But my co-workers, to this day, still think it's one of the funniest things that's ever happened. As soon as they found out I was going to be ok, they started using "sign langauge" and cracked jokes about it all.the.time.
And they still do.
Fast foward to last week. I had to run an errand for work to drop something off with one of our customers who happens to be a fish monger. On my way out, my boss asked me to pick up some wine herring and bring it back for him. I had never heard of it, but took his $20 and went on my way. I brought it back and he insisted we all taste it-luckily it wasn't nearly as bad as it looked haha
The next day, we were having our weekly meeting and he thanked me for getting his fish. He even said (jokingly) they would name a sandwich after me (having a sandwich, or any product, named after you here is a *huge* honor). When I asked what it would be he said...
Amanda's Hard of Herring!"
(PS My dad suggested the call it Amanda's Herring Aid-haha)
