Tuesday Tickle

Real Estate Agent with Realty One Group # S.0190863

We had this really sweet receptionist in our Chula Vista Century 21 office way back when I worked there. Annabella Robles. What a great heart she had and she was a hard worker too. I always loved chatting with her when I got back to the office (back before we invented fire, we had phones that plugged into walls and people who wrote messages on paper) and picked up my messages.

 

One day I came to the desk to pick up my messages and have a friendly word and Annabella was absolutely beaming. She told me, “Guess what? They just hired a second receptionist and she has the same last name as mine!” Making a quick joke, I quipped, “Oh, nepotism, huh?”. Puzzled, she looked at me and said, “No, Robles”.

Rocky Dickerson - Thanks for the humor today. You may laugh, but I carry one phone in my purse and the other one is plugged into the wall - seriously! It's true

Hey there Patricia! I got rid of my plug in phone 17 years ago. But sometimes I wonder why

Rocky Dickerson - The good news is, I never lose my plug in phone to the wall! Unlike my cell phone, I can always find it and I know it's location.

Morning Rocky.

Everyone tells me my humor is soooo dry.  I think I'm a riot, but rarely does anyone laugh when I tell one.  Oh well, their loss, or would that be mine??????
