At the end of the day

I was amusing myself during the last 1/2 hour of work today by listening to one of the salesmen talking with a customer. He uses the phrase "At the end of the day" (like...we won't know exactly how much the install will cost until a site visit at the end of the day) an awful lot so I started ticking a post-it note each time he said it. Now, I had to answer the phone a couple of times and talk with a customer briefly but my ticks were up to 12. It was only a 15 minute conversation! I had to leave my office and go down the hall to giggle a little.

The princess is back bitches! Did you miss me?

ha..ha..ha.... that's a riot! I'll catch someone using a specific phrase repeatedly and start mentally adding it up as well.

One of my favorites is the younger generation and their use of "like".. you know.. it's like.. totally like.. something that like.. you would do. hee..hee..

I have missed you. Love what you've done to the place.

My boss lives on the water. I've worked with him for over 10 years and each and every day he somehow manages to work into the conversation that he "lives on the water". AAARGH!!!

tl~thanks, it's the view from my cousin's cottage. i have been going there since i was very young and it's my peaceful place. i only get there once a year now for labour day weekend.

pinkpiddypaws~i thought it was funny too. he also says "if you don't mind" and "yeah, exactly right" too much. i wonder how many customers pick up on it.

suze~thanks! i have a couple thousand pics so i was digging. knew which one i wanted, just had to find it! he lives on water eh? every day? he must be very thin.

practicallyperfect~i happen to agreee completely. he's one of those prettyboy types who becomes much less attractive over time.
