Ohio Pro­vides Am­ple Ev­i­dence That There Is No Un­trou­bled Par­adise

Boss: At least we aren’t in Tahi­ti!
Mar­ket­ing guy: Tahi­ti?
Boss: Yeah, I heard they had a bad storm there.
Mar­ket­ing guy: I did­n’t hear about that.
Boss: Oh… I think it was an earth­quake ac­tu­al­ly.
Mar­ket­ing guy: Uh-huh. You mean Haiti?
Boss: Yeah, that’s it. An earth­quake in Haiti.

…Does­n’t This Mean They’ll Kick You Out?

Boss, dur­ing sales meet­ing: I’m still try­ing to hire a new sales­per­son. Ac­tu­al­ly, Mark* was the best can­di­date, based on Mon­i­ca’s* rec­om­men­da­tion, but he could­n’t ac­cept the job. And that hap­pens. So, Mon­i­ca*, you don’t need to feel guilty about wast­ing any­one’s time. Al­though I don’t think you do feel guilty, which is re­al­ly weird be­cause you’re Jew­ish.
