Oh I just couldn’t help it! This is one of the funniest picutres I have ever seen…and there is a story behind it. I was working for an design and installation company where I was the only female prodution manager, which was challenging at times, but I never let these challenges push me down; in fact, they only made me stronger. Well, one of my challenges was a certain young man who felt that I had no business being in this particular industry as a production manager and went as far as to tell me where I belong. A gently pulled him into my office and had a brief, VERY brief discussion with him. Um, look at the picture again….



Later that day I left for lunch and returned to this picture taped to my monitor with a sticky note that read,”We didn’t think you were hungry after the large breakfast you ate this morning”. LOL!!! I still have that sticky and I still have the picture. I would have shared the original pic BUT my version has a, um, well…a not so nice exclamation stated before “Pete” ;-) The gentlman who decided to challenge me? We became very good friends!



Hope you enjoyed the story…and, Debi, ssssshhhhhh! Let’s just keep THIS incedent out there and the rest to us ;-) LOL!!!
Hugs,
Laura

Angie- Oh my gosh! I love it that you have seen this before!! The first time I had seen it was on my monitor...then people started emailing it around so, by the time I got the email it was still funny but not as funny as when I got it.

Debi- Uhhhhh, yeah. I'll just say it before you do- I might...jut might have an issue with stupid people and, uuuummmm...well....yep.

Wagner and C. Vasquez. Oh, shit. I think I might have a problem!! HAHAHAHAHA!!!
