It's me, it's me, Franklin the Bordernese, let's talk quietly please.
Come down here close to the box with the light in it so you can see my face real good. Mom is resting.
Me and Penelope are not happy. Mom going to werk is bad, bad, bad, bad, very bad. You know I'm serious because I didn't tease Penelope by calling her Penlapee.
An instigator called Mom and asked her questions and questions and questions and questions until she got so tired that she cried. Me and Penelope were upset. Mom doesn't cry very often, and usually when she cries, it's because she's happy.
The instigator asked other people questions, too. The instigator decided that there wasn't any evidence that the human bean person said what Mom told about. The human bean also said he didn't say the bad things.
I say that if there isn't any substantiation (wow that's a big word) that the human bean said things, then there also isn't any substantiation that he didn't say them. And why are that human bean's words worth more than Mom's words?
Me and Penelope never bite. I've never growled. Penelope has only growled once. I think that we can figger out biting and growling. If we find that human bean person, we will growl and we will bite him because Mom is our Mom. She's the only Mom for us. No human bean should be bad to her.
That's all I gots to say except that Mom's bruises are all going away.
Okay. I love you because you are not that human bean person. Bye bye.
|I am practicing my growl.|
We gots Daddy Dunne Wooters and Human Brother on our side, too. I wonder if they know how to bite and growl. We can teach them if we haf to.
|This is how Daddy Dunne Wooters shows that he cares.|
What the HELL !ReplyDelete
I have a cane and know how to use it !
pissed off parsnip
That's very nice Mrs. Parsnip, but maybe Agatha and iWinston can join us in growling and biting.Delete
I am SO sorry to hear this. Curses on that human bean for being bad and then lying about it, which I guess is not too surprising because if he said bad stuff in the first place then of course he's going to be quite comfortable denying it.ReplyDelete
Tell your mom for me that no matter what the outcome of the instigation, she knows the truth and she must keep her head high. And then give her some big kisses to show her you love her.
We always kiss Mom. All she has to do is say "kiss" and we kiss her. Sometimes she doesn't ask and we kiss her anyway. When she has her feets up on the footrest we kiss her toes. What you said for her to do is pretty much what Daddy Dunne Wooters said, too.Delete
This is distressing to read and I feel so bad for you. I hope karma strikes that evil bean down! And I second what jenny_o said: hold your head high no matter what. You know the truth and what is right.ReplyDelete
Hugs to you.
Thank you, Mrs. Jennifer. We are telling Mom all this stuff. Lots of people are not bad human beans.Delete
Oh, dear. I've just had one of those weeks too, and my Nougat & Clara Schumann could tell your Franklin and Penelope all about it. It's bound to get better from now on because-- what else? Canines are forever optimistic.ReplyDelete
Me and Penelope think that things will get better because if they don't, then we will take over.Delete
Add me to the long list of people who are hissing and spitting (and prepared to bite) on behalf of your mom. I am also less than happy with the people who didn't believe her.ReplyDelete
We think it's just the instigator who doesn't believe. The other people got asked questions and they answered, but no one was there to hear what the bad human bean said. Every buddy should always believe Mom (unless she's making up stuff to be funny) and if they don't believe Mom then they are not our buddies.Delete
I know how to growl and bite. Just say the word.ReplyDelete
Are you a person or a doggy like us? I don't know many persons who growl and bite, but we like you for saying you will.Delete
If you punch him in the nose and no one sees it, I suppose that didn't happen either...ReplyDelete
Let's hope, in the very least, that the bean is on notice and will be a better human being from here on out.
