Funny but embarrassing by suzulu on 28 April 2010 1:32pm
 
There is a fire station next door to my office building. Yesterday lunchtime I went out to the shop and have to pass the fire station. Thought there were a lot of firemen milling about as I walked past. When I came back from the shop about 15 or so firemen were lined up in front of the doors. Oh no, I thought, I have to walk past this lot! (They were HUNKY!) I was trying to keep a straight face and then as I got halfway down the line, one of them (presumably the sergeant or whatever) bellowed out "Attention!" and they all stood to attention as I walked past. It was soooo embarrassing and funny. I don't know if they were waiting for someone important to come along, maybe visiting the fire station, I don't know but didn't see anyone.

One of my colleagues is now going to call me Sue, V.I.P.! Still don't know what it was all about.

You made me laugh Sue, how cute indeed and I am sure I won't have kept a straight face (at least - the *very* least - I'd have done as Loretto said, plus giggled all along the way))). Well just wanted to post something to your thread and say hello, it's been a while since we last met and I rather miss you, cheers
Katia

Lol Sue! It sounds like their morning drill but I've got visions of a Carry On movie in my head where " ooh aah, they all stood to attention ? " :)

Hahahaaaa! I love those old Carry On films!

Hello, Katia! Hope you are well! Have you been to London lately?

Welcome back, Katia. Pay no mind to the fake Russian and comments about him/her. We know YOU are a sweetheart!

My face would've been burning Sue but I would've enjoyed it nevertheless!!

We all have to refer to Sue as a V.I P. now ;)
