Overheard in the office

I recently discovered “Overheard in the Office” on Yahoo. Its basically things people write in that they’ve overheard in an office or really, just anywhere. As with all real life moments, some are funny, some are not. Here’s a couple-hopefully you’ll laugh.

Boss: Hey, can you make a calendar that looks like this? [Hands a paper to her.]
Underling: Yeah. You know this is from [the other agency], right?
Boss: Yeah, the client likes it. We have to go with that.
Underling: But their calendar is a copy of the one I did for the client. The client just handed it to them, and they made all these little changes.
Boss: Yeah, just do it like that.
Underling: But I already did it. They only took my calendar and messed with it.
Boss: Just make it look like this one!
Underling: But it's my calendar!
Boss: Just make it look like this one! [Boss stalks off.]
Underling, to entire office: Am I in a Dilbert cartoon?
Susan*: What language was that?Office lady, hanging up phone: Croatian.Susan: Oh, wow, I didn't know you were black. [Entire office goes silent.]Boss, from his office: Susan*, you're fired.
Manager at employee bathroom: Why is this door propped open?
Waiter: Eric* just dropped a bomb in there.
Manager: F*ck, man, spray that air freshener.
Waiter: I did. The stink actually laughed at me.
Girl #1: Hey, do you want to do the Ann Landers 5k with me?
Girl #2: Ann Landers has her own 5k?
Girl #1: Yeah, it's to raise money for whatever she died of.
Girl #2: I thought she just died of being old. Wouldn't it be awesome if there was a 5k to raise money to prevent old?

Wow. I'm feeling way better about the level of discourse in my office now.
