~ Caring Husband ~

by Tina~in_ut

Several men are in the locker room of a golf club. A cellular phone on a bench rings and a man engages the hands-free speaker function and begins to talk. Everyone else in the room stops to listen.


MAN: "Hello."

WOMAN: "Hi Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?"

MAN: "Yes."

WOMAN: "I'm at the shops now and found this beautiful leather coat. It's only $2,000. Is it OK if I buy it?"

MAN: "Sure, go ahead if you like it that much."

WOMAN: "I also stopped by the Lexus dealership and saw the new models. I saw one I really liked."

MAN: "How much?"

WOMAN: "$90,000."

MAN: "OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."

WOMAN: "Great! Oh, and one more thing. I was just talking to Janie and found out that the house I wanted last year is back on the market. They're asking $980,000 for it."

MAN: "Well, then go ahead and make an offer of $900,000. They'll probably take it. If not, we can go the extra eighty-thousand if it's what you really want."

WOMAN: "OK. I'll see you later! I love you so much!"

MAN: "Bye! I love you, too."

The man hangs up. The other men in the locker room are staring at him in astonishment, mouths wide open.

He turns and asks, "Anyone know whose phone this is?"

Bebbi said...

Something's up with blogger..good thing I have my super secret back up id.

Bebbi said...

Oh yes, this is fun...I can comment to myself..and answer myself because no one else can comment..because Blogger is being a bad, bad blogger today..

goldie said...

Good Morning Bebbi!

Blog was very funny.

Ok, spill Bebbi. I want to be a secret shopper, how did you get into that???

Bebbi said...

Goldie: It's easy..marketforce is the one I work for the most.

They have several..

Service Sleuth,
Intellishop
Measure Consumer Perspectives
KSS International
Market Force

Those are ones that are legitimate. They don't pay a lot but it's convenient for a little extra money because you can do them as you want to.

Bebbi said...

There are other companies that are legitimate too.

You should never EVER have to PAY to sign up for a company to mystery shop.

goldie said...

Thanks Bebbi. Sounds interesting to me. I would NEVER pay ~ I am always amazed at the amount of people who fall for the lottery scam. They "win" a foreign lottery and have to send money to claim it.

It does seem to be a tad quiet in the nest! We have the place to ourselves.

Bebbi said...

I had trouble logging on under my regular log in this morning, maybe others are having similar problems. It's working fine now though.

It did. I couldn't get on last night for two hours. I wonder what the problem is. I must go read Tina's blog.

Tinka said...

Good Morning Bebbi and Bebbi and Bebbi and Goldie. Let's see if this posts.

Tinka said...

That's a good one Tina.

Goldie - Did Bebbi explain what a mystery shopper is? I still don't understand. Tell me what you do Bebbi.

Bebbi said...

Tink: I go into stores..and follow the scenarios to see how the employees interact with customers. Sometimes the scenarios are very specific, other times they are more general. I will either make a purchase or not, depending on the assignment. I am reimbursed for the purchase in most cases and if they don't reimburse then I can return the item.

Tinka said...

from area 51

Maureen - Congratulation on your raise. You deserve it.
It was sweet of you to call me "gem". I don't think I have ever been called that before.

Whabbear - Have you finished
"A Man on the Moon: The Voyages of the Apollo Astronauts"? It sounds interesting. I love stories about space. They intrigue me.

Tinka said...

Off to my farms. I have fed the "fur babies". I can wait for a while for breakfast. Have a great Thursday.

goldie said...

Thanks you Bebbi~ I will check it out.

Mo- CONGRATS on your great review and raise. It is always nice to be recognized for doing a good job!

Morning Tink!

Zona said...

Good Morning!

TINA: HA!! That'll learn him! Obviously the owner of the phone didn't spend enough time talking to his wife or she would have known it wasn't his voice right away..serves him right that someone else just told her to spend $1,072,000 of his money! Maybe he'll be more attentive in the future!! ;D!!

Cute joke..thanks for the bleary eyed giggle this morning!

