As may know – I work in the oil and gas industry. Currently I am in Iraq, where you could say tensions are a little high the moment.
Each day – one of the Construction Managers e-mails a ‘quote of the day’.
– Here is an example.
“If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.”
Now, to be honest, as long as I have the eBay app on my phone – I do not have time to digest that crap. I can only assume it’s some kind of religious shite?
After 4 or 5 days of receiving these, I just HAD to ‘reply all’ with some quotes that I found on the internet. The Chuck Norris Fact Site to be more specific.
I replied with…
“When Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone……………he had 3 missed calls from Chuck Norris ”
Needless to say, others jumped on the bandwagon and loads more Chuck Norris facts were sent around.
The originator of the ‘Quote of the Day’ has since removed me from his distribution list.
Even in these times of stress and tension… you’ll find me enjoying myself.
