I hadn't been with the Company for two months when I tragic accident happen and I broke my leg, foot and ankle! (That will be another story)
I had only been back to work for a couple of weeks when the red head's son stopped into visit her. I was new to the office so I hadn't met her family yet. The son brought in these beautiful flowers to surprise his mother. Mike (the son) said he hadn’t seen her in a bit and was coming through town and wanted to surprise his mom with some flowers. I thought that was so sweet! He asked me if I could get his mom to come to the car. Mike said he had another surprise for her waiting down at the car. I thought to myself, WOW... now this is a good son!
I went to the Red head's office and asked her to follow me down to the car that I wanted to show her something. The something was a big surprise to me! The son had kept one of the roses out of the bunch and had wrapped a dead copper-head around the single rose Now, keep in mind at the time we didn't know how dead this copperhead really was!
Red didn't care; she proceeded to big up the snake and begins chasing me with it. I still had my left leg in this big boot from my injury. I proceeded hopping as fast I could through the parking lot screaming my head off! You would think that someone in this big office building would have heard the screams and come to my defense! I finally got behind a big red truck and hid. This went on for a good 30 minutes or longer!
Red and her son finally left me alone and I made my way back up to the office. I went into the Bosses office completely out of breath. He asked what happened to me (as I was panting very loudly) I said to him..."What kind of fool son brings a rose with a snake wrapped around it to his mother"? He looked at me like I was the crazy one. He said she wouldn't do that! Hmm...
What he didn't know, in the meantime she decided to go wrap that dead, ranking snake around by his Jag. By the time he went to the parking garage it was dark out. Boss met the snake up close and personal! He called tell me about it and my reply was----you should have believed the Blonde!
Almost 13 years have past since this happened and we still get a kick out of the story. I want fall for that trick again!
