I have a co-worker named Charkey.
Yesterday I got new staples for him.
He’s been out of staples for a few months now.
He’s been rather upset with me due to the forementioned fact.
So now that his tummy is full, everyone walks by and wants to use him.
I say to him, “Charkey, you are just being USED by these people. Open your eyes, man. They don’t CARE about you at all. They just use you for a cheap laugh”
but quite frankly, he’s an attention whore. He totally loves the unending attention.
so normally, I would say, “Fine, WHATEVER”
but come around midnight, he calls me, drunk, crying about his “friends” .
I have no idea how to tell him that there’s a new stapler in the office.
It staples four times as many sheets as he does, quicker and cheaper.
I KNOW exactly what will happen:
Charkey will get all upset and complain about these “foreigners” taking over “American” jobs (nevermind the fact that Charkey was created in China)
you can see him here, midway down:
