~ Two on Tuesday ~
Found out I'm a scofflaw and a convicted felon. (It's funny when you think about it.) I'll explain.
* You may remember that my sister Laura and I decorated the bathhouse that's across the street from our campsite. Here's 2 pictures to refresh your memory.
Well, I was looking through the by-laws of our campground and found out that we were not supposed to do that. I did not know this. So far they have not sent out the SWAT team to get us, so I guess we're ok.
* I've been looking for a job for a little while now and have applied twice at the City of Bowie. Both times I got a nice, polite rejection letter. A few days ago, I applied for another job and submitted my application. (All 3 applications were sent through their website.) For some reason I decided to go back and look at my applications again and I noticed that the question that asks "have you ever been convicted of a felony?" was checked 'yes'. Wait, what? Oh jeez - really? I'm not a convicted felon - I'm not a convicted anything. I tried a few times to change it, but I couldn't. No wonder I'm getting rejection letters. I called the HR department and the young lady told me that their computers were down and that she would call me back. She did not call me back. (Probably doesn't want to associate with a convicted felon.) My next phone call was to my daughter Erica - she works at the City of Bowie. She will call her friend in HR and get this fixed for me.
Once I got over the initial 'uh-oh, now what?' - both of these situations are funny to me.
I looked at Vince and asked "dang man, what kind of woman did you marry?" He just said "I don't know". :)
