“Laughter with those that understand us is music for the soul.
A hug at the right moment and a kind shoulder to lean on,
Is the sprinkle of magic that keeps us walking towards hope.” ―
“The more stressful the job, the more intentional I’ve always been about helping my team members find joy in our work. Laughter is the outward manifestation of joy, so I believe if I’m doing it right, and helping people connect to the meaning and joy in their work, there will be laughter in the workplace. Laughter is also a good indication that people aren’t taking themselves too seriously.” ―
“In life, you can choose to cry about the crap that happens to you or you can choose to laugh about it. I choose laughter.” ―

A businessman had a tiring day on the road. He checked into a hotel and, because he was concerned that the dining room might close soon, left his luggage at the front desk and went immediately to eat.
After a leisurely dinner, he reclaimed his luggage and realized that he had forgotten his room number. He went back to the desk and told the clerk on duty, “My name is Henry Davis, can you please tell me what room I am in?”
“Certainly,” said the clerk. “You’re in the lobby.”😱
Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from??? “I told you not to pick up the phone.” “Then stop calling me.”
:Pretty Woman! In the events leading up to this scene, rich businessman Edward Lewis (Richard Gere) needs an escort in Hollywood, California for some social functions and he hires prostitute Vivian Ward (Julia Roberts). He takes a liking to her and negotiates for her full time day and night. The interaction of Vivian’s street-savy mannerisms with Edward’s rarified level of society leads to some pretty funny situations. In one scene, Edward takes her to an opera and an old woman asks her how she liked it. She says, “It was so good, I almost peed my pants!” The old woman is surprised at this response and Edward quickly adds, “She said she liked it better than Pirates of Penzance.” In this scene, Edward lets her stay in their suite at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel during the day while he’s gone but instructs her not to answer the phone. To test her he calls their room and she answers. He repeats the instruction and calls again as a test. She answers again and he says line one. She replies with line two. In the 1991 Academy Awards, Julia Roberts was nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role but lost the Oscar to Kathy Bates in “Misery.” In the scene where Edward is shown
playing the piano in the empty hotel lounge, Richard Gere is playing the piano himself.
