back on the boris . . .
new guy, drive-by greeting: hi, [common and deeply hated abbreviation of my real name]
me: hi, new . . . d'oh! DON'T call me [abbreviation]
new guy, tires screeching: god, sorry. actually, i did mean to ask you about that. do you prefer -
me: the usual capsule dissertation. basically: i really really prefer [........]. that being said though, i do realise there are some people who are just born-and-baked short-formers , so if you're one of those people i'm not doctrinaire about it. i'll take  from you if it's really the only way your brain rolls.
him: oh, i'm easy about it. i can call you whatever you like.
me: really? 'boris'?
him: actually, if it was up to me, everyone would be called boris. it would just simplify things so darn much.
Started a new job today.
Chef: "Yeah. Uh-huh." Quoting me as I was saying those words a lot.
Me: "I say those things a lot because I am actually socially awkward, and don't know how to respond or what to say to you right now, so I want to affirm you or agree or show I understand, but I'm not sure how to do that any other way."
Chef: *stares at me blankly and then laughs*
I was serious....
The other day in the morning:
husband: You've got to get up.
Me: SQUIRREL SLEEP!
husband texts me: Did you go swimming or are you a sleepy squirrel?
in the evening:
Me: Hehehehe, your text was so funny "are you a sleepy squirrel?"
husband: You said something like that in the morning?
Me: I did?..............Oh yeah, I said "SQUIRREL SLEEP!"
Husband: Wake up!
Me: KITTY SLEEP. *grunt* Kitty is sleeping in its little basket. :) :) :) *rolls over*
Help, I say silly things like that, am I a real INTJ? ;)
off-site functional manager, from halfway across the country: thou shalt all *yada yada* henceforth
off-site technical manager, from other side of the continent: and now hear this. starting today, we want all of you to *blargle argh blargh* every three hours
off-site team lead, from city i can't even pronounce: guys, DON'T FORGET to *yada blargle yargh blard* like we told you to. none of you are doing this!
onsite fellow hired gun in qa: what is it with all this nonsense they want us to do?
fellow hired gun: one thing i'll tell you for free, there is way way too much management here. way too many guys just sitting around and collecting statistics.
me: true nuff. i just work here.
fhg: but these spreadsheets! and that idea that every time *something* they want us to *something* . . . that's just bush-league.
me: sure. but it's what happens when there's no-one on site. you start getting this micro-management-by-remote obsession.
fhg: yeah, i guess . . . *broods. sudden new twitch of annoyance* but the way that they're going about it! i mean, isn't that what tfs and mtm and all that are supposed to do? what is it with these guys? spreadsheets. i mean, don't they know how to run metrics tools?
me: meh. i just figure every time we get a sudden spate of hysterical scolding emails from [qa lead Somewhere Else], someone came around to his desk out there in Somewhere Else and scared the shit out of him.
fhg: *thinks; sudden snort. starts giving off a spate of little isolated giggles through his nose like a broken percolator* yeah, i think you're right. *snortle snort* that's really funny actually.
friend, with very very abusive, childish colleague (male): . . . and Dustbin, who is apparently on a two-year menstrual cycle . . .
Cousin recently got married, which prompted this conversation:
Me: how many bridesmaids do you think you'd have at your wedding? I think it would just be you (ISTJ sis), INFP sis, and ESTP friend.
ISTJ sis: I think I'd do sisters only. If I add ESTP friend, then I have at least 3 other friends to consider and I don't want to deal with the BS where you have to decide which friends are as important or more important than others. So, sisters only. That is more traditional I think.
Me: yeah, that's true about deciding between friends. I think ESTP friend is my only friend even close enough to consider but sisters only would make it simple.
ISTJ sis: the only thing that would suck is that you'd be the maid of honor and you will be *really* bad at planning the bachelorette party and bridal shower.
Me: *scoff* it would get planned, might not be fun, but it would happen! Geez. Well, I could delegate the details to ESTP friend. She could be the secret maid of honor.
ISTJ: all of the responsibility, none of the credit...sounds good!
me: she could have an honorable mention in the printed program haha
*convo dies down a minute*
Me: you know if ESTP plans your bachelorette party, she's going to get you 5 midget strippers who cover you in silly string or something.
Sis: *snortlaugh* oh, god, it's so true...it's so true.
Also: speaking of midget-strippers, I am baking gluten-free sugar cookies shaped like various primary and secondary sexual organs for my sister's bachelorette party. And providing amusing decorative options, so that they will be customizable. This is my contribution to the wedding.
