Conversations at Work

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!”

Bow Ties are Cool

Sometimes, my sister and I have awesome conversations that should be shared with the world. And sometimes, I’m really funny and want people to know about it.

No, she is not normally put into my phone as "Seester", but since she is my seester, I figured it would be fine.

Seriously, you should take the time to Google women in bow ties. It is not a good look for anyone involved, I’m sorry to say.

Sometimes Facebook makes me smile

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.

 

A case of unfortunate pole placement…

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.

 

Quotes from a British Guy

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*
*sputters*
*silence*
*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.

Real Cowboys Wear Bow Ties

I came across the top picture in my Facebook feed, and felt the need to modify it.

You’re welcome, Whovians.

 

So, this happened…

Ever have one of those days where you start out just wishing everything would go away so you could go to sleep, and then something happens that just hypes you up so that you are able to get through the rest of the day with a pleasant smile on your face?

No? Just me?

Well, today was like that for me, and here’s the person responsible.

I was scrolling through my Facebook stalker feed today when I got to work (as I am wont to do), and this popped up.

I seriously giggle every time I see this. It needs to be my background photo on my computer to look at when I'm having a bad day.

This is my friend Erica, and yes, she is being a badass at work.

I know it’s only the beginning of June, but I think this is the funniest thing I’ve seen all month. I seriously giggle every time I see this. It needs to be my background photo on my computer to look at when I’m having a bad day.

Apparently, Erica is going to a wedding today, and can only curl her hair with sponge rollers. Because her office (my former office) is really laid back, she decided to wear her curlers to work, looking like a housewife from one of the square states.

And it is awesome.

If you think that this picture is amazing (which it is, so don’t be afraid to admit it), you should check out the blog she started when she ran off to Vegas to get married. Seriously, she can spit out pop culture references like nobody’s business, and working with her was what kept me sane the last few months of that job.
