Welcome to Tales by Tom -

This collection is a group of 24 stories under the title of Nobody Likes a Proofreader and Other Lessons I Have Learned During  and After a Life in Retail.

We’re into the 7th and 8th stories now, and the lessons learned in Nobody Likes a Proofreader and other lessons I have learned during and after a life in retail. Stories 7 and 8 are connected.

Story Seven is entitled “NASSAU--- a honeymoon  until….”  You’ll enjoy the brief story and hear that my wife and I had a good time --- until we came home.

Story Eight is called “My wife asked me what I would do if I were single.”  She really did --- and her question, coupled with the opportunity to become a general merchandise manager at 41 years of age AND what happened on our return from Nassau pushed me over the edge to make a decision. As it turns out, I made the decision three times.

Contact me at or at the listener call in line at 206 339 5456.  Please listen and each of you tell three friends. And let me hear your comments… I listen.

Sure wish I knew what to do now that...
