Yesterday we were all in goofy moods. It was like it was a Friday on a Wednesday.
The telephone rang and it was for one of the staff. I've been known to tell the staff
"It's a *boy* on the phone for you " much like a eight year old little sister.
(we have a casual work environement, in case you hadn't noticed)
This time, I was very specific however "It's your ex-wife". I felt being specific was important in this instance.
Somehow, the person didn't hear the "ex" part.
Oh holy God.
I hear him answer the telephone "Hi Hon!"
*groan* This just isn't going to be good.
I actually felt the world slow down like in one of those stop-action scenes "Noooooooo..........."
I kind of hollered back to the breakroom where he was. "I said EX Wife!!! Ex! Ex! Ex!"
Luckily he took in with good humor, as did the ex-wife after she had time to recover.
That could have been ugly! But we got a good laugh out of it anyway.
