Monday Memories...

To help me come up with funny things for this blog, I decided I would go to my memories. I have a whole mind full of embarrassing things that have happened to me... not to mention plenty of stupid decisions that I can laugh at NOW! So, for starters ladies and gentlemen... one of the most embarrassing things that has ever happened to me!! It was 1999 and I was working at R&K (see a few posts ago for how I felt about that job!) It was my last day (or so I thought... I ended up working there again a year later after I was married, and then again when Jackson was almost a year old - third time's a charm!) Anyway, I was going through a really hard time, and was seeking a new life in a new town. As a joke for my last day, a few of my fellow door shop employees got together and hired me a stripper. Nope, I am not even kidding! Unfortunately, they all knew me well enough to know I wasn't the "Molly Mormon" I sometimes came across as, and they knew I wouldn't get offended! Anyway, he came in acting like a customer and had me take him out to the shop where our doors were located. As I was walking out, a girl that I worked with handed me an envelope full of one dollar bills and told me that I would be needing those. Ummmm... I didn't have any idea why (and let it be known that I did not use even ONE of those dollars!) Anyway, after talking to me for a bit, the fake customer/professional stripper sat me down, turned on some music, and told me what he was there to do. At that point I looked over and saw close to a hundred of my fellow workers watching me! (seems the word got out that there was a stripper in the door shop and people came running from every department.) In this first picture I am trying to talk him out of doing this. I explained that I was a good girl and didn't want him to do this. He told me that he had been paid to strip and he was going to. By this point I was about to throw up. Looking back I should have walked away, but I didn't know what to do! Anyway... here are a few priceless pics that someone snatched of the event. After this happened, R&K (which was LDS owned and had many LDS employees) put a "No strippers at work" clause in their handbook - up until this happened they didn't know they needed one!!
"This is not happening! This is NOT happening!"
