Actual Things That People Have Said To Me Today

I'm just sitting at my desk, minding my own business, and people have come over to tell me (ask me) the following:

1) "Johnny Law cut us some break."

2) "Her computer was making funny noises and she thought it was going to blow up. [dramatic pause] Her flowers were sitting on the escape key."

3) "Can I order some stilts?"

Boy, I wish someone would say that first one to me. I could use a laugh.

Well, I guess it's good that the computer didn't actually explode...

;)

I'm curious about the stilts. Any day that involves stilts has to be goofier than average.

RuthWells said...

Um. Stilts?

Sober Briquette said...

You don't keep stilts in stock?

And hey! (If I may butt in to an old twitter convo) Laurie Berkner is fun - though she's only on my radio, not my TV.

Ree said...

Well, I've actually done the second one, but not with flowers. With a book.

That would be a huge box for the stilts.

Kyddryn said...

Wow. That almost tops Golden Pickles. Almost.

i've had # 2 happen, but it is just my over-dedicated office cat.

any job featuring all 3 has got to be interesting. particularly re #3.

Kyla said...

Everyone needs a good pair of stilts, don't they?

Ohhhhhh, suspense in the office. The flowers did it! Makes me miss the show Dead Like Me.

Things people have said to me today:

(1) you f*cking c*nt
(2) I really wouldn't say that if I were you
(3) Don't think I can't find out where you live

Maybe I need to find a new career.

Mental P Mama said...

Are there any openings there? I want to work with them.

Kyddryn said...

I had to come back and tell you...the stilts have me stumped. Really, I thought about them into the wee hours. Out of context, it's such a curious question!

Stilts for reaching necessary supplies from high altitudes? Or stilts for peering into 2nd story windows?

See what I have to look forward to when I return to work?
