My husband has accepted a position at a new engineering firm. I am really sad to see him leave his job of over eight years because he has enjoyed it all these years, but a growing family and things such as BILLS drove him to interview in search of a salary increase. He has had a couple of extra days at home before he begins his new job on Monday. We’ve spent our time with Dad at doctor’s appointments, car repairs, and shopping for some much needed work clothes for him.
It was as we pulled into our driveway from one of these errands that Jason’s phone rang. He put the vehicle in park, fumbled through his jean pockets, and finally got to the phone as it stopped ringing. He pushed the button, but didn’t hear anyone. He didn’t know who it was, but dialed back anyway leaving a message saying that he was returning the call. He pushed the button to end the connection.
“It stinks in here. Does someone have diarrhea?” I called out loudly toward the back of the van as only a mom does.
It was then that my husband heard something coming from his phone. “Hello?” he answered. It was Jason’s new employer who was, as it turned out, still very much on the line!
Oh Esther! It never ever fails with you guys. That is hysterical. But, I must say…something that would happen with me and my mouth.
When Dave started his new job 5 years ago, He got a Blackberry. I’d never seen one in real life, so I was dinking around with it. Come to find out, I sent an email to everyone in his office. Nice.

Christina @ Keeping Home says
Bwahahahaha! That is hysterical! I wish I’d been there to hear it, lol! I’ve had people dial me without realizing it and once I overheard a friend of mine talking about an order she was placing, lol!
Thanks so much for linking up to the “Making Your Home Sing Monday” linky party today! 🙂

Kendra @ AProverbs 31 Wife says
Way too funny! I remember as a teen thinking once or twice that these people who film comedy shows needed to meet my family. I was the oldest of 6 kids and there was always something crazy going on. I bet they should meet your family too 😉
This is tooooooooooo funny!! Thanks for giving me a good belly laugh!!!
Oh my, well, you can be comforted by the observation that God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. And that was definitely humbling 🙂 Visiting from Hungry for God . . . Starving for Time and glad I did.
