It may be politically incorrect - I'm not sure but I have tears running down my face with laughter typing this up.............and most of you know John enough by now to know that THIS happening to HIM makes it all the more funny.
This has just struck my funny bone so deeply that I'll die from laughing if I don't share.
If you were a fan of Seinfeld you'll think it's funny -
I'm apologizing in advance to people that I offend !!!
Oh. My. Goodness. - where to start?
I found a dresser on Craig's list - and asked him if he'd pick it up
John says - You sent me to a Korean Brothel
Suzan says - Pardon me?
John says - You sent me to a Korean Brothel
Suzan says - What on earth are you talking about?
John yells - the dresser you sent me to pick up - it was at a Korean Brothel
By now I start laughing and I can't stop
Suzan says - Please John don't be ridiculous -
John says - I'm not picking up any more furniture - this was it - the last of it.
Suzan says - How could you possibly know it was a brothel ?
Ok - this is where my stomach is hurting from laughing - O.M.G.!!!
It's shocking - but trust me - once the shock wears off it's out of this world funny
John says - She told me the price for the dresser - and then told me it was 20.00 for a blow-blow
Suzan screams - WHAT???
John says - I'm not repeating it Suzan
Suzan says - You misunderstood her John - she also had a mirror for sale - I saw it
John says - TRUST. ME. I. DID. NOT. MISUNDERSTAND. ANYTHING. AT. ALL.
John says - She told me it was 20.00 for a B.L.O.W - B.L.O.W
John says - 20.00 dollars - Very good price, Mister
Suzan says - OMG - what did you say?
John says - " I'll just take the dresser thank you very much "
Now I can't even stay on the phone - I seriously can't get the words out - I'm choking on laughter - tears are in my eyes -
This poor stiff British proper man of mine in such a situation is just too funny for words .............
John says - Glad you find it so funny
John says - You should have come with me
Suzan says - well you wouldn't have gotten the offer had I been hanging on to your arm honey !
I walked around the house all evening dying -
Every time I looked at him I'd start shaking with laughter.................
I went to bed giggling - and was still giggling long after he went to sleep.............
I woke up - glanced over at him and started laughing all over again.
I'm laughing while I'm typing !
My stomach muscles haven't worked that hard in ages.
Painting furniture - I wouldn't trade it for anything LOL
And that's it for today -
Hope you all get to have a good belly laugh at some point this weekend
Sometimes a laugh is so much better than a makeover - don't you think?
It's taken me all morning to contemplate hitting publish
Here I go !!!
So now who ya gonna get to go pick up your furniture? This is the funniest thing I have ever read in my life!!!!!!! Poor John!!!!! It would have been so different had it been Jim picking up for me- he's the Police!!!!! So so funny, I am still laughing. Yes, laughing is better than a whole lot of other things we could be doing!!!! Thank you Miss Sunshine Suzie for my daily dose of gaiety!!!! Have a happy weekend!!!! XOXOXOX KarenReplyDelete
Well Karen - as soon as I mention that I'll have to pay someone to pick furniture up - he'll get over it very quickly LOLDelete
I hear you!!! I would hope Jim would get my stuff loaded before he called the vice squad!!!!Delete
Iv'e always wondered about those weird little "massage" places....poor John, but super funny.ReplyDelete
By the way....$20.00...seems cheap....and leads to many other questions.
LOL! Great adventure, Sir John! Hugs, Linda@Wetcreek BlogReplyDelete
I have been laughing here too. This is so unbelievable, Suzan. Poor, poor John.ReplyDelete
Have a great weekend.
OMG! That is hysterical... I would have loved to see the look on his face when she said that!!ReplyDelete
I'm glad you shared the story ~
Oh wow, poor John! I bet my husband would swear that he would not pick up another thing for me too if he ended up in the same situation... :)ReplyDelete
OMG - how funny. I can just see the expression on his face - priceless. Thanks for making my day - too funny. Poor John...ReplyDelete
Have a super weekend.
