Sometimes I tell lies that are easy of detection, but I add parenthetical comments to throw people off the trail don't even realize I lied!

Yeah, I'm having the same problem. I would report it in trans mod but I since the docs have adjusted my meds I've steered clear of talking to brick walls.

Only the quoting is not working great for me. Everything else is kosher.

the "have you dined with us before" question is for them to find out how stupid you were to go back and eat their overpriced shit.

I was confused momentarily as well. Stitchy has made contact with his evil twin.

Lesbians are peculiar creatures. Their lies and their love of Pete Rose haircuts...we do not understand them.

Someone just called me from Grenada. I know because caller ID told me so. I picked up because I was intensely curious (young Caribbean ladies looking for love? Grenadian princes looking to give me money?) but the caller hung up on me

The value was in the consciousness raising.

what happens if you use regular limes in key lime pie?

You'd be a philistine with a lime pie.

Also, it wouldn't quite taste right (too sweet/not tart enough), and the color would probably be a little off.

Why not just answer your own phone then?

This actually happened to me a few times back when I was in The Matrix:

Secretary: "Dewey, Cheatham and Howe!"

Me: "This is Steve Smith. I would like to speak with Mr. Howe."

Secretary: "May I ask the purpose of the call?"

Me: "The purpose of the call is that I want to speak with Mr. Howe."


A couple of times I overheard secretaries with my company prescreening calls for me: "May I ask who is calling?" Funnzy thing is that, like Piobaire mentioned, she did not pass that info on to me so it appears that she was either being nosy or saw it as some sort of power gatekeeper ritual. I told her to quit interrogating callers and just send them through to me.

this is great... truly made me laugh. I'll have to use that next time instead of "it's none of your fucking business." seems like it may be a bit less abrasive...lol.

The business was a residential real estate brokerage. A call coming into the office could have been for any one of about 15 sales agents or the property management department. There was no need for me to have a direct line or a personal secretary.
