I’m going to keep this brief, but this moment was so batshit insane I had talk about it.
I’m not an old man, but I am older than a lot of my coworkers (technically subordinates, but I’m not a dick so I would never use that term).
There’s two twenty something girls in my “pod” as they call it, a “pod” is basically just an open work area designated for people that share a similar purpose, and these two girls LOVE to go out to lunch together (I have to listen to this shit every week):
“Where do you want to go?”
“There’s this new bistro that supposed to be good.”
“Let’s go here.”
“No, let’s go here.”
THIS GOES ON FOR FOUR HOURS!!!!!!! EVERY WEEK.
This last week they went to Arby’s. Fucking Arby’s. Think about this. They went to a place that’s perpetually awful BY CHOICE. But that’s not why I wrote this. Here’s the actual transcript that lead to this conclusion:
“Where should we go today?”
“Have you ever been to Arby’s?”
“No, what’s that?”
“It’s amazing, we should go there.”
“What do they serve?”
“Like sandwiches and stuff.”
“Kinda but this is better. It’s hot and the curly fries will change your life.”
THE CURLY FRIES WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
This statement just made the CEO of Arby’s life complete. So congratulations girls, Steven Arby’s can now die happy (I have no idea who the CEO of Arby’s is and I don’t care enough to look).
Her life is going to change because she ate fast food curly fries. I’m going to let that sink in while I abstain from the urge to slap my co-workers.
