Sunday I was visiting my Aunt and my cousin. We had a great conversation, but somehow it led to people trying to take advantage of others' ignorance. That reminded me of a funny story, which I shared with them, and will now share with you!
My dad had been dead for two years (not funny yet, please bear with me) when the manager for a hardware store he used to frequently pick up supplies for a building he used to work in called and said dad had just been in admiring some power tools. This was about two weeks before Father's Day.
Manager: You are the daughter Frank ________, right?
HRM: Yes, I am. (I am still his daughter!)
Manager: He was recently in our store admiring this new drill set we got in..
HRM: How recently?
Manager: Last week, I think...
HRM: YOU MEAN HE HASN'T SEEN ME IN TWO YEARS, BUT HE IS IN TOWN AND IMMEDIATELY GOES TO YOUR HARDWARE STORE!
Manager: Uh, uh, ....
HRM: WELL, I AM NOT GETTING HIM ANYTHING FOR FATHER'S DAY THIS YEAR. MAYBE THAT WILL TEACH HIM TO COME VISIT ME THE NEXT TIME HE RISES FROM THE DEAD!
This led to one of my life motto's, don't get even, get obnoxiously funny!
(Remind me to tell you someday what I said to the person selling prearranged funerals when they wouldn't leave us alone...)
