Friday Wisdom: Work

As a young man I wanted to get into banking, but I kept losing interest.

Nothing ruins a Friday more than realizing it’s Thursday.

I’m a great multitasker – I can be unproductive, waste time, and procrastinate all at the same time.

Team work is great – it gives you someone else to blame.

My boss said, “Who’s stupid, you or me?”  I replied, “It’s well known that you don’t hire stupid people.”

I went to work at a paper company, but it folded.

My job is secure.  No one else will take it.

I was studying to become a train engineer, but I got sidetracked …

At one point I was studying to be a historian, but then I realized there’s no future in it.

  2. Good laughs! I particularly liked “It’s well-known that you don’t hire stupid people”. Subtle, but, oooh, burn!

    LOL… all good ones! Here’s another for your collection. “I think it’s unfair that I got fired from my job at the calendar company. All I did was take a couple days off.” Thanks for the laughs.

  7. Thank you, Andrew. These all gave me a laugh. I especially liked the one about the multi-tasker. 😉 I read it to my partner who is always saying he finds lots of ways to waste time. LOL It hit close to home! Have a great weekend!
