Everyday I receive an email from dailycandy.com. Some days are fun + are relevent to me, other days, not so much. You can sign up easily to receive their emails. Some days they highlight a certain company, product or restaurant. Other emails, like the one below, make me laugh.
Piece of Work
The office has a language all its own. Steal a commiserating look at Jim, then communicate using DailyCandy’s latest lexicon.
n. The fear that you will be punished for your inappropriate work expenses. (Suzie tried to expense a bikini wax. She’s in total accounting terror.)
n. What after-work drinks actually feel like.
adj. Used to describe someone so attractive that his/her hotness is not diminished by the wearing of a dorky Bluetooth earpiece.
n. When your boss makes you complete a ridiculous task that takes an insane amount of time and will never be useful to anyone.
n. The incredible, physics-defying manner in which time slows down during a conference call.
n. Someone who is constantly failing upward and benefiting outrageously from his/her apparent failures.
n. A delivery person who inevitably arrives while you’re in the bathroom.
n. The pesky e-mails that hit everyone and have nothing to do with the assignments, updates, or announcements.
n. The queasy feeling one gets when someone really stupid gets promoted. (Rob’s such a kiss up. His golden paratrooping gives me promotion sickness.)
n. E-mail incontinence; the inability to stop hitting Reply to All.
super casual Friday
n. The act of coming to work on Friday wearing the same outfit as Thursday, minus cardigan and watch, which were mysteriously left somewhere. (When sending a messenger to pick them up, they arrive in a plastic bag sans note.)
