Wacky Wednesday...tattletails on da naybor

Amember dis piksher of da house sitters car snowblowed in...we'z gonna tattle on him today. He was furry entertaining fur mom and dad.
Germaine and hubby went away fur Easter, dey left on Wednesday and afore dey left she told mom dat hubby's brofur would be house sitting..."please keep an eye on things cuz brother is not the sharpest tool in the shed". Really, that's what she said!
So, dis guy who mom has nicknamed Bumbledorf is der fur exactly three hours when he rings our doorbell, he needs some help. He was emptying the kitty litter and dropped the pan in the garbage can. Holy crap, first of all, it's scoopable litter! It's now like a rock in the bottom of the garbage can and the pan is laying in it and he's to dumb to tip the trash can and get it out.
Thursday, about 1 pm, the doorbell rings. It's Bumbledorf, he's locked his keys in the car, while it's running...dad goes over, gets policemans slim jim out of naybors garage and opens car door. 3 pm, doorbell rings. Yeah, yoo know who it is, this time he's locked himself out of the house! Mom takes her key for the naybors front door and lets him in, checks on Oliver, cuz, yoo know, she's concerned now. He's fine, food dish is full, clean water, SCOOPED litter pan...okay.
Friday, mom hears Bumbledorf snowblowing...okay, that's good. Dad sez he's using the wrong setting on snowblower for the amount and weight of snow out there. Mom sez "leave it alone" she's not rescuing the dummy again. Mom goes out to shovel path to garage and looks over and sees Bumbledorf has snowblowed his own car in! She comes back in the house and pulls dad out to look at it, dey both come back in laffing so hard dey can hardly stand up. Dad hasta go over with our snowblower and get his car out because he broke the drive belt on theirs by HAVING IT IN THE WRONG SETTING!
Saturday, Bumbledorf rings bell, asks how to get side garage door open because he left remote opener in garage and closed the door with the wall button as he came out. Mom calls Germaine's cell phone to ask if she keeps a key for the side door somewhere. She tells Germaine all of the things Bumbledorf has done since they left...Germaine is laffing so hard she can't tell mom where the key is. Hubby takes phone and tells mom where key is, mom tells him what Bumbledorf has done...hubby does not laff. Hubby sez many words from the bad word list...
Sunday, yup, doorbell rings. It is naybor from next door to Germaine, do we know who the little red car belongs to cuz it is parked in front of their driveway and they need to get to church. Mom sez it belongs to the naybors housesitter. M sez, we thawt so but we rang the bell and no one answered. Mom calls, no answer. Mom, dad and M go next door and ring bell, knock on door, no answer. Mom goes around knocking on windows, Oliver looks out of bedroom window at her and says - meow. What did yoo expect, he's a cat. Mom gets to bathroom window, aha, movement. She hears Bumbledorf yelling something. Bathroom window is glass block wit a small vent, vent opens and Bumbledorf sez "I'm locked in here, can yoo help?" Mom goes home, gets house key and small screwdriver, let's herself and M in, puts screwdriver into little lock hole and turns. Bumbledorf is free. It's not his fawlt, Germaine should haf told him the lock was broken. But, then again, why would she think dummy would need to lock bathroom door...maybe he was afraid Oliver would see him on the potty? Turns out car is out of gas, stopped right in front of drive...apperently Bumbledorf doesn't know that if the engine stops you still haf forward momentum as long as you don't put on the brakes. M and mom push car out of way of drive and mom goes into Germaine's garage, gets gas can and puts a couple gallons in car so he can get to gas station. Germaine and Hubby came home Sunday night. Mom goes over wif der Easter basket and Bumbledorf is getting ready to leave, Monday he goes back to his job as...AN ENGINEER!

Mom says it makes perfect sense for him to be an engineer. They are all book smart - but most couldn't find their way out of a paper bag. Thanks for the great story - it made us all laugh.

MoMo said...

This is SS; Momo is still in hospital and I need some diversions. This is so funny and I do hope he is not typical of engineers. Which reminds me of an ex-boyfriend who was a very smart cookie in university where he studied civil engineering. When he went to Malaysia he was put incharge of building mosques. I asked him whether he had any experience in building dooms he blithely replied that Allah would look after his faithful and therefore his dooms would be perfectly safe. I was ever so glad when he was transferred to building roads. Maybe he was right about Allah; no mosque collapse has been reported on during the time he was involved in the project or even years later.

Not the sharpest tool in the shed, huh? It sounds like even that's too much credit!

PS Our Dad is an Engineer!

Victor Tabbycat said...

OMG! Now Mom's laffin an laffin! He sounds like her naybor at werk. He's an economist wif a PhD rather than an engineer, but he's mulched his carpet an vacuumed his lawn. He gotted in 3 car wrecks in 3 days wif 3 diffrint cars (all fender benders). He's stubborn an forces fings, usually breakin sumfing. He rushes an always just makes fings take longer. He nefur reads instructions. He crossed the jumper cables on hims car, shortin it out, an his excuse fur not readin the structions was, "I've jumped it lotsa times." Then he shoulda KNOWN the rite way to put them!!!
Yup, Bumbledorf is a good name. Good fing Germaine (an Oliver) has a good sense of humor.

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Oh my goodness, Mom had to stop a few times to wipe her eyes. That's hysterical! Bumbledorf is not a smart as a 5th grader, is he? I guess that why he had to become an Engineer, he can only use the side of the brain he has.

Good thing the neighbors had a housesitter, or you wouldn't have had anything to do while they were gone!

Cat-a-holic, Lilly and Laila said...

Our Mom is laffin' so hard she can't stop. We nefur saw her laugh out loud reading a blog before! We think the neighbors should find another house sitter the next time. They are furry lucky to have you as neighbors!

Wrigley & Cobalt said...

We iz not quite sure what to say, haha!! This is way too funny. Good thing they asked you to make sure everything was okay or there could have been a huge disaster. (Not that there wasn't enough of one already!!)

Eric and Flynn said...

Hahahahahaha that is the funniest fing ever. Mum wuz laffing so much dad had to come and see what wuz happening.

Forty Paws said...

OMDawg! They actually requested that he housesit? They must not be too bright either. They are lucky the house is still intact and not blown up or something! This really made Maw laugh. She is gonna haf Paw read it.

We kinna think Beins do some silly things sometimes, but we thought it would take a squillion of them ta do ALL those silly things!

The Big Thing is laffin his eyes out! An he points out that most doors have hinges wif da "connectin pins" on the inside of the room. He took a look in da bafroom an found stuff that could tap then out! MOL!

TBT also says he sure hopes da Brother is one a them absent-minded genious types... Or else that he "engineers" somethin harmless like PingPong Paddles!

TheSlyCat said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! That is too funny. How is that guy an engineer?
Maybe he is the Easter train engineer at the mall?
But I wouldn't trust him driving anything with kidbeans on it.
