Dialing the Phone with a Pencil - Early Signs that You Were Gay
We've done hundreds of "early signs" threads but that was the funniest ever.
WHET the thread about the fatties selling overpriced baked goods to raise money so they could adopt a baby?
r13, Cubefrau Olympics was about five years ago, but the first time I heard the term "Cubefrau" so never forgot it.
Here is a summary I saved:
The Pot Luck Stampede, followed by:
Lengthy, Detailed Complaining Session about what others brought to Potluck
Recitation of Last Night's Reality-TV show, referring to people on these shows by first name.
Making the Biggest Pile of Untouched Work, to Be Shoved to the Corner or Side of Desk. Need something in there? You'll never get it.
Creation of the Biggest Pile of Empty Food and Drink Cartons (Located on or near Pile of Untouched Work).
Staining of the Most Files (From Food and Drink)
Marathon Hissing and Paranoia Fits over the new, unknown, lone intelligent sentient being.
Sprint-Waddle for the Leftover Sandwiches and Muffins.
Who Can Repeat the Most From The Mindless Boardroom Meeting, Making themselves feel Very Managerial and Wise
Most Complaints about Fire Drill
Most Food Bought and Consumed During Fire Drill
Competitive Dieting. Who can claim the most pounds lost without actually changing her appearence?
Interoffice mail terrorism, wherein all urgent documents are routed through the same people who handle the junk mail and take at least a day to get across the hall.
CYA-mail championships, wherein blame for project failure is spread to people who never heard of the project, usually supported by an unanswered non sequitur email. Bonus points if the blame can pushed to temp employees who weren't around when the project was undertaken.
Sneakiest campaign to convince everyone the office has poor morale and needs a general "bitch" session. Bonus points if you can get management to accept anonymous feedback and then flood them with personal insults.
Ceilling tile shower. Award goes to cube drone who can make the biggest dust shower by poking the acoustical ceiling tiles. Bonus is you get some in the boss's coffee.
Claire and the Bread Pudding.
A very well-told thread about a very annoying, dour tagalong named Claire.
I second, R18. I LOVE that I found the archive and can read it again and again.
I loved the Baked potato bar thread too
R19, what is this Datalounge Archive of which you speak?
