This is a question Stupid Colleagues

Godwin's Lawyer tells us: "I once worked with a lad who believed 'Frankenstein' was based on a true story, and that the book was written by Shirley Bassey." Tell us about your workplace dopes.

Burger King. 1994. "Fiona, the steamers ran out of steam, can you go up to the stock room and bring another couple of boxes down."

She was gone for 45 minutes. Overqualified for that place really.

She turned an obvious wind-up into a 45 minute break, and for this you're implying she wasn't that smart?

I don't get it.

I got the "go to the stores for a tin of tartan paint" thing, and as I had heard about it before, a jolly hour was spent drinking tea in the stores. As soon as I walked in, I pointed out that "the asshole in charge of me has sent me for a tin of tartan paint- I know there is no such thing, you know there is no such thing, as does he. But lets turn it back on THAT asshole, and he can carry on working for an hour whilst you brew up, and I get my fags out. Deal?"

I can never really
understand why people go into Burger King or MacDonalds etc, find that their server isn't blessed with a throbbing intelect, and whine about it.

Last time I looked, MacDonalds weren't recruiting from the Physics department at Edinburgh University.

My colleague and I once got told by our boss to go door-to-dooring in Golders Green (for non-Londoners, the strictest, most orthodox Jewish area of the city) on a Saturday. We gave him the benefit of the doubt for about an hour but it became clear that absolutely no-one was coming to the door that day. So we spent the rest of the day going to Harvester and playing pool in the pub.