BEBBI: Good Morning Sunshine! Mystery Shopping sounds fun..I got a check in the mail from some place that wanted me to be a shopper..I shredded it because it sounded too good to be true..now I wonder if it was for real..prolly not though..I mean we're talking about MY luck here!! :D

btw..I just love Cyrano!

GOLDIE: I thought you wrote that it was a tad quiet in the nest so we had to 'pace' ourselves..lol.. ;)

TINKA: I had the same problem with Blogger last night..it said it was going to be down for maintenance for an hour..but it was impossible to get in for a lot longer than that.

I'm off to join TINKA on the farm..all the live long day..oh wait..that's the railroad.. ;D

Tinka said...

Good Morning Zona-my-baby - I haven't found you on the farms yet. Between the two of us we have so many farms it's hard to track someone down.

Tinka said...

Zona - You are pretty smart. It didn't dawn on me that the wife didn't recognize the man's voice. You would make a good detective.

I think blogger is still acting up. That's the only reason I can think of that would keep Michael out of the nest.

Mo: Way to go on the raise and good review!! Great job! :)

Bebbi said...

Zona: You did right by shredding it..it is a scam.

Michael said...

Belle is trying to attack the thunder....hope she gets me a piece...need it for a potion...

I am going to relax and enjoy the day without electronic enhancements...I'm going to play with my voodoo dolls...

sendings limp (((())))'s....warm angels....blank thoughts and eye of newt..(overstocked)

Just_Lin said...

Michael I used to have a cat named Newt. I hope you aren't sending one of her eyes. :(

Just_Lin said...

Bebbi Congrats on first. You are the fairest in the land. Maybe Blogger is keeping Tina in a closet.

Just_Lin said...

Goldie Can you tell if the super antibiotics are making a difference yet? I had my surgery follow up appt yesterday and all healed well. The bad news is that I just finished a 10 day course of antibiotics for the infected salivary gland and I ended up with a yeast infection! Fortunately, that requires just one pill and some topical ointment just to make it feel better. I feel better already.

Just_Lin said...

Tinka Good morning. Did you have breakfast yet? I need to think about something to eat. All I've had is coffee.

Zona said...

HI J/LIN!! :)

Zona said...

BEBBI: Whew!! :)

TINKA: Just call me Sherlock-baby..lol..

MICHAEL: I thought you said you put those things away!! I guess I won't be walking around much today..just in case.. ;)

Just_Lin said...

My Mother's Day flowers finally arrived today. The little card says "Delivery date 5/7". Hahahahaha! I hope my daughter gets a refund. I think delivering 5 days late is a little ridiculous. If they were that busy, they shouldn't have taken any more orders.

Just_Lin said...

Zona Waving a wing at you!

Tinka said...

Blogger is acting up again.

Just_Lin said...

Dianne from Area 51. I went to Boise in Feb. and we had a road trip. Now we are meeting on Monday in SoCal in our home town. Spending 5 days together then he goes home and I stay another 5 days at my Mom's. Good thing my yeast problem only required one pill to cure. :)

Tinka said...

Well it's working now.

Just_Lin - Good Morning. Yes I have had my breakfast. I am now going to get my doggies fed, my Slim Fast and off for my nap.

Just_Lin said...

Tinka Put Blogger on the naughty mat for a time out.

bbl I have a hair appt today.

Tinka said...

Zona - I knew you were smart - like daughter like mother. Fun talking to you this morning.

Just_Lin said...

Tinka said...

Just_Lin - I hope by now you have had more than just coffee. I don't know what time it is where you are but it is almost noon here.

Tinka said...

Michael - Enjoy your day of relaxation and beware of the voodoo dolls. They can do a lot of harm. Take care.

Bebbi said...

J/L: It must be keeping Tina away.. thanks for the 'fairest in the land" comment. I have a date tonight..so maybe he'll treat me like the princess I am! he he...

Michael..hoping I am not on the voodoo doll list... big hugs and a kiss on your eye of newt.
