What exactly are you trying to say?

Most office fridge notes — especially when they pertain to specialty “diet” items like, say, a Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwich — read something like this one (from a cubicle farm in Burbank, California).

Thank you sooo much for your kind consideration. I hope you enjoy it. And decide to join

Not so at Rocky‘s office in Austin, Texas…but office drama is never too hard to find in the shared fridge.

Please take one (or two) -Thanks  Are you saying I'm FAT?

Of course, you don’t even have to be a sentient being to fall into a similar trap.

If you’ve shopped online at Amazon.com lately, you might have noticed that they’ve starting suggesting using a custom “PayPhrase” to speed up express checkout. After placing a recent order, Rosalie in Seattle did a double-take when she saw the phrase Amazon picked for her.

      Steven,

      You might want to compose your sense of humor before you click enter. Your post, unlike Astounder, is not funny and does not contribute anything to the content of this website.

      On the other hand, it did give me an opportunity to be snarky! So my apologies and thanks, Steven: you contributed something after all!

      Yet none of you has even bothered to explain why the original poster makes sense to you. He doesn’t. It’s as simple as that. That is all I was trying to say. No need to fly off the handle and get pedantic with me. I want this site to be the best it can be. People like you are only holding that potential back and ruining this web page for the rest of us. Think about it.

      Steven,
      Easy there big fella. You may have missed the Amazon safe-word note(not technically PA but still funny) thinking it was an advertisement or something. Go back and look. Astounder’s comment make sense to you now? It should.

      Hypothetical scenario- Amazon used Rosalie’s webcam to look at her big (o)(o).

      We can all be a little pedantic here. With your first comment, you may have been a tad guilty of that yourself.

    • #1.7   infant tyrone bang

      Dear Steven,

      Refer to No.’s 1, 8, and 19 for starters.

      Astounder’s riff is ambiguous but it makes plenty of sense to me.
      One of his comment’s implications is that he (could be she, too) has some physical endowment about which he would be embarrassed if it were to be captured digitally by Amazon’s computer’s CheckOut module, after which it might presumably seen by one or more of Amazon’s human employees. Call this the “shy” interpretation if you will.

      Opposite to the “shy” version is the “swaggering” version.
      (I’d say “braggadocio” version, but that might set off a cascade of comments that would only obfuscate this [I hope] elucidation.)
      The “swaggering” version’s kernel contains the idea that Astounder has some endowment (perhaps development) that is so awesome that he fears being stalked by one or more of those same Amazon workers.

      Sure, either of these could fairly be categorized as silly, immature, or even infantile, but boys will be boys (unless they’re girls, the grrls among which are capable of substantial swagger these days). There are many here among us who are in touch with our inner children, even if we have not gotten cynical enough to think that life is but a joke.

      If you think this ship is headed in a sub-optimal directions, you’ll probably have more success if you join the crew, because even though the rudder, if there is one, is on the outside of the vessel, all of the steering machinery is on the inside.

      Edit P.S. If, when you refer to “everyday” humor @#1.7 of the “Inspired” thread, you mean “quotidian” humor, then this may not be the right place for you and “the rest of us”, whoever that might be.

      Infant: using “big” words doesn’t make you sound smart, just desperate. Sorry.

      Matty: there is no reference to a web camera in the original post. Nice try there. You mention poster #8. Well, I have to inform you that reply #1 comes before reply #8. Imagine that! And where are you people getting this secret webcam idea anyway? You just sound paranoid.I’m sick of all this, frankly. You’re destroying this site with your childish antics and unsupported gossip. I wish you would all stop! The rest of us want to continue enjoying the gentle humor here. There really is some good content on this web page nonetheless.

      ps. I do know what braggadocio means.

      there is no reference to a web camera in the original post.
      That’s the point of innovation in #1. (coulda said “nexus”)
      That’s why m-w used the word “hypothetical”. (the showoff !)

      Matty didn’t mention #8. Please √x2 before hitting “Submit”.

