ok, our CFO called me this morning to remind me that she needed a video conf set up at 9:30.
I was busy so didnt answer.
Knowing what it was about, I didn't check the voice-mail but headed to the conf room to get it going.
She came running around the corner and said "don't listen to that voice-mail."
Turns out she called me from the bathroom, and without thinking, flushed the toilet while leaving the voice-mail.
She told me this in front of all the women in accounting and everybody had a good laugh about it.
She is currently in a meeting so I went to her computer, set her logon sound to the sound of a toilet flushing, then turned the speakers up loud.
Waiting on reaction now....The only thing that could blow the joke is the other women giggling when she walks by on the way to her office.
She walked into here office, logged in and all over accounting you heard the sound of the toilet flushing. about 1/2 second later you could hear the scream "I'm gonna kill him".
Prank successful and freakin hilarious to have seen.
Treat stressful situations like a dog, if you can't eat it, play with it or screw it, then just piss on it and walk away.
Be careful which toes you step on today, they might be connected to the foot that kicks your butt tomorrow.
Perhaps because some people's definition of being an adult is knowing how not to be puerile or prurient. Knowing how not to be they feel empowered to be so as they are now doing it by choice and under their control thus demonstrating their adulthood.
This is funny to those of similar mind because of the pretense at being 'uncooth' and funny to actual adults aswell because of the ironic demonstration that they haven't really grown up at all. Thus such behaviour generally goes down very well especially at parties and while mixing with friends as everyone can have a laugh, some at the dirty joke and others at those making them and no one can tell which is which.
Somewhere in there is Harry Seldon's equation for the infantalisation of a comfortable wealthy society in preparation for sweeping it away and replacing it with a repressive poor one but I can't find the right place for the curly d

I read this as illustrating that a lot of people are spending a significant part of their days on Facebook, and if they are browsing from a tablet, or phone, I kind of doubt that this has much to do with work …
Perhaps it’s just me, but I still find it hard to imagine that people do their work on tablets and smartphones – so is there anybody here that uses tablets or smartphones to actually do anything?
I have a friend that is after me because I do not have a smart phone. I look at the cost of data plans and figure I can do better things with that money. Of course there are times that it would be nice, but that would likely also mean that I would have to be able to find my reading glasses, and that seems problomatic. I hate having to wear glasses. Sucks getting old.
I actually got mine to show pictures of my son when he was born. Then I realized that checking my email, browsing the web, and using the GPS map were extremely useful. If you've lived without it, then you're doing alright.
I have to admit they are useful, and for all the reasons you mention. However, the cost is for service is high. It is amazing that you cannot get somebody to spend $500 ons something that will last for years, but are not as hesitant to purchase a service at $50 per month.
