    "They layed down his clothes, yes HIS clothes
    Down by the riverside, down by the riverside, down by the riverside
    They layed down his clothes down by the riverside
    Now he ain't got no clothes no more........"

    Now ladies, this is not a joke!!! :-D This happened to us today... My hubby is away working and he left some clothes at his last job. A friend sent them on and they were left at the office of a transport company waiting to be put on the next truck going to the place he works at now. Today he called me to tell me he got a bag full of clothes, but not his clothes and the ones he got were all new and all sorts of different sizes. So I said I'd check with the company, they probably mixed up the bags.... :?
    Well the news were....now sit down take a tissue to wipe the tears as I was in histerics about it.... :lol: The transport company's boss and his wife go down to the river every week-end, where the homeless and other poor souls stay, also some aboriginals, to bring them some food and clothing. And this bag, OUR bag, got somehow mixed up and landed there. The family that opened it were thrilled about all those nice clothes - I bet....
    The boss's wife was really really sorry :oops: She said she was so much in a panic when se realized what happened she went to the shops and bought a whole lot of clothes, not knowing my husbands size of course and send them on instead with a big box of chocolates to say sorry!!!
    Sadly to say, they are not the type of clothes he wears so we were told he should go and buy what he needs to replace it and send them the docket and they would reimburse us!!! :thumbup:
    I really couldn't stop laughing and this lady was so happy I took it in such a light way as she felt really bad. As we say in Australia: "sh.... happens"!!!
    To make matters worse, I posted the above sung on my FB and then have to take comments like "have you been drinking???" or "oh, is your washing machine broken too???" - enough to send me into histerics again!!!!! :)
    Now you all have an awesome day and take life the easy way, like me, it saves you haven't stomach ulcers!!!!

    I think I'd be in hysterics also. Nice that your husband works for such a thoughtful person.
