As most of you know, I work for a coal company. Well, there is this older gentleman that is like super rich because he owns his own coal company and he comes in every now again to meet with our sales department.
Pretty much every time he comes in he stops and chats with me. He is a really nice guy and we kinda have to kiss his ass because we profit from him.
Anyways, the other day he comes up to me and asks how I am doing and what not. We exchange pleasantries back and forth and then pretty randomly he says, "Do you watch any reality television?"
Me: I watch American Idol, but I really don't get into anything else.
Him: Oh. Have you ever seen The Bachelor?
Me: I used to watch it when it first aired, but it got old. It's so repetitive and I'm definitely not a fan of the guy on there this season.
Him: Why don't you like him?
Me: Just things I've seen and read. Seems like a jerk to me.
Him: Well you should check it out tonight if you get a chance.
Him: You may find it interesting.
Puzzled, I agreed to check it out, mostly because I was curious as hell.
So that evening, I flipped through the channels until I found The Bachelor. And then, my mouth dropped.
The dude's daughter was a freaking contestant! And she was like the main part of the show! Do you all watch it? Emily is to whom I'm referring. He gave her a rose and she's moving onto the next round. Her story is actually pretty incredible, and everyone that works here knows who she is. I've never met her, but holy crap, I see her dad all the time.
I don't think he'll stop by and see me anymore.
