You can't make this stuff up...

Setting: Erin’s office
Participants: Erin; Jimmy (her boss)
Time: 12:35
Setting the scene: Jimmy has come into Erin’s office to help her with a problem on a web program they use that he is very familiar with. They begin discussing that afternoon’s training:

Jimmy: I am so busy today. I have a meeting at 2 that I need to go prep for, and another meeting at 3:50. And then what time is your training?
Erin: Umm, YOUR training is at 4. (
slowly realizes he said he has a meeting at 3:50)... WAIT! Am I giving this training? I thought you were giving it!
Jimmy: I thought you were giving it...
Erin: I don’t know how to do what the training is about yet. You haven’t taught me.
Jimmy: I can’t get out of that meeting today. I’ll email you directions, you might want to see if you can figure it out before the training starts...

Erin (to herself): I. Need. A. Drink.
