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!”
