    Just Following Orders

    I can almost hear the orders from the boss that caused this sign to happen. (Snapped these pics this afternoon a mile or so away from my place.)

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Reminds me of the time when my brother who owned a service station told one of his employees to put a customer car on the lift and rotate the tires.
    Yup you can guess what the guy did. This really happened.

    If I was his boss I think I might give him a raise for creativity and thinking outside the box. Of course then I'd have to dock him for not thinking.

    What really caught my eye, after the sign, was the clear blue sky and beautiful mountains. Miss the southwest.

    The more I think about it, the funnier it gets.

    Maybe I'm getting a little slow in my old age.

    Enjoy,

    Jim, I may be getting even slower... it just dawned on me what the sign was all about...

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
