Day 115



When the phone company moved into the new building on Black Street the Purchasing and Engineering departments shared the second floor. I was Mr. Lad’s (Ladson Barnes Sr.) secretary. When he prepared to leave on Friday afternoons he would come out of his office and announce to all who could hear that he was leaving. Most of the time someone would say “Mr. Lad, behave this weekend.” And he would scratch his head as if in thought and reply “Well if I don’t, I’ll brag about it on Monday morning.”
