getting the joke

So the new guy at work seems to enjoy my humor a bit more than the guys who are used to it.

Examples:

Yesterday, I went onsite to research a reported audio problem We were all skeptical because USERS LIE

But there was something wrong. And this equipment was the new model. And VERY hard to work on. Me, to new guy, over videoconference: “I’ll need your help with this one when we get the replacement part. And bring your swear work dictionary, because Holy Crap!”

A few weeks ago, the department had to eat it’s own cooking. Instead of the usual audio conference for the staff meeting, we were doing it video conference. New guy had to stay in the watch the phones, but said “You should go into the video conference room if you feel presentable.”

Me: “Sure, why not? I’ve picked most of my scabs off”
