So Do Not Call Me

Boss pointing to bathroom stall: If you need me, I’ll be in my office, haha.
Employee: Um, I’m not gonna ask you anything while you’re taking a shit.
Boss: Oh, I’m not taking a shit. I’m just gonna sit in there and play Tetris on my phone.

Someday He’ll Have His Own Interns to Torment

Scientist #1 to intern, smacking him in the face with a latex glove: I challenge you to a duel! [Intern rolls his eyes and walks away.] Interns these days — they don’t have a sense of humor.
Scientist #2: Does it really matter? He could be a psycho serial killer, but as long as he does my work for me I don’t really care.

But the First Step Is Not Admitting You Have a Problem

Staffer: I just left Publix and my cashier’s name was Kartoon.
HR manager: Oh, yeah! My wife was telling me about her. Do you think her parents meant to name her ‘Khartoum,’ after the country in Africa?
Staffer: I don’t know. Maybe it’s just a popular name from her parents’ native country.
HR manager: Oh, you mean she’s not black?
Staffer: What? No, she’s Asian.
HR manager: Oh. Was I stereotyping just now?
Staffer: Ummm, yeah, a little bit… You are so in the right profession.
