Overheard in the office amusement

As some of you know, I keep a blog Overheard at KSU to track the crazy things people say at Kent State. I’ll continue taking submissions, but obviously as I will no longer be in Kent to hear random conversations, I’ll probably pass it on. Kali is already one of the posters, but I’ll probably solicit a few more Stater kin to keep it up.

The idea was based on Overheard in the Office, which is what this post is about. I just wanted to share some hilarious comments I saw on there for your amusement:

Receptionist #1: How could we have known what happened 10 thousand years ago if Jesus lived only two thousand years ago?
Receptionist #2: Because people before Jesus wrote things down in the Bible.
Receptionist #1: There were people before Jesus?

Young ad executive #1: Anybody want a Jamba Juice? Sam the intern is going to make a run.
Young ad executive #2: Yeah, but why are you getting a Jamba Juice? You just ate lunch.
Young ad executive #1: I don’t really want one, I just feel bad the intern has nothing to do.

Head trainer: Let’s face it, if you could be all that you could be, you wouldn’t be working here…
Class: [Silence.]
Trainee #1: [Applause.]
Trainees #2 and #3: [Applause.]

Managing editor on speakerphone: Do you know how to adjust columns in Excel?
Assistant: No…
Managing editor: What do you know?
Assistant: Um… I know that when a man and a woman get together, they —
Managing editor: —Come to my office.

Yeah. That’s my amusement for the day.

It would be kind of fun to start one of these collections of “Overheard in the Newsroom” because some funny stuff gets said. :) Maybe when I have some free time, I’ll do that.
