Phone: *ring*
Me: Yes?
Boss: I'm having trouble finding this item you wanted to order from Office Depot.
Me: ORLY?
Boss: You wrote down 'desk ponies - 1 box assorted.'
Me: *giggle*
Boss: What exactly is that?
Me: Well. You know. I thought an assortment of full sized ponies would be too large for the office.
Boss: The number doesn't work.
Me: And full sized pony poop wouldn't be so easy to clean up. So. Desk ponies.
Boss: *silence*
Me: Um. So. Never mind on that order.











(...I'm really not sure she caught on.)

(OTOH, if I get fired for trying to order desk ponies, that shit is BRAGGING rights.)

There was a conversation between me, my Overlady, and two layers of management that went about like this:

Grandmanager: Meeting time yay!
Overlady: We need cocktails.
Manager: I'll allow it.
Me, contemplatively: I don't think Office Depot stocks roosters.
Manager, Overlady: HUH!?
Me: Tailfeathers.
Manager, Overlady: *HUH!?*
Me: For the cock-tails
Overlady: *facepalm* I see I'm going to have to be very careful what I wish for.

next interview:

Them: so... why were you fired from your last job?
You: I tried to order desk ponies!

...and that is when you (and they) immediately know whether or not you will fit in with their organization. LOL
