I’ve Got A Bad Feline About This

| Working | November 18, 2013

(The entire floor is on a training conference call, so all our phones are muted. One manager is multi-tasking: he’s listening to the call, researching a customer’s issue, instant-messaging someone in tech support, and sending out a mass email on the status of today’s sales contest. The following all happens through email.)

Manager: “If we get four more [Product] sales, we’ll draw another name. Winner gets to pop a balloon to find out their prize. Come on guys! I have a feline we can get those sales before noon!”

Me: “I have a feline too, but she doesn’t care about balloons unless she’s chasing them.”

Coworker #1: “Felines… nothing more than feeee-lines!”

Coworker #2: “And IIIIII’m hooked on a feline…”

Coworker #3: “Can you feline the love tonight!”

Coworker #4: “Is this what they call ‘fuzzy logic?'”

Manager: “This is what I get for multi-tasking.”

Coworker #5: *emails us a “Grumpy Cat” pic w/caption* “I had a feline once. It was terrible.”

(By this point we were all giggling at our desks so much, I don’t think anyone even heard the training call.)
