Drew xx

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

haha!!
thanks for the good laugh!

happy weekend, my dearest!

Sharon said...

The hippo - disgusting. I also saw that in real life once. Yes, it does sound like that. Still disgusting.

I also got 17 out of 25. But I am embarrassed at the ones I got wrong. For instance, the whole traffic light thing. I guessed wrong on where the green light is - might explain a lot of those red lights that I seem tempted to run!

The hand shadow thing was awesome. I loved the singing bunny.

:)
