I know I said in my last post that today's post would be my July book review but I'm a big fat liar who didn't get that book review finished last night, in part because of The Store's latest staff meeting. So instead, I thought I'd share the latest additions to the Staff Meeting Drinking Game I've developed over the years. Just make sure to bring your beverages in innocuous containers (i.e., vodka in a water bottle) because Management doesn't really approve this game... and, as always, please play responsibly! (this means don't really play it. Just do the shots in your mind. It's like the soup thing. It's always a hoot and we don't all die from it (Name! That! Reference!)
Do a shot...
...for every minute the meeting starts late because Management's just not ready yet. (Note: this would've netted participants thirty shots last night.)
...every time during the numbers talk when Management spews out a
bunch of information, squints at the paper she's reading from and then
says, "Never mind. That wasn't right."
...every time Management says, "the company's very excited about this!"
...every time Management gives me a dirty look for being a surly, sarcastic pain in the ass.
...every time Management orders two employees to separate because they
won't stop talking. (NOTE: do TWO shots when I'm not one of those
...every time Management asks "Any questions?" and then gets pissed when someone asks a question.
...every time Management gets pissed because I've just corrected her grammar.
...every time Management counters with, "well, I'm not an English lit person."
...every time Management throws something at me when I counter that with "Proper grammar isn't just for writers any more."
and last, but not least...
...for every minute the meeting runs late.
Well, I'm off. I have an early and long shift at The Store today.
This means I'll be very slow about getting to everyone else's blogs but I will get out there soon. And maybe I'll get my book review up for Wednesday. I know how you're just dying to read it.
Have a great Monday,
