Yeah, so, this is an actual email exchange between me and my office buddy Paul after HR sent out the following email:
HR: Please do not park in the spot reserved for our handicapped customers. We receive ongoing complaints from our customers who need that spot that it is blocked. We have a few employees who continue to ignore this message (you know who you are) so, please, consider this a final request and … DO NOT PARK IN THE HANDICAPPED PARKING SPOT – EVER!
I forward the email to Paul and say, “Paul, you’ve been busted!”
Paul: HA I almost said the same thing to you, but in the name of good taste, I did not. DOH!
Me: You don’t have good taste, Paul. Don’t use company email to spread your lies.
Paul: OK, true … I have CLEARLY demonstrated my lack of taste AND CLASS by associating with the likes of you, Sonia! HAHA – BURN!
Me: You wish, stupid. [My buddy Andrew, aka Gordo, once told me that “You wish, stupid” was the ultimate comeback. I often test his theory.]
Paul: Stupid? Now that’s just MEAN 😦 [The ultimate comeback works again!]
Me: I’m sorry, Paul. I’m also sorry that a lack of taste and class won’t get you a handicap spot. HA!
Paul: Why not, it worked for you!
Oh, and my apologies to Jennifer, who was cc’d on the entire back and forth exchange.
And yes, apparently some of my coworkers need to be reminded that they are not handicapped.
