Our Parish Priest wanted to do a "welcoming room" in the rectory. He thought his office wasn't decorated well enough, he wanted new furniture, new curtain, paint and all that jazz. We don't have money to buy all these stuff, so we suggested he find some second handed furniture. Oh My gosh! What was my shock on Monday when I went to the rectory, entered his office and saw THE UGLIEST EVER PIECES OF FURNITURE. I mean terribly awful vintage 3 pieces chairs and a couch. They are velvet pinkish coloured, with build-in spotlights, glasses and some old build-in tape and the speakers. The glasses would be paradise for a coke head who'd wanna sniff and relax on the couch. It's awful. It was given by an older and very nice parishioner but for god's sake it's just terrible.
The Friendly Boss and I were hysterically laughing this morning while meeting in that room, we even took pictures of the furnitures with TFB acting in them. I have 2nd handed furniture but wouldn't want these pieces in my home. They are for a freak's museum. We can't have people sit on those. Our old ones were not THAT bad. They actually were great. See, The Parish Priest wanted newer stuff and now he's stuck with those. He can't throw 'em out. That would hurt the nice parishioner's feelings ya know.
I would post the pictures (not showing TFB to respect his private life) but with my luck someone from the parish would know it's me if they saw those awful to god pictures. Ha Ha HA!!!!
I'm getting back on the Parish's computer to work in our database, transferring old files.
