absolutcalm -- What job doesn't get tips, but definitely deserves them (BTW, Don't Tip Barristas, unless they're hot. They're already paid REAL wages.)?
A hardworking receptionist in a busy office.
Wedding photographers who know better than to take mid-chew candids during dinner.
An oral hygienist who can pull off a cleaning without inducing an audible cry of pain.
The person who does the bill-money wrangling when you go out to eat with a group of friends.
twicketface -- Best ingredients for an omelette? Ladies and gentlemen, OMELETTE BAR!!!!
mac -- What will 2009's buzzword be?
Obasaturation: the feelings of fatigue and exhaustion resulting from overexposure to the Obama family after having been inundated with their visages on every magazine cover currently in publication.
Dispressment: Searching for evidence of economic distress wherever possible in order to justify the lack of actual evidence witnessed to the constant reporting of such evidence from the media.
Local Cooling: the uncharacteristically cold-weather phenomenon that occurs during every scheduled lecture on Global Warming.
Facebook Lift: the act of removing unflattering pictures and comments on one's WEB2.0 networking site after a superior co-worker or stodgy family member friends you.
Dear 2008 buzzword, please die:
Green/to go green.
eideteker -- Who are all you people?
Click on that little head next to their name to find out. It's not like facebook where you actually have to know the person to learn about them.
We are the decimated remains of a once formidable poll-participating group.
We're the work-slackers that all those careerbuilder articles are written about.
We've been together here for about 4 years now. Way to get to know your peers, pal.
haveyaseenlucky -- Is there ANY way that you go wrong by adding monkeys to a TV commercial? Honestly, there is none. Monkeys and talking, vomiting babies. What monkey commercial wouldn't encourage you to use/buy the product?
The monkey-run auto shop.
Monkey maid service.
Which of the following companies needs to put out a monkey commercial, STAT?
Verizon. At least they can be honest.
Harts flea and tick collars.
Patagonia climbing gear.
pooplord -- Why do they try to make business school students do math?
Since unlike high school, you are attending voluntarily, the experience feels so vastly different that many may not realize they're in school. The agony of math class provides a familiar reference.
To make sure you really, really want that business degree.
To perpetuate the myth that there's some level of math that a computer or calculator can't just do for you.
To inflate the perceived value of your education. If you only took the classes that were actually relevant and necessary, it might be hard to justify spending tens of thousands of dollars on it.
renob423 -- when i leave work the security gaurd is playing with cards that have dragons and wizards and shit on them, is he a dungeon master? does he have a d20? & will you go see the new friday the 13th next weekend? will it be as good as the new my bloody valentin
Possibly, but not assuredly.
As good? Definitely.
A guy in the building is wearing a sweatshirt that says FIGHTER on the back in big letters across his shoulders. I know it's casual Friday and all, but what sort of message is he trying to send here?
I may seem like a wilting pussywillow to you, what with all the supplicating and ass-kissing, but I swear, once I'm out of this building, I'm tough stuff, man.
Today? Not the day.
I don't give a fuck about your rules or your "appropriate workplace attire". I'm not going to be held down by that shit...on Fridays.
Why, I'd love to attend an anger management seminar.
