Actual Conversations With Real People, Vol. 5

Welcome to another installment of Actual Conversations With Real People, in which...well, you know. Today's real person is a co-worker.

Co-worker: "I need a knife. You look like a guy who always has a knife handy, do you have one I can use?"

Me: "What does THAT mean?"


(beat)


Me: "Yeah, here, use my Swiss Army knife."



- FIN -

I laughed out loud there. WTF? You should have pulled a Paul Hogan and yanked out a hunting knife and gone, "Call that a knife, THIS is a knife!"

Girl Interrupted said...

hahaha ... somebody looks like a psycho! :P

BeckEye said...

You should've rifled around in your bag (you look like a guy who carries a backpack) and said, "Hmmm...doesn't look like I have a knife....oh, I have a grenade! Will that work?"

Kimizzy said...

Well, it either means you look crazy or you look southern. As the two are synonymous, just smile and say "Thanks," because life's a lot easier when people think you'll cut them.

red said...

Whatever! That means you look manly! You've apparently got everyone fooled.

LOL @ Becky. You totally seem like a "backpack guy."

the iNDefatigable mjenks said...

So, you'd also be the guy to talk to if I needed a little plastic toothpick.

The Imaginary Reviewer said...

You should have added, "You might want to wash the blood off first". That would really get them.

words...words...words... said...

I know some people that are about to be bopped with a very heavy backpack.

Cora said...

You and my brother could be twins. Which I guess means you could be my brother. But anyway ~ Boy Scout, right? Uh-huh.

;-)

Soda and Candy said...

You should stop wearing your Boy Scout uniform to work, for reals.

Dr Zibbs said...

My brother in law always has a multi tool handy. I always laugh when he pulls it out (twss)

But I do have a love of my Swiss Army knife that's great for bringing to parties to open neer and wine and killing people.

Haven't used it for the 3rd use yet/

TishTash said...

Don't bandy about your copy of The Catcher in the Rye. That's a serial killer dead giveaway.

~E said...

I always carry floss and a sewing kit.

And antibacterial gel.

And a first aid kit.

And toothbrush and toothpaste and pain and stomach medicines.

And a rosary.

I'm a boyscout with boobs.

The Diva on a Diet said...

I don't know which made me laugh more ... your conversation or Kimizzy's comment. Good stuff, all!

Greta said...

He's just saying...Hey dude, you look like a man's man.
