When IT is in one room. You have the pleasure of hearing things like:
Computer User: “I cannot use my computer!!”
“The computer is just weird! I can’t use it! It’s like wearing a bad shoe.”
So…what exactly is a bad shoe?
And today’s winning conversation….
Caller: “I have a question about my coverage.”
Receptionist: “Okay, let me get you over to customer service.”
Caller: “No, I only want to speak to a generic person.”
And Generic for the win! Brand Name is back on the benches. Maybe next round Brand Name will get its chance.
Makes you wonder….are you Brand Name, or Generic?
When you’re searching for a solution and find the best code comments…
Although the funniest comments I’ve ran across stated:
This code does something. Once I figure out what is it I’ll use it.
To this day, no one knows what the code does….and no one touches it!
If you’re talking about my comments… You get statements like this:
————Failed attempts to achieve random goals – moving on!————
My commitment to commenting could have me committed…. but moving on!
Sometimes, Wednesdays start off a little weird….
ME: Hey, the ExportCD job has been running for 11 hours. It should only take an hour and a half….
Genius-Developer-Guy: Yep, sounds like a problem. *Quickly walks out the door…*
Well…at least we’ve confirmed there’s a problem.
Statement of the day….
“People keep calling wanting to talk to a live representative. I really have the urge to pass them off to a dead one!”
I have often wondered if I’ve reached a living, or dead, representative when calling customer service. I now have the answer!
Is it possible I’m living in an episode of iZombie and I didn’t know it….??
Over heard in passing….
“Go hug a venomous spider, you Vitamin D-deficient circus clown!”
I have yet to decide if this is the best insult I have ever heard or a highly inventive way to tell someone to drop dead…. decisions, decisions 🙂
The Randomness of work email….

Subject: trunk open in bad wind
There is a Gray Honda in the parking lot whose trunk is a jar
Here I always thought a trunk was a trunk, and a jar was a jar. Now a trunk can be a jar? What’s next a tire can be a spare? 😉
Life is short, laugh at the little things!
Mysterious Cubicle Dweller: “Can I borrow your brains?”
Holder of the Brains: “Sure, but I’d better wash them first. They’re a little on the sticky side. Oh, do they need shoes?”
Shoes…because how else are brains supposed to get around?
Today’s Random Statement….
Poor Innocent Soul: “I’m going to propose….”
In Unison Response: “…but, we’re all married!?”
One must always be prepared for the sharp minds in IT.
Today’s overheard statement…
Cubicle-Dweller One: “I just ate a finger, or toe, not sure which one….it tasted funny though…”
Cubicle-Dweller Two: “You know you shouldn’t be eating appendages, right? Hhmmmm maybe that’s why my sock keeps falling down….”
Cannibalism in the work place OR, the onset of Halloween candy in the hallowed halls of cubicle land? I have yet to decide….
