Workplace Wisdom.

Hi there, all you clever folks who figured out the Eskimo

puzzle. I was thinking grandfather myself. I will have to

find another one.

Well today, I got a taxi to our Woolworth’s Marketplace

and got a few things I wanted. My son John picked me up

after he finished work so that was really good. He will

turn 52 on Thursday 8th June. No wonder I am old !!

I asked him how Ashley was and was happy to hear that

they think the tablets he has to take are taking his appetite

away. That was what I was thinking weeks ago, and they are

in the process of changing to a different tablet, but that is

going to take 6 weeks to get him gradually off one and on to

another. These will not be easy weeks for Ash or his mother.

Thank you all for your concern and caring. He is a great kid

only 14 years old and does not need this.

<><><><><><><> Workplace Wisdom <><><><><><><><><>

1. I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day.

Tomorrow is not looking good either.

2. Tell me what you need and I’ll tell you how to get along

without it.

3. Accept that some days you are the pigeon, and some days

the statue.

4. I don’t suffer from stress. I am a carrier.

5. Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their

level, then beat you with experience.

6. A pat on the back is only a few centimeters from a kick

in the ass.

7. Don’t be irreplaceable. If you can’t be replaced, you can’t

be promoted.

8. The more crap you put up with, the more crap you will get.

9. You can go anywhere you like if you look serious and carry

a clipboard.

10. Everything can be filed under ‘miscellanious’.

11. To err is human; to forgive is not our policy.

12. If you are good, you will be assigned all the work. If you

are really good, you will get out of it.


13. If it wasn’t for the last minute, nothing wold get done.

When you don’t know what to do, walk fast and look


14. Needing smeone is like needing a parachute. If he isn’t

there the first time, chances are you wont be needing

him again.

15. I love deadlines. I especially love the whooshing sound as

they go flying by.

<><><><><> Joke of the Day ~~ <><><><><>

Two Scots, Archie and Jock, are sitting in the pub discussing

Jock’s upcoming wedding.

“Ach, it’s all going grand,” says Jock. “I’ve got everything

organised already: the flowers, the church, the cars, the

reception, the rings, the minister, even ma stag night”

Archie nods approvingly.

“Havans, I’ve even bought a kilt to be married in” says Jock.

“A kilt? exclaims Archie. “That’s braw, you’ll look pure smart in

that! And what’s the tartan?” Archie then inquires.

“Och”, says Jock, “I’d imagine she’ll be in white….”

<><><><><><> An easy puzzle tonight. <><><><><><>

Count every “F “ in the following text :




Answer in comments. Goodnight/ morning to all ~~~~



Merle said...

How many "F" s did you count?

Three? Wrong. There are six.
The brain cannot process the word "OF"
Incredible or what?
Anyone who counts all 6 "F"s on first try is a genius. Three is normal and four is quite rare. Cheers, Merle.

Funny joke, Merle. I had seen the puzzle before, so I didn't count again.

Very good!

I especially liked the Workplace Wisdom-#5 AND #6!

Have a good day.


Karen said...

Copying and printing the workplace wisdom and placing it on my cubicle wall. Those were great :-D

Have a wonderful day!

I am sorry to hear about Ashley (your Grandson?). I didn't read about why he needs the medication, but my daughter who is 13 takes medication for ulcerative colitis. I feel for him as I do for her...

rhapsody said...

Great stuff!

Geez, I only saw five...

Happy Birthday to your son, too!

I think I'm a modified #9 - I carry a clipboard and TRY to look serious - I have a hard time with my serious look. :) ec

"Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience."

There's a model to live by Merle.

Janice said...

Hi Merle,

Hahahahah! And I think I saw number 1. on a t-shirt.


Granny said...

I went back three times and on the third time I said duh, look at all those of's.

Six and I didn't cheat by looking here first. First time through I missed scientific as well.

Michelle said...

Must admit i got 6 too, but i am pretty concious of tricks like that, so i look for hidden thingys!!

I am sooooooooooooooo glad to learn Ash will regain his appetite soon. Crossing fingers it will be sooner rather than later :o)

Granny said...

I did a lot of proofreading in my time and that helped.

I'm glad I could fix the color problems on granny. I think you were one of the people who was having problems with it.

It just involved a darker purple and a slightly different green.
