So I work with men all day. I own, run, and work my barbershop. Have girls working for me. We laugh, joke with everyone, keep it light, and we have the greatest time!
I had a client just recently call up to cancel his appt with me. He gets on the line to say that he is sorry to cancel, as this is the first time in years he is doing so. I say ok lets reschedule.
He goes on to explain that he cannot do that at this time. Then he asks me NOT to make him laugh this time, “Please don’t make me laugh!!!” Well this client has given me so much great material over the years that it takes every ounce of myself not to bust out right then and there.
“OK, I won’t make you laugh,” I agree.
So he tells his story. Apparently he was watching the 49ers vs Saints who didn’t win a thing in the long haul (FWIW I watched Packers vs. Giants & I hate the fooken Giants and then they go off to win the Superbowl!!!)
Anyway, he was watching the games by himself and really got in the ol-team-spirit! Yelling and cursing the plays left and right. Jumping around like a maniac. Then suddenly things came to an abrupt standstill… He gave himself a hernia!!!
OMG the entire barbershop erupted. He was on speaker phone (and he knew it)! I couldn’t help it. We laughed so hard! He hung up (so he wouldn’t laugh) only to call me back later to reschedule.
Hernia!!! He now has to have surgery for a game( 49s vs. Saints) where the winner didn’t even make it out of the playoffs. It cost him well over $3000!
He is never going to watch any games by himself again!! lol
