As most of you don’t know, when I’m not gladiating intergalactically, I’m an IT technician at a pretty big sales company. I have a coworker here in sales who keeps telling me that she used to be an AS/400 support specialist at her former job. Seriously, every time I see her, she tells me this. Every time. She started back in 2006 and the first time I saw her, the conversation went something like this:
Her: So I need a keyboard tray and a special keyboard because of my wrist.
Me: Oh OK.
Her: I used to be in AS/400 support.
I thought it was just me, but several months later I stopped by her desk or her neighbor’s desk to work on some issue and she was in the middle of chatting up her neighbor and sure enough, she mentioned about 5 or 6 times that she used to be in IT and she used to do AS/400.
Another coworker here works as an AS/400 specialist used to be her coworker, so sometimes she mixes it up and says that she used to be in AS/400 and she used to work with this guy (I’ll call him Guy).
I kid you not, ladies and genialmen. She does this to not only me, but my fellow IT techs as well, so at one point I joked with my fellow techs that every time she tells me that, I’m going to tell her that I used to be an Airborne paratrooper (which I was, this isn’t some kind of elaborate lie or anything). I’ve done this on a handful of occasions now and during one conversation with her, I matched her phrase for phrase 3 or 4 times until I just couldn’t keep a straight face any more.
We just traded our alleged catchphrases once again this afternoon. I haven’t seen her in several months and sure enough when she stopped by my desk to ask me something, she mentioned that she used to be in AS/400 and she used to work with Guy. I replied that I used to be an Airborne paratrooper and she looked at me baffled for but a moment, the told me that was very impressive.
She doesn’t otherwise show any autistic or savant-like qualities. She is friendly and talks and interacts with everyone in a normal fashion. She’s a bit messy at her desk, but she otherwise appears absolutely normal.
So my question is, am I a jerk and/or will I be a jerk if I continue to do this or is this kind of funny and/or maybe she will figure out what I’m doing or should I just give up because it really doesn’t seem that funny anymore or something else?
