He-He… Oh, Wait. You’re Serious?

(I work as the admin at a fairly large office. I take care of supply orders, snacks, and stuff like that. The groups within the company are big on birthdays and accomplishments, so I usually buy party stuff for them. Today, I got this request.)

Coworker: “We’ve got three birthdays and two promotions tomorrow, so we want to do a helium balloon drop.”

Me: “Helium balloon… drop?”

Coworker: “Yeah.”

Me: “Okay, I can do one or the other, but not both.”

Coworker: “Why? Is it the money? Just the other day you got lunch for the managers, so I know you have enough!”

Me: “It’s not that; it’s just not physically possible. Helium balloons float. Even if I get them up, they won’t drop when released.”

Coworker: “Then find a way to make them drop!”

Me: *sarcastically* “Okay, I’ll just find a way to defy the laws of physics and gravity.”

Coworker: “Good! Now was that so hard?”
