11AM Filing

Boss: All of these folders need to be filed right away, but I can’t trust the desk guys to do it.

Tutor #1: Isn’t that their job?

Boss: Yes, but they need to be filed alphabetically, and they can’t do that.

Tutor #1: They can’t file alphabetically?

Boss: Apparently not. [Tutor #2] spent two hours yesterday trying to put everything back in order.

Tutor #2, breaking into laughter: Is that what you thought I was doing? Shit!

Boss: What were you doing, then?

Tutor #2: I dropped my ring in the drawer, and I had to take out all the folders to find it! It took forever, too.

Boss: Did you at least put them back alphabetically when you were done?

Tutor $2: Are you on crack? That’s the desk guy’s job!

Professor: What's the big deal? I don't understand what I did wrong here.
Angry grad student: You put information in that grant that is absolutely wrong! You totally misconstrued the results!
Professor: Well…fine, but I said it was “early preliminary data,” so it should be okay.
