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.

Check.

I know that Whole Foods makes a few appearances in this here thread, but -

Guy in front of me at express line - 14 items, 1 bag, $120 including tax. He didn't have anything that looked particularly exotic, except for some fancy shrink wrapped eel

"Style" blogs that are so wrapped up in their own hype that they cannot see their own absurdity; just seen an article entitled "the statement poncho" - because we've all been wearing our every day ponchos in a horribly boring way?

I was at a rainy Dolphins game last year and there was a fellow wearing a yellow raincoat where he'd written "Fuck the Jets!!" on the back in black marker. I think that's what they are referring to as a 'statement poncho'

the bots.
the random postings that at first glance, seem to make some kind of sense, but when you actually read the sentences it is just a lot of styfo buzzwords mushed together.
what's their angle? they seem to be playing some kind of long con on me and i don't like it, not one bit.

I've noticed a very annoying tactic amongst telemarketing sub-humans in the last year. Someone just did this to my cell phone number (which I thought was illegal to telemarket to?). I answer and get something along the lines of, "Thanks for calling! The first 100 callers get...."

WTF? Do you really think a Jedi mindtrick like that is going to work on people? You called me, asswipe.

Lol, I usually waste as much of their time as I can.

I got one guy to call back 4 times wasting 5-10 minutes each time, they never called again after that.

I wonder why all the lights that appear on the inside of my eyelids are neon green and purple (fell asleep in the bathtub)? Does everyone have neon green and purple lights?

I don't get why one of my coworkers, who is a nice older woman who is clearly a bit lonely, thinks seeing me sitting at my desk, concentrating very hard is an invitation to comment on how intense and focused I look. She's retiring soon, so I'm betting she'll have some free time. I wonder if I can convince her to come to my house when the baby is born and stand in the nursery yelling, "BE QUIET!!! THE BABY IS ASLEEP!!!" It would really play to her strengths.

I took a bath with my girlfriend the night before she left on an airplane. It was disgusting.

She wants you to boan her one more time before she leaves

Edit - this was for MrG. I'm sure pB did some bathtub boaning

Most of them are copy/pastes from earlier posts in the thread. I think the point is to build up postcount so they can post links, or something to that effect.
