workin' it

my typical working day consists of drinking coffee, checking my email every four seconds for job offers, avoiding car insurance websites, and saying over and over "no i do not know where that tape is. no i don't know where that one is either. yes, feel free to look for yourself. yes, you're right, someone who worked here before me must have taken it as a souvenier. oh, you don't think it spontaneously combusted? you don't think it was very cute when i said that? oh so sorry. i didn't realize tape stock was such a sensative issue." honestly, there must be some disgruntled employee sitting around watching tv in their underwear with a full set of BetaSP master tapes serving as cheap substitutes for plates and coasters. not that i blame this person. i am close to doing the same. it would be oh so satisfying to say, "yes, i know exactly where that tape is. it's propping up the loose leg of my patio table. jerk."

HAHA. I don't understand why more people don't think sarcasm is funny, especially when it is directed at them. You should send notes to the CEO saying things like, "I am holding the entire tape vault hostage until you legally acknowledge that it WAS VERY CUTE WHEN I SAID THAT THING ABOUT SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION."
