As promised from an earlier post on a guest room makeover, here is the Candid Camera footage of my mother-in-law from 1974 at an office in Buckhead, Atlanta. My last several posts have been rather heavy, so here's something to leave you with a good chuckle and a smile.
When I was a child, I remember watching this episode, where a beautiful temp finds herself thinking she is losing her mind while trying to answer a telephone on her first day filling in as a secretary/receptionist. We all can relate to that "first day" on the job anxiety, where you want to make a good first impression. Now combine that feeling with having a prank played and there, you have a hilarious moment caught on camera.
Years after my husband and I were married, I found out about her being on the show. My husband got in touch with the production company and bought a copy of the episode where she was featured. I almost fell over when we played it for the first time. It was the one scene that I actually remembered from the show! How weird is it to see your mother-in-law on television some twenty years before meeting?
Like I've said before, having a mother-in-law with a good sense of humor is GOLDEN!
Thanks for reading and watching!
P.S. Next time you think you're losing your mind, think again. You might be on Candid Camera phone.:)