My apologies to John. . .but I thought this was hilarious! I could imagine my guy as well. He would have been tongue-tied!ReplyDelete
This is absolutely, over the top funny!!!! I hope you got a great deal on the dresser as John would have gotten for services rendered!!! :)ReplyDelete
I'm telling you...you are the new sitcom. Sweatman.ReplyDelete
O.M.G!!! Seriously!!!??? I read it out to Dave and I'm sending this post to friends. Bust a gut absolutely hilarious! Gonna pee my pants funny. PattyReplyDelete
Perhaps they were offering to style his hair.ReplyDelete
LMAO!!! Yes, it DID remind me of a Seinfeld episode! Poor John - but I cracked up laughing and I'm STILL grinning!ReplyDelete
I'm still laughing 3 days later Camille !!!Delete
This is hysterical! But...I think you owe your husband some kind of payback for all of his suffering...just sayin' - haha!ReplyDelete
I'll give him 20.00 Julie LMHO !!!Delete
OMG, I'm so glad you hit "Publish!" That is hysterical!!! Now, if he starts asking you more frequently if you've got any furniture to be picked up, well, that's another story!ReplyDelete
All I can type is: LOL!!!ReplyDelete
Well, did he get one? Seriously funny - I am giggling but Chucks sees no humor in this - he says you put poor John in a dangerous situation. I hope the dresser is a pretty one.ReplyDelete
So funny!!! And his name is John too.... oh my!ReplyDelete
John is a saint!!ReplyDelete
Oh how funny.ReplyDelete
One thing about it, you and John both manage to bring humor into our lives in some
way shape or form.
It's Always a joy reading your blog; just never know what will be coming up for the next day. :}
Enjoy your evening
Oh my. I wonder if there are husbands out there that would not have told the whole story... and just brought home the dresser with a smile on their face!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
I agree with Colleen above...you just never know what's coming next on your blog. I'm going to have to read this to my hubs cuz he's wondering why I'm laughing so much on my computer. here goes...ReplyDelete
I read this to the Texan I'm married to and straight faced he said "If it was $20 for the blow-blow, I wonder how much it was for the dresser?" Whaaaat?ReplyDelete
Too funny! Wow is that what they get now a days lol! Poor John.ReplyDelete
LMAO! That is too hilarious for words!ReplyDelete
Oh my! That is hysterical, thanks for hitting "publish", I needed a good laugh tonight!ReplyDelete
Thanks Rhonda LMHO !!!Delete
Ummm okay then lol I hope you scrubbed that dresser!ReplyDelete
So funny!! Guess you'd better start sending him with an extra 20 dollar bill Suzan! (Do you have 20 dollar bills in Canada?)ReplyDelete
What a scream! You guys need a reality TV show. I swear I would watch and I can't stand those things! Poor John. I do love that he told you the whole story. And I agree with Julie - how many husbands would have just kept that info to themselves and been happier for the rest of the day? :)ReplyDelete
OMG that is hilarious. Poor John....bless him! LOLReplyDelete
Oh my...lol...I have tears from laughing.....thank you for the laugh, but poor John...I read it to my hubby, he said whoa, and his name is John .....lol...ReplyDelete
LMHO ( I'm still laughing over this )
Only John! Too funny!!!ReplyDelete
Poor John...I'm sure it wasn't funny to him, but Oh My...is it so funny to all of us!!ReplyDelete
Awesome :) Love this story - made my afternoon!!ReplyDelete
I can see why your stomach muscles hurt...this was too funny! I see why he doesn't want to pick up any more furniture....lol! Thanks for the laugh...:)ReplyDelete
I've picked up furniture from some pretty odd places but never a Korean brothel! I did however sell a four poster bed to an unusual customer on ebay. I bought it at auction in bits and had to assemble it outside to paint as it was so big. It took a LONG time to put together (and some swearing may have been involved) so I had to paint really quickly before it got dark, which was no mean feat as it was very heavily carved. I had only just started using Annie Sloan and this seemed the ideal project, unfortunately I hadn't really taken on board the importance of waxing or varnishing. So I distressed it by sanding, took some arty pictures like it was sitting in a field and then we had to dismantle it. Obviously it wasn't going to fit in the shop so we listed it on ebay. I did think I might wax it in pieces before it was collected but it sold in hours and the guy seemed very eager to pick up. I wasn't there when he arrived but he told my colleague that he was a film maker (and I'm not talking about the sort that get academy awards here) and the bed was going to be invaluable in adding a touch of class to his productions. Regrettably I fear it also added a fair bit of dust to his star's nether regions at the same time :-DReplyDelete
John and I laughed our heads off at this Gerry - too funny !!!Delete
Dust on the star's nether regions !!!
I can so picture how embarassed John must have been... I think hookers sell the best stuff, I mean apart from the obvious... MY father picked up a red transferware set for me once and he told me the lady selling it was in her lacy underwear when he arrived and kept answering the phone giving prices to the callers... But she didn't offer my dad a blow-blow, thank God! Maybe my father and John should begin an association "Picker Anonymous" so they could share their stories.ReplyDelete
Okay wait....all that and no pictures of the brothel? What good is he????ReplyDelete
