COWORKER IN HIS LATE TWENTIES (addressing another coworker): This guy just blew me off and told me he couldn’t make a donation because he’s got jetlag.
What’s jetlag?
ME: *gritting teeth*

I swear to christ, stupidity should be painful

    You ought to have told him that “jet lag” is when the jet is moving faster than he is. You know, like they do. Perhaps then he’d have understood.

    But then, perhaps not LOL

    I’d tell you to use a pun with “jag bolts,” but its a good bet the dunce wouldn’t know what those are either.

    ‘Jag bolts’? Well, if whatever that may be has left me scratching my head, then it would undoubtedly bring that churl of a coworker’s brain to a complete halt. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    PBS and Ms Godwin –
    Damnit Jim, I’m a fundraiser, not a doctor! I mean, a teacher!
    Bollocks, I’ve messed that up. Look, I’ll come in again.

    Damnit Jim, I’m a teacher, not a doctor!
    Gah, forget it. 🙂

    Wolfgang –
    No no, that makes complete sense. Kinda like how ‘IKEA’ is Swedish for ‘I KILL YOU’. 🙂

    I meant “LAG bolts” not “JAG bolts”.
