My other job is………..

Anyone remember the days of The Secret Shopper, where people were hired to frequent certain business outlets and report on service and the like?
Hubby applied for such a job but was turned down, but sometimes I wonder if they missed out because both of us are so friendly and nice, we can practically find a member of staff’s inside leg measurement in just a few minutes as people talk to us.

Now it would be funny if  I had an alias job, and this morning I could have owned up to being an undercover HSE operative.

The day started more or less as normal. Hubby took the dog out, I put the kettle on and went to do my morning ablutions.
The bloody smoke alarm went off when I was starkers, and got louder as I frantically tried to get dressed.
I went out of the bedroom door to see sleepy-eyed people in slippers and dressing gowns evacuating the building, AND IT WAS ALL MY FAULT!

The alarm went off because the kettle didn’t switch itself off when it boiled and the steam sailed across the alarm sensor.
And I thought it was bad enough on the boat, as ours went off every time I used the frying pan or steamed my veg!
As I apologised to everyone at breakfast, I could’ve said it was just a drill, and I was testing the equipment for the annual HSE certificate!


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
