That's SO 8th grade, man

So the boss surprised me the other day by asking if I had heard of "the shocker". No no, I didn't take his hand like so and show him. I just turned slightly red and asked if that was a trick question. Really, he just learned about this last weekend, and thank God somebody already explained the gesture to him. "I didn't know - I always thought it was a gang sign!" I guess he figures if it's something silly and immature, I must know about it, and well - that's true for the most part. I'm glad all I had to do was snicker and cover my face to avoid much further discussion.

Coincidentally my boss was mad about my expense report last week and shook his fist at me.

I didn't know what it meant until I was in his office that afternoon and he fisted me.

Aw Dan, that's awful! Especially considering you work for the Lord.
Heh.

at least he didn't tell you he'd been trying it at home and doesn't know where to put the first to fingers.

Nervous Girl said...

Will - hey-ohh! I am thankful for that.
