Marty's Joke of the Day

Marty's Joke of the day is an internet column that I've written for more than 5 years.
I tell humorous stories about my "sweet wife" and raising our 4 young sons, named #1, #2, #3, and #4.
After 5 years of story telling, in August of 2005, doctors found a brain tumor in son #4.
Our focus here has changed little as we still try to find humor in our lives.

Food n Pagers

Thursday, December 09, 2004

Now that I’m at my new job, it’s an eye opener to see the
differences in my eating habits. First, I think in the last 5 days,
I’ve been to two luncheon meetings, two holiday Christmas party
lunches, and one out-of-town greasy spoon lunch. My sweet wife is
starting to run out of Tupperware for the leftovers I never take to
work. But, tomorrow is different. No lunches scheduled. And, we had
a good dinner tonight so I’m actually looking forward to one of my
leftover lunches.

It’s also funny to see the different type of people that go to
meetings I now go to. During one of the meetings late last week,
there were about 120 tech guys talking to each other, mostly about
how a Chinese company just bought IBM’s PC business, and how just 2
months ago my company opted to drop Dell, and go with IBM. Now
they’re not sure what to do.

But the funniest thing was about 30 minutes into the presentation,
about 70% of the people got paged on their pagers. All within about
3 minutes of each other. I never did find out what was going on,
but most of them just slapped their pagers back on their belts and
went on watching the meeting. I wonder what would happen if the
paging system went down...

Enjoy today’s Jokes!
