    What Came First, The Pun Or The Egg

    | England, UK | Bizarre/Silly, Coworkers, Language & Words

    (I am talking to some colleagues about a job some of us have been put on.)

    Me: “I hope it doesn’t eat into the weekend.”

    Coworker #1: “I can’t let it do that.”

    Coworker #2: “You have plans?”

    Coworker #1: “Well, it’s a friend’s birthday and we’re doing an Easter Egg hunt. I missed last weekend when she was making the eggs because of work so I can’t miss this weekend as well.”

    Coworker #2: “No, you should definitely go.”

    Me: “It sounds great.”

    Coworker #1: “Yeah. Now all we need is a pun to go with this.”

    (We fall silent for a few seconds.)

    Me: “Well, if you let them cancel this weekend as well, you’ll just be egging them on to cancel all your weekend plans.”

    Coworker #1: “Exactly! This kind of punning ability is why you’re going to go far!”

    It Has Fallen In Shadow

    | San Francisco, CA, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Coworkers, Health & Body

    (At work, we have a mass emailing list to email everyone in our SF office. One day, this email comes through…)

    Subject Line: “Careful going out the [Street Name] door…”

    Body: “There’s a poo hidden in the shadows.”

    An Interesting (Dead)Pool Of Applicants

    | Ottawa, ON, Canada | Bizarre/Silly, Geeks Rule, Politics

    (I work for a non-profit that mainly focuses on advocacy for middle to low income people. We work like a community union and I go out to find members to sign up by knocking in rougher neighbourhoods, going door to door. I should note I am a female in my mid twenties.)

    Me: *knocks on door*

    Male Voice: “I got it!”

    (The door opens and a guy in a Deadpool hoodie that zips up into a mask is towering over me. I’m also a bit of a nerd.)

    Me: “Oh, my god, I love it! Sorry, that was unprofessional, Deadpool. My name is [My Name], and I work for [Non-Profit]. We get people together to fight back and make change. Things we want are safer communities and better wages, but right now we want stricter punishments for bad landlords so we can have healthier homes. What do you think?”

    Deadpool: “Cool.”

    Me: “The city hasn’t been enforcing the by-laws because if they do they don’t get paid and they would have to give the money to the province. We want them to update the by-law because then they would actually have an incentive to do the freaking work. Can I get you to sign in support, Deadpool?”

    Deadpool: “Okay. Do I have to put my real name?”

    Me: “We will not tell your secret identity. We take our member confidentiality seriously.”

    (He didn’t become a full member but he made my night.)

    Don’t Pull Any Punches With God

    | MI, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Coworkers, Religion

    (I have just finished briefly talking to one of my coworkers, who is a bit obnoxious at times. I’m headed back to my station when another coworker leans over to say something to me as I pass by.)

    Coworker: “I’m going to punch him.”

    Me: “Why?”

    Coworker: “I don’t know. I mean, God told me to do it. I have to punch him.”

    Me: “Well… I guess I can’t stand in the way of God.”

    The Family Weather Report

    | Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Coworkers, Movies & TV

    (My coworker is an attorney. He’s walking in from lunch.)

    Coworker: “It looks like it’s going to rain.”

    Me: “Um, say it right, please!”

    Coworker: *as Ollie Williams from Family Guy* “It’s gon’ rain!”

    Me: “That’s better.”
