Cemetary Humor

I have been trying to get an appointment for Zoe concerning her hip. Her doctor said if she wasn't feeling better in 2 weeks to take her to a Orthopedic, so I have been going up and back with the doc's office for a number to an ortho. Finally today, after 4 phone calls and a letter in the mail for local orthopedic hand specialists, I got two numbers to try.

So, I call the first one I have marked down and the conversation goes something like this:

Him: "Good Morning, Potomac blah, blah, blah" I'm not exactly listening as I am looking at my calendar for when a good appt. time will be.

Me: "Hi, is this the Potomac Orthopedic Office?"

Him: "No, this is the cemetery."

Me: "Oh, Oops, guess I dialed the wrong number!"

Him: " That's ok, and if things don't work out over there, you already have our number!"

Me: (laughing) "Hey! That's not funny!"

Him: (chuckling) "I know, but I couldn't help myself!"

So, I dial the correct number and all I get is a busy signal. I would much rather joke around with the cemetery guy than deal with this right now! Argh.

At least you have a sense of humor! I hate when I don't pay attention and have so much on my mind. Tim is an internet support tech so he always has some fun stories to tell. LOL Hope you get the correct number.

I guess you'd have to have a sense of humor to work at a cemetery :-)

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
