‘Fuck You’ Was More of a Re­quest Than an Ex­ple­tive

Man­ag­er: Can you gath­er up the oth­er guys? We have to move a bunch of stuff.
Em­ploy­ee: Fuck you.
Man­ag­er: What did you just say to me?
Em­ploy­ee: Fuck you, ass­hole.
Man­ag­er: Are you nuts?
Em­ploy­ee: Fuck you, bitch.
Man­ag­er: You’re fired. Get out of here.
Em­ploy­ee: I was­n’t clocked in. You can’t fire me.
Man­ag­er walks to com­put­er, clocks him in, says, ‘You’re fired,’ and then clocks him out.
Em­ploy­ee: That’s so un­fair.

Boss: Je­sus Christ, Lau­ren*!
Lau­ren*: I know, right?
Boss: Why did we hire you again?

Catholic sem­i­nary li­brary em­ploy­ee: Are you go­ing to in­ter­view Jane’s friend for the po­si­tion?
Catholic sem­i­nary li­brary su­per­vi­sor: No, I de­cid­ed she was­n’t qual­i­fied enough.
Catholic sem­i­nary li­brary em­ploy­ee: That’s a re­lief.
Catholic sem­i­nary li­brary su­per­vi­sor, sur­prised: Why do you say that? Don’t you like her?
Catholic sem­i­nary li­brary em­ploy­ee: It’s just that… Have you ever over­heard any of their phone con­ver­sa­tions?
Catholic sem­i­nary li­brary su­per­vi­sor: No.
Catholic sem­i­nary li­brary em­ploy­ee: It’s like they’re in a com­pe­ti­tion over who has the most in­tense vi­sions of the blessed Vir­gin Mary. We al­ready get enough of that shit.
