Ever feel like- as an adult- you’re different?
I wonder on a daily basis what is wrong with me. Then I realize I’m slightly above average on the IQ scale and I get super annoyed.
I was in a meeting the other day with my boss and a few of my co-workers doing a get-to-know-you exercise.
The exercise was everyone going around the room saying what our warning label would say if we had one. **Completely True Story**
The first person- our boss- said, “mine would say- give me coffee, wait, then speak”
the first of my coworkers said, “yeah mine would say that too”
the next one said, “mine would say give me coffee, wait til I finish the cup, then speak”
the one after that said, “mine would say don’t speak at all until noon”
this sort of exact same message was give with slight variations until it was my turn- 4 or 5 people later. I just assumed that side of the room was just tired because it was 9AM.
So, I said, “my warning label would say… Warning: Can and WILL trip…. on air”
The whole room erupted with laughter like it was the funniest thing they’d ever heard (not so for me cause I was semi serious).
the next 7 or 8 people all said variations of what our boss had said.
By the time it was the last persons time to give their warning label I was still holding out for someone to say ANYTHING different, but he didn’t.
I thought…. wow….. seriously? A simple exercise…. and I’m the only fucker in this room out of at least 13 – 15 people with an original thought? You have got to be kidding me… Where’s Ashton and the camera cause this shit is funny.
Sadly it was no joke.
