No Belly Or Liver Laughs

, , , , | Working | January 8, 2019

(There’s one guy in my office who doesn’t seem to have a filter between his brain and his mouth. He continually goes out of his way to make stupid puns and lame jokes, apparently in a misplaced belief that this makes him hilarious. Nobody ever laughs. A coworker comes by to let us know he is going to be out for a day.)

Coworker: “I’m taking next Tuesday off. I have to take my wife to an appointment.”

Joker: “Oooh! Taking her out for drinks and dancing, eh? Eh?”

(Our coworker just stares at him for a moment.)

Coworker: *tightly* “No, we’re going to the oncologist to talk about her liver cancer.”

(This was news to the rest of us, too — we didn’t know he was dealing with that! — but “an appointment” is almost never a fun time!)
