“Larry Stone” – submitted by Anonymous Reader
I thought you might like to know what has been going on in my super efficient office this week. First off, my boss is helping his niece to find and buy a used car so that has taken up all of his time, of course. So he has been sending emails to ads for people selling their cars. For a reason unknown to me, he started giving out a fake name to these people. The name he has chosen is Larry Stone. So we started getting calls for Larry Stone earlier this week. Of course we did not know who that was since he gave out our office number but did not tell us of the situation, so we told them they had the wrong number.
Until one of the callers then said, “Well can I speak to ‘my boss’s actual name’ then?”
Apparently while emailing out this fake Larry Stone name to people’s car ads, he used his actual email with his real name on it. He is a genius really.
“Relish the Moment” – submitted by Anonymous Reader
Today, my boss decided before calling any clients, he needed to immediately address an important issue. That issue was the expiration date of the jar of relish in our office fridge. He noted that there was not an expiration date, so he spent the next 45 minutes calling the manufacturer of the pickle relish to get an answer. After being put on hold and transferred numerous times, he finally got his answer regarding the relish. He was very pleased with himself after as though he had actually accomplished something.
FYI, the company said there is no expiration date and just to refrigerate it after opening
“Take Your Pants Off” – submitted by Anonymous Reader
So, today at work after lunch, I said I was really full and glad I wore stretchy pants. Then my boss says, “Well take your pants off if you want to. Just keep your underwear on. We don’t mind.” My coworker quickly responded, “Yes we do.” He said this all nonchalantly like it was a real option. I am still not sure if he was serious or joking. So anyway, that is my story of when my boss told me to take off my pants at work. What a fool.
Thanks so much for reading!
