Poor FedEx guy

I was working this morning when the FedEx delivery guy walked in with a 7-foot high box. As I'm supposed to do, I walked around my reception desk to inspect the box for damage. I saw nothing wrong and he handed me his electronic tracking device to sign and said, "Looks good."

I was still signing and said, "And we love when our boxes look good, don't we?"

It wasn't until I looked up as I was handing back his pen that I realized what I'd said.

Oy.

Ya just cant make things up like this SML. Your post gave me the biggest laugh of my day. If I had been that Fed Ex guy Im sure I would have come up with a good response. I would have never let that sleeping dog lie. (Or is it "lay?"

Oh mi gosh too funny. Once during the holiday season... on air... I said "And now Barenaked Ladies, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen." Which is all good and well, unless you work with the crew I do.

Something tell me you will be seeing the FedEx guy again soon. What will you say to him?

Sister Mary Lisa said...

Equality ~

Next time I see him, I might say to him, "You really seem to know how to handle a package with care." Ha.

Equality said...

Or perhaps, "My what a big package you have, Mr. FedEx guy." (blinking eyes rapidly).
