Snark Attack

A few years ago, I worked with a young man with a huge drinking problem. That probably would have been tolerated but he was marginal at best as a salesman. He did, however, put me down as hard as anyone in my life.

I bumped into him the other day and was reminded of that day.

I was getting some crap about my expanding waistline from several co workers. Wanting to shut them up I said,

 “When you have a magnificent tool, you need to protect it with a shed roof”.

There was a moment of silence then he said,

 “Especially if it is an antique and doesn’t work anymore”.


Since murder was off the table, all I could do was laugh.

Do you wonder where my blogger name comes from?

  1. I will have to share the shed remark with my hubby who has a rather impressive dome himself. :)

    1. He laughed. And, in a characteristic Eric move, asked me if I'd like to view the tool.

      The rest of the story will not appear in print.

  2. Now in my elder years and a bevy of doctors with accompanying lectures, I remind them of the fun I had getting into the shape I am now!

    1. Mine just tells me to stop getting old. Need to see the cardiologist next month to get the pacemaker charged.
