We have threads for annoyances and what made us cheerful, but then there's those weird things that happen.....   My workplace is particularly fertile ground for the surreal. 2 current examples:

Yeah, me too.   As soon as I'm a real member, I'll upload a real avatar.   Or did you mean my sig?

You talkin' to me?

The officious spellcheck feature in Outlook just tried to change "parmigiana" to "ptarmigan".

That's because you didn't use an upper case "P" :D

Overheard at the grocery this evening between A) a slightly disheveled woman, perhaps in her late 60s, who seemed like she might not get out that much, and B) a friendly, pregnant 30-something. They'd never met before.

 

A: Good evening.

 

B: Why hi there! How are you doing?

 

A: I'M DEPRESSED!

 

B: Why are you depressed?

 

A: I'm worried about the next two weeks, and what will happen on November 2!

 

B: Well, no need to be depressed now. Wait and see what happens. Perhaps you'll have no reason to be depressed, so chin up and keep the faith.

 

A: I dunno...I think I'm just going to be depressed. What kind of toilet paper do you use?

 

B (without skipping a beat): Usually Seventh Generation, but sometimes Charmin.

 

A: You know, Scott is The Best, and it's on sale! Only 60 cents a roll, for 1000 sheets!

 

B: Thanks, I'll have a look.

 

A: I'm not sure if you should go ahead and try it. If you don't like it, I don't want you to blame me!
