But of course I couldn't just leave it at that.
me: you got a dork awardIn the current economic climate, I'm thrilled that Joe has a job and that he's respected and valued by the executive hamster wranglers. I also realize any award or recognition is a big deal when they're constantly reducing staff. But could the amount BE any dorkier? (I totally said that in my best Chandler Bing voice - try it, it's fun!)
me: you know what 1337 is, right?
Joe: 1K b4 tax?
me: that's the geekiest thing ever
not complaining, but seriously
Whatever. The money was green and
P.S. No, it was NOT $1k after the taxes were taken out. Wishful thinking, dear husband.
