I nearly got fired at work today...
Picture the scene, word got around that there was only a few granules of coffee left in the kitchen!!! Panic sets in
I run towards the coffee drop, and spy fellow workmates battling with that scum clan called Tech-support!!!
Each side hoping that they can down anyone returning from the coffee drop so that they can pinch the coffee out of their mug.
It get's pretty frantic...
Then I spy a hole in the melee, I sprint through, get into the kitchen and then stand in front of the door, blocking it from those Tech-support scummers
Our coffee was saved - job well done I thought...
But no... the league er, I mean office admin happened to be informed of this tactic, and since Tech-support hadn't thought of it first, I was ordered to see him in his office...
Closing the door he growled at me and asked what I thought I was doing blocking the door.
I pointed out that it was a skillful tactic, unlike Tech-support who sneakily threw their coffee out of the window so no-one else could get it.
The lea.. er office admin asked me what the hell I was on about, then had the cheek to say that we were the ones throwing coffee around the place!!!!
I asked him if he had any screen shots for proof, to which he retorted "What the f*ck are you on about looney? you on drugs in work time again?"
"A cover-up to hide the real coffee-throwing culprits..." I thought but decided to say nothing.
Suddenly the rumour spread that the entire tech-support team where leaving to work with a company over the road...
We all pretended to be saddened by this, but while mumbling "c-ya then, close the door on the way out" under our breaths - not too loud though in case we became victims of the wrath of the office admin (who also works for tech-support but supposedly that doesn't cloud his judgement what so ever...)
Eventually the end of the day came and we all left hoping that a new morning will bring fresh coffee and maybe a few people being given fresh roles (ham and cheese for me please)...
Only time will tell
For anyone who has had a charisma bypass:
THIS IS CHEEKY HUMOUR please try not to take offence
