I Got Something To Say

It's like walking into Flatpoint High here today at work. The halls and walls are covered in streamers and printed signs welcoming a new work group that joins us today. Welcome!!

The social committee and cheer squad has been at it for a good 40 minutes, laughing and taping up signs while I realize that the smell is of hundreds of thousands of dollars in salary flying out the window as they merry make.

Now I remember why I never joined the student council.

Don't you hate crap like that? My company (often referred to as "Mayberry") is planning a cheering contest -- the winning department wins Fuddrucker's gift certificates. I gotta pursue that hermit lifestyle ...

Coaster Punchman said...

Dale, you are quite the SWC trivia expert. Outstanding.

Dale said...

I enjoy the part time hermit lifestyle Beth. Keeps those pesky humans away from me.

CP - It's like Retardation A Celebration! for me when it comes to Amy and the show. I've got the dvd set and can't wait for the movie to hit dvd as well. You probably see her ambling around town all the time while I must love her from afar.

We got spirit yes we do!!!!
We got spirit how bout you?!?!

Ok, Dale...now you answer me back with the same cheer. We'll keep doing that until one of us throws up.

I once remarked about a bulletin board at my last place of employment as being immature and condescending toward the adults that we are. I do not remember the content, but I do remember it was on a grade school level. I was told that these employees (Human Resources) were professional and had degrees and knew best what to put up and to mind my own business.

It's less of a hermit thing, I believe, than it is a self-imposed restraint from kicking those puppies in the ass out of the door.

Berry said...

Oooh! I love streamers! Are there balloons, too?? There HAS to be balloons! Lots and lots of balloons! And hats? Will you wear little pointy hats? With a string under your chins? Oh, say there'll be hats, Dale! Say there'll be hats!

I thought all high schools in Canada were like Degrassi not Flatpoint.

I'm not a fan of rallies either, so I feel your pain.

Monkey McWearingChaps said...

What do the motivational banners say??

Gretta James said...

Yep hate the rally.

Gretta

Dale said...

I threw up immediately Skincarver. So we're cool right?

The life of a hermit is another form of self preservation I think Old Lady. There's at least a measure of satisfaction in kicking them here isn't there?

Very funny Berry. I jokingly asked about balloons and was told that there might be too many latex allergies. Their solution was to get a few and put them in the elevator lobby for I suppose maximum exposure potential. Ridiculous.

We're a little Degrassi and a little bit rock n roll Chancelucky. Pep this all you rally asses!

Monkey! Stupidly they say things like WELCOME!!! and HOME AT LAST!!! which makes no sense really.

Thank you Gretta. Eye can see you're a woman of fine taste.

I'm only familiar with Neptune High, and I'll say this Veronica Mars would not have tolerated the fluff either.

Angela said...

That sounds awfully familiar...
Were you the guy wearing streamers out of your pants, flippin' the bird to everyone all afternoon? I saw you! I knew we worked in the same building!

chelene said...

Was there food, Dale? Because if there were no donuts to fight over why bother?

Mob said...

I think you should try to sneak some sort of Fight Club inspired posters into the mix, next to 'home at last!' you could put up things about downsizing and how they're fucking up the cubicle size ratio by getting shoe-horned into your building.

Dale said...

JustaCC - I keep hearing about Veronica but I'm just getting over Betty finally.

If only you worked in my building, you could point and laugh with me Angela. I always wear the streamer pants though.

The food comes on Thursday Chelene. Bagels apparently. As long as they're wearing gloves, I may fight a fat girl for one.

Mob - And porn, we've got to work some porn in there too. I can't tell you the joy I felt when I read your inspired idea Mob. Of course, you've got Chuck on the brain right now.

X. Dell said...

Are you saying this new team is superfluous?

Coaster Punchman said...

Well Dale, I've actually only seen her once, and that was because I paid money to see her play "Wigfield." (Which was only so-so, sorry to say.) But I did buy the book, got her to sign it, and chatted her up about Dusty, her pet rabbit. She was very matter of fact with me, though not completely devoid of warmth. I know which building and which apartment she lives in (cyberstalker) so maybe she'll let me up sometime if I can figure out a clever enough excuse. I'll let you know how it goes.

Dale said...

I wouldn't say that at all X. Dell. I'd say Patti Simcox and the gang just needed a project.

Keep me posted, her Dusty and imaginary boyfriend stories are pretty funny. I was thinking I could probably hang out at the Gourmet Garage and bump into her sometime too. Doesn't she sell her cheeseballs there? You're my hero.
