Potluck Day

It's potluck day today at work. It's a day to get together and break bread with your coworkers. A day to get to know the folks in distant cubicles. A day to lie about how much you like Janine's potato salad and that Steve's corn dog bites aren't dry and hard at all. But most of all it is a day to let your hair down and tell stories about your boyfriend passing out drunk with his pants down and sporting a woody.

You see, there is a girl here who can't seem to stop saying and doing inappropriate things around the office. Since I have been here, she has had several mishaps. Here is a short list:
  • Got wasted at last company get together and decided it would be funny to grab everybody's asses.
  • Threw up outside above event on a very crowded street.
  • Accidentally sent an email to everyone in the department asking if she could borrow a tampon.
  • A picture of her flashing some guy at a bar was circulated throughout the office.
  • Called a client with the name Bonner "Mr. Boner" repeatedly until he corrected her on the pronunciation.

I am not a person who is offended by any of this but I feel bad for her cuz she is never going to get promoted as long as she is at this company. Poor girl.

I think she sounds like a blast! A hot mess but really entertaining to have around.

Natalie: She's a good person to make you feel better about your own shortcomings.

3rd: She's actually kind of a gossip.

Winter: Smart-ass.

My wife got a little tipsy at her last office get together. I really hope you're not talking about her.

Grant: Unless your wife hangs out at bars in Wrigleyville and flashes her tits for drinks, I think she's safe.

Winter said...

Michael: You love it.

Ah, the classic workplace blunder. Tell me this, has she ever tucked her skirt INTO her stockings and then walk around the office? That's always a crowd-pleaser...
