Weekly Inappropriate at Work Moment [Aug. 11th, 2009|03:29 pm]
My boss stops me in the hallway and asks me a question, clearly in a hurry. Naturally, I had just grabbed a snack from some samples we'd gotten in, so my mouth was full. But his clear sense of urgency overrode my WASP "don't talk with your mouth full" standards.

So, I said "Sorry, my mouth is full of nuts. But don't worry, they're no one's you know."

Which was grammatically fraught with badness, but full of the funny.

"As long as they're not mine" he said, off to his meeting, blushing.

The man won't know what he's missing.
