Why Don't The Windows Open In This Building Again?

Someone this morning said to me "You must be able to retire soon".  "No, I just look that old" was all I could reply.  It's a good thing I don't wake up until noon.

If you need me to, I will come kick some ass up there.

You.
Old.

(teehehehheheheheh)

Some Guy said...

What a dick.

SkylersDad said...

Should have poked him in the eyes 3 stooges style.

pistols at dawn said...

Start carrying around a corn cob pipe and tell long stories about whittlin', gramps.

Gifted Typist said...

That's as bad as the Tim Horton's employee who winked and nudged me one morning saying she thought she noticed a sparkle in my eye the lst few weeks.

I had to tell her, no, I wasn't pregnant.

I'm with gifted typist on that one. I had a student ask me if I was expecting and I had to tell her no, I'm just fat. It is what itis, folks. ;)

BeckEye said...

Proper response: "You must be able to suck my ass with that big mouth of yours."

Mistress La Spliffe said...

Maybe the knob was just reflecting on how rich you look.

668 aka neighbour of the beast said...

my answer is in your title.

Chancelucky said...

Maybe it was because you seemed so skilled at your job.

Suze said...

Relatives can be so cruel huh?

Dale said...

I definitely want you on my side Fran. And no jokes about age before beauty or anything!

She was a dick Chris!

I sort of got poked in the eye Skyler's Dad so I did my best woo woo woo woo woo.

Why would I carry my corn cob pipe around Pistols when it fits so nicely in that space where my tooth used to be?

They're not hired for their brains GT. Your comment is very slimming by the way.

You can almost (almost) forgive a student Genn6 but real people? Unforgivable.

I do like to be proper Beckeye so I'll hold that in reserve until next time.

Considering my great independent wealth Mistress, you are surely correct.

I think I would have pushed her through 668 rather than have jumped.

Clearly you don't know me Chancelucky, my only skill is work avoidance.

I know Suze! What I really said was "I'm telling Mom!"

668 aka neighbour of the beast said...

well, that's what i would have done.

michaelg said...

You just have a aura about you of prudent financial planning. Take it as a compliment?

mellowlee said...

*gasp* how rude of her. I would've been tempted to push her out a window too GRRRRRRRRRRRR

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Waaaaaiiiit a minute - they asked you "this morning" and you don't wake up till noon? I am so confused! Were you sleeping with this person?

Doc said...

Perhaps you could have suggested that she just go ahead and tuck her sagging breasts into her waistband like a respectable old woman, and why wasn't her hair in a bun?

Stupid wench. That c*nt can't have any of your retirement cake when you finally shuck these boneheads in 2058.

Is there some way you can fire her or just keep giving her crappy jobs to do?

Doc

Echo said...

I was out to dinner with a co-worker a year ago when the waitress took our order. "Have you and your dad decided what you want?"

My co-worker who is five years older than me just stared me down. "You're a dick, you know that?"

the princess said...

rude! just plain rude. you don't look old enough to retire at all...some people!

Beth said...

I know old. I'm a close friend of old. You, my dear, are not old.

Sandra said...

Don't worry - it is where you work where everyone over 25 has "a retirement date" on their Oprah vision board, you are just a puppy (or kitten)

X. Dell said...

Maybe you dreamed the question.

Bluez said...

you are the last person on my blogroll I would consider youth challenged.

Dale said...

I always said you were smart 668!

If you saw my credit card statement MichaelG you'd probably be almost as embarrassed as me!

Or we could just give her a worse haircut Mel!

I'll pretty much sleep with anyone for the right price Barbara but no, not this time.

Maybe I'll just print off your comment Doc for those special occasions, haha. I think she meant less offense than I took.

I hope you just laughed and laughed Echo and that it wasn't the last time you got to have dinner out.

I know Princess, look at my sprightly wings and antennae!

Very sweet of you Beth, thanks. You don't know old as well as you think you do either I'm sure.

Here kitty kitty. You're probably right Sandra.

It wasn't the dreamiest question X. Dell so I don't think so.

No more blues Bluez, I promise.

Leonesse said...

My son likes to remind me that I am old. I now get to remind him that he is 18 and I can send him packing any time I like. Now that I think about it, it's been awhile since he mentioned it! HA.

Katie Schwartz said...

They don't open for fear that you will whack yourself when assholic pricktards like the one you encountered speaks his mind.

You are young, strapping and stunning.

Coaster Punchman said...

Well, how soon CAN you retire? Come on Dale, spill!

Dale said...

You can just sing Anne Murray's "Snowbird" to him Leonesse: Spread your tiny wings and fly away...

Strapping Katie? Me? I love those glasses you're wearing. Please pass them around.

It's bound to be many many many years from now CP, you see, I work for the love it, and the helping of the people.
