A decidedly hostile work environment

One of the joys of the people I work with is our continuing struggle to make each other uncomfortable. The other morning, I managed to thoroughly creep out my boss.

“Hey, did you see the new message on the Hooters sign? It made me think of you immediately.”

She was a bit disturbed. “I’m not sure I want to hear the rest of this…”

“It says, ‘Red meat isn’t bad for you — green fuzzy meat is.'”

(Did I mention she’s a vegetarian?)

But later that same day, another of my colleagues got me even worse. I was complaining about the muzak. I described it as “like a TV theme show — but a bad 70’s TV theme show.”

He listened carefully. “Nah. That’s Michael Jackson’s ‘Never Can Say Goodbye’ in E-Minor.”

The same guy later told me he had just bought the first season of “Diff’rent Strokes” on DVD.

I think I need to keep my distance from him…
