Eavesdropping

One of my cubemates just offered the other cubemate some jalapeño Pringles, which he pronounced with a "j" instead of an "h." (Okay, so he's not into Mexican food. Doesn't know how to pronounce "jalapeno." No biggie.)

After the other cubemate accepted the chips, he actually smelled them and said, "Nice bouquet." He continued to say something about them while chewing -- I unfortunately couldn't hear -- and then commented, "Strong finish."

It totally cracked me up. He was as serious about these chips as wine tasters are about tasting wine. :) Clearly, I need to enlarge my world so I, too, can get this much enjoyment out of jalapeño Pringles.

    Well, the Director of Human Resources (My boss) asked me for some fish chips that I had bought at Carl's Jr. I told him to get his own...lol..no kidding, noone messes with my food.

    I don't eat at my cubicle anymore... My office space stinks of coffee and fish chips. :(

    Sorry, this incident reminded me of that..

    I used to work at Taco Bell, and one of my coworkers always pronounced it "tor-til-uhz." It didn't matter how often someone said "tor-tee-uhz," she just wouldn't get the hint.
