"oh boo" moment #62 3/4

here awhile back, my husband was at a meeting with the big money guys on a couple of big jobs they have going.

one of the big money guys takes his goofy dog everywhere he goes - guess you can do that when you have all the money.

to make a short story long - they're sitting roundtable style and the biggest money guy puts his hand down beside his chair and starts stroking what he believes to be his mutt - lo and behold, it was the wide-eyed, unsuspecting guy's knee next to him!

when he realized what he was doing he hollered, "OH SH*T! i thought that was my dog!"

needless to say, everybody in the room went into full uproar and when everything calmed down, my husband's top supervisor (a big-big (6'4"), rugged yet distinguished guy) says to the big money man, "can i sit by you?"

oh boo...

addendum:

this big rugged supervisor also loves to cook cajun style - he and my husband share recipes online - last week he sent home some "shrimp etouffee" for our family...

oh boo...

here is the type of recipe my husband creates:

Dumb Ass (excuse my language)

Take 1 operater

Add 1 company truck
Add in options for wich type of equipment operater wants to play on
Throw in a few extra tools that are necessary for operater to make grade
Now quickly add in operator's overtime
Allow four weeks to see one week of production
Mix these ingredients together then stand back,it's fixin' to blow up in your face!!!

Now take a 55 gallon barrel of DUMB ASS extract and pour it on the seat of an open air D-4 and place it on a job site, cutting final grade in Fort Smith.
Dish = (insert operator's name of your choice)

Note: Don't worry about serving dish it serves it's self !!!!!!!!

can anybody tell me what this means?

oh boo...

That's funny nanc! I'd give anything to have been there when that took place. Nobody was called a homo? Jeez I missed it.

Is shrimp etouffee catchy? Do they allow conjugal visits in the asylum when you get it?

The Merry Widow said...

EB- I'm starting to question where you are posting from. It sounds like your cut off from conjugal visits, what's the matter, infuriate your wife and you're sleeping in the dog house, AGAIN? Oh Boo!
Nanc- I've known a few at Harris...don't let them near ANY machinary. It won't survive!

Elmer's Brother said...

it's just a deep fear of mine to be separate from my wife and be suffering from a bad case of insouciance, ennui and shrimp etouffee.

nanc said...

oh morgan - nobody calls them homos anymore! they call them "dad" "bro" "sis"...he's not a fag - that's what is so funny!

elbro - you MUST catch the shrimp first...

tmw - there's one guy who the insurance company says if we allow to use any equipment on a public road - they will cancel the insurance! thing is, he's one of the best operator's this side of the mississippi - he usually wrecks the equipment on his way to putting it away!

Elmer's Brother said...

nanc sounds like my oldest - two totalled cars in 18 months and four accidents...she's not driving anymore and I worry a lot less.

tmw - my wife and I are just fine and we played find the shrimp on our honeymoon thank you very much nanc

Robert Bayn said...

*laughs*, be thankful it was just a knee.

I now must go repent for this one!

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

::invokes the dogs belong outside rule::

This ain't France, dammit!

nanc said...

jeez - i didn't hear how the guy whose knee was being rubbed reacted...i must get the rest of the story...nancharvey

nanc said...

apparently he just sat there with that dumb dog look on his face - could have been the real reason the money guy was rubbing his leg? because after the initial outburst, the money guy said, "i thought you were brownie (a chocolate lab)!"

an now you have the rest of the story - well, until next time.

nanc said...

elbro - find the shrimp? i've heard of hide the pickle...

nanc said...

rob - you didn't do anything wrong! this is real life stuff here at longrange!

Elmer's Brother said...

I thought that's what you meant when you said I MUST find the shrimp first.

nanc said...

well - just WHO hid it in the first place?!?

say goodnight, gracie.

Elmer's Brother said...

who's on first

I don't know

third base

Robert Bayn said...

Real life what is this thing you talk about, you mean people do other things than just sitting at a computer?

Blasphemy!

The Merry Widow said...

Mr. B., you'd like my puppy-wuppy! And in Fla., keeping them outside all the time is cruel. Especially a mostly black pw!
Remind me to tell you about a SATAF meeting my Dad and his commanding officer were at back in '62. :snicker:
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

Hey, Warren, How're them thar peegs?

nanc said...

rob-rob-rob - one should speak only from experience or from lack of experience - that's my motto!

tmw - dogs belong outside. every last one of them. hamsters and fish may be kept in the house.

JINGOIST said...

Nanc I just finished my interview with Beaker, it was lots of fun! He didn't ask the one question you wanted to hear. If you want, I'd be more than happy to tell you the whole thing. Keep your guns ready you may have to back me up later.

