Sometimes, people at work say things that crack me up, not because what they say is particularly funny, but because of who is saying it (and sometimes it’s a mix of both).
Today I had one of those moments.
I was going to refill my water, and I ran into a coworker who is a very fantastic lady. She reminds me of a younger version of my man-friend’s grandma, because she’s just spunky and warm and so very caring. (She’s actually one of my favorite people to talk to at work, and the following is a great example of why).
I made a casual comment about her putting on her coat – something along the lines of, “Heading out?” – and she stares at me for almost too long, so I thought I had maybe said something wrong.
Then she smiles at me and says, “I almost pulled a Cartman, but then I thought that that wouldn’t be right in a professional environment.”
I laughed a lot, because it was just the last thing that I would have expected her to say. It really just made my day.
So, in honor of my lovely coworker, I will just have to say,
“Screw you guys, I’m going home!”
Sometimes Facebook gets its timing just right to brighten up an otherwise gloomy day in the office. I love it when non-sentient beings get snarky.
Timing points – +1000.
Side note: If you are getting your major news stories from a wordpress website, you should probably understand that the facts are probably not as they seem, since wordpress sites are free and anyone can start up a “news” site to spout their own opinions.
I would say I’m only judging a little, but who am I kidding? I’m judging a lot.
While driving to the booming metropolis nearby (read: slightly larger town half an hour away), I happened to stop at a red light in one of the smaller towns along the way. Looking to my left, I saw this lovely sign, and was quick enough to snap a picture.
Would you like one of our Bitch Pizzas? It’s the house special.
Gotta love some good old small town humor.
In my department, we have a lovely man who hails from the land of Beefeaters, Doctor Who and delicious accents. I thoroughly enjoy listening to him talk, especially when he does something particularly British.
The other day, we had several meetings of our team throughout the day, and he dropped these gems into my lap to giggle about later on.
“..If we don’t talk to them about it, things will tend to go a bit pear-shaped…”
Physical comedy at its greatest, ladies and gentlemen:
*starts to ask a question*
*gets words confused*
*Takes a drink of tea and looks around*
And my personal favorite:
Boss: “Has anyone heard of veritas?”
Brit: “Yes, it’s Latin for truth.”
Me:*giggling that the Brit knows Latin*
Brit: *Points to me* “She’s scoffing!”
Honestly, it made the meetings much more entertaining, and I look forward to documenting more “bloody hell’s” and references to “boiled sweets” in the future on this blog.
I came across the top picture in my Facebook feed, and felt the need to modify it.
You’re welcome, Whovians.
