    I was in the habit of being Late for work at one time* and a particular foreman used to enjoy telling me I was late every time. One morning he started again and I stopped him and said “no I’m not late I’m early for tomorrow, because I wasn’t coming in today!” He was quite speechless trying to work out just what I’d said. Ha!

    (* I had a dog who repeatedly got out of the garden just before I was to leave home for work and I’d have to spend quite a while tracking her down and returning her before I could set off for work. Very annoying.)

    I received one of those compensation phone calls about working in heavy industry. They claimed that they had on record that i’d been working in heavy industry for many years.  I asked if they had the right person, but they assured me that I was the person they were looking for.  Ok! I said.  But I think you should know that I was born with Cerebral Palsy, and don’t you think it might have been a tad dangerous for me work in such a place considering I can’t do buttons up on my blouse?  Well! You could feel the uncomfortable realisation through the phone.  Talk about being tongue-tied and spluttering.  I am ashamed to say I found it highly amusing.
