Before I start, I want to thank DCBlogs for their mention today! Thanks!
Now, on with the show!
So, I have this very nice female coworker (FC) who sits next to me at work. We get along quite well, but it seems that we have a bit of an issue…. we have a breakdown in our communications.
You see, for the 2nd time in 2 weeks FC has said something to me that was definitely not work appropriate. Being the good little politically correct worker bee that I am, I of course gave her a quizzical look, and repeated the question back to her for clarification.
FC: Hey, do you want a quickie?
Me: Did you just ask me if I wanted a quickie?
FC: No! I asked you if you wanted a cookie.
FC: Are you a prude?
Me: Uhh…… did you just ask me if I’m a prude?
FC: No. I asked you if you were approved. For your PTO.
Me: Oh… uh. Yeah. Thanks. Ha ha. Sorry about that. At least I didn’t ask you if you wanted a quickie this time.
So, what have I learned out of all of this? I’ve learned to just nod yes whenever FC talks to me and do my best not to act like the complete pervert I am….. well, at least at work.
