Terrible habit #509234 of mine: writing down extremely abbreviated abbreviations and then having no clue what the heck I am supposed to remember. (Also see: putting important things in super secret awesome hiding places, never to be found again). I taped this note to my monitor at work the other day…
Plunk? Pluck? PMK? It was 3 days before I figured out what it was again. I REALLY need to quit doing this. The other month I made a note that said “C 22,” and again, couldn’t figure it out for a while, then realized it meant I was supposed to tell someone (whose name started with a C) that we had 22 people for a meeting. I was like “SERIOUSLY, past Sarah?!!?” Ugh!
Pinterest. There really, really, REALLY needs to be some sort of “block wedding” feature. The sheer volume of wedding gorgeousness……. it’s… I mean…. there are….. WORDS ESCAPE ME. Pure torture that I no longer have one to plan. How short of time is socially acceptable before we can renew our vows?! 🙂
Unfortunate Name for a Person in Broadcasting. We caught this guy on the local news the other day…
Yea, as in “I can molest Tina”. I thought producers changed stuff like that?!
Here’s Your Sign. The other day I called a place and asked for a person that worked there. A front desk person picked up and I said “Hi, is ______ there?” And she said, “Yes, would you like me to transfer you?”…”Uhh… yes?” WTF? No, I’m planning their surprise party, just curious if they were at their desks! Or: no, I since decided I want to talk to you instead! Hello! NOW, I gave this person the benefit of the doubt, because Lord KNOWS I’ve done my share of fumbling while fielding calls, but I called back again and the same exchange happened! As in, they must be trained to offer this response!?
Her name was Lola… So, my office building has a lobby with cavernous ceilings, such that there is some serious echo/amplification acoustics going on. Like, conversations and sounds travel really well and loudly. The other day as I was leaving, it was quiet but for a person whistling “Copa Cabana.” It was loud. And funny. That is all.
