"Damnit He Put My Stapler in Jello Again"

This afternoon Coworker S. is sitting in my office trying to convince me the best way to fix my iTunes database so that I can effectively use smart playlists. I was getting ready to call a user as we were arguing about my lack of care to fix all 9000+ tags down to the crazy level he did his own, and I expressed the need to pee. (I know, but he's my office husband so he hears it whether he likes it or not.) He knows my bladder is the size of a lima bean - so what does he do while I'm on the phone with the user? He gets a bottle of water, and proceeds to pour that bottle of water, ever so slowly, into a glass.

While I was cursing him under my breath as I literally ran for the ladies room, I smiled. Having people like him at work keeps me sane. Laughter really is the best medicine.

p.s. - the post title is a Dwight quote from "The Office".

At least you didn't find the contents of your cubicle in the vending machine.

I have to say that I love Coworker S.'s sense of humor. Now you have to plot your revenge.

I always get a kick out of the crap Jim does to Dwight. Those two make that show, IMO.

That's hilarious! If you aren't having a little fun in the office everyonce in a while, it's really hard to stay sane.

I think that's why I like going into an office again, even if it is across town. Stupid commute.

Followed you back from Fred's (he's a good egg, and been here today, I see).

I was going to move on when I see the comment description is "non-lurkers" so I thought I should leave a note so I don't earn that moniker.

I discourage students from leaving to use the restroom in my middle school class.

On occasion, while some boy is begging me to let him go, I stall while I throwing a video of a large waterfall I made onto the large screen with the volume going.

A little mean, a little amusing, but it gets them to use the restroom during break before class!

He didn't put that stapler in yellow jellow, did he?
