    Uhh.. I think it's safe to say that UnkleScott talks to appliances and NOT people.

    Not by me anyway..I can't stand the woman so I never want to act like I am concerned about her hokey injuries/illnesses/etc. I did hear her talking to someone on the phone and she said this..(close to verbatim as I can remember) "Yeah. (voice that sounds like she is ill) I don't know what's going on.. it's sore. I guess it's not as bad as what you're going through. I'm just attributing what is happening to me with getting older."

    I about died. Please! Not only do I have to worry about arthritis, grey hair and memory loss..I have to be careful not to break my jaw, or fracturing it or WHATEVER, just cuz I'm yawning!!

    I would stay as far away from her as possible in case what she has is contagious.

    That's funny Mariner, and so true! Zaaam and I always LOVE it when someone calls in sick (flu or something) and for the next week and a half the whole office mysteriously gets it. Cuz it's "going around".

    Ugh, when my office gets sick, its horrible! Everyone's coughing and it doesn't help that customers are sick too and use their checks to blow their noses then give it to you.

    I worked with a girl a while back and she always looked sickly, her skin was so pale Michael Jackson was tanned in comparison, it didn't help she was horrificly skinny and seems real frail, I thought she was the skeleton in the closet. I almost thought the wind was going to blow her away. Then she dressed like she was an 89 year old granny.

    OMG! I sure hope you are REALLY located in Georgia, or I'm in trouble!

    I thought of another woman who was at the old job (but didn't last long--the woman was supposed to transcribe tapes but could never learn how to save a document in Word, so the whole day's work would be lost habitually). She could never settle on how her name was to be pronounced. It was spelled Suzan; we first asked if she said it "Susan" or "Suzanne". At first she said she didn't care. BUT if someone said "Susan", she'd correct them and say "No, it's said Suzanne." Later the same day, if you called her "Suzanne", she'd correct you and say, "No, it's Susan." So we all ended up calling her Susan/Suzanne.

    A long time ago, I had a boss who was on her 5th husband. She'd get me and a secretary to go out & track him and try to meet the woman he was having an affair with to find out what mistress looked like. It was actually pretty fun, but not something I could put on the resume. Unless, of course, I'd gone into divorce law!

Yes, I'm bad.
    Yup you are bad but its allllllllllll good!
