Phone Books

A co-worker has a local yellow pages phone book on top of the cabinet that sits over his cube. I opened it to the "Entertainers" section and left it on top of that cabinet. In our fair city, Entertainers is equivalent to Escorts, which is equivalent to... well, you get the idea.

The book is now at his eye level, but higher than eye level for most of the department. I will keep an eye out to see how long it stays open to that page.

Oh, now I'm going to try that in the departmental lounge.

Of course, I'll open it to "colon-cleansing clinics..."

Crud. Total time of book being open was about 18 hours, but in business hours, it was only about 4.

Figured it would be fairly quick hehe, though that was a pretty good one.

Wha--? A phone book? How prehistoric?!

The computer was down last week and my 17 year old needed a number and I handed her the yellow pages and the honors student didn't know how to use them.

Say-- what is your count down for?

Tea,

The countdown is days until the White House is occupied by different people. I choose to be subtle rather than ranting. More flies with honey, and all that sort of thing.

Tea,

My 13-year-old son claimed he didn't know how to use a dictionary. I made him sing his A-B-C's to me while he was looking up the word. He eventually admitted that he did know how to look up words.
