Do You Have This Much Fun at Work?

Crazy Co-Worker Story #1
One of the guys at my office is growing a goatee and it's coming in nicely. One of my co-workers, better known to some of my fellow bloggers as Fav File Clerk, was telling our handsome co-worker, while coyly circling her mouth with her index finger, that his goatee was looking good. She then suavely turned to walk away and...ran into the wall.

Crazy Co-Worker Story #2
One of my co-workers broke the back of her chair. This co-worker searched office supply catalogs for days looking for the perfect chair to replace her broken chair. The chair finally came in today and when I went into her office, she was sitting in her new chair swiveling left then right and looked up at me and said, "Do I look fat in this chair?"

I said, "What?!"

She said, "Veronica was sitting in this chair a while ago and she is so tiny that she barely covered the seat. Look at me. My ass is practically hitting the arms on both sides."

We've all heard people ask, "Do these pants make me look fat?" And, I've even had people ask me if their haircut made them look fat. But, this is a new one on me: "Does this chair make me look fat?"

What's next? Does this cubicle make me look fat?

Sounds like a fun place, though a bit image conscious ;-)

Where I work it has become more laughing rather than crying these days. We do laugh a lot though.

Now I am just waiting for one of the repair guys to ask if his stool makes him look fat, because you know they do!

Comfort Addict,

By cubicle I gather you are referring to the Sensory Deprovation Chamber.

God help me if I get as fat as my SDC. Call Guiness!

My favorite response to the "Does this dress make me look fat?" question is...

"NO! It's all the cake and ice cream you eat that makes you look fat."

Needless to say, I've never, ever used it. I value my life, among other particulars.

Does this comment make me look fat?

Pkay, so today I looked at the repairs guys sitting on their stools, and yeah one of the stools does make them look fat, but I didn't say anything....

My enormous ego makes me look fat, but I feel like Kate Moss.

And if I must say so myself, that goatee is coming in very nicely. He's no Dave Navarro, though!

Comfort Addict - I'm sure it's already been said (or at least thought of) by some poor woman.

Susan - It is a great place to work. It can be stressful but sometimes those are the funniest times.

Ed - SDC? I like that. Personally, sometimes I like being deprived of my senses.

Marinade Dave - I'm sure there would be some damage to your particulars if you made that statement out loud.

Lorna - HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

Susan - Oh, my God! That's hilarious.

Jen T. - He's the best D we have though. :)
