Distracted???

Okay, so the other day at work my mind was obviously wandering...

The phone rang and so I picked it up and said, "Bank of the ......, this is MOM, may I help you?" .... dead silence .... then, "ahhhh, may I speak with ....?"

As I transfered the call and looked around, the entire teller line was staring at me then fell out on the floor laughing at me... I was crying I was laughing so hard.

One of the other girls finally was able to compose herself long enough to say tell me it was okay. One day she answered the phone and said, "this is Martha".... her name is Kathy! She said she had no idea WHERE that one came from...

Well, laughing is good for you - especially when we can laugh at ourselves.

I am laughing so hard. Not long after I got saved I began working at the church. We had 7 incoming lines, 50 people on staff (12 of them pastors)so for 2/5 years I answered the phone with the church's name.

A few years later I began working in the secular world and answered with the name of the church. The person hung up. Thankfully no one was there because they wouldn't have laughed, I did though.

Yes, laughing at ourselves is good. I have many chances to do just that :-)

Proverbs 15:13 A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.
