Here's Your Sign


 
Do y'all remember this?
 
Bill Engvall and his "Here's your sign" jokes about stupid things that you do.
 
Well I've got one for you today....
 
shocked aren't you (sarcasm)..
 
 
Embarrassing work moment #5...........I was paying bills. This particular bill had an "important"

stamp at the bottom of the page and the stamp said.."send remittance to" and then right under that it

 had foreign language

 words and a Tennessee address. So I carefully copied the foreign language words and made my
 
check out to them but I decided I better call and make sure it went to someone with a foreign
 
language name. So I called the number at the top of the page with the company name not in a foreign
 
 language and I repeated to the girl what was written and I asked was I suppose to send my check to
 
the foreign language name. I told her the language looked French but I didn't know. I could tell she
 
 was trying to keep from laughing and she said "Well I don't know much Spanish but I do know what
 
 this says....(and I'm already thinking....darn it....got the language wrong) and I ask what does it say?
 
 And she said "Under the words "send remittance to" it says in Spanish.........."send remittance to" so
 
 no...don't write your check to "send remittance to".... Oh I could feel her smiling all the way through
 
 the phone. So I'm sputtering..well you can see how confusing that is and she is saying yes, yes...that
 
is confusing (smirk).

The End

I am glad I am not alone in those glorious moments.

I fell off the porch this week...I think somewhere in that story is a "Here's your sign".

Have a great weekend.
