@ Work

Reader's Digest (Canada) - - Contents -


I just want to be as tired at bed­time as I am all day at work.

@ENVYDATROPIC I WORK IN A COF­FEE SHOP, and by the end of my shift, I’m some­times trip­ping over my words. Re­cently, when a cus­tomer thanked me, I tried to re­ply with “No prob­lem” at the same time as “That’s yours.” In­stead, I dropped a quar­ter into her hand and said, “That’s your prob­lem.”

DIREN NAIDOO, Burling­ton, Ont. IN­TER­VIEWER: Why should we hire you?

ME: I once pro­nounced “Worces­ter­shire” cor­rectly.

@DAFLOYDSTA SORRY MY ARMPITS are so sweaty; I had to say my name and ti­tle on a con­fer­ence call. @STAP_JR


Ninety-five per cent of my work­day is email­ing peo­ple to see if they got my email.


I just typed to a work con­tact say­ing “I know you are very busty.” I meant to say “busy.” Not sure how I’ll ever re­cover from that one.

@SVROSS2 Are you in need of some pro­fes­sional mo­ti­va­tion? Send us a work anec­dote, and you could re­ceive $50. To sub­mit your sto­ries, visit rd.ca/joke.

“I had to scratch and claw to get to where I am to­day.”