Me and Penelope figger that the bean knows he's being watched now.Delete
Hi Franklin. I kind of understand how you feel. My mom used to cry when she came home from work because she worked with a bad human bean too. That human bean did bad things and mom saw but couldn't tell anybody because she was scared. Finally that bad human bean got caught by somebody else and got fired. Mom was happy. I hope the human bean that said bad things to your mom ends up the same way. Tell your mom that the tooth always comes out eventually. Love, ZoeyReplyDelete
Thanks, Zoey! Mom told us that your Human Sister got a good job. Our job is taking care of Mom. Karma will catch up to the bad bean.Delete
Oh Franklin, I'm so sorry to hear your Mom has this trouble at work. I hope things improve.ReplyDelete
Mom has been talking to us and Daddy Dunne Wooters and Human Brother about stuff she might do to make things better.Delete
Nasty human beans sure can make life miserable, especially at werk! I'm so sorry your Mom is going through this, Franklin. Maybe she can find a way to turn on her smartphone recorder next time the bad guy says something? Figures he would lie. I'm sure your Mom never does, because she's a good human bean. Shame on the instigator! Here's hoping the situation will be resolved, soon. Sending hugs! ♥ReplyDelete
Mom isn't supposed to have to be around the bad bean anymore. If he tries to bother her, she will call the security guards if we aren't there to growl and bite.Delete
With humans--women still have a harder time being believed over men and people in a position of more power are usually believed over people with less power. Will the world ever change?! So very sorry to hear that. I hope she starts recording him. I think the workplace is plenty public enough for her to record. ;)ReplyDelete
Mom won't let him talk to her ever again. She's going to work with a different bean. We hope the other bean is a some buddy.Delete
Franklin, just so you know, there are nasty human beans everywhere. My husband is dealing with one at his work - making it a very hostile work environment. He's retiring earlier than planned because, same as your mom, we can't prove anything. Give Mom a few licks, cuddle with her and tell her you'll protect her. Good boy, Franklin.ReplyDelete
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I am a good boy. Daddy Dunne Wooters is on his way here right now. He's going to take me for a ride in his car and we will get Mom some chicken noodle soup because chicken noodle soup makes everything better.Delete
I'm sorry that your mother has to work with such bad human beans. You have every right to growl at them. Growl away!ReplyDelete
Grrrrrrrrr. Did that sound mean? I am a nice dog, but I wanna sound mean.Delete
Well, F, I hope your mom prevails. Or, I have two canes, and will bring both.ReplyDelete
Mom has a walker. Maybe she could pick it up and hit that bean over the head with it.Delete
Bad human beans aren't humans at all. They're stinkin' dung beetles. Don't worry. Karma has a way of biting bad beans in the butt. In the meantime, tell your mom to hang in there. The people... and pups... who matter know she's telling the truth.ReplyDelete
Mrs. Susan, you always know the right things to say to dogs and their moms.Delete
Human beans are always tough to cook.ReplyDelete
I didn't know that human beans could be cooked. On the stove or in the oven?Delete
Tell your mom to buy a digital recorder and every time she gets near the bean pull it from her pocket and turn it on.ReplyDelete
The bean will get the message.
No more bean for Mom. She will werk with different people and maybe she will call a lawyer.Delete
The more I'm around human beans, the more I like baked beans.ReplyDelete
I've never had baked beans. They might be bad for a dog's tummy.Delete
Maybe I should come down there and have a meeting of the minds with that human bean. I can be very persuasive if need be, but the look in my eye should be convincing enough.ReplyDelete
That's a very nice offer, but we already have Human Brother so you don't have to travel far from your home.Delete
That human bean person should be disciplined, and not in a fun way. This will happen again to others, and the least an employer needs to do is give that bean a warning and write up. As for your mommy, she should be disciplined in a very fun way. Please tell this to Daddy Dunne Wooters. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Love you all.
Daddy Dunne Wooters was here all night on Friday. Me and Penelope hardly got any sleep.Delete
Hi Franklin - your poor mommy ... it is such a difficult situation to deal with ... I'm just glad you and Penelope are there for her when she gets home. Good luck to your Mommy ... take care and carry on with the licks and caring ... with thoughts - HilaryReplyDelete
Me and Penelope are always here for Mom.Delete
I am so sorry to hear this. Condoned bad behavior is on the up rise.ReplyDelete
Yeah, we heard about that. Mom says it has to do with that yucky man who calls himself a president.Delete
Oh Franklin I am sorry your mum is upset and cried, some people are just meanReplyDelete
Yeah, I don't know much about mean because I am always with people who love me, but I don't like for Mom to be upset.Delete
Thanks for telling, us Franklin. Tell mom that that guy is a dick, and a bully and that she shouldn't take it, and allow his insecurities to get her down. If he's mean again, it is okay to stand up to him, even kick him in the nuts, or you can definitely bite him, Franklin. Send mom my love. Hugs to you and Penelope.ReplyDelete
Is it okay if I bite his nuts? Are they cashews or peanuts or pecans?Delete
I dearly love Franklin and Penelope ~ Now even more so!!! I'm glad they have your back, Janie! Snarky, mean people at work are the worst. I'm sorry you are experiencing this. Sending you a big hug!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Louise. I love hugs.Delete
