Time to Call in the Big Guns

Inquiring minds wanted to know the identity of the mysterious couple surrounded by roaches and termites in the yellow page ad.

Several even offered to call the company to find out. But, there was only one person not really truly up for this mission: dun dun dun dunnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.....

The Blog Husband!


Whenever I'm too chicken to make a phone call, I coerce talk MB into fulfilling his "blog husband" duties. It took some work, but he surprised me on Tuesday when he called me with the answer. I'm afraid it wasn't quite as exciting as we were all envisioning: The lovely bug-infested couple is the owner's children *yawns*

You're good!!! It is usually my hubs trying to convince me to make calls for him!!! Usually it is something like this:

hubs: "Kristen, can you call Michel and have her ask Gary if he wants to go golfing."

me: "ummm, here's a thought...why don't YOU call Gary and ask him yourself."

hubs: "because you and Michel like to talk on the phone more."

me: "yeah but not about you and Gary golfing!"

hubs: "sooo...what's your point?"

me: *crickets chirping*

hubs: (after a looong silence) "so did you call???"

You get the point!!! This happens waaay too often!

I'm still giggling at this - what on *earth* have this couple got to do with roaches and termites - children or no children!? It's not exactly flattering, is it?! :D

Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife said...

LOL!!! I wonder if the owners just have a crazy sense of humor and this is meant to be some kind of inside joke. Or not.

Yankee Girl said...

That must have been an awesome phone call. I wonder if they have ever gotten that call before.

MB rocks. What a great blog husband.

Robin said...

Thank God that is settled...I thought maybe they were the couple that was eaten by roaches or something...So that's your hubs...?..he is adorable and very resourceful...Can I borrow him sometime...I have a few questions I need to ask the president..?..Do we know Why they put the kids on the flier..???..mmmm..?

Michele said...

That's awesome!!!
What a great hubs. Kudo's to him.

Lovin' the pic, too.

Triplets Plus Two Momma said...

thank gawd---I can now sleep. Seriously, it was driving me INSANE. By why the "prom pose"? Weird.

Michelle Pixie said...

I told you they wanted to show off their kids prom picture!! :D

Way to take one for the team MB!

Kristin said...

Maybe you two should open up a PI firm a la Remington Steel?

Lisa Paul said...

I'm disappointed in you. YOu had the opportunity go all 60 MInutes and do some hard-hitting investigative journalism. And you turned it over to Blog Husband.

And where is the rest of the story? Why did he put his kids in the middle of roaches and termites?

Lucy said...

Wow, my husband does a lot for me but I have to admit I'm thinking that would have been really hard to get him to do, what a great guy!

But, he didn't get the whole story, that is why you needed to do it or at least a woman, we would have asked the next logical question, WHY?????

Petite Little Bee said...

This is really cute! Lia

gaelikaa said...

At least you could get the information.

Theta Mom said...

What a great hubby! LOL
And thanks so much for stopping by Theta Mom!

Christina said...

Not sure I'd want mom & dad posting my picture up on a bug ad. Ewww.

Amanda said...

Yeah hubby! What a great guy. I hadnt seen that post of yours (where was I?) but how weird is that?? Did they explain why they did that to their kids?

Weird.

Blessings!
Amanda

Janna Bee said...

I'm incredibly impressed that he did this. I can't even get my husband to call and order pizza!

Mommy, I'm Home said...

That was awfully nice of him to call...

Megan said...

OMG, that ad is too funny. What the...?

Love that your husband called!!! Did he find out why in God's name the owners put a picture of their kids in the middle of a roach ad? He should have given them the third degree while he had them on the phone!

Lisa said...

Ok there are some places your kids pic do not need to be...that is one of them!

tattytiara said...

A strange but I'm sure very sincere tribute (is what I'm going to choose to believe).

Vodka Logic said...

May not be the answer you wanted but you have the answer at least... good job Mb

Randi Troxell said...

Laura said...

Booooring! :)
I always make my husband do the dirty work calling, I love it!

Tracie said...

My husband won't even answer the phone when his own mother calls. There's no way he'd do that.

Alicia said...

Kelly said...

Way to commit Carma['s husband].

A girl's gotta do...
what her husband won't. So I talked to the Director of Health and Human Services for the state of Illinois (or some such title).

Yesterday's fact-finding: "How much welfare does a single mom get in [my county]?"
I got 15 minutes of info from the cheeriest person I spoke to all day.
Being that everyone else spends time with me IN PERSON; there's not a lot of cheer.

Some say it's like being surrounded by roaches.

Big Mama Cass said...

wait.. what?

Joy said...

Which begs the question, "Why did they allow this?"

buffalodick said...

My wife has told numerous companies "You really don't want to speak to my husband" I was in sales for 35 years, and there is no trick or tactic in buying or selling I'm not aware of...

Crystal Escobar said...

Haha, I'm the same way! So funny.
Love that picture too :)

shraddha said...
