Work Humor: 11/30/2011

I am always on the prowl for things that strike me as funny.  We spend a lot of our individual lives in the work place…well at least if you are one of the 99% anyway.  My father-in-law works for the railroad so I thought I would open this segment with something I thought he might find amusing.

    This gave me quite the chuckle. I’m going to pass it on to my dad who loves trains and has this kind of a sense of humour. 🙂 Thanks for the laugh today.
