Last week, Boss man put up life size advertising poster by the front desk. It was co-branded with our Company name, the vendor company name and several products; there was a life size, attractive blond woman on the poster, and though she was upright, it looked like she was laying back on the grass. Boss man made a comment that it looked like there was a space right there beside her, and that was the closest he'd gotten to a date in a while.

I made the typical noises about how I DIDN'T NEED TO KNOW THAT, LA LA LA, SHUT UP DAVE and he laughed.

Today, he asked me to log into the vendor website and buy one of our products - I asked what the top level URL was. After he finished making fun of me for not being able to find it, he told me it was ON THE LIFE SIZED POSTER AT THE FRONT OF THE OFFICE!

I leaned over slightly - no poster. Which I pointed out to him.

Two seconds later, he pops out of his office and looks.

"Hey!" he yelps out. "She's gone!" Then he starts trolling the office. "Did someone steal my girlfriend?"

Meanwhile, I'm dying at my keyboard, trying not to FALL OFF MY CHAIR AND ROLL ON THE FLOOR LAUGHING, while my BOSS is grilling everyone in the office, "Where'd she go? Have you seen my girlfriend? Did you steal her?"

Yeah. Tears. Laughing SO hard.

*chuckle*

It's a helluva lot easier to drill down through boring sales reports and build pivot tables when my co-workers keep me so amused.

Man, makes me wish I lived up your way so I could work for said company as well.

Boss Man @ job 1 had no sense of humor for anything like that. (He was also almost a complete luddeite, but that only added to the frustration levels.)
