So I had eight (8!) meetings last Thursday. Most about pricing; most about haggling over items in NorCal; most involving a core set of three of us. Around meeting six, it was 3 in the afternoon and we were a little punch-drunk. The NorCal Produce guy is trying to recall various subdivisions of his territory, specifically the northern cities (Redding, Sequoia, Eureka, etc.) because produce prices vary wildly in that area of the state. "Who is in District 12, anyway?" He asks aloud to no one in particular. I chime in meekly, "Katniss lives there. But there's not much left of it, now."

Crickets.

:lol:

I was in a meeting today trying to get a waiver allowing a certain procedure on an airfield, a procedure which I argued was extremely safe as there had never been any examples of a failure occurring. When the certifying officer asked if I had any evidence to back up my request I replied, "Well, I have plenty of hearsay and conjecture. Those are kinds of evidence."

BTW, I did have actual evidence, but how could I pass up an opportunity to use a Lionel Hutz quote in a meeting?

In a conference room today I was giving a briefing on a cost savings project for 2016 and when asked if I could give more details I stated "I'm still collating" Silence ensued....apparently no avid Sci-Fi fans in the room.

It was. Personally, I find lines from comedies work better, but that one just seemed to fit. It's like, how often will I get a chance to say "Let Jesus f--K you!" in a meeting?

Personally, I've decided that one of my 2016 goals is to find a perfectly appropriately work situation in which to say "you never fuck me and I always have to drive."

Suggested career choices:
- Bus Driver
- Home Food Delivery (pizza, chinese, etc)
- NYC Taxi Driver (I think I may have actually heard this once or twice)

I'm pretty sure there are loads of cinematic examples where the pizza delivery person has sex.

That was the entire plot of Loverboy.

Spying something on the stand of previously viewed dvds while leaving the gas station I was prompted to give a heartfelt "Ooh...Navy Seals!"

Not exactly a movie line, but I just worked "Damn you, Zach Galligan!" into a conversation.

Other guy (a cosplayer in the 501st troop): "We're trooping a show next month. Our table is supposed to be next to the guy who played Dak in Empire Strikes Back. John Rhys-Davies, Zach Galligan, and Fred 'The Hammer' Williamson are also going to be there."
Me: "That's pretty cool. Well, except the Zach Galligan part. Damn you, Zach Galligan!"

Not in a meeting, but it's been the only time I've ever been able to use this line appropriately:

We've got a new pup, and unlike every other dog I've ever seen, this one isn't all that into dog food. Cat food? Sure. Twigs and leaves? Absolutely. Other animals' feces? Bring it on!

Anywho, my wife is sitting beside him, coaxing him to his breakfast and he's just sitting there. She says to him, "Don't just look at it," which prompted me into stating the obvious, "Don't just stare at it, eat it."

Wasted on both my wife and the dog.
