You wish, stupid


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.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. Ah, parking-related arguments. I miss city life. Out here where 3 cars at a stop sign is called traffic, we mostly argue about how much Jesus hates the gays.

    Just a little? Or a lot. Discuss.

  2. John, thanks for reminding me why I love the Bay Area. HA!

  3. Luckily for him, Gordo has never tested his theory on me. He would be a sad, sad single boy right now if he had.

  4. I was in awe of the e-mail exchange and came up with nothing that could compete with, “You wish, stupid.”

  5. The only thing wrong with the Bay Area is how often people there congratulate themselves on living in “the best place in the world” (words straight outta some KRON weatherman’s mouth when I lived there.)

    Not saying it isn’t true.

  6. OK by me. Visit us in February someday. You will be even more so.
