Overheard at the office

From yesterday:

Joe: Actually, I always thought it would be more fun to be a girl scout.

Caitlin: Because of the cookies? (She knows about my sweet tooth).

Joe: No. Because of the girls.

Today our building was evacuated for some unknown reason for a few minutes. Via text messages:

Josh: I got coffee, is the building still quarantined?

Joe: Only for you. The rest of us are at our desks.

Brett: Greg decontaminated your workstation. Land mines have been removed. You can come in now.

  1. That sounds like a great place to work, with a great sense of humor! Unlike all too many places now!

  2. An old, pre-PC/TRANSQWERTYUIOP Boy Scout joke went;
    What happens to a Boy Scout on his 16th birthday?
    He becomes a Girl Scout.

    • During the summer between my sophomore and junior years of college (1985), I worked as the camp handyman at a Girl Scout camp in Colorado. One of the conditions of employment was that I become a dues-paying girl scout. Still one of the weirdest checks I ever wrote.

  3. Half our building was evacuated due to a smoke alarm. Guess which half I worked in. Imagine my surprise when the smiling fireman waved at me thru the bulletproof plexiglass (we made credit cards). Turns out the alarms in the old and new parts of the building weren’t exactly integrated. The business moved to Florida despite a promise not to. A hurricane took ’em out. Perhaps there is justice. But I digress…
