I'm going to start talking on Wednesdays about things I've seen or heard that have made me stop and ask "WTF?".
As such, I'd also like to have some participation from the readers, and give me your instances where you've had something similar.
This way, we can all have a bit of a release, and a chuckle!
OK here's mine for the day:
Last Friday, while I was doing an inspection, one of my managers was bragging to me about how he's a natural-born "numbers" kind of guy. It just comes natural to be able to quickly and accurately count out items, the time, etc.
This same manager called me at 9am that morning to the inspect one of the trailers.
In the middle of this inspection, I went to lunch with his department, so as not to disrupt their timing and workload.
I finished the inspection at noon.
Once I was done, and let him know, his immediate response was:
"It took you 5 hours to get that done?!?"
Now, I don't know about this, so let's you and I do the math:
I started at 9am.
Lunch was taken at 10am.
I came back from lunch at 11am.
I was done at noon.
So.. 9-10 is one hour, and 11 to 12 is another hour..
Even taking lunch into account, I come up with 3 hours. If you deduct the lunchtime, it's 2.
I don't know about you, but neither of those numbers is 5.. Well, unless you add the two together.
So remind me to NEVER let this man near my taxes, budget, bills, bank statements, time cards....
OK, your turn:
Let me hear what interesting things have made you do a double take this week, and we'll get a good chuckle over it!
