Darth Punk’d

23rdSep. × ’09

My boss mentioned that he’ll be holidaying in Thailand for a couple of weeks and in that time he’d like me to take over for him. He looked around, making sure no one was listening, and with a wink and a whisper, he said he’ll show me all I need to know to be a good manager.

I followed him over to the other side of the office and we stopped next to a group of empty cubicles. Then he told me that when he gave the signal I was to turn around and look at Mike, nod in his direction, then look at my shoes and shake my head and say something. I did just that. Then he stared at Mike for a bit, nodded ominously and made the throat-cutting gesture.

All day long Mike has been asking if I’ve heard anything about his performance review. He’s been so helpful too, he even offered to buy me a cup of coffee.

I can’t help but wonder if this is how Anakin Skywalker felt before the helmet.

    MY boss did the same thing. He said to come into his office, little did I know that my ears were full of wax and he said “come inside my orifice.”

    Didn’t get the promotion. Turns out he really DID want me to just come into his office. Man, that was one awkward moment when I tried to go ass to mouth there.
