Service with a smile…

I love irony.  Not the Alanis Morissette variety (“it’s like ten-thousand spoons when all you need is a knife…”) which isn’t so much irony and as it is flat-out bad stinkin’ luck.  Better learn how to cut that steak with a soup spoon my friend — NO KNIFE FOR YOU!!  I love the type that really makes you laugh.  Let’s be honest…I’m all about laughing.

Did you just "shush" me??

Did you just "shush" me??

I often find myself running to meetings during my workday.  I’m not sure this has as much to do with people wanting to be productive as it does people wanting to spend quality one-on-one time with webie gal.  I can’t blame them, I do add value to any group.  I’m usually having to wait for the elevator since taking the stairs would put me at risk of a devastating lip injury since I have the perplexing issue of constantly falling UP stairs.  I’m special that way.  I happened to notice there was a new *splyer* hanging near the elevators today.  What is a *splyer*?  It’s the term I use for an annoying “spam-like” flyer that is designed using Microsoft clip art, printed in black  & white (color is awared more points) and stuck to the wall using a piece of tape that is 7 inches longer than it needs to be to get the job done effectively.  Stick with me long enough and you’ll hear unique terms used for all sorts of things I see in life.  I’m the Rachael Ray of design only without my own line of olive oil and dog food.  Apparently the people who inhabit the areas closest to the elevators want us to shut the hell up — but in a nice way, of course.  Otherwise, they wouldn’t have used the “Thank You!” at the bottom.  Point taken.  Spanks for the splyer!

  1. Where is the irony? That someone shushed you? What is their number… I’m calling right now. Don’t they know who you are?


    • While I’ve grown rather accustomed to being told to “shutieeee” I thought it was ironic that the splyer was scowling (check out the “never-been-plucked” eyebrow action) while trying to be polite. You can’t tell someone to “can it” while being polite. There is just no possible way. “Shut up” is rude no matter what color bow you wrap it in.


  2. I’m with Kelsey on this one. I am used to being told to SHHHHHHHH. It comes with being a Dunn.


  3. Hey SSSSSHHHHHHHHHHH — I’m trying to nap here !!!


  4. I REALLY CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHY WE IN THIS FAMILY ARE ALWAYS BEING TOLD TO STFU. I AM REALLY BEGINNING TO TAKE OFFENSE TO THIS.
