That's What She Said Thursday

A coworker came over to my desk to show me this big rubber stamp that he had. He was trying to demonstrate but when he stamped it, it was all blurry and I couldn't read it.

Bone Junior: I cant even READ that!

Coworker: Well, its too big and its hard to get it all down.

Bone Junior: That's what she said!!

-----------------------------------------

I asked the same coworker to plug in my little black jump drive thing (which has since been named Pablo Negrito).

Coworker: Why cant you just plug it in?

Bone Junior: Remember you had to do it for me last time? It's a funny angle and I couldn't get it in right....snicker snicker....That's what she said!!

-----------------------------------------

Later on, I asked the same coworker to plug in Pablo Negrito again.

Coworker: I really don't understand why you can't just do this yourself. It's not that hard.

Bone Junior: That's what she said!

Coworker: (After several minutes of trying to plug it in) It went right in last time!

Bone Junior: That's what she said!!

Coworker: You know, you're really not being very helpful.

Bone Junior: That's what she said!!

Coworker: (Dryly) Wow. That just gets funnier and funnier every time you say it.

------------------------------------------

Also, at staff meeting today, the other counselors and I were doing group notes and trying to come up with a better way to describe a client who'd had an emotional outburst that was misdirected against staff.

"Inappropriately projected? Improper projection? Projected outburst? Bone Junior, what do you think?" the clinical director asked, and all eyes turned to me.

In that moment, I was caught off guard at being asked my opinion; and I kid you not, I blurted out the first thing that came to my mind.

"Emotional ejaculation?" Blink. Blink.

Blank stares.

Sigh.

Yeah, I know. I know.

I've used the "That's what she said" a couple of times only to get a blank almost confused stare.

I hate it when such good comedy is wasted.

You said "rubber". Heh, heh.
