Today was my first full day at the zoo, in my new volunteer position. After 40 hours of training it was a lot of build up…. to say I was nervous was a little bit of an understatement. No matter how much I read, there is just no way this brain can memorize 400 pages of zoo manual. I was also nervous to meet my new co-workers and day captain (supervisor).
Well, by the end of the day, I had a new nickname for my new supervisor…. Inappropriate Grandma. After this week I plan to come prepared, with pen and paper, to copy down all of her inappropriateness. This week all I had was my cell phone and she got a little po’ed when she caught me with it once.
So, anyhoodle…. here are a few I remember….
~ Ohhhh! Look at the lemurs! They are licking their nether-regions!
~ (little kid telling us his life story….)
Me – Isn’t it cute when kids think that you want to know EVERYTHING that happened to them ALL day long?
Inappropriate G-ma – Yah. They never know when to shut up.
Then the Dad stared at us like this…. O _ o
(me digging through my pockets)
IG – You should REALLY think about getting one of these! (slaps her fanny pack)
Me – Ummmm….. I don’t…….errrrrrr…… think so.
IG – WHY? Because you don’t have a FAAAAAAANNNNNNNEEEEY?!?
(everyone within 50 ft STARED at my fanny, thanks EVER so much Inappropriate Grandma!)
And my PERSONAL favorite!
(she dropped something out of HER fanny pack)
Me – You dropped your cold medicine.
IG – Actually that is my Correctol.
(That’s right Internets. Correctol. Laxative.)
Weeeee! Good times at the zoo.
