My new office requires new employees to register for a New Staff Orientation before beginning work. Did that.
I assumed wrong.
Day 3 came around – as in today – I remembered that I don’t have any stamps or checks.
I emailed the parking company:
“May I make the payment in person?”
“If you mail within the 3 days you are all set.”
The company’s answer to my question was so helpful that I drove to their office to thank them in person. And since I was already there, I paid my parking ticket.
But then I remembered past conversations I've had regarding my intelligence...
Me: [joke I think is funny, witty, and smart]
Brother: You’re retarded.
Me: [different joke I think is funny, witty, and smart]
One-Time Lover: You’re retarded.
To be fair, when One-Time Lover said that, he was being endearing. When my bro said it, he meant it.
