   Discussion: Office humor

I know lots of people here work in an office environment.  So what do you think? and is your job/boss anything like theirs?

I've not seen the movie yet (tho i do want to to) and between to two shows i prefer the BBC version.  David Brent seriously reminds me of my boss (tho not quite so catty-bitchy).  In fact i can see many of my co-workers in that show...esp Gareth and the pregnant lady from the Christmas specials.

I really didn't like the BBC version. Maybe it's because I started with the US version, but the characters don't seem nearly as developed and believable, or even likable. And it's just not... I dunno, funny. I love British humor as much as anyone, but it just didn't click with me.

Oh, but "Office Space" is brilliant.

I have never watched a second of any of them.

Yeah...we're gonna need to you to, go ahead and, um, watch Office Space immediately. So, if you could just, you know, do that, that would be...great.

Dilbert is my idea of office humor.

I used to work for the pointy haired boss. She said so many great stupid things.

When she heard I was putting the books onto the computer she said:
"That's just to print it right? It isn't going to do the calculations is it?"

My all-time favorite is:
"I don't drink the cheap brands of water. They taste like water. "
