Discussion between me and a colleague/friend:
– Remember that time when you said that we each only have 1 life? That was really deep.
-Oh yeah? Wanna hear something really deep? A well. No, wait, i can do better than that. An underground lake. Or a mountain cave.
Some time ago, i was working at the BlueCo, in a program called MS Excel. My computer- to be honest- was by far not the best one, and the files i was managing were – to be honest- huge. The programs kept shutting down unexpectedly and thus i, to counter this problem, developed this skill: CTRL+S every 10 seconds.
And it helped. While saving MS Office Browser windows, Explorer windows, Picture viewers….
But skills have this characteristic of depletion over time. Too bad, because a CTRL+S would have been very handy today, 10 seconds before my Word Document shut down and there were no other versions of my file available….
It’s a good thing i have a good memory. It is a skill i use daily :)
I bragged to a colleague/friend that i can already do 6 push-ups (normal, not girly). He insisted i show him, to make sure i do them right. So yes, i did a push up on the balcony, at the office today.
Yes, i think i like my work buddies.
Happens almost every day – so it deserves a comic and a post :D
As the office handy man was fixing something in the vicinity of my workstation, his phone rang. I turn to my colleague:
” What song is that?”
( after a few moments)
” It is such an enigma… what song is that?”
Enigma – Sadeness
As i was working and minding my own business, at one moment i took my headphones off and went towards the coat hanger to look for something in my bag.
My colleague looked up at me and smiled.
‘I see you like Queen. Me too!’
I smiled guiltily and assumed that the volume was a bit too high in my headphones.
‘Nope. I heard you singing just now.’
As i was going down the hall to the kitchen, i meet a colleague round the corner.
Was that you singing just now?
I laughed. ‘Yep.’
No further comment.
Cars are simpler to deal with than women… when something is wrong with a car, the informative button lights up, and not the “I’m Fine” button.
“Why don’t you drink natural coffee, instead of instant?
“Because the natural one is too strong, and I end up typing too quickly and I finish my tasks in 1 hour and then there is nothing for me to do for the rest of the day.”
