Lessons in life, part 12

Apparently, even when you're trying your best to lower the severity of your usual profanity filled prattle, blurting out 'GODDAMN IT!' when on the phone to a nun is considered either 'unprofessional' or 'hilarious' depending on whom you're speaking to.....

Oh, I'm definitely in the 'hilarious' camp.

And when do you speak to nun's on the phone, pray tell?

Sweet Cheeks said...

Totally Hilarious!

Good thing you posted that life lesson...I was just about to phone Sister Mary, so I've written a note on my hand to help me remember.....
~No Goddamnit~

Little Squirrel...you crack me up!

Jan - I think that makes it a majority...

Belle - one of our clients moonlights as a nun. Seriously, a deep south Jesus freak. I don't think it was a well-received comment :(

Sweet Cheeks - In retrospect I wish I'd meant it. I didn't even notice until a colleague started wetting himself with laughter!

Pearl - a very, very fine line :)

I was about to suggest 'sacrilegious' as a more appropriate term, but of course, I just didn't want to rub it in!

Red Squirrel said...

Roshni - one person's sacrilegious comment is another man's witty retort. That's my excuse anyway...

How, pray tell, does one 'moonlight' as a fucking nun, Goddamn it. I mean gosh darn it... Sister Margaret would have a field day with her ruler if she got a hold of me today. :(
