A Swede by Any Other Name

» 02 May 2007 » In Funny, Work »

The new guy in our group at work has been here less than a couple of months. Today he came up to my manager and the following conversation ensued:

New guy: Did L*** quit?? [L*** is a another co-worker]
Manager: No, why?
New guy: His cube is empty.
Manager: Oh, he works remotely from Colorado most of the time.
New guy: Huh.. The map on the sheet posted outside the aisle says someone else is in his cube… Crazy Swede?

Damn, I’m going to miss this place..

    Funny, but confusing.
    Is l*** Swedish? Is he crazy?
    Is New Guy suspecting the world will soon be over taken by robots disguised as crazy Swedes? If so should we change our disguises to friendly Norwegians?

    L*** is indeed Swedish. As for crazy, well, that’s his own opinion.

    R*** told us this story on Thursday, and we both started laughing hysterically. Poor new guy!

    I think the admin of this web page is actually working hard in favor of his web page, for the reason that here every information is quality based stuff.
