Things you'd like to say at work, but can't
[Return to Topics]

I've been off work for a couple months; Monday it's back to the old grind. I think it's quite timely that a friend sent me the following:


Things You'd Love to Say at Work, but Can't

1. I can see your point, but I still think you're full of crap.

2. I don't know what your problem is, but I'll bet it's hard to pronounce.

3. How about never? Is never good for you?

4. I see you've set aside this special time to humiliate yourself in public.

5. I'm really easy to get along with once you people learn to see it my way.

6. I'll try being nicer if you'll try being smarter.

7. I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

8. I don't work here. I'm a consultant.

9. It sounds like English, but I can't understand a word you're saying.

10. Ahhh... I see the screw-up fairy has visited us again...

11. I like you. You remind me of when I was young and stupid.

12. You are validating my inherent mistrust of strangers.

13. I have plenty of talent and vision. I just don't give a damn.

14. I'm already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

15. I will always cherish the initial misconceptions I had about you.

16. Thank you. We're all refreshed and challenged by your unique point of view.

17. The fact that no one understands you doesn't mean you're an artist.

18. Any connection between your reality and mine is purely coincidental.

19. What am I? Flypaper for freaks!?

20. I'm not being rude. You're just insignificant.

21. It's a thankless job, but I've got a lot of Karma to burn off.

22. Yes, I am an agent of Satan, but my duties are largely ceremonial.

23. And your crybaby whiny-butt opinion would be...?

24. Do I look like a people person?

25. This isn't an office. It's Hell with fluorescent lighting.

26. I started out with nothing & still have most of it left.

27. Sarcasm is just one more service we offer.

28. If I throw a stick, will you leave?

29. Errors have been made. Others will be blamed.

30. Whatever kind of look you were going for, you missed.

31. I'm trying to imagine you with a personality.

32. A cubicle is just a padded cell without a door.

33. Can I trade this job for what's behind door #1?

34. Too many freaks, not enough circuses.

35. Nice perfume. Must you marinate in it?

36. Chaos, panic and disorder - my work here is done.

37. How do I set a laser printer to stun?

38. I thought I wanted a career, turns out I just wanted paychecks

Turns out that if you've been in the same job for 24 years, you actually can get away with saying most of those things, even to your boss and sometimes even to his boss.

Of course, it affects yer chances for advancement at times, but other times it's worth it.

LOL, good ones Donna. Glad to hear your knee is doing better too. I know you'll be "chomping at the bit" to get back out for a ride on Blue : )

Except for two weeks after surgery, I've been able to ride all along, thank goodness. The knee that was operated on is much better, although I'm not sure how it will stand up to eight hours a day walking. The other knee hurts a lot, even here at home. I'm going to see what I'm capable of doing before I flat-out quit. Wish my luck. I will say I am anxious to see people again!

My personal favorites.

1. I can see your point, but I still think you're full of crap.

10. Ahhh... I see the screw-up fairy has visited us again...

17. The fact that no one understands you doesn't
mean you're an artist.

29. Errors have been made. Others will be blamed.

37. How do I set a laser printer to stun?

Thanks for the laughs!




Did you notice....    Posted 12-03-2004 at 08:58:19       [Reply]  [No Email]
Some of them would work for a message board, too?

Donna

Yep.

The most alarming thing is though, I see many uses for some of them here at home. I think I'll print a copy and carry it in my pocket so that I can grab it when I need it. (wink)
