Completely Random Things Overheard in the Office This Morning

"Where are my pants???"

"I'm so hungry I could eat this fax machine."

"So, did you try those new drugs yet?"

"Someone's cologne smells like dog ass."

"Why do you not have anything on your head?"

"I love pickles."

"I hate pickles."

"There's toilet paper on my shoe!"

"Why don't you build one with your kid's Legos?"

It's shaping up to be a very strange sort of day. When the first thing that happens when you get to the office is seeing a manager running down the hall yelling that he can't find his pants, you know it's going to be an unusual day.

Oh my!! Was the manager wearing pants? There really are a lot of strange happenings going on around you. I'm sure glad that no one was hurt in the Ash Wednesday service!

"Someone's cologne smells like dog ass." is in the #1 spot so far for my Sentence of the Day today. That's awesome.

The manager was wearing pants at the time, which was a relief. Who wants to see a manager running around in boxers? Not me! But this meant I had to refrain from yelling back, "They're on your butt!" which was my first instinct.

The cologne wouldn't have smelled so much like dog ass if the person who was wearing it hadn't (apparently) showered in it.

but not finding your pants is like not being able to find your glasses--when they are right on your face. :)

And that's all I have to say about that.

I've never lost pants, though they have been stolen. :-p

You overhear a lot of ... interesting things, living in cubeland.

I've been thinking about blogging some of my overhearings as well - occasionally someone says something so magnificently surreal that I have to jot it down on a notepad. I'm so irked that you got to it first. :)

Were the pickle people talking to each other? Or just saying things at random about pickles?

Man, if I had a nickel for every time I'd gotten all the way to the office, grabbed my morning muffin from the cafeteria, and sat down to work only to suddenly realize I'd forgotten my pants...

"So, did you try those new drugs yet?"
Is my favorite one sentence.

"There's toilet paper on my shoe!"

"Why don't you build one with your kid's Legos?",
is my favorite combo.

And, Beth, do please blog your surreal overhearings.
