Going back to the thread about how PC is your office. We had new carpet installed in our office earlier this year, the guys finished up just as our City Council was meeting. After the meeting I noticed that the installers had left a set of Knee pads. Since my assistant was newly divorced and dating again, I left them on her desk with a sticky note that said "I thought you use these on your next date". The Police Chief walked by as I was leaving the note, he didn't stop laughing for days.
When my assistant came inthe next day she read the note, looked at me and yelled "F@#$ You Dan"
I still giggle when I think about it.....and you know what? I don't know where the pads ever went.
This wasn't at a restaurant called "Dick's Last Resort" was it. They were a small cahin around when I was stationed in 29 Palms, CA the waitresses used to scream at you and ask you what the F*&k you wanted to eat a drink. A real classy place. No headlocks though.
I'll get nada from the staff. I don't them get them things for administrative professionals day. I hate these Hallmark pseudo holidays. Most guys have trouble remembering the big ones, birthdays and anniversies as it is.
