Here's some of what I've learned.
Asking for a workable solution to any complaint is asking too much.
It's more important to take 15 minutes to iron out the history and fault related to a minor problem than it is to agree on the obvious solution in 2. Apparently I should shut up and "let the process play out".
We don't have green chairs, they're Olive, or Kiwi, or some other thing I thought was food.
All babies are cute, and if I don't agree it's better to keep it to myself.
It takes 6 hours to bond extensions into a white womens hair, but only 3 1/2 to weave them into a black woman's. Dreadlocks are an all day affair.
A hairdressers tip is more than I pay for a haircut.
If she says her girlfriend is "ok looking", she's ok looking, no matter how hot or hideous she is.
The phrase "hit it like the fist of an angry God" is a little over the top.
Laughing your ass off at someone who trips over their own feet, or closes their own thumb in the desk drawer is "insensitive".
The words whiney and bitch can only apply to wimpering female dogs without uncomfortably prolonged silence. (I only found out later that it was uncomfortable)
When one of them suggests that we stop celebrating everybody's birthdays with "a lunch", because it's "a pain in the ass", it doesn't apply to her
Slideshows of cute little bunnies, kittens, and frogs with a snail on their head should NEVER be amended with pictures of dogs humping ducks, or a moose mounting a buffalo statue. Ever.
I'm thinking the office needs some of these
