April Showers, a Floor Mat … and Your Car in a Ditch

As you sit behind the wheel of your car, in a ditch, watching the rain fall and the smoke rise from the hood by the light of your one working headlight you wonder, how did this happen?

Could it really be all about that welcome mat? You think back …

EARLIER TONIGHT …

You remember now. You were driving home from work, later than usual, in the dark. You were so tired. Your eyes kept closing on their own. You checked to make sure you remembered to wear your seatbelt.

When you woke up you were hitting the ditch.

EARLIER TODAY …

It had been a 17-hour day of phone calls, emails, staff issues to deal with. It was 4 o’clock before you realized you hadn’t eaten lunch. Why were you working so hard? Oh, that’s right.

LAST WEEK …

You had to move into a new office and getting everything up and running had put you so far behind you weren’t sure if you’d ever catch up. You had to move because …

TWO WEEKS AGO …

Right, it was that alien invasion. The news called them the Znorkians but it was easier to just say Martians and what difference did it make anyway?

THE DAY BEFORE THAT …

The aliens completely destroyed your offices. Thankfully everybody got out okay. You seem to remember it could have been prevented.

MINUTES BEFORE THAT …

Everybody in town had gone up to the roof to signal the aliens. Some scientist with the FBI had cracked the code of the alien language and was trying let everyone know how to write the word “friendly” in Znorkian on the roof so they would be spared.

The FBI called everyone in town to let them know, just in time. Why didn’t you get the call?

A FEW MINUTES BEFORE THAT …

Your receptionist left her desk, didn’t answer the phone even though it was ringing several times.

A FEW MINUTES BEFORE THAT …

She left her desk to help a man who had fallen in your waiting area.

JUST BEFORE THAT …

The man slipped on the floor and hit his head.

JUST BEFORE THAT …

He walked in from the rain.

AND JUST BEFORE THAT …

He didn’t wipe his feet on an Andersen Co. welcome mat because you never ordered one!

THE MORAL OF THE STORY

Make sure you order an Andersen Co. welcome mat to trap water as customers walk in the door. If you don’t, you might just end up in a ditch.
