New Sheriff In Town

2 Comments 31 July 2013

This is from an actual conversation that could only take place at a speakers bureau.

Me- “So, do you have everything you need to move forward with this speaker for your event? Is there anything else I can provide for you?”

Event planner- “Well, we have a new sheriff in town, and we need to check with him first.”

Me- “Yeah, I know new executives like to look things over for their first event.”

Event planner- “What?”

Me- “You know, when new executives first come in, they want to make sure they have a hand in approving speakers.”

Event planner- “No, we actually have a new sheriff in town.  Apparently he’s implemented some innovative processes down there at the Sheriff’s Department, and we might want to have him speak instead.”

Me- “Oh.  OK.”

  1. Funny story. I wonder what other catch phrases could be literal?
    “No, I AM between a rock and a hard place.” Aron Ralston. (too soon?)
    “I can’t come to the phone, I’m actually tied up.” Houdini
    “I shot myself in the foot.” (my wife’s Uncle Johnny… who shot himself in the foot a number of years ago).
