PJ Rani says this morning,
SNC, you baboon, you took the laptop home yesterday? My butt hurt all night!!!
SNC has been frozen in a state of giggly shock since then. After the rest of us pick ourselves off the floor and sewn up our split-from-laughter sides, PJ Rani explains..
If I work from home, I have to use my PC, right? And I have to sit on this tiny little chair which is too small for me. And I had all this extra work to do so I took it home!!!
IdeaSmith: We ought to have an office band
SNC: I was in a band in college!
IdeaSmith: What? Doing what?
PJ Rani: Playing the drum? Being the drum?
IdeaSmith: Oh shut it…so how about it BAA?
BAA: Why me? I don’t sing!
SFOS: You ought to be out-lawed from being a Bengali then!
IdeaSmith: I thought you liked music
BAA: That’s why I don’t sing!
BAA : Today I had my first crush
Us: Your first ever?
BAA (who has a new car): Yeah…I’ve been careful with the car all month
Us: Oh..crash, not crush
BAA: Yes, this guy came by and I sort of swung out. It wasn’t really his fault. *Pout pout*
BAA: And dad screamed at me
Us: But you didn’t scream at the guy?
BAA: No, it wasn’t his fault
Us: Since when were road accidents anyone’s fault?
BAA: You know we can claim the driver’s salary…?
SNC: Under conveyance allowance?
BAA: So I thought NB could sign for my receipts and I could sign his!
SNC: Great, so this is the new corporate saying, “You drive mine, I drive yours?”
SFOS: Can I claim a driver’s salary for my bike?
Today I put my techno-greek foot back in my mouth (again! again! again!)
SNC: Do you know the iRiver?
Me: The what river?
SNC: Okay, you don’t know it.
Me: I didn’t hear you…what river?
SNC: The iRiver
Me: I don’t know it. What’s that?
SNC: Its like the iPod, an MP3 player
SFOS: Who are the makers?
Me: Apple obviously (going by the preceding ‘i’)
SNC: No, it isn’t. Its a me-too.
Me: Hmm…I wonder how come no one has come up with ‘iPea’ as yet.
*Loud laughter while I realise what I’ve said*
Me: What the hell…okay, maybe ‘iPeas’.
Me: OH shut up! You know what I meant!
SNC: What…HARHARHAR….is wrong with you? KHEE KHEE KHEE…..there would be a problem if you didn’t!!!
Me: *Sulk sulk sulk*
SFOS: *in a serious undertone* That was a foe-grandpa
SFOS: A faux-grand-pas….the grandfather of a faux pas!
I’m a morning person.
I am a night person.
I’m just not a ‘during the day’ person!
I’m spectacular, first thing in the morning.
I’m the whole goddamn party at night.
But I’d rather be dead to the world in the ‘in-between’ hours
Not the best way to be in a 9-to-5 world!
This is based on a real conversation that I had with SNC and PJ Rani last night. They laughed and said it was a ‘quotable quote’. So if you hear someone say something as weird as this, you know where you read it first. Blah….now if only someone would read this blog….how symbolic….I’m at office ‘during the day’ after all. 🙂
Men have no appreciation for haute couture!!!!!!!! At least the two jokers I sit next do, don’t!
SNC: So why are you in casuals on a work-day?
Me: I’m not in casuals!
SFOS: So what are these then?
Me: I’m not wearing jeans!
SNC: So jeans are the only thing that’s casual?
Me: In this office, yes…
SFOS: But why are you dressed like this?
Me: I wanted to wear my new boots
Me: Not gumboots, you dolt! These are ultra-chic leather boots
SNC: They look like gumboots to me!
Me: You’re crazy. Gumboots don’t have zippers or heels, gumboots don’t have zips.
SFOS: Mine did.
Me: You’re both nuts. These are considered formal in western wear.
SNC: Where? Some part of interior South Africa?
Me: Idiot! Incidentally, do you also know that the traditional business skirt is supposed to be really short, micro-mini length almost?
SFOS: How do they do business then?
