Joe Fisher of NNR paid a visit to our office. Laura, our logistics coordinator, was out of the office. Joe thought it would be “cute” to rearrange Laura’s staplers knowing that Laura is a bit OCD (or CDO as she likes to put it) and would be quite disturbed by the changes on her desk. Here is a photo of her staplers as they should be:
Upon discovering that her desk had been tampered with, Laura simply told Joe that “paybacks are hell.” Joe had no idea.
After a few days on the road making sales calls, Joe returned to his office to find his Porsche up on cinder blocks on his desk:
Along with a ransom note:
It says “If you ever want to see your tires again, please deliver 1 shiny new [penny] per [tire] to Carol Diane Ober at Dog’s Go Mad.”
Not knowing who had “jacked” his tires, Joe immediately notified the press:
Joe was then contacted by the kidnappers who threatened his tires:
Joe saw the light at the same time he deducted exactly who Carol Diane Ober (CDO) at Dog’s Go Mad (DGO = GDM in alphabetical order) and came to his senses. In no time, he was at the GDM offices ransoming back his tires:
Lesson learned. You don’t mess with Laura.
And, all’s well that ends well. Laura is 4 cents richer and Joe’s Porsche is ready to roll.
