Work was a Riot!!

Do you ever have those days when everything that is said has a funny undertone?? I have no idea why the ladies in the office were punch drunk yesterday! Maybe it was because it has been hot and very busy!!
All I know is we laughed and laughed yesterday and it was fun at work for the first time in months!
Here is one thing that was said.. I know this is not politically correct but please take it with a grain of salt. When you work where I work we all have this morbid sense of humor... I am sure it has popped out on the blog once in a while.... anyway here goes.
A man walked into our Police Station to report there was a couch sitting the middle of the road. I told him ok I will report it to the dispatcher. He walks out. I get on the speaker telephone and start telling the dispatcher about the complaint. She asks the following questions....I quote "What color is it?" I reply Blue.. Which lane of traffic? What direction of travel? ..... then she asks " Anyone injured?" Ok now here is where my smart azz friend in the back ground says .. "I don't know we didn't ask how many are sitting on it." Oh my goodness everyone started cracking up... because my personal image was an old broken down Red Neck truck with a couch in the back with a bunch of people sitting on it. Just like the Beverly Hillbillies My brain image was.... The driver stomped on the gas to pass and the couch flew out the back tail gate... now ladies that is what flashed in my brain.. Sorry can't help it.. I have watched too many movies!!!! I laughed and laughed until I though I would pee my pants..
I am sorry if this offended any of my readers... I could not help myself in posting this.. I am still laughing about the stupid questions the dispatcher has to ask....  but it is required.. as a matter of routine.. for every ones needs.

No offense at all, M! A funny post, and I have to laugh, because my own brain tends to steer towards movies and songs all the time! It's just how I'm wired I guess, but all in good fun, right?! Glad to see your blog is up and running again! Have a great weekend! ~tina

OMG! I can't get past the "What color is it?" Like....there are so many couches lying around on roads that you have to ask what color? "It's blue. Ignore the red one and the brown one - they both have permits to be in the middle of the road...the blue one didn't obtain a 'couch-in-road' permit." LOL! Thanks APP for making me laugh today!

Haha - my Word Verification is "qable." I had a HECK of a time trying to type that without putting a "u" after the "q" :-)

Oh my Goodness!
Well, they do need to ask all those questions so there's no mistake...ha ha ha! I'm a retired 369 ... boy it was a rare 24 year ride. You're right when you say whenever we laughed it was "pee" your pants time for sure....
