Everyone here is incredibly Antimustachian. I work in IT, but I work for a company in a blue collar industry, so most of the guys smoke or dip, they buy a lot from the vending machines, own a lot of guns, drive large pickups and SUVs, etc.. They do seem to bring lunch pretty consistently, which is excellent. Thing is, I don't converse with most of them, since they're always going to job sites whereas I'm stuck in an office, so I don't have any great stories.
Except from our warehouse worker.
He's a great guy, but he's in poor health. Very obese, drinks a couple sodas every day, only gets exercise walking between his desk and the forklift. We were discussing my biking-to-work habit (yes, I'm probably the only one who has ever done this in the 50 years this company has existed) and how this area is incredibly bike-unfriendly. He mentioned that he only lives a mile away, and back when he lost his license, he would sometimes walk it. I said "oh yeah, that's such an easy walk and an even easier bike ride, I don't think I'd ever drive if I lived that close" and he laughed and said "bike? I don't think they make a tire big enough to hold me!" Guess he'll keep commuting that mile in his V8 F150.
Now to contribute to the foam:
I think I had to go back 2 years to find someone in MS/HS with my name (granted small school), but at my current company of 35 employees, 5 of us are Ryans.
My company employs ~70 people. There are at least four Ryans. What is up with that name....
If a man gets offended by being addressed in a group as "ladies," he can grow a thicker skin
or fuck off. MOD NOTE: This topic has pretty much exhausted itself and i'm tired of getting reports. Time to drop it folks.
The reverse also applies.
The irony was not lost on me.
