Quotes from the Office

From one of my many bosses. Looking out the window at rain he says, "I still don't get it. How does it decide to rain one minute and snow the next?" Gee, no idea boss. I think it's a pretty complex thing involving the tempature falling below freezing and midgets hovering above the clouds with magic wands. But don't quote me on that, I only took a few science classes in college.

This is the same guy who told the following two jokes in a meeting. With me and 4-5 women. The first joke was set-up by me asking about a software conversion, and what if we didn't get certain applications that we were asking for. He says, "Well Rob, I guess you are just going to act like a blind man at an orgy. Feel your way around." Yes, he added the grouping hand motions and everything. It was quite a delivery. Then, not even 5 minutes later he sees another opening and pounces. Trust me. I tried to stop him, but he just barreled through with, "You're going to have to be like a midget at a urinal. Stay on your toes at all times." It was classic, he couldn't have made the meeting more awkward if he had tried.

Welcome to the new American workplace. The idea of working on an assembly line and maybe losing an arm sounds more attractive by the week.
