Trash talking?

Bea is the cleaning lady at work. I never know what to say to her when we pass in the hallway, so I usually toss out something intelligent like, "There's Bea!"

Yesterday, I was inspired.
As she rolled her trashcan-on-wheels into the breakroom , I gestured to her cart. "You ever take that thing down the stairs, Bea? I think you should. Just once."

"You're funny," she snorted. "They all tell me you're funny. I never listen to you on the radio, but they tell me you're funny."

"What? It's not like I'm suggesting you ride the thing down. Just give it a shove and watch it from the top step."

She only shook her head.

Don't mess with the cleaning lady. Ever. Else you'll find yourself riding the cart down the steps.

I totally would have suggested she ride it down. But offer her a crash helmet first.

Better check the seat before you sit for a while - Cleaning Ladies have ways to get their own back.....
