So, I got an e-mail on Saturday about my former bosses father dying. He was about 96 years old and been in a nursing home for the last couple of years. He also worked with me and up until 92 he drove himself to work everyday. That’s pretty impressive.
My old boss is a huge sports fan, he has season tickets to the Cubs, Sox and Blackhawks.
While I was working with him he always gave me tickets, almost once a week. Since I left my old job we kind of lost contact with each other so tickets have been fewer and farther between.
Now is it wrong form me to want to attend this funeral so that I may sneak in sports comments like. “Sorry your dad is dead, he was blessed with a long life, if you have any extra tickets this year give me a call”
How about these.
“Need some help with the casket? Got any extra tickets?
“He’s in a better place now, death is inevitable, what do you think about the new Cubs player?”
“Nice reception, the casket is beautiful, sooooo, huuuhhh, you going to any baseball games this year?”
“Hey were you planning on taking your dad to any games this year? Can I take his spot?”
If you guys have any better ways to bring up sports and tickets let me know.
I heard on the radio this morning that a hair stylist got shot yesterday for a bad hair cut.
That’s not funny at all…..ok, it’s a little funny. She got shot in the back while trying to run, she’s not dead. How is this woman ever going to work again, would you want to get your hair cut by the stylist that got shot for giving a bad haircut? She needs to find a new job. How can someone suck so bad at their job to provoke someone to shoot at them.
