It's funny to me...
Yesterday I was chatting with my boss. He has two main interests outside of work. Birds and Golf. He loves to bird watch. His ring tone on his cell phone is a bird chirping. I mean this guy loves birds. So I informed him that my parents had three birds. (Yes I was kissing ass, so what?) I asked him if he owned any birds and he responded "I don't believe in caging animals. I just like to watch them in their natural environment." In an attempt to pull my foot out of my mouth I quickly responded "So, what do you know about this golf thing?" It made him chuckle. I think it was obvious I was trying to back paddle.
W1 took the day off to hang out with Ian on his last day of freedom before the rest of his family arrived. What do you think they did today? Went to the go cart track? No. Dave and Busters? No. Anything else a teenager on summer vacation would enjoy? You tell me. She took him to a museum. That's right, ruin summer vacation with an educational trip to the museum. I'm not 100% sure on this, but I think she's going to give him a pop quiz on the Periodic Table when they get back. Okay, I'm only kidding. I'm sure they had fun. I know they were headed into the Imax when I last spoke with her.
Final laugh. Coworker S has a boss we will call Coworker J. There is an autistic guy who works here and basically rides the elevators all day. I see him around all the time and I'm pretty sure he works in the mail room. Apparently he has worked here for many many years. Coworker J said about 10 years ago he got in the elevator with the autistic guy and jokingly asked him if he was going to the 9th floor. The guy started yelling at him, screaming about how there were only 8 floors!!! Fast forward to last Monday. Coworker J gets in the elevator on the 1st floor and presses 8. The autistic guy also got in the elevator behind him and presses 5, 6, and 7. The door opens on 5 and he walks off, leaving Coworker J to sit in the elevator stopping on every floor. After 10 years he finally got him back. You see, patience always pays off.
