DID THE GUY WHO WAS IN BIG!! BIG!! TROUBLE!! 😈 GET “OUT OF TROUBLE” ?

DID THE GUY WHO WAS IN BIG!!  BIG!! TROUBLE!! 😈

GET “OUT OF TROUBLE” WHEN HE RETURNED THE STAMP COLLECTION TO HIS MOTHER-IN-LAW & BROTHER-IN-LAW.

 

OR WAS HE STILL “SLIDING IN A SLIPPERY COW PIE”? 💩

 

HELLO COLLECTORS,

 

AS MENTIONED BEFORE, THE OUTCOME IS COMPLICATED.  

OF ALL THE GUESSES SUBMITTED, NOT ONE PERSON CAME UP WITH THE SURPRISE ENDING!  READ ON IF YOU WANT TO RISK IT….

 

Recapping. The stamp collection has left MJR’s offices and is headed, faster than a speeding bullet, directly to the disgruntled mother-in-law and brother-in-law’s home. 

 

END OF STORY RIGHT? NO! THE SLIPPING & SLIDING CONTINUES AS THE PLOT CONGEALS!

 

A month goes by and “knock, knock” at the door. 🤨 Sorta the same knock I’d heard before.  Of course, it was the family member (handling the estate), specifically - the stamp collection. 

 

His striking full head of white hair was not as well groomed as the last time I saw him. I checked his chunky frame for “silver bullet holes” but his body appeared intact; however, he was clutching the colourful sturdy bag of stamps.😀

 

He seemed rattled and it was obvious to me that he did not want to be at MJR’s offices. With some trepidation, he timidly related that, after some scrutiny, his brother-in-law decided he DID NOT WANT the stamp collection.

 

I looked the collection over, flagged a few items that I definitely remembered. And…  Then what? 🧐

 

Although, it was an “obvious oversight” that he “had not” shown the collection to the rest of family member, I realized that “he had jumped through a number of hoops” to finally arrive again on my doorstep. 

 

So…  Hip-pity-hop into another cow 💩 pie…???

 

Oh, what the hell.

 

I FULFILLED MY COMMITMENT!  DONE DEAL! 

Paid for the stamp collection! Lived happily ever after!  

The End! 🤩

 

HOLD IT! HOLD IT! THERE IS MORE TO THIS STORY!

 

The shocking, surprising end!  The complicated part!

 

Another two weeks passed and unannounced, again, I hear a “knock, knock” at the door. No, this is NOT A RERUN!

 

Believe it or not it was the “family guy” (who handled the estate and stamp collection). At first he said nothing, just quickly handed me two stamp sheets. 

 

I was astonished. My immediate response “what happened?” 

 

In exasperation, he blurted out how when he was at his brother-in-law’s place, he noticed two Canada Post stamp sheets laying there, unopened!  

 

He immediately questioned his brother-in-law, “are these sheets part of the original stamp collection?” 

 

The response “yeah, well, maybe...”  

 

The indignant family member (handling the estate) immediately grabbed the two sheets from the premises and returned them directly to MJR!

 

Stamp sheets, now in my (MJR’s) possession I conveyed my fervent appreciation. The guy with the white hair, chunky frame and always in athletic wear turned away from the door and was gone! 

 

Some of you may wonder the FACE VALUE of the two sheets of (50) fifty. 

 

One Sheet of  (50) x $1.00 = $50.00

Second Sheet of (50) x $1.50 = $75.00

 

NOW YOU KNOW THE “SHOCKING SURPRISE” ENDING.

 

TRUE STORY!!  YEP!!

What do you think of that one?

- JB
