Humor in the work place (Part Deux)

Here are some more mixed up metphors. You ,ay not believe it, but people actually said these things and I wrote them down. Sometimes they are so mixed up I had to repeat them several times to myself to get all the words in the right order. Most of the time the people in question moaned as they knew that had been caught saying something that just didn’t make sense.

If you listen closely in your daily meetings or even outside of work, you will develop and ear for picking these things out of the noise. Most of the time our brain fills in the correct information and we miss something really funny. People who don’t speak English as their first language are good sources for material and also good sources for detecting that someone else said something funny. Their brains can’t fill in the proper words because they don’t know what the proper words are.

Here is the end of my list. I haven’t been keeping track for a while, but maybe it’s time to start again 😉
