Monkey business makes the day shorter.

Posted by Gwen |

The other day I was sitting at my desk at the office, quietly toiling for The Man, when a guy came banging and clanging through the back door, pushing a huge cage.  I calmly turned to him and said, "Oh, good!  They finally approved the cage for my monkey."  He laughed and carried on with his business.


A couple minutes later he came back by and asked, "You're not really keeping a monkey back here, are you?"  I grinned and replied, "Not as far as you know."

I can't wait until he comes back to pick up the cage.

Is your monkey cheeky?

I hope the monkey doesn't throw poop at the guy when he comes back.

I doubt you'll be smiling when your office reeks of monkey poop.

"hello haha narf" wrote exactly what I was thinking! I bet you'll make the cageman's day.

I. Can't. STOP. LAUGHING.

I wish I could convince you to time it perfectly so that when the guy comes back, YOU are in the cage.

You know it'd be the funniest shit ever. EVER. EV-ER.

I'm sure the cage guy sat down to dinner with his wife that night and said, "Honey, you would not believe the lady I ran into today..." and I'm sure his story will keep getting better everytime he tells it.

At least it doesn't look like your monkey would rip off my face!

I'm thinkin' the same thing Doc is though...I bet that was one hell of a dinner table conversation at the cage-guy's house that night.

Monkeys should no be caged. They should be free. Now ourangatangs, lock thoes bitches up!

Soda and Candy said...

Aww, look at the cute little monkey!

Was Cage Guy cute? Maybe the monkey needs to be holding a phone number.

Either that or Sass's idea - you could be a cage dancer!!!

Hello and Kat: I actually work in a professional office but the IT guy had them brought in from the plant to move a mountain of old computer equipment.

Scope said...

Gwen, were you implying that we IT folx don't belong in a professional office building?
