What’s the funniest or strangest thing that’s ever happened to you on the job?
When I was out in Waseca on an appointment at a state facility and I happened to lock my keys in my car. My contact happened to be the one in charge of maintenance so he gathered up what tools he could and after about 20 minutes we were able to hook the key chain and unlock the doors. Yes it was embarrassing but I also felt a sense of achievement, like winning one of those “claw machine” games.
