All In A Day’s Work……..

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009



“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?


Driving Me Crazy

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009



My seniors have the uncanny ability to always keep me on my toes.

Senior:  “Zelzee, I want to sign up for that AARP driving class.”

Zelzee:  “The one in June or the one in July.”

Senior:  “The one you’re having.”

Zelzee:   “I have one every month.  I just don’t know which one you want to take.”

Senior:  “I want to take the one that has the free coffee and donuts, and there’s a film to watch in the dark, so I can get some sleep.  Then because I am still breathing by the end of the stuffy class, and you know it’s always too  gosh darn hot in that room anyway, well, then I get some dang piece of paper and I save all kinds of money on insurance.  And make sure I have a parking place close to the door, because I don’t walk too good anymore without my walker. Oh, and I want to be up front ’cause I don’t see worth a dam either!”

Zelzee:  “But when do you want to come to the class.”

Senior:  “I just told you.  Weren’t you listening?”

Zelzee:  “June it is.”

And there is not one doubt in my mind they parked their car right next to mine…………….
