Office Distractions

Accusing Distraction

Tuesday morning. Esan, a brand new co-worker, excitedly told me about someone she used to work with.

Esan: Yoshke! I’d introduce someone to you! You’ll like him. He’s hotΒ  and a real gentleman! His name is ^&%##.
Yoshke: Esan, I’m already seeing someone. I’m a one-man man. I’m one loyal, trustworthy guy.
Esan: Wushooo…
Yoshke: Ano namang tingin mo saken? MALANDI?
Everyone in the office, who, apparently, was listening: OO!

Hala. Sabay-sabay pa.

Singit pa nung isa, “At feeling mo HINDE?” Haha.

Henaku. Hindi naman talaga…

Repeating Distraction

One boring afternoon at the office.

Yoshke: If I tell you that I can sketch and paint, will you believe me?
Emcy: Yeah.
Yoshke: Eeeeeh. You shouldn’t have said “yes.” I wanted you to say “no.” Then I’d tell you “Yes, I can!”
Emcy: Hahaha.
Yoshke: Hmmm. I hate you! It didn’t go the way I wanted it to. So we’re gonna do it again!
Emcy: Haha. Okay.
Yoshke: Emcy, If I tell you that I can sketch and paint, will you believe me?
Emcy: No.
Yoshke: Yes, I can!

Parang tanga lang kami.

Confusing Distraction

Yoshke: Emcy, pabili naman ako ng cupped noodles (or cup noodles?). Nissin ha, Nissin. Seafood flavor. Nissin ha! NISSIN!
Emcy: Ah sige, anong noodles? Lucky Me Supreme?

Anong mahirap intindihin sa sinabi ko. Sabihin nyo saken. Anooo?!?!?!

Smelly Distraction

Wednesday afternoon. Well, Mimay isn’t my officemate. She’s a college friend who is now based in San Diego, California. But she still manages to give my third-world life a little shake occasionally over Yahoo! Messenger. One time, I was busy killing myself with marketing stuff…

Mimay: Help meeee! I need a pop song that’s bagay sa aking bowsez.
Yoshke: Mariah’s We Belong Together.
Mimay: Bakla, hindi ko kaya yun.
Yoshke: Kaya mo yan. (Ano ba naman ang mamatay ka sa kapipilit abutin yung last chorus?)
Mimay: Hindi ko kaya yun! Tsaka kelangan pop na pop. As in pop. And i know nothing about poop
Mimay: *pop
Mimay: not poop
Mimay: hahahahaha
Mimay: I know a lot about poop
Mimay: hahahahah
Yoshke: Wahaha. Tawang-tawa ako, tangena ka, ibo-blog kita.

Kaya ayan, binlog ko sya.

Suicide-Inducing Distraction

Night out with the clients at Red Box GreenBelt 3. While someone from the clients was ruining a perfectly ruined song singing Abba‘s Chiquitita. I know the song is about moving on, supposed to be encouraging, uplifting. But methinks the record is rubbish. Bleeeh.

Yoshke: Abba pala ang kumanta nyan?!
Kat: Oo naman.
Yoshke: Seryoso? Kaya pala mataas ang suicide rate sa Sweden eh!

Swaggering Distraction

I’ve just noticed a Grade School friend’s status message on Yahoo! Messenger.

Everyone is invited to my birthday party in Ancona, Italy.

Tangenamu rin.

The Best Distraction of All

Yesterday. A YM conversation with someone who likes to call himself “Shy Guy.”

Shy Guy: Nakakainis ka
Shy Guy: Naiinis ako sa yo
Yoshke: HALA
Yoshke: Bakit na naman?
Yoshke: πŸ™
Yoshke: Andyan ka pa?
Shy Guy: Naiinis ako sa yo
Yoshke: Bakit nga kasi?
Yoshke: Sabihin mo kasi kung bakit.
Shy Guy: Kasi mahal na yata kita

Ayun, nakangiti ako sa office buong araw. Kinikilig lang. If all distractions are like this one, BRING IT ON! Distract me anytime. Haha. πŸ™‚
