Big Man



  • Hey guys, I have a real doozy for you.  I work with 911 and police and fire agencies all across the country.  You'd think that more than a few chiefs would be full of self-importance, but I swear in the 12 years I've been doing this work I've never met anybody like THIS guy.  He's the director of an agency in a small but well-known U.S. city.  Every time I talk to him, whether face to face or in a conference call, he informs me (actually everybody) that there's someone important in town today so he will have to step out from time to time.  Or he will have to attend a meeting with the VIP so can't be here to assist with whatever we're doing.  Every.  Single.  Time.  He can't just say "I have another meeting"; no, he loves to drop names.  For example, today President Bush was in town.  I really need to start writing down the VIP's that he's supposedly had to do something about.  If you were gullible enough, you'd honestly think he was the U.S. ambassador to the entire planet.

    In today's conference call that was interrupted by Bush's visit, I had two thoughts, because honestly, each time he wasn't gone for more than 5 minutes:

    1.  He's actually just pretending to step out to see if the rest of us talk bad about him.

    2.  He's actually just putting the phone on hold to watch some tv coverage of a Bush press conference.

    Based upon Bush's speech today, does this city rhyme with "Bland Vapids"?  And it's probably #1, mixed with a pathetic desire to seem important.

    Ha!  Yep, Bland Vapids is correct.  And you're right.  It's obviously trying to seem important, VERY very pathetic though.  If any of you are Futurama fans, he's a worse beaurocrat than Hermes.  He insists on numerous recaps in meetings and causes any meeting to last 4 times longer than it really needs to be.  The worst one ever was a meeting where we really did have lots of important things to hash out.  But after every other discussion point, he had to recap what we'd talked about so far.  And after he'd returned from the several times he had to step out to meet with the King of Jordan or whoever, he made us recap again.  The process was very much like that WTF entry from yesterday about having to read every character before you could read every line before you could find and read the line you wanted....  the closer we got to the end of the meeting, the longer it took.
     



  • I was a tiny bit offended by the boob post but decided to just let it go.  Tster, I do have to admit you're my hero!  That was the best possible response!  LOL



  • I do what I can :)  

    some people just don't understand how to interact with the opposite sex I suppose.

    You mean this T-shirt with "wanna fuck?" I wear to bars is in bad taste?



  • The guy in the photo in post 119307 above saw your T-shirt and said "yes"...

    It's rude to say this because you're all take and no give.

    We need to see cock first. Or keyboard on your head.
