Just Another Day at the Office

So there I am sitting at my desk, watching down a compile of a show I’m making.  Hear something. Ring the edit suite.

Bloke on my Team:  ‘Hello?’

Me: ‘No, no, no, no, no! You cannot adds farts!’

Bloke on my Team: ‘What farts?’

Me: ‘The two farts you added!’

Bloke on my Team: ‘What farts?’

Me: ‘ The one at 02:14 and the one at 04:05! ’

Bloke on my Team : ‘Who was farting? What are you talking about?’

Me: ‘You two have the collective mental age of 14!’ (Their collective age is about eighty).

Bloke on my Team: ‘But farts are funny!’

Me: ‘Not if you’re me when I’m putting this show in front of X (important person), X (another important person) and Y ( another important person who it’s a wise idea not to piss off). 

Bloke on my Team (a sigh so heavy with emotional disappointment that you would be forgiven for thinking that I’d just fired him). ‘Oh, okay, we’ll take them out’.

Me: ‘Thank you’.

Bloke on my Team: ‘But you never know, we might have already added some more in other places.

Me: I would print my response but it’s not that polite. So I’ll show you a picture  instead.

I guess Fart Police is part of the "other duties as assigned" on your job description.

Tinman said...

Don't worry, they probably didn't add any others.

Well, possibly not.

Nah, almost certainly not.

I'm not helping, am I?

If it's not there, I'm going to get it added!

No, you're not Tinman! *sighs as she realises she's not going to have to add a 'Fart Pass' to her viewing list!*

I'm not sure what made me laugh more: the dialogue, or the picture... two laughs in one post. Magic!

Oh, pleased to have done so Stephanie!
