Office Shorts

It's been a while since I posted about the office. Here are some things I have been collecting:


Partner: The milk of human kindness flows through my veins.

Reply by passerby: Yeah, sour milk.

After receiving a warning at work not to download the Blackberry operating system update because there were bugs, the following conversation took place:

Girl: Did you get the email about Blackberrys?
Me: Yep. I didn't download it.
Girl: Should I tell other girl?
Me: No. She has an iPhone.
Girl: What's the difference?
Me: It isn't a Blackberry...

So you are calling someone in my office and you get my voicemail instead. I say I am out of my office. I do not say I work for the person you are trying to call yet you feel it is appropriate to just continue on with your message anyway..."Yeah, this message is for so and so, this is stupid and here is my phone number. Oh and tell him it is about this...no wait, it is about this. Yeah, tell him it is about that."

Yeah, I'll get right on that.

Girl 1: Can you smell that stinky cigarette smoke on her? (Referencing girl that just walked in)
Girl 2: No but I have allergies.
Girl 1: I think it is because you smoke.
Girl 2: What I can't smell stinky things because I smoke?
Girl 1: Exactly.

Secretary to person on phone: "Oh what a weave and the web is tangled..."

*

Partner: Did your clock go haywire?

Secretary: I am not late, am I?

Boss: No, you are early

*

What a boss likes to hear:

Boss: What is on your schedule today?
Employee: You, you and you.

:P: the blackberry virus thing is too funny. What virus anyway? i use blackberry and pretty freaked out.

Brandy said...

Bahaha! Unfortunately I'm the only one in my office so if hear something dumb, I'm usually the one saying it. :o)

Andhari - it was not a virus but more like a bug in the new software meaning that it might make the blackberry act up. I am pretty sure they have it worked out although our IT person's blackberry suffered as a casualty in the testing.

Brandy - okay, now that would be bad but quite hilarious if you posted stuff said in your office about you in the third person. Hmmm....

Jennifer said...

Blaez said...
