Funny stuff at the office today. My boss and I argue ALL the time to the point that people say we sound like a crotchety old married couple. I think it's because I'm stubborn and opinionated and he really likes to argue. Add that to having worked for the dude for 7 years (in a month from today) and it's pretty much a recipe for some hilarious dialogue.
Here's what we talked about today. I edited some of the intermingled conversation, dental jargon, and a few pauses to add comic emphasis.
Me: "You know, if you call me young lady, I therefore have license to call you old man."
Dr. T: "How about calling me" *pauses to think* "Your Supreme Excellency."
Me: *trying not to gag on the holy pompous caught in my throat* "I'll call you Your Supreme Excellency when you call me Your Royal Highness, the Princess of Everything."
Other assistant in the office who walked by: "I'll call both of you a Royal Pain in the Neck."
Cue uproarious laughter.
