Anyone call for a Chaplain?

So my job is an interesting job. Some, that should say MOST, days are monotonous-but like today, still interesting. It consists of just a few things: informing people that the government owes them money (it’s actually true), checking up on cases, signing letters, and making phone calls. That last one is what gets me sometimes. I’m becoming more aware of my inability to pronounce names. But anyway, today at work I had me a pretty interesting call.

I never actually spoke to the person, just got the answering machine and boy, did it take me for surprise! I probably shouldn’t say the name of the person I was trying to contact (I’m not sure that would be kosher with my job–and I’m not ready to lose it quite yet) so we’ll just say I was trying to get a hold of Bob. I was preparing to leave a message, one I have memorized by now, when the answering machine came on.

Who would have known that Bob’s number and the Chaplain’s for Niagra County Jail were just one number off? That’s right I called the Chaplain. At first I thought it was a joke. (You know, some people have weird messages for their answering machines). Yeah, it wasn’t a joke. But I had me a good laugh! I’m not sure what I would have done had he actually answered. Hmm..that could have been an odd conversation.

Needless to say, if anyone needs the number for a very nice sounding Chaplain for the Niagra County Jail, just let me know!

Hmm..yes, that one was hilarious! My favorite is how you keep in contact with him. Which of the "dreamers" do you think he is? Good times at work :)

If I had to guess I would say the dream shaker......
