One day I will learn to keep my mouth shut

January 5th, 2011 · 5 Comments

That day is not yet here.

So the first actual* day back in the office after holiday vacation, I’m sitting in a meeting with a couple of coworkers and we’re joking around about how it’s been so long since we were in the office that we forgot people’s names. After watching one guy wrack his brains trying to remember something in an app that we use everyday..

Manager: Wait, you couldn’t remember that?

Coworker: Yeah…I know.

Me: Maybe we should have a quiz in next week’s meeting. With tough questions about people’s names and stuff.

Manager: Sure! Questions like “What do you call your boss?”

Me: You might want to phrase that question a little differently.

Everybody laughed but…dammit.  This stuff is gonna come back to haunt me, I just know it.

    I had a little deja vu this week, and you were right in the middle of it!

    Hmm… In that situation I would have been thinking the same things, but never would have said anything. That being said, you have quite the talented tongue. Let me rephrase that…you are quite the conversationalist… as evidenced by the links galore provided by the Omnibus Driver.
