Do you tell them? At what point do you feel comfortable enough to tell them?
I have a colleague and a volunteer who tells me them sometimes. They are mild, but enough where you normally wouldn’t tell them in this kind of context:
Why was the snowman happy?
He heard the snowblower was coming!
He thinks I am rather strait-laced, which I kind of am in a professional workspace. But I wouldn’t get the jokes if I was completely strait-laced, and in my heart of hearts I am as filthy and low-brow as anyone. I would like to make a few jokes back and indicate I am not, but I am having a really hard time relaxing my work/home rule enough to do so.
Thoughts? Do you tell these jokes? Do people tell them to you? How does it go over?
