The IT Crowd

Friday, February 15, 2013 By

Me: I think we have a meeting where we're going to brainstorm all the awesome things we want you guys to make our database do, as if by magic, because, of course, we have no idea how you make it work.

IT Genius: Haha, sounds good. I think email hell week is almost over, so we can get back to database updates soon.

Me: See, I'm convinced you guys sit around eating Fritos and drinking Mountain Dew Code Red and watching "The IT Crowd" and laughing at us mere mortals while your sentient pre-SkyNet computer system codes everything for you. But I might spend too much time in my own imagination.

IT Genius: It's almost like you have a hidden camera back here.

Me: I knew it! :-)

Can openers are essential office supplies

A.A.: Do you think anyone will notice if I took this can opener home for half an hour?

Me: Well, since I donated that to the office, I say it's fine. I give you permission.

A.A.: Oh, cool. I don't have a can opener at home.

Me: Well, then, I gift that can opener to you!

A.A.: No, I'm going to bring it back! I'm going to buy one, I just-

Me: You know they have them at the Dollar Tree for, like...

A.A.: A dollar?

Me: Thereabouts.

A.A.: No, I'm going to bring this back.

Me: I have more at home. I'll just bring in another one.

A.A.: Why do you have more at home?

Me: I really, really like opening cans.
