OFFICE SCHOOL

What they don't teach you when you have a spat going at work...

1) Go to the nearest Chinese Buffet.
2) Have the Spring Rolls with Mustard (or Hot and Sour, makes no difference), the steamed Dim-Sum with Hot Oil, Mongolian Beef with Lo-mein Noodle and Subgum Vegetable.
3) When they bring the check ask for an extra Fortune Cookie.
4) Leave at least a 25% Gratuity. (dont get cheap here...this may be key to the equation)
5) Give the extra Fortune Cookie to your workmate.
6) Open them together.
7) Let the Healing begin.

WOW! Maybe I would still have a job if I had tried that with my old boss.

Did you add "in bed" at the end of each of your fortunes? That would have been good for some laughs and a little extra healing.

What a great idea! I think I'll try that next time I get into it with my boss. Hmm, maybe I could put some e coli on his fortune cookie--give the bastard a little tummy ache!

dave...i don't know that this would work with Machinists...I know it would not work with Cooks...but in the Civilized confines of an Office, where a raised voice is deemed a hostile act and a string of 4 letter words considered tantamount to assault, it works pretty well. so far the little bald guy has been good to me.

Barbara, sorry this is a little late, but it has worked for me 3 times this year...i'd have never thopught about it 6 months ago as being something you might employ, but would recommend it to anyonme these days!

Griz, griz, griz...i walk a fine enough line around here sometimes...but what you suggest I could hardly be held accountable for right?

Ha. I read Grizza's comment ..... here at our house we add on the toilet at the end of our fortunes ....

I know - we are all stuck at the developmental age of 5: potty humour.

Great plan I think and creative too ...for a donkey in a submersible .....

my, my, ensign cowboy, what a big fish you have there, my dear ...

Now we MUST hear the story of the spat.
Dve, Dave, Dave- sounds like there needs to be some major healing over at your place.

And order Tie-dye Socks!
I love Chinese food and those almond cookies would make anyone feel better.

I couldn't afford it!

Cute. My workspace conflict-resolution involves a spring-loaded baton and a room with lots of background noise. But you know this already.

steve said...

Citizen! Good to see you.
I really miss dealing with stuff the Old Fashioned way...

I'm thinkin' maybe I could come up with a line of these cookies to sell at Office Depot.
