Co-worker: it says inflate to 8 bar, how much is that?
Me: 800 kilopascals
CW: No, psi, how much is that in psi?
Me: Canada is a metric country, we don't do retard units
CW: fuck you, just tell me what it is in psi!
Me: sorry man, we don't speak stupid around here

Say, do you want it to be a threesome with your wife? Or a foursome with your wife and sister-in-law? I'm up for either. :P

Is there a gauge, or is your co-worker incapable of reading it?

Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him, drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of Death.."

The gauge is in psi but the label is in bars. Yeah, I know, real helpful there. I'm old enough that I still use the Imperial system and can do the conversions, but we're a metric country damnit!

Is this dude not aware that Google can do the conversion for him?
Eventually I'll get an image back in here.

But why should you? That coworker's gonna have to do the job on his own, isn't he? Then he can Google the conversion on his own(with one of those smart phone thingies people can't even go to the shitter without), and not bother you.

116.03 psi, on the remote chance he's both literate and lurking here.

CO-WORKER: You're working too hard, man! Slow that shit down.

ME: I'm sorry, what?

CO-WORKER: We want to keep this contract for the rest of the week!

ME: Wow. I'm going to have to adjust my paradigm here.

LATEST BOSS: So let me be absolutely clear - We have a very strict policy against sexual harassment here. This is including but not limited to verbal comments about appearance or sexuality, as well as inappropriate visual contact and, it should go without saying, physical contact.

ME: Of course, sir. I will remain professional and respectful at all times.

[TIME PASSES]

THE ONLY HOT LADY IN THE PLANT: No, Shark, stick in the hole this way! Shove it in harder!

OTHER GUY: That's what she said!

[GENERAL LAUGHTER]

ME: Huh. Very strict indeed. [twigs to the culture at the new workplace] I am outraged at your suggestions, madam!

THE ONLY HOT LADY IN THE PLANT: [claps me on the shoulder; I am now one of the guys of various genders]

ME: So, you wanna maybe have dinner after this?

THE ONLY HOT LADY AT THE PLANT: I have a boyfriend.

ME: Of course you do. Question stands.

THE ONLY HOT LADY AT THE PLANT: ... You're confident.

ME: You like it.

THE ONLY HOT LADY AT THE PLANT: I do. But the answer is still no.

MEL: A Scout is loyal.

And, eleven other things. Though you don't strike me as the reverent type.

I do disobey Obedient and Reverent. Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, and Clean I've got you on. There are also unspoken parts that I will forever uphold. An Eagle is an Eagle until he dies.

WHAM

ON-SITE BOSS: What the Goddamned motherfucking son of a- Somebody call this puddle an ambulance!

ME: [MOANING] It's cool, guys... I think I can hack it...

[time passes]

OVERBOSS: So, Shark. Because of your workplace incident, I'm going to be required to test you for drugs and alcohol.

ME: Well, OB, I can save you some time doing paperwork and tell you that any drug test you give me will show positive for pot due to off-duty use, and since I'm in body-wide pain on my day off, I'm drunk right now.

OVERBOSS: Well, shit... thanks for your honesty, but this probably isn't going to-

ME: Does it help if I say that I consider the matter fully-settled between the guy who fucked up, Medicaid, and myself, and that I'm not filing for workman's comp?

OVERBOSS ...I think we can work something out...
