Marital spat? I dunno.<br /> <br /> ~ outside a SCUBA shop, a few months ago, Muncie, IndianaThat's one expensive chicken http://www.inpassing.org/node/view/2770 "I just got an email saying the big teal chicken is 20 million over budget."<br /> <br /> - a co-worker, who startled me by suddenly speaking into his hands-free set as I was talking to someone else in the next cubicleDead Men's Cars http://www.inpassing.org/node/view/2756 "I consider myself a pretty sensitive guy, but we've got all these people kickin' off and leaving their cars behind..."<br /> <br /> - a co-worker, I assume discussing the rising trends in both death notices and used car adverts around the officeRural Indiana http://www.inpassing.org/node/view/2750 "You live around 400 South, right?"<br /> <br /> "Yeah. Don't drive by."<br /> <br /> I was wondering why we should stay away, until he continued the story:<br /> <br /> "So then the other neighbor comes out, and <i>he</i> takes out a shotgun..."<br /> <br /> - two co-workers, as I was walking by, IndianaIt's a spider! http://www.inpassing.org/node/view/2742 "If somebody doesn't kill that spider, April's going home."<br /> <br /> * a little while later *<br /> <br /> "You can call me a sissypants all day long. I really don't care."<br /> <br /> - two co-workers (one named April), a few rows away, cubicle farm, IndianaSurfer DBA http://www.inpassing.org/node/view/2726 I just want to write to that dude. I mean, there must be, like, some serious floater action going on.<br /> <br /> - a co-worker, in a cubicle nearbyAh, the joys of middle management http://www.inpassing.org/node/view/2469 "Hey baby. I've been looking for you."<br /> <br /> "Where were you all afternoon?! ...and where are those trailers? Bend over!"<br /> <br /> - my supervisor and his manager, both male, as they were passing my cubicleDoes he even work here? http://www.inpassing.org/node/view/2468 "And then the marijuana smell started coming up from under the door, so I grabbed a towel..."<br /> <br /> - the owner of the janitorial service, talking on a phone in the printer bay at work, a few days ago<br /> <br /> Perhaps it's just me, but work seems to be getting weirder lately.Help desk honesty http://www.inpassing.org/node/view/2415 "You call me from the bar, okay?

I'm open to suggestions. There were 5 or 6 people altogether and they were all laughing hysterically, except for Harry. I should perhaps explain that the Lilac Festival takes place in a park full of, well, lilacs.Taken Down http://www.inpassing.org/node/view/1901 My own personal quote board has been put back where it belongs. If you recognized yourself in any of those quotes and were offended, sorry about that. I'm pretty sure it was all true, but it probably doesn't need to be that public.Tired http://www.inpassing.org/node/view/1894 I am so tired today. I did manage to get four hours of sleep last night, which is a nice change.<br /> <br /> Anybody else awake?<br /> <br /> How are you, Mike?
