So… I go into the meeting and this guy, out of the blue, asks me: “Why are you not wearing any pants?” I try to ignore him as I make my way to one of the conference room’s chairs, but he repeats the question. I’m normally very polite in this kind of situations; you know how delicate work relationships can be. So I told him: “Well, there are a number of reasons, but I won’t bore you with all of them. Besides, the meeting is about to start”.
I think I had made myself clear in a very professional way, but this guy insisted on getting on my nerve. “Dude! What meeting? This is a diner. You really should be wearing some pants man”. Can you believe this guy? No wonder he was working at a diner… he never attends the meetings. Calmly I said: “Well good sir, if you knew about this important meeting you would realize that me not wearing pants has to do with the demonstration of our newest product: The De-pants-zoneitor.”
I couldn’t have been clearer in my message, but this lunatic just told me: “I’m calling the cops man”. The conversation had reached that point by then, that fatidic moment in which there is no turning back. I had to use my trump card, so I replied: “All right then… you do that…” and BAM! Punch to the face!!!!
HELL YEAH!!!! He had it coming!
It was definitely a tough day at the office.
