Charlie arrived at work and would
begin his day with a very important task... gathering up all the screwdrivers in RM’s toolbox. Next... he headed
over to the wooden work bench. Grabbing a hammer... he drove those screwdrivers right into the bench!?!
RM would show up for work, and before he started his day... he would have
to remove his embedded tools.
daily scheme played out as planned... until the day RM didn’t bother to address the tool/bench situation. He just
calmly began his work. Hmmmm... odd? Charlie did not get the ‘show’ he had hoped for.
wait no more, time to get to work.
However, when Charlie opened his tool box, there was a little
problem... his screwdrivers were gone.
For a moment he thought
that someone, most likely RM, was hiding them. Then the realization hit... The tools Charlie had just finished embedding into the bench...
were his own! RM hid his screwdrivers from his tool box and replaced them with Charlie’s.
What a clever pay back! (Really funny to me - since - heaven forbid anyone touched Dad’s tools!! I would have
loved to have been a fly on the wall...)
mind, the men could not fully enjoy the moment. That ‘no goofing around, we’re running a tight shop’ thing meant that the men had to contain themselves! This behavior would not go over well
with Haug. The men had to conceal their laughter, lest
the reason for such be revealed... Must have been difficult!
