Coffee conversations brought to you by dumb and dumber

So I'm walking over to the fridge at work today to grab me a can of mountain dew, and there are two women standing in front of the coffee pot, talking. I walk past just in time to catch the tail-end of their conversation, which was apparently about their relative work-load at the moment.

One says something like, "You wouldn't believe the number of TPS reports on my desk today -- it's brutal." The other one replies, "Yeah, it's either fast or famine...fast or famine." And the other woman nods her head and says, "Yep. You got that right."

I guess it's pretty bad when your only choices are between voluntary and involuntary starvation.

  6. yes it does... your last sentence was "I wish I had a job where I got paid whether I worked or not" which made it seem like you didn't know the actual quote.

    bite a big sword there, mister....

  8. I have a friend who is constantly getting sayings wrong.

    "Take it as a grain of salt"

    "I don't like her aurora"

    She's hilarious!

  11. My ol' lady always messes up sayings. One of her favorites is, "you're walking on thin water."

    Joey: Rach, you gotta find out if he's in the same place you are. Otherwise, it's just a moo point.
