With the changing season, people get sick. I've heard people sneezing and coughing behind the cubicles, some even had a change of voice. And then today the inevitable happened: Blue-Eyed Editor took a day off due to cold. While everyone wish for his recovery, I'd like to jot down several conversations we had that make me smile everytime I remember it.
Situation: We are waiting for photo files from our sources
BE: If you want to forward me the photos, use my hotmail email address (then spells out said email address). Don't use the office email, because it will bounce.
Me: (write down carefully) Ok.
BE: Or my gmail, it's brucealmighty at gmail dot com
Me: (looks up and raises my eyebrows) You really have email with that name?
BE: (grins) No, I was joking
#2. Put Her Back To Prison
Situation: BE was typing on his desk, Fith approached him.
Fith: Hi Boss, I'm free (read this as,"Give me more jobs." Yep, Fith is that dedicated, so unlike me)
BE: Ok, we're going to call police and put you back behind bars
Me: (overhearing from the adjacent cubicle) *suppress laughters*
