Boys At Play – Just a Day at Work For Me

I work with a bunch of jokesters.
Thankfully, I am fairly rarely the brunt of the joke. They have tried, however you need to wake-up pret-ty early to catch me off guard. I now just get to enjoy all the pranks they do to each other. Many times I get to be in on the joke, as you can’t do anything around my office without me knowing about it. I hear, see and smell all. Yes, I can smell when the boys are out churning the compost pile in back… peeee-you!
This is how this one played out:
My boss and his family love to hunt and the Hispanic employees love to eat most things they kill. It’s a perfect symbiotic relationship.Β  As my fellow blogger (Bella Remy Photography) found out recently while trying to take photos of a Bald Eagle dining on a fallen deer… landscapers love their free meat! I’ve even seen them turn around to pick-up the wild turkey they just hit trying to cross the road.
My boss was driving back to the shop and witnessed a car hit a coyote. He quickly pulled over to see if the driver was OK (they were) and if they wanted the carcass. Yes, he did!! They clearly did not want it. He tossed it into the back of his truck and brought it back to the office.
I saw him pull it out of his truck and place it near the wheel of his son’s truck.

I think the son may have peed himself a bit when he walked around the truck and saw it! =-O

My boss guessed I probably don’t get that type of humor.

I don’t get that he picked up something no one would eat.

    • They did move it to the far side of the property (after they had their ‘fun’) so surely some scavenger will find it.
      I was almost hesitant to post this, but then again I didn’t do it, I’m just the messenger. I thought it was just funny enough to post, but surely will offend someone. ..

      • I know what you mean. πŸ™‚ I thought it a tad macabre, but they didn’t kill the coyote.
        And someone – usually a complete stranger to one’s blog – is always going to be offended by Something!


          • haha I got my nastiest comment (from a stranger) on a bonsai post! I deleted it – then they sent a Tirade! – so I waited a few weeks before deleting that also! πŸ˜€
            I have no problem with someone having a different opinion to me – but at least read my blog and Know me first!


            • I’ve not had a nasty comment come by me. .. and that shocks me! I do have a few posts that could prompt a ‘nasty-gram’ (that’s what we call a bad email at work).
              I can’t imagine that I could be persuaded to pull a post. I am a pretty liberal person. If you don’t like what I’m writing, don’t read it!
              I would, if it were personal, like I took a photo of someone and that person told me to not use thier likeness. Or referenced their blog or site. I would then just remove the part about them.
              Here in the U.S., “first amendment rights” allow us to say whatever we want without repercussions. I think many of us ‘writers’ take advantage of that right!
              I also moderate my comments. No troll πŸ‘Ή is getting by me!

  1. I like the back window idea! True, it might have been to easy to spot, but if they pulled it off, think about what the son’s reaction would have been the first time he looked in the rear-view mirror.

Time to fire-up the chair-to-keyboard interface!!!
