Freak out-Flip out meltdown

Chained to the table, my jokester husband pulled this stunt on me , a payback for my meltdown. The other day he had gone to run errands, post office, etc., and was gone a little too long, or so I thought. You see, Richard is the nicest man in town and always takes time to chat with people, and chat and chat! He is easy going and laid back. I am the opposite, unfortunately I hit the ground running and never get as much accomplished as I think I should. I hide from people cause I don't think I have time to talk , and the daily production goals I set are often unattainable. (God is still working on me people.) So anyway eventually up strolls Richard, smiling, Richard is ALWAYS smiling, and at that moment he witnessed my freak out-flip out meltdown. "Why have you been gone so long?" I said. "How are we ever going to get this all done??!!" and on and on....Right before I burst into tears, I looked up and noticed he had chained his foot to his work table. Instead, I died laughing. But Richard never looked up, his head to the grind, he said to me, "I am not allowed to go anywhere until I finish my work, and I won't be eating lunch either today". Thank God he has a sense of humor. And NO, we didn't complete all the work, it will never all be done, isn't that great...........the more people buy, the more we create!!


  1. Oh, if only we could all be nice and smile all the time like Richard! He is making me smile right now and I can't even see him!

  2. This makes me think of my Dad!

  3. This story is so hilarious and true! I LOVE YOU! But I might argue who has the sweetest man in Carmine...Richard and Matt run a close race!
