Things I DIDN'T say today

Scene 1: On the phone with a supplier. Every time I call this company I get a big-assed helping of stupid. I didn't say, "Can I stop you for a minute because I'd really like to speak to someone even stupider than you this time."

Scene 2: Reading an email from a director at our company. She was replying to my simple request that she fill out a requisition to return a card file she bought in March but had neglected to mention that it didn't suit her needs until November. Her one word reply was...Amazing. I didn't say, "Why yes, yes I am. Thank you for noticing."

Scene 3: Sitting at my desk listening to bubblehead blond (or is it blonde) as she walks by my boss's office. Bubblehead exclaims, "You're eating an apple!" to my boss. I didn't say, "That's pretty observant for someone who's IQ is likely less than the apple's."

How did you know I was eating an apple?

From a distance, an apple can look like a pear to a blond. Just so you know.
And? sometimes to a drunk in the middle of the night, an onion can be mistaken for an apple. *makes face*

Good for you, Lightsy.

There are lots of things I don't say on a daily basis. But I'm thinking about making a change.
