Doing for others…
So our water cooler broke at work & the owner of the company decided to order a new part & replace it himself. We all joked that he should get the younger guy to do it, but he really wanted to fix it himself as a gift to us.
He proceeded to change the part (by my desk) and cracked a joke that he shouldn’t be working with water & electricity. I immediately said “didn’t you unplug it first” and he responded “where’s the fun in that?!”
After the part was in its place the machine started spewing water like an oil gusher & we all ran with cups & towels as he tried to unplug the machine. I couldn’t stop laughing as a coworker proceeded to sing the Beverly Hillbillies song - “Let me tell you a story about a man named Jed…”
And this is why you should always unplug the water cooler before replacing a part LOL. I think the gift of laughter was by far the best gift we could have received this year!!
