Working Your Way Up To The Bridge

| Working | August 6, 2013

(It’s my first week on the job, and I’m talking to a few of my coworkers, trying to build some sort of friendship.)

Me: “Oh, do you watch Star Trek?”

Coworker #1: “Oh goodness, not another one.”

Coworker #2: *shaking her head* “You’ll get along with [manager], then.”

(Just at that moment, [manager] leaves for lunch. Before he leaves, he turns to the assistant manager.)

Manager: “Number one, you have the bridge.”

Assistant Manager: “Aye, captain.”

(I can’t stop laughing, while my other coworkers shake their heads. Later on, I need to ask my manager a question about my work.)

Me: “…so, [manager], I believe that’s the correct course of action.”

Manager: “Make it so.”

(I try to stifle my laughter, as I see my coworkers shaking their heads even more. Needless to say, my manager and I have become the best of friends!)
