The Quick Learner

While shopping earlier in the week, I witnessed a woman take a bar stool and two mugs to the return counter. Here’s the exchange.

Clerk: Is there something wrong with the bar stool?

Customer: Yes, the foot rest is on the back. The other one I bought, the foot rest was on the side. We could deal with that by putting our feet to the side. But in the back? Our feet don’t reach back there.

Clerk: I see. Let me ask one of my co-workers to take a look to see if there’s anything we can do. Kelly? Could you look at this?

Kelly checked the stool, then called over Mary. They tipped the chair, examining it closely for some kind of solution. Then they called Joe from the back.

When Joe arrived up front, he obviously noticed the expression on the three women’s faces. He seriously listened to the problem, tipped the chair again, made a few adjustments, and miraculously fixed the chair. The customer was appreciative and amazed. He was laughing as he walked away.

Clerk: Did you still want to return the stool?

Customer: No.

Clerk: What about the mugs?

Customer: I’ve decided to keep them, too.

Clerk: Was there anything wrong with them?

Customer: I thought they were left handed mugs, but I can work with that now.

Some people might laugh at that customer but I, always seeing the bright side, have a different conclusion: that lady is a quick learner.

Fly Ball

Isn't that supposed to be a baseball?

Isn’t that supposed to be a baseball?

I recently attended a professional conference. Because I spend most of my time working from home in clothes that should never be seen in public, I had to find a professional looking outfit to wear.

With a nice jacket and pair of pants in hand, the only thing left was shoes.

Since I keep things forever, finding a pair of shoes was easy – a black pair of clogs. They were old but looked nice because I hadn’t worn them much.

I was ready to go.

When I arrived at the conference, a friend and I found a seat before the first speaker went to the podium.

The presentation was terrific – it was going to be a nice morning.

About halfway through, I left to use the restroom. As I was walking down the hall, I felt something strange on my feet. When I got to the bathroom, I looked down and was shocked to see that the top of my shoe had separated from the sole and was being held together by a single thread.

I wasn’t sure what I was going to do. I thought about asking for a rubber band to hold the shoe together, but it would stand out since the shoes were black. There was one thread still intact, so I curled my toes and kept walking.

Fortunately, my shoe stayed on through the end of the conference and all the way back to the car.

As we were leaving, I showed my friend what had happened only to discover that both shoes had fallen apart.

The bright side? I finally threw something out when I got home. Woohoo!
