Most of you know that I am an amputee, not related to my diabetes. Any way a young man came to my door selling something and my little dogs were barking (chihuahua mixes, rescues) so I rolled out on to the porch. This guy made a remark about my dogs barking and I told him they were “ankle biters” meaning little ones. He asked me it that was what happened to my leg and I told him Yes, and that it took them about a week. He didn’t say a word just left. Haven’t seen him since. Yes I know that was bad of me, but. This was an adult.
Now that’s a creative way to deal with door to door salesmen !
I appreciate your post making me laugh. My husband and I big on adopting recipes and appreciate it when they let us know someone is at our door. We have an American Staffordshire Terrier, that we rescued nine years ago, and when she barks, excitedly, we find the person at the other end of our short walkway.
I totally love it! I’m all about macabe humor anyway.
OK you asked for it. Back in 2000 I died after ankle surgery, spent 12 1/2 min with the Man. Anyway came back with a list. About 4 years ago Fed Ex came by with a prescription. a cute little black guy, said hi and Bye anyway he came back 3 days later with the balance of my RX and he was wearing a Blinged out Superman medallion I asked him about it and he told me he had died twice during heart surgery, told him I had died and started to tell him about the list I brought back, he told me he knew all about my list, told him that when I do something on the list I hear a (wanted to say bell) but he told me that was the bell of confirmation, haven’t seen him since ,entertaining angels unaware? What do you think? Have a great day. Bye Jan
This is hilarious!! I’m reading this in bed and I just woke my husband cause I was laughing out loud!
Elissa, I am assuming you are referring to the salesman, and not the other story…My husband laughed when I told him. It was funny and I felt so bad for the guy because he was so serious. I had a little boy about 5 asked me if I had any kids and I said no, but I had dogs and he said “do they bite?” I said no, but to him that would make perfect sense, told him it was just an accident…He was ok with that, he was just looking for an explanation not a story. If kids ask I just tell them it was an accident, if I say it was because I died and the body does not like to come back that is too scary and if I say anything about my foot dying then if anything shows up on their foot they’ll get scared or if they get a sore on their foot I don’t want them to be frightened., an accident is much better for little ones… Have a great day. Bye Jan Ps: maybe you should read these things during the day, just kidding.
Omg that is so funny too bad you didn’t have a camera on him, the look on his face must have been priceless!!!
Hi Jan! The Man Above gave you something very important and no, it does not come in a bottle either. You have a great sense of humor
Hi, I am not sure he knew I was kidding. To add to the hilarity, I bought a new T-shirt ( I had to, no one else would) and it says “this leg is taking a lot longer that I expected to grow back” Call it wishful thinking. or a great conversation starter. Bye Jan
Marilyn, I am working very hard to keep up my end of the bargain, I win some of the battles (list stuff) and I think my average is more wins than losses. As I told another person, I bought 2 new t-shirts one says “this leg is taking a lot longer than I expected to grow back” the other says “are you staring at me because I’m an amputee or because I’m sexy” Had to buy them for myself I couldn’t get anyone else to do it. Answer to the staring one seems to be “Both” from those answering. All my Docs think I have lost my mind but they love me anyway. Have a great day. Bye Jan
Spring, you mean rescues and not recipes right? Except rescuing recipes is too funny, thanks for the laugh. PS: I’ll tell you what I have told others lately, I bought 2 new t-shirts, one says “this leg is taking a lot longer than I expected to grow back” and the other one says “are you staring at me because I’m an amputee or because I’m sexy” the general answer is “Both” and yes I had to buy them myself, couldn’t get any one else to do it. have a great day, Bye jan
You are welcome! I didn’t understand until I read my response to you and it brightened up my evening.
Hi Jan – I haven’t been able to find you on FB. How is your schedule looking this week? Would you like to meet for brunch/lunch/ or anything? How is Thursday for you this week?
