FLIRT TIPPING - We Meet *Claude*, The Confused Duck
What do you do when you forget your LOTTO tickets?
You Write ***Thank You Notes!***
Like this one...
I accompanied a friend to swap out his bottle of Propane.
We go into the office.
One Big Room - with four Desks. a Woman at each desk.
Cute brunette closest to the front door. And she has a 18 inch tall duck in her cubicle. YELLOW Body - ORANGE Beak - Sunglasses, bow tie, Party hat.
My friend is doing his Propane biz.
So I ASK the Girl, "What is your name?"
Then pull out my pen and 3 by 5 cards and Write a
3 by 5 Card Message.
I LUV Your Duck.
What is it's name?
MARYANN says in a shy voice, "My Duck Doesn't have a name."
I say, "So would it be OK if I suggest a name?"
Maryann says, "OK."
ME - "He looks like a CLAUDE.
Mary Ann says, "I like that name."
Then I look closer.
ME - In a LOUDER VOICE - "OOOOOPS. Claude the Duck is wearing a party hat that says PRINCESS." Do you think Claude is a switch hitter?"
LAUGHTER from the other women in the room.
The girl is REALLY shy and won't look at me. She stares into her computer screen.
ME - "Claude or Claudia. Maybe Ole Claude is a Hermaphrodite. Both sexes at the same time."
The other 3 Women at their desks are SMIRKING.
Darting Glances at MaryAnn and me.
The Atmosphere in the room was VERY Quiet and Subdued when we came thru
the front door.
But LOTS of SMILING Faces when we left to get our propane tank filled up.
Except MaryAnn - her face was RED.
Betcha She Gets RAZZED about her Hermaphrodite Duck CLAUDE.
