Blow and Tell

She stood by the counter, a brown grocery sack in hand. Without a word, she upended the brimming bag, used Kleenexes tumbling over the surface, some falling onto the ground.

“This,” she declared angrily, “is one day’s worth of tissues. I need help now!”

Eyes wide, mouth clamped shut, my front desk receptionist grabbed for the Lysol.

Needless to say, the title of this post will catch attention!

I hope you gave that woman some serious antihistamines or whatever she needed! (And your receptionist made good use of that Lysol!)

Hi MG: Believe me, she got all she needed and we were most liberal with the Lysol! My receptionist practically lives in a cloud of Lysol!

I can't believe anyone would do that. Seriously - in this day and age.

Good thing your receptionist had the lysol handy.
