Someone just said “I’m sorry to press, but I have a bias to action”. I’ve taken a leaf out of his book and restarted this thread.
“I’m sure Beth’s perfectly aware of where testicles come from”
I don’t understand “black lives matter”. To me, all lives matter!
Can’t remember the exact quote, but yesterday one of my colleagues explained to me at length how ordering a takeaway for dinner is “so much easier than cooking it yourself”.
Colleague A: "What’s a canteloupe?"
Colleague B: “It’s like a deer, isn’t it?”
You, know, I’ve heard those exact same words from a (white, British) colleague of mine.
It was an incredibly frustrating conversation. “But it’s not all people that are getting shot, while unarmed, by police.” was met by “But I saw on the news the other week that a white guy got shot by the police in Philly!”
“it’s a latté. I’m a bit of a homosexual when it comes to coffee choices.”
“I don’t know why you wouldn’t vote for Trump. They need to shake things up a bit over there”
“Are they actual clowns or just people dressed up?”
used to work with this girl who i thought was cool until i got a cappuccino and she goes THAT’S A BIT GAY, ISN’T IT?
Colleague A: "How do you spell guillotine?"
Colleague B: "G-I-L-L-U - no that’s not right… That’s the laminating machine"
A: “Is that not what a guillotine is?”
Fucking hell. This is the same person who thought a cantaloupe was a type of deer a few weeks ago. Best of all, she gets left in charge when the transport manager is on holiday
I’m assuming this means that there are people out there that will describe any coffee which isn’t a “normal” coffee as gay. Unbelievable.
“Who was that woman who got robbed recently, Kim Kurdistan?”
“Patents, eh? You must get a lot of bother from those BLOODY CHINESE!”
(technically an external contractor, but fucking hell)
“We need to be more productive, start using our nonces a bit more”
Didn’t know you worked at the BBC, pal.
This is a couple of years ago, but we were in a big meeting discussing international recruitment strategies and someone piped up:
“Yeah, I had a dream the other night about the Chinese. They were all ants and they’d taken over the world and made it communist”.
