    sounds like a fun place to work and I am not being sarcastic. when I was in high school I worked in a card store and we always joked around with one another (only when we were slow). one day my friend was working the cash register ( this was right after christmas, where all boxed cards were reduced) and we had a cheat sheet at the register of what the discounted cost was. In thise days we didn't have electronic cash registers so I decided to play a pratical joke and take the sheet away from her. She couldn't figure out the discount in her head and she was getting very red in the face. After a few minutes I decided to give her the sheet back since it was starting to get busy.

    My husband (he is a network admin/former help desk support) has all sorts of similar tales. Only these are employer in people where he works put odd files on their work computers that don't belong to them. He has come across all sorts of odd emails and files...some people save items on a shared network, and it's hilarious to hear about some of these people. Just FYI for anyone who didn't already know: When you're at work, your emails aren't private....

    That is funny Pen. Life is stranger than fiction. There are people with no shame.

    Sounds like all my AAA members also own computers too.

    Ahah, this was interesting. Now about the "embarrassing pictures", maybe they are just not "embarrassing" for them and that's why they don't care about your seeing them? I mean, where's the problem with enjoying porn? Sex can be good even when it's with oneself. I love all these things about cereals in computers and such! I think I would be the kind of customer who would piss you off because I am not good at understanding computer stuff so I would tend to ask for help quite quickly, even when it's not necessary.

    I love hearing these kinds of stories. It makes me laugh. You could probably write a book about all the things you see.

    Thanks for the comments and advice.

    Mother H: Yeah, I was afraid people would know it was me, thus disqualifying my story!

    Virgil: Well, not just the limit, but this was written based on a half-hour TV show, so they rushed as well.

    Wilbur: Narrative deficient? Here I thought it didn't have enough action!

    Love to all

    Pen,the story is apparently going swift as there a raft of conversations solely and the narrative is deficient.But the story is quite average,endeavour to tweak it.

    This was a good story Pen. What prevented me from voting for this one was that the ending seemed rushed. I know that dreaded 2000 word limit. I wish we could raise that, even just a little.

    Well, Pen. I loved this story. I should have known it was yours. It’s very much something I would expect from you, but I didn’t make the connection. It was a great story. I had such a hard time deciding on what to vote for and then there was that tie and it really made didn’t help my decision. There were several excellent stories this time. I wonder if the quality of the writers has improved of if the writer’s quality has improved I’ve seen competitions where any of the stories from this last time would have easily won!

    Uncle Pen! I didn't know you had Bipolar, too. Oh well, manic depression is one of the most difficult things a person has to go through. I am experiencing it, too. However, I am also glad to hear that you are keeping yourself busy. Take care, uncle Pen!!

    I think it’s great, pen, that you are working on computers some. I think you and I are alike in that we prefer to be at home. I am going to start volunteering at the school one day a week and I have serious anxiety about being away from the house all day. But, I’ll have to get a job in a couple of years so I need to try to get over it. I wasn’t always like this. Now I have to really plan and talk to myself about being away. A couple of hours is fine, but all day makes me feel sick.

    That is pretty scary about the skeleton. When my kids are all grown I would like to hike the Appalachian Trail with my best friend. Maybe not the entire trail, but I would love to spend a month on it. (I don’t get sick thinking about that because it’s so far in the future and the thought of not having all of the kids in the house makes me think I’ll feel less responsible or maybe more independent in the future) But wasn’t there someone who would kill the hikers several years ago? Scary. Maybe I won’t be scared about it in another fifteen years when my kids are all adults.
