Yeah, so, we’ve been working on this big project at work.
We’ve been working on it nonstop for months, and today, we finished “our deliverables” (allow me to translate the cubicle speak: that’s a massive Excel spreadsheet, Photoshop files and JPEG images) to hand off to IT, so the boss comes by my cube, and we had the following exchange.
Boss: “Good job, Sonia.” [high five]
Boss: “I guess I owe everyone lunch or something.”
Me: “Oh, you don’t need to do that. We’re just doing our jobs.”
Boss: “That’s true.”
Me: “Dang, I just talked myself out of free lunch.” [slaps hand to forehead] “D’oh”
