I once worked with a lady who would do some very strange and very silly things. One of her finest mistakes was when she ordered some envelopes for the use of posting mail for the company. She was having some problems with getting the envelopes to stick after she had licked them. So she returned them to the supplier and got another box to replace. The same thing happened. So when she went to return them the suplier asked what had been going wrong. Once she explained that the glue was not working because they would not stick once she had licked them. This was when the supplier informed her she had been licking self sticking envelopes and had in fact been licking off the glue.

  • Ha ha ha this gave me a giggle, even though I predicted the outcome. Sometimes, the self sticking ones don’t stick without licking

  • Reminds me of when I was a little girl, and my Nana went to the bakery and asked for some fresh sliced bread. When we got it home, and she opened the paper bag, she was mortified. It was covered in poppy seeds, which she thought was cockroach poo. So she took it back and complained to the baker, and they tried not to laugh while they told her they were seeds.
