Let me start off by saying this is in NO WAY meant to downplay the situation in the south with regards to the hurricane. I have the greatest sympathy for those affected by the tragedy that was Hurricane Katrina. My company has a branch office in New Orleans, and of the 7 employees there, 6 have no homes to return to. It's a very sad situation, and the work that the New Orleans office handles daily has been heaped on my team in my office in Massachusetts, and all the agents here are stressed to the max, overworked, tired, and crabby.

SO. That being said. We need some lightheartedness on the board, and we need it soon.

Anyone have any thoughts?

I'm going to start off with a pretty good blonde joke I heard today.....here ya go..and I'm blonde...so no blonde bashing intended.

Last year I replaced all the windows in my house with those expensive
double-pane energy efficient kind. But this week, I got a call from
the contractor complaining that his work had been completed a whole year
and I had yet to pay for them.

Boy, oh boy, did we go around! Just because I'm blonde doesn't mean
that I am automatically stupid. So, I proceeded to tell him just what his
fast-talking sales guy had told me last year... that in one year the
windows would pay for themselves.

There was silence on the other end of the line, so I just hung up, and
he hasn't called back.

Guess he felt really stupid, huh???