      Braggadocio was a reference to some comments on a thread quite a while back that was intended to tickle one or more regulars. (Wasn’t about you.) Actually it should have been “bravado”, but age affects memory…

      “rest of us” “gentle humor”
      Perhaps an email campaign directed at the site’s founder/owner/manager would help your cause. If we start getting emails from that direction asking us to change, maybe some of us will change. More likely one or more of us here would start their own rowdy ‘n’ raunchy site.
      Come to think of it…you could do that now.
      Gee, sometimes a little brainstorming leads to a perfect solution.

      P.S. desperate ? No, I park in a gated, covered, reserved location.

      You really can’t let this one go, can you? It’s pretty hilarious that you’re so convinced of your own mental superiority that you feel compelled to respond to every point I make. I don’t know why you decided to pick on me, but sorry Charlie, you chose the wrong person to get into bed with. You clearly love the sound of your own typing and yet you say nothing of consequence. And still, no one here finds you convincing. You are, in a word, truly an “infant”.

      Well maybe I should start my own web page where only gentle and genuinely funny commentary is allowed. Clearly people like you having nothing better to do than harass well-meaning commenters in the dead of the night. I hate to think what other things you’re doing with yourself sitting in front of a computer at 2am.

      And what’s with the connection between the word “desperate” and parking your car? I would love to find common ground with you, but you’re just too frustrating.

      Steven let Ty into his bed! 8-O

      Can I mention that comment #8 comes 7 hrs, 20 min. before comment #1.1?
      Or would it be wrong of me to read the time stamps?

      The “secret webcam” comes from a little place we like to call “Imaginationland” but, evidently, you don’t have the proper visa to gain entry.

      Steven, try reading the thread to take the measure of the tone of the comments before making one yourself.
      That way you don’t look quite as silly as you probably are in real life. ;-)

      Cathy? Are you reading PAN, or the funny pages?

      No…let me guess! :lol:

      Bottom line is that you were advised to see comments posted before yours and were wrong in assuming that the number of the comment corresponded to the order of the posts.

      Own up to your error when it is pointed out to you or risk looking stupid.
      Saying things like an intelligent person shouldn’t use appropriate words because you think they are “big” doesn’t help your cause among “the rest of us”.

      Well, it’s too late for that this time, because you’ve already made yourself look that way, but take the advice for next time. OK?

      Steven, you can’t win this one. The first poster was, in simple terms, inferring the Rosalie’s randomly generated passphrase was not so random and was in response to what may have been viewed on her webcam.

      Many commenters here enjoy offering snarky comments. They are generally fun to read. They are not usually predisposed to attack unless someone else attacks first. YOU attacked first because you did not understand the first post. “Your post makes no sense and does not contribute to the content of this website. Thank you.”

      You then insulted infant tyrone and matty. If you wanted clarification of the comment, you could have just asked.

      I am now finished responding and will no longer address this subject.

      I’m just wondering two things.

      (1) In reference to the “gentle humor” to be found on PAN and the “childish antics” which are ZOMG! ruining the site: um, are you reading the same site I’m reading and have been reading daily for over two years?

      (2) In reference to all the other people who you cite as also feeling the site is being ruined: would those be the same people who don’t want Shane to park in your spot?

      OK, three things.

      (3) Why you think you know the word pedantic, because there was nothing at all pedantic about wright1′s reply. It was pure snark, and it was fucking delicious.

      But thanks for the laughs you gave me this morning, Steven. You really did contribute to the site! :lol:

      In reverse order, i.e. scrolling up

      WotV…Hopefully you just misinterpreted CB this morning, as verily I say to you (and the rest of us), if CB’s having an “attack” of utter reasonableness, then “… the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

      CB…Don’t know what the Goddess would say, but the Emperor sez:
      “Let all the poisons that lurk in the mud hatch out.”
      Perhaps WE should ask that the “Submit” button replaced by “Post It”.
      “Non serviam” seems to fit our crowd better (altho “Submit” is ironic).

      ‘glo…Thanks for coming to the party, and most of all for #2. I had an idea of tying “the rest of us” to the N.D. parkers, but it was late and my brain was so fuzzy I even missed the riposte opportunity back at “pedantic”.

