Okay... I take a bit of blame on this one, but only a little...

We have an enormous conference room at work that has two big slab doors that are made to look like/blend into the walls. Anyway after a meeting today somebody goes to our facilities director (my boss) and tells him that they can't get one of the doors open. This was about the time I was wandering into the kitchen and get dragged into the mess. I'm instructed to go to the other side of the door and push while he (my boss) pulls. Now the big door never sat right on its hinges and there is a big gap at the top where the door meets the wall and no gap at the bottom. Automatically everybody assumes the door hinge is broken and the door is just jammed. So the director and I push and pull for a bit, examining the gap and pondering. So he tells me to kick the bottom of the door where it is sticking. Kick hard! So I do... A few times... The door budges a little but now it is pulling up the carpet. So I get on my hands and knees to examine what's pulling the carpet and what do I see but the lock bolt sticking down. The door was locked! And since it only locks by the bolt sticking in the floor we thought it was just wedged. I turned the lock and the door opened. We all feel a bit dumb right now. The only saving grace is that nobody EVER locks the conference room door and thusly nobody considered the possibility that it WAS locked...

my friend has over 5 hours of overtime this week so wanted to leave early today (so we can get some shopping done). so-she asked her boss if she could leave 1/2 an hour early. her boss informed her that she would need to take PTO-even though she has over 5 hours of O.T. WTF?!??!?!

I have lent all of my Harry Potter books to one of my co-workers and we've discussed them over the years. But she still constantly calls Snape "Snip". Despite the fact that I always call him Snape, it's never sunk in...

Classamate...

We are standing looking at the detention list. It gives names and the reason for the detention.

If it says Varia, it means for various offenses.

My Classamte says, pointing to Varia...

"Oh that's from Miss Varia(A rather young Teacher) gives when people call her hot"

I rolled my eyes and just walked away...

Wouldn't it make more sense for the list to say "Vario" ???

Me to Receptionist: Did you get the key I left you for the front door?

Her: Yes, I did, thank you. But I don't know how to use it.

Me: You put it in the lock and you turn it. :shock:


Edited to add: Maybe I should have informed her that it is also necessary to REMOVE the key after its use.

Perhaps she worded it wrong. Often, keys can be a nuisance and they have to be turned a certain way, or they get stuck...etc.

So the receptionist intercoms me in my office: Jackie (name changed to protect the innocent and the fact that I can't remember it) from Manhattan is here to see you.

Me: (Thinking that I didn't have any appointments for the morning) Who?

Receptionist: Jackie from Manhattan.

So I go out thinking that it was either someone from Mahattan Fire And Safety (our fire extinguisher servicer) or someone soliciting buisness on behalf of a company called Manhattan (something).

A woman is sitting in the lobby.

Me: Hi Jackie. I'm Mike. I'm sorry, you're from where?

Jackie: Manhattan. But I'm from the Bronx originally.

Me: I mean which company are you from.

Turns out the cleaning company (Safety Building Services) sent her as a fill-in.

LOL, Michael

This Annoying kid that sits next to me. (mind you I'm in a prvate school so the teacher prayed before lunch. Something rolled off my desk and I opened my eyes to pick it up. This 16 year old **** runs to the teacher and says

KID (who is definatly a taddeling b@stard): "He had his eyes open when we prayed!"

ME: "How in God's name (no pun intended) would you know unless your eyes were open?"

NUN/TEACHER: He's right, now Elias (me) You can write a page on why to keep your eyes closed during prayer."

ME: "But obviously he had his open too. How else would he have seen me?"

NUN/TEACHER: "Don't argue or you'll be write a page on why not to argue with a (my input: b*tchy) nun."


:evil: If i had a candlestick....

That's terrible. Some times teachers are so oblivious.

I never saw the need to close your eyes during prayer. But I can sympathize. I had the worst nun ever when I was in Algebra II. I hated her. I called her Satan in a Habit.

Man, I could write a book out of all the idiotic things my classmates have ever said and done! One time in my science class, there was this one girl named (I'll change her name to spare her embarrassment) Allison who had to write her name down for the group she was in, only there happened to be another girl with the same name in the class, so the teacher asked Allison to spell her name in case the two girls had different spellings of their names--guess what? She doesn't know how to spell her own name AND SHE ADMITTED IT IN FRONT OF THE CLASS.
Another time in Geography, we were discussing why the Medditerranean Ocean is so polluted. One kid's theory? "Because the fish *beep* in it."
:lol:
I could give more examples, but I think you get the idea.
Anyone who thinks Canadians are meek and mild-mannered has obviously never seen us during Question Period!
