Stirring up drama in the office

Here's how an IM/email conversation just went. I'm so bad...

IM|coworker: Do you happen to know this information?
IM|Me: No, ask Dan, he would know more.
coworker: okay

email|coworker > Dan : Dear Daniel, do you know this information?

IM|Me: BAD MOVE! You called him Daniel, now you'll never get that information. He HATES that name.
IM|coworker: QUICK! Tell me how to fix it.
IM|Me: He likes being called "Dan The Man"

email|coworker > Dan: I meant, of course, to address the previous message to "Dan The Man"

IM|coworker: How's that?
IM|Me: PERFECT


FYI Dan /HATES/ being called "Dan The Man"

LOL, this should be good.

This is why I use profanity laden nicknames when ever I address anyone at work.

Hey "Fargin Bastage" have you seen my stapler?

Be sure to use that in email too, so they have a permanent record of your joke.

Bad part to my plan is I basically office by myself. There is one other person in this office, but he is gone about half the time, and he is my boss. He taught me the profanity laden nickname technique.

another way....call everyone "bob" (no matter what their real name is)


or, find a "bob" in your office and ask him if he spells it backwards...................or, ask him, "how do you spell your name bob? with 1 "o" or 2?"

When I want people to quit buggin' me I just say this:

I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I'm, I'm quitting, I'm going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they've moved my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were married, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it's not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire...

Give someone a callsheet advising they missed a call during their lunchbreak. On the call sheet have the message and phone number "Please, call Mr. Lyon at (xxx) xxx-xxxx. It is extremely urgent!"

(xxx) xxx-xxxx = The phone number to the local zoo!

We had a guy in the service dept. of a boat dealership I worked at who would leave notes on peoples desks asking them to call Mr. Smith at XXX-XXXX. He would use 911 as the first three numbers.
