The Shoutbox
Yeah, that YouTube app on mobile is insane. Not only do you have to watch an ad, it swallows the entire interface, comments and all. I can't tell you how many ads I've clicked just scrolling through comments and that advert expands itself into my click zone. Wow it's aggressive.

Probably just makes the ads more efficient and targeted so you don’t mind.

See…this is why they need a robot receptionist.
Social faux pas diary: was introduced to a new receptionist. Not sure why, as I’ll be out of their hair in 2 weeks, but anyway. The girl I know and like has been on holiday and apparently isn’t coming back. With all this information at my disposal, and seeing the clueless look in the new child’s eyes, I commended, “Oh, dear.”

The building manager who introduced him, and who herself is not much older, said indignantly, “What do you mean, ‘Oh, dear’?”

And there I was. Oh, people.

Too early in the day too watch that masterpiece. I can’t go outside with these goosebumps.

I have quit offering congratulatory pleasantries to others in the form of “good job” or “way to go”.

Instead, I reach into the back of my throat, with a raspy filter and belt out, “We don’t need another heee-rooow!!!

95% of white collar? Sounds close enough.
