Back (apologies for my handwriting!)
The text of the postcard is
As I’m sure you remember, I’m getting married soon! Leading up to this my fiancé has been good about having us write thank you notes. I like to try and be creative, but I also have a tendency to forget that not everyone finds joking about taking the lovely basket so-and-so got, putting it behind a glass so we have … a basket case living with us! Get it!?
Also sometimes my jokes just aren’t funny.
My friend Juicebox suggested I write a post about classic corporate jokes. Oh how I loathe these. He sits right by me at work and hears when I do my fake laugh over some standard line. But I take part in these. I do the fake laugh, and I say the standard response. It’s like when you get a corporate job you’re going to a Catholic Church service. When the co-worker says “The word of the Lord” you say “Thanks be to God.”
Today’s joke that inspired this conversation was a co-worker coming in and saying, “did you miss me?” To which I replied “who are you again?” Oh so funny. Stop me if I’m too cutting edge here.
The Haircut Joke (read about my favorite response to being asked about a haircut HERE)
“Did you get a hair cut?”
“More than just one!”
The Lunchtime Joke
(Seeing co-workers walking in with food.)
“Oh lunchtime, huh? What’d you bring me?”
The Monday Joke
“How’s it going?”
“Well at least it’s not Monday!”
“Oh ho ho .. HA! Ha ha ha!”
The Any Day but Friday Joke
“Is it Friday yet?”
“Haha! Oh boy, I wish!”
“Hey (random coworker’s name who is nearby), you invent that time machine yet?”
“I’m still working on the printer that never jams that you asked for last week!”
(And then everyone instantaneously explodes out of the sheer stupidity of it all.)
“Working hard? Or hardly working?”
