How to Make Me Mad

13 Nov

Need a sure fire way to enrage me?  Have I got an idea for you!  Simply decline the meeting appointment that I send to you, and suggest a new time.  Then, when I reschedule the meeting, make sure you’re 20 minutes late because you’ve forgotten*.

You’re lucky that British accent of yours makes me putty in your hands. . .

    So, no charming accent, no love & forgiveness?

    Nope, you’ll get a different version: hatred and betrayal. -CS

    they’re starting to walk all over you. I think you need to get pissed off more and verbalize it. They need to know that jaw dropping accents don’t matter……..(although we know they do, shhhhh, don’t tell them that).

    I totally didn’t tell him. I pretended to be angry and he had to cajole me. Being cajoled by someone with an accent is hot. -CS

    Ugh. That’s so annoying!

    I had a ridiculously awkward meeting this morning with my whole department. Morale is ridiculously low and everyone is looking for a new job, but we got together for pastries to congratulate ourselves for a job well done on our last project.

    And then the boss proceeded to sit in silence so no one felt like they could take their food and leave!

    Now that sounds like an awfully tragic meeting. Did anyone eat the pastries or did you just stare at your hands in silence? -CS

    I wish the people who rescheduled or were late in my office has british accents. I would find it a lot easier to forgive them.

    The world would be a much better place if everyone here had a British accent. I believe I’d be putting in a lot of over time. A lot. -CS

    Here’s how to make me angry: be a few days late with Aunt Flo and pretend like I’m the only potential dad.

    My period is late. You’re the only one I’ve been with. Ever. It’s yours. -CS

    British accents used to make me more sympathetic to my fellow humans. However, this changed when I married (and eventually UNmarried) a Brit. The mystique wore off.

    But, the allure of the accent!! Please just lie to me and tell me that you always loved the accent and that even though it didn’t work out, you miss it. -CS

    I HAVE a British accent and I think they are cringeworthy and boring and free of any pleasing features at all.

    I hear one in the street (there are LOTS of them in NYC) and I want to shout “GO HOME FOREIGNER!” then I remember I might as well be talking to myself…

    Oh, Guv! How can you think that?? If I worked with people with British accents I feel like I’d be delighted to go to meetings. People could talk about accounting and html coding and I’d hang onto every word. The accent is just too delicious for words! -CS

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while ( I think you posted a comment on Sharon in the City’s blog once), and yes I have one o’them British accents, I have to agree with Guv’ner (I had wondered whether you were a Brit from the screen name), not so much that I think its cringe worthy, but more the fact that at times I seem to be a life support system from an accent. I overheard the following on Monday after doing a conference presentation “I couldn’t understand a word he said, but I love his accent”. Sigh, I obviously really have no other redeeming features.

    I’m dreaming of your accent and I haven’t even heard it. How can people not understand what you’re saying?? They’re just stupid and you should feel free to slap them in the mouth. -CS

    My BFF lives in the UK and used to have the Ex talk to her on the phone because she loved the deep American accent.

    That is too funny. I’ve never heard of anyone liking an American accent. A Southern accent yes, but not just an American accent. -CS

    Ahh, but there is one big problem – I’m over the age of 25 ! 😉

    But I’ll make you an mp3 of me reading the phone book and that should keep you happy for a little while.

    Darn it! I might have to throw out the age rule if you have an accent. Perhaps I can make an exception just this one time. -CS

    Oh – that’s part of my daily job..scheduling and REscheduling interviews…sucks!

    How do you manage to get through the day without killing someone? -CS
