funny lunch story from today:
there's a bunch of us who are all unstaffed in the office. most people bring their lunches and go to the cafeteria on the ground floor to eat. i never bring a lunch, but i often go to one of the restaurants close by, get takeout, and go back and join everyone else in the cafe.
anyway, today, one girl asked me if i wanted to leave in a few minutes to go across the street and pick up food (she knows i never have a lunch). so i told her to grab me when she left.
of course, she forgot, and so eventually i found out she had already gone, so i went down, got some food across the street, and went back into the cafe, where everyone was sitting around eating. but she wasn't there.
everyone said she had realized she forgot to get me and felt really badly, so she had gone back up to try to find me. so they told me to act mad and hurt when she came back, just to harass her.
but i blew it. i don't do deadpan well. when she got back, i tried to sound outraged and i'm like "i can't believe that you would do that to me!" but i had a huge grin on my face and was totally cracking up, so the entire table just started dying laughing.
so we all got a good laugh out of it and my forgetful cow-orker didn't feel too bad anymore.
pointless story, and now that i read through it again, it's not really that funny. but we got a kick out of it.
