A co-worker's mother passed away. She was 99. He took a week off for grievance. The following happened in the middle of the week:

Coworker1: "Hey have you seen Don?"
Coworker2: "He's out this week. His mom died."
Coworker1: "Oh wow. That's harsh..."
Coworker2: "Yeah. She was 99 though, so..."
Coworker1: "Oooooh.... Niiinety-Niiine, eh?... Isn't there a bar around here called 99?"
Coworker2: "Yeah. I went the other night."
Coworker1: "Great potato skins there..."
Coworker2: "Yeah... I met this girl there. She was smokin'! Nothing happened, though. So anyway, Don's not in today."


I facepalmed so epically I think I actually morphed into Capt. Piccard for a moment. Wai2fail, guys.

"Male koalas are frequently known to force themselves onto the females. It happens so much in the koala world that the females will actually empty their bowels during intercourse."

*pause*

"I often wonder why I know so much about koala rape."



I do, too, co-worker. I do, too.

Coworker One: "Before us, black people were still in the plains, throwing spears around. We picked 'em up from that hole and brought them to the greatest country of all time: AMERICA. I don't see why they're so angry. We did them a favor."

Coworker Two(with a serious expression): "Yeah, I don't know. I guess some people just don't know how lucky they are."

The next hour continued in the same fashion. I've never been more disappoint. I'm considering a different job.

All,

I have some muffins on my table. There are some banana nut and little blueberry muffins and a bunch of bran muffins. So if you want to be regular, come on down.

Respectfully,

During a discussion of the overflowing toilet in the Woman's restroom:

Coworker 1 (very prim and proper): I went in the stall the other day, and someone had forgotten to flush. I was trying to be nice so I flushed for them. TWICE! That thing just wouldn't go down! It was like a horse had gone in there.

several hours later....

A very pregnant Coworker 2: you know that turd Coworker 1 was talking about? That was me. Evidently pregnancy makes me constipated and I hadn't gone in 4 days! I TRIED to flush it, but it just kept popping back up!

Ah... the things ladies discuss at work....

Boss: When will this be done?
Me: Boss, remember telling me you'd get me this information, and me saying I'd need 2 days once I had that?
Boss: Yes.
Me: Remember getting it to me?
Boss: No.


(important to note, I'm on the final count down, today is the 6th and my last day is the 15th)

Close. The US defense industry.
I can't say I'm surprised to find racism in a place that builds war weapons.
A little scared. But it's an expected kind of scared.

It's interesting what we hear in offices of such nature...I work the other side of the defense industry...

In a meeting awhile back...

In a meeting:

Big Guy: Boss man never used to cuss. He's spent too much time around me, and now look at him.

Tall Guy: Aww, f*ck, I'll have to watch that.

Sassy Girl: I don't know what the f*ck you're talking about.

Boss man looks at me.

Me: I don't cuss often, it's just one of those things.

Boss man: Mavyn hasn't been exposed to you guys enough.

Me: I don't need anyone exposing themselves to me.

Female 1: We finally watched Shrek 3. My favorite part was the part with the princesses.

Female 2: What princesses?

Female 1: You know, the ones from the fairy tales: Snow White, Cinderella, and...oh, what's that other one's name? The one that sleeps all the time.

Female 2: You mean Sleeping Beauty?

Female 1: That's not it. She sleeps in a tower, and the prince has to kiss her to wake her up.

Female 2: That's Sleeping Beauty.

Female 1 (getting annoyed): It's not Sleeping Beauty! It's a different character. Rapunzel, maybe?

Female 2: No, that's the one where she has really long hair that the guy climbs.

Female 1: I'm pretty sure that's Rumplestiltskin, 'cause she spins her hair into gold.

Female 2: *SIGH*

Neighbor in another cube is on hold. Rather than put on a headset, they've put their phone to speaker phone and are inflicting hold music on all of us.

Edit: Even better, they were on hold for a conference call...so now we're all listening to some random meeting.

stupidvisor: a chart of this organization? I still don't know what you mean

peon: You know, an org chart. Who reports to whom done on a chart like this (shows picture of an org chart)

stupidvisor: Oh, well we don't have one. Why didn't you say that is what you were looking for

Overheard at "Holiday Party/White Elephant Gift Exchange Game:"

1) Come on, let's go Number 2!

2) Are you sexually harassing me?

3) These meatballs are delicious! (followed by a quietly spoken "that's what she said...")

Overheard in municipal office during holiday lunch they started talking about areas of the city. the tablecloth had a lot of glittery stuff on it

bossman: hey your neighborhood is pretty nice. How come it didn't go to crap.

managerguy: well the houses are beautiful and people really take pride in restoring them. The historic designation gives it alot of cache.

otherdude: isn't that neighborhood predominately joyous? that is always good for property values - they invest in their house & don't tax the schools.

bossman: it's a joyous neighborhood? (looking at managerguy)are you joyous? (boss has met manager's wife & daughter)

managerguy: well, you might want to ask my wife! and you know, I find that an odd question from a guy with glitter on his face.
