All In A Day’s Work……..



“Zelzee, I’m here for you to get me stimulated.”

The loud senior gentleman’s voice echoed in the vaulted ceiling lobby of my workplace.

Everyone within hearing distance came to an abrupt halt and turned to stare at me.  Even office doors opened so my coworkers could hear more clearly  what my dear elderly Mr. Senior had to say.

“Did you hear me?”

zelzee: “Actually, everyone within a five mile radius has heard you.”

“I haven’t got any stimulation like you gave everyone else, so I’m here to find out why I didn’t get any.”

zelzee: ” Excuse me!!!!”

“You got my buddy Ralph that stimulation, but not me!!”

zelzee:  “Actually, I think you are talking about the Economic Stimulus Recovery money  from the Federal government.  It was not me that sent it out.  It was the $250 you received in May.  Stimulus………..government…………….”

“Oh, okay then.  Have a good day.”

Sorta gives a whole new perspective to Public Services, doesn’t it?

    Although I received my stimulation, I’m going to require more.

    This post was hilarious!

    Good thing that was cleared up before all the Seniors heard you were giving out stimulation!

    It’s a good thing you clarified that for everyone in the room. Not sure if servicing octogenarians beyond routine public service help should be on the menu.

    Your “services” almost got very popular! Good thing you rectified things before you had 90 year old men lined up around the corner!!

    ohhhh zelzee… man. when i worked at the bank during the time they issued the stimulus package. WOW.

    the same person would call me 5 times a day asking, “ummmmm yea. did i get my stimulation yet?” then the next time they’d be embarrassed to ask so they’d try to be sly like, “yea. can you check and see if anything came in to my account from Bush?”

    it was ridiculous.
