A funny thing happened…..

A funny thing happened earlier this week.

I was working with some financial services folk up in the City. We were writing stuff on those big post-it notes and sticking them up on the wall. I peeled off a post-it and there, sandwiched into the pack, was a crisp new fiver.

How the hell did it get there? It couldn’t have just slipped in as someone was carrying the post-its in a bag because there were no signs of the pack being crumpled. It must have been put in there deliberately, though not by anyone in the group I was working with. They were as surprised as I was when it popped out.

Perhaps someone put the fiver into the pack to see how honest the facilitator was. I doubt it though because most of the people there knew me and, if they were going to play a trick, would probably have come up with something more inventive than that.

Maybe the post-it pack had been used in some sort of management game where money was placed in between the notes as some kind of reward. Again, though, I can’t see the people I was working with indulging in something like that.

Or could it be that someone is just placing fivers in post-it notes for the hell of it?

    I’ve noticed the gluey stuff they use on these post it note things has a rather more, hypnotic smell about it these days. Just saying…

    No, really, it happened…….

    And, no, I hadn’t been drinking. It was only 10.30 in the morning.

    Weird happenings eh? Our loo sink cracked clean in two right in front of me a while back. Didn’t touch it, no warning nothing. Stone cold sober. Could barely believe it then, still struggling with it now. If it had happened to Mrs Snoop or junior, I probably would’ve said, “yeah, and I read about a guy found a fiver in a pack of post its…get real.”

    Maybe someone at post it HQ has developed a cash laundering scam and you’ve rumbled it?

    Talking of more weird shit, my house has been flooded. We’ve had worse downpours before. No idea why this one turned my back garden into a swimming pool.

      Poop. That is weird, I hope everything dries out OK. By way of keeping the weird flag a flyin’ the floody thing happened to us in 2007, day we got back from a family holiday in Italy. Mega downpour. We live at the top of a hill but the storm drains just couldnae handle it and bingo, our garage had six inches of water in it before you could say Noah.
