12PM Lunch

Ac­coun­tant: This chick­en [Sue] brought in is yum­my. I’m just go­ing to take a break to eat it here rather than take it back to my desk. I don’t trust my­self not to get my pa­per­work all greasy.
Su­per­vi­sor: That’s why I’m go­ing to make a sand­wich out of it.
Sec­re­tary: Oh, I don’t care about greasy fin­gers. All I do is han­dle in­com­ing checks all day.

10AM Re­ply to Email

Co-work­er #1: Does she al­ways send emails in 72 point font?
Co-work­er #2: Oh, that’s “mad” typ­ing.
Co-work­er #1: How should I re­spond to this?
Co-work­er #3: You should re­ply us­ing 86 point font.
Co-work­er #2: They don’t make 86 point font. I’ve tried it be­fore. You should use 8 point font in Bern­hard Fash­ion BT or some oth­er font that’s hard to read.
Co-work­er #1: Yeah, I’ll do that. She won’t be able to read it.
Co-work­er #2: That’ll re­al­ly piss her off.
