On Me

"Oops. Sorry."

I looked at the bowl of blue cheese dressing dripping down my shirt, then at the waitress who'd spilled it on me. I had a meeting tonight so I was wearing a nice shirt. "It's okay," I said.

We were out for the annual Administrative Professionals Day lunch. The woman sitting across from me bit her lip, began to giggle, then buried her face in the napkin. So did the woman sitting next to her.

"Sorry," the waitress said again. "Can I get you anything?"

"I'm afraid to ask, but could you bring me some more dressing?"

"Do you really want me to?" the waitress asked.

Two more of the women at the table put down their forks and started laughing.

"Yes, please," I said.

"I'm kind of a klutz," said the waitress.

"Seriously. Don't worry about it," I told her.

She stood up and banged her head on a lamp. "Ouch," she said, rubbing her skull. "I'm not very good at this job."

The rest of the table started laughing as I dabbed at the stain with a napkin.

My boss said, "I guess lunch is on Snag today."

"He's funny," the waitress said, pointing at my boss.

"A real laugh riot," I said.

And then Snag's boss is sending me on another trip. Stay tuned for tonight's hilarious episode of Snag in Hell.

I believe your boss should be expecting to wake to a bunny head in his bed.

Or maybe a macro ferret head.

Extra cup of scalding hot coffee please.

Poor Snag... he thought he bought enough indulgences, but apparently not. Back to purgatory for you, m'dear.

Can't wait to see the duvet.
