Frantically I threw on a suit.
“OH NO!” I thought. “MY TIE!”
My Dad was out of town and wasn’t there to help me, and for the life of me I did not know how to tie a necktie!
So, I grabbed a tie and ran out the door.
“Excuse me sir”, I said to the crossing guard, “I have an important job interview, can you please help me to tie this necktie?!”
“Sure”, said the guard, “just lie down on this bench”.
Well if someone was going to help me, I wasn’t going to ask any questions.
After he finished and the tie looked good, I just had to ask why him I had to lie down.
“Well”, the guard said, “in my previous job, I learned how to tie ties on other people when they were lying down.
“What was your previous job?”, I asked incredulously.
“I ran a morgue” was his reply.
