    Almost every day there's something that someone will say/type that you take notice of, whether it's someone's joke, or something inspirational. It's often not more than a few hours a day that it will happen with me at my workplace, so I figured why not make a thread for quotes/quotable moments?

    Simple enough, just post a recent quote or conversation that really stood out to you, whether it was hilarious, sad, inspirational or thought provoking. I'd also appreciate no namedropping for anyone you might know IRL.


    Here's one I partook in recently.

    Coworker (Texas): "That horseshoe on your binder can't be upside-down. It's bad luck."
    Coworker (Crook): "Why does it matter?"
    Texas: "Cause it's bad luck."
    Me: "That Texan knowledge does come in handy."
    Texas: "It's not even a Texas thing, it's general knowledge that it's bad luck."
    Crook: "I just don't believe in superstition. Check this out. God is a woman."
    Me: "A black woman."
    Texas: ".........That horseshoe's bad luck."

    Sorry I don't have a recent quote right now, just a co-worker who sometimes comes out with/does stupid shit.

    Offered my colleagues some mints, then later on one of them asked me if they could have another one 'cause they're falling asleep. I'm sat next to another colleague and we're both quietly thinking 'how the fuck does having a mint wake you up?' but anyway I say "Sure, the packet's in my locker outside, help yourself to one."

    Moments later she walks back in with the packet and says to everyone "Anyone else want one?" before offering me one. While I'm sat there thinking 'hang on, they're my fucking mints' I just dryly say "no thanks" and she hands me the packet back before going back to her work station. Me and the other colleague just looked at each other in both amusement and bemusement before quietly laughing about it.

    This is the same person who once asked us if the thermometer in the fridge measured the room temperature, uses a vacuum cleaner without unravelling all of the cord and tried signing a sheet of paper that was still in its plastic folder, so I'm not that surprised.

    Well, a few days ago I apparently said one of the best insults my friends had heard.
    Sadly it was directed at myself.

    Not really a quote, but I guess it's something...

    "That's not how you make rotgut..."

    People at my workplace are like drones. Doing what they're told without any questions or backup. It would make me think of Metropolis, but in the context of my workplace, it fits better with an Ed, Edd n' Eddy quote.

    "Are you weak in the upper story?"
