Ways to make me laugh

This morning I smelled gas in our neighborhood. Mr. Right called the gas company which is "Consumers" for us.

When I got to work I had this email from him -

"Consumers said they received over 500 calls this morning. They think it was a release from a factory but not natural gas because they have not detected any leak indications on any of their metering systems. He said he's been checking houses in the area all morning. He came into the house with some kind of yellow meter with a big stem on it and said there was zero detected gas in the home. Except when I farted".

I edited out the part where he told me I'm the most beautiful woman he has ever seen.

Not sure what factory they are referring to out there in the lakes/green acres area.

If that was the case, i am sure the meter would have been going crazy at my house. My husband always says that "if you people could get paif for farting, you'd be rich!"

Ha! Happy SITS day. Thanks for the laugh:)

Belle said...

Men! Congratulations on your SITS day!

Heather said...

Hee hee! Mr. Right sounds like his sense of humor is the same as my dad's - and my dad is one of the funniest people I know (at least he can always crack me up). Hmmm, guess that means I at least appreciate his sense of humor, if not sharing in it since I'm a perfect lady and all... Wanna pull my finger? :)

Cheers!

Feliz said...

That is too funny! Happy SITSday!

EmBee said...

When the gas company comes by, they're supposed to be checking meters not pulling fingers.

Too funy! I hope all is well and everyone in safe from all forms of gas. Farts included as I know in my family some can be quite deadly. Wink Wink.

How sweet that he added humor to soften what could have been a dangerous situation.

I think every Mr. Right has gas that smells like roses to himself! Happy SITS Day!

WheresMyAngels said...

Cute!lol My husband never has stinky farts, maybe it is because he is always constipated. Opps TMI.

Michelle said...

Gotta love getting those types of emails. Yay Mr Right (and more YAYs to you for your feature day)!

Kaza said...

I guess all husbands really ARE the same!

Wep said...

Sounds like my husband. His dad calls him UGI direct. All we need to do is hook up the car to his butt and we're in business.

Untypically Jia said...

OMG that is too funny! My husband is just the same!

AJ said...

That sounds like my husband, or maybe just all guys in general. Very Funny!
Congrats on you SITS feature!

LOL ,, that's funny and a typical male reaction!!

Though, as another poster mentioned, the gas meter would be going crazy in this house. Another symptom of Menopause, that nobody tells you about!!!

Jennifer P. said...

Using Saturday to do all my SITS reading :)!

SOunds like you got a keeper there!

Hot Air said...

One instance where my "show, don't tell" motto flies out the window. I'd much rather read about the farting...
Sadly, my hubby thinks this joke is more clever in person.
