Rants and Raves

There is a weekly column in the Seattle Times called Rants and Raves. It’s basically an opportunity for anyone to write in and submit a rant or rave for the week. One caught my eye this week that was particularly funny! I could not help but share.

Rave: To the nice employee at Swanson's Nursery who came up quietly behind me and said in a low voice, "Ma'am, you'll have to return to the restroom — you have a long trail of toilet paper hanging out the back." Indeed, I did — at least 2 feet long. I applaud her graciousness and thank her for making me painfully snicker at myself.

One of the reasons I find this particularly funny is because it reminded me of an incident with a former boss. We had an early morning meeting on our calendars with a group of regulators. Before we headed to the meeting we both took the opportunity to use the restroom. I come out of the restroom to see my boss half the way down the hall just about ready to greet the folks we are meeting with and to my horror - the skirt she was wearing was completely tucked into her pantyhose! It was hilarious! I was mooned by my boss! Fortunately I was able to catch up with her before she reached our guests! It still makes me laugh just as much today as it did on the day it happened!

I think I will continue to post a “rant or rave” on a periodic basis.
