Don't Make Me Hose You!

I told you all before about the guy with the sound effects (and from here on out, he will be called Mr. Sound Effects). Let’s just say that he may have been a few sandwiches short of a picnic.

Long story short; he made a ridiculous comment after he had already done several things that would make you shake your head in disbelief. So the other driver that witnessed and fell victim to all of that nonsense ….. well, he hosed him.

Yes, Mr. Sound Effects was hosed down.

At that point Mr. Sound Effects calls the other driver (at home at the time) and exclaims (insert nasal-y I-might-be-a-little-light-in-the-loafers voice)

“He hoooooooossssed me!”

(And yes, it was all drawn out and dramatic like that)

As a professional, I was not impressed with this behavior. Hosing off a fellow coworker is not acceptable, no matter how stupid and annoying the person may be acting. (Seriously, do you know how often I'd have to hose off my employees? Kidding. Maybe.)

As the person who loves to laugh and truly enjoys the lighter side of things – this little nugget of information was hysterical. A grown man hosing another grown man because they can’t get along - that is priceless! (What I wouldn't have paid to see that! I mean *ahem* no, no that is completely unprofessional!)

After we got past the scalding involved when an employee decides to open fire with a water hose, we found the true hilarity in the situation and it has become a running joke around the office.

That driver (and give me time, I will properly name each of them for future references) will never, ever live that incident down.

LOL but don't you wish sometimes it was an appropriate measure to hose down every eejit or employee that acts stupid. I wish it was. Seriously, I'd walk around with a massive hose to hose down everyone in sight..that would be pure Anarchy LOL

Dude, if I were afforded the opportunity to hose down all the igmos I work with, we'd have to swim out of the building because, in case you missed the memo, FEMA is igmo central!!