Morgan

Gayle said...

Your comment threads are always hysterical and a bit hard to follow. "Peegs?" What "Peegs?" That's what comes from not stopping by here often enough. *sigh*

I'm having a hard time trying to understand how someone can mistake a bony knee (aren't most men's knees a bit bony?) with the head of a large hairy dog? Is everyone absolutely certain he didn't do it on purpose?

nanc said...

morgan - just interject it somewhere within the comments - i'll copy and paste it here at longrange! beak doesn't mind if you go o.t. - he's king of o.t. when he comes to visit - perhaps he's paying me back...

gayle - i just love it when you come by - sometimes you have to go back a few articles to see we keep current with our promises to pay back!

yup - tmw will be threatening warren next year at this time for what he pulled on all of us "here awhile back"!

The Merry Widow said...

Nah, don't need to pick on Warren, next year about the peegs. Now something else...that depends on Warren!

a 55 gallon barrel of DUMB ASS extract

Duck must have a stock of those barrels.

Elmer's Brother said...

Morgan - I'll answer your question...it's Yes. Ducky is a dumb*ss.

The Merry Widow said...

AoW-He has a whole warehouse full, you could probably talk him into a discount on a bulk buy!

Freedomnow said...

I'd like to subscribe to the "Oh Boo" newsletter please.

I've heard alot about the funny stories that you publish and I have to be a member of the fan club.

Brooke said...

That is TOO funny, Nanc!

nanc said...

fern? as soon as we receive your czech in the mail, the issues will start rolling - now fork it over!

thanks brooke.

nanc said...

p.s. fern - there is no fan club unless of course you'd like to start one. these moments will be more priceless as soon as i kick the bucket, so i give you and warren all copyright rights.

just take care of nancpop and nancchildren in the manner to which they've become accustomed. that's right - you must purchase them another crotchety old woman to remind them of just what they'd be missing had that bucket not been in my way!

The Merry Widow said...

Fern- Talk to me, I've been Nanc's Official Fan Klub for over a year now! E-mail me and we'll discuss dues, duties, offices etc. etc. and perks, you get a life size, autographed standup of the Nancster!
Isn't that special?
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Well, it's good that Nanc and I agree on the dogs belong outside rule. Starts *today* off right.

I'm sorry TMW, but it's cruel to breed animals that can't survive outside.

I once had a dog that froze to death in the snow. Its evolutionary weakness pissed me off so much that I didn't give it a proper burial, so that nature's carrion eaters could at least benefit from its otherwise useless form.

Just kidding, but you know what I mean. What did wild tiny toy poodles do before canned dog food was invented?

Now, Nanc, you big mean Chargers fan, guess what today is?

Elmer's Brother said...

you must purchase them another crotchety old woman

Not even an old storm door is worth this.

The newsletter will be just fine. IN the meantime should you kick the bucket nanc pass on this link to nancpop...I'm going to keep the trailmix.

The Merry Widow said...

Mr. B.- I've been raised with dogs inside, even large ones! Mother and daughter boxers, 4 german shephards when I got married. I was raised with dogs are part of the family, can't think of them as otherwise. Guess it's the way I was raised! But I won't stop having my puppies inside.

tmw

Warren said...

Me too, TMW.

My dogs are in the house. I've had one poisoned, it isn't going to happen again.

nanc said...

i don't like children in the house but have been told that's where one keeps them - it doesn't make it right!
;[ [:

The Merry Widow said...

Nanc- You're allowed to stay in the house...

tmw

nanc said...

tmw can be ceo and elbro is in charge of marketing.

nanc said...

no tmw - the house is allowed to envelope me!

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Dogs are supposed to protect the outside perimeter of your home and to defend, with its life if necessary, your right to not have your doorbell rang by a door-to-door solicitor.

If your pit bull hasn't dismembered a Jehovah's Witness by age three, give it up for adoption.

Freedomnow said...

TMW,

I dont know if I am ready for a life-sized poster of the amazing Nanc.

Perhaps I can just have a shiny button and a small percentage of the royalties from the massive profits that the fan club is obviously producing!

The Merry Widow said...

Fern- It's actually 73 cents in the hole, cover the debt and you get 25% of the shares!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha1

Farmer John said...

I've heard of having hairy legs before... but as hirsute as a chocolate lab? I don't think so.

Better keep your eye on the money guy, nanc. He's after nancpop!

nanc said...

it wouldn't be the first one, farmer. it wasn't nancpop's knee he was petting although he has very nice knees worthy of a good rub - it was another guy's knee!

nancpop would have clocked him!

Elmer's Brother said...

I'm in charge of marketing? okay i'll break out the crayons and poster board.
