Personal Services.

When the nice young lady from Pickfords telephoned me last week to finalise arrangements for 'the move', she asked if we would require the full packing service. After much thought I replied,

"I'm not sure really. It's all rather personal having someone poking about in your drawers. What would you do?"

"Well they are professionals, and they are very discreet when dealing with clients." She replied.

"Hmm, let me get back to you."

And so I made myself a nice cup of tea and started to ponder. Then I started to have a little look in some of the said drawers. Then I started to inspect the contents further, and as I had emptied the drawers, I decided to clean them, and then as everything was out of the drawers I thought it would be a shame to put everything back in the drawers. So I packed it into boxes. Several days later and umpteen cups of cold tea I am now surrounded by mountains of boxes and immaculately clean drawers.

The professional, discreet drawer rummaging service is no longer required. However I shall retain their card, purely for reference you understand.

I think if I had someone poking about in my drawers, I'd want them to be discreet too. LOL

Can you imagine the conversations in the Pickfords' employee lounge? The unmentionables they've seen? I suspect "descreet" is loosely defined.

Uhh, it makes me shudder to think of a complete stranger going through my drawers and unmentionables.

Attila The Mom said...

Bahahaha. I was commenting on the drawers=panties aspect of the post. I think Charlie got it, but was afraid to comment. ;-)

It's ok Charlie, I thought that you of all people would get the picture... no on second thoughts that's not a picture you should be having, I'll have it back now please. By the way I can't stop laughing at your Limey cat.

Attila, I'll have to try your telephone technique it's hysterical.

Rhonda said...

Good grief, do I feel stupid, LOL. The whole thing went right over my head, until I had three cups of coffee and came back for a second look. Plus, I misspelled discreet! Ack!

Note to self: Reading blogs before daylight when you are seriously sleep deprived, not a good plan.

I am going to go take a nap.