      Had to clone my hands to harvest the thumbs necessary for y’all.

      Finally, re CB’s #1.11…I engaged on the off chance that Steven was “jinx the minx”, Fekket, or another “girl posing as a boy on the Internet”.
      Then I started to get vibes ala N-N or S-S magnetic poles repelling or the fingers on chalkboard feeling of trying to put “Tab A” into “Tab B”.
      When I finally realized that I was hearing the “gnashing of teeth” rather than the silent workings of a well-adjusted machine, I did what any good shade-tree mechanic would do…I dropped the tranny*.

      Dear Infant:

      I’m glad to see you have your little clan of “followers” but you still haven’t won me over. I made no “error” and stand by my assertion that the webcam joke was pointless and really fell flat. The rest of your comments show the level of education and maturity that abounds here. I am sorry to say that I probably won’t be coming back.

      It’s so easy to be sarcastic when you’re anonymous, but do you really believe you’re making an honest contribution of life? Sarcasm is not humor. It’s plain mean. Take a minute to think on that.

      I have enjoyed visiting this page for the last few weeks and was hoping that it would continue being a place where we could find a nice laugh on our lunch breaks but then the creeping cyncism and message board flaming and profanity that can alert office monitoring programs just got to be too much. I know I’m not alone there. I really think this site could be famous and fun like The Onion, but sadly some people here just can’t but add their two cents, even when those two cents aren’t worth a penny. Well, maybe the owner of this site will read this and have some second thoughts about the open posting policy or about certain members. That is the sort of proactive thinking that would get me back.

      Take care,

      Steven

      ‘glo,
      Your 2nd sentence phrasing had me ready to use PG’s tag line.

      foundations for those new West Bank settlements. Whaaa-sheesh.

      Then I opened my Bible to the Epistle of St. Paul (Allen) to the Booleans, and the answer fairly leapt off the page.
      I think I get it now.
      The answer to question #2 should be “Yes”.
      Since EG is saying (telling us, “the rest of us”, or someone else ? still not 100% on that) “Get a life”, then if we were to get that kind of life, then someone would wind up taking/getting EG’s life (figuratively), setting up
      a cascade of life-switching-around ala musical chairs until we were all trapped in a maelstrom of anxious oppression (because then, of course, nobody would have a life of their own).

      Oh, Gundy – Kirstie Alley is sooooo 5 minutes ago. The current spokesperson is Valerie Bertinelli. Kirstie has apparently decided to embrace her plus-sizehood and has a new reality show called “Kirstie’s Big Life” or some such. “Guy’s Big Bite” was already taken.

      They say that you can never be too rich or too thin which is, apparently, only 1/2 true. I never thought that I’d say this but she’s TOO THIN to keep her spokesperson job. Unfortunately, she’s passed the baton to Jason Alexander who annoys me to no end. I wonder if his thin self will be less obnoxious… any thoughts on this?

      m-w,
      Adam hasn’t been here in a little while.
      His comments were typically very dry/short, but he occasionally posted things that were, while still on the short side, quite entertainingly quirky.

      I suspect oi! found the referenced comments to be similar to Adam’s short/dry ones, although I have found a number of your other comments to be similar to his quirky ones. Not a bad mix.

    Based on nearly 20 years worth of workplace observation I am quite comfortable in offering up the assumption that the person who wrote this note is one of those people who is always starting a diet. That Jenny Craig meal probably sat in the freezer for two months while Thunder Thighs put off her start date in favor of heading over to Olive Garden for their soup, salad and breadsticks glutton-fest. Of course you know damned well that breadsticks sustained the most damage in the melee.

    The person who took this meal was probably the poor sap who got stuck covering the phones while the Beefy Biddy Brigade regularly took an extra 20 or 30 minutes to make sure they ‘got their money’s worth’ out of the all you can eat deal.

    This “theft” probably wasn’t even intentional as the person who took the meal probably assumed, because it had been in the freezer for such a long time, that the person who put it there had long since left the company.

    PS:
