Friendly Reminder: Don't put anything in an email you wouldn't want on the front page of the newspaper. Specifically, when someone asks why you requested/demanded a demotion don't respond with "I hated working for [Person A] more than I like money." in an email if you still cross paths with Person A on a semi-regular basis.

Oops.

Speaking of work, my co-worker at RRC is Sandy Williams, Ricky's mom. We share the same Director and went to lunch with a couple of other people at the UT Club today. There was no Ricky siting, but I am willing to go eat the shrimp buffet with her anytime, just in case.

If you're going to walk into a conference room and refer to someone as completely worthless and incompetent make sure they're not in the conference room speaker phone.

Fortunately I was edged out for Emergency Brake of the Week by someone dialed in remotely who shared their screen and found themselves unable to minimize a profanity laden instant message conversation they were having with someone else in our office.

In a meeting:

Me: What smells like mint? It smells like someone ate a case of breath mints or drank a bottle of schnapps during lunch and threw up or something.

Female Coworker : It is essential oil that I put into my water.

Me *picks up tiny vial of mint essential oil and smells it.*

Later via office instant messenger :

Me: My hand reeks of that mint crap. If I rub this in my eyes on accident am I going to wish I hadn't?

Female Coworker: idk. Probably

*long pause*

Female Coworker: I guess you'll just have to rub it somewhere else. ;)

Female Coworker is married.

TO BE CONTINUED

Today is the big office Thanksgiving lunchoen at Cotton Patch Cafe.

Via IM:

Married Coworker: You going to the lunch today?

Me:. Nope. Purposefully scheduled a telecon with (redacted) so I wouldn't have to go. You?

Married Coworker:. Yeah like I'm going to eat a meal at Rotten Snatch Cafe.
