Friday the Dorkteenth...Vote for me!! :)
|OK.....I've been thinking long and hard on this one. I've decided to go with the multi-mini story format, but only a few of them....ummm....because I'm just that cool. Yeah...thats why...yeah!!!|
1) 5-6 years into my last job...we moved from the paper age to the paper age with computers. This evolved for some time and my boss got a brand new laptop...with real sound...and really proud of it. He went to lunch, and left his office open. I...for reasons I'm not sure....thought it would be hilarious to change all of his event beeps and sounds to the audio clip of HAL "I'm sorry Dave....I'm afraid I can't do that". He was less amused than I was apparently...but he lived with it like that for 3 days..;).
I still chuckle every time I remember this story...:)
2) Very early in my career, I spent some time in outside sales. I took this client out for lunch in a small town....the resturant was the local bar. We ate, we drank, we yakked it up...then the bill came. They didn't take credit cards, I didn't have my checkbook, and had woefully less cash in pocket then needed. He wound up paying for our lunch.....and ironically became one of my better customers....:)
3) I used to sell vacuum cleaners door to door...and still think our product kicked Kirbey's ass.
4) Once at camp.....I had to whizz really bad at about 3:30-4am. It was quiet out, we had settled in for bed a couple hours earlier...it was cold out, but I really had to go. I mean..get out and go, or lie to the wife about the mess later go....so anywho...I unzip the side door to the dome tent. I'm stark nekkid and try to get my balance as I crawl out...do my business..turn around and my aunt and some friends clap...and yelll woooohooo!!!!! I stumble and try to balance myself by grabbing the dome tent as I see 4 people sitting around the fire. Well...that room of the dome tent folded inward, and I fell backward...landing spread eagle and giving them a show.....Alchohol was involved in this story...
5) I woke up one morning in a panic because I was running late for work. I had been tardy a few too many times already and didn't want an ass chewing. I sped to work cussing the whole way...only to find out I looked at the clock wrong. I wasn't 5 minutes late....I was 55 minutes early, and the only one in the parking lot. In my infinite wisdom, I figured a half our nap was in order, so I leaned the seat back in my car and got comfy. I woke up an hour later and got an ass chewing for my tardy..:)
6) I once made a sock puppet named "Argyle" so I'd have somebody to talk to when I was chatting online in IRC. Argyle became more popular than me in the room.....:)
7) I have on a couple of occasions tried to impress a date by revealing I authored porn websites.......while I haven't done either in years...it worked more often than you'd think.....lol
I think ya can vote HERE but to be honest....ehhh it was fun anywho..;)
