Fight the power

video
You know how sometimes you have a really aggravating conversation with someone at work?

If it's on the phone, you can roll your eyes or gnash your teeth or, after you hang up, slam the phone a little. Or something along those lines. Not constructive, but it makes you feel a little better.

But if it's in person, you're often just stuck feeling all stabby but being outwardly polite. It's the professional thing to do.

So here's what I was thinking.

Next time someone comes over to my desk and annoys the tar out of me, I'm going to do the following.

As they turn to walk away, I'll hit play on this clip, with the volume way up. And if the turn around, which I think is likely, I can be all, "Oh, my husband just sent me the cutest clip of my baby! Want to see it?"

  4. Ha, that will do the trick. I imagine this could also be shown to Jordan's prom date? He makes the noises with such gusto. So, so cute.

  11. Nice! Do you think he'll learn to raise a cute middle finger and just kind of wave it, so that you can incorporate that at appropriate times? Although...it would be hard to control and by the time he enters kindergarten, the other parents would shun you. The raspberries are great though.
