Work amusement

Some quotes from today, with initials used to protect the guilty.

T: Our teenaged desk monkey
B: The teen librarian
K: Kid volunteer


B: (explaining to a volunteer how to clean a keyboard) And you use the q-tip like this...
K: What happens if I run out of q-tips?
B: Well-
Me: Didn't you explain that that's when he has to use his tongue?
B: That's right! Thank you for reminding me. (to K) If you run out, you use your tongue, okay?
K: ....

T: (talking about copiers while simultaneously shaking his leg crazily)
B: What are you DOING?
T: Oh, uh, trying to-
Me: He has dance fever. He's trying to repress it.
T: (starts shaking his ass)

That was more amusing if you could see him shaking his booty. He's very tall and cute. I think he was trying to fix a crease or something.

*****

Director: You have so many people coming in on Sundays!
B: They come in to see the young'uns.
Me: We're young and cute. What do you expect?

FYI, T and I are the only ones who work Sundays. T is 17, I'm 24 (but apparently look about 18-19), and the next closest person in age to me is B, who is 44. So we are the young ones. Cute is debatable. ^_-

Oh, those wacky laws in the Bible

I never noticed that wearing clothing made of two fabrics is wrong...with the way things are going, I wouldn't be surprised if the damning sin for all mankind isn't war, isn't murder, isn't pride or sloth or all those fun things. It's gonna be that 50/50 cotton-poly blend I've got on right now.

Quote in the comments from here.

All of it amuses me, really. ^_^ And there are so many more examples I can come up with, although my favorite is the one in Leviticus in which the Bible clearly says that if a pregnant woman is hit in the abdomen and it causes her to lose her child, no death has occurred. Hmm... I guess abortion isn't murder according to the Bible, now is it? But selective comprehension seems to be the thing for the crazy ones. Sigh.
