For several years a wonderful coordinator, Marsha Duncan, did a comedy bit for us called you know you’re an FRYSC Coordinator if……

I would like to know your short bit….please post here.

Mine: You know you’re a FRYSC Coordinator if someone answers the door in some state of nudity (towel, underwear, etc) and you are just so happy to have finally gotten a hold of someone that you don’t break eye contact and continue with what you needed to say and then leave.

If it doesn’t bother you….I won’t let it stop me….whatever it takes.

Not a recent happening…. but has happened.

Post your funny story here…we could all use some laughter these days.

  14. You know you’re a FRYSC Coordinator when you go on a home visit, extension cords stretching across the hill to nearby trailer. You’re met at the porch by an Amazon woman with gang tattoos standing ready to fight…until she realizes who I am and why I was there. Her attitude changed immediately and she was quite friendly. I have to say I was a little fearful at first!

  20. You know you’re a FRYSC Coordinator when you spend all morning loading your Tahoe with food you’ve been collecting, go inside for one last box and when you come out your Tahoe is gone!!

    Heard a thumping sound-
    Turned around to see a goat walking on the hood of my Jeep-

    Now, on a funny note. When you and your assistant go on a home visit and as you’re pulling in the drive the KSP is pulling out. The dad meets us outside with a shotgun in hand. He tells me that he likes me (probably because I’m not the police) but he REALLY likes my assistant😍because she “looks like Crystal Gayle” and then proceeds to try to impress her by showing her his Civil War re-enactment membership card. 😂🙄

  32. You know you are a FRYSC Coordinator when you go to check on a truant student, no one will answer the door, see something moving in the backseat of the car in the driveway, you automatically assume it’s the student, you go and look in the tinted window to see a half dressed adult hiding in the back of the suv. It was very cold outside.

You know you’re a FRYSC Coordinator that is a FRYSCKy Board Member if some of your strongest friendships are formed with people from all across the state and you do what seems to be a second job’s worth of work because, yes, you are committed (or need to be) but also so that you get to see these crazy people 5 times (sometimes more) a year.

For my friend Charis…you know you’re a FRYSC Coordinator if you deliver to someone an expensive tempurpedic bed donate for them and they call you to please come pick it up and bring a different one because you have ruined their marriage because they just can’t make love on it…the message included the info that Puddin and Franky (Not sure who or what these are) are the only ones that enjoy the bed. All was good though…they kept it clean with a rubber sheet.

  36. You know you’re a FRYSC Coordinator when a young man (6th grader) comes up and says, “Ms Rita. Do you have shoes for me? I’ve duct taped mine together but mornings like this when it rains my feet get wet.” (Not socks but feet as he didn’t have socks on.) so I go to Walmart and get him some and bring them back to school. I get him socks as well. Now I know this story is all familiar to so many of you…here’s the thing. After putting his new socks and shoes on, he hugged me and said, “I am so glad you don’t have a real job Ms Rita. Who would take care of us if you did?” And he smiled. And walked away. Then I cried. ❤️
