Stuck In The Middle With You

Someone in the middle of a meeting at work today said:

I just want to explain my thought process on this. I think it in my head and then I say it out loud. That's the way I do it.

This was someone at a fairly high level of achievement.

It scares me when I think I might be the smartest person in the room.

I just want to explain my process on this. I stick my finger in my nose, which is in my head and then I inspect my finger out loud. That's the way I do it.

You should send that to Scott Adams (Dilbert). He would love it.

It scares me when the blog writing monkeys are the smartest in the room AND they have the best hygiene.

When I notice I usually bare my teeth screeching and smash something with a rock.

That's my process.

Good Lord, Dale. That's fucking hilarious, "Yeah, and then as the words tumble from my word-hole, you people look at me like I'm a special needs child, and it makes me uncomfortable."

"And then I pee a little"

Dale said...

Tanya, you've got your own way to pick. I laughed out loud about how you inspect it out loud.

Chelene, not a bad idea. Man oh man!

Justacoolcat - I didn't know cats and monkeys was cool with each other but I like the idea of the gnashing and the smashing.

Mob - It's the only way I can pee now, I have to feel all uncomfortable!

does you job description include washing this guy's bum bum after he goess boom boom in his pull-ups?

Dale said...

bum bum, boom boom, bam bam.

I thought he looked a bit puffy in those pants but thankfully that's someone else's mess to worry about.

There was a second that I worried it might be not so good to post about this but then I realized, no fucking way can he read.

I had no idea you worked at the White House...

Dale said...

Shhh. If he finds out, the jig is up.

OMG, I just fell out of my seat laughing. I remember living the Office Space life and my boss said the exact same thing at one of those uterus crumbling meetings I used to attend.

So then I guess the secret to advancement is to study that line, live it, know it, say it and move on up a little higher.

I'm glad you were able to laugh right away, I had to wait another hour and a half before full blown ridicule could begin.
