There used to be a lot of jokes made when a guy ‘got short’ (term for one who has a little time left in the military or on the job). That produced the 'Short timers Attitude'. Also Just about everyone had a short-timers calendar. I made one for Sherry when she had a month to do, I put it in the garage, she tore off the days as she got in the car to head for work. I have her tearing off her last day in the picture above.
“I’m so short I could stand on my head and gargle p-nut butter ‘til get out!”
“I’m so short an ant can trip over me!”
“I’m so short I can’t even reach the s@%t detail list.”
“I’m so short I can’t reach the urinal.”
“I’m so short I see boot treads.”
“I’m too short to take a break.”
“I’m so short, my hat drags the ground.”
“I’m so short I need a ladder to climb on a golf ‘T’”
Right now my mind is so short I can’t remember any more. There was a time the fifty of them would come to mind.
It is a good feeling to be short on any job, when you are anticipating another. So about this cold, or crud, “I’m so short one more box of Kleenex should do it.”
