One of the first things people ask me when I haven’t seen them for a while is this:
Those stories you run on Fridays…those aren’t true, are they? You make them up, don’t you?
HR people never ask me this. Because they know. But people in regular jobs, where they aren’t so exposed to all the ways people can be stupid…those are the people who wonder. I only wish I could go back to being a regular person who doesn’t know that yes, they’re true, because people are stupid.
So for you, regular people, I offer:
Because people really ARE that stupid.
Tales of the Cluefree appear pretty much every Friday. Past stories are here.
