Caption This: Walking In The Dark

Due to human error, we were walking in the dark last night. Worse, our dinner was late. Very late.

walking in the dark

A repair person was scheduled to stop by the house at 3 yesterday for a quick job. We were warned our walk might be slightly delayed, which proved to be true when the technician arrived late. Things deteriorated when he stayed for 3 and a half hours. When he finally left, we went for a very late stroll and by the time we returned, we were walking in the dark. Of course, now our dinner was very, very, very late. You can probably imagine the grumbling during the walk, so let’s hear it. It’s Caption This day, so what were we saying?

    If technicians arrive late to my house when I schedule them, I reschedule. My time and my dogs is important too. Dogs get Sabo involved.
