Stan was confident that the new sign would have them flocking in and he’d be rushed off his feet.
This was his first endeavour as Owner rather than employee and when he’d seen the ad for custom-made signs, he’d jumped at the chance to design his own and put his personal mark on the place, so sent off his order.
The guys were fitting it today, at no extra cost, and he went outside to see how things were going.
He was far from happy.
It should have read The Hungry Beaver, showing the animal tossing steaks on a barbecue.

 

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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.
