What fun! Loved the ending. Great voice and pacing.
Love it, love it, love it. I wanted to shake the manager-what a drongo.

You had me shaking my head and laughing at all the countries that were actually involved in making the items used in making the signs.

Loved the ending, what a multi-talented Faithwriter-er you are :-).
On topic and a fun read. Loved the global mix of component parts.

An enjoyable read!
Enjoyed the conversational tone to your story. One "bump" for me that made me have to go back and re-read a couple of times was where you said the buyer returned a sign & then your boss talked about his cousin not being able to assemble it. Wasn't clear what was part of the ruse and what wasn't. But that could just be me and the headache I have. At any rate, of course, sand to hold down the sandwich boards, what a great idea! Congratulations on your recognition in the workplace!!! :-)

So it's the sandwich holds the board down...! Very entertaining story.
You are quite creative. I can see why
You advanced from sign writer to author. Great take on a difficult topic( at least it was for me but you handled it with ease)

Great little fun read and bang on topic. One of my favorites. Well Done

What a fun story. I laughed several times. What a hoot. I would never have thought to use a "sandwich sign" for this week's challenge but obviously you've been there, done that. Great use of this week's topic.
