Security Guard Messes Up Story

Late Friday security guard Leon Wellell began to tell his co-worker Randy Stiller about his days as a retail salesperson. Only minutes later his story got lost on a critical detail- the name of some Microsoft software.

The story started well enough: “I used to sell high end audio, you know, home entertainment and all that. Then computers came in big so I switched to that,” Wellell began.

“What year was that?” asked Stiller.

At this point Wellell’s narrative started to stutter.

“Well, it was the year Microsoft came out with that one software that was so popular.”

“Windows?”

“No.”

“Excel?”

“No.”

“Word?”

“No.”

“Powerpoint?”

“No.”

“What was it?”

“I don’t know.”

The two guards looked at each other for a moment and then returned to their paperwork.
