What are the chances?

That someone would wear clothing the exact same color as the couch at work? After our production meeting, we played a full round of “Where’s The Programmer?” We never did find him.

Speaking of fun stuff at work! …

Have I ever mentioned that we have an allergist’s office across the hall from us? Thus there are patients up and down the hall all the time. For some reason, they think the allergy place is the only establishment in the building, so we often catch them in private conversation or just being downright silly awesome in the hall – like the time I came across the 12 year old with his earbuds in and giving Hendrix a run for his money on the air guitar. Good times, good times.

So, yesterday, Bryan is coming down the hall behind this well-coiffed, petite, corporate-looking lady in a suit who is accompanying her young daughter to the allergist’s. Just as they were approaching the door, the woman paused, told her daughter to “hold on,” and let out the loudest and longest fart – like, ever. And then they happily continued on in to the doctor’s office without a second glance.

I love working here.

    Corporate exhaust requires full system power redirect from legs to buttocks.

    That’s hilarious.

    Also hilarious, that people apparently think that the allergist’s office is some sort of sanctuary from the outside world.

    Hey, it’s Chameleon Man.

    Oh I would have died laughing! I wonder why they are so oblivious to you guys? I mean, who cares about whoever might be in the hallway, but we better spare the allergists office of any farting obviously! Thoroughly entertaining.

    I want to come work for you!

    I love fart stories. I have a friend who saves all of her farts for the end of the day. When she gets in her car, WATCH OUT!

  21. Stacey

    I can’t believe she didn’t look behind her at all!

  22. Loralee Choate

    Maybe if I found an outfit the exact same color of my couch I could get five minutes without anyone asking me a question.


  23. Renaissance Woman

    I still want to know what the kid thought when you caught him rockin out.

  26. Mrs. Chicken

    Sometimes I really miss working, especially at the newspaper. Too funny!

    Sign in your lobby:
    Gas masks must be donned upon entering.

    I laughed so hard at this post, I think I farted a little. But there’s no one here but me, so no damage done.

  28. Alpha DogMa

    So your sure the doctor is an allergist not a GI specialist?
    That’s too funny!

  29. Alex Elliot

    That is hilarious! I would have started laughing.

  30. James

    That explains where the third cushion to that couch went.
