Q&A :: oh, those humorous employees…

The Question:
We all need a little humor in this business!!
Tell us something funny, ridiculous, or crazy that one of your employees has said.
For instance, I once had an employee complain that she was tired of designing pretty arrangements…

The Answers:
I was in the middle of a very intense and quick set-up for a wedding and one of my crew disappeared. We only had a hour to get the room set so I was a little freaked when I noticed the jobs I had tasked her with had not been done. About 20 minutes after she vaporized she reappeared. When I asked her where she had gone she told me, “I went to my car because it was time for my break.” What? There is no crying in baseball and there are no breaks during one hour wedding set-ups. I suggested a more permanent break might be more to her liking.

A coworker on the phone kept asking “who is the diseased?” we said Liz, it is “who is the deceased” … the call continued properly.

I had a very large wedding and my family was helping me deliver. The wedding was in a hotel and a stage was set up for the ceremony. On the stage was a rug to help hide the stage. My mother and I, as well as the bride’s father was there and my mother commented: ” well with all the money they are spending on this wedding you think they could have chosen a nicer rug to put out on the stage.” The father replied ” well this rug is a family heirloom and has special meaning.” Needless to say I was speechless and embarrassed. Afterwards I had a long talk with my family to say we love everything a clients chooses because they give us money!!!!

As far as funny things said by an employee, I can only think about the afternoon that one of my gals was telling me about her 2 twin boys and how it was a problem teaching them to use the toilet. They weren’t quite tall enough to make it into the toilet bowl while standing, and then she told us if they sit down, they tend to pee over the edge of the toilet. She was a little more graphic in her description here. There were 3 of us working and we laughed so hard we cried. That conversation still brings a smile to my face and I chuckle. I love these moments!
